Natural Resource Depletion Reason and Effects

Slide 2

What are Natural Resources?? Natural resources are resources that exist without actions of humankind. This includes all valued characteristics such as magnetic, gravitational, electrical properties and forces etc. On earth it includes: sunlight, atmosphere, water, land along with all vegetation, crops and animal life that naturally subsists upon or within the heretofore identified characteristics and substances.

Slide 3

Types Of Natural Resources Renewable resources: Renewable resources are those that are constantly available (like water) or can be reasonably replaced or recovered, like vegetative lands. Animals are also renewable because with a bit of care, they can reproduce offspring's to replace adult animals. If renewable resources come from living things, (such as trees and animals) they can be called organic renewable resources. If renewable resources come from non-living things, (such as water, sun and wind) they can be called inorganic renewable resources. Non-renewable resources Non-renewable resources are those that cannot easily be replaced once they are destroyed. Examples include fossil fuels. Minerals are also non-renewable because even though they form naturally in a process called the rock cycle, it can take thousands of years, making it non-renewable. Non-renewable resources can be called inorganic resources if they come from non-living things. Examples include include, minerals, wind, land, soil and rocks. Some non-renewable resources come from living things — such as fossil fuels. They can be called organic non-renewable resources.

What do you mean by Natural Resource Depletion? Resources are exhausted when it is being utilized quicker than it can recharge itself. The modern transformation is the point at which everything started. Resource depletion is the utilization of a resource quicker than it can be renewed. Normal resources are usually isolated between inexhaustible resources and non-sustainable resources . Utilization of both of these types of resources past their rate of substitution is thought to be resource depletion

Slide 6

Reason For Natural Resource Depletion? 1. Fast population increase 2. Contamination, 3. High utilization of resources, and 4. Disintegration of land.

Slide 7

Effect of Natural Resource Depletion on Human Health Poverty Atmospheric Changes Loss of Biodiversity

Slide 8

Use of Alternative sources of power such as Solar and Wind energy. Plant trees to prevent Soil Erosion. Use pipelines to transport oil. Treatment of industrial wastes and sewages before they are released in the water bodies. Rain harvesting. Use of biogas in our homes. Use of bio-fuels. Ensure the recycling of wastes. Make use of electronic mails. Use energy saving fluorescent bulbs Practice crop rotation. Constructions of reservoirs Solutions for Conserving Natural Resources?

Slide 9

Our livelihood is intimately tied to the food we eat, water we drink and places where we recreate. That's why we have to promote responsibility and conservation when it comes to our natural resources.
