Here is a good site to learn about Acid rain:
http://www.epa.gov/acidrain/
mostly caused by sulferic acid from emmisions

Where I live it is not as bad because most native plants
like the soil more acidic. (5.8-6) where alkaline is (7)plus on the PH scale
but if acidity is too low then it is detrimental for various reasons.
one is it locks up nutrients that would otherwise be available for plants, and also is a reason for fish decline in lakes.

The coral reefs are damaged from acid precipitation because they thrive on alkaline base.http://www.oceansalive.org/explore ... entID=4709

NEVER MIND Marathon is not effected by acid rain b/c limestone, which is a base, in the ground neutralizes the acid to make it neutral
