Please give my essay some comments.
I appriciate them in advance.
#081: Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Technology has made the world a better place to live. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.
The application of technologies to our lives like inventions positively has benefited us, but the civilization of our lives brought by that, in turn, has damaged the environment. Thus, I cannot agree nor disagree with this statement.
No doubt that technologies have contributed to human living in the world. The spreads of electricity, clean water, or roads available have been all achieved mainly because technologies have been invented or improved. Thanks to that the globe has been more convenient place for human beings. In advanced countries, people can no longer need fireplaces to warm themselves, can drink purified water just turning on a tap, and can walk or drive paved roads smoothly. Consequently not only have we been able to be exempted from the tiresome work with which our ancestry was burdened before, but the condition of our living on earth have become healthy, safe, fast-paced.
However, we have accomplished such a modern life at the cost of the environment and resources of the earth, two thirds of which have been already lost. This has not just posed numerous enviromental problems such as grobal warming, endangered species, and more recently in Southeast Asia hazes, but also threaten our own sustenance on the earth. I belive the existence of our future generations will depend on the development and advancement of more eco-friendly technologies, for electricity, like the one efficient and emissions-free capturing and sequestering hydrogen from renewables.
Summing up, technologies have helped make our human lives conveient just as much as damage the environment and resources. Now even human existence is at risk. However, I believe since many people in the world are now realizing the facts, and many technologies have been produced that would work well both for us and the earth, these problems will soon be solved.
