Does rain absorb carbon as its falling?



  1. 0 Votes

    Raindrops absorb carbon dioxide, which makes normal rainfall slightly acidic due to the formation of carbonic acid. Rainfall eventually makes it to the ocean, where the carbon dioxide is dissolves again into the seawater. Sulfur dioxides and nitrogen oxides are the compounds that cause significant concern, however, as they make raindrops even acidic. Acid rain severely damages trees, bodies of water, and even buildings.
