Kann jemand kurz und grob die Fehler rausschreiben bitte, müssen auch nicht alle sein
The representative whitewalshes this accident. He feels emberassed and he knows that it is a serious accident. It can be deduced from the way the man is depicted. He seems lanky and he doesn't take up room by making any geastures.
His assertion also states that the oil is enclosed by the plastic which isn't reality. Herein lies the exxageration, the ocean is drawn that polluted, the water can't even be seen. But this exaggeration is not unfounded if we consider the circumstances of that time.
By this means, the cartoonist wants to show, that big concerns like BP try to cover up and downgrade such serious environmental problems in an almost ridicule way. This assumption can be supported by the fact that incidents like this are not uncommon. For example in 2017, there was another oil accident near Gran Canaria in the atlanctic ocean. It was downgraded as well by the head of a government by saying that the accident hasn't signiflicantly effects on the enviroment. But marine animals and birds are effected by the oil pollution. They die because of the poisonous substances and the plumage of birds becomes sticky. It takes years for the nature to recover.
Furthermore the cartoonist critisizes the company British Patroleum in itself. He propably find foult with the security measures or the audacity in public of the british oil and gas company. The cartoon also wants to express the idea that a general spirit of callousness is in the crowd. True to the motto "the enviroment is already polluted, there's no harm if we cause more damage".
The point the cartoon is trying to make appeals to me, but I'm not sure weather the cartoonist wants to express critism of the company British Patroleum or the way big concerns present topics concerning the environment to public.
The cartoon doesn't touch me, because the character type of the drawing isn't aesthetically pleasing in my opinion. But I like the idea of the message, it's very clever. I entirely agree with it, we should inform ourselves more about the true circumstades concerning the enviroment. The vartoon had an effect on me, I will analyse the speeches of representatives more and reflect about the dire consequences by myself. It is wrong to rely on the media and the claims of the big concerns. Furthermore big concerns like the oil and gas industry think commercially and procrastinate to benifit from the money. They don't care about the enviroment. So its up to us, we should pay more attention and shape our everyday life more envrironmentally conscious.
