Title: Acid rain: rhetoric and reality

Twenty-one governments have now resolved to cut their nations' own emissions of sulfur dioxide by at least 30% (over 1980 levels) by 1993, and hope to persuade the main producers of sulfur oxides to join them in an international attack on the problem. This book discusses the complex political maneuvers of the countries that are major exporters and importers of acid rain and its precursors. The scientific and technological aspects of the acid ran problem and strategies for alleviating it take up two-thirds of the book.
