Huh?
00:08
I know, I will describe what acid rain is to you!
00:13
Acid Deposition
00:14
Acid Precipitation
00:20
acid rain is a major environmental problem!
00:26
Rainfall at acidic levelfrom atmospheric pollution

Wet and dry forms fall onto cars, buildings, trees, and lakes

It is bad for the fish that live in our lakes
01:59
It is bad for humans

Acidity is measured with the use of a pH scale 
02:07
0 (zero) the most acidic to 14 (fourteen) the most basic
02:12
The substance that is neither basic or acidic is called "neutral" and this has a pH of 
02:22
Nature depends on a balanced system
02:27
pH levels being around 5.0
02:29
All the differenthuman activities have continued to makeacid rain worsen. 
02:37
What is being done to fix the problem?
02:42
in the United States we have been making a tremendous amountof progress in reducing the issues that contribute to acid rain.
02:47
1990 Title IV The Clean Air Actsamendments were implemented.
