Effective Ways To Reduce The Threat Of Acid Rain

The number of possible solutions that are available to us are aplenty. What matters more is to consciously enforce these solutions to stop this rain and to do so on a wide scale. People all over the world must be made aware of the causes and effects of this rain, and they should be thoroughly educated about it. Solutions to can only be successful through cooperation. Given below are a few solutions, which can greatly reduce the threat of acid rain, if strictly followed by a large number of people.

One of the most fundamental solutions is to utilize fuels that burn more cleanly, or to burn coal more efficiently. This will greatly reduce the possibilities of this rain developing in the atmosphere.As fas as industrial power plants are concerned, the best solution is to attach devices known as 'scrubbers' in the chimneys of these plants. These scrubbers reduce the amount of sulfur produced in the smoke by 90 - 95%vehicles and cars must be mandatory required to comply with very tight and efficient emission standards. Fitting catalytic converters into the exhaust pipes of vehicles, also reduces the amount of sulphur dioxide produced by the vehicles.

We can make a lot of changes on a personal level as well, in order to combat acid rain. We should restrict the use of our cars and vehicles and utilize other modes of transportation on a more frequent basis. We should also remember to turn off all our lights and electrical devices in case we are not using them.For industrial power plants, there are many more solutions that must be enforced, as they are clearly the biggest contributors to the formation of acidified water droplets in the atmosphere. Industries must regularly inspect and clean all their emission equipment and chimneys and pipes.

All these solutions will be pointless unless people are informed and educated about the ill-effects and harms of this rain. A widespread and nationwide effort must be made to make people aware. Only after that is done, will all the solutions actually make a difference.
