Best Answer

The industrial revolution and the use of fossil fuels has, as an example , allowed us to cut down forests rapidly, deplete fish stocks, pollute the air and waterways, and all these things threaten biodiversity. But , technology can also help us turn the corner and repair the damage being done by our use of non-renewable energy. For instance, computers and satellites are helping scientists to understand how human activity is affecting the planet, and technology has found ways of harnessing renewable energy, and growing food more efficiently. The internet has hightened environmental awareness , and the importance of maintaining biodiversity.
