This chapter begins with an in-depth description of an environmental scarcity problem called acid rain, which results in serious ecological destruction and affects human health. The discussion continues with the sources and pollutants involved in acid rain and its effects in various parts of the world. The main purpose of the chapter is to address the similarities and comparisons among three specified regions, i.e., Europe, North America, and East Asia, which have been hit with acid rain problems. Various political, ecological, economic considerations, and policy measures, which have been adopted by these regions, are also described in the later parts of the chapter, which concludes by stating that the acid rain problem played an important role in international environmental cooperation.

Keywords:   acid rain, ecological destruction, Europe, North America, East Asia, policy measures
