The island's dependency on food imports and tourism makes it vulnerable to price increases and economic slowdowns by its major trade partners. This text follows the development of New Amsterdam during Stuyvesant's efforts to organize the town. In the 19th century, energized by the industrial revolution and under pressure from a rapidly growing population, Europe launched a new period of colonial expansion, inspired by the discovery of new markets, new areas for the settlement of Europe’s poor migrants, and the desire to " civilize the barbarian nations ".

Native Ame ricans were virtually extinct by 1900, as were many of their fellow creatures.� The period from 1700 to 1900, when the English/American Empire expanded across North America, is arguably the most single-minded and sustained effort of environmental destruction that any species has ever inflicted upon this planet.� John Adams wrote that his family cut down more trees than any other family in America.� As one author wrote, the ax was the appropriate symbol of the early American attitude toward nature. [217] � North America likely had Earth’s greatest store of environmental wealth, and the English and Americans ruthlessly plundered it .� Eastern North America had the world’s largest temperate forest, and the old saying that a squirrel could have run from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River, without ever touching ground, was not very fanciful.� Eastern North America was almost completely deforested by those “pioneers.”� The passenger pig eon, which may have flown in the greatest flocks that Earth has seen, was on the brink of being driven to extinction in 1840, in capitalistic fashion.� Expanding railroads in the 1850s allowed for a short-lived industry of killing pigeons in the Midwest and transporting them to East Coast markets.� Passenger pigeons numbered in the billions, and migrating flocks turned day into night, but by the 1880s their populations had collapsed and the last passenger pigeon died in captivity in 1914.� The woodland bison, which roamed today’s Eastern USA, was rendered extinct by the early 19th century.�� Next to the industrialization of farming, the grea test cause of the explosion of world human population, which began growing with increasing rapidity during the last half of the 1700s, was likely the introduction of New World crops to the rest of humanity.� For providing human-digestible calories, New World crops were superior in significant ways.� Maize is Earth’s hardiest seed crop, and Native Americans developed more than three thousand varieties of it, so it could thrive from northern forest to arid desert, from mountaintop to seashore.� Northern China came to subsist on the sweet potato.� Ireland, Russia, and other harsh climates came to rely on the potato, which provided nearly double the calories of a wheat crop in half the time for less work at cultivation.� It was a healthier food than wheat (people can subsist solely on the potato) and was not as subject to the vagaries of weather.� The cassava root and maize became Africa's staple, which led to its population increase that began during the 19th century.� When New World crops were introduced to Old World agriculture, famines decreased and populations exploded, in Malthusian fashion.� With the introduction of the potato, Ireland grew from 3.2 million in 1754 to 8.2 million in 1845, while an additional 1.75 million migrated to the New World.� Today, more than half of the world’s crops are of New World origin. [218] � Native A mericans developed more than three thousand varieties of potato, and the white man made fatal errors in adopting New World crops.� The Irish came to depend solely on one variety of potato, which made the Irish subsistence crop vulnerable, and in 1845 a blight ripped through not only the Irish mono-crop, but also Europe’s, leading to a famine.� However, the Irish famine was partly induced by the UK, as Ireland was forced to export its cash crop foods to the UK, similar to the British-induced famines in India. �The Great Potato Blight and subsequent famine reduced Ireland’s population by more than a million, and initiated another great wave of migration to the New World.
