Wind is a natural perpetual resource

What are Perpetual Resources?

Perpetual resources are renewable resources that cannot be exhausted, regardless of their rate of use. Perpetual resources are natural resources, because they are provided by nature without human intervention. But not all natural resources are perpetual resources: some natural resources can cease to be renewable if used in excess or unsustainably.

Examples of perpetual resources

- Wind.
- Solar energy.
- Waves and Tides.
- Geothermal Energy.

Natural resources are those elements provided by nature without human intervention and which can be exploited by mankind to satisfy certain needs.

Natural elements are those elements than have been produced by nature, without the intervention of man.

Natural elements can be grouped in:

  • Water
  • Air
  • Soil
  • Plants
  • Animals

We have to take into account that man can produce clons of plants or water made in a laboratory. These man made elements are not natural elements.
