Give a brief description of an oil spill and how it can be cleaned up using science.
An oil spill is when oil is released into a body of water due to human activities. To clean up oil spills, scientists have invented many ways to clean up after this disastrous event. Even though there are many methods that are made in order to clean up the oil spills, some of them are very expensive and might even hurt marine life. These techniques that are made are usually referred to as “Separation Techniques” which is to separate the spilled oil from water.
Is science good for humanity? Do the benefits of scientific discovery outweigh the problems it causes?
Science itself benefits humanity because of how it gives us more understanding as well as knowledge of what we are trying to understand/the things we don’t know about, however, even though scientific discoveries produce good outcomes and also gives us more understanding, it will come with different causes and even negative impacts to the environment. However, even though it causes a lot of problems through discovery and also testing, it gives scientists and researchers more ideas as well as learn more about how to create new things that will make human life easier, and be able to create a new environment that will replace the one that both animals and humans lived in before. Scientific discovery outweighs the damages it causes if the experiment produces better outcomes than the damages and problems they have caused. Experimenting and researching allow humans to move on from where they began, if it was not for the scientific discoveries, our lives would not be as easy as it is now.
