"detriment of the Earth" makes no sense[edit]

The third paragraph of the opening blurb says: "Many technological processes produce unwanted by-products, known as pollution, and deplete natural resources, to the detriment of the Earth and its environment" It should be "to the detriment of Earth's environment", as it doesn't affect the Earth itself one iota. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.26.236.107 (talk) 11:18, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

German language version[edit]

In German "Technologie" refers to the study or science of technology, not to technology itself. The German term is "Technik". This is also supported by the content of the respective articles. Since this one is locked, please someone do the respective edit. Thanks, 193.197.171.98 (talk) 12:52, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but it looks to me like the article already says "Technik". What exactly are you wanting changed? -- Fyrael (talk) 16:02, 28 August 2013 (UTC)

You're right, I did not realize first. Thanks, 193.197.171.98 (talk) 12:04, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Caption[edit]

There is a caption that says "Antoine Lavoisier conducting an experiment with combustion generated by amplified sun light". But I wouldn't call it 'amplified', I'd say 'concentrated' or 'focused'. RJFJR (talk) 20:19, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
