The Harm of Technology

The Harm of Technology
Modern science and technology have brought us many wonderful things that help and improve our lives. Science and technology have also brought us many terrible things which threaten to wipe out all life. In general, I feel that technology bring us more harm than good.
The main harmful effect of technology is ?pollution?. Many technological processes produce unwanted by-products, known as pollution, and deplete natural resources, to the detriment of the Earth and its environment. There are few types of pollutions- air, water, land and noise. These few types of pollution can bring a lot of harm to the environment. For example, air pollution. It is the introduction of chemicals, particulate matter, or biological materials that cause harm or discomfort to humans or other living organisms, or damages the natural environment, into the atmosphere. It is the cause of breathing problems, asthma and lung diseases in many of us.
Technology also causes Global warming. There are many causes of global warming. For example, people cut down trees and forests for more spaces or land and for other uses like making papers and furniture. Deforestation also affects the lives of many living animals. If this technology has not been discovered, there won?t be extinction of certain living animals.Now with the new wave of the Internet minds of not only small children, but also adolescents and adults become influenced by this outside information. As the mind develops, things such as pornography, is the main issue in the society. There are teenagers out there being tricked by their online boyfriends and teens can learn inappropriate things in just one click of the mouse. Technology is the main cause of cyber-bullying and online-crimes.

However, Technology has also affected society and its surroundings in a number of ways. In many societies, technology has helped develop more advanced global economy and has allowed the rise of a leisure class. The development of planes, phones and television are beneficial of many of us. For example, we can travel to other countries in one day by plane. In the past, it took years to travel to another country. In Singapore phones are like our daily accessory to us. Almost every Singaporean has a hand-phone. It is very convenient for us to communicate with our families, or friends in case of emergency and so on.

In conclusion, technology is the main cause of pollution to our environment, Global warming, and, cyber-bullying and online- crimes. Hence, technology brought us more harm than good and we should make use of technology appropriately.
