1- The Death of Thought due to Technology
Our resources are not endless. Our environment is dying because of human activities. Some people say that due to limited resources and an environment that is changing for the worse, humans need to make bold technological decisions to survive. I disagree with this statement because I want to develop ideas to live on, not technology. We are developing technology unconsciously and the environment is being damaged but we can find new solutions. For example, we need to limit pollution by using solar power. This could mean that we need to improve our thoughts to limit pollution by using natural resources such as solar energy and I think technology is not necessary to do this.
2- Due to limited resources and an environment that is changing for the worse, humans need to make bold technological decisions to survive. I agree with this statement because the world’s population is increasing from day to day. We need to find new places. There seem to be major problems with our current home, the Earth. We are destroying our planet. This could mean that environmental damage cannot be repaired. Maybe, we should develop a spacecraft and move to new planets. Perhaps, this is the answer to our problem to start everything again with new technologies.

3- Due to limited resources and an environment that is changing for the worse, humans need to make bold technological decisions to survive. I agree with this statement. The global warming appears to affect people’s life. We could prevent global warming. First, we should use natural energy sources and we can use them efficiently with the help of technology. Secondly, some surveys show that freshwater resources are decreasing. We could get fresh water with the help of technology. For example, we can get potable water from salt water thanks to devices used for distillation and desalination.
