After declining for a decade, worldwide sulfur dioxide emissions rose again in 2000 due largely to international shipping and a growing Chinese economy. A new analysis of sulfur emissions since the beginning of the Industrial Age will help researchers predict future changes in climate and determine present day effects on the atmosphere, health and the environment.
