Some action has been taken to reduce sulphur dioxide emissions in the seven most eastern provinces that is a first step in the right direction. There are other ways to reduce the amount of sulphur dioxide getting into the atmosphere such as, sources of coal and oil naturally low in sulphur can be used. Sulphur can be removed before the fuel is burnt. Smoke can be washed with a slurry of lime. Everyone can do something to reduce pollution.
Problematic Issues Caused by Acid Rain Acid rain has been problematic to the earth’s environment for many years in North America. What is Acid Rain? What causes Acid Rain? How is Acid Rain damageable to the Earths soil? Acid Rain is rain that contains a high concentration of pollutants, chiefly sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, released into the earth’s atmosphere by the burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil.
Saving electricity is a huge help. Carpooling is also a major help to reduce emissions in the environment to reduce acid rain. Overall, acid rain is a problem and will continue to get worse if we do not immediately take steps to reduce the amount of fossil fuels we burn.

His argument is very reasoning to his defence and he eats so many reason to why the work works in its evil ways of discrimination. He wants everyone to that, it's very easy to not be very discriminated by the way you look but the way your skin color. Mr. King is very descriptive of his words and his meaning for them. He can really make the world change if everyone really did follow. King's reason for the speech is because he is trying to make a difference, he is a very good well taught speaker and he speaks with so much enthusiasm and nothing could really stop him from anything he's doing.His argument is very reasoning to his defence and he eats so many reason to why the work works in its evil ways of discrimination.
The purpose of this project are to reduce the total amount of garbage, increase in the recovery rate of MSW and reduce the total MSW disposed of in landfills. When it comes to the issue of building an incineration plant at the place we live, people retain differing views. Is incineration as the waste treatment is a blessing or a curse to our society? It is worthwhile to take a glance at the issue from diverse perspectives. Personally, I am more inclined to think that an incinerator is the best solution for Hong Kong to handle waste problem.
They were partially right. Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in England, pollution had been affecting all the trees, soil and rivers in Europe and North America. The use of fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, are largely to be blamed for almost half of the emissions of sulfur dioxide in the world. However, there is another cause. The other cause is naturally occurring sulfur dioxide.
The catalytic converter “turn the harmful chemicals in vehicle exhausts into harmless gases such as steam” (Woodford). These catalytic converters are essential to creating a less polluted atmosphere. An engine with and without a catalytic converter differs greatly and the reactions occurring are very significant in understanding the role of the converter;
Fossil fuels have contributed to many environmental concerns. One of the most hazardous concerns caused by fossil fuels is acid rain. Until taking EGEE 101, I was unaware of this concern and did not know the harmful damages that acid rain causes. Therefore, I wanted to understand more about acid rain and know exactly what it is and where it comes from. Acid rain is considered precipitation in the form of rain, snow, or fog.
Such waste can be chemically neutralised. The acidic waste are generally neutralised with slaked lime in a continuous stirred reactor. In this reactor, the rate of the slaked lime added is mostly controlled by feedback control system to maintain the pH value. Whereas, alkaline wastes are neutralised by adding sulphuric acid or hydrochloric acid. However, for some application acetic acid is more preferable compared to sulphuric acid or hydrochloric acid due to it non-toxic and biodegradable characteristics.
There is no quick remedy that will wipe out acid rain completely. (Pringle 1-2) Coal was the main fuel of many industries in the early nineteenth century. Coal contains sulfur and when burning it, it will produce sulfur dioxide. When in the atmosphere, sulfur dioxide may be converted to sulfuric acid (Pringle 8). Acid rain is dispensed across the world by air currents.
