What is acid rain?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What is acid rain?       
What is acid rain? Rain containing dissolved acids falls to the ground, damaging trees, crops and other wildlife as well as harming water supplies. Acid rain is caused by air pollutants such as nitric and sulphuric acids, which are released by burning coal, oil or petrol.

Damage due to acid rain has destroyed huge areas of trees in North America, Europe and parts of Asia, and has had serious effects on forestry. Attempts are being made to limit the damage by removing nitrogen and sulphur from fuels before they are burned, and by reducing emissions from factories.

Huge amounts of air pollution are produced as industries develop. In many countries industrial pollution is now controlled, but it still causes huge damage to health and the environment in many developing countries.
