    I think the invention of computers has helped the environment in a number of ways. The most direct way that computers have been beneficial is by allowing an ever-growing list of things to be done online. This actually has huge impacts because it reduces paper waste and possibly also gas usage as not everything has to be delivered physically (even in the case of online shopping, it is more efficient to have a single delivery truck dropping items off than to have each individual person driving to the mall to buy their items). More indirectly, but no less important, computers have allowed scientists to understand the environment much better through computer modeling and data analysis – all of which are very difficult, if not impossible, to do by hand alone.
