Some people say that advanced technology HAS solved poverty, which is one of the root causes of conflicts. However, I think that modern technology that causes population growth, climate change and globalization will make The world poorer and head towards another global conflicts. Let me explain three reasons.
The first reason is rapid population growth. The world’s population will reach around 10 billion by 2050. Our planet cannot sustain such a great number of people. In the future, a lot of people, especially in developing countries, will be suffering from starvation. People tend to be violent in such harsh conditions. That will eventually cause conflicts.
The second reason is climate change. Because of global warming, The world’s temperature will continue to increase. Then, we will experience extreme weather such as drought and floods. Farms will become barren wastes. As a result, the global food supply is likely to diminish. These food shortages aggravate the situation of suffering from population growth.
The third reason is globalization. The world becomes connected due to globalization. People can easily move to other countries. This will lead to the situation where many people of different races and cultures live together. In this circumstance, there will be a lot of discrimination against minorities. Terrorism related to discrimination might increase.
For the three reasons mentioned above, I can say with confidence that the world heading towards another global conflict. 232字
