Possible Plans of a Drilling Rig?
Why are we even considering this as a possibility?
Could the oil company guarantee this project to be safe and efficient?
What About The Impact On Our Environment?
Do we really want more animals to die over the consumption of oil?
With the BP oil spill there was a lot of people and companies to clean it up, since it was a high populated area; whereas with Alaska there are not a lot of people and companies around to clean it up. We'd have to fly in coast guards; the process would be much more expensive and not to mention a lot more time consuming.
Would it be dangerous? Not only to animals but the workers and the atmosphere as well.
Drilling for oil releases a large amount of pollutants and can also lead to the release of methane, nitrogen oxides and airborne particulate matter, which can cause smog and acid rain.
Transporting oil out of Alaska is very hazardous and not to mention hard. In 1989, the Exxon Valdez tanker ran off the road and ended up spilling 10.9 million gallons of oil into the coast of Alaska.
