Kathryn Boober FYOS 28 September 2011 A Crude Awakening: The Oil Crash This movie primarily explains that oil is scarce, and nobody is prepared for what is going to happen when it runs out. In the beginning of the movie people begin talking about oil as this wonderful thing. Oil is used for and in everything. For example: clothes, make-up, food, food packaging, transportation, and technology are all items that use oil as their main energy source. Oil is a cheap energy source that many take for granted.
Cons on the subject include the wildlife and environment being hurt or disturbed, the oil not being ready to be used for many years and not knowing the exact amount of oil present, and that it would be very expensive to do and the amount of oil believed to be found in ANWR is relatively small compared to the needs of America. Pro #1 A very important factor that is often overlooked regarding the drilling in ANWR is that not all of the ANWR region would be used for exploration. In fact, only 1.5 million acres of land would be
Even some states allow fracking to be exempt from state water use regulation, an agreement limiting large water withdrawals; despite the fact that each fracking well uses up to five million gallons of locally sourced water. In the article, Should Fracking Stop? The authors provided information that there are water recovery tanks. These water recovery tanks contain polluted flow-back water that gets injected to a deep storage well and eventually it is sent to a treatment plant. It’s a waste because clean water is not an abundant resource and it will eventually run out.
However, I have met many people that dislike the process very much. Below one will find the answer to what fracking is, why some people think that it is important to use fracking, and what about the process concerns so many people. Fracking is also known as hydraulic fracturing. “Hydraulic fracturing is the process of creating fissures in underground formations to allow natural gas to flow.” (Barnett Shale Energy Education Council) Fracking extracts oil and gas from layers of rock formations deep beneath the earth’s surface. Sometimes, the wells can be thousands of feet deep.
Although we may be able to sustain a planet with some kind of civilization, the earth that we knew is gone. Oil and fossil fuels are attributed to manual labor and why we are prosperous and why our economies have grown. It is also why we have global warming and acid oceans. Rising temperatures and depleting oil reserves go hand in hand. Modernity may cease with global warming as half the biggest companies are oil companies, and oil is the essence of life.
Eager to find similar deposits, investors spent billions of dollars throughout the Lone Star state in search of oil and natural gas. The cheap fuel they found helped to revolutionize American transportation and industry. Storage facilities, pipelines, and major refining units were built in the Beaumont, Port Arthur, Sabine Pass, and Orange areas around Spindletop. By 1902 there were more than 500 Texas corporations doing business in Beaumont. Many of the major oil companies were born at Spindletop or grew to major corporate size as a result of their involvement at Spindletop.
My father is an alcoholic, which is why I believe that he used violence towards my mother. I am not excusing his behavior, but I believe that if my father did not drink, things may have turned out differently for my family. As for myself, I have been deathly afraid of ever picking up a drink or drug. I believe that if I did, I would never be able to stop, and I would also fear of turning out like my father. 9.
He then goes into denial, thinking to himself, “No, I can’t be dying, not from a little street rumble, not from just getting cut. Guys get cut all the time in rumbles. I can’t be dying. No, that’s stupid. That don’t make any sense at all.” Though at this point, Andy realises his death is inevitable.
It is very much feared also. If the world did end, it would be very scary for people that may have survived. “The city was a dead place,” (Benet 411). For John, it was a place with no excitement, and nothing at all. The apocalypse is supposed to happen because of the sun burning up, so it would be very cold and lonely.
Suicide is not the answer to your problems and will only lead you to a place for eternity. She probably shouldn't have done this because her son would need her love in these hard times. But
