Transcript of Natural Resource Depletion- Fossil Fuels

Natural Resource Depletion- Fossil Fuels
Biotic and Abiotic Factors Effected- Global
-abiotic factors include:
water depletion
soil erosion
oil depletion
fossil fuel depletion
natural gas depletion
Description of Impact
Part 2
Positive or Negative Impact?
Why are we using fossil fuels? Even though using these resources are a negative impact, not only because of the high cost but also because they are sources of pollution and climate change, we don't have any resources that are "easy" to access compared to using more energy efficient resources
These resources are nonrenewable because once they're gone, they're gone. It's important to use resources that can be reused, or renewable resources
Some positive impacts however are that they are relatively cheap when compared to other sources of energy and are convenient to obtain

Summary
Works Cited
fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas, are the United States' leading source of energy
there are a lot of things that you have to pay for, such as labor for workers to mine or drill these materials, build generating plants, and transport the materials to these plants
many of the U.S.'s environmental problems today are from fossil fuels
impacts include air pollution, thermal pollution, national security, water pollution, land pollution, and global warming

-Temperature rise is one large negative local impact of fossil fuels
Burning any carbon based fuel (fossil fules) converts carbon to carbon dioxide
This carbon dioxide is usually released to the atmosphere unless it is captured and stored, which it usually isn't
Burning fossil fuels releases carbon that was removed from the atmosphere millions of years ago by animal and plant life
This leads to increased concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

Description of Impact
Part 1
The current global population is about 7 billion and counting. At this rate of demand, the earth has only enough resources for another 2 billion. 2.5 % of earth's volume is fresh water and 70% of that is frozen. This lack of water is causing heat temperatures to rise and no water in the soil. If there isn’t any water in the soil no plants will be watered and will die causing famine.
Oil is a non-renewable resource and 40% of energy is fueled by oil. On current demand, there is only enough oil for another 25 years. This causes wastage and an increase in population but there will be an increase in energy prices and less transport options.
18 million acres of forest are cut down and burned to fuel energy. Trees absorb CO2 and let out oxygen. When trees are cut down it makes room for urbanization but there will be soil erosion, global warming, species extinction, flooding, and drought.

different sources of energy are starting to be used
for example: hydroelectric plants, nuclear energy plants, wind energy, solar energy, biomass fuel, etc.
Why aren't these things being used now? Getting these sources of energy or harnessing their energy is more expensive than extracting the fossil fuels that we use currently
pros: these alternative sources of energy are everywhere and most come in abundance
these sources of energy are already being widely used throughout the world, but they will hopefully replace fossil fuels one day

-7 Resources are being drained
water- 2.5% is fresh and 70% of the 2.5 is frozen
oil- 46.2 years worth left
natural gas- 58.6 years worth left
phosphorus- plants can't grow without fertilizer, 50-100 years worth left
coal- 188 or less years worth left
rare earth elements- scandium and terbium are used for smart phones, 97% come from China and can be cut off at will
-Exploding Population
7 billion people in the world now with 9 billion by 2050
costs will double
- Water Shortage
50 gallons of water are used to extract 1 gallon of oil
drought-irrigation-pollution-dams
70% more food is needed to feed the growing population by 2050
forest cut down to grow crops
-What can we do?
​Using resources to make household items​
- TV
-Paper- uses nonrenewable resources
-car
Reuse old and used things
limit water usage
reduce, reuse, recycle
-Abiotic Factors
deserts are growing
water tables are falling
cheap oil is declining
famine
drought
-Biotic Factors
fish (many fisheries are collapsing or are on their way)
forest depletion/forest are shrinking
species are disappearing

The planet's resources are running low. Our world population is too high and going up even further. If this continues scientists believe that we only have until 2050 before we run out of resources. 2.5% of the worlds volume is fresh water but only 70% of that is frozen.
