By resource is meant any physical entity, which has limited availability. These resources occur in their natural form. Few examples of natural resources are: •Air, wind and atmosphere •Plants (Flora) •Animals (Fauna) •Agronomy (the science of using plants for food, fuel, feed and fiber) •Wildlife •Forestry and Agroforestry •Coal and fossil fuels •Range and pasture •Soils •Water, oceans, lakes and rivers Something that people generally arent aware of, is that everything we use in everyday life are derived from natural resources, for example, milk which comes from cows - animals are a natural resource. We use water, food and vegetables that comes from plants, salt which is a mineral are some of the other natural resources. Wood that we get from tree is a natural resource. It can be used to build a house, make paper, burn in fireplaces and in stoves for cooking, etc. Man utilizes these resources in various ways. These resources are processed further so as to be made suitable for our needs. The table below is an example that shows in what way the resources have been utilized.

Visit us/get in touch at: http://wastersblog.com/1653/examples-of-renewable-resources/ We provide Examples of Renewable Resources: A renewable resource is one that replaces itself normally at a rate equal to or higher than human usage. The term normally refers to renewable energies, which are self-sustaining in time. There are 5 primary kinds of renewable resources, solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal and biomass. Many countries today are increasing their use of renewable energies to change fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, which take thousands and occasionally millions of years to change themselves, making them non-renewable resources. Examples of non-renewable resources are fossil fuels, like coal, oil, natural gas and soil, rocks, minerals. As soon as they have been gotten rid of from a mine or removed it takes a very long time indeed for them to re-form. We have actually counted on fossil fuels for our energy requires because, traditionally, these fuels have actually been reasonably inexpensive, and rewarding for designers. With increasing fuel costs, issues about ecological effect and growing political concerns about oil providers, renewable energy is acquiring in importance. Renewable resources are natural sources that can not be diminished. Examples consist of solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass and geothermal. Fossil fuels like coal, oil and even clean-burning gas do not exist in unrestricted supply. One day they will be gone. In additional to unending availability, renewable resources create less environmental impact, specifically pollution. Generally speaking renewable resources can be categorized as natural renewable resources and non-organic renewable resources. Plant and animal species are the examples of natural renewable resources whereas gases like oxygen and water are the examples of non-organic renewable resources. Birds or animals getting extinct have now become a regular function. Although some species have actually disappeared from the earth's surface due to natural tragedies, most of them have actually become extinct due to excessive hunting and poaching. Examples of renewable resources are fresh water, fish, and soil. Non-renewable resources such as oil and minerals are irreplaceable, and they do not effectively regrow once they are consumed. Renewable energy describes power created by a renewable source. When the energy is generated, the resource is not exhausted or consumed. They are naturally replenished, and can either be managed so that they last permanently, or their supply is so enormous human beings can never ever meaningfully deplete them. Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energy sources do not release carbon dioxide as a byproduct into the atmosphere. As the quantity of nonrenewable fuel source resources in the world lowers, it is ending up being increasingly essential to discover and make use of alternative fuels. In the US, Alternative Energy is made use of and in general it implies the like renewable, implies any thing besides deriving energy through Fossil Fuel combustion. Alternative energy is likewise a natural deposit ends up being a renewable resource when it is replaced by natural processes at a rate which is quicker than its consumption rate by human beings. Solar radiation, tides, winds and hydroelectricity are the sources which are of lasting accessibility. Renewable resources may include mean products like wood, paper, and leather, if their harvesting is carried out in a sustainable way. So, to summarize, we will certainly just say that renewable resource is a natural resource that can replaced with biological or other natural processes and renewed after a long time. They are part of natural environment however they are threatened by commercial developments and development. Solar radiation, biomass, tides, geothermal, and winds are examples of renewable resources.

