The full impact of the Industrial Revolution would not begin to be realized until about 100 years later in the 1800s, when the use of machines to replace human labor spread throughout Europe and North America.This transformation is referred to as the industrialization of the world.
In it she raised important questions about humans’ impact on nature.
For the first time, the public and industry would begin to grasp the concept of sustainable production and development.
It was the fossil fuel coal that fueled the Industrial Revolution, forever changing the way people would live and utilize energy.
While this propelled human progress to extraordinary levels, it came at extraordinary costs to our environment, and ultimately to the health of all living things.
These processes gave rise to sweeping increases in production capacity and would affect all basic human needs, including food production, medicine, housing, and clothing.
Not only did society develop the ability to have more things faster, it would be able to develop better things. The most prolific evidence of the Industrial Revolution’s impact on the modern world is seen in the worldwide human population growth.Humans have been around for about 2.2 million years.By the dawn of the first millennium AD, estimates place the total world (modern) human population at between 150 – 200 million, and 300 million in the year 1,000.It also impacted the resources that had been taken for granted for the entire prior history of humankind.There had always been more resources than the demand for them.It would take just one person in the 1960s to make the general public aware of the cause and effect of human outgrowth from the Industrial Revolution.
