This book highlights many of the important ecological findings amassed during the long-term research conducted there, and considers their regional, national, and global implications. A great way to reduce acid rain is to produce energy without using fossil fuels.

Instead, people can use renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind power. Renewable energy sources help reduce acid rain because they produce much less pollution.

These energy sources can be used to power machinery and produce electricity. COST OF ACID RAIN Interactions of pollutants can cause problems.

In addition to contributing to acid rain, nitrogen oxides can react with hydrocarbons to produce ozone, a major air pollutant responsible in the United States for annual losses of $2 billion to billion worth of.

Until acid rain is controlled or a universal protective technology is developed, the best protection for a vehicle is to keep it covered during precipitation events and wash it frequently, followed by hand drying.
