Scientific Progress

Scientific progress is making so many problems, huge problems and it will get worse too. All over the world there is, all the time, some drought, flood, cyclones. So the immediate cause, you can say, is the depletion of the ozone layer, or the melting of the ice at the North and South Pole. But the ultimate reason is that they are performing so many sinful activities.

No Need of Electricity
