Natural resources are any materials found in nature that are useful to people.
The richest countries are usually the ones with access to the most natural resources
Not all places on earth have the same amount of natural resources
Some have a lot
Some have very little
So is water.
Some natural resources are renewable. This means they can be use over and over again and will not be used up!
We need to be careful, though, because even though they are renewable, both air and water can become polluted.
Air is an important renewable resource.
Some examples of non-renewable natural resources are the fossil fuels that we use to power our country such as oil, coal, and natural gas.
Other natural resources are NOT renewable. This means there is only a certain amount of them and they will eventually run out.
A lot of people are worried about the impact that humans are having on our natural resources.
People destroy nature to make way for industry, are using up most of the non-renewable resources and pollute and poison the air we breathe and water we drink.
HOW TO SAVE THE WORLD:
However, there are also many people working to protect our natural resources and researching new ways we can make energy and goods without hurting our planet and what it provides us.
