|No renewable resources|
They are the set of raw materials, energies and existing means of production in the nature that can be used and be operated by the man, this talks about to things or phenomena that have utility and require effort to obtain themselves. Through history the natural resources have modified depending at the time at which they were used this must to different factors:
They are those resources that they pretend to be inexhaustible, without concerning the amount of productive activities that the human being realises with them as well as it is it the solar energy, which although is impossible his exhaustion this one is possible. Of equal way in which the air at some time can be exhausted if we did not take care to cooperate for the production of the same.
They are those resources that are run out. Between these they are the minerals, as much metals and chemical agents that they are directly of industrial use, as they are it the fossil fuels (coal, gas, petroleum, disturb, etc). The mining provided the materials on which many of the civilizations of the past were based and many of the present ones.
The economic importance is in which it stops any economic system must reunite three factors which are earth (natural resources and raw material), work (manpower, human effort) and capital (financial Resources, infrastructure and technology). If some of these three factors is not present, a production is not carried out. The natural resources are high-priority then without them is not possible the existence of any type of activity economic and much less to maintain a as complex system as the one who today we have, sees the possibility of promoting a viable economic system, this means the operation of the natural resources accompanied by its renovation; an example is the operation of the forests accompanied by the action of planting new trees.
The environment is the source of all the natural resources used by the today man, and is indispensable to have an attitude of defense, protection and improvement towards him. The natural resources have great importance for the family, because they make the satisfaction possible of the vital needs like the feeding, the dress, the footwear, the health and the house… We can classify the natural resources in two great groups: renewable natural resources and nonrenewable natural resources.
