Pomeranz argues along the same lines, when he points out that life expectancy in Asia was equal if not better than that of Europe up to 1750. Perdue also suggests that if scarce population was the sole catalyst for innovation, Siberia would be the most technologically advanced area on the planet, which it is of course not.

Having used wood for heat instead of coal, Britain was left with large deposits of coal remaining to fuel the new ideas. When the cost of living decreased and the standard of living increased, the population experienced a large boom. Even though conditions in Song China were similar, the cheap coal available in Britain and the problems they had to overcome gave the British a unique and cheap motive to innovate. European manufacturers feared that a lack of new markets would result in overproduction, which in turn would lead to economic depression. People started to expand their thoughts and ideas in hope for a greater technological development. In 1891, Russia began construction on the Trans-Siberian Railway, which eventually became the longest railway line in the world.
While many European states benefited from the Enlightenment, Britain was alone in possessing an adequate supply of skilled craftsmen who were afforded the freedom to be entrepreneurial.

During the 1930's hybrid corn became popular, further increasing yields. China utilised its waterways for transport links, and purchased warhorses from Central Asia and proceeded to breed them throughout the seventeenth century. Many theses place the ecological factor of coal as the vanguard of their studies, the discovery by the British of steam power created from coal arguably led to the Industrial revolution through transport and powerful machinery.
