Warm Up (2&3 period):
Acid precipitation causes damage not only to rocks, but also to aquatic environments, forests, and can even be damaging to human health.
Write a short paragraph about what you and your community can do to try and lower carbon emissions, thus lowering acid precipitation. Give at least three specific suggestions.
