See below:


As we know, climate change is, of course, the change in the climate of earth due to the increase in the amount of green house gases. The harmful greenhouse gases are released in the air due to the various activities done by human beings.

A greenhouse gas called sulphur dioxide is released in the atmosphere due to fossil fuel combustion at power plants and other industrial facilities, as well as fuel combustion in mobile sources such as locomotives, ships, and other equipment. And another greenhouse gas called nitrous oxide are emitted due to agriculture, fossil fuel combustion, wastewater management, and industrial processes.

Acid rain is caused when sulphur dioxide and nitrous oxide mixes in the air.
Due to the acid rain many harmful acids may be precipitated which affects the soil fertility badly and who knows, the soil will not be able to grow more crops which leads to decrease in production of food grains and crops.
