Industrial Revolution/ Riley Spaeth/ 8th hour

Resources is the word I think best represents the Industrial Revolutions because during that time and now still we’re over using a lot of our natural resources. Humans are using 30% more resources than the Earth can replenish each year. This is causing deforestation,degraded soil, polluted air and water, and major decline in numbers of fish and other species. Some of our most wasted resources are water, oil, natural gases, food, and phosphorus. We have come up with a lot of different ways to reuse things but a lot of people don’t see the need for it all and decide not to do these things. Eventually if we don’t reduce the amount we waste of our resources we won’t have them when we really need them.
