Do you think technology cause global warming ?

Asked by: stephannoi
  • Yeah, that's kind of obvious.

    Technology can both increase and reduce global warming. It largely depends on which kinds of tech you're talking about. Wind power, solar power, vertical farming, tidal power, geothermal power, energy-saving appliances, etc. help to reduce global warming. However, HFCs, CFCs, nitrate fertilisers, coal extraction, oil extraction, natural gas extraction, nylon, etc. are all technologies, albeit earlier ones. These technologies were the causes of global warming.

  • Well, duh, how else?

    The term "technology" is too wide; yes technological advances in all sorts of things including agricultural sciences, specifically livestock, contribute to the problem. I think you mean "machinery" and specifically types of machinery. By the way those machines, when operated properly, do produce the carbon (eh, more complicated then that) causing the problem so yes it is the technology and no it's not humans. Humans don't have exhaust pipes.

  • Second LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS

    Although more sustainable means of acquiring energy can save us in the future from global warming, massive development of technology causes more entropy (Simplification and transformation of the available and limited energy on Earth). According to the second Law of thermodynamics, more technology requires more transformation of energy and simplification. And more simplification of energy won't save the Planet. In order to save ourselves from Global Warming, our average energy consumption must decrease. We need to stop decreasing

  • Coal-fired power plants, vehicle exhaust, deforestation, agricultural burns, wars, etc. at going to kill us all.

    The greedy nature of large corporations make it impossible for them to accept their responsibility. With the earth's continued population growth, there is a corresponding demand for all the factors contributing to said warming: coal-fired power plants, deforestation, vehicle exhaust (land, water, and air), agricultural burns, wars (the military industrial complex), concrete, asphalt, etc. It only stands to reason that given the fact that the earth's atmosphere is a finite commodity, and the people of earth keep producing more and more pollution, there is no way that we are not destroying it.

  • Yes it does

    Tech releases a lot of electricity. Wasting electricity causes a lot of problems releasing bad air. Everyone uses tech these days. I am not saying we should not have tech at all because that might cause a lot of sadness. However, we should lessen the use of the technology now.

  • Technology does cause global warming

    We all are Technosavvy !!! And we all know that technology changes everyday and most of the parts in technology are non recyclable and also they do not get decomposed easily ..... So that creates a lot of mess which disturbs the environment a lot so yes it will cause a lot of global warming .

  • Stop blaming on technology !!!

    Global warming comes from human activities and that has nothing to do with technology.Actually technology helps to reduce global warming because we can invent new things that is environmentally friendly.It's actually human fault.Human create global warming because they are greedy,selfish,and lack of concern.Also human cut so many rainforest away.IT HUMAN FAULT.

Sure.. But it's going to save us from global warming as well.
