This Edition of National Perspective is an assessment of the effects oil exploration and production is likely to have on our environment.
Do we save the wild life and forget the oil? Do we sacrifice the fragile eco-system in the name of oil? And how rich is this eco-system? A game ride through Murchison Falls National Park, neighboring the oil rich fields, gives us an insight.
Industrial waste and oil spillage into the national park are some of the fears of the ecologists in the Murchison area.
In fact, the ecologists say that even before the oil is extracted, some animals are already being affected by fumes from too many excavation trucks, the traffic on the road and the amount of human activity around them.
We discuss issues surrounding creating a balance between suitable oil production and conserving the environment.
