Humanity Doesn’t Do Much Good When It Comes To Caring About Our Planet (13 pics) - Picture #11

A huge oil spot has formed as a result of an explosion of an oil platform in 2010.

Every year, more than 12 million tons of oil get dumped into the world’s oceans. It happens due to the leakage of oil from damaged wells and tankers. About 25% of seawater is covered with a layer of oil varying in thickness. In 2010, an explosion of The Deepwater Horizon oil platform resulted in the leakage of 1000 tons of oil into the ocean. The British Petroleum company has spent billions of dollars to eliminate the substance but despite all efforts, they could only remove 75% of the combustible substance.
