In this article, you will know about the Positive and Negative Effects of Technology on the Environment.
How modern technology is harmful to the environment and how modern technology is beneficial for the environment. fossil fuels, factories
The time has changed now from the past.
In most places of work, modern technology takes place. I think we can’t find out where technology is not used. Modern technology is very beneficial for us, it has a lot of advantages for us, for society, and the environment.
Modern technology helps us in making our work easier and more effective.
But also, modern technology has a lot of bad effects on us and the environment.
As we know that modern technology is used in industrialization development around the world. That can cause a lot of bad effects on the environment and damage the natural earth.
Most of the negative effects of modern technology on the environment are caused by the misuse of modern technology.
Modern technology is now developing a kind of technology that can decrease the negative effects modern technology on the environment.
People need to know how modern technology affects their living environment.
That they can prevent their environment from the negative effects of modern technology, and make the environment suitable for living.
This is the basic aim of this article. That person should know how our misuse of modern technology affects the environment.
Now, I am going to discuss both the positive and negative effects of modern technology on society.
Positive and Negative Effects of Technology on the Environment
first I want to discuss all the negative effects of modern technology on the environment.
Negative Effects of Modern Technology on the Environment
All the negative effects of modern technology on the environment are given below:
1. Heat Pollution Cause by the Extensive Use of Technology
As the usage of technology increases day by day, the heat pollution of the environment also increases.
Most of the modern technology used in our society daily produces a lot of heat in the environment and makes the environment atmosphere warm.
The global temperature of the environment is increasing at a high rate in the last 50 years due to the usage of technology.
There are a lot of causes by which the atmosphere’s temperature is increased by the usage of technology.
The first one is the usage of automobile technology vehicles is increasing day by day, which produces a lot of heat in the environment and makes the atmosphere warm.
Even for a couple of miles, people are used to going by motorcycle or car.
The second one is, in most of the areas, people cut off the trees, where the large factories are made in which the large types of machinery are used daily.
Which produces a large amount of heat in the atmosphere.
Trees and plants play a very important role in maintaining the temperature of the earth.
Also, the factories emit dangerous gases into the environment atmosphere which is very harmful to peoples and other living things and also damage the ozone layer of the atmosphere.
By which the harmful rays from the sun directly come to the earth’s atmosphere which is very harmful to living things and also causes increases in the global temperature.
Prevention of Heat Pollution
For the prevention of heat temperature, we have to do the following things.
- we have to plant trees as much as we can. plants and trees play a very important role in maintaining the heat temperature of the earth.
- Reduce the usage of technology. Mostly the disturbance in the atmosphere temperature is caused by the misusage of technology.
- Try to use modern technology that cannot produce heat pollution in the environment, and prevent heat pollution.
2. Wastage Produced by Technology
Waste produced by technology also causes a disturbance in the environment.
Most technology produces a large amount of waste which can be very harmful to the environment.
Most of the technology used in the factories produces a large amount of wastage which is thrown in the water lakes or somewhere which is very harmful to the environment and for the living things.
The waste of technology produces harmful gases and smells that are very harmful to living things.
It also poisons the water which people use in daily life, causing a lot of dangerous diseases.
Prevention from the Wastage Pollution of Technology
In the prevention of the waste of technology we have to do the following things:
- Reduce the use of technology.
- Throw the waste of technology in places where humans not living.
- Use the filtration technology of water for clean water.
- Try to use technology that can recycle.
Deforestation is also one of the causes of the disturbance of the environment. People use technology for cutting trees and plants and also cut the trees for using the technology.
Which causes the rise in the global warming of the earth because plants and trees can absorb a large amount of heat.
People cut the trees for making the furniture and other things made of wood and didn’t think about their effects on the environment.
Forest produces large amounts of oxygen and absorbs a large amount of carbon dioxide and makes the environment suitable for living.
Prevention of the problems Cause deforestation
For the prevention of deforestation problems, we have to perform some important work:
- Try to plant trees as much as we can, instead of cutting them.
- Spread the awareness and importance of planting trees.
