Timer The final Jeopardy answer is: C1 final A factory uses water to cool its machines. Then it puts clean hot water into a nearby river. The temperature of the river rises. The warmer water has less oxygen than the cooler water did. Fish in the river start dying from lack of oxygen. Is the clean hot water from the factory an example of pollution? Explain why or why not?
C1 final Yes, because pollution means any change in an environment that can harm living organisms. The fish are being harmed, so even though the hot water is clean, it is polluting the river by being hot.
