How technology has taken over the environment’s immortality

Friday, February 21, 2014   by: Greener Ideal

The rapid progression of technology has brought change to the world and in our ways. Technology has contributed to industrialization, urbanity, changes in traditions, economic booms in major cities, trends of high rise and technological buildings, communication, and has drastically changed our perspective on the planet. When considering all of these improvements, we are led to believe that technology has made our lives easier.

For instance, with the present technology, transportation is easier, enabling people to move from one place to another at a faster rate; communication is just a click away and you may now have a perfect baby or even twins! If we think about it, this technological revolution has numerous benefits for us. However, with these benefits we are blinded by the negative effects it has brought upon us – especially that this age of technological advancement has taken its toll on our environment.

Weighing the Progress, Forgetting the Losses

Over the past year, technology has reached new heights with the devices in science, communication and entertainment. Last year has been promising for technological advances – scientist have developed the bionic eye, high definition Smart TVs, Lab-grown burgers, voice operated gadgets, 3D printers, and even flying cars. What’s next for our technology? In the upcoming years, tech experts foresee that more technologies will continue to grow beyond expectations, Smart TVs will become smarter and maybe we could grow our own clothes!

Beyond this advancement in information technology, the growth of technological industries and economic boom in major cities has contributed to the rapid and unsustainable pattern of urban development to cope up with the growth of population.

As the population grows, the urban environment is exposed to hazards which include waste disposal, reduction of water resources, health and sanitation, and pollution among others.

Moreover, urbanization or urban development is detrimental to the environment since it results in the loss of green space or deforestation which is home to various animals and plants. world forest cover Source: earth-policy.org

The term urbanization refers to an increase in population in cities which began during the industrial revolution where human populations had to move towards industrial centers where factories are situated. Over time, more and more isolated areas have been transformed into residential, commercial, and industrial centers as a means to accommodate the urban development.

Urbanization offers more jobs to people, access to healthcare, and a sudden boom in the economy among others. As stated, you can see that technology has attracted these people towards the cities thus embracing urbanity. Urbanization has a large impact on the environment which is home to everyone, all of humanity. Earth is home to all living beings and is our main resource for our entire life support system such as water, plants, and air. However, urbanity blinds us from the full picture wherein we are forgetting that the environment has but limited resources. With urbanization, population is increased which triggers the need for a living space thus the need to cut down the trees in place of residential units or condominiums. Water and air pollution is also increased in urbanization. We think too much about development that we forget the hazards that it poses on humanity and to the environment. Trees are vital to the environment and are crucial to every living space as it creates a pleasing environment, clean the air we breathe, and is a solution to world hunger. As such, green architectural designs are environment-friendly infrastructures could be constructed in an urban setting. Humans should realize the need for environment-friendly facilities to balance nature and the growth of technology.

The Paradox Story of Technology Saving the Environment

Regardless of claims that technology and urbanity degrades the environment; urbanity may also be a force of good to the improvement and safety of our environment.

Urbanization brings people to the cities and takes them far from rural areas where our ecological environment thrives. A high concentration of workers in the cities, which focus on service-oriented industries that generally pollute less than manufacturing companies, makes it beneficial to the environment. Also since more and more people are choosing to move in condominiums or apartments closer to their workplaces, air pollution is reduced and energy consumption is saved as the same time. Since the population continues to rise in urban areas, land usage is limited within the cities. As such, urbanity forces people to exercise, encourages walking, and promotes cycling towards a healthy lifestyle. Living Urban.

Moreover, urbanity efficiently makes use of available natural resources and makes environment-friendly infrastructures such as condominiums with mature trees and green architectural designs. Along with these ecological designs, developers have also improved the facilities such as piped water, sanitation, and waste management in order to eliminate the common misconception that urbanization brings forth numerous problems. This shows the attempt of people to utilize urban development and efficiently use infrastructures towards contemporary living without sacrificing the environment.

Technology is also a driver of innovation for go-green technologies. Numerous inventions like biofuels, water operated engines, and electric cars have turned up over the past years. All these technologies hope for cleaner gas emissions or the total eradication of smoke pollution and gas emissions. Urbanization makes people aware of technologies that damage the environment as they see it with their own eyes. The damage brought about by fossil fuels in running cars is just one of the few factors that destroy our planet that we live in. As such, researchers found ways through which they would eradicate these hazardous elements and still go about technological advancement. Though the concept of a green innovation is still fresh, it is safe to say that humanity still has not turned its back towards taking care of the environment. In the long run, green innovations and technologies will thrive in the market towards an energy-efficient economy and environment.

With urbanity, comes access to better education, shelter, food and health provisions which are not present in rural areas. These benefits continue to attract more and more people towards contemporary living in the city. This growth generates more affordable homes for people and an efficient use of land while avoiding congestion at the same time. Apparently, technology could really save the environment and humanity.

The Possibilities of the Seemingly Unfeasible Cutback

Technology and humanity will forever be tied together. It is with this fact that we humans will continue to search for ways to make our lives easier and more comfortable that the possibility of technology as the key towards a golden age of environment is plausible. With the development of technology and urbanity, numerous companies have searched for ways to achieve a green technology and green architectural designs to eliminate the harmful effects of urbanity and technology to our health and our environment.

The rise in modern technology and urbanity has also increased globalization which brought an increase in energy consumption at the same time. More and more countries see that urbanity brings in low carbon technology. This technology, which originated from China, targets the elimination of gas emissions to the atmosphere and avoid air pollution particularly carbon. This is through cutting down on car transportation and the use of hydroelectric resources for a low carbon future.

In addition to cleaner air and green innovations, technology has also saved numerous trees through the elimination of paper in our daily work. Through the rapid advancement of technology, communication is mainly through cellular phones and computers which do not involve the use of papers. Most international companies are rooting for paperless offices provided that they have a strong IT support in their company. Reducing paper saves a lot of trees and forest allowing better conservation of our natural resources.

Technology has also enabled the industrialization of farming and food production. Farming and plant pruning techniques have improved as it could now yield fast growing crops and fruit trees without having to worry about weather factors. Take for instance, the production of lab-grown burgers which did not require any animal to be harmed. Pretty soon we may be able to grow spaghetti in the comfort of our own home. With all these things considered, it is not impossible for us to utilize the technology to our own advantage – especially in saving our environment. Modern technology may be our answer towards reducing the environmental damage we have caused over the past decade. The possibility that technology will yield to the golden age of humanity is promising but it is up to us on how we could manage this knowledge responsibly to bring about the immortality of our environment. Technology has indeed hit our lifestyle drastically.

Technology will continue to advance at a rapid pace and the changes will carry on, both positive and negative. Though technology leads us back to humanity as the root of these advancements, the reason behind this is to make life easier and comfortable. The sad part is, increased usage and frequency of technology has led to environmental, social, and even economic issues which continue to worsen. We should realize that moderation is the key towards utilizing the available technology. We must not be passive about the issues at hand and make a move towards eliminating these negative effects and reengineer technology towards keeping the environment’s immortality at peace.
