Does anybody here remember acid rain?
- sung to the tune of “Vera” by Pink Floyd
I recall that back when I was a junior high or high school student in the 80s, the phrase “acid rain” was everywhere. It was huge. It was going to wipe us all out. It was going to eat the skin right off of our bones and turn our planet into an giant, uninhabitable tomb. Or something like that.
I haven’t heard much about it in recent years. Was the hype misguided? Have other ecological threats such as global warming (I’m still not sure which camp to believe on this one), killer bees (no wait, that scare goes back even further), white supremacy (sorry again…that was an ethnological disaster) and pole shift (for the tin-foil-hatters) take over as more important?
What ever happened to acid rain?
