The Industrial Revolution was a period of time when people began to use new technology to mass-produce items. It began in Europe in the 18th century, when new power sources like steam engines, electricity, and oil were becoming common. The first country that started to industrialize was Britain, because they had the wealth that was necessary to build new machines. Soon, other European countries began to build machines too. This change caused a lot of people to start working in factories instead of on farms. However, some factories had very poor working conditions. Because of this, factory workers began to form unions so that they could protest against unfair treatment. This was when many countries decided to create laws to help protect workers. These new laws banned child labour, restricted working hours, and tried to make factories safer.

The industrial revolution was the greatest idea during the 18th century on the other hand it was a mistake to start the revolution without discussing the future problems that would come next two centuries. human beings always they make mistake with their self because climate change is a common issue that we heard these days and but remember that during industrial revolution nobody knows what would come after civilization.
Thank you so much

Indeed,it is prudent to realize that Industrialization has come with many challenges,we talk of Pollution and Climate change.
In as much as we embrace industrialization, there is need to come up with measures that will protect the environment as well as humanity.I. Say so because some companies do care how they dispose off the waste products; there must be designated points where the waste products are to be disposed off and also come up with recycling companies to help cut back the risks that come with Solid Waste Mismanagement.
Manufacturers must ensure that the Channels are put up to allow the smoke flow in one direction on top so that so many lives are not disadvantaged.
Very interesting.It made me remember about history.
I make this exercise late sory
That was bygone era even though they took these much steps which had done by them. That was very impressive.
I think this was an important changes to worker and the creation of items which made that the economy the country increased

– Adopting green energy
– To to decrease population

very good ,thank you very much .
Thank too much.
Though many manufactures cause issues for the environment, still there strategies can be done in order to achieve the benefits of making and selling mass products. First of all, the companies should consider using sustainable material such as solar panels, windmill or other friendly energy resources, which means that the alternative usages will reduce carbon dioxide into the air and therefore it stops causing climate change effect. Secondly, there must be a standard polity for infrastructure applying at the beginning of building the company. For instance: they are certain number of water and human waste removal systems, noises control inside the production building. Finally, the government also maintains regular audit over time to make sure the systems have been follow up properly. In consequence there will be significant fines if they break the laws.
This topic is so complicate and complex. First, people have to convince themselves that we need immediate changes to start new behaviour for stopping the real environment problems. In this way we have to switch fossil fuels to other kind of them like Voltage cell, solar energy, wind energy, ocean energy, etc, or a combination of them to cut pollute emissions. In addition, we should have to cut cattle raising areas, some type of construction materials, industrial items, etc; these are part of the solution but not all of them. In other wise, we have to resign all human activities to get extraordinary changes to reach great reductions of environment pollution.
