Have you ever wondered what oil spills are? Which are killing a whole lot of animals in water!?! Well, that is oil spills. Oil spills go in water which a lot of animals live in the water. For example: fish, birds, sea turtles, and a lot of mammals! Shouldn’t we stop oil spills? Yes we should! Just think of it, our world can be so much better! Don’t you think!?!
OK let's start!
I will show you things that are very pain full, sad! Very sad! Because of our world! I Cant believe it! let's look Around To see more information, about oil spills!
WHAT ARE OIL SPILLS?:
Oil spills are, oil released into the environment, specially in the bodies of water. an oil spill is also, oil like gas oil, that kills a lot of animals in water and even if it is out of the water, it still will kill the animals, no matter what! so we should stop using oil spills so much! Also it is, a liquid that is spilled into the water, like i said it kills a lot of animals!
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING!
WHY OIL SPILLS ARE CAUSED
In my words, oil spills are caused by, when people go with boats around the ocean to deliver oil, or to use for the boat, and it might leak and they don't know that it leaked because it goes in the water! But then, you just don't know how many animals you can kill in water from some oil! Also oil spills are caused because people who don't really care about animals in the water some times don't watch out for what they do and say that it was "by accident" so they don't care! But that messes up our EARTH! Most people go by boat so oil might leak if the boat isn't really good. At least use a boat without oil,gas... because then you are not blamed! These examples that i gave you, we should never do!!
HOW DO OIL SPILLS HAPPEN
people making mistakes or being careless.
equipment breaking down. (Boats...)
natural disasters such as hurricanes.
People putting a lot of gas in oceans/waters because they do not care
putting it on there
garbage which gets
on other things
HOW WE CAN STOP OIL SPILLS
For my opinion, I know that we can stop using so much Oil. But, not food oil. I mean gas oil, boat oil, because LOOK what it causes! People just forget about it and they do it anyways! JUST FOR MONEY! Like would they rather kill animals! Because that it was I see! we can stop oil spills by making good strong boats that don't use, or a tiny bit of gas, oil and not so many animals will die! I already see that our community, others can do this together!
HOW DOES IT EFFECT US/ANIMALS…
Oil spills Effect us/humans because, the oil goes in into the water that people and animals swim in, and then we get it on us because we swam in it! maybe without us knowing! it also Effects us because it it not good for our self's, and not even for animals! No matter where the oil spill is, it will still Effect something in the water!
Oil spills also effect us by, giving us what is inside of the oil and putting it in our body! it is very bad for your body, and it is a worse chance of dying by getting oil on you then getting bleach!
WHERE OIL COMES FROM
Oil comes from, deep in the ground, where it collects inside of the rocks of the earth itself. How does this oil get into the rocks? Well, when the rocks were forming, it gets/got it's energy from the sun. Also , oil comes from the trucks, factories, gas station, boats that crash or leak... and the sad thing is that it can come from more places!

How do people clean up the oil?
booms, which are floating barriers to oil (for example, a big boom may be placed around a tanker that is leaking oil, to collect the oil).
skimmers, which are boats that skim (scoop) spilled oil from the water surface.
sorbets, which are big sponges used to absorb oil.
chemical dispersant, which breaks down the oil into its chemical constituents.
washing oil off beaches with either high or low pressure hoses.
vacuum trucks, which can vacuum spilled oil off of beaches or the water surface.
shovels and road equipment, which are sometimes used to pick up oil or move oiled beach sand and gravel down to where it can be cleaned.

WHY WE NEED OIL
We use oil for many things! For example:
- cooking in homes
- for people to use
- to make things
- for machines
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE RUN OUT OF OIL?
In my way of saying this is, that when our community run's out of oil we will be in trouble! But i am kinda happy because, then maybe our community can relise how much oil went in the water and every where! this might be dangerous but it helps out our oceans, lakes, ponds!
WILL WE RUN OUT OF OIL?
In these days, people say that we will not run out of oil because we have enought! But not really! Our oil has run out because we have used it to much, that we need more! It is hard to believe, but it is the truth! Our community lost a whole lot of oil, just by using boats, cars, trucks... it kept leaking, or something broke down! It is not a good thing because we need oil! But like i said, at least it can make the animals in the water heather and ways better, because we won't have so much oil in the water! Our community is trying to find a way that we can get more oil! Do you think our community will run out?
HOW OUR COMMUNITY HELPS ANIMALS NOW A DAYS!
Spills may take months or even years to clean up.
more than 200 million gallons of crude oil was pumped into the Gulf of Mexico for a total of 87 days, making it the biggest oil spill in U.S. history.
he initial oil rig explosion killed 11 people and injured 17 others.
President Obama announced that his administration would create a $20 billion spill response fund.
Responders used 5.5 million feet of boom, a barrier placed in water, to collect and absorb oil.
400 miles of Louisiana coast, approximately 125 miles have been polluted by the oil spill.
Over 8,000 animals (birds, turtles, mammals) were reported dead just 6 months after the spill, including many that were already on the endangered species list.
$40 billion in fines, cleanup costs, and settlements as a result of the oil spill in 2010, with an additional $16 billion due to the Clean Water Act.
Over 30,000 people responded to the spill in the Gulf Coast working to collect oil, clean up beaches, take care of animals and perform various other duties. As of 2012, the Gulf was still polluted with oil.
PEOPLE CAN HAVE FUN WITHOUT
BOATS WITH OIL,GAS!
PEOPLE CAN HAVE FUN WITHOUT
BOATS WITH OIL,GAS!
LETS TRY TO not make ouR EARH LIKE THIS!
There is a problem in our community! Because we are losing to much oil! In a lot of ways, that is a good thing! But in some reasons it is a bad thing because, we need oil for a lot of things! Even if it kills animals people still need it because they need transportation and without oil we can't drive. Our community needs oil, but it doesn't mean that we have to use it so much. It is very bad for the water and animals, and if they need oil then more animals are dying! If you are wondering, "if they need oil, then why don't they help the animals at the same time", well because there is too many.
it is a good question, but i don't think that they would do that.
the community helps the animals by:
- using dawn
-(raising) donate money for people who help animals
-washing the animals
- taking care of them by putting them in a safer place
