Is the amount of acid rain getting bigger because of global warming?

    Acid rain can be defined as any form of precipitation with heightened acidity. This is most often caused by the human emission of carbon, nitrogen and sulfur compounds. Currently there is no evidence to suggest that climate change itself has increased the amount of acid rain in the world, though the same activities linked to global warming (i.e. pollution) have been linked to acid rain.

    Recently, however, acid rain has been linked to the natural reduction of greenhouse gases. Several studies have shown that high rates of sulfate deposition have suppressed methane emissions from natural wetlands by nearly 40 percent. These findings support the notion that the Earth maintains microbial systems of climate regulation.
