     Oil drillings are happening quite often but the public isn't that educated on it. All we care about is the oil being extracted from the ground. Many fatal mistakes can be made while drilling. Although, we as citizens never get a real, deep look at the process and we never know the effects as all our greedy eyes are looking for, is oil.

"Once released by the fracture of the core, the natural gas traveled up the Deepwater rig’s riser to the platform, where it ignited, killing 11 workers and injuring 17. The rig capsized and sank on the morning of April 22, rupturing the riser, through which drilling mud had been injected in order to counteract the upward pressure of oil and natural gas. Without any opposing force, oil began to discharge into the gulf. The volume of oil escaping the damaged well—originally estimated by BP to be about 1,000 barrels per day—was thought by U.S. government officials to have peaked at more than 60,000 barrels per day." 

     In order to stop these from happening, we can switch to Solar Power and stand up against oil drillings. China has already switched to Solar Power to reduce the usage of fossil fuels and we should do the same. We can save many people, many landforms, and many marine organisms. Eleven workers were killed in the Deep Water Horizon Oil spill with seventeen injured and 8000+ marine life organisms affected. In the documentary "Before the Flood", Leonardo DiCaprio travels to many different places to see what changes they are making. Let's make a change before our world is ruined. Let's make that change right now.
