"I'm melissa harris. Perry and this is the takeaway. Thanks for being with us. On the evening of october first an oily sheen was spotted off the coast of orange county. California wasn't until the next day that amplify energy company that operates three offshore oil platforms notified the coast guard of the oil spill. And of a rupture in an underwater pipeline off the coast of huntington beach huntington beach officials. Say that this oil spills. A potential ecological disaster marine experts. Say may be weeks even months. Before we know the full extent of the damage to the wildlife at least twenty five thousand gallons of crude oil spilled into the ocean washed onto the nearby beaches and affected fish and birds in the area and in the extremely sensitive and protected marshlands throughout the area. City officials say dead. Fish and birds are being reported. Marine experts. Say a massive oil spill like this will affect the entire food chain of the ocean and all the animals that call the marshlands home and while the school wasn't quite as large as initially feared. It has reignited debate over the safety of offshore drilling. That's in part because it wasn't the only large oil spilled this year back in august. Hurricane ida damaged homes and infrastructure from louisiana all the way to new england there was also an unprecedented number of oil spills reported across the gulf of mexico. Take a listen here to wilma soubra. Who deals with environmental human health issues on behalf of the louisiana environmental action network. How hard. I don't landfall in louisiana. And as a result we had three hundred fifty notifications of spills. How war from pipeline. Some of them more from ridge. How them why equipment malfunction and spilled oil into the environment and as a result of that we also had damage to aquatic organism. We had oil birds and we had dolphins washing on shore that had been negatively impacted so addition hurricane that was a huge issue associated with contamination from the oil and gas activity. So far. we've been talking a lot about the negative environmental effects of offshore oil and gas drilling but wilma says. There's a reason why there's so much of it. how now optional. On the gulf of mexico grilling is located van because they're huge deposits of oil and gas subsurface and various strata under the gulf of mexico. And it has provided a huge economic resource to the state of louisiana and it includes a lot of jobs by the local community members. The issue is it's very economical drilling and production activities and the golf mexico and ovarian large number of people depend directly and indirectly on those jobs. But again it is done a tremendous environmental damage to the environment to the water. Bottom antenna wetland areas the federal government leases this land too big and small oil and gas companies who build rigs to drill into the ocean floor and pump that oil and gas through pipelines up into refineries and the companies. Then send that fuel all over the. Us these rigs and pipelines are supposed to be regulated by the federal government but federal regulation and oversight is often inadequate. A report released earlier this year from the us. Government accountability office found that the federal department responsible for regulation is failing to properly monitor and inspect active pipelines. And not only that. The report also revealed that federal regulators have allowed ninety seven percent of inactive pipelines built since one thousand nine hundred sixty s to remain on the ocean floor..
