Abstract

[Acid rain emerged in the late 1970s both as a domestic issue within the United States and Canada and as a contentious problem between the two neighbors. A decade of debate over the 1980s led eventually to controls on the emissions that cause acid rain, a step that required a new federal-provincial agreement in Canada and significant amendment of the U.S. Clean Air Act, and led also to an international agreement—the bilateral Air Quality Agreement of 1991. In the decade that followed, these efforts were praised as highly successful, especially in Ottawa and Washington. While other transboundary issues have achieved more prominence in recent years, particularly ground-level ozone, acid rain remains on the bilateral agenda.]
