Oil well fires are oil
gushers

that have caught on
fire,

and burn
uncontrollably
.
Somewhere around 6

million barrels (950,000

m
3
) of
oil were lost each day.

Eventually, privately
contracted crews
extinguished the fires,
at a total cost of US
$1.5 billion

the fires had burned for
months, causing
widespread pollution

HOW MUCH
OIL IS
REMAINING
YOU MAY
ASK!?!?

During the 1970's, people
said oil would run out in
2000.


Now, people are saying
that oil would run out
within 30
-
50 years.

Almost
70% of all
oil comes
from the
middle
east

The US consumes about 25%
of the world's oil resources
yet they're only 300 million
out of 6 billion people

About 85% of the
world's energy
comes from fossil
fuel


Alternative fuels

Hydrogen cells

Thermal polymerization of
materials to be made into oil

bio

diesel

cold fusion

solar

energy


Wind

Hydro
-
Electric

Nuclear power

None of the previous alternative sources

of energy are no where near as effective

Or useful as fossil fuels.


CHECK IT OUT!

The technical definition of fossil fuels is "incompletely
oxidized and decayed animal and vegetable materials,
specifically coal, peat, lignite, petroleum and natural
gas".

Whenever oil is recovered
from the ocean floor,
other chemicals and toxic
substances come up too
--

things like mercury, lead
and arsenic that are often
released back into the
ocean.

1969, the blowout of an
offshore drilling platform in
Santa Barbara, CA, causing
200,000 gallons of crude oil to
spread over 800 square miles
of ocean and shore.

Pollution from oil drilling has been
shown to cause life
-
threatening
diseases such as cancer and it can
also destroy the traditional
homelands of indigenous societies

Roads, airports, housing
complexes, pipelines, mines and
other structures must be built
when drilling for oil. These
structures can disturb animal
habitats and migration routes.

OMG
!!!

OMG!!!

WOOOWWWWWW!!!!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN


WHEN THE EARTH RUNS DRY?!

I DON’T KNOW!?

Green house gasses will lower.


Economic depression.


If there is oil found, prices will sky rocket.


Transportation departments will be desperate


for new sources of energy


Other sources will be generated for energy to heat

And accommodate other needs.

WE GOTTA FIND ANOTHER WAY TO POWER OUR TRACTORS


The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency says there
are about 70 per
day.


Typically, these are small
and do no serious harm. But
big spills do occur sometimes,
and the damage to
ecosystems can be very great

Did you Know?

Newer drilling and oil handling
technologies reduce chances of oil
spills

Oil spills can be cleaned up

Sunlight and bacteria degrade oil
into less
-
harmful compounds

Fumes are irritating to eyes, nose,
mouth and lungs

If burned, contributes CO
2

to global
warming and to
sulphur
-

and
nitrogen
-
based gases that cause
acid rain

Mechanical effects

clumps settle out on ocean
flood, covering up habitat

collapses air space in fur and
feathers

Effects of oil pollution exposure.
