Bradford, A., & Biggs, B. (2022, March 16). Acid rain: Causes, effects and solutions. Livescience.Com. https://www.livescience.com/63065-acid-rain.html
This article explains how acid rain was first being studied in the late 50s, where it took until the early 70s to realize that it was a regional environmental issue. Due to pollution, mainly C02 emissions, acid rain is created when sucked up into the atmosphere to be turned into sulfuric acid. This then rains down, not really as liquid, and greatly affects the ecosystems it lands in. This acid rain affects basically everything it touches such as plants, soil, water, and even man made objects. They kill plants and leave many animals’ entire ecosystems ruined, then it lowers the PH levels of the water, killing the fish in it. There are many solutions to solving this problem, however none can reverse the damage that has already been done. The main solution would be to stop burning fossil fuels, which release C02, and use alternative electrical energy sources such as solar, wind, and geothermal. In general, acidic rain is a major environmental problem which if not solved will continue to eat away at our environment until we are left with nothing.
This article demonstrates the cause, effects, and solutions of acid rain. It paints a vivid description of what will happen if we continue to pollute and release C02 as acidic rain will only increase. It shows and explains how the acidic rain creates a large impact on most ecosystems, something not just animals but us humans rely on too. I like how it provides a couple of solutions to help slow down the acidic rain levels, however these are all small and would take all of us a long time to make an impact. I enjoy that it gives a very basic and easy to understand knowledge about the situation, but we are at the point where we need to take action now and stop more acidic rain from forming and killing our environment.
