    2. Industrial Revolution and Climate Science The Industrial Revolution: A future of limitless human achievement? 1830: George Stephenson's locomotive, The Rocket "Watt and Stephenson whispered in the ear of mankind their secret, that a half ounce of coalwill draw two tons a mile …" The Conduct of Life, "Wealth" Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1860 Source: Wikipedia American Chemical Society

    3. Industrial Revolution and Climate Science The Industrial Revolution: A future of limitless human achievement? Achievements unimagined by Emerson require unimaginable amounts of energy. What else was unimagined? Source: Wikipedia Source: Matt Lemmon American Chemical Society

    12. Industrial Revolution and Climate Science The Industrial Revolution: A boon that enormously benefits man. The Industrial Revolution: A boon that comes with an enormous energy price tag mostly paid for in burning fossil fuel. The Industrial Revolution: A boon that comes with the unintended consequence that carbon emissions are changing the Earth's climate in disturbing ways. The Industrial Revolution: A boon that requires the Watts and Stephensons of the 21st century to develop ways to use energy more efficiently, to produce alternative non-carbon-emitting sources, and to reduce the impact of carbon-emitting sources.
