Technology is getting more and more advanced from the Stone Age till the date which has both positive and negative impacts on the natural ecosystem. New inventions and technology are affecting everything whether air, water, land or humans. Let’s discuss both separately.
Negative impacts –
A large number of inventions are taking place from a long time, providing much better facilities to improve living standards but these amenities have a lot of harmful impact on nature causing severe problems like global warming, air pollution, soil erosion and many more.
Using new and advanced technologies in industries to make work easy Plays a big role in causing global warming as they release many toxic gases in the air which causes eroding of ozone layer resulting in global warming which led to the uncertainty of weather patterns causing droughts and floods in many areas. Air pollution not just happens because of industries but also the more and more usage of vehicles, air conditioners are also causing air pollution which ultimately destroys the environment.
Industries are not only raising air pollution with new technologies but are also polluting water with its waste. The poor management of hydroelectricity and waste products of industries which are released to the water causes pollution to lakes, rivers, underground water and are even responsible for killing many marine creatures.
Positive Impacts –
Advanced technology proved to be a big help for many things. It reduces the cutting of trees as many people have started to keep their data digitally rather than manually on papers which lessen the deforestation and hence the problems of soil erosion, floods, etc is resolving.
Green technology has brought some great ideas and energy saving ways. It has introduced ways of generating heat and energy with great results. Green Technology plays a very crucial role in the maintenance of natural ecosystem which includes the methods of low power consumption such as natural gas, biofuels etc.
Usage of Renewable sources will not only help us in saving non-renewable resources like fossil fuel, oil etc but will also balance natural ecosystem as it causes a negligible amount of harm to the environment. One can use renewable sources like solar energy, wind energy, thermal energy which will ultimately reduce pollution too and save our nature.
