A professor who tried to look at the Gulf oil spill from a different perspective found that it could have powered 38,000 cars, and 3,400 trucks, and 1,800 ships for a full year. Prof James Corbett from University of Delaware based his findings on the estimated spill rate of 19,000 barrels of oil per day.
He has launched a website that reports the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in terms of lost uses of the lost fuel on a daily basis.
Users can choose the spill rate they believe is most accurate from a range of reported estimates, and the website will automatically calculate how many cars, trucks, and ships could have been powered for a year.
But the researcher proposes solutions too, such as — improving automobile fuel economy to 35.5 miles per gallon, which would offset demand equivalent to the gasoline energy lost by 199 years of Deepwater Horizon daily releases.
if it happened once again world will lack behind with fuel.. world with fuel will cost million to trillion effect on the economy and development works...
