2/(half-page) Read through the information posted and discuss its relevance to the Gulf oil spill. What have we learned from the Valdez spill that can be used to lessen the long-term impact of the Gulf spill? Basically reply to this.
The effects of the Valdez oil spill are still seen today in the environment and the community in Alaska. After more than 20 years, populations of animals have yet to recover and many can no longer live in the area. Local fisherman and other animals relied on the fish in these waters, but many of the fish are gone because they simply can’t survive there. Because of the spill, there are now new protocols that have developed in hopes of helping the environment. Spill response teams have been developed to limit the effects of oil if another spill occurs and congress has passed the “Oil Pollution Act,” which set up, “a liability fund, toughened spill disaster plans, and created a mechanism for citizen-led oversight committees to police safety claims by shippers,”(Struck). Safety protocols have been placed to prevent oil spills, but it still doesn’t take away from the pain people in the city of Valdez have had to go through. Many members in the community miss the, “animal noises, bird noises, marine animal noises…if you didn’t live there you wouldn’t know it was missing,”(Gray) Because of the cleanup, many people have had to deal with the attention of outsiders from the news and other media sources invading their homes and their everyday routines. The effects of the spill have caused people to be more alert and create better ways to ensure a spill this great doesn’t happen again.
