Thematic Report - Technology and Environment

by Sainath Manikandan | 17-02-2020 18:55 recommendations 0 recommendations

Our environment is getting degraded due to industrialization. This is having a severe impact and causing negative waves and thereby affecting us as well as our environment. I am going to discuss about the major threats and negative impacts of our environment due to technology.

The threats are as follows:

1.      Depletion of our natural resources causing an ecological imbalance

2.      Global warming

3.      Environmental pollution – water, air, land and so on

There are many living organisms that are becoming endangered and extinct due to the result of technology. The natural habitats of the wildlife is being lost as our human population is increasing. We tend to cut down trees and destroy the forests to make space for human beings to live. Many more activities like extensive farming and deforestation is destroying the environment.

There is a lot of imbalance in the atmospheric gases. Many harmful gases such as carbon dioxide are emitted into the atmosphere. Activities such as use of various modes of transportation, poor farming and agricultural methods, using coal for power generation release greenhouse gases. The extraction of fossil fuel by burning and clearing of farms releases harmful gases thereby affecting our climate.

When we mismanage and use technology, it leads to environmental pollution. Due to the advancement in technology, we have seen the production of many machines, innovations….When we use these products continuously there is a demand and that triggers the production to increase. Due to these facts, the product quality decreases over the course of time causing major harm to our environment.

Most of our resources are being depleted due to technology. The raw materials required to produce new products such as timber, petrol, coal are used in large quantity due to the usage of technology. When we go in for extensive mining of minerals and natural resources such as diamond, gold is being depleted at a very fast rate.

If we the global citizens try to balance and use technology in an appropriate and best way we can reap the benefits of technology without affecting our environment. Technology needs to be used in the proper and controlled way. All of us will agree to the point that technology is very significant in the development and also to satisfy our needs but we need to be responsible enough that it doesn’t adversely affect our environment.

I am also trying to innovate by keeping in mind the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 14 and 2. It would be greatly beneficial to our environment, if we take measures and use technology in the proper way to help the environment and love the planet.

    Hey Sainath!
    It's Lisa your mentor.

    I really love how you use the word 'balance'.
    It is a good way to express how we should pursue our technological development in the future.
    So far, we have only focused on economic development and have been ignorant of the environmental harms comparatively. I think it's time that we balance out these values so that we could be better off in an environmentally friendly way.

    Great job and keep up your work dear:)
