Acid Rain: Requiem or Recovery

  • 1982 ----- color ----- 27 min ----- 16mm
  • (Produced by the National Film Board of Canada) North America, both Canada and America, hungry for power, has burnt coal and oil producing, besides energy, sulfur-dioxide and oxides of nitrogen at the rate of 60 million tons a year. As the particulates combine with the atmosphere acid rain occurs. Every species of plant and animal affected reacts in its own way; when the change is big enough, some die. Yet technology exists to correct this massive miscalculation. "Using the sky as a garbage dump has not worked out. Far from the stacks our waste is quietly coming home."
