World Environment Day Special: Know How The Latest Technology Is Helping Environment

World Environment Day is a reminder that we should do "whatever it takes" to protect the Earth. Because, there's literally no planet B. 

Alan M Eddision once remarked, “Modern technology owes ecology an apology”. Well, it's the technological advancement that has done enormous damage to the environment, from air pollution to plastic waste to climate change and more. However, it's essential to acknowledge that technology also has the solution to various environmental issues, promising to protect the planet and lead to a sustainable future. Several latest technologies are currently being used across the globe that promote development without causing harm to Mother Earth. Additionally, there have been various innovations that help the environment as well. 

The entire world is observing Environment Day today. On this special occasion, let's understand how the latest technology is helping the environment, and what's awaiting ahead. 

The Renewable Energy Technologies

Renewable energy technologies have emerged as a revolutionary force against climate change. Whether it's solar power, hydroelectric, or geothermal energy, it does make a positive difference in the environment and how! Unlike fossil fuels, it generates no greenhouse gas, contributing to better air quality. On the other hand, it requires very little amount (in some cases, zero) of water for operation. 

As studies have shown, using renewable energy instead of traditional energy helps protect biodiversity to a huge extent. 


Water (oceans, rivers, and others) makes up about 70% of the Earth. Due to various human activities, water pollution is a huge problem in today's world, posing a significant threat to the environment. Here comes the Seabin technology that helps clean up our waterways.  

Well, Seabin is a small gadget that works as a floating garbage collector. It needs to be placed on the surface of the water, and then it collects whatever waste comes its way. It traps everything from plastic to oil to bags and more. And it's powered by clean energy, hence it's quite eco-friendly as well. 

Electric Vehicles

As people become more aware of the environmental damage, electric vehicles are getting more and more attention these days. Unlike traditional vehicles that rely on fossil fuels, electric vehicles run on electricity and hence don't produce carbon emissions. So, by switching to EVs, we can help improve the air quality to a great extent. And EVs produce less noise as well, contributing to reduced noise pollution in the long run. 

It's worth noting that India has made significant progress in recent times in terms of implementing electric vehicles on the road. 

Artificial Intelligence 

The impact of artificial intelligence is evident almost everywhere, and the environment is no exception at all. Several AI-driven tools are now being used to track the movements and lifestyle of wildlife, helping to protect various vulnerable wildlife species. Scientists from across the globe are using artificial intelligence to assess the climate system, and further developing strategies to tackle climate change. Moreover, AI-powered agricultural systems are getting more attention these days, which is way more sustainable than the traditional agricultural system. 

So, let's hope for a more sustainable future where technology goes hand in hand with environmental preservation.
