Acid Rain is a serious environmental problem that is particularly damaging to lakes, streams and forests, and the plants, animals, insects and aquatic life-forms that live in and/or depend on these ecosystems. It has also been shown to have adverse impacts on human health as well as causing damages to buildings and various other man-made products that are exposed to its elements.
The chemical forerunners of acid rain formation result from both natural sources, such as volcanoes and decaying vegetation, and man-made sources, primarily emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) resulting from fossil fuel combustion. The largest known sources of acid deposition, however, are of the man-made type, coming from power plants and automobiles.
It is critical that acid deposition be reduced throughout the world to preserve the integrity of natural habitats, as well as to reduce damage to human health and man-made structures. It is a problem that transcends the Nation-State system, as it knows no political boundaries. When sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are released from power plants and other sources, prevailing winds blow these compounds across national borders, sometimes over hundreds of miles. It is, therefore, a global problem, requiring a global solution.
Take action as individuals
It may seem like there is not much that one individual can do to stop acid deposition. However, like many environmental problems, acid deposition is caused by the cumulative actions of millions of individual people. Therefore, each individual can also reduce their contribution to the problem and become part of the solution. Individuals can contribute directly by conserving energy, since energy production causes the largest portion of the acid deposition problem. For example, you can:
This is the Age of Information Technology: the age when people live two lives, one of which is lived in the computer. This is the age of a technology like that of Facebook, which puts everyone on the map of the world; the age of a technology like that of Twitter, which gives everyone an access to the podium of the world; and technology like that of Google, which provides individuals with an all-seeing and all-knowing window to the world. This is the Age of Information Technology- the technology that gives every individual an equal opportunity to play God.
In the 50s, Abstract Expressionism was one of the main assets of the CIA in the propaganda war of the United States against the Soviet Union. This was so, because, as an artistic movement, Abstract Expressionism was being held up as proof of the creativity, the intellectual freedom, and the cultural power of the US, against which the Russian art, strapped into the communist ideological straitjacket, could not compete. As effective as it may have been, Abstract Expressionism started giving way to the emerging Pop Art culture, which used the iconography of television, photography, comics, cinema and advertising as the main subject of the arts in order to celebrate post-war consumerism. Pop Art, in turn, while defying the psychology of Abstract Expressionism, happened to worship the same god of materialism that the sponsors of Abstract Expressionism had set up to promote.

Zoroastrianism is the world's oldest monotheistic religion. It was founded by Zoroaster in ancient Iran, approximately 3500 years ago, and served as its national religion for many centuries. In Zoroastrianism, the creator Ahura Mazda is all good, and no evil originates from him. Thus, in Zoroastrianism good and evil have distinct sources, with evil trying to destroy the creation of Mazda, and good trying to sustain it. The victory of good over evil is possible by upholding, through free will, the most basic tenets of the religion, which are Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds.
The Islamic Revolution of 1979 marked the rebirth of theocracy in opposition to the rapid military and industrial growth and modernization of the Pahlavi Era. This was not a Revolution in the classic Marxist/Leninist sense of the word, as it was not strictly an expression of class struggle, but one of a population that was enjoying a relatively good material wealth and prosperity, but which was plagued by a rising level of expectation that had been instilled by the same ambitious economic program of the Pahlavi era that had lifted people out of abject poverty in the first place. It was a revolution that undermined the ideas of Communism as it was fueled by religion, backed by the Bazaaris, promoted by the intellectuals and sponsored by the bourgeois owners of the means of production at the time. A precedent had been set.
Rumi was an evolutionary thinker in the sense that he believed that the spirit after devolution from the divine undergoes an evolutionary process by which it comes nearer and nearer to the same divine Ego, or GOD. The attainment of God is the ground and the goal of all existence. It knows no countries and no religions as Rumi explains in the following poem:
"What is to be done, O Moslems? For I do not recognize myself.
I am neither Christian, nor Jew, nor Gabr, nor Moslem.
I am not of the East, nor of the West, nor of the land, nor of the sea;
I am not of Nature's mint, nor of the circling' heaven.
I am not of earth, nor of water, nor of air, nor of fire;
I am not of the empyrean, nor of the dust, nor of existence, nor of entity.
I am not of India, nor of China, nor of Bulgaria, nor of Saqsin.
I am not of the kingdom of 'Iraqian, nor of the country of Khorasan
I am not of the this world, nor of the next, nor of Paradise, nor of Hell.
I am not of Adam, nor of Eve, nor of Eden and Rizwan.
My place is the Placeless, my trace is the Traceless;
'Tis neither body nor soul, for I belong to the soul of the Beloved.
I have put duality away, I have seen that the two worlds are one;
One I seek, One I know, One I see, One I call.
He is the first, He is the last, He is the outward, He is the inward;
I know none other except God."
