Abstract

The harmful effect of acid rain is considered as one of the most serious environmental problems in the modern globalized world. The effects of acid rain have reached dramatically mainly in the industrialized countries which fall on global ecology. It becomes a major local ecological problem in most of the countries of the world. International concern about acid rain has increased recently because of global ecological pollutions, such as fish kills, dying forests, dead of lakes and other marshes, and damage to monuments and other historic artifacts. Acid rain also creates various health problems of the human body like eye, nose, and throat irritations, and lung disorders, such as dry coughs, asthma, headaches, and bronchitis. The excess presence of sulfur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen in rainwater is the main cause of acid rain. Emissions of these gases have increased in the atmosphere due to human activities, such as combustion of fossil fuels in thermal power plants, burnable wastes, automobiles, and airplanes. Some developed countries have taken steps to reduce the emission of the gases that cause acid rain. To reduce and protect global acid rain it is necessary to identify the causes and control strategies of it. An attempt has been taken here to reduce the acid rain for the welfare of the global ecology.
