Natural Resources...Plenty or Running Out?

Recommended Posts

This was being mentioned in the "Having kids" thread. Thought it was taking that one off course and there is enough to discuss about it to be able to start a new thread.

its the greed of certain resources that prevents us from opening new resources which is better than the last. this prevent us from envolving example the oil industry i can name many fuels far safer and plentifull to preplace dead animals but no the big cats in the oil industry have ties to the goverment which will prevent anything of the like to happen

I think the world will have most of the natural resources to be able to sustain life for a long time. As far as food goes alot of countries including the US throw out alot of food all the time. Sure there are alot of strving countries out there. Yes, the environment plays a major factor in the famine. But alot of it has to do with politics and the leaders of the country. Many don't worry about feeding the people or stuff like that. One recent example is that of the Taliban. They didn't give 2 shits about all the people starving out there. They did nothing to improve what little schooling they had that might have helped them in the future with building dams planting crops etc.

yeah, they're obviously not getting bigger. i think the biggest natural resource that i worry about is our vegetation, and how much plastic and metal, glass, ceramics, cement, nuclear radiation etc. are choking it out and altering their evolution. water, yeah it's important too, then oil. we're pretty well along to fucked, it's soooo complicated, i for 1 cannot put my arms around the whole thing. it'll probably not stop me from having kids if i meet a cool enough chick, and she wants to:).

Well oil industry or no, hydrogen power is in development (which is a potentially limitless fuel source, as well as no more expensive than fossil fuels, i believe) and the oil industry can only exist as long as oil is in supply, which may not be very long. Already in Iceland they are implementing or will soon implement hydrogen powered buses, and they are planning on integrating hydrogen power into their society.

 

But eventually, barring the extinction of the human race, people will have to colonize other parts of the solar system (such as the Moon, Mars, or Ganymede) because, of course, the earth can only hold so many people. It makes me sad I won't be alive then, although if I were I would probably take it for granted.
