1. Nuclear power 2. Nuclear power is produced by heating up water using heat from nuclear reactions of unstable elements, the difference between nuclear power and steam power is that nuclear power uses ustable elements while steam power gets its heat from burning fossil fuels. While nuclear power is cleaner then steam power it has other effects. If someone were to be exposed to the nuclear radiation unprotected the results could be fatal. Nuclear power provides 6% of the worlds power. 3. AS people became warry of the effects of burning fossil fuels they sought an alternative source fo power to try to decrease the carbon footprint bieng left behind by us. Nuclear power was seen as the aswer as it does not produce as much carbon dioxide as burning fossil fuels does. Although nuclear power is clear it is also hazardous to our health as it emits radiation. A perfect example of this would be in Jappan as the earthquake that hit them caused several nuclear reactors to fail and there is now a fear of neuclear radiation spreading. 4. This connects the scientific revolution and environmentalism. The scientific revolution promoted scientific and logical thought instead of religion and throught that came the development of physics, chemistry, and biology and evidently nuclear power. Nuclear power does not leave a carbon footprint as heavy as buring fossil fuels does but it still does leaves some carbon footprint and releases poison radiation. 5. If it wasn’t for the nuclear power some places like chyrnoble and Japan would not have such problems even though it is slightly more environmentally friendly
1. The internal combustion engine 2. Although it is highly debated Francois Isaac de Rivaz of Switzerland was the first to invent an internal combustion engine (1807) that used a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen for fuel and actually worked. Others before Francois Isaac de Rivaz had designed such engines but he was the first to actually build a working model that he later used to power the first automobile but his model was very poor and was not highly successful. The first combustion engine that was viewed as successful and safe to use was not invented for over half a century. 3. The significance of the internal combustion engine was that it is used to power several forms of transportation such as the automobile (car) and boats among others. These vhiecles powered by this engine were significantly faster then other means of transportation and changed our lives forever. Moving from point A to point B gets faster and easier every year ( arguably safer). 4. The two connections that I am making is between the industrial revolution and environmentalim. The internal combustion engine was invented during the industrial revolution, inventing the internal combution engine was made easier with all the factories and machinary made available by the industrial revolution, and made production of these engines and machinary more efficiant. The connection being made to environmentalism is that as the internal combustion engine is powered by the burning of fossil fuels, large amounts of CO2 is being emitted into our atmoshphere which is one of the made causes of Global warming. 5. Although the invention of the internal combustion engine eased our transportation metheds, it leaves behind a heavy carbon footprint as as a result our world is suffering. 6. http://inventors.about.com/library/weekly/aacarsgasa.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internal_combustion_engine
1. electric power 2. electric power is very commonly used around the world and is a source of great power for all of the world. although electricity can be seen as clean power it still does leave a carbon footprint 3. electric power solved a lot of problems as it enabled people to have electricity and light at all times day and night 4. electric power was developed during the industrial revolution during the 1800's. it is connected to environmentalism because it is cleaner means of power but is still not 100% clean 5. our lives would be completely different if i wasn't for electricity there would be no tv no lights no computers no nothing, and our every day lives depend on appliances and machines that run on electricity 6.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_power
2. Teburculosis is a very infectious deadly disease that usually attacks the lungs. Teburculosis was very wide spread during the industrial revolution and it is estimated that 60% of lower class citizens living in industrial areas were infected by terburculosis and 40% of all deaths was caused teburculosis in major manufactoring cities such as Manchester in England
3. Teburculosis caused a lot of problems as many workers in factories were infected with this deadly disease killing them or severly weakening them.
4. This is connected to the idustrial revolution as many it was a very common disease during that time cause by all of the pollution, it is also connected to environmentalism because it was caused by the polluted air and surroundings of the people that had the disease
5. If it wasn’t for the industrial revolution and teburculosis a lot of people would have still been alive, but likewise if others had not been effected by it in the past then scientists would not have created medicine to help cure those with the disease which in a way helps us.

