Abstract

The purpose of this presentation is to communicate content of the reports given by credible institution on the degradation and exploitation of finite natural resources by corporate institutions, for short term financial gain, and how it will effect the future planetary environment. Methods used in obtaining this research range from point source observation directly from oil spills in the Gulf or pipe leaks in the Mid-West, to analytical and numerical data quantifications gathered over a period of two decades. This presentation encompasses a wide scope of information concerning the way we disseminate and education to the populous on oil companies pollution as well as the inherent dangers connected with this volatile form of energy acquisition. Results show that finite natural resource such as fossil fuels have severely impact the troposphere and hydrosphere of our ecological planetary environment. Continuation of the method of energy consumption will lead to degradation of wetlands, waterways, and agricultural hearths. Recommendations suggested by my presentation push towards more sustainable form of energy production that will persevere and protect our planet for the succession of our species.
