She’s going to talk to us about the problem of pollution.
Kathy: Ellen, why is pollution a problem?
Ellen: Well, for one thing, pollution makes us sick.
Kathy: You mean, it’s bad for our health?

For example, if we breathe polluted air, we get sick.

Kathy: What else?
Ellen: Polluted water kills animals and fish.
Kathy: That’s terrible!
Ellen: Pollution also kills plants, and plants give us clean air.

Pollution kills the plants which give us clean air.
