Oil is used to produce the fuel we use in our cars and trucks. When oil prices increase, the price of gasoline increases. We depend on oil from from other parts of the world. Accidents sometimes occur when oil is transported in large ocean vessels. These accidents may cause oil tanks to puncture. Some oil tanks are located deep in the ocean. A major catastrophe can occur if these tanks puncture. It is not easy to plug up oil tanks located deep in the ocean. The oil spill caused by these leaks poses a threat to ocean life. A spill is detrimental to sea creatures because they cannot clean the oil from their bodies. Fish often die from exposure to large amounts of oil. Birds may die because the oil prevents them from flying. If they cannot fly, they cannot catch their food. Some people earn their income by finshing and selling the fish that they catch. If the ocean is contaminated, the fish may not be healthy to eat. Many people like to surf or swim in the ocean. Following an oil spill, the water in the ocean may be hazardous to your health. It is important to plug up tanks that are leaking oil and to clean up following a major spill. Oil spills have caused serious problems for the environment. It can take years for the environment to recover from this type of pollution. We need to do everything that we can to prevent oil spills from occurring.
