Slide 1

The natural resources are materials which appear naturally in different environmental conditions. Classification of natural resources on the basis of originBiotic AbioticThose we get from earths biosphere. Can be obtained in the raw form or by cultivation Petroleum, natural gas, wood, fruits, wax, crops, vegetables, fish etc.Minerals, metals and other non-living material - salt, sand, gravel, gold, coal, diamond, silver etc. Some renewable resources are wind and tidal energy, water, air, sunlight, plants & vegetation.Potential resources like Hydrogen has the potential to be used as fuel in the future.

5Threats To Our Resources Man Induced Disasters.

5 Worst Man-Made Disasters in History 2011 wheresjenny.comMapping The Future: Are We Running Out Of Resources?Bhopal Gas Tragedy, India - On 2.12.1984 when the Union Carbide India Ltd pesticide plant had a gas leak. Thousands of people died within the first hours of the leak apart from other injuries survivors would endure such as blindness and organ failure. Bhopal is one of the world's worst industrial disasters.Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, Gulf of Mexico:It's the worst and largest oil spill in human history. It started on 20.4. 2010 when an explosion on BP's Deepwater Horizon oilrig killed 11 workers, injured 17 others, and left the well gushing oil. Chernobyl Meltdown, Ukraine : On April 26, 1986, Reactor No. 4 in theChernobyl nuclear power plantexploded. Fallout from the radiation was estimated to be higher than both atom bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Chernobyl became the first poster-child on the risks of nuclear power.Fukushima Meltdown, Japan: A 9.0 earthquake on 11.3.2011 created a tsunami that resulted in the damage of three nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant that hadviolated safety requirements.Global Warming, Third Planet from the Sun:Global warming is one of the most overlooked and ongoing man-made disasters that has the greatest long-term impact on humanity. Excessive amounts of greenhouse gases, particularly CO2, introduced into the atmosphere have increased average global temperatures forecasting a number ofdire consequences. Impacts from rising sea levels, desertification, and damage from intense super storms like Hurricane Katrina cannot be overlooked.

6The Conservation of Our Natural Resources

Government support

Reforestation

Wash car with a bucket of soapy water not hose.

Environmentally friendly hybrid vehicles

Terrace farming Solar power

2011 wheresjenny.comMapping The Future: Are We Running Out Of Resources?President Roosevelt had called upon the governors of all the states and territories to meet him in conference at the White House, to consult and confer, for conserving natural resources, not national. He planned to direct the organization of public sentiment, and the formulation of laws by which all such resources, whether in land or in water, whether national, state, or privately owned, shall be administered in a way to preserve intact or to increase the principal of them, and to give to each succeeding generation a larger wealth from the interest.2. Control deforestation, educate people, reforestation, recycling program.3. Exercise restraint when watering your lawn, grow plants that are native to your natural environment, Wash your car with a bucket of soapy water instead of a garden hose, install energy-efficient showerheads and faucets. 4. Go for bio mining, curb discharge of chemicals. Switch to environmentally friendly hybrid vehicles. Ahybrid vehicleis a vehicle that uses two or more distinct power sources to move the vehicle.5. Organic farming, crop rotation, Contour or terrace farming, enrich soil fertility by suing natural ways not by pesticides.6. Crop rotation, polyculture, counter, terrace and step farming should be practiced. Terrace farming is an ancient agricultural practice used to grow crops on the steep sides of mountains and hills. This process grows crops requiring large amounts of water. Terraces collect and distribute water while reducing soil erosion.7. Conserve natural resources by switching to solar power.
