Deep sea oil drilling creates forms of pollution, which have an impact on the marine life and other wild life. Pipeline leaks, catastrophic spills and blowouts are also a large threat to the operation of deep sea oil drilling. The operation is also a threat to human health, especially the platform workers themselves, as if there was an explosion they all would be obliterated in its wake.
Major oil spills are a possibility, and have happened before. Whether it be from vessels or oil rigs, the results always prove to be disastrous for the environment, and cause damage that can not be undone. In most offshore oil spills, the disaster strikes when the oil is being shipped from one place to another, but damage to a pipeline can cause massive environmental consequences. Also the amount of carbon emission which results in making the global warming situation worse. If there were to be an oil spill in our country, our tourism rate, (which plays a huge part in our economy) would drop dramatically, as no one would want to come and visit our country anymore.
Sign my petition now, and stop deep sea oil drilling! Lets keep New Zealand the clean, beautiful place it is today.
