Acid Rainby Peter Tyson
Acid rain caused by the burning of fossil fuels is harming the planet's trees, lakes, soils, ancient and modern structures, and even human beings. The sulfur and nitrogen compounds spewed into the atmosphere by factories, power plants, and automobiles are making ordinary rainwater more acidic, and increasing numbers of plants and animals are threatened by this growing assault on their ecosystems. Acid Rain describes the history of this pollution problem from its origins during the Industrial Revolution to its devastating effects on today's woodlands, aquatic ecosystems, and wildlife.
