On the April 20, 2010 there was an explosion at the BP oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico.
The oil spilled to the ocean and caused a bad pollution.
The waves carry the oil to the beaches.
The polluted water killed the sea creatures and birds.
The birds died because when they dived into the sea to get their prey, they were soaked in the oil.
The oil soaked bird cannot fly.
This is a disaster.
There are off shore oil rigs in Malaysia too.
So we have to be careful to avoid the oil rig explosion.
Are Malaysian oil rigs safe?
We can avoid the oil rig explosion if we do not dig the oil from the sea.
