the artic tundra oil drilling is very popular because the tundra is rich in mineral resources. It also has destroyed many
areas of the tundra. Russia, Greenland, and Canada's artic tundras have had their minerals extracted from the ground. These
sites also have harmful dusts and gases which cause air pollution. When the harmful dusts settle in the neiboring ponds, streams
and lakes the fish can not survive in the water even people can't go in the waters.
In the tundra oil drilling
is big business. Oil drilling unfortunately hurts the tundra. Mining and oil drilling take the land away from the animals
in the tundra because of the noise the machines make. Even plants cannot because of the polution.
The greatest fear the
tundra has is oil spillage. The consequences can be devastating if the oil leaks on the ground and in the waters. When an
animal comes in contact with the oil it will die. Oil spills can ruin biomes as fragile as the tundra. Decadeds after an oil
spill no plants or animals will return.
