Technology and Social Issues by Mind Map: Technology and Social Issues

1. destroys the land

2. kills birds

3. bad for the environment 0

4. Acid Rain

5. Air Pollution

6. Primary Batteries

7. Secondary Batteries

8. as the logging industry gets better more Animals lose their habitats

9. loss of land

10. Fossil fuel plants for electricity cause pollution

11. Batteries are difficult to dispose of and bad for the environment

12. Computer based landfills are harmful for the environment

13. Light pollution from tall buildings disrupt wildlife and often kill birds

14. Technological advances in the logging industry has made it easier for animals to lose their habitats

15. Bronchitis

16. Pneumonia

17. Permanent lung damage

18. Health problems in humans

19. Harmful to forests

20. Dissolves nutrients such as magnesium or calcium that trees need

21. Releases aluminum into the soil

22. Harmful to rivers and lakes

23. Causes lakes/rivers to have lower pH levels than normal

24. Can kill aquatic life such as frogs, some species of bass, and some species of trout

25. Smog

26. Contains ozone, which can cause breathing problems, especially in people with existing conditions (asthma)

27. Can cause permanent respiratory damage in children

28. WHO says "air pollution is the world's largest environmental health risk

29. Can cause birth defects in pregnant women

30. Zinc-Carbon

31. Alkaline

32. Can not be discarded with normal waste, and is rarely recycled

33. In the EU, stores that sell these batteries must accept them back to be recycled

34. Can be disposed with normal waste

35. EU countries must recycle at least 50% of all alkaline batteries in 2016

36. Lead-Acid Battery

37. Used most commonly in cars/ boats

38. In the US, 99% of lead-acid batteries were recycled this year

39. Safe for landfills and incinerators

40. kills animals

41. kills birds

42. cancer

43. Destroys earth

44. Loss of habitats

45. Land pollution

46. Global warming

47. Acid Rain

48. Air pollution

49. Loss of clean water

50. Loss of habitats

51. Water pollution

52. socially effects what type of transportation you would choose (biking, public transit).

53. A solution is to decommission and recycle before throwing them out

54. socially effects which of these technologies you would buy.

55. Taking these resources depletes our natural supplies. Most of which are irreplaceable.

56. Mining effects the surrounding ecosystems causing erosion, sinkholes and contamination of soil, groundwater and surface water by chemicals.

57. Cell phones emit radiofrequency energy that emit health problems

58. destroys habitats

59. socially affects which vehicles  you buy and why

60. A solution to this problem is using electric cars   which emit less carbon emissions

61. Certain technologies emit carbon emissions when used.(cars)

62. Certain technology has harmful ingredients that when thrown away can leak into the ground and watersheds

63. Mining Rare earth minerals are bad for the enviroment

64. Radiation from phones can be harmful to humans

65. Lithium-Ion Battery

66. Categorized as non-hazardous waste

67. Can be recycled, but low yield and high cost makes recycling li-ion batteries not popular

68. Used in portable electronics, and are often recalled (Note 7)

69. Manufacturing technology also requires a lot of fossil fuels and water
