Environmental Literacy

Acid Rain

Mr. Viardo’s Grade 11 and 12 students worked in his Science class about the causes and consequences of acid rain for people and the environment. They calculated sulphuric gas emissions. They learned the process of how it combines with nitrous oxide in the atmosphere and thus it condenses with the rain clouds and falls back as acid rain. Students learned how and why constant exposure to acid rain has serious detrimental effects on our health and our ecosystems.
