Coal production started the Industrial Revolution. This is because the coal was used to make steam. The steam was used to power the trains and the trains transported goods. Another reason I think that coal production was what caused the Industrial Revolution is that the coal fuelled the furnaces and the furnaces melted the iron. The Iron was used to make trains and the iron was also used to make machines for the industrial production. The machines were also used to farm for the agricultural production. This is why I think that coal production was what caused the Industrial Revolution.
