Are transhumanist technologies environmentally sound?

Of course there will always be rough patches where technology fails and things go wrong but that is the case in any complex system that changes rapidly over time and certainly is not exclusive to transhumanism.

Anthropology: Man is a highly complex bio-machine that is destined for deterioration. Man, in this stage of evolution, is naturally limited physically and intellectually by his physiological and genetic properties. Due to his mechanical properties, man can be chemically manipulated through technology to improve the human condition, to surpass human limitation, and to escape deterioration.

Transhumanism - Research Paper - Colton-Cathey

If we narrow the definition by adding the requirement that a transhumanist telos be coupled to a notion of the centrality of technological means, we get a different set of paradigmatic examples. The Frankenstein myth (based originally on the novel by Mary Shelly published in 1831, and elaborated in countless forms since then) is one classic, and in general science fiction has been the genre most intensely preoccupied with transhumanist themes, reaching back to Jules Verne and Karel Čapek, through Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, Stanislav Lem, Arthur C. Clark, on to Vernor Vinge, Bruce Sterling, James Halperin, Greg Egan, and many others in the field of science ficiton. Many of these author’s stories have been adapted for the screen. (The Star Trek series features cool new technology but the same old humans, so it is not a very paradigmatic exemplar of transhumanist art.) Yet this in and of itself is a narrowing of the board and explorative scope of transhumanist arts. For example, Buckminster Fuller's architectural understanding of the world and society, the "maker", "quantified self", and "DIY" cultures all reflect initiatives of transhumanist art because the key is to solve problems through creative endeavors. In this regard, the field of design is consequential, and equal to, if not more than, science fiction.
