NATURE VERSES TECHNOLOGY

As technology proliferates day by day, it has come to our attention to question the relationship between nature and technology. Do the benefits outweigh its consequences on nature? Do we depend on technology too much? Technology is a part of our evolution. It is, therefore a natural process and, it is essential for our civilized lives. However, we haven’t been cautious about the way we use technology. We carelessly spoiled nature’s resources and, disrupt its balance. We jeopardize the future of next generations. Now we ought to change the way we interact with technology and nature by not being as dependent to our existing and limited natural resources and finding new ways to produce renewable energy, stopping pollution and adapting a more eco-friendly lifestyle to save our planet from destruction. Moreover, we must change our attitudes over each other and provide aid to those who suffer from the causes of our interaction with nature to achieve justice in the world and regain our morality. As the damage on the earth seems to be one of the most important consequences of an aggressive use of technology we need to direct our attention to the discovery of new energy resources. As Bertrand states; ” Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate.”(Home) This shows us that, if we can’t find new ways to get what we need from nature, soon, we won’t have anything left. That’s why we should focus on renewable energy resources. Renewable energy resources include sunlight, wind, waves and geothermal heat. Countries such as New Zealand, Iceland, Austria and Sweden made the development of renewable energy sources their top priority. Wind farms in Denmark produce 20% of the country’s electricity. Some countries use sea snakes to produce electricity by the energy of the waves. Iceland produces electricity by geothermal plants. (Home) But...