- Ban on the cutting of plants and trees.
4. Air Pollution Cause by Technology
Air pollution is also caused by the excessive use of technology.
Most of the technology produces harmful gases such as sulfur dioxide, nitric oxide, methane, and carbon dioxide which are very harmful to the environment.
These kinds of gases mix with the other gases present in the atmosphere of our environment and produce other kinds of harmful and dangerous gases.
Which causes a lot of dangerous diseases in humans and other living things.
Most of the technologies used in factories release dangerous gases into the atmosphere of our environment.
The usage of automobiles is increasing day by day which produces a large amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Which are very harmful to the environment and living things.
It also causes global warming.
Due to the large amount of carbon dioxide released in the atmosphere rise the global temperature of the atmosphere.
Prevention of the Air Pollution Cause by Usage of technology
The prevention from the waste of technology we have to do the following things:
- we have to reduce the use of technology
- Reduce the use of vehicles
- Reduce the use of technology that produces carbon dioxide
- Increase planting trees.
5. Water Pollution Cause by Technology
Water pollution is also one of the bad effects caused by modern technology.
It is the life of living things; without water, we cannot survive. for living healthy life taking pure water is very important.
The extensive use of modern technology pollutes water.
The technology used in the factories produces a large amount of waste and mixes it with the water sea, reservoirs, rivers, and lakes.
by which the water becomes poisons which are very harmful to humans and also other living things.
Usually, our wastewater also mixes into the clean water, our wastewater is water from our sinks, washrooms, bathrooms, etc.
Which is very harmful to the people and causes many harmful diseases.
Common water pollutions Cause Includes
- Industrial waste.
- Domestic waste
Prevention of the Water Pollution Cause by the Usage of Technology
The prevention water pollution caused by the usage of technology we have to do the following things:
- Spread awareness of the diseases caused by polluted water.
- Government has to make a law for the factories to not throw their waste into clean water.
- Reduce the usage of such technologies that pollute the water.
6. Soil Pollution
Soil pollution is another big issue caused by the excessive usage of technology. It is usually caused by the chemical wastage of factories.
The chemical wastage released from the factories mix in the ground soil and the soil absorbed the chemical wastage.
And as a result of this the causes less productivity in agriculture because the soil becomes poisoness and cannot grow the fruits and vegetables.
Nowadays people used the medicines invented by scientists by using technology that is very harmful to the soil.
Sona Urea people used for the forming to increase productivity but it damages the soil of the farms after sometimes the soil didn’t produce the fruits.
Technology affects a lot the soil which is not good for the environment.
7. Mobile Tower Ultra Radiations
Mobile phones are the most usable technology nowadays used by people.
A mobile phone is a tele-communicative technology by which people can communicate with others around the world easily.
The ratio of mobile users increases day by day.
Telecommunication companies try to make their services faster as they can.
For this purpose, they make the mobile signals tower in many places in the world to provide mobile services everywhere around the world.
The mobile towers produce radio-frequencies radiations in the environment which is very harmful to people and all living things.
They try to make their services faster and for this, they increase the radiation of radio frequencies, which affect a lot the livings things.
I remember when the 5th generation(5g) technology was introduced to the world. It almost killed all the birds of the city because its frequency was very high.
This is how much technology affects our environment.
8. Depletion of Natural Resources
Modern technology another bad effect on our environment is the depletion of natural resources. People use natural resources for the sake of using technology.
The faster consumption of natural resources gradually increases the depletion of natural resources.
For example, they use fuel and CNG gas for using vehicles for transporting from one place to another place.
Another example is they use coil and wood for using other kinds of big technological machines in factories.
For this purpose, they used to go and cut the trees and plants from the areas and dig for fuel and gases.
Depletion of Natural Resources Include
- Aquifer Depletion.
- Soil Erosion
- Natural minerals
- Fossils fuels.
Natural resources play a very important role in the maintenance of the environment.
The consumption of natural resources increased day by day with advanced technology.
As the population increase, the usage of technology and natural resources also increases, and as a result the depletion of natural resources also increases.
