Just stop oil – people we are better than this
Do We Need To Change
Human evolution shows us everything in life can change dependant upon the conditions we live among and the things we depend upon as a society.
As a species we live and die dependant upon our own abilities to see our mistakes and invest in change, our civilizations have grown and changed from one technical trend to the next as we learn things from each progression.
Our latest developments offer new cleaner renewable forms of generation of electric to power more sustainable ways of living for industrial and commercial activities.
We should not fear changing away from old paths that envolve fossil fuels – which is itself vastly out of date.. oil, gas and coal is an old out of date form of power that is now hundreds of years old.
When humans finally break away from the power monopolies of the old oil industry we will stand a much greater chance of longterm survival and even short term health and quaility of living.
About the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill, also called Gulf of Mexico oil spill, was the largest marine oil spill in history, caused by an April 20, 2010, explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig—located in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 41 miles (66 km) off the coast of Louisiana—and its subsequent sinking on April 22.
60 Minuites Australia Covers Lasting Effects Of The Cleanup Process 3 Years After The Spill
When petroleum giant BP spilled millions of litres of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico 3 years ago, it was the worst ever offshore oil disaster.
To try and break up that massive slick, vast quantities of chemical dispersant was sprayed on the spill. It seemed to work: the oil disappeared.
But people started getting sick and then people started dying. Now, this environmental disaster has become a health catastrophe.
The dispersant, when mixed with the oil, increases in toxicity by 52 times. This sickly, invisible toxin, still lurks in the water and absorbs straight into peoples’ skin.
In this special 60 Minutes investigation, we reveal the same chemical dispersants have been sprayed on the Great Barrier Reef and off the north west coast of Australia.
They’re still approved for use and our authorities are clueless as to how deadly they are.
