Burning fossil fuels do not themselves release acids. paral, your sources confirm that fossil fuel emissions such as sulfur dioxide and nitrous oxide (which are not acids) FORM acids when they react with water and other substances in the atmosphere.

This is the excerpt from the source: Even though there are natural sources of acid in the atmosphere, acid rain is primarily caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrous oxide (N2 O) from electric utilities burning fossil fuels, especially coal.
Does this not mean that when fossil fuel is burned, then SO2 and N20 are released? Did we read the same source?

paral, it's basic chemistry. The emissions are NOT themselves acids: they react with other substances to form acids. The source makes it clear that, yes, there are acids in the atmosphere, but that the main source of acid rain is emissions reacting with water etc. You have to read on a little bit, where it says: "These chemicals are converted to sulfuric acid and nitric acid in the atmosphere"; and the other source says "(once in the atmosphere) they mix and react with water, oxygen, and other chemicals to form more acidic pollutants, known as acid rain." The question states that "Acid rain is the DIRECT result of ACID RELEASED by burning fossil fuels. This is simply false.
