As planet earth is facing environmental issues, people question whether or not technology has contributed to increasing pollution and global warming.
Society has been relying on technology to solve problems without realizing how it is affecting nature. Humans have become completely blinded by technology as they are neglecting their relationship with natural resources and their role in helping nature. However, technology has been bringing us advancements that have played a big role in saving the environment.
Smart devices are being programmed to be turned on and off by detecting activity in the room to reduce the amount of energy consumed on a daily basis. In addition, green buildings are being built to reduce expensive lighting costs and the consumption of coal needed to power that lighting.
Humans are discovering how to rely on screen technology to preserve and develop resources, as well as avoid producing waste. Digital tools such as eBooks and streaming media services have eliminated the need for printed materials and producing DVDs.
