I must confess that I slunk out of the railway station shunning its many lights as if, invariably, failure made an outcast of a man. I hadn't even the bundle and the stick of a destitute wayfarer. I was unshaven and unwashed, and my heart was faint within me. My attire was such that I daren't approach the rank of fiacres, where indeed I could perceive only two pairs of lamps, of which one suddenly drove away while I looked 79 PEACEFUL DAY'S: A TRUE PATHWAY TO WORLD PEACE.

By the early 1600s, co al was England�s primary fuel, and �coal towns� formed where workforces for new mines lived.� Mining towns were ramshackle affairs, populated by migrant workers, and the English class system became pronounced due to the gulf between coal miners and the rest of English society.� That ghetto-like existence was new in the British Isles.� In Scotland, coal miners were actually slaves, even wearing collars that identified their owners. [766] � Coal mining was hellish work, particularly in underground mines, which were dominant on the isle of Great Britain.� Miners were killed by mine gas (methane) explosions, asphyxiated by mine gas (carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, which is why they used canaries in coal mines ), died in cave-ins, and suffered myriad other horrific fates.� Drowning not only became a common way to die as mines began digging below the water table, but solving the water problem became a key event in the Industrial Revolution, and arguably the key event, which will be explored in the next chapter.� Coal miners eventually organized to get better working conditions, and coal miners were prominent in the USA�s labor movement. [767] From civi lization�s earliest days, the sailing ship was humanity�s greatest energy technology.� Today, the term � prime mover � refers to an engine�s component that transforms one kind of energy into another, usually by converting heat energy into mechanical energy (but it is the energy of motion in both instances).� But also when environmental energy is captured and turned into mechanical energy, it is accomplished via a prime mover.� In that regard, a water wheel and crankshaft is a watermill�s prime mover, and a windmill�s sail and crankshaft is its prime mover.� The prime mover is the machinery�s most important component and its heart, where the most advanced technology and materials are brought to bear, as that part endures the greatest stresses.� In an automobile, for instance, the prime mover is the combination of combustion cylinders and their attached crankshaft.� Chemical energy in gasoline is thereby transformed into mechanical energy via the controlled explosions of rapid fuel combustion, which liberated that solar energy captured so long ago .� In a sailing ship, the prime mover is the sail and mast, where wind energy is transferred to the ship.� The mast is a sailing ship�s most important component, and is like an engine�s crankshaft Germany from the earliest period (v.03).
