INTERMEDIATE - IG9 - MODERN TECHNOLOGY

We're going to start by looking at some conditional sentences.
Read the story below.

If pollution became worse, the sun would stop shining.
If the sun stopped shining, plants would stop growing.
If plants stopped growing, we would have no food.
If we had no food, we would die.
If we died, the pollution problem would disappear.
If the pollution problem disappeared, the sun would shine again.
If the sun shone again, we wouldn't have to worry.

Look at the strucutre of the sentences:
If + subject + simple past verb (+ comma) subject + would +present tense verb.
If plants stopped growing, we would have no food.
(The technical name for this structure is the 2nd Conditional.)
