  1. Acid rain can come in the form of snow, fog and even dry materials on the ground. What do you think are some ways we can reduce these pollutants as individuals?

  2. Video does not load for me 🙁

  3. Русские есть?

  4. They told us acid rain would kill us in 1980…..STILL WAITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Cars form nitrogen oxide too, the engines temperature can get so high it causes nitrogen and oxygen in the air to react, creating nitrogen oxide – nitrogen monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. It causes choking photochemical smog at ground level too, and mixes with sulfur dioxides from the burning of impure fuels. Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide mix with the water vapour in clouds, causing acid rain to fall. Acid rain kills animals and their habitats as well as making lakes acidic. US HUMANS ARE HORRIBLE.

  6. Just curious, why volcanoe ashes also lead to acid rain?

  7. The moment when your teacher makes you find out the meaning of acid rain.

  16. When I was a kid I used to love to go out in the rain, that was in the late 70's though so there really wasn't anything to worry about such as acid rain because we didn't have all the technology to ruin the beautiful Earth that we live in today. Now children just stay in playing Fortnite and calling each other asking then what flavor potato chip they're eating. But when I was growing up we were practically forced to go outside because there was nothing else to do unlike kids now a days.

  34. In 2014 it rained in Mumbai and I remember my skin got tanned which was exposed to rain as I was wearing tshirt. My hands and face n neck became dark in that rain, I guess it was acid rain.

  35. “These gases react with water, oxygen, and other substances to form Sulfuric and Nitric Acid”…

    Ooooo kaaaay. So, may you please explain what these other substances are? And possibly elaborate on the process? That would be great! Thank you.
