Factories, cars and other manmade products, produce gases like Sulphur Dioxide and Carbon Dioxide.
The gases are absorbed by the clouds and this makes the rain more acidic, forming acid rain.
When it rains, the acid rain falls into the limestone on the ground making the soil more acidic. This also affects the plant life and their growth as some plants are very sensitive.
The acid rain can also cause buildings, housing and other non- living things to become weaker, wear away and then crumble.
The acid rain also gets into lakes and rivers making the pH of the water lower and more acidic. This affects the ecosystems as the animals that drink from water that is now more acidic and not as healthy for them.
We need to monitor the acidity of the soil, lakes and rivers to make sure they don't become too acidic. To try and stop this we can use alternative energy sources and keep restoring our damaged environments.
