Acid Rain and its Harmful effects

let the rain hide your pain
let it replenish your brain

Do you remember any poem on Rain?
or Does any poem comes to your mind when the see its raining?

When we were kids, rainy sessions were so much fun, getting drained in water, playing football in the rain, rafting paper boats, splashing water, and all.

If you too have memories of your childhood then please share your memories of the rainy session with us in a comment section below.

but as we grew old, we learned that the rain not only brings water down but also a lot of acid along with the water droplets, which is called Acid Rain.


Rain symbolizes happiness which brings new life after every scorching summer when all the animals and plants almost started to die.

but the rain has the power to bring life back, The happiness of seeing rain coming can be easily witnessed on the faces of farmers which brings new hope.

but humans distorted this beauty of nature too and mixed chemicals e.g high content of aerosols in the atmosphere by long big chimneys emitting and realizing harmful gases in the air.  The Aerosols such as sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide react with water molecules in the clouds and become sulfuric acid and nitric acid.

which precipitates over the region where the cloud is. These aerosols are emitted into the atmosphere both by man-made processes like industries and natural processes like a volcano.

How Acid Rain is damaging and dangerous

Pock Marks
Acid rain causes pockmarks in various marble structures, thereby marring their appearance.

Disintegration of Parts
As a result of exposure to acid rain, parts of several monuments are falling off. Some of the pieces of the Acropolis of Athens, Greece have begun falling off and total structural collapse is possible in the future.

Total Disappearance
Sometimes the damage of acid rain on monuments is irreversible. Acid rain is erasing most of the art in the Dampier rock art complex in Australia, and it is estimated that by the middle of the 21st century, most of this art will disappear completely.

When monuments are considered they are either stone or steel structures. Acid rain corrodes steel structures (Eiffel Tower) and weathers stone structures like any temples of South Asia, statues, age-old churches in Europe, and pyramids of Egypt.

But the extent of the effects of acid rain depends on the acidity and the duration of exposure to such rains. Higher the acidity and longer the duration the effect would be severe. As large amounts of these chemicals are released into the atmosphere through such processes as the burning of coal, they become bonded with water vapor held in clouds and are subsequently released to the Earth in the form of highly acidic rainfalls.

While acid rain only causes indirect damage to live human beings, primarily through its reactions with Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) to form ground-level ozone (smog),

it causes tremendous damage to soil fertility, aquatic life, and durable inorganic materials such as stone and metals. Some of the greatest measurable effects of acid rain can be observed on human constructions, particularly old buildings with facades built of corrosion-prone metals such as copper and porous stone such as limestone.

Many of these great sites are located in or near burgeoning industrial cities, they have sustained considerable damage. In our modern global economy, as developing countries such as China and India become increasingly industrialized without implementing the stringent pollution controls mostly adopted decades ago by older industrialized nations, many of their greatest cultural treasures are at risk from their own runaway national economic success.

These hazards are not, however, limited in any sense to the rapidly-industrializing world; countries such as Australia have also experienced terrible conflicts between cultural preservation and industrial concerns, while the chemical-laden clouds themselves know no borders and have the potential to float over a large area.

How Indycult is fighting with Acid Rain. The Art studio is working towards this social initiative of reducing pollutions from around us by reducing the carbon footprints by recycling waste paper and other materials.

because in manufacturing a new product will emit waste in our society but the same product we have made handcrafted by reusing the waste with 0% waste emission in production and 100% eco-friendly art pieces and also will plant a tree on your name too which will cure and reduce more and more harmful gases from our atmosphere.

Buy any of the art pieces from indycult and get a chance to help and support mother earth to be a Clean and Green environment to be tomorrow ready.
