Transcript of Resources in France

Resources in France
Laws and Policies about Renewable and Non-renewable Resources in France
Renewable Resources In France
Non-renewable Resources in France
Policies/Laws Obtaining Non-Renewable Resources
France is starting to use cleaner burning fuel.
They are also limiting the use of coal.
Doing these acts helps the environment.
Policies/Laws Obtaining Renewable Resources
France has a strong dependence on solar and wind energy.
A city in France is planning to install 40 wind turbines and solar farms.
They also have water policies that monitor and protect the use of water.
New Laws that Could be Suggested
France should make more laws for recycling their natural resources.
This would help make sure renewable and non renewable resources don't run out.
For exmaple, iPhones are made of almost all non renewable resources. So, if we don't recycle those resources, they could run out.
You should be also limited on the amount of oil, coal, timber, animals, water, sulfer, and bauxite you obtain each year.
A renewable resource is a natural resource (found in nature) that can replenish or reproduce.
Crops and Timber
Crops are very important to humans because we use crops to eat. However, when we grow the crops, we use bad chemicals; this is a negative impact on the environment.
Timber is a very common use for building materials and shelter, both are needed to survive. France may not cut down all the trees, but every tree cut down, is an animal's home cut down.
Animals are a renewable resource. Animals reproduce, but they don't reproduce as fast as we hunt them down. Animals have no negative impact to the environment, because they are the environment.
Water, Wind, and Solar Energy
Non-renewable Resources
Oil, a viscous liquid derived from petroleum.
Coal, a flammable black or dark brown rock mainly used for fuel.
Sulfur, the chemical element of atomic number 16, a yellow combustible nonmetal.
Bauite, an amorphous clayey rock that is the chief commercial ore of aluminum.
Negative Enviromental Impacts
Extracting oil takes a lot of energy, creates habitat destruction and is very expensive to obtain.
Collecting coal can create soil erosion, as well as dust, noise and water pollution, and it can impact local biodiversity, and cause land disturbance.
Sulfur can cause irritations of the eyes and the throat with animals, and give both animals and humans brain damage.
Bauxite can cause habitat destruction, erosion, loss of biodiversity, or water pollution. However, these are all short term effects.
Economic Importance
There are few oil reserves, but oil is still the principal energy import.
In 2004 the last coal mine was closed, but coal is used for electricity generation, steel production, cement manufacturing and it is also used as a liquid fuel.
Western Europe (where France is located) is the fourth country in which uses the most sulfur.
Bauxite production has ceased. However, there are still some bauxite reserves. Bauxite is the world's (including France's) main source of aluminum.
What is a renewable resource?
Water, wind, and solar energy are very common renewable resources.
Water is used in everyday purposes, we need water to survive. But, when humans use water, which is less water for the fish or other animals living in that environment, so it may not be a good thing that we use so much water.
Wind power and solar energy are used to generate many things us humans use, but placing the windmills and the solar panels takes up space that was once an animal's home.
Why should we worry about our renewable resources?
We need to worry about our renewable resources because:
Just because they are renewable doesn't mean they can't run out.
Once they run out, they can't come back or replenish/reproduce.

Renewable Resources

What is a non-renewable resource?
A non-renewable resource is a resource of economic value that cannot be readily replaced by natural means on a level equal to its consumption.
Why sould we worry about our non-renewable resources?
Once our non-renewable resources run out, we will never have any more. That being said, we should not waste our non-renewable resources.
By Sara J. Jasmine B. and Leah P.
A lawmaker named Steven Chu testifies at house of hearing.
In conclusion...
France needs to be aware of how much they use their rnewable and Non-renewable resources. Once they run out they run out.

A way to limit the use of renewable and non-renewable resources is to create more policies and laws on natural resources.
