1. Since the Industrial Revolution, our environment has been in imminent danger. For example, a dramatic summer drought helped public focus their attentions on the greenhouse effect, a general warming of temperature on the Earth, which is caused by an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide released by burning fossil fuels like coals, gasoline products, and rapid deforestation.
2. Along with the rapid technology advance is the emergence of acid rain, ecological wasteland, and natural disasters, such as flood and hurricane.
3. Not only to environment, but also to some people, changes in today’s seemingly progressive world are not always good. The booming America saw a growing economic inequality.
4. In a culture where emails, cell phones, and Internet chat room have become everyday modes of communication, we are on the verge of breaking down all barriers to the complete and constant transfer of information.
5. But if we seem to be moving toward unfetter union, we could also be seen more isolated as individuals than we have ever been before.
6. Changes in technology definitely make our lives easier, as shopping at home becomes easier than driving to the store, as meeting people online eliminates the need to spend a lot of time traveling, and as faxing someone a blueprint gets rid of necessity of meeting to disscuss a plan.
7. However, the very techonology that purports to make connections and bring people closer together is helping them drift apart.
