Modern technology has a great impact on our environment. Some say that people should adopt a simple lifestyle to solve this problem, while others argue that the technology itself should provide a solution. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
Today technology facilitates man with great luxury, comforts and services; however, its excessive usage has brought world to the fringe of destruction of environment. Some experts' belief of simple living with meaningful use of technology can lessen environmental problems until technology become eco-friendly.
Nowadays, technology has been exploited by mankind abundantly which has aggravated environment badly. E.g., released smoke of factories and vehicles has created air pollution, chemicalized dumped water has reduced fertility of land. This can be reduced if some proper lifestyles can adopted; e.g., using public transportation more and setting up factories with proper recycling system of waste can relief up to some extent. Moreover, creating green atmosphere in surrounding can filter environment which helps us in getting fresh air and can stop land to get barren.
Nevertheless, technology can be utilized to solve this problem rather than accepting simple lifestyle. Because the way revolutionarily technology gets updated, sooner it might be available which would give complete stats about its hazardous impacts on environment. Moreover, researchers and scientists can engage more in invent alternate resource of energy used in technology which would be eco-friendly. E.g., many electronic giants make their consumer durables ozone friendly, same way car manufacturers have started making hybrid cars run on solar energy up to speed of sixty mile per hour.
Thus, technology should be utilized to find better technology which will be recyclable, eco-friendly and health friendly. However till that time of period, people should use technology where it barely needs otherwise unwanted consequences like radiation, drought, storm and many natural calamities will occur.
