Natural Resources: Gifts From the Earth
What are natural resources?
A natural resource is something which is found in nature and is used by humans.
A renewable resource is a resource that is virtually inexhaustible or that can be replenished over relatively short time spans (Lutgens, Tarbuck, Tasa, 2009).
In other words, resources we can make more of quickly and probably won't run out of.
A non-renewable resource is "a resource that forms or accumulates over such long time spans that it must be as fixed in total quantity" (Lutgens, Tarbuck, Tasa, 2009).
In other words, resources that take so long to form that we could possibly use up all the supply that is available.
