When Google I find this answer

Solar eclipse has nothing to do with acid rains. Scientifically, Solar eclipse and Acid rain are entirely different phenomenon, which are NOT related in ANY WAY. Solar eclipse is caused by astronomical alignment, whereas acid rain is caused by increased concentration of acidic gases (Sulphides, Nitrides etc) in the atmosphere.

During Solar eclipse, there doesn't occur any selective filtering- Moon is not translucent! Solar eclipse does have some effect on tides, and slight influence on earthquakes, due to the increased gravitational pull on earth's crust. But there exist no feasible explanation how it could increase the concentration of acidic gases in the atmosphere, which are mainly produced by industries and vehicles; thereby leading to acid rain!

So, Ignore this warning. As all such warnings, this is also a hoax.
