How long will natural resources be around?
Earth's resources can be classified according to how long supplied might last.
Renewable resources are resources that can be replaces by natural processes in a relatively short amount of time.
Nonrenewable resources are natural resources that are being used up faster than they can be replaced by natural processes.
Because they are renewables resource include air, water, living things, and certain energy resources such as solar, geothermal, wind, water, and biomass
Nonrenewable resources form slowly, usually over millions of years. If they are used faster that they form, they will run out.
Nonrenewable resources include fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, natural gas, and minerals.
These resources are typically limited and nonrenewable due to factors such as the long amounts of time required for them to form or the environment in which resources were created forming once or only rarely in Earth's history.
We'd have about 115 years of coal production, and roughly 50 years of both oil and natural gas remaining.
