our planet. It makes people,
other animals and plants
sick. It's climate change.

How Acid Rain Affects
People can become seriously ill, and
can even die from the effects of acid
rain. Many can find it difficult to
breathe, especially asthma patients.
Asthma, along with dry coughs,
headaches, and throat irritations can
be caused by the sulfur dioxides and
nitrogen oxides from acid rain.
Acid rain can be absorbed by
both plants and animals (from things
they eat and/or direct contact). When
people eat these plants or
animals, the toxins inside of their
meals can affect them. Brain
damage, kidney problems, and
Alzheimer's disease has been linked
to people eating animals/plants.
The sources of air pollution:
Anthropogenic (caused by humans activity)
Mostly related to burning different kinds of fuel. They
Industrial activity in general.
Paint fumes, or other vapors.
Dust from natural sources, usually

the digestion of animals, usually
Smoke from wildfires.
A thing you don't see so easily which
comes out of factories, farms and cities is
the water pollution. This is the stuff that
get dumped into streams, into rivers, into
lakes and into seas.
