That is true. It has moved to the back burner of issues.

 

I wonder what the latest information is on that? I'm sure someone is working on it.

 

I do know there has been some significant regulation to curb acid rain. Quite a few coal sources are no longer being minded because of their sulfur content (including some Illinois coal). Scrubbers and other technology have made inroads as well.

 

I don't think thought, that there were many places being poisoned altogether. The buffering capacity of most watersheds is pretty strong. It's the rare lake in the US that was experiencing actual problems. Limestone buildings sure were taking a hit.
