Natural Resources---- Substances that come from the Earth
What we can find in rocks and minerals
Green Movement- Conserving resources. Reasons to conserve have to do with the fact that certain kinds of resources can run out. Also, due to the fact that after we use resources, they often change, we have the issue of disposal. Where, How and what can we do with the used resources are all important questions.
Renewable Resources can be replaced- like trees. Not a big deal to use as long as we are aware of making sure that we re-plant more in it’s place. The problem is when we do not plant more, like when we cut down forests to build malls.
Nonrenewable Resources can not be replenished after they are used. It is possible to use all of them up and wait millions of years for them to come back, if they come back at all. Iron, gold and copper are all nonrenewable resources.
Fossil Fuels like coal and oil and natural gas are very important to us, but they are also nonrenewable. Because of the growth of industry and technology in the last 200 years, these resources have been severely cut down on Earth and of major concern to us.
