Things have to go together.
For example in England, the Bank of England had to be put in place. This allowed virtually unlimited borrowing, the freeing up of money.
There had to be an enthusiastic scientific base, there was. Then there had to be the Agrarian Revolution. Agriculture had to first become efficient, so less human bodies were needed. Transport needed to be made much easier, hence the development of the canal system.
Without all these prerequisites, the Industrial Revolution would not have happened, first, in the U.K.
Natural Gas for Electricity Base Load.
The desire to kill the coal industry.
The discovery of North Sea Oil & Natural Gas.
Natural Gas was at first, a waste product. In industry, they always find a profitable way of utilizing waste products.
The Methane had to be cheap enough to change power in the U.K.
All these things came together.
The U.K. Continental Shelf Act came into force in May 1964. The Three-Day Week of 1974, was what helped to set this transission in motion.
