  • 11. Q3.What happens if we run out of Natural resources?<br /> The is a very likely chance of humanity running out of natural resources if we continue this way, because most of the resources can be renewed like water and trees, which we are using faster than the Earth can renew. The only resource that cannot be renewed is Fossil Fuels or as we know it oil. If such a situation were to happen we would need to find alternative sources for producing energy. For example people have started to use vegetable oil instead of fossil fuel.<br />Reasoning<br />Image<br />
  • 12. Q4.What is the reason for high demand of Natural resources?<br /> In the current economic state the demand for natural resources price have been increasing because the of the low quantity of available natural resources. Some resources such as Fossil Fuels, Forestry (trees) and also minerals found from mining. An example of this is oil (fossil fuel), as it is used in a persons everyday life for their advantages' like cars and public transport and also entertainment like racing cars. <br />Here is a graph of the rise on oil prices.<br />
  • 13. Q5.Are wasting our Natural Resources?<br />Different people believe if we’re wasting natural resources or not. Some people just say that were just wasting oil because other resources such as trees can be regrown and water can be renewed via the water cycle. The only resource were wasting is oil because it cant be renewed and we have already depleted most of the resource. Meanwhile others believe that we have depleted most of our natural resources because were using to much and the earth cant renew it as fast as we use it <br />
  • 14. How can Earth renew its natural resources?<br />How can humanity preserve natural resources?<br />Key Questions<br />
  • 15. How can Earth renew its natural resources?<br /> Natural Resources are needed for the survival of the human population. These resources are only limited on the Earth ability to renew itself. Plants renew via photosynthesis and the water cycle is how water renews itself. Non renewable resources such as minerals, gases and oils are not able to renew with the earth and will one day run out. Each little renewable resource has its way of renewing but if humankind consumes these resources faster than the earth can renew them then eventually the resources will run out. <br />
  • 16. How can humanity preserve natural resources?<br />Here are ten ways and reasons to help save natural resources.<br />Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.<br />Use Less Heat and Air Conditioning.<br />Change light bulbs to energy efficient bulbs.<br />Drive Less, Drive Smart or use Public Transport to use less carbon emissions.<br />Switch to reusable bags and don’t go for plastic.<br />Use less water and don’t waste water.<br />Switch off the lights when you're not using them and save energy.<br />Pay bills online to save paper.<br />Plant a tree, to absorb carbon emissions.<br />Use environmentally friendly products that are made with recyclable materials.<br />
  • 17. How can we ensure the earth will have enough natural resources for future generations?<br />Big Question<br />
  • 18. How can we ensure the earth will have enough natural resources for future generations?<br /> We a probably going to run out of natural resources someday if we keep up with this behavior. The prediction that everyone is talking about is 2050 because were running out of room on the earth and were using too much most natural resources can be renewed but oil cant because once you use it turns to Co2 which harms the atmosphere. <br />
