This topic is one that gets both sides upset.
One hand hand the argument can be made that technological without increasing levels of pollutants in the environment through the use of sustainable and eco-friendly practices. For example, renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power can be utilized instead of fossil fuels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling and reusing materials can also help reduce waste and pollution.
The other side will point out some technological advances may result in an increase in pollutants in the short term. For example, the production of electric vehicles requires the use of rare earth minerals that can have negative environmental impacts if not properly managed. Therefore, it is important to consider the long-term environmental impact of new technologies and work towards minimizing negative effects.
Cobalt mining is known to be a challenging and hazardous industry, and there have been reports of unethical practices, including the use of child labor and unsafe working conditions in some cobalt mines.
On one hand, it is important to prioritize the health and well-being of both humans and the environment. On the other hand, businesses may argue that regulations and restrictions can hinder their growth and competitiveness.
