Acid rain comes from fossil fuel waste and pollution. Acid rain comes in two forms, nitric and sulfuric acid. Nitric acid is caused from gasoline, oil, and deisel fuels. It comes from really anything that's a liquid fossil fuels. The sun heats up the fuels and they become just a moisture that drifts up and gets into the moisture in the air and becomes storm clouds. They can travel fifty to three hundred miles! Sulfuric acid comes from coal. Coal gets burned at power plants and the smoke drifts to clouds. It takes a longer time than nitric acid but it travels farther, it can go five hundred to fifteen hundred miles!
Even though there are many negatives to acid rain, there are solutions. The effects of acid rain are the polltuion of of oceans, pollutes drinking water, and ruins limestone, marble, and metal. The solutions are to burn less fossil fuels, scrubbers, and use alternative energy. Scrubbers collect sulfur and if you drive hybrids you use less fuel.
