Mongols Shirts and Crash Course Posters! http://store.dftba.com/collections/crashcourse In which John Green wraps up revolutions month with what is arguably the most revolutionary of modern revolutions, the Industrial Revolution. While very few leaders were beheaded in the course of this one, it changed the lives of more people more dramatically than any of the political revolutions we've discussed. So, why did the Industrial Revolution happen around 1750 in the United Kingdom? Coal. Easily accessible coal, it turns out. All this, plus you'll finally learn the difference between James Watt and Thomas Newcomen, and will never again be caught telling people that your blender has a 900 Newcomen motor.

Ancient Romans (or was it greeks) had knowledge of the sterling engine. However, slave labor was cheaper so they did not appear to develop this technology. <Needs Citation; I probably found this browsing wikipedia> That does add weight to the industrial revolution being partially fueled by a desire for cheap labor (aka machines). Its also notable that industrial revolution really took off after slavery was abolished or at least fading. Look at the US: I do not know the details but the impression given from my history courses is that the South had slaves and a lot of raw resources while the north had less slaves and more industry. If someone where to do some research they could probably find some good evidence for why that happened...

Sad that half the video, instead of adding more educational facts, had to wrestle the absolute BS disclaimer, "We can't credit anyone for excellence because that could look racist." Weak. PC culture is a plague.

How painful it is to watch john greens desperate, pleading attempts to show he’s not “Eurocentric” . Especially when it’s an episode about Europe. I wonder if he did a show about the blossoming Chinese industry he would bend over backwards to show he’s not being ”sino centric”

So this guy completely ignores the role of the enslavement of Africans as a primary source of cotton to British Industry. He goes on and on about Indian cotton. When in fact Slavery accounted for a tremendous amount of the cotton used in British textile industries. Most sugar was sold to Europe was being supplied by American Slave labor as well.

The industrial revolution was one of the greatest historical events. With the exception of war it changed the world the most. Also love the subtle hint that Thomas the tank engine was named after Thomas Newcomen.

you are missing angle of the colonial advantage of Britain that led to the expansion of markets for its products as well as financed its trade.

even the word thug which originally came from India, was used by the british to potrate a bad image on the people who tried to resist them from taking control over their homes and destroying their villages(and livelihood).

And Railways were possible because millions of trees(millions in sq kms) were cut down in India(and indonesia) to make the huge british navy ships and railway sleepers. Now imagine the loss! . . Floura and fauna, tribal communities depending on the forests, forest products and of course the pollution free enviornment.
too good

On steam turbines. Steam, entering a turbine at (to pick a common number) 600 psi, leaves the turbine reduced to near vacume (about 30 inches). 800 plus degrees F to around 200 degrees meaning damn near every bit of energy put into it is used to rotate the tubine.

It never occurs to him that what allowed industrialization in Britain was empire. You need a lot of wealth to industrialize. This means you need to steal things from other countries. He almost got it when he started talking about exploitation of cheap Indian labor. Keep in mind that the British Empire started as early as the 15th century. Britain was a lot more than just a small island.

James watt did NOT invent the steam locomotive or steam boats he didn't even use high pressure steam. The steam locomotive was invented in 1803 by a man named Richard travific look it up its not that hard Also that's not how you spell his name just watch a sires on YouTube called mark Williams on the rails

One thing he got incorrect. Even after British industrialization, they weren't able to compete with Indian textiles so, they did the logical thing: They conquered India, and put an EXPORT tax on cotton. After that, they chopped off the hands of the cotton weavers just to be sure.

Zaida Ragozin cites that the non-Aryan peoples were inventive (in the case of the Mongoloid peoples), but lacked the ability to improve their inventions; implying that they are an earlier evolution of man, as the Theosophical Society would have it.

to me, the basic difference is on quality of Education, specifically Science Education. Europian had a systematic approach to doing science and research which was a lack in other parts of the world, certainly in India.

China failed due to lack of competition in their eyes they were the most powerful country on the earth and their loss in the Opium Wars surprised them they failed because of being united and large that’s the same way with Russia and Rome all eventually failed due to being too centralized and having no competition

We were taught that the four reasons it happened in Britain was because of 'CANT'. C- Colonies (trading, exports, imports, etc.), A- Agricultural Revolution (which led to less people working on farms and more flocking to the cities), N- New machines (Spinning Jenny, Flying Shuttle, etc.) and T- Transport (As in the Transport Revolution). Loved the video! Would ye ever consider doing one about Irish history?
