I was just wondering how acid rain can pollute the world...If its just rain,, like where does it pollute the world the most? hmmm...
what happens, is pollution from factories (smoke) and oil spills, toxic gasses etc get 'sucked' up into the clouds when the clouds evaporate the water up into them, then the clouds move around the world and the next time they rain, all the gasses are rained out. it can cause metal to rust etc because of all the pollutants. also if acid rain rains over the sea, it can kill fish.
It pollutes the soil and ground water and waterways where the toxin is absorbed into fish which are afterwards eaten, also pasture is affected and consequently dairy products are tainted, also crops can be affected most acid rain falls where most of the pollution which causes it rises into the atmosphere
Acid rain doesn't pollute the world it caused by pollution in the atmosphere. the rains and then acids in the air react with the water to create acid rain. All acid rain really does is destroy metals, stone and marble.
Acid rain is caused by pollution
