Unit II Scholarly Activity
Sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide form an acidic compound in the atmosphere when they react with the moisture (humidity) in the air. These are transported in by the prevailing winds from coal-fired power plants in Ohio and are often rained out in the mountains of New England (e.g., New Hampshire and Vermont).The rains form runoff that travel to streams and eventually to lakes where the higher forms of life are eradicated.
Locate a case where acid rain has adversely affected a lake in either Vermont or New Hampshire.
Prepare the text of an e-mail that you would write to the EPA describing the damage, the cause, the fix, and the response, along with your recommendation describing how they should regulate coal-fired power plants in Ohio.
Your response should be a minimum of 1 1/2 page in length, not including your title page and reference page. Any outside sources you choose to use should be scholarly sources. All sources used, including textbooks, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying APA citations.
