Environment oil drilling bad

A 2010 explosion at an offshore oil rig released millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. This environmental disaster contaminated over 1,000 miles of coastline and caused health problems for coastal residents. Offshore drilling doesn’t always cause such catastrophic effects, but disadvantages to extracting

Spills Cause the Most Damage The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports that it responds to over one hundred chemical and oil spills every year in U.S. waters. Apart from simply stopping the drilling, there are ways to guard against some of the negative environmental impacts of offshore oil drilling: Apply a thorough environmental assessment process before beginning the oil exploration. Use alternative solutions to standard seismic surveys that are safer
