Transcript of Religion: Acid Rain

Our Environmental Issue is Acid Rain, We hope you enjoy our Prezi :D Religion: Acid Rain WHAT IS ACID RAIN HOW IS IT CAUSED WHAT AFFECT DOES IT HAVE ON OUR ENVIRONMENT Of course its in the name that acid RAIN comes down by rain but it can also come down in a similar method, stuff that falls from the sky, really the only other method her is snow but the reall acid rain comes from the clouds so it is also able to come down from fog. So the main three ways of acid rain occuring is Rain, Snow and fog. HOW DOES ACID RAIN TRAVEL DOWN TO OUR WORLD Prevention of Acid rain is very important for the future of our environment. Since acid rain is caused mainly by sulphur dioxide from coal-fired power plants. There are a number of preventions, including: switching fuel sources to natural gas, oil, or renewable energy sources; switching to low-sulphur coal; removing the sulphur from the coal before burning; Other prevention methods are catalytic converters, road traffic restrictions, and equalising acidity in water systems by using powdered limestone and reduction in the sulphur content of fuels. Things you could do in the community to prevent are protest against the use of coal fire in industry, walking more and driving less, buy fuel efficient cars or alternative fuel powered vehicles and head community campaigns promoting awareness of the issue. SUPER SUMMARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WORKSHEET ANSWERS!!!!!!!! ACID RAIN IS RAIN THAT HAS BEEN MADE ACIDIC BY POLLUTION IN THE AIR AND CAUSES DAMAGE TO THINGS IN OUR ENVIRONMENT, ACID RAIN CAN APPEAR IN MANY DIFFERENT FORMS WHICH YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT LATER ON IN THIS PREZI BUT OVERALL ANYWAY ACID COMES INTO OUR EARTH VIA POLLUTION IS CALLED ACID DESPOSITION THAT CAN HAPPEN IN DRY OR WET FORMS.

Tiarnán Daykin HOW CAN WE AS STEWARDS OF OUR WORLD PREVENT ACID RAIN Acid Rain is caused by a chemical reaction that begins when different compounds like sulfur dioxide ect. are released into the air. These substances rise very high into the atmosphere where they mix and react with water, oxygen, and other different chemicals. These gases are released into the air by burning fossil fuels and this is done by different methods of transport when fuels, gases and petrols are used. Water: Acidic water affects the growth and health of fish and other creatures that livein he water, by reducing the pH of the water and impacting the health and breeding of the underwater creatures

Land: Acid rain impacts crops and soil. It can affect the growth of plants as many plants have a specific soil pH for growth.

Manfrastructure: Acid rain can corrode (be corrisove) to metal structures and, limestone and marble buildings.

Forest Ecology: Acid rain damages trees at big hights. An acid rain damaged forest would also make it a damaged and targeted forest or cut down.

Public Health: The pollutants that cause acid rain sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are inhaled and cause an increase in heart and lung conditions (and premature death). OF SUMMARY So what have we learnt? Well we have learn't that acid rain is acid coming down onto our earth via different mthods of acid despotition which can happen through rain, snow and fog. It is caused when we burn fuels and the gases enter the atmosphere then become acid rain. We also know what damage acid rain can cause to our earth, it can kill underwater creatures, damage our local buildings, it can also damage wildlife and plants and stop the growth of plants and crops, and also kill. We as stewards of the world can stop acid rain by switching fuel sources to natural gas, oil, or renewable energy sources; switching to low-sulphur coal; removing the sulphur from the coal before burning ect. RAIN Learning Intention 1. TO LEARN WHAT ACID RAIN IS
2. TO LEARN ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF ACID RAIN AND WHAT CAUSES IT
3. TO LEARN HOW WE CAN PREVENT ACID RAIN
4. EVALUATE WHAT WE HAVE LEARNT ON OUR WORK SHEET SUCCESS CRITERIA WE HAVE LEARNT WHAT ACID RAIN IS
WE HAVE LEARNT WHAT EFFECT IT HAS ON OUR ENVIRONMENT
WE HAVE LEARNT HOW IT IS CAUSED
WE HAVE LEARNT HOW ACID RAIN TRAVELS DOWN TO OUR WORLD
WE HAVE SUMMARIZED ALL WE HAVE LEARNT INTO OUR SUPER SUMMARY,
WE HAVE COMPLETED AND CORRECTED OUR WORKSHEET ON ACID RAIN.
