Research is underway to clarify the role of acid rain in the destruction. In recognition of the potential seriousness of the acid rain problem, the President's Second Environmental Message to Congress in August of called for a minimum $10 million per year .

    Environmental mega conferences differ from small environmental and sustainability conferences in fundamental ways. Rather than focusing on specific regional problems such as acid rain or ‘sectoral’ problems such as human health or food, they try to take a synoptic overview of the relationship between human society and the natural world. [1]. The term “acid rain” is coined by Robert Angus Smith in the book “Air and Rain.” The British River Pollution Control Act makes it illegal to dump sewage into a stream. The world’s first national park, Yellowstone National Park, is established, signed into law by .

    This book argues that Europeanization and globalization have led to ever-more intensive legalization at transnational level. What accounts for compliance beyond the nation-state? The authors tackle this question by comparing compliance with regulations that have been formulated in a very similar way at different levels of g: Acid Rain. Acetonitrile, for example, is incinerated and this process generates waste that contributes to acid rain. Even using a process to neutralize the toxicity of the solvent, it negatively affects us otherwise (World Health Organization, ). Acid rain damages cars, buildings, monuments, vegetation, rivers, lakes .

This intergovernmental conference was initially proposed by Sweden to discuss existing and emerging environmental issues, including acid rain that was having significant adverse impacts on the ecosystems of the Swedish lakes and forests but which the Swedish authorities were unable to control because the atmospheric emissions originated from Germany and the United by: 2.

CHAPTER ACID RAIN Acid rain was discovered in the 19th century by Robert Angus Smith, a pharmacist from Manchester (England), who measured high levels of acidity in rain falling over industrial regions of England and contrasted them to the much lower levels he observed in less polluted areas near the coast.

ACID RAIN (10th International Conference on Acid Deposition) will be held from 19 to 23 October in Niigata, Japan.

International Agreements Because pollutants can be carried many hundreds of kilometres by winds, acid pollutants emitted in one country may be deposited as acid rain in other countries. Acid deposition has become an international problem.

A notable example occurred just prior to the release of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Summary for Policymaker’s Report. A similar “harmonized, collaborative intergovernmental approach” has been adopted in other environmental issues, such as implementing Canada’s environmental commitments under the Kyoto Protocol regarding climate change and the development of national strategies to deal with smog and acid rain.
