The Industrial Revolution initially started in England due to its damp climate that supported its textiles and cotton industries. There were also technological advances that resulted from the Industrial Revolution such as: the utilization of iron & steel in various products, a reliance on nonrenewable sources, new machines were invented, the creation of factories, and new innovations in transportation & communication (automobile & radios). Although England was at its peak, the Industrial Revolution later spread to other countries like Belgium and France due to interaction with the countries.
