The Real Acid Rain and Snow In Asia
If you live in the West, it’s likely that you’ve never experienced the lovely acid rain or snow that can happen in Asia. In case you’re wondering, the acid rain or snow is most certainly due to pollution being so high that it has a direct effect on the local weather. When we reference “acid,” we are not discussing the science fiction version. Rain is acidic regardless, but it becomes even more acidic when pollution gets into the air and into the clouds.
Usually, when this type of rain or snow comes down, it’ll appear orange. Some of the most common places to see this type of stuff is in China and Russia (sometimes Eastern-Europe), as well as some of the surrounding countries. One such issue took place in Siberia years ago when orange snow hit the ground. When tested, Russian environmentalists found iron at four times higher than its normal rate as well as other acids and nitrates. Oleg Mitvol, Russia’s Deputy Head of their environmental watchdog, claimed it was certainly not a storm that caused this. Then claimed charges will be filed if an industry caused it.
