Given the benefits technology has afforded us, consider the harmful consequences that time has revealed about technology. Investigate some technologies that have affected the environment. In your opinion, what technology has had a significant positive impact on the environment? What has had the most significant negative impact? Do we need to evaluate future technologies to minimize environmental risk? Should sustainability play a deciding role in future technologies? Is there a need for regulations, or can the free market better mitigate risks? Support your reasoning by providing examples and sources.
