Last week, a huge scandal rocked the Tunisian and Arab scientific and educational world: a PhD student submitted a thesis declaring Earth to be flat, unmoving, young (only 13,500 years of age), and the centre of the universe. Factories and vehicles using fossil fuel are producing millions of tons of NOx and SO2, which further combine with water to make acid rain. The RAND Behavioral Finance Forum, in partnership with The Pew Charitable Trusts, will be holding its annual conference this year on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at The Pew Charitable Trusts’ conference center at 901 E Street, NW in Washington, D.C.
Or tag wild monkeys with dosimeters to see how much and how dangerous the radiation is. Never mind the radioactive groundwater contamination which keeps on spreading and is impossible to stop. In Japan the nuclear disaster and menace to the future didn’t need a voice of thunder.
However though, not only the transportation nowadays is responsible for acid rains, but industrial combustion as well. I also liked that you gave definitions for both rain and acid rain in the beginning of your blog post. It is so acidic that it certainly allows itself to harm our environment in various ways.
Acidic rain also causes aluminum to be released into the soil, which can prevent the trees to soak up water. It has a really widespread number of effects on the whole food web or ecosystem,” says Rick Relyea , a professor of biological sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
A few talking heads on TV. Here is an industry that thinks nothing of spending $5 to $10 Billion on one new nuclear plant, that has a thousand more reactors deployed throughout the world, but won’t spend a dollar on an Emergency Strike Force. Relyea has studied how road salt runoff impacts lakes as part of the Jefferson Project at Lake George in New York state.
