2. Pollution has been going on since the Industrial revolution. When industries were being made they operated on mostly coal. As a result of this there was an increase in products produced in factories, speed of transportation, and pollution. Pollution of the environment continues to be a problem today.
3. As a result of pollution all sorts of issues had and still are coming up. Smog from factories made water and air polluted making living conditions even worse for people in crowded industrial cities.
4. Pollution is related to both the Industrial revolution and Environmentalism. It is related to the Industrial revolution because it was during the Industrial revolution that ares began to get really polluted. It is related to Environmentalism because it is against it. Pollution helps destroy the environment so naturally it would go against Environmentalism.
5. If it were not for pollution, the world would be a much cleaner and healthier place. Pollution is causing our world to get weaker and weaker.
2. TB is an airborne disease that killed one third of Britain's population form1800- 1850. It attacks the lungs and causes coughing. TB is caused by a bacterium called Maycobacterium tuberculosis.
3. As a result of TB, millions of people died. During the industrial revolution this disease was very common because many people lived in the cramped industrial cities. The poor who caught the disease were under nourished and therefore, most often died.
4. TB is connected to both the industrial and scientific revolution. It connects to the industrial revolution because it was that time period when it most prospered as a result of poor working and living conditions. TB connects to the scientific revolution because it was during it that Louis Pasteur discovered microbe that caused the disease.
5. Our world is different in many ways because of this. If the microbe that caused the disease was never discovered during the scientific revolution ( after having killed so many during the industrial revolution), then there would be no cure for TB today.
2. The agrarian revolution was a time of discovering more efficient ways of going about tedious tasks such as farming. It laid the foundation for a bigger technological development era-the industrial revolution.
3. The agrarian revolution changed drastically changed the lives of man. New farming techniques as a result of innovative technologies created an environment where one no longer had to go round looking for food but could stay at one place to produce food. Food was more stable and as a result population increased at a faster rate than before.
4. The agrarian period connects to the Industrial Revolution because it was an event that preceded the Industrial revolution. It was a period that created the base for the industrial revolution to take place with the introduction of advanced farming techniques that changed the way the people went about their everyday lives.
The agrarian period connects to environmentalism because it was an event that began the continual development of advanced technology. The building of modern technologies led to the evolution of our contemporary society. With the development of new technologies came the damage to our environment. Inventions such as cotton gin created a more efficient method to cultivate crops. As a result less food shortages were seen leading to a healthier and increasing population. Such inventions sparked an interest for further technology that would make tedious tasks more efficient. Our society today is a result of the eager desire for more advanced technologies and now we face the consequences associated with development—environmental issues.
5. Without the Agrarian revolution, the industrial revolution could never have proceeded as it sparked the realization that more efficient methods of farming and other tasks could be conceived through technology.
2. Cholera was a major cause of death during the Industrial revolution. The disease was especially devastating as the cities became more populated and the problem worsened. Cholera was a greatly feared disease caused by contaminated water that could spread with great speed. It was hence named "King Cholera". Industrial Britain was hit by an outbreak of cholera in 1831-32, 1848-49, 1854 and 1867 due to problems such as sewage contaminating drinking water and river water as a drinking source. The effects of cholera are sudden and painful, but not necessarily fatal. In London it is thought 7000 people died of the disease in the 1831-32 outbreak.
3. The causes of cholera include the interest in how diseases spread, how to prevent disease, and how to cure disease. Cholera devastated the lives of thousands during the Industrial Revolution. Yet, the benefit of having cholera created reason to explore more about how to prevent disease.
4. Cholera connects to the industrial revolution because it occurred during the industrial revolution and was destructive due to the developments that occurred in the industrial revolution. The industrial revolution caused the evolution of a more city-centered population rather than a population concentrated in the agricultural regions. This city-centered design created the ideal design to harbor disease as it was dirty, polluted, and overcrowded.
Cholera connects to the scientific revolution because the disease inspired the creation of a vaccine and the exploration as to the causes of disease. As the disease of cholera was realized as a serious issue during the industrial revolution, modern thinkers attempted to uncover the reasons for its rapid spread. The scientific revolution was a time of exploration in physics, astronomy, biology, human anatomy, and chemistry. The interest in cholera falls under the category of the scientific revolution as it was an issue affecting the human race and was explored with a scientific eye.
5. If cholera had never occurred, the design of cities today would have been much different and dangerous. But because modern thinkers explored how to prevent further devastation by cholera, the city became remodeled. Such reconstruction included that a clean-up of local sewers in London.
