      I don’t think, personally, not directly at least. It is much more of a worry to humankind if we keep consuming beyond the resources of our planet, and end up making it a place we can no longer live in… I do think we are much more likely to put our future in danger through not respecting and not protecting our environment. In fact, there are already examples that this is the case, so it is up to all of us to stop it getting any worse…

      I agree with Isabel! I also think that we can be smart and responsible and use electronics and technology in a way that helps us improve the way we live and take care of our planet. For example we have been able to make light bulbs that need less energy to function, and are now trying to make cars that are environmentally friendly widely used.
