Man’s invention makes contribution to a wonderful place to live on the earth in term of new technology development. However, there is also a great danger of the earth which has been affected by human activity. Thus, protecting the nature of the earth is more important than taking advantage of natural environment to build a better place to live.
Some people believe that human creativity make a comfortable living because they can easily access to homes, cars, holidays and schools than the Stone Age people. In the past, people did not even have proper shelters to protect themselves from the strong weather but now they have everything they need. For example, in winter, people have winter clothes and heater. In summer, they install air-conditioning in their building. Transportation and communication are very convenient nowadays. In the past, people was using horse and traveled by foot from one place to another which consumed longer time but now because of new technology development, people even can travel to the moon. Also it only takes few hours from Asia to America. The form of communication was totally changed. During the monarchic era around 16th century, people set a fire to signal a warming or to communicate between their troops. Now people can use phone, SMS, and Skape to communicate more accurately and efficiently. It can communicate instantly and it can even see face to face by video call or video chat. Consequently the world becomes a village. That’s why human activity is making a perfect world.
Even though the new invention of technology makes the world like the heaven, it destroys the natural environment on the earth. For instance, Air-conditioning produce cool and comfortable temperature inside building but at the same time it produces carbon dioxide which pollutes the environment. There are hundreds of thousands of air-conditioning producing carbon dioxide every day. Also greenhouse gases, cars and factories pollution which cause global warming today. When our earth is warming, the ice cap in the North Pole melts down so there is flooding in many countries like Philippine. The earthquake, volcano, and Tsunami are occurring as a result of destroying the nature of environment. Therefore, human activity is harming the environment.
Likewise, human activity cannot make a better place to live if their activities are harming or destroying the environment because without a better environment human cannot survive. The association between human and earth is like an egg and a hen. If there are no eggs, it cannot make a hen and if there are no hens, it cannot make an egg. Thus, In order to make a better place people have to make sure that they are not destroying the environment. Hence, people should not blind their eyes in the short term luxurious life. They also have to anticipate and take actions for long term consequence of the impact.
In conclusion, the correlation between new technology development and natural protection are always challenging to get a great solution. They both are controversial to mankind. I strongly believe that there is a way to make a better place without damaging our natural environment.
