Can acid rain kill plants?



  1. 0 Votes

    Yes.  Due to the high amounts of gaseous precursors in acid rain, the water can kill the nutrients in the soil the plants grow in. The effects are especially relevant in higher elevations.  The damage to food crops are usually limited because of the fertilizers and lime that replace the lost nutrients.

    Acid rain does not have any direct effect on humans, however long term exposure to the particulates, such as sulfur dioxide, in acid rain can lead to lung or heart problems.
