Book Description

This book argues against the view that acid pollution is solely a West European or North American phenomenon. It describes causes and effects, political implications and controls already available, insisting that causes of acid pollution are well understood and there is no excuse for inaction. Since the first edition there have been many new scientific and political developments in the field which necessitated updating to include the 30% Club and the EEC Convention and developments in international relations, including Japan and South East Asia.
