offshore drilling

BAD/Healthy oceans are critically important to marine life and to coastal

communities whose economies rely on tourism and fishing. Opening up

new offshore areas to drilling risks permanent damage to our oceans and

beaches without reducing our dependence on oil. When oil spills occur

they can bring catastrophic harm to marine life and devastating losses for

local businesses. Even routine exploration and drilling activities bring harm

to many marine species. The Administration and Congress must

work together to assess the environmental impacts of offshore drilling

before making key decisions about offshore oil and gas activities in new

areas or Alaska.

pollution

BAD/Sewage: Pollution can enter the ocean directly. Sewage or polluting substances flow through sewage, rivers, or drainages directly into the ocean. This is often how minerals and substances from mining camps find their way into the ocean. The release of other chemical nutrients into the ocean’s ecosystem leads to reductions in oxygen levels, the decay of plant life, a severe decline in the quality of the sea water itself. As a result, all levels of oceanic life, plants and animals, are highly affected.
