    "Technology has made immense of progress and development. But is this really a development or not? In medical science it is so that every kind of medicine has side-effects. You try to cure your flu but you damage the liver and kidneys and digestive system. Similarly we made immense of progress in technology, everything has become faster, but we humans face now the biggest problems and challenges. The biggest threat of this world is the threat of climate change. And the cause of climate change is the human mind. We try to make everything comfortabler, faster … but the side effects are negative. Now we ask ourselves how to safe the world from pollution. Physical, social and mental pollution. Technology has its benefit but also great dangers. Atomic energy has become like a devil that threatens the whole globe. This devil to get rid of it is not easy. Many things in our world went out of our hands. We should think about the effects and side effects before we do something. Don’t think only of the momentary benefit and momentary effect that you like and that brings some support or comfort in your life. Think also on the long lasting effects and results that may be much more unpleasant and dangerous than the short enjoyment or comfort out of it."
