The extraction of oil is responsible for the deforestation, degradation, and environmental devastation of lands across the globe. The oil extraction process results in the release of toxic drilling by-products into local rivers, while broken pipelines and leakage result in persistent oil spillage. In addition, the construction of roads for accessing remote oil sites opens remote lands to colonists and land developers. The flames pollute the atmosphere and can cause fires, threatening the lives of local inhabitants. Unnecessary flaring is also a waste of gas which could provide energy to local people, reducing deforestation. Moreover, a sudden availability of funds arising from oil or gas extraction is a mixed blessing. Where local, national and regional administrations do not have the capacity or the long-term planning required to manage large budgets, they may go overboard by investing in ambitious (or
