Science has revolutionized out way of living. We cannot say for certain whether science is a curse or a fruit of blessing. It is science that had provided modern man the life of ease, leisure and pleasure. It has brought in reach of the common man comforts and luxuries that were available in the past only to few. Science had invented marvelous machines. People and things, news and views can go around the globe today with lightning speed. Men has already landed on the moon and a human-made satellite that goes through the solar system gives us more information about other solar planets. Our lives have become healthier and longer. Modern hygiene, sanitation, medicine and surgery are conquering more and more physical and mental illnesses each day. Science also has figured out a way to clone animals and genetically modify the organisms and food, as well.
Science and technology may be partly responsible for many of the problems that face us today. The problems are the advancement of weapons, bombs, biochemical and nuclear weapon, which brought us violence amongst ourselves and others. Another problem is human dependences on technology, such as the internet, computers, cell phones etc. Yet one of the biggest problems is pollution. Three types of pollution that dominate; they are water, air and noise pollution.
Water is one of the several resources that we need most, many people can survive without food for several weeks but they cannot survive without water for less then a week. The advancement of science and technology causes much water pollution, such as dumping toxic waste into rivers, ponds, oceans, and even small creeks. For example, many Third World countries that are trying to get their country industrialized lack the funds to dispose of their wastes probably. But instead, they dump their toxic pollutants into surrounding bodies of water. All of the toxins that they dump, can be washed out into the rivers, seas, or oceans
