The Pipe Dreams Documentary shows the vast amount of struggle and determination it takes for farmers to win their own land back. It shares a controversial issue on the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. “It’s just like a diamond in the world, the Ogallala Aquifer isn’t just Nebraska, it isn’t just the United States, it’s a clean and big lake” states Cornelius Murphy a rancher in Stuart, Nebraska. TransCanada has been requesting the US government for the approval of a 7 billion dollar pipeline known as the Keystone XL. This pipeline would be used to ship heavy crude oil from Hardisty, Alberta to around the Gulf Coast of Mexico.
Offshore drilling: a technique to get oil from underneath the seafloor, has been one of the largest and most helpful breakthroughs in technology during the last few decades. Humans have even discovered many new methods that have been developed to financially help our economy from the abundance of oil underneath the ocean floor. The search for oil is vital for the economic future of many nations. However, risks and consequences often faced in coastal ecosystems and on the mainland are powerful, and could later lead to bigger problems humans have to face; such as less food from interruptions in the food chain, higher gas prices, and not being able to enjoy the oceans and coasts, like we do today.
Over the past years Native Americans had cared for their own sacred lands, the story and religion that their primogenitors had taught them. The Native Americans had still carried the strong belief, that their land shall stay the same as if it should've been until new people had come in from elsewhere to change the land to something we all see outside till this day. However, there is a new project “The Dakota Access Pipeline” that had crossed the line of Native American trust between the new people that had changed everything the Natives had had since their ancestors were still living. No matter what effect the pipeline puts on most people there are some positive causes that can change a person such as protesters to think positive towards the pipeline being built on Indian reservation land. Even if the pipeline can cause many people to have a thought that the pipeline should not be built, only if they can hear from both sides, they can have a second thought and allow the pipeline to be built.
Drilling in Alaska “ In reality drilling is the slowest, dirtiest, and most expensive way to solve our energy crisis”-Lois Capps. This quote explains how there different ways to solve our problems and drilling is not the right way to solve this. In addition to costing a lot of money, it would also destroy animal habitats.

During the 16th and 17th centuries the Scientific Revolution flourished. While it gained many supporters it had it’s fair share of opponents. Religious controversy, especially with the Catholic Church, hindered the work of scientists by creating barriers to stop the spread of scientific ideas. But many leaders, such as King Louis XIV, supported science for their own political purposes, helping in its advance.
There have been over 1,000 documented cases of water contamination next to areas of gas drilling. This Type of pollution cause many health issues for human such as rashes, stomach or liver illness, respiratory problems and Neurological affects. In some extreme cases the pollution can cause death to some humans. Fracking has huge consequential hazards to the public health and the environment, and many have long term effects. In June 2014 the Public Health published a review of the public health impacts of exposures to chemical and radioactive pollutants, the result of shale gas extraction in the UK was based on the examination of literature and data from countries where fracking had already occurred.
Deep sea exploration can have a variety of benefits. It can provide new information about marine species. This exploration can also teach scientists about adaptations organisms use to survive in unsuitable conditions. However, there is also a lot of controversy surrounding the search for oil. I believe that oil should not be drilled offshore, because it can possibly damage local economies.
