For example, in the poem, “The Fish,” we can find some environmental pollution: “l stared and stared/and actors filled up/the little rented boat,/from the pool of bilge/where oil had spread a rainbow/around the rusted engine/to the bailer rusted orange,/the sun-cracked thwarts,/the oarlocks on their strings,/the gun Nell–until everything/was rainbow, rainbow, rainbow! /And let the fish go. (Bishop lines 65-76) We can See the Oil, the garbage killed many animals in every second. We can see the “Deep-water Horizon oil spills. ” It was happened in 2010. We create a huge disaster in the sea by a small error.People always want to protect animals when they will be endangered, or protect environment after it as been broken. Like the example of I said, after the oil spills, only the thousands death animals’ body can help us remember our error. “From that database, we know that the NNE octant of the Gulf (that area containing the Deep Horizon oil spill) contains 8332 species of plants and animals.
Including only the major tax of animals at all depths in the region of the spill, there are 1461 mollusks, 604 polyphosphates, 1503 crustaceans, 1270 fishes, 4 sea turtles, 21 8 birds and 29 marine mammal species. (Shirley) We know it is a beautiful place and many animals live at there, but let’s read what we saw after the oil pills “The latest numbers are: 6,104 dead birds, 609 dead sea turtles and 100 dead mammals, including dolphins. ” (Day) That is not all of the hurt of we created.
The oil can cut off the oxygen from the sea. It would not only kill the animal that we saw, and it would kill much plankton that we cannot see. The plankton is main food of many animals, so that more and more animals will die by hunger.There is much toxic chemical composition in the oil, and it will enter plankton’s body, after animals eat it, the animals will be toxic, too. If some land animals, including humans, eat them like toxic fish, the pollution ill enlarge to the land.
Except the hurt we need to care, we also need to spend a lot of money to curb it. “The payments far exceed the letter of U. S. Law, which caps economic liabilities in oil spills at just $75 million. BP agreed to waive that limit In a pact hammered out in a four-hour White House bargaining session, BP agreed to “set aside” $20 billion in U.S. Assets as a guarantee that it would make good on the promised $20 billion in cash by 2013. ” (Hessian).
That is not enough because the oil is hard to break up naturally. That means the residual oil can stay in the nature and keep break environment for many years. We don’t know how much damage Of the Oil created in the future. Like I just said before, the area of the oil pollution will enlarge every day.
Maybe ten years later, the aftermath will affect the entire world. Not only the catastrophe, some small things will break our environment too.The things of we usually used break our environment in every second. For example, a little cleaning agent will pollute gallons water; pesticide not only killed bugs, and it will enter to other animals’ bodies from air or water; a cigarette ends may fire thousands acres forest. A battery can pollutes one square meter farm land, and the land will never grow up anyone in thousands years. If we throw a battery into water, it can pollute thousands gallons water. It is same as a person need to drink whole the life.
A plastic bag like we using in Wall-Mart can stay in the nature for hundreds years. If any animal eat it, it will die. The car exhaust emissions pollute the air. In some researches, the car exhaust emissions of a car discharged is heavier than the car, and the number of people who killed by car exhaust emissions will be ten mimes more than the people who killed by traffic Accident. For my personal experience, I lived in a northern city in China when was a child, and it freezing cold in the winter. We fire the coal to make warm.Of course we don’t fire the coal at home. It is the companies work.
They fire coal and hot the Water, then they sends the hot Water into heaters. It looks no matter with the natural environment problem, but we should know there are millions people in the same city. We don’t know how much coal we cast in each winter. Tons of coal ash have been creating and float to everywhere. The ash may float on he sky in whole the year and going down every day. In my home, my mother has to clean the home every week.
If not, we can see much ash on the tables and floor.The government must spend millions dollar to clean the city. In some corners, we can see one or TV’0 feet height ash stack at there. We need to clean the windows and wash the cars after every rain because the rain water is so dirty. The problem obstructs our life every day after we create it. At the end, government paid almost one hundred million dollars to move the companies and buy the coal ash cleaner and give them to companies. That is ten times expensive than they saved before, but the environment is much better and ash are less.