The three Rs Hello I am the Earth, yup the very planet you live on. There are three words which start with the letter R which I love. They are: Reduce, reuse and recycle. Do you know why I love them so much? Because they are almost magical words. Together they can make all living things as well as myself be happier. I said that they are “almost” magical because without your help it won't work, they need all of you children in order to do the trick. Each and every one of you are the real 3Rs magicians, those three words which can change the world. Do you want to know how? Yes? Well let's find out. The first R is for reduce. If you think about it, there are many things you don’t need. When you go to the supermarket, I am sure you could take your own canvas bags instead of using disposable ones given to you. This way you will be reducing the amount of plastic which is very contaminating. And I am sure that you don’t need to print out so many documents or photos, nor leave the lights, television or computer on when you are not using them. If you remember this, you will be reducing the amount of paper being used as well as energy, and in turn will be helping reduce the contamination. And these are just a few examples. I am sure you can think of many more different ways to reduce what you are using or creating unnecessary waste. The following question will help you with this task: Do I really need this or is this just a whim? The second R is for recycling. Now it is easier than ever to recycle things we don’t need any more so that they can be reused. Near your home you can find places, like the recycling station and containers for cans, plastic, paper or organic waste. They each have their specific colors to make them easier. By using them, you will avoid contaminating nature, the rivers and seas as well as the atmosphere, which is the air we breathe. And finally we have the third R, which refers to reuse. How many things do you think we can reuse again and again instead of throwing them away? Let´s see…a piece of paper that has only one side printed on it, a carton box, a plastic bottle…you think now. With just a bit of imagination, I am sure you will come up with many more exciting and fun new uses for them. And remember: if you apply the 3Rs rule, you will make me a much cleaner planet, with less contamination and where we all can enjoy a better life. Because as you know…children can make the world of difference.

How much should you get paid for your job? Well, that depends on a lot of factors. Your skill set, the demand for the skills you have, and what other people are getting paid around you all factor in. In a lot of ways, labor markets work on supply and demand, just like many of the markets we talk about in Crash Course Econ. But, again, there aren't a lot of pure, true markets in the world. There are all kinds of oddities and regulations that change the way labor markets work. One common (and kind of controversial one) is the minimum wage. The minimum wage has potential upsides and downsides, and we'll take a look at the various arguments for an against it. Crash Course is on Patreon!

This video provides a basic definition of sustainability. You’ve probably heard the term “sustainability” in some context or another. It is likely that you’ve used some product or service that was labeled as sustainable, or perhaps you are aware of a campus or civic organization that focuses on sustainability. You may recognize that sustainability has to do with preserving or maintaining resources—we often associate sustainability with things like recycling, using renewable energy sources like solar and wind power, and preserving natural spaces like rainforests and coral reefs. However, unless you have an inherent interest in sustainability, you probably haven’t thought much about what the term actually means. Simply put, sustainability is the capacity to endure or continue. If a product or activity is sustainable, it can be reused, recycled, or repeated in some way because it has not exhausted all of the resources or energy required to create it. Sustainability can be broadly defined as the ability of something to maintain itself. Biological systems such as wetlands or forests are good examples of sustainability since they remain diverse and productive over long periods of time. Seen in this way, sustainability has to do with preserving resources and energy over the long term rather than exhausting them quickly to meet short-term needs or goals. The term sustainability first appeared in forestry studies in Germany in the 1800s, when forest overseers began to manage timber harvesting for continued use as a resource. In 1804, German forestry researcher Georg Hartig described sustainability as “utilizing forests to the greatest possible extent, but still in a way that future generations will have as much benefit as the living generation” (Schmutzenhofer 1992). While our current definitions are quite different and much expanded from Hartig’s, sustainability still accounts for the need to preserve natural spaces, to use resources wisely, and to maintain them in an equitable manner for all human beings, both now and in the future. Sustainability seeks new ways of addressing the relationship between societal growth and environmental degradation, which would allow human societies and economies to grow without destroying or overexploiting the environment or ecosystems in which those societies exist. The most widely quoted definition of sustainability comes from the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations in 1987, which defined sustainability as meeting “the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” But sustainability is about more than just the economic benefits of recycling materials and resources. While the economic factors are important, sustainability also accounts for the social and environmental consequences of human activity. This concept is referred to as the “three pillars of sustainability,” which asserts that true sustainability depends upon three interlocking factors: environmental preservation, social equity, and economic viability. First, sustainable human activities must protect the earth’s environment. Second, people and communities must be treated fairly and equally—particularly in regard to eradicating global poverty and the environmental exploitation of poor countries and communities. And third, sustainability must be economically feasible—human development depends upon the long-term production, use, and management of resources as part of a global economy. Only when all three of these pillars are incorporated can an activity or enterprise be described as sustainable. Some describe this three-part model as: Planet, People and Profit. From pollution, to resource depletion, to loss of biodiversity, to climate change, a growing human footprint is evident. This is not sustainable. We need to act differently if the world and its human and non-human inhabitants are to thrive in the future. Sustainability is about how we can preserve the earth and ensure the continued survival and nourishment of future generations. You and everyone you know will be affected in some way by the choices our society makes in the future regarding the earth and its resources. In fact, your very life may well depend upon those choices.

