  • Acid Rain
    • Increases PH of soil
      • Kills trees
    • Kills aquatic life
    • Caused by
      • Car engines release nitrogen oxides
        • Acidic gases are released into the atmosphere
          • Acidic gases dissolve in moisture in the air
            • Clouds cool and release acid rain
              • Falls onto land, runs into streams and rivers
      • Living plants and animals release nitrogen oxides
