A renewable resource is a natural resource which can replenish with the passage of time, either through biological reproduction or other naturally recurring processes.A natural resource may exist as a separate entity such as fresh water, and air, as well as a living organism such as a fish, or it may exist in an alternate form which must be processed to obtain the resource such as metal ores, oil, and most forms of energy.Natural resources occur naturally within environments that exist relatively undisturbed by humanity, in a natural form.The exploitation of natural resources started to emerge in the 19th century as natural resource extraction developed.Complete ecological units that function as natural systems without massive civilized...

Although there may be an abundance of this resource, these companies have not been using natural gases sustainably.The water contamination and the methane that is emitted into the atmosphere due to fracking make it equally as harmful as coal burning.Industries are able to move onto land near people’s homes and contaminate their air and water without any regulations whatsoever.If the United States continues to use natural gases at the rate that it does now, every recoverable source of natural gas will have been used up within the next 80 years.Many people who live near fracking sites may be forced to leave their homes on account of high levels of water and air contamination.

Also, until all the undergoing projects are not completed and the availability of water is not ensured by the government: the threat of water ending in the next 50 years is not removed, the government should install meters at all the consumer points to keep a check on the amount of water being utilized and charged for the number of units used just the way electricity is charged.The rapid population growth of the country increases the stress on the water resources by increasing the production of desalinated water which results costly and decreases the production of ground water.She said that during 2013, Abu Dhabi has collaboratively worked with the water community of Abu Dhabi in formulating a Water Resource Strategy, spread over the nex...

Due to high salinity sea water has to be desalinated before using as potable water.Another technique adding water resources is “water harvesting”.All in all the natural water resources are already exhausted in a great extent, so that a carefully organized water management is absolutely essential.There it has become a major political issue and the various peace agreements that have been proposed or signed in recent years all include water.” The author of this quote reveals the critical situation in the Middle East where water is a scarce resource.Higher charges on water could enable the countries to modernize their water distribution systems and thus reduce high water losses.

“Pollutants are harmful chemical or physical substances released into the atmosphere, a water source, the soil or a component of the biosphere” (Saier, 2006:205) Particle pollutants when released in the air are very lethal, and could cause severe damage to the human body.Humans are known to solely depend on earth’s resources such as; oil, forests, water, energy and others.Though carrying capacity is ultimately determined by natural constraints, Cohen stressed the role of human choices about lifestyle and consumption in determining how many people the earth can sustain within those constraints.There are various types of pollution, such as; air pollution, water pollution, land pollution and others.Humans still contaminate their air, water ...

In most electric power plants, water is heated and converted into steam, which drives a turbine-generator to produce electricity.The remaining natural gas is further refined to remove impurities and water vapor, and then transported in pressurized pipelines.Environmental problems associated with oil shale recovery include: large amounts of water needed for processing, disposal of toxic waste water, and disruption of large areas of surface lands.The second loop is kept at a lower pressure, allowing the water to boil and create steam, which is used to power the turbine-generator and produce electricity.A non-renewable resource is a natural resource which cannot be produced, re-grown, regenerated, or reused on a scale which can sustain its ...
