Transcript of The relationship between technology and the environment is s

Technology leads to speedy developments and changes. But at the same time technology gobbles up resources very fast. It means that the depletion of raw materials is also very fast.
The relationship between technology and the environment is sort of mixed. In some ways, it is good for the environment, but in other ways it is bad.
Bad: The main problem with technology is the fact that, as we get more and more technology, the demand for electricity rises (as more people want to use electronics in more ways). This, of course, means more fossil fuels will be burned to make the electricity. In addition, some components of electrical devices are very harmful to the environment if not properly disposed of.
Good: Ideally, IT can be used to help reduce stress on the environment. A good example of this is the "smart grids" that are under development. These would, it is hoped, help us use electricity much more efficiently, thus reducing the demand for electricity and the amount of resources used to produce that electricity.
Therefore technology is a very powerful tool available to us today to improve performance in any endeavour of human activity. It can be used to achieve any given objective of human endeavour more effectively and efficiently. Protecting and improving environment is one of the many areas in which information technology can contribute a lot. The relationship of information technology with environment is same as that with any other organized activity.
Science and technology is the best thing society could ever ask for. Since the industrial revolution in the 18th century science has been in progress. Some sectors that have been boosted by science and technology are energy, physical sciences, information and communication. The society has greatly gained with the invention of technology.
The developing world has a long tradition of participatory action research, popular education and community organization joining up to solve some science and technology issues that affect the society. How is science and technology related to the society is something that is calling even for the government intervention
Without society then there would be no science and technology and that is why the invention of certain tools and equipment have helped achieve big things. Society can not do without the industries we have today. The society needs science and technology.
The creation of computers is work of art by individuals was a milestone that would come a long way in helping the society. A computer helps us to leverage ourselves by gaining valuable information that we can use to enrich our lives. The impact of science and technology can seriously be recognized.
Science and Society
Technology and
The advent of Internet social networking and mobile phones has changed how often humans interact with each other and how they stay connected. Multitasking and filling up time with communication technology challenges actual productiveness.
The use of the postal service to mail cards and letters, telephone books, newspapers and telegrams have plummeted. Book stores and music stores are no longer needed. The Internet has changed the way political campaigns are conducted, and people can diagnose their own medical problems or search for free legal advice on the Web.
Wi-Fi technologies change how public transportation works. Robotics has changed the workplace providing for some tasks to be completed by automated systems. Applications and online shopping allow purchases to be made using a bar code app or PayPal.
Technology has made wristwatches obsolete since electronic devices have clock displays. The foundation of privacy principles are forever changed with photo-sharing sites such as Instagram and Flickr. People sleep less, work less and spend less time physically together socializing and communicating when using technology.
With the advancing of technologies that are able to overcome the obstacles of time and space (e.g., airplanes, cars, the Internet), one would think that these tools would be used to gain an understanding of other cultures, meet people all over the world, maintain and strengthen familial relationships, communicate effectively with others, and help people to become more socially adept. However, some technological advances cause people to be distracted, overly stressed, and increasingly isolated.
Many people are involved in an abundant number of relationships through technology, but sometimes the quantity of these associations leaves people feeling qualitatively empty. Obviously, technology has had a profound impact on what it means to be social.
Social networking sites, and today’s communication tools. Then we critically reflect on gaming and television. Think about how each technology affects your social life and social skills. Keep in mind that these are only a few of the technologies that may affect you socially.

The use of social networking sites has both positive and negative consequences. It is amazing how someone can find a long-lost friend through a social networking site, enabling them to reconnect. In a society where people have become quite mobile and family and friends are often geographically separated, it is convenient to keep in touch through technology.
Mass Media
Mass media is the means that are used to communicate to the general public. we will learn the different platforms for mass media and the influence that mass media has on society. Mass media means technology that is intended to reach a mass audience.
It is the primary means of communication used to reach the vast majority of the general public. The most common platforms for mass media are newspapers, magazines, radio, television and the internet. The general public typically relies on the mass media to provide information regarding political issues, social issues, entertainment and news in pop culture
Computers play a great role in the society. Whether at home, in school, at the mall or in the office, significantly help in the accomplishment of various tasks. Be it at work or at play, computers have undeniably been utilized to perform general or specific that enable to be more convenient and worry-free.
Computers in Bussiness
In the field of business, computers are very useful. They are used in keeping records of daily sales and profits. Computers are also used to prepare materials to promote the products of the business establishments.

Computers in Engineering
Engineers use computers to create the design of a complex object using a computer program for Computer-Aided Drafting.

Computers in Government
Computers are used to keep records of the people that the government servers. Several government agencies use computers to facilitate the task they are required to the people.

Computers at Home
Computers are used at home for recreational purposes. You can listen to music, watch movies, and play games. Children use their computers at home to do their schoolwork. Parents use computers to assist them in doing their tasks. If your computer at home has internet access, then you can explore the amazing features of the internet in the comfort of your home.

Computers in manufacturing
Computer are used in manufacturing to manipulate machine that perform dangerous tasks or perform tasks that are repeatedly done.

Computers in School
Computer Education is one subject to be taught in school today.Teachers use computers in classroom instruction, in computing grades and in preparing visual aids. Students use computers to study various computer applications. Libraries are connected to the internet and students access the internet for research.

At its simplest, biotechnology is technology based on biology - biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet.
As our knowledge and capability in biotechnology increases, so do the potential benefits. However, while the intention behind new biotechnologies is to benefit society, determining what impact a particular biotechnology may have is complex.
Biotech improves crop insect resistance, enhances crop herbicide tolerance and facilitates the use of more environmentally sustainable farming practices. Biotech is helping to feed the world by:

• Generating higher crop yields with fewer inputs;
• Lowering volumes of agricultural chemicals required by crops-limiting the run-off of these products into the environment;
• Using biotech crops that need fewer applications of pesticides and that allow farmers to reduce tilling farmland;
• Developing crops with enhanced nutrition profiles that solve vitamin and nutrient deficiencies;
• Producing foods free of allergens and toxins such as mycotoxin; and
• Improving food and crop oil content to help improve cardiovascular health.

Biotechnology is helping to heal the world by harnessing nature's own toolbox and using our own genetic makeup to heal and guide lines of research by:
• Reducing rates of infectious disease;
• Saving millions of children's lives;
• Changing the odds of serious, life-threatening conditions affecting millions around the world;
• Tailoring treatments to individuals to minimize health risks and side effects;
• Creating more precise tools for disease detection; and
• Combating serious illnesses and everyday threats confronting the developing world.
