Dear U.A.E. Ministry of Environment, Acid rain is affecting many things in our world. Architecture, animals, the ecosystem and even us as humans. Acid rain is one of the many things in this world that is caused by a chemical reaction. Acid rain begins when both sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides (which are both compounds) are released into the air. They can reach up to the atmosphere. There they mix and react with oxygen,water and other chemicals to form acidic pollutants, which is also known as acid rain. These two compounds can travel very far where they become part of the rain, sleet, snow, or fog. This is because sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides dissolve easily in water and can be carried by the wind. Acid rain has a big impact on architecture which is key in The U.A.E. Both acid rain and the dry deposition of acidic particles contribute to the deterioration of paint and stone and…show more content…
Some positive implications of solar energy is that solar energy does not cause pollution and there is no burnt fossil fuels involved. It is estimated that our oil reserves will last for 30 to 40 years only. However, solar energy is infinite. Solar energy does not harm the environment in any way and is a cheaper investment. Though the solar panels themselves are pretty costly, it is only a matter of a few years that solar power would have been a better investment then using electricity run by fossil fuels. Though solar energy is a great alternative there are some negative implications that come with it. For example solar energy can only be harnessed when it is daytime and sunny. Another problem is that large areas of land are needed to capture the sun’s energy. This is not a concern for the U.A.E. but for countries such as the U.K. where the climate is unreliable in regards to generating solar energy. This is not a problem for the U.A.E. since everyday is a sunny day for