We are celebrating the successful reintroduction into the wild of a very strange looking and peculiar fresh prehistoric fish. The Lake sturgeon can get really big... and live a really long time. They can grow to eight or nine feet long... weigh 300 pounds... and live to to be 150 years old... that's only if they can survive their circumstances. They're listed in Tennessee as endangered. But over the past couple decades... more than 220,000 Lake Sturgeon have been hatched and then released into the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers. And it's kind of a big deal, as Dakota Casteel shows us. Our website explains what to do if you happen to catch a sturgeon when you're fishing. Sturgeon are proof that our natural resources come in all shapes and sizes. Some of the most spectacular examples can be found in Tennessee's 85 state natural areas... places like Short Springs Natural Area in Coffee County, just outside of Tullahoma.

As global demand for natural gas grows, companies are using advanced technology to transport it from source to customers. Gas can be piped over relatively short distances. But cooling the gas to -162°C (-260°F) turns it to liquid for easier, safe shipment to faraway markets overseas. Shell provided the natural gas for the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) project more than 50 years ago. Today the world's largest provider of LNG, Shell continues to develop innovative approaches to unlock new resources of natural gas.

Most 10 Eco-Friendly Cities - Top 10 List Many countries and city governments have been taking action in order to clean up the messes of the past. Ecology has become one of the major philosophies in all societies, as we, as a people, have a goal to leave the Earth for our descendants in a better state than when we found it. If we can follow the example set by these Top 10 Eco-Friendly Cities of the world, we’ll be well on our way to sustaining Earth for many more generations to come. https://www.facebook.com/toptruths/ https://www.toptruths.com https://www.advexon.tv LIKE / SHARE / SUBSCRIBE 10. Oslo, Norway Eco-efficiency is important in this city, and it begins with grass-roots involvement. Oslo residents are encouraged to clean up, go green, and create a climate that features better air quality, eco-efficiency, biodiversity, and an abundance of clean, natural resources. The streets of Oslo look fantastic, due to local contributions being made to keep the area sustainable and highly-functioning for all of its residents. 9. Stockholm, Sweden Stockholm is among the cleanest cities in the world. It was the first city to win the European Green Capital Award, and it has a noble long-term plan to be fossil fuel free by 2050. The riverside city is stunning and features lots of natural landscape, such as beautiful trees navigated by cycling paths. Environmental policies are prioritised in Stockholm, and as such, the streets are clean and the urban city has a country-like feel to it, despite having tall buildings and a large number of residences. 8. Columbia, Missouri, United States Investing the time to become an eco-friendly city certainly has its benefits, such as energy reduction which in turn lowers costs and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. In Columbia, Missouri, businesses are incentivised to improve their energy efficiency though a city-wide grant system. Columbia’s City Green program determines how much energy a particular business uses, and then offers to pay for half the cost of an energy audit. Once the audit is completed, the city will pay for repairs up to $12,500. To keep the city looking great, Columbia has a number of green groups, which are coalitions of like-minded people who collaborate to achieve common environmental goals. These groups clean rivers, restore animal habitats, and promote beautification, restoration, and citywide recycling. 7. Vancouver, Canada Vancouver’s most notable performance is in the area of CO2 emissions. In The Green City Index, Vancouver boasts the lowest greenhouse gas emissions per capita of any city. Additionally, the city’s ecological goals include reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent and planting 150,000 new trees by 2020, making it one of the greenest cities on the map both literally and figuratively speaking. 6. Cape Town, Johannesburg, and Durban, South Africa These three towns in Africa all share a spot on the greenest cities list. It is very hard to pick just one city since all these three are very strong in different categories. For example, Cape Town and Johannesburg is said to have most green spaces in the whole continent. While Durban managed to take a lead because of its target to become a zero-waste city within 20 years and carbon neutral by 2050. 5. San Francisco, United States San Francisco used to be a capital city of the Hippy movement, but it would be wrong to say that this is the only reason this city is one of the greenest around the globe and the most ecological in North America. This city was the first in the United States to introduce the coloured bins recycling system to homes and workplaces, making recycling easy and accessible, and more importantly — legally obligatory. The fantastic public transport system and government’s encouragement for people to use more electric cars also helped San Francisco to be one of the eco-friendliest cities in the world.

