when everything deteriorates sizzling from the rain. Acid
rain is really rain that is polluted before it hits the
ground. The way this happens is the rain falls though air
that has high amounts of chemicals. Acid rain is a
problem here because of industry in the surrounding
areas.

related diseases in air polluted areas, which is a no-
brainer. And we wonder why there are bigger hospitals in
big cities. But really diseases are no joke; do you think

damage property, create chaos, and take lives.
