Industrial Revoluition

Negative EditorialI argue that the industrial revolution has had a negative effect on England, I believe this because the pollution fill the air from factories, there are outrageous numbers of child labor, and the values and conflicts of the people change dramatically every day. Pollution has a major effect on England; the factories increase the use of hydrocarbon fuels, such as coal, oil and natural gases. There are many cases of cholera break outs throughout Paris and London is filled with smog. I watch people die because of the high levels of pollution, it’s sickening. Oh, and the children working 10 to 14 hours to help support their family, but still they are just managing to be above the poverty line. The unsafe working conditions are taking their sweet innocent lives right before us but safety is not a concern, death is a harsh reality nowadays. The urbanization over here is ridiculous, it is just sky rocketing. People moving from farms to towns, and now the towns and cities are becoming to be overpopulated. There is really not much work for the people out of the towns. The discrimination toward these poor people is just disgusting and I cannot believe that anyone could say such a thing toward these immigrants to the town. This revolution has had an awful toll on the people; it has had a negative impact on so much of England. I do not believe anything good can come from this revolution

IndustrialRevolution

Positive EditorialI argue that the industrial revolution has had a positive effect on England. This is because it created new minerals like coal and iron, new technology like the cotton gin, and new methods of transportation like the train. All of these things have made our lives easier and that is why I say that the industrial revolution has had a positive effect on England.New minerals like coal and iron are one of the positives of the industrial revolution. Coal and iron in England supplies us with energy that runs our transportation like the steamboat. The invention of coal and iron is also used to improve our machines in our factories. Improving our machines will make them safer to run and safer for the children to use. There is also an abundant amount of coal and iron so enough is made to make the goods that people need, like machine frames, water pipes, and rails for the train tracks.Another positive of the industrial revolution is new technology. New technology would include the invention of the steam machine by James Watt. The steam engine is used to pump water out of our mines and to raise the minerals from the mines; this makes it easier to obtain coal. The cotton gin is also a new technology invented, the cotton gin was invented by Eli Whitney and this machine is used to separate the seeds from the cotton. Before the cotton gin, farming cotton took hundreds of men to separate the cotton seeds from the cotton and now since the machine has been invented it is a lot faster to separate the seeds and it has revolutionized the cotton industry! The telegraph is another major invention that has been invented during the industrial revolution and has revolutionized long distance communication. The telegraph is used by transmitting electrical signals over a wire laid between stations; there is also a code that allows you to send long and complex messages to others.Transportation has changed a lot during this time of the revolution. The invention of roads has made it easier to transport goods to other places. Another new source of transportation is in waterways, in waterways the steamboat is used to transport goods. The steamboat can carry materials from New York City to the Hudson River and many other major ports. The last form of transporation is through the invention of trains! The industry is benefiting from the invention of trains because goods could now be transported faster and in greater quantities which then is reducing costs and creating bigger markets.The industrial revolution has made a positive effect on England and still is! It has created new minerals like coal and iron, new technology like the cotton gin, and new methods of transportation like the train. All of these things have made our lives easier and way more efficient and that is why the industrial revolution has had a positive effect on England!

Many younng boys worked in mines because they are cheap labor

This little girl is working in a textile factory changing the bobbins in and out.

One reason they use young children was the holes do not have to be nearly as big for them, as it would an adult

The cotton gin has made it faster to seperate the seeds from the cotton and has revolutionized the cotton indusrty.

Coal and iron in England supplies us with energy that runs our transportation.
