Paper is an essential commodity and has made a major contribution to the progress and development of many people. Throughout the ages it has provided a means for people to keep written records, information, create works of art and communicate ideas. In some parts of the modern world, the consumption of paper has reached an all time high, and much of it is wasteful and also unnecessary. Pulp and paper manufacturing has become one of the worlds biggest industries as a result of this excessive consumption. global paper and board production advanced 0.8% to reach a new record level of 403 million tonnes in 2013 inspite of the persistent drop in Europe and North America.
Pollution really became a major issue as a result of the Industrial Revolution. Hand labor was replaced by machine labor, which dramatically increased productivity. Coal power was heavily used to replace all kinds’ manual type work. The railroads were also used to bring materials where ever they were needed replacing river boats and other more manual ways of moving large amounts of material. This all helped to accelerate t... ... middle of paper ... ... growth and a lot of pollution as the world transformed into an Industrial driven economy.
The Industrial Revolution was a period from the 18th to the 19th century where major changes in agriculture, manufacturing, transport, and technology had a profound effect in North America. The industrial revolution marked a major turning point in history because it changed every aspect of life in America and the country as a whole. People started replacing ploughs and other tools for machines that could do twice the work. While others moved to large cities and started working in factories and other businesses. Huge industries such as the textile, steel, and coal industry came out and had a profound effect on the industrial revolution but, they would not have been extremely successful if it was not for railroads.
Many people moved into the cities as well, so China came to be very urbanized (244). The successes of the Tang dynasty were outcomes of the discoveries made at that time, and some of those discoveries are different kinds of paper. According to Dr. Keith Ray, paper is one of China’s four great inventions. Paper is made by laying out a mix of organic fibers and draining off the water (Lienhard). Papyrus was invented in Egypt around 2,200 BC, but the Chinese created the modern-like version of paper around 105 AD (Ray).
With a long history, Taoism was started in China 1,700 years ago. Taoism is one of the few indigenous religions in China. Taoism is popular in the rural areas of central and eastern China. There are fifteen-hundred Taoist temples in China, one of the most popular is the Baiyun Temple, also known as the White Cloud Temple in Beijing, China. The Baiyun Temple was built in the Ming dynasty and is known for its long history and architecture.
From the late 17th century to the early 19th century, industrialization was occurring in the United States and around Europe. The abundance of raw materials and the ambition of business men caused the industrialization before and after the Civil War. The First Industrial Revolution and Second Industrial Revolution, known as the Technological Revolution, caused the United States to thrive throughout those years because of population increase and all the new products or ideas there was. In the 1900s, the United States became the leading industrial power in the world because of both revolutions; the first revolution led into the second revolution because of the technology and economic changes occurring. The First Industrial Revolution changed agriculture customs and the Second Industrial Revolution caused changes in production techniques, but both helped the United States industrialize and become the most successful country in the world.
The invention of the Spinning Jenny had a major impact on the production of the cotton industry, this in turn led to the increase of factories in 1769. The rise of manufactories in 1769 was a factor of the most important development in the industrial revolution. Weaving was done more efficiently and the quality was increased and more durable due to the Spinning Jenny as well as the cottage system. During the 1700’s, mills and factories were dependent on the flow of water to power the machines that were necessary to produce materials and... ... middle of paper ... ...dustrial Revolution and transformed the world.

These manufacturing factories employed thousands of people which helped in the making of millions of items. This then gave people money which then they would use to buy these amazing never before seen products. Transportation also improved because of the demand and amount of items that needed to be shipped around the world.

The loss of trees coincided with the rapid rate of shipbuilding. Eventually, Europeans exploited their timber reserves to such an extreme that they began looking elsewhere for wood, including colonies in North America and Southeast Asia. With newfound resources, the European shipbuilding machine churned on, yet before long deforestation also became an issue in the colonial areas. Although shipbuilding played an integral role in a period of European advancement, it devastated not only the European environment but the forests of other continents as well. Prior to the Age of Exploration, hardwood trees blanketed all of Europe to form a forest giOB47;comparable in size to the Amazon Basin” (David Morse).
In the 1500s, sugarcane changed the world in a big way as it caused a trading increase between the Canary Islands and South America. The increasing demand for sugar from the sugarcane also caused many plantations to be established widespread in the western hemisphere. Sugarcane has been known to be a water-intensive crop which
