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

1. kills animals

2. kills birds

3. destroys the land

4. cancer

5. Destroys earth

6. Loss of habitats

7. Land pollution

8. Global warming

9. Acid Rain

10. Air pollution

11. Loss of clean water

12. Loss of habitats

13. Water pollution

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

15. kills birds

16. bad for the environment 0

17. Acid Rain

18. Air Pollution

19. Primary Batteries

20. Secondary Batteries

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

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

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

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

25. Cell phones emit radiofrequency energy that emit health problems

26. destroys habitats

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

28. loss of land

29. socially affects which vehicles  you buy and why

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

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

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

33. Fossil fuel plants for electricity cause pollution

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

35. Mining Rare earth minerals are bad for the enviroment

36. Computer based landfills are harmful for the environment

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

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

39. Radiation from phones can be harmful to humans

40. Bronchitis

41. Pneumonia

42. Permanent lung damage

43. Health problems in humans

44. Harmful to forests

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

46. Releases aluminum into the soil

47. Harmful to rivers and lakes

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

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

50. Smog

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

52. Can cause permanent respiratory damage in children

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

54. Can cause birth defects in pregnant women

55. Zinc-Carbon

56. Alkaline

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

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

59. Can be disposed with normal waste

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

61. Lead-Acid Battery

62. Lithium-Ion Battery

63. Used most commonly in cars/ boats

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

65. Categorized as non-hazardous waste

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

67. Safe for landfills and incinerators

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

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