At a distance of about 1500 miles towards the west of Cape Town in South Africa, oil spill occurred in the south Atlantic that put millions of Northern Rockhopper penguins’ life in danger (“Fragile Earth” 1). In the present time, the most rare and endangered Penguin specie is the Rockhopper Penguin. The very specie ha been affected the most by this incident. It is quite likely that this incident becomes sufficient to make this specie completely extinct. Tons of diesel fuel and crude oil have soaked their furs and blocked their nostrils. A lot of penguins have died since the spill occurred. This is the most severe oil spill that has occurred in 2011 and is a potential issue of engineering ethics. The oil discharging company remained highly unethical in its practice. In this course, we have been taught that engineers should discharge the waste in ways that are environment friendly. The oil spill in the south Atlantic was totally unfriendly towards the environment. Works Cited: “Fragile Earth: Oil Spill, March 16 2011, Threatens world's most endangered species of Penguin.” 2011.

Scholars have argued that there is no “right” answer to an ethical dilemma. Therefore, what is an ethical dilemma or issue? It is a predicament without a satisfactory answer. The consequence of an ethical issue lays in the truth that very diverse ethical choices concerning the same ethical issue can be made resulting in neither decision being a right or wrong choice (Henderson, 2009).
