Most obvious was using coal for wood, this called for new technologies Cotton for wool One form of transportation for another. The railroad. All of these new subs are actually somewhat inferior ones, they involve more complicated procedures to use them. Their products are usually not as good compared to traditional goods. But because of the scarcity these new products make sense in an ecological way. Prior to industrialization people rely 100 percent on the land (food, clothing, fuel, etc). when population growth created a demand for more food, there is now an economic incentive to be a more efficient farmer, people begin deforesting to make more arable land just then as there is a high demand for wood because of all of the ships being built for the use of trading.
