A non renewable resources is natural resource that cannot be re-made,

regrown or regenerated on a scale-comparative to its consumption.

Examples of non renewable resources are fossil fuels such as coal,

petroleum and natural gas as they do not naturally reform at a rate

that makes the way we use them sustainable.

A non renewable resource is always drawn down with anabolic process

that use up energy.


Natural resources such as social, oil or natural gas cannot be

replaced as fast as they are consumed. Eventually they will be used


Non renewable resources have a high carbon content because their

origin lies in the photosynthetic ability of plants. The fuels release

this carbon back into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide, the rate at

which the fuels are being burnt result in a rise in the concentration

of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere thereby causing greenhouse effect.
