Piette, Betsey. Workers Worlds. 27 April 2012. Web. 17 December de 2012.
Piette uses this article to convey the message that Deepwater Horizon oil spill has affected more wildlife than ever. Many fish have been caught and found with large sores, streaks and lesions. When the scientist are looking at the coral and such under water, they are finding that many of it is still covered in oil. Even large animals such as dolphins are found affected. This article proves my argument for the affects of the deep sea drilling. This article shows my point and can provide evidence to show my audience, the ...view middle of the document...
Therefore, Dragna made billions of dollars just from BP. If BP spent that much money just to one company, imagine how much money they spent in total to all companies involved in the clean up. This interview source will help me convey the message that it would be cheaper for these big oil field companies to fix these catastrophes from happening by using new technologies. Maybe bringing up the dollar signs will bring the bigger issue to the oil field companies attention and they will be interested in trying new technologies to help the wildlife.
Estabrook, Barry. “IACP Journalism Awards Finalist: What Will Fracking Do to Your Food Supply. ” Guilt Taste. 18 May 2011. Web. 4 January 3 2012.
Estabrook uses cattle farmer Ken Jaffe to tell the every day story of how “fracking” is harming and threatening the agriculture and cattle of the country. Jaffe has lots of cattle and sells his meat all across the country; especially to popular restaurants in New York City. Fortunately, Jaffe has been lucky enough to have good soil this year and his cattle have done well. He explains to Estabrook exactly what “fracking” is and how dangerous it could possibly be to his cattle and his way of living. Some of Jaffe’s friends in Pennsylvania have already experiences the effects of fracking. In Pennsylvania, many cattle were quarantined due to the effects of fracking. This source gives many more examples that I will not go quite into detail with until the research paper.
This source will help me tremendously when providing an argument against the energy source companies as well as the oil field companies. I will have solid evidence and proof of how horrible fracking really is and the true effects it is having on cattle and agriculture around the country. Not only is it harming the agriculture, but also the water supply that the cattle must drink, that must water the crops, and that the farmers may also consume.
