They say they've finally found out what causes acid rain. Dude this would totally help our report on Acid Rain.
Ooo...Thanks for the tip, I'm gonna check it out now
Huh? No why?
Hello. I am Shannon from Chanel 6. Today we are going to talk to Mr Arnold about a fascinating scientific discovery.
Hi Shannon, so let's get right to it. Nowadays, rainwater has a pH less than 5.6. This is not good because acid rain has a harmful effect on plants, animals and humans. It is caused when compounds like sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are released into the air.
Acid rain is caused by people burning oil, fossil fuels, petrol, gas and coal. Oil, gas and coal release harmful a gas-like, sulfur dioxide, into the atmosphere. Oil and petrol in motor vehicles cause nitrogen oxide. These 2 gases that are released into the atmosphere is the main causes of acid rain.
Let me explain this to you Shannon...
gases get combined to form water droplets
SO2 CO2 NO2From factories
Acid rain could increase the acidity levels in the soil. rivers, lakes and seas. This will destroy roots and leaves of forests and land for farmin and kill aquatic life.
