Thermal pollution is the increase or decrease in the temperature of a natural body of water caused by human actions. A common cause of thermal pollution is the use of water as a coolant by power plants and industrial producers. Increased water temperatures decrease oxygen levels, which can kill fish and alter food chain composition, reduce species biodiversity, and foster invasion by new thermophilic species.
