There is no doubt that technical progress has changed the face of the world. Some people think that it has a positive effect on the environment, while others do not agree.
In my opinion, technical progress has only negative influence on our nature. Firstly, modern cars are the most dangerous objects which pollute air. Secondly, the number of factories is increasing. Nowadays, most of them emit toxic waste into rivers, lakes, seas or oceans and harm to the underwater world. Thus, different species of fishes and animals die. Finally, a large number of forests are cut down to maintain our goods production.
On the other hand, some people consider that technical inventions are not destructive to the environment. They are convinced that nowadays, people produce medical equipment that saves lives of people and animals.
Besides, there are new methods cleaning water or air with the help of different filters and stations. In addition, there are factories for the recycling of domestic and technical waste.
Personally, I do not agree with the above idea. In my view, modern technologies do more harm than good. I do not think that cleaning filters are the best solution as they cannot remove all toxic substances from water or air completely. Furthermore, often, corporations want to avoid the costs associated with having to limit creation of hazardous waste.
In conclusion, I would like to stress that there are two different points of view on the problem. However, I still strongly believe that technical progress is bad for the environment as the humanity forget that we are not alone on this planet and should keep it.
