    6. 6. Transporting and RefiningAs oil is a liquid we have been able to comeup with innovative ways to transport it.Oil pipelines span the world connecting oilwells with ports and refineriesOil is refined by heating it up and thenprogressively cooling it down
    7. 7. Our use of oil Ways we use itTransportation- cars Agriculture- Trucks - Pesticide- Busses - Herbicides- Boats - Fertilizers- Air travel ElectricityMaterials Generation- Plastics- Synthetic

    12. 12. OverconsumptionWithout oil we would have limitedtransportation options.Plastics would become un-produceableWe will lose fertilizersWe won’t be able to make any pesticides.
    13. 13. AlternativesI think biofuel can used as an alternative inthe short term.We can use hydrogen fuel cells to powerthe car of the future.Replace oil energy production with cleanrenewable sources
    14. 14. Why are we so reliant?Oil has been able to take the jobs ofhumans more productively and efficiently.Cars are reliant on oil driving demandThe hydrocarbons have been harvested toproduce nylons and plasticsOil companies are focused on money first,the world later.
