Land drilling can. Ocean drilling

Land and ocean drilling are the same when it comes to drilling for the same resources such as oil rocks and minerals.

However More money has went to land drilling in the past because it was more efficient and bring in a good amount of oil. But now that there are more land drilling mines it has expanded ocean drilling.

Effects on Environment: The environment is affected because not only are we destroying land above the sea and below it, but we are drilling up almost all of the oil and we are about to run out.