1. The steam engine 2. The first Commercially successful steam powered engine was not developed until 1712 and is considered one of the main factors to the beginning of the industrial revolution. The creation of steam power derived from the thought fo using boiling water to produce mechanical movement. This though was higly successful and as a result the steam powered engine was created. The creation of the steam powered engine was a result of Incorporating technologies discovered by Savery and Denis Papin. 3. The steam powered engine was very effective esspecially in larger means of transportation such as the train where it is very popular and widly used. The steam powered engine was popular because it could be used to travel at extremely high speeds which is why it became so popular. The negative side of the Steam powered engine is that it is powered by burning fossil fuels such as coal, which releases a lot of carbon monoxide and Carbon dioxide leaving behind a heavy carbon footprint. 4. The two themes being connected are the industrial revolution and environmentalism. As the steam powered engine was created during the industrial revolution and was used in many factories as a source of powere it is heavely connected to the industrial revolution. The reason it is connected to environmentalism is because of the nature of its energy source ( fossil fuels ) they are heavey polluters and release a lot of CO2 and leave a heavy carbon footprint. 5. Although the steam powered engine provided a reliable source of power and trasportation it came at a heavy cost agains our environmnet and planet. 6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steam_engine
1. Factories 2. The first of the factories during the industrial revolution was formed during the 17th century. Factories became widespread around all the world but no country could compare to england. Factories were popular and widespread during the industrial revolution as they enable work to be done faster and more efficiantly and lead to many creations and technological advancements. It also created many jobs for lower class people. 3. Factories solved a lot of problems but likewise created a lot of them also. Although factories produced goods faster and cheaper and more efficiantly then ever bofore it came at some costs. One cost was the inhumane way that the workers, especially the children were treated at these factories, and the fact that all the pollution emitted from burning fossil fuels created a lot of diseases that killed thousands and polluted our planet 4. The connections being made are obviosly between the industrial revolution and environmentalism. As the factories were started as a result of the beginning of the industrial revolution it is thus connected. The way it connects with environmentalism is that a lot of factories used fossil fuels for power and/or dumped and polluted our oceans. 5. Our lives would not be the same if it was not for the industrial revolution, it is the reason behind our great scientific and technological advancements. But our current ways of living and polluting also started with the beginning of the industrial revolution causing a lot of pollution and damaging our planet. 6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_Revolution#Factories_and_urbanisation
1. Heliocentric theory 2. Nicolaus Copernicus was a brilliant scientist that refused to believe that the universe revolved around the world, through many studies and observations he proved himself correct as he discovered that our planet along with the other planets in our universe actually revolve around the Sun. 3-4. as many people were blind followers of the church they never posed to ask questions of the church. after this discovery some began to question the church and its beliefs beginning more scientific thought and belief. As people began to follow science a road was paved towards the beginning of the industrial revolution. 5. if it was not for Copernicus and his brilliance we may very well have not advanced at all technologically in the past 500 years. 6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heliocentrism http://www.emporia.edu/earthsci/amber/students/denning/hel.htm
1. The microscope 2. Zacharias Jansen of Middleburg Holland was credited for the invention of the scientific revolution in 1595. There are several forms of microscopes that have been invented but the most popular and the the first to be invented was the optical microscope and uses light to image the sample. It was not untill the mid 1700’s that the microscope was really used for extensive research. 3. The microscope proved to be very useful for scientific research and discovories. The microscope aided in discovering many oraganisms that otherewise would be invisible to us due to there miniscule size. These descovories and research lead to the creation of many cures and medicines that over hundreads of years of cured billions fo peoples and saved countless lives. 4. The two mod’s being connected are the scientific revolution and the industrial revolution. As the microscope was inveted at the beginning of the industrial revolution it conncets it to it. Due to the microscopes uses it has aided in countless discovories in all aspects of science connecting it to the scientific revolution. 5. The microscope has been truly influencial in our lives, Fatality rates from sicknesses and diseases are significantly lower due the the creation of medicines and cures. Many lives and people have been saved with the medicince created with the help of microscopes. 6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microscope
