Automobiles are an excellent example of how technology can backfire in this world. Automobiles are undeniable the greatest source of pollution. The noise pollution created by cars is immense. Another polluting effect of automobiles is the heat it creates. This heat makes it unpleasant to be near the car while it's running. In addition, the worse polluting effect of automobiles is the exhaust. The toxic fumes given off as a by-product of the combustion engine are slowly deteriorating our lungs and our atmosphere. The exhaust is extremely toxic to human beings. Automobile exhausts are polluting the atmosphere so much that the next big technological advancement should be to find a way to heal the environment. However, healing the environment sounds like a great plan except the demand for the use of automobiles, planes and trains keep rising. As the demand rises, there will be a need to find enough oil and petroleum to run these modes of transportation. Soon, there will not be enough of these resources left and there will be severe counter-effects on society if all of these ways of transportation are taken away. .
Humans take for granted these modes of transportation. Humans often live miles away from their place of business. No transportation means there is no way to get to work unless you switch to a job within walking range of your house. No transportation also means no money and eventually no food. The reliance on technologies we take for granted is also a negative effect of technology. .
Automobiles are like man's second best friend. However, every car and truck uses special types of fluids and materials to allow it to perform. The problem with all these unique materials and fluids is that they are harmful to everything. These fluids can leak into the environment, or they can be disposed of incorrectly. Fluids are essential in an automobile, like oil for the engine, transmission, brakes, and accessories.
