The line graph illustrates the number of acid rain emissions in the UK that were released from four different sources, namely Transport and communication, Electricity, Gas and Water Supply, Domestic and other industries over the course of 17 years starting in 1990.

Looking at the graph, it is immediately obvious that the quantity of acid rain emissions from all sectors experience a downward trend over the period shown, with the exception of Transport and communication that remains quite stable. Domestic sector registers the lowest figures.

In 1990, Transport and communication and Domestic stood at the same position of nearly 0.6 million tonnes. The figures underwent a slight fluctuation over the period of 17 years. In 2007, approximately 0.6 million tonnes of gases can be seen in transport and communication, while nearly 0.2 million tonnes belonged to Domestic.

Electricity, Gas and Water Supply took the lead at 3.3 million tonnes in 1990, which was about 1.2 million tonnes higher than that of Other Industries. There was a sharp reduction in the number of exhausts coming from Electricity, Gas and Water Supply to 0.5 million tonnes between 1990 and 2007. A pretty similar trend was witnessed in Other industries, which significantly fall to 1.2 million tonnes at the end of the period.
