Our guest today is Ellen Williams.

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?

Ellen: That’s right. Pollution causes health problems.

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

Kathy: I see. And we also get sick if we drink polluted water.

Ellen: Yes.

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.

Kathy: Plants give us clean air?

Ellen: Yes. Plants and trees produce the air that we breathe.

Pollution kills the plants which give us clean air.

Kathy: Right. I remember that from school.

Our guest is Ellen Williams. We’ll talk more after our break.
