Disaster At Sea

2009 bp Oil Spill Clean Up

SHOULD WE BE WORRIED OR NOT?

YES! We should be worried. This is a home to lots of animals from pelicans to seagulls to fish and lots of others. A another reason is, imagine you were a entrepreneur, would you want your beach flooded with crewed oil? It would lead to less business. Another reason why you should be worried is... even after the pipe broke oil kept pumping and kept flooding the ocean.

HOW WE APPROACHED THE PROBLEM

First, we thought that it would be best to find that the total area of the oil that has spilled. When we were adding up the total area to lay out the pumps to suck up the oil we thought it would be best to lay them as close to shore as possible so that an oil that had already got past would not harm the animals such as crabs, star fish, and lots others.

THE TOTAL AREA

After adding up all the area we found an answer of 379 ¼ Miles2

QUESTIONS

I think that our area that we covered well doing this project because we got really close to the edge so even the smallest bit of oil did not get by.
