From given statements we can conclude that the amount of electronic waste is increasing. Now, when we know this we can draw a conclusion about it. The number of produced gadgets is growing, so the usage of materials we need to produce them is rising. That means that we will be left with small amounts of these materials which we need in our everyday life.
That further means that we would not be able to continue with our regular life. This happens because people often become addicts on technology. They put everything and everyone else aside and they want every new gadget that came out. When they get that gadget they throw away “old” ones, and they end up on landfills instead of being recycled. That is another reason we have problems with electronic waste.New technologies take the formation of recent production process and quality goods and services.
Research and development are important types of contribution to upgrade technology. Technology diffusion is mostly the consequence of adoption. Intensification of technology arises from personal adoption choice. The best and the easiest way we can think about technology is probably monitoring is certain technology present in specific country in that moment. While reading the article from National Bureau Of Economic Research I found out that every country had its own system of measuring country-level technology adoption until the beginning of 20th century. Regularly, this cross-country income was relatively small, until industrial revolution.
In the past technologies were classified in five sectors: industry, agriculture, communication, transportation and military. The data set per each technology has been measured according to if they are existent in that country or not. Europe and Asia were the continents with highest levels of technology adoption, while America and Oceania had the lowest.
We can say that technology is as old as humankind.We always had some kinds of technology, for example people in ancient history needed to survive and they managed it with help of technology. They used different kinds of weapons (stone spear, fire, copper ax..
.). At that moment in time they could not imagine all the things you can do using technology. The first complex inventions within the technology could afford only wealthy people, that’s why there were not many productions produced. Therefore, there was no problem of electronic waste axe technological dependence.
However, scientists came up with new inventions and old ones would become less valuable and then poorer people could afford it. This development brought us some positive and some negative changes. First of all every technological path will twist and turn and we can not predict consequences or see through the fog. That’s why we ended up like this, with some consequences that affected our lives drastically. For instance, the occurrence of factories influenced the occurrence of humongous global issues such as holes in the Ozone layer, The greenhouse effect, huge pollution of air, water and soil…
On the other hand, the occurrence of factories helped us in our everyday life, because factories produce some products and foodstuffs that we need nowadays such as home appliances, canned food for humans and animals, auxiliary medical devices, security devices, etc.Global PerspectiveThe increased use of technology brought us to some serious global problems. We have to deal with big ecological problems. The greenhouse effect, holes in Ozone layer, pollution of air are just some of the consequences that resulted from increased use of technology.
In 1980. government detected ozone holes. There is one international treaty which is designed to protect the Ozone layer. “The greenhouse effect, holes in Ozone layer, pollution of air are just some of the consequences that resulted from increased use of technology.”There are many solutions for this problem, but first, people need to be as informed as possible.
Than, we need to observe every situation. Some solutions that are possible are: using more solar energy instead of fuels and gases that increase pollution of air, water and soil, less electronic waste- more recycling, planting trees (it provides oxygen), use of biodegradable materials for the production of consumer goods, taking care of endangered plant and animal species, etc.
