With the rapid development of the modern science and technology,we are enjoying the convenience which used to be in our dreams.Everybody knows that the cell phones, computers, internet,credit cards,airplanes,subways and so on have brought us a modern life which makes us much more comfortable,convenient and relaxed. But gradually,more and more people begin to realize that such kind of easy-going life,perhaps,is doing great harm to our environment and our health as well.Nowadays,we have to admit that we have had many nameless diseases which have been brought by the modern science. You cannot deny the air pollution,land reduction,north pole melting and the animals perishing must have something to do with the pursuing of our human modern life. Therefore,how to protect the environment and the human being itself are becoming an urgent problem for the whole human being.
Science and technology have been bringing human beings tremendous benefits. Thanks to science and technology, we now live comfortably and conveniently in houses furnished with air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines and televisions etc. Thanks to science and technology, we can eat fresh vegetables at the year round. Thanks to science and technology, we can travel long distances in the fraction of a second on planes, trains and cars. Thanks to science and technology, we wear clothes with synthetic materials which can not easily be worn out.
However, science and technology have atso brought us a lot of disasters. First, because of the many breakthroughs in the field of medicine, people are now living much longer than they used to. As a result, the population of the world is increasing, causing lots of problems. Second, because of the development of industry, lots of the wastes from factories pour into the air and rivers, causing pollution of all kinds. Third, some terrorists are using science and technology against mankind. They use biological, chemical and unclear weapons to threaten world peace...
So it's urgent that we find ways to solve these problems. But we should not stop the development of science and technology because of these disasters they bring, just as we should not give up eating for fear of choking. In addition, we should make some rules to regulate our actions. As long as we use science and technology in a proper way, they may bring us even more benefits.
In the modern time, the growth of technology is increasingly developed. More and more people don’t use their brains when there is no need to use other instruments. Too much people use technology so that people are lazier and less healthy than before. They rely on technology too much.
Some believe that modern technology shorten the distance of human. For instance, people all use cellphone to call friends or family, or computer to search information, or use QQ, MSN, twitter, blog etc. These modern instruments shorten the distance between human.
However, others think that it’s just the reverse. Technology makes people use less face-to-face communication. The contact in real life is less and less. People do less interaction to each other. In the long term, people will get depressed without enough communication.
As far as I’m concerned, modern technology provides convenience to people. It makes people easily to get information. Only could we use it correctly, it does much contribution to us.
