1. A Brief Description of Oil
These items relate to Oil
Fuel is a substance that is created from Oil. A fuel is created when the Oil is pumped out of the Earth and is shipped to an Oil Refinery in a oil tanker. Then the Oil is converted into fuel. It can also be converted into different things such as: Gasoline, Ethane, diesel fuel, etc.
Plastic is a material that has a little oil in it along with other synthetic materials, also non-synthetic organic materials that are moldable. Plastic is made up of many different chemicals but it is a mostly natural object.
The pigments of colour can be very easily be suspended in Oil. Which makes it easier to paint mediums for the artwork. Oil Paint was first made in 650 AD
3. The process of harvesting/using/extracting the resource
There are many ways to harvest oil. One way of harvesting oil is harvesting it from Oil sands. They have oil sands dug up and then they take the oil and suck out all the oil from the oil sands. That is one way harvesting oil from something.
We usually oil when we convert it into sources we can use. Example: Oil can be changed into petroleum which we can use to make a vehicle operate. At a gas pump the petroleum is inserted into the gas tank and then the vehicle uses the petroleum energy to work.
We extract oil by drilling a hole in the surface of the earth. Then you have to insert a pipe in the hole that you drilled. Then the pipe that you inserted in the hole will extract all the oil and it will be stored after that
4. impacts that harvesting/using/extracting this resource has on people and the environment
Before ________________________________After Rip the Land for Oil
This can cause animal and plant species previously inhabiting this area to be endangered and changes the green space into wastelands.
Car's Create Pollution
What can be done to reduce the severity of the negative 'impacts' given that the 'impacts' of harvesting/using/extracting are negative.