9. Non-Recyclable Waste of Technology
Most technology waste is non-recyclable, which cannot be recycled.
And wastage that cannot be recycled causes different kinds of diseases in the environment.
Most of the waste of technology is a placed in the ground or thrown into the water, which produces different kinds of viruses and bacteria in the environment.
Which causes different kinds of dangerous diseases in humans and other living things.
10. Damage the Ozone Layer
The excessive usage of modern technology damage the ozone layer of our environment
The gases released from the technology that we use daily mix with the other gases already present in our environment.
Which badly affects the ozone layer of our environment.
As a result of damaging the ozone layer of our environment, the dangerous rays coming from the sun enter directly to the earth with any filtration.
The ozone layer actually works as a filtering of light rays coming from the sun, reflects the dangers of the sun, and lets the safe rays enter the earth’s atmosphere.
Effects of Depletion in the Ozone Layer
- non-melanoma skin cancer.
- Marine Ecosystems
- biogeochemical cycles,
- Effects on Plants
- Effects on Materials
And many more.
This is how the excessive usage of modern technology affects our environment.
Positive Effects of Modern Technology on Our Environment
The positive effects of modern technology on our environment are given below:
1. Wind Turbine Technology
Development in modern technology is increasing day by day. Scientists try to develop new technologies which can be helpful for our environment.
Wind technology is very helpful we use it to produce electricity. Instead of using fuel, gas, or any other kind of natural resources for producing electricity.
We can use wind turbine technology and produce electricity with the help of the wind.
Wind turbine technology didn’t produce any kind of harmful gases to the environment. We can use it safely.
Wind technology is invented to make our environment safe and clean from the dangerous gases produced by the other technology used for producing electricity.
2. Electricity Produced by Solar Panels
Solar panels are also invented for environment cleaning from the dangerous gases produced by other technology.
People used different kinds of generators for producing electricity which also produces different kinds of dangerous gases in the environment.
which are very harmful to all the living things present in the environment.
Solar panels produce electricity from the heat and light coming from the sun.
It absorbs the light and heat energy coming from the sun and converts it to electrical energy. Which we can use.
Solar panels didn’t produce any kind of dangerous gases in the environment, it is safer than other technology used for producing electricity.
3. Tides Waves Technology
Tides waves technology is developed to make our environment clean and safe. It is also used for producing electricity.
It is used in the oceans, seas, lakes, and dams to produce electricity by the wave’s tides of water.
Tides wave turbine technology produces electricity by the pressure of water waves and converts its energy to electrical energy.
The benefits of tidal wave technology are it does not produce any harmful gases it is pollution-free.
4. Solar Vehicles Technology
Modern technology invents solar cars, there are solar panels on the top of the car and rechargeable batteries inside the car.
The solar panels on the top of the car convert the solar energy to electrical energy and charge it in the batteries of the car for night use.
The batteries inside the cars also can be charged with electricity.
The purpose of inventing solar cars is to prevent the environment from vehicle pollution, it does not produce any kind of dangerous gases in the environment.
Solar cars are pollution-free.
5. Technology that Clean the Environment
There are a lot of modern technology machines and devices which can clean the environment atmosphere.
You can see it in different places of the earth, which capture the wind from the environment and filter it from carbon dioxide and other harmful gases.
It is known as DAC direct air capture.
Also, other kinds of technological devices and machines are developed for cleaning the water. it catches the water and filters it out of bacteria and other harmful organisms.
These technological machines and devices aim to monitor the environmental problems cause by the usage of technology and reduce the negative effects of technology on the environment.
Modern technology has a lot of negative and positive effects on the environment.
The main thing is it depends on us, that how we use the technology. It’s in our hands, we can save our environment from the bad effects of the excessive usage of technology, or we can damage it.
It’s our responsibility to save our environment from the bad effects of the excessive usage of technology. We have to consider the bad effects of modern technology on our environment while using it.
We have to limit the usage of technology to prevent the environment from the bad or negative effects of technology. And do such things, which can save our environment from the bad effects of technology.
So, these are the positive and negative effects of modern technology on the environment,
