I wanted to remember what clean water looked like
It is only 2050 and our world is dying . Carbon dioxide from fossil-fuel power plants , vehicles and oil refineries are causing acid rain. Wild life, and forests are dying . There are no more fresh water lakes and streams . When was the last time you had fresh meat or sea food?
What is acid rain ayway
It is rain that contains acidic components, like sulfuric acid
Acid rain can make soil and water uninhabitable . As the level of acidity rises, fish die off. Most can't survive a water pH below 5. When the pH becomes a 4, the lake is dead.
We knew this could happen. The pH scale measures acidity and alkalinity. 7 is the middle and is neutral. 1 is the most acidic. Most of our natural bodies of water are now at 5. That's too acidic for life to survive.
If only we had reduced our use of fossil fuels in time, stopped using combustible engines and turned to renewable energy sooner. Now we can never return here again.
