We have a lot of faith in our technology. With technology, we have achieved so much...learned to fly, reach the moon, even predict the future. So many of us believe that we have no reason to be worried about the environment. We have, and we will control the environment the way it suits us. After all, that's what it is there for. And who bothers about the consequences!! Technology will save us. Aren't we the smartest living beings on the planet??
If you are one of those who believe in technology to this extent, ask yourself this one simple thing. We reached the moon, sent our satellites to space and killed each other with atomic energy. But one thing we have failed again and again. We couldn't create the basic building blocks of our life yet! Water, food and oxygen. Without the sea, the cloud and rain, we don't have any water. Without the trees for photosynthesis, we don't have any oxygen and without the world as a whole, we don't have food. Then how can we be above this environment simply because we have technology?
