Can I say,

(a) The rubbish pollutes some rivers and causes fish die.

(b) The rubbish pollutes some rivers and / so fish will die.

Hi Bear_bear

I would mot say "the rubbish" unless you are referring to rubbish from a very specific location, or unless you had already mentioned rubbish previously (e.g. maybe you had already mentioned rubbish that is currently found in a particular river.) This does NOT seem to be the case in your sentences since you talk very generally about "some rivers".

I would suggest these:

(a) Rubbish pollutes some rivers and causes fish to die.

(b) Rubbish is polluting some rivers, and/so many fish will probably die.
