The Progression of Technology?

Progression of Technology – The Future of Technology – Series

Technologies in development are changing our standards and quality of

living in many areas of our lives, normally not imagined. Think of all

the daily tasks that you perform, that require some piece of technology.

Ask yourself if the absence of this technology in your device or equipment

piece existed, would it affect the performance, quality or pleasure of experience?

If the answer is “yes”, then you can understand from firsthand experience

the importance of new technology, and it’s evolving application and integration.


Security and Technology

With the new development of technology, must also be a level of security to

ensure that businesses who associate with such technology, are not just protecting

their business safety, but also, their clients or customers personal information. T

his can come in the form of certain customer service platforms or software technologies,

that have already been introduced in many industries and businesses.

Such Industries as: 


This is an important topic to touch on when discussing technology

development and advancements in business. This is because, a

huge parallel of user return, or repeat business, depends heavily

on the trust of the company in which they are doing business with.


Public Trust of Technology?

For example, if negative press should exist online about your business or

customer experience, this can destroy your production performance

and company reputation. This is an example of advanced technology,

such as the internet in this case, clashing with the public trust. Just like a

politician, bad press, if not controlled and monitored properly, can

be detrimental to online websites or ecommerce business sites,

and not to mention all the small business owners.


Online Business Types?

These types of online businesses, rely on positive user feedback to

grow their product and market reach. Consider all the online review

sites, and you will soon realize the importance

of this business ingredient.

  • Yelp 
  • Google 
  • Mapquest 
  • BBB 
  • Chamber of Commerce


Methods of Business Accountability?

There are methods of countering such negative press, which involves

accountability and business responsivity.


Business Defense?

Each case or example, may have varying factors, and require

different online tactics to negate any negative statements.

This is when you can use technology in the form of a communication channel,

to denounce or debunk any falsehoods or claims made against your business.

This is how technology integration in your business operation, can help not

only streamline the process, but provide a layer of insurance security.

This posting will cover new technologies for 2018! Since many

Americans leave to work each day in their vehicles, we decided to start with the

automotive and transportation industry.


Technology in Transporation Industry?

This industry has many new changes and technology advancements.

This only leads to newer and more functional platforms.

The first platform that will be examined,

is clean energy in the automotive and transportation industry.


Clean Energy and The Transportation

Industry Before we begin with what exactly is going on with clean energy

and auto making, let’s look at the definition of what clean

energy stands for.

Clean energy is renewable energy, without the toxic output into our environment.

Now that you have a good grasp of what clean energy is, let’s

look at how it influences in practice, with the below diagram from U.S. Energy


Information Administration?

The list below will have 5 of the most commonly used renewable energy sources.

Review them to see if your business is operating with this new clean energy system.

Below are five commonly used renewable energy channels:

  • Biomass—includes: o Wood and wood waste o Municipal solid waste o Landfill gas and biogas o Ethanol o Biodiesel 
  • Hydropower 
  • Geothermal 
  • Wind 
  • Solar

As you can see, there are many options to clean

energy resources for future use and investment.


Transportation and Clean Energy?

You can take this clean energy development information and apply

it to the actual formation of new vehicles as well. Why not, this

has become such a hot new trending market. This is in relation

to green movements, and environmental organizations, to social

media support and public support and influence.

According to UCSUSA, it is suspected that over 19 million

barrels of oil use go on daily. What does this mean to you, on a

personal and business level, if applicable? It should mean a lot to you,

since this daily level of oil consumption from Americans, costs more

than just gas money at the tank. This is the point of introduction,

where clean vehicles were introduced to the automotive marketplace.


Clean Machines?

Introduction of Clean Vehicles to American Highways – In part, clean vehicles were

made to reduce our oil dependency need from outside or foreign sources.

This can lead to reducing political struggles, where countries in high supply

of oil, are also in high supply of political conflicts, civil unrest,

and economic decline or, distribution and access.

We will not dive into the international affairs surrounding foreign politics,

as American innovation of technology is being addressed in this article

the piece, but the impact on a global scale will be noted.


Business Relationships?

However, future article references will show the foreign

or international relationship to technology and business.

This is a broad generalization since international and foreign

politics will not be examined in relationship to new advances

in technology. This topic is catered around the American related impact.

However, this is not to dismiss the importance of exploring, in further

detail with comparative analysis, international affairs in correlation to technology.

This further research and study will help to understand the technology global rat race.

This is because as countries compete to gain this advantage, so does the number of players.

As we explore the many ways it has transformed and reshaped American traditions,

from a grand scale to that of a local level.

So, join us, as we dive into more talk of technology!


Domestic Talks of Technology

This talk of technology will take us back to the soils of the United States,

as we explore the impact of removing our need from oil required

vehicles to more cleaner ones. This was to serve many purposes,

as we have explained, and cited from outside sources, UCSUSA.

