A Mouthful of Pollution
2017, High School, Art
When people are about to drown, they usually scream and thrash with all their might to attract attention and stay afloat. But imagine that scenario, only with that person drowning in oil. As the black substance fills their lungs and slows their movement, screaming and flailing are no longer options. While they slowly sink beneath the gunk, their only hope is that somebody will come and rescue them. And that’s absolutely terrifying. It’s quite obvious that oil spills are nothing but bad for the environment, but I suppose that we all have to be reminded once more. Many residents of the ocean – and humans too - are suffering from these disastrous oil spills that cause severe water pollution. The mini scenario described above is a common happening to all aquatic animals around, and we must take responsibility for the cleanliness of our oceans. We too, depend on water, and it would be a slap in the face to Mother Nature to dirty what she has graciously provided us.
