The Industrial Revolution The Industrial Revolution is the name given to the movement in which machines changed people's way of life as well as their methods of manufacturer. It brought three important changes: inventions of machines that simplify and speed up the work of hand tools, use of steam (and other power) versus human power, adoption of a factory system. Workers were brought together under one roof and were supplied machines. The Industrial Revolution began throughout the world relatively during the same time period, and although it had its beginning in remote times, it is still continuing in some places.
Environment vs. Industrial Revolution When you hear the industrial revolution, you may think that it was good. Well, when thinking about only certain parts of the impacts it had on things like family, economy, environment, North, South, and West, you start to see that not all of them had a positive effect on certain aspects. Today, I will be talking about how the industrial revolution impacted the environment. The industrial revolution did not have a positive impact on the environment. For example, it caused an increase in pollution, a decrease of fossil fuel, and depletion of natural resources.
The industrial revolution began in the 17th century and made significant change in the world. An era was over and the new one was beginning. The revolution has advantages and disadvantages. Rising of living standards, improving of health, lifetime and trade system are its advantages. On the other hand, manufacturing has caused major problems such as deforestation, excessive use of fossil fuel sources, irresponsible industrialisation and agricultural development. These changes have increased world’s atmospheric concentration of water vapour, CO2, CH4 and other gases (Stocker, 2013). These gases capture part of energy receiving from sun and trap this heat inside atmosphere that causes rising temperatures on the earth’s surface. Naturally, for continuation of life these gases are necessary, but result of the human events these gases has produced more than plants and environment need (Robins, 2016). Also, we call them Green Houses Gases because they have the similar effect like the ‘greenhouses’ utilised to increase condition of vegetables.
1760, that was the day machines began to run Manchester, then the rest of the world. The shift from hand field labor to artificial labor done by machines is what we like to call the Industrial Revolution. Which is the reason why we have many of the electronics we do today. Inventors, machinist, tinkers, and engineers had the world at their fingertips. While the Industrial Revolution had may positive impacts, it had disastrous effects on all people working there and living around the factories.
Chapter 12: 1. The industrial revolution was ignited with the creation of the cotton gin, which led to cotton becoming a controller of the national economy, as it tied the manufacturers in the North to the cotton farmers in the South, the revolution also began out of the invention of the plow, which made farming easier and more efficient, overall inventions led America into a capitalist marketplace that traded with the rest of the world.

The Industrial Revolution became a defining transitional period in United States history. The Industrial Revolution created opportunities for society through, employment, higher pay and allowed for the meeting of many cultures. As a result of high employment opportunities, people flocked to the North and populated areas of the nation creating urban cities. Urban cities of the nation have not changed much since the Industrial Revolution; people are still drawn to the urban culture because of the variety in social and economic opportunities.

The Industrial Revolution During the 1800's, phenomenal changes took place in America. These changes would impact our society incredibly for years to come and even still in the present.

Child labor during the Industrial Revolution was horrid. The Industrial Revolution started in the late 18th century and ended around the mid 19th century. Although we did benefit from this industrial age, many people suffered, most notably children, because of this advancement. In today's standards, what these children went through was repulsive. It is worse to think that this kind of treatment lasted for over 100 years in some places and that it, not only just happened in one part of the world but in multiple parts of the world. One of the worst places that children had to work in were the mines. The kind of work the children in the coal mines had to do was not only dangerous but unsanitary and unhealthy as well.
Lixia Ma Professor Nguyen His 1003 Oct. 1, 2014 Film Review #1 Prompt: What was revolutionary about the Industrial Revolution? The Industrial Revolution was a period of time during the 18th century in which the hand tools were transformed to machine manufacturing in term of mass production. People took the ideas from Enlightenment and destroyed the old order of federalism in society. As a result, the Industrial Revolution brought new changes economically, politically, and socially. New transportation method was developed and the standard of living raised as well. However, on the other hand, the Industrial Revolution was also detriment to the society by creating bad working conditions, causing pollutions, and the occurring of diseases.
The Industrial Revolution that occurred in the late Nineteenth Century brought many new jobs that were drastically different to the jobs that previous Americans held. While agricultural jobs still existed and were vitally important to the sustainability of the American economy, the new factory jobs that opened up created many new work opportunities for Americans and immigrants who came from Europe. However, the problem with all these new industrial jobs was that they had very poor working conditions and the work hours were long and unfair. This along with the low wages made these jobs undesirable. Despite this, immigrant workers continued to work under these conditions because they had nowhere else to obtain work and quitting would make it almost impossible for them to find a job somewhere else with better working conditions and wages. The result of the low wages meant that many immigrants living on the East Coast of the United States lived below the poverty line. There was a fundamental problem with the working and living conditions the immigrants were experiencing. Two political organizations of this era sought to fix this problem with two contrasting methods. The Progressive Reformers were a political organization that sought out to set permanent fixes to these conditions and make it possible for the immigrants to be self-sustaining. On the other hand, the political machines, more specifically Tammany Hall of Manhattan, sought to make changes by directly helping the
Imagine this, a farmer is trying to make ends meet with the little resources that he has. The farmer only has broad daylight, two hands, tools, and fertile soil. However, even though the farmer has determination to make vast production, time waits for noone.What happens when the sun goes down, when the farmer’s hands begin to blister, maybe the farmer will become dehydrated and will have to stop production? There’s a famous quote that states “time is money,”which before the Industrial Revolution was admittedly true. Merchants could not spare a second because time could not afford to be wasted. Furthermore, during the rise of the Industrial Revolution, which took place during the18th and 19th century, merchants were eleiviated of the burden of meager income, malnutrition, and etc. Which of course sounds great, who wouldn’t want a huge weight to be lifted off their shoulders? However, although author Kevin Shultz in his work HIST3 gives great detail as to how the emersion of the “Wild West” brought along some of our favorite cowboy stories and the increase in production ratings, Shultz fails to acknowledge how the Industrial Revolution negatively affected the Native Americans and the Chinese.Thus, the downside of the Industrial Revolution will be critically analyzed in accordance from Chief Red Cloud’s speech, as well as and *put other author* and their work *put title of work*
Think about your life for one second: you communicate with people, travel, make purchases, and utilize those commodities. But have you ever wondered what made those things possible? After all, you go to the store to buy things you need. You drive a car to work and to visit your
The Industrial Revolution was the quintessence of capitalistic ideals; it bred controversy that led to Karl Marx’s idea of communism as a massive grass roots reaction to the revolution’s social abuses. Firstly, the Industrial Revolution featured the construction of machines, systems and factories that allowed goods to be manufactured at a faster rate with a lower cost. The seed drill made it so there could be “a semi-automated, controlled distribution and plantation of wheat seed”(Jones 2013). Secondly, there was a great social and economic divide between the wealthy owners and the poor workers, which gave rise to the mass’s vulnerability to the advent of extreme socialism. Figures of authority severely oppressed their employees by giving them insufficient pay, a treacherous work environment, and even making some children work more than 12 hours per day (Cranny 150). Finally, far right capitalism created a brutal boom and bust cycle of economics that made, for the multitude at the bottom, a perpetual nightmare of poverty and death. People responded to this social situation by taking part in violent protests; oppression sires rebellion. The Industrial Revolution was the chassis of great imagination and progress of political, economic, and social force that still affects this world today.
We are standing at the precipice of what some call the 4th Industrial Revolution. The 4th Industrial Revolution is being described as a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. We are rapidly moving to an era where billions of people will be connected by mobile devices with unprecedented processing power and storage capacity. Our access to knowledge will be unlimited.
