Ban Oil

BAN OIL Ojas Brahma, 16, He/Him Oil is an underlying reason for the majority of conflicts in the modern world. American firm, Halliburton, profited 35 billion dollars from the Iraq War of 2003 (Young). Beautiful landscapes are exploited for this very resource. Approximately 800,000 people die annually as a direct cause of oil and coal due to air pollution (“Health,” Pielke). My expression, “BAN OIL,” represents how nature’s exploitation is resulting in lost lives and the destruction of beautiful landscapes like harvesting oil from the Arctic Circle (E. Allison). “BAN OIL” repetitiveness displays the movement’s prevalence despite blending into the background. These issues push for actions against governments and corporations for a global ban on oil to mitigate the death of millions of people worldwide.
