Nonrenewable resources are resources that have a limited supply. A lot of our fossil fuels, such as oil, are nonrenewable resources. In other words, if we keep using them, they will eventually run out.
All forms of energy are a natural resource. Energy resources are categorized as renewable or nonrenewable. Renewable energy resources can be replenished over a relatively short period of time and include resources such as solar, wind, water hydro , biomass and geothermal. Nonrenewable energy resources are available in limited supply and cannot renew at sufficient rates compared to the use of the resource. Examples include coal, nuclear, oil and natural gas. Where does the energy used in our home come from? How is it produced?
Key words: Endogenous growth, innovation, non-renewable resources, knife-edge conditions, robustness, limits to growth. The aim of this article is to review issues related to the incorporation of scarce natural resources in the theory of economic growth and development. More specifically, we shall concentrate on the role of non-renewable resources. A nonrenewable resource is a natural resource the amount of which on earth is finite and which has no natural regeneration process at least not within a relevant time scale. Hence, the stock of a non-renewable resource is depletable. Fossil fuels as well as many non-energy minerals are examples. A renewable resource is also available only in limited supply, but its stock is replenished by a natural regeneration process.
Financing for development requires developing countries to step up their domestic revenue mobilisation. A major issue in this context is the taxation of non-renewable natural resources. Recent DIE publications suggest that many low-income and lower-middle-income countries may be failing to tap the full revenue potential of these resources. Public opinion in resource-rich countries is pressing for the renegotiation of investment agreements and tax regimes in the light of soaring commodity prices. As extractive industries are characterised by a unique combination of properties, governments should treat them differently from the rest of the economy. A broader concept of sustainability would take account of these externalities, including compensatory payments, for instance.
A non-renewable resource also called a finite resource is a natural resource that cannot be readily replaced by natural means at a quick enough pace to keep up with consumption. The original organic matter, with the aid of heat and pressure, becomes a fuel such as oil or gas. Earth minerals and metal ores , fossil fuels coal , petroleum , natural gas and groundwater in certain aquifers are all considered non-renewable resources, though individual elements are always conserved except in nuclear reactions.
That's like asking the difference between having an endless supply and having a limited supply. Will this planet eventually run out of oil? So oil is a nonrenewable resource.
As we noted in Chapter 12, the reserves of non-renewable resources are inexorably diminished as they are extracted from the environment and used in the human economy. This is because non-renewable resources are finite in quantity and their stocks do not regenerate after they are mined.
