Acid Rain: The Environment, Its Trees, and Solutions to the Problem
Famous inventor, Buckminster Fuller said, ?Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we?ve been ignorant of their value.? Acid rain, more formally known as acid deposition, is one contaminant that scientists are starting to show a great deal of concern for. The effects of acid rain are devastating to our environment. It particularly shows harmful side-effects on trees, which happen to be a human and animal air source. To understand acid rain and its effects on trees, my paper covers the process in its entirety. It is an overview of what acid rain is, how it is formed, and how it damages trees. It also contains solutions that involve the government, factories, and society. All of these components are important to understand how acid rain can be prevented and why it damages our environment.

Firstly, acid rain is somewhat of a broad term that can be defined as; ?acid that falls out of the atmosphere.? Acid deposition can come in two forms, wet
