How is global warming linked to acid rain?

    The elevated greenhouse gases in the environment, such as carbon dioxide, contribute to acid rain. They mix with the water in the clouds to form such rain.

    Additionally, changes in temperature associated with global warming lead to more forest fires, which release more gases into the atmosphere, which, again, mix with the water in the clouds to form acid rain.

    Global warming and acid rain are linked in that they have a cause in common. Acid rain is caused by gaseous pollutants released from the burning of fossil fuels becoming part of a weather pattern and being carried to the ground in raindrops. So, as global warming increases, presumably at least in part due to increased pollution, it can be expected that incidences of acid rain may increase.

    They are both caused by high fossil fuel emissions present in our atmosphere. This high carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides concentrations stop heat from radiating away from Earth, trapping it, and these molecules work their way into the clouds and affect precipitation, particularly the sulfur and nitrogen oxides. They react with the water in the atmosphere to form sulfuric and nitric acids, which travels back to earth via way of rain.

    The pollution that causes global warming is linked to acid rain. Acid rain destroys almost everything it touches. This is one opinion of acid rain; another is that acid rain limits global warming by counteracting the natural production of methane gases. The sulphur in acid rain is what restricts global warming by reducing the methane emissions from natural wetland areas. Overall, the two sources I have provided indicate differences in how acid rain is linked to global warming.
