Problems of Technology

Yes, technology solve problems but if technology will not be use carefully, it might take us into another kind of problem.

The development of modern technology provides us with great advantages. Different aspect of our modern life such as transportation, entertainment and communication comes in different technological development. Technology solves many problems but we should take responsibility in dealing with it.

Yes, technology solve problems but if technology will not be use carefully, it might take us into another kind of problem .

One of the example is pollution. Unwanted and harmful substances and materials are now present in our environment, garbage in the form of cellophane and plastics scattered around, waste gasses pollutes the air, and waste as well as toxic in land, these were brought by modern technologies.

Smog, a kind of air pollution particularly hangs over many cities brought by factories and vehicles harms people’s throat, eyes, and lungs.

Another example are the consumption of fossil fuels. These fuels are burned to run factories and automobiles or electricity for homes. As technology grows, there are also growth in the consumption of these fossil fuels. Unfortunately, our environment will take millions of years before it can produce or form new fossil fuels naturally.

There are studies that shows that the earth is running out of fossil fuel supplies. Other believes that earth’s supply will be end up within 100 years, if this time will come, people must have to find other source of fuel.

A harm done by technology can sometimes be repaired by another technology, but still there are dangers that the latter technology may cause another problem or problems.

An example of this is an atomic power plant. Atomic power plant can produce atomic energy. This energy will not use fossil fuels, making our fossil fuels safe from consumption.

The problem is that the atomic energy produces radio active waste which are dangerous for living organisms. An atomic power plant could also be subjected into an atomic explosion by accident.

Scientist are searching for new sources of energy. One of this is the plan to use satellites that will collect solar energy from the sun. The energy that will be gathered would be sent for a receiving station on earth. This time the solar energy would be changed into electricity. this technology indeed might become a major energy source to be used in the future.

    if we know that pollution is bad then why don’t we stop? we keep going not caring what will happen to our kids, our future, we only think of our selves and know one else… we have to change this, our way of living, if not we’re just gonna keep killing our selves slowly, to die in a world of pollution instead of us living life where we can go outside without any shame… why don’t we change?
