We would like to say that you can help stop acid rain, but in all reality, acid rain will probably never be stopped.  As long as cars run on gas, cigarettes are smoked, factories are polluting, and campers light camp fires, acid rain will probably always be in existance.  Although the problem is so widespread and will probably always be around, there are very simple steps one can take to minimizing the amount of acid rain and its effects.
Here are some simple steps you can take to help the acid rain problem:
 
  1. If you a car owner, try to use your car as little as possible.  Since cars are a huge factor in creating pollution, which is the base of acid rain, the less they are used the better.  Try car pooling with a friend to your job or school.  Also, if you are looking to buy a car, try to find one that has the best gas mileage possible ( 20 MPG city and up).
  2. Send e-mails or vote for the EPA to increase their pollution control standards.  There are many activist organizations you could join to help make difference.
  3. To a select few of you, lets watch our weekend bonfires?

 

These are some of the easiest and best ways to help control acid rain.  If everyone would do these easy things, we could make for a healthier future.
