When you talk about information technology , it has a significant hand in improving the status in the fields of environmental education and human health as compared to that of the other respective areas such as business, economics, and culture or politics.
Key words: science - technology - human health - developing countries. Beginning of a new century. Technological innovation is the propelling force of capitalism.
Read this article to learn about the role of information technology in environment and human health. Remote sensing technique through satellite can be used to assess ongoing changes in the environment and to predict natural calamities like droughts, floods and volcanic eruptions etc. The technique is of great use in exploring the possible availability of crude oils, mineral deposits and location of geothermal power sources. Database is the collection of inter-related data on various subjects. It is usually in computerized form and can be retrieved whenever required.
Information technology has tremendous potential in the field of environment education and health as in any other field like business, economics, politics or culture. Development of internet facilities, Geographic Information System GIS and information through satellites has generated a wealth of up-to- date information on various aspects of environment and health. A number of software have been developed for environment and health studies which are used friendly and can help an early learner in knowing and understanding the subject. Database is the collection of interrelated data on various subjects. It is usually in computerized form and can be retrieved whenever required.
Check out our interactive infographic to see progress toward the Environmental Health objectives and other Healthy People topic areas. Humans interact with the environment constantly. These interactions affect quality of life, years of healthy life lived, and health disparities. The Healthy People Environmental Health objectives focus on 6 themes, each of which highlights an element of environmental health:. Maintaining a healthy environment is central to increasing quality of life and years of healthy life. They include:. Poor environmental quality has its greatest impact on people whose health status is already at risk.

This article takes a look at the paradoxical ideology that while the impact of technology on the environment has been highly negative, the concept of environmental technology could save our planet from the harm that has been done. This idea is supported by WWF 1 , who have stated that although technology is a solution enabler it is also part of the problem. We are currently living in a period of rapid change, where technological developments are revolutionising the way we live, at the same time as leading us further into the depths of catastrophe in the form of climate change and resource scarcity. Finally it will explore the particular environmental technology of the gas sensor and discuss how it plays a part in the mitigation of negative environmental consequences. The industrial revolution has brought about new technologies with immense power.
Transportation systems, from infrastructures to vehicle operations, have environmental impacts ranging from noise, the emission of pollutants to climate change. From one side, transportation activities support increasing mobility demands for passengers and freight, while on the other, transport activities are associated with environmental impacts. Further, environmental conditions impact transportation systems in terms of operating conditions and infrastructure requirements such as construction and maintenance see Transportation and Space for a review of these constraints. The growth of passenger and freight mobility has expanded the role of transportation as a source of emission of pollutants and their multiple impacts on the environment. These impacts fall within three categories:. The complexities of the impacts have led to much controversy in environmental policy, the role of transportation, and mitigation strategies. This is made even more complex by the fact that priorities between environmental and economic considerations shift in time , which can have an impact on public policy.

Local, regional, and global environmental degradation—such as loss of biodiversity, greenhouse gas emissions, worldwide deforestation, depletion of stratospheric ozone, urban air pollution, acid rain, pollution of freshwater and the oceans, contamination of arable land and loss of topsoil and shortages of water, food, materials, and fuels in many parts of the world—are of growing international concern.
Я все. - Довольно, Грег, - тихо сказал Стратмор. Хейл крепче обхватил Сьюзан и шепнул ей на ухо: - Стратмор столкнул его вниз, клянусь .
Могу задать тебе точно такой же вопрос. Однако она отлично знала, чем занимался Хейл. Он был законченным компьютерным маньяком.
Мы упустили что-то очень важное. На экране ВР у входа толпились и множились хакеры, число их за последние минуты удвоилось. Теперь оно начало расти в геометрической прогрессии. Хакеры подобны гиенам: это одна большая семья, радостно возвещающая о любой возможности поживиться.
Нет, конечно. Я просто подумал… - Толстяк быстро убрал бумажник. - Я… я… - Совсем растерявшись, он сел на край постели и сжал руки. Кровать застонала под его весом. - Простите.
Мидж, послушай. - Он засмеялся. - Попрыгунчик - древняя история. Стратмор дал маху.
Беккер остановился, недоумевая, откуда им известно его имя. - Кто… кто вы. - Пройдемте с нами, пожалуйста. Сюда.
Она поняла: все дело в деньгах. Она перенеслась мыслями в тот вечер, когда президент Джорджтаунского университета предложил Дэвиду повышение - должность декана факультета лингвистики. Президент объяснил, что преподавательских часов будет меньше, бумажной работы больше, - но гораздо выше будет и жалованье. Сьюзан хотелось закричать: Дэвид, не соглашайся.
