What About Acid Rain? by City Tech blogger Kevin Geronimo

Most of us agree today that burning fossil fuel pollutes our atmosphere. The exhaust from burning fossil fuel causes an increase in global temperatures because of the greenhouse effect. When we pollute our atmosphere global warming is a concern but a more noticeable problem is acid rain. I learned from Nat Geo that acid rain contains high levels of nitric and sulfuric acids. As the acidic rain falls on forest and water streams, it can kill many sensitive species of fish, crayfish, clams and other aquatic animals. This type of rain can also harm trees by polluting the soil and damaging the leaves of the tree. For reasons like these, we need to find alternative fuel sources and better manage the energy we receive from power plants so that they burn less fossil fuel
