TO DRILL OR NOT TO DRILL 2 To Drill or Not to Drill Is drilling really a good choice for us? Many might say yes, I on the other hand do not think it is good to do off-shore drilling. Although I do think we need to stop our dependency on foreign oil as well. One true event comes to mind as to why we need to stop drilling and find other form of energy, the Deep-Water Horizon disaster. On April 20, 2010 the Deep-Water Horizon platform exploded. According to an article I found in the library two days after the explosion, the fiery rig sank a mile to the bottom of the Gulf. Near the wreckage, broken pipes steadily leaked an estimated 35,000 to 60,000 barrels of oil per day from the underwater well. (Hamalainen, 2010) I am originally from New Orleans and I have seen first-hand what this type of disaster can do to the local economy. The BP oil spill hurt the businesses that rely on the waters from the Gulf.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
