Forest destruction by acid rain. View of woodland devastated by the effects of acid-polluted rain. These trees are in the Czech Republic, near the border with Germany, in one of the most polluted parts of central Europe. Emissions of sulphur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen from industry in the former East Germany and Czechoslovakia have caused this widespread death of trees. Photographed in the Krusne Hory mountains.
