Geothermal energy and acid rain

How does geothermal energy work?
What are some ways to reduce acid rain?

One of the best ways to reduce acid rain is to reduce the amount of NOx and SOx emission that are being released into the air.
Geothermal energy is energy from heat stored underground, which is brought up using a geothermal pump system. It can be used simply as thermal energy (to heat up a building in winter, for example) or to generate electricity.

What are some ways to reduce acid rain effects in soil?

Adding limestone to soil (limestone has a slightly basic pH) can offset the effects of acid rain in soil.

Thank you!
