What happened to acid rain?
« on: 27/07/2007 16:25:51 »
I remember a few years back that acid rain was the big threat to our existence. It was the boogie man of environmentalists everywhere. So what happened to it? Has it gone away? Or has global warming usurped it as our potential nemesis?

Not raining today, but we had a bit yesterday. Still lots of floods around.

The 1st 2 pics are Oxford, the 3rd is our local sports centre in Banbury, and the last 2 are Tewkesbury.

A man & his son were electrocuted when they switched on an electric pump to clear out a flooded basement in a rugby club. Of all the stupid things to do!
