Why Do We Need To Conserve Natural Resources?

There are many answers to this question as natural resources are an important, almost essential, aspect in almost all areas of life as we know it. The main factor to consider in this question is the fact that these natural resources are just that... Natural! We cannot manufacture them and so when they run out they are gone. Even the ones that we have some control over, for example trees, will take many years to replace; there is no quick fix when it comes to natural resources. Then you have fossil fuels which we consider essential resources in the world today; these are even more precious. There is no way we can replace such resources in our lifetime or even that of our great, great grand children. Fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, take millions of years to form.

There are instances where resources can be used freely, but in most cases, our natural assets are in need of serious conservation. For example, cutting down trees contributes to the greenhouse effect. Some scientists believe that the greenhouse effect could have disastrous effects on the world if we do not take preventative action soon.

Living without natural resources would be difficult, if not impossible. Although we would obviously find it hard to live without everyday items (paper, furniture etc), the less-considered uses of natural resources such as medicines would also be missed significantly. Millions of dollars have been spent trying to find substances which can cure illness and disease, if these were depleted many millions of dollars more would need to be invested with no guarantee that another cure could be found.

Natural resources like forests,water resources,land resources, e.t.c. Are limited and are available to us only for a short period of time.These are conventional (most of them ) and we largely dependent upon them,hence wastage of there resources may in future lead to dearth of resources....therefore there is a great need for us to conserve resources.

We should conserve our resources because as we use them we are participating to global warming by all the harmful gases coming from the factories and cars, and as the population increases the resources decrease!

We need to conserve natural resources as they are limited and unevenly distributed all over the world. Once they'll finish off our life would come to an end. For it's conservation government has taken may steps like creating programs like sustainable development and setting up of national parks and sanctuaries.

We need to conserve as natural resources are a finite thing and until we find a way to replace them we will be in trouble once they are gone.

Conserve for the right reasons, to build a foundation for this country to have the means to create alternative energy. Not to stop production and be dependent on other countries. These carbon footprint global warming scare tactics are destroying us.

Because we are stripping the planet bare and killing it and all the life on it ( including ourselves) in the process.

Well we need to develop a sustainable economic development model that ensures the conservation of our natural resources so that other generations can benefit from them. With no natural predators human beings have come to dominate the planet as the most powerful species and exhibit intelligence that has yet been unprecedented by other species that had dominated the planet before us. We are lucky to be able to have access to the natural resources and it is our responsibility that we do not destroy the natural flora and fauna of this planet and save it for the coming generations. It is our prime responsibility to leave it better than we have found it, instead of choking it and leave the planet incapable of supporting complex Biological lives.
