Oil Spill In China-It Can Happen In Malaysia Too

On Friday night, July 16 2010 an oil pipeline exploded at the Xingang port in China.

More than 2000 fire fighters and 338 fire engines worked for 15 hours to stop the fire.

The explosion caused an oil spill around the Dalian port.

This oil spill is not as bad as the spill in the Gulf Of Mexico.

Oil spill can happen anywhere in the world.

So we must be careful to prevent it.

It is a disaster.

Oil spill caused serious water pollution and can pollute the lands around it.

It can kill animals such as fish, crab, clam and birds.

It can kill plants too.

Cleaning oil spill is hard and very expensive.

Below are photos of the oil spill in China from Yahoo News.

A 0.9-meter-diameter oil pipeline exploded at 6 p.m. Friday near Dalian's Xingang Harbor, triggering an adjacent smaller pipeline to explode too. The oil leak seriously polluted 11 square kilometers of sea and slightly affected 50 square kilometers also, according to local environment protection bureau. (Xinhua/Tian Jingyue) (wqq)

Is Malaysia ready for oil spill?

Pictures Of Gulf Coast Oil Spill-Are Malaysian Oil Rigs Safe?

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.