Fracking explained in five minutes. Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter. We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water. This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us. Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science. We would love to interact more with you, our viewers to figure out what topics you want to see.

Cameron Rennie, Senior Strategy Advisor at BP Group Technology, delivered the third BP-ICAM webinar of the year on the global energy challenge. Increasingly we recognise that we live in an interconnected world. Solving a challenge in one domain can have implications in another area. This applies to the production and use of energy. Cameron Rennie discussed how the production and use of energy is linked to availability of many natural resources. He described examples of dependencies on availability of water, land and specific minerals. The challenge is to create understanding, to navigate the complex interdependencies – so decision makers encourage policy that prevents resource constraints, even as the climate changes and economies expand and urbanize. The good news is that application of technology enables greater efficiencies in use of resources and points to a future that should enable delivery of energy where we need it to provide the services we want. Some of the implications point to areas where developments in materials are needed. Cameron also covered the approach taken by BP in fostering cross-disciplinary and multi-institutional research – and in ensuring impact and relevance. Cameron Rennie leads the energy sustainability analysis for Group Technology at BP to understand the opportunities and risks brought about by pressures on natural resources under a changing climate. His previous roles encompassed policy and advocacy in Biofuels, project management consultancy across all streams, an external secondment to the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and management of BP projects in East Africa, the Middle East and the USA.

With the developments within green electricity technological know-how, it's easier than in the past to start renovating the house right into a natural power household. Some sort of natural power household works by using green sources to provide power, hot water, warm along with comfort. http://urlbit.es/gogreen To seriously realize some great benefits of environmentally friendly solar energy, you must primary understand how solar energy will be harnessed. There are 2 forms of eco-friendly pv energy-thermal in addition to light-weight. Thermal power is known as passive photo voltaic. This green solar panel technology is actually gathered from the layout and supplies used to construct a new building. Through bringing in southern region experiencing windows and resources of which maintain temperature, such as packet and also jewel, you possibly can decrease your vitality desires and also build an energy productive construction. This winter power that is generated by green solar technology can be accustomed to high temperature mineral water intended for photovoltaic warm water methods. Your sunshine in addition develop lighting and also rays which can be captured by simply solar power panels to create power. The most used use of environment friendly solar energy is for lowering costs. Though natural power from the sun methods can come with a sizable primary expenditure, they often cover by themselves within quite a while by providing either medigap energy or maybe every one of the power to your home or maybe company. Developing your personal solar power panels, taking part in authorities refunds as well as net metering, during which a person sell untouched power time for the energy organization, may lower the price tag on utilizing a new green solar panel technology method. Furthermore, green solar power programs call for small to help no maintenance following installing, as a general rule have no going elements. The main selling point of employing natural solar panel technology is utterly enviromentally friendly. Using polar ice caps dwindling aside in addition to weather adjustments making destructive storms in the world, it really is more and more evident in which steps need to be arrive at lower global heating along with each of our addiction to fossil energy sources.
