Sebastião Salgado documents the torched Kuwaiti oil wells. In January and February 1991, as the United States-led coalition drove Iraqi forces out of Kuwait, Saddam Hussein's troops retaliated with an inferno. At some 700 oil wells and an unspecified number of oil-filled low-lying areas they ignited vast, raging fires , sending billowing black clouds over the region and thousands of tons of nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
