A kind of man-made rain - Acid Rain

We heard and termed rains as tropical rain, summer rain, winter rain, monsoon rain, etc. These are bounty by nature for mankind when it falls at right time, right place and right quantity (which happened till the arrival of “EL NINO”). But certain activities of the human beings, unmindful of its impact on the environment, cause the rain to pollute.

The above image shown here is the giant industrial complex at Norilsk, in Russia’s remote Arctic region, is accused of being world’s largest producer of acid rain.

Please take note that, our living comforts shouldn’t make the earth as dangerous place to live with, “for the generations to com”.
