Why Is It Bad?

Acid rain is bad because it is negatively affecting not only us, but it is poisoning of food, killing our crops, and maiming our cattle and horses and hogs. If we don't do something, acid rain will wash away our entire existence on the face of Planet Earth.

"Congress created the Acid Rain Program in Title IV of the 1990 Clean Air Amendments. The overall goal of the program is to acheive significant environmental and public health benefits through reductions in emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), the primary causes of acid rain" (Environmental Protection Agency).

We need to fix acid rain, and quickly. This is a life or death situation.