To help reduce oil dependency from both national and foreign

resources, let us dissect the different layers to this infrastructure.

  • Local 
  • State 
  • National


Government Flow of Green?

Now that you see the internal framework of our government system,

let’s explore the effects of oil-producing vehicles on our economy,

health, and business. Did you know that 30 percent of US carbon dioxide emissions

and 5 percent of the worlds global pollutions, comes from our transportation system?

Where in transportation is technology revealed in certain products?

This can be seen from the below transportation systems:

  • Vehicles 
  • Airplanes
  • Autos 
  • Ships 
  • Trucks


Now, take those numbers, and figure in the direct effect this

pollution transmission is having on our environment. It can

already be seen in today’s environment, unfortunately through global warming.


Global Warming?

Global warming occurs with the rise of sea levels,

or the more frequent and more intense heat waves, felt across

certain parts of the United States. You can take this information

and address it to real life examples seen in today’s climate.

More evidence?


US: Global Warming Impact?

Climate change can be a question in the debate with some, however,

if the facts are reviewed only, without opinion, climate change can be seen

as a real, and definite event in our global system. Where can this be

witnessed, and documented for empirical proof of detection of climate change?

This can be seen with the gap reduction of temperatures

between the North Pole and those to the south.


Global Reporting?

With the winds weakening in the upper atmosphere, conditions are

being channeled in new and different ways. According to the NCDC, t

he average temperature of the air over the Arctic land, from last year,

was reported the second highest, after 2016. This temperature monitoring

has been conducted since the 1900’s, where 2016 fell into the highest

reported year from this start year. The readings and findings of this evidence

were coming back with 2.9 degrees of

Fahrenheit above the average from the years, 1981 to 2010.


Sourced Information?

This information was sourced at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Further Climate Deterioration – Further evidence of climate

deterioration is the amount of summer sea ice that exists in the Arctic.

The number has declined significantly more than 30 percent from the

past few decades as reported from several environmental agencies,

including, NCDC. The exposed open water and land, must adjust and

absorb heat, while accelerating the warming effect on the environment.

This trend, unfortunately, has been occurring more frequently and

quicker than even computer models can project.


Future Projections?

Future forecasts and predictions assume that in the next few decades,

from the time of this article writing, 2018, having an ice-free

summer around the pole, is highly likely.  – Pollution Creation – Now, oil consumption does not just

drive global warming, it also creates air pollution. In the United States, transportation

is the largest source or cause of this air pollution.

Just in the year 2013, it was reported, that half of the carbon monoxide

and nitrogen oxides, with approximately a quarter of hydrocarbons,

were contributed from that of our transportation use. Yes, us!

Transportation Use and Air Pollution


Daily Transportation?

Yes, our daily drives on the highways and freeways to report to work,

or commute for social connections, are all factors for frequency in travel

time and use. The purchase of more vehicles per household, meaning,

now Americans per household, have more vehicles, is also another

contributing factor to this increase. The increased number of vehicles

and population growths in certain metropolitan areas are being felt

and documented. This translates into increased traffic congestion,

since in many highly populated areas, like Los Angeles,

are limited to more space for highway construction.


Pollution Solving Techniques?

So, other means of reducing the vehicle use on the California highways,

for example, come in the form of carpools or rideshares.

These two alternative options for transportation can reduce

these harmful emissions being transmitted into our air from vehicle use.

In addition, carpooling and ridesharing, as other alternative commuting

practices, such as walking, can all lead to indirect positive outcomes.



For example, let’s say that you reside in a very large populated city,

San Francisco for starters. If you were to be fortunate enough to find

work within walking distance of your home, you can remove the use of

your vehicle, since you would have that of your legs. This can have

great effects not just on the reduction of gas money, but also the

health and psyche of the person. Exercise has been reported, time

and again, how beneficial it is for not just the physical aspect of the

body, but also the mental and emotional harmony it sets off with the

formation and release of human chemical compositions, naturally.


Positive Change

This positive effect will not only show along around the waistline,

but the mood of people is also reported elevated. Just think of all the

exercise and fitness programs being created out of the industry of health.

For example: 

  • Tai Chi 
  • Yoga
  • Mediation


Health Benefits of Alternative Transportation

You can definitely see all the health benefits that have

alternative transportation methods can have on not just your

budget but also your health. Let’s go even a little deeper with

the healthcare issue of pollution in our air, andthe great reason

to be concerned with progressive technological innovations

in this industry. This is because, air pollution has serious health

consequences for the public. Air pollution has been reported

to cause an increase incidence of respiratory ailments.

Some of these ailments include: 

  • Asthma 
  • Bronchitis


Progression of Technology


Bottom Line?

Now that we have looked at the individual consequences air pollution

has on the masses, let’s look at how it can affect your bottom line.

Yes, air pollution can contribute to your financial outcome,

depending on your transportation and commuting distance.
