Since the Industrial Revolution in the late 18th century, factories and power plants have transformed human civilization. However, the negatives aspects of these industries often outweigh the positive aspects. Factories and power plants tend to create harmful by-products and many countries lack proper regulations for the disposal of dangerous waste. This book explores how factories and power plants benefit human life and can also cause extreme amounts of damage. Full-color photographs and fact boxes supplement the main text to further demonstrate these industries' positive and negative aspects.
