A resource that nature will take a long time (hundreds to millions of years) to replenish or may never replenish.
A resource that cannot be replaced in the environment (i.e., fossil fuels) because it forms at a rate far slower than its consumption.
A natural resource such as oil, co...
A natural resource from the Earth that exists in limited supply, like oil or coal. Once this supply is used up, the resource is gone forever.
a finite resource that cannot be replaced once it is used (e.g., petroleum, minerals).
a natural material that is considered finite in amount (e.g., coal, copper, petroleum). This is because it takes a great length of time to form (longer than a lifetime, maybe more).
a natural resource that cannot be regenerated except over long periods of time
A resource that is limited. Fossil fuels (oil, coal, and natural gas) are considered nonrenewable resources because once they are used up we cannot create more of them.
a resource that can't be readily replaced once it is used
A natural resource such as oil, copper or iron that once used cannot renew itself—at least not in this geological age. Other resources such as fish or trees can renew themselves if not overused and so are called renewable resources.
Resources such as oil, coal, natural gas, gold and copper, that cannot be replaced after use.
natural resource that cannot be reused or replaced
A natural resource that canâ€™t be replenished because the rate of formation is slower than the rate of consumption. Fossil fuels, metals, other minerals and groundwater are nonrenewable.
a resource that is available in fixed amounts on the earth and can be totally depleted because (1) it is not replenished by natural processes or (2) it is used more quickly than it can be replenished.
resources that are not replaced or regenerated naturally within a period of time that is useful; this includes fossil fuels, uranium and other minerals.
A resource that is in limited supply and can't be replenished by natural processes, at least not for thousands of years or more. Fossil fuels are nonrenewable resources. .
n: Resource that exists in a fixed amount (stock) in various places in the earth's crust and has the potential for renewal only by geological, physical, and chemical processes taking place over hundreds of millions to billions of years. Examples are copper, aluminum, coal, and oil. We classify these resources as exhaustible because we are extracting and using them at a much faster rate than they were formed.
A resource that can be harvested only once nonvenomous (adj) – Nonpoisonous
