Acid rain will go into are rivers, reservoirs and oceans and cause the pH of them to increase slightly therefore affecting marine life. Killing fish also causes other animals which eat fish and use the water to be effected. This would cause an economic impact because fishermen would loose money and acid rain will cause soil to be acidic meaning crops and plants wont grow as well which would effect farmers. This would cause a social impact as acid rain erodes limestone/ certain buildings, and there to be less fish/animals for us to eat. This would cause an environmental impact as plants, marine life and animals will be killed. Overall you can clearly see that acid rain effects us greatly.
