The flavor of rubber/plastic tinged water on a hot summer day after your mom said get out of the damned house.

Acid Rain is bad. Do you remember that Diff'rent Strokes episode where Arnold and Willis' sister Kimberly used a cooper bowl to catch rain water and then used the rain water with some new shampoo. Turned her hair green because of the acid rain in the cooper bowl. I tell you, that's some bad stuff.

It bums me out that both Kimberly and Arnold are dead.

I gave up watching sitcoms in the early 70s. I think the last one I watched was Green Acres with Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor. After that the writing really went down hill.

When Lisa pulled out that plate of 'dehydrophicated chicken dinner' out of a boiling pot of water I split a gut.

Makes sense. BTW, did you know that the huge problem with Giant Salvenia in our lakes was caused by people planting it in their decorative outdoor water gardens years ago?


I did not know that

I'm old enough to remember it. They would show statues that had some black residue and the claim was our pollution would make the rain so acidic that it would make it hazardous to our existence. Obviously it was another false scare tactic like the coming ice age predicted in the 70's.

Yes I remember the killer bees as well. They were on the border all those years ago. I guess their papers were checked and they weren't allowed in?

I remeber there were several movies about the killer bees coming. Do you remember the commercials with the grandfater taking to his grandson at some point in the future and they were wearing gas masks with oxygen tanks because there were no trees to produce oxygen naturally?

I'm not questioning your knowledge on the subject, but why is it not an issue today compared to 30-40 years ago?


Because NOx and SOx emissions are way down especially upon the advent of the catalytic converter in cars.

Yeah, there was a period around there when movies came out with different animals destroying the earth. I didn't go see any of them. I was a big fan of Japanese Monster Movies from the 50s. In fact, Godzilla is on my ipod.

Guess what the emissions have done (increased or decreased).



Well what's the answer?

BTW, it's my understanding that acid rain is a localized issue and can be tracked down to a few or a single source in one area. For example an unscrubbed coal fired plant.

The biggest argument was the industrial north east. Think Pittsburgh to New York City. They said that the pollution from those cities was drifting toward South East Canadian forests. Then it would rain and the acid would destroy the Canadian trees.

Also a bunch of stuff on old statues in Wash DC being eroded from acid rain.
