Oil film on oceans may be causing droughts CARACAS Delegates to the United Nations conference on the law of the sea did not have to go far to find the effect Venezuela's oil industry has had on its environment.

The lake bed is covered with six feet of and 000 kilometres of pipeline. Almost half of the lake is dotted with oil rigs. There are more than inoperative their skeletons obscur- ing the horizon. It is to remove the the oil com- panies so they remain as a memorial to the world's de- mand for oil. Lake Maracaibo has been killed by the thousands of bar- rels of oil that have been unin- tentionally spilled into its wa- ters. And Lake Maracaibo flows directly into the sea. Samples taken from every ocean of the world show a thin coating of a fraction of a millimetre thick. The oil keeps a percentage of sunlight from reaching the ocean below. More than 70 per cent of the world's oxygen supply is re- newed through the biological action of plankton near the ocean's surface and on its bed. The plankton dies when its exact quota of oxygen is not met. When it so do the minute plants and animals that feed on it. Dr Rene van a Belgian fears the thin film of oil also may be preventing the breaking of water bubbles that are med due to the action of waves. The majority of evaporation is through the breaking of these and Dr. van Grieken looks upon recent droughts in various parts of the world as frightening in- dication that this oily film might already be interfering with the normal production of Canada's de- mand for the authority to im- pose stricter pollution stan- dards in sensitive ticularly the Arctic finding much scientific sup- port Scientists believe that sus- tained exposure to oil will stain lessening their ability to reflect sunlight.
