In the past week we were discussing the effects of human error on the environment. Back in 2o1o, there was a huge oil spill that caused a lot of problems. The main thing that was affected were the marine life. It was a national disaster that caused big problems for both BP and for the United States. That brings us to 2016. There was another spill in the gulf. It was a damaged pipeline at a Royal Dutch Shell production field. It was located off the coast of Louisiana and is estimated that 90,000 gallons of oil. That makes me wonder when is enough enough? After the news of this recent spill, the Obama Administration decided that there will not be any pipelines in the Atlantic Ocean. They create a list of possible places where new oil and or gas leasing is possible for companies, they decided to keep the Gulf on the list for now. I believe they need to make that change immediately. The day that the Shell leak was discovered, a protest over new Gulf oil and gas leases was held at a U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management in New Orleans. People have been worried ever since the first disaster. The coastal communities across the gulf witnessed the devastating gamble on their years harvest, All ruined by fossil fuels off shore. They had a first hand experience of the extreme dangers. Personally as a kid in Ohio, when i first heard of the spill i was shocked. Then I was images of the animals effected. I saw ducks and otters turned black from oil on the news, along with sharks and whales whom were overturned, belly up. In other words they were dead. The need for humans to drive is causing more and more problems for the natural world. Personally, i hope we can quickly find an alternative resource to oil so we can cut back on a lot of the worlds current problems.