2. Transportation advances during the industrial revolution created the path to which many more developments could arrive. With such proceeds, inventors continued to work throughout the rest of the 19th and early 20th century on ways to make life easier while increasing productivity. Transportation allowed good to be transported from country to country with ease. Profits increased as a result of successful trading, leading to a stronger economy in the United States.
3. Transportation during the industrial revolution had negative and positive results on society. The emissions from machines such as the steam boat and train damaged the environment and we now have to take major precaution to monitor the health of our planet. The positive effects of transportation was the development of the great and prosperous country the United States is today. The ability to trade with other countries with ease because of efficient transportation aided the US to draw in income and activate the economy.
4. Transportation is connected to the industrial revolution because of the many innovations that came with the event to create more efficient transportation. Innovations such as railroads were a large part of the industrial revolution providing a means for further developments by making the transportation of goods and people more convenient. The steamboat also contributed, making New York a major trading center (the beginning of what New York is like today) hence a revolution in industry.
Transportation is connected to environmentalism because of the negative consequences associated with the development. The pollution contributed by trains, steamboats, and later cars was initially not considered, but we now realize the damage such technologies have created. Emission from these innovations are toxic to our environment and we are just now limiting our pollution to the planet.
5. Our world today is different because the evolution with transportation provided a means to interact with other countries with ease, and interact within the country as well. With trains and steamboats, goods could be transported from country to country. The steamboat contributed in making New York the advanced city it is today by first transforming it into a major trading center. Such great advances set the stage for inventions such as the light bulb (Thomas Edison), telephone (Alexander Bell), and the automobile (Karl Benz). Ford's creation of the assembly line, which made manufacturing more efficient helped form America into a modern industrialized nation.
2. Hygiene during the industrial revolution was very poor. Sewage and waste was dumped on the streets. Leftover food from the table was thrown out ht e window for roaming animals, like hogs, to eat. Nobody washed there hands and nobody used a fork to eat, so disease was easily spread.
3. As a result of there being no hygiene many people caught diseases, such as typhoid, smallpox, cholera, and many others, and died. Cities all ways smell foul because of sewage on the streets. Food and water was often contaminated with filth.
4. Hygiene relates to both the Industrial and the Scientific revolution. It relates to the Industrial revolution because it was during it that hygiene reached an all time low. As the population in industrial cities went up, homes started to be made quick and carelessly. As a result of this, homes had no sewage system and waste was thrown on to the street. Hygiene relates to the scientific revolution because it was during it that hygiene began to be thought of. During the Scientific revolution the germ theory of disease raised awareness about public health. People, such as, Edward Jenner, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Ignaz Semmelweiss, Florence Nightingale, and many others, changed everyday hygiene forever.
5. If it were not for these advancements we would still be living and dying in our own filth. Our life expectancy would be way down and there wouldn't be a sweet smelling place.
2. Before the Industrial revolution the metal industry ran on renewable resources like wood. Eventually fossil fuels, like coal were used to to carry out metallurgy.
3. As a result of metallurgy weapons, cookware, and other metal products were able to be produced. Also a great deal of our fossil fuels were used up. As the demand for metal products increased, so did the amount of pollution that was done. This is the result of the burning of coal and other fossil fuels.
4. Metallurgy relates to both the Industrial and the Environmentalism. It relates to the Industrial revolution because it was during the industrial revolution that the metal industry was very prosperous. It relates to Environmentalism because it was bad for the environment. The burning of fossil fuels pollutes and depletes non renewable resources.
5. If it were not for metallurgy the world would not have been able to produce the metal products that we have today.Also there would be less pollution if it had not existed.
2. Animal testing has been going on all through the history of science. The Greeks were the first to test on animals, but they were followed by several others. Animals were and are being used to test products for human use, and for anatomy purposes.
3. As a result of animal testing their have been worldwide protests opposing it. Animal testing is reported to be cruel and brutal for the animals. Although many are adverse to animal testing, it allows products for humans to be tested first to prevent any injury that might occur while using those products. Also, it gives humans knowledge about the biological process that go on in different types of animals.
4. Animal testing is connected to both the Scientific revolution and Environmentalism. It connects to the Scientific revolution because animals were used for testing during the Scientific revolution. It connects to Environmentalism because it is against Environmentalism to take animals out of the environment and be cruel to them.
5. If it were not for this connection then the world would not have all the protests against animal testing that we have today. Also, we would not have all the people safe products that we have today.
