    Has the time come for the world to give up on what it’s relied on the most, fossil fuels? “Oil fuels the modern world. No other substance can equal the enormous impact which the use of oil has had on so many people, so rapidly, in so many ways, and in so many places around the world” (Duplar 1). There are facts showing that fossil fuels are damaging the environment, people’s health, and even our own wallets. People say that we need to go green, and find new energy sources that are affordable, reliable, and don’t damage the environment. These are the first steps towards and cleaner earth, and they are already taking place, but the entire world needs to lend a helping hand in order to solve the global energy crisis. “Procrastination is not an option. Scientist agree if we wait ten, twenty, or fifty years, the problem will be much more difficult to address and the consequences for us will be much that much more serious” (Duplar 2). There is much truth to this; we can already see the harmful effects of fossil fuels on the environment, and example would be global warming, which is the rise in the earth’s temperature. Action must be done immediately, why should future generations suffer for the damage that we have created? People need to start thinking about what is good for the environment and it’s future, for our own good.

    In today’s world it’s our responsibility as the population to create Sustainability with the earth’s resources. There are only so many resources on earth like timber, food, petroleum etc. to go around. The more that we use and take in the less it becomes available for us to consume.

    With today’s growing population, resource consumption is becoming a huge concern. It is important that humans realize what is best for both our present and future generation, and what is best for our planet. We must preserve certain areas from being destroyed to keep their natural beauty. We should also conserve resources, so they can continue to flourish, but also so we can continue to live our lives without depleting these resources. Every individual unit of the environment works together to maintain a balance that supports the cycle of life. Humans must co-exist in a positive way with these units. We should live in a way that does not exploit any part of nature. We should not only respect and sustain the environment for our own benefit and for future generations, but also because nature itself is good on its own.…

    Natural resources refer to those materials and resources that occur naturally in a locality, such as minerals, forests, wildlife and fertile land. Appropriate utilization of natural resources play an important role in leading a nation towards the economic and industrial development stage. Many nations across the globe are continually growing and prospering by rightly managing their natural resources to extract economic gain out of them. Many success stories have arisen from natural resource wealth. Norway has long utilized its Petroleum Fund to stabilize its oil wealth, providing economic security for the country. More recently, Chile’s Copper Stabilization Fund has proven to be a successful element in the country’s economic recovery since the mid 1980s. In both cases, resource dependence presented challenges that were properly managed, resulting in economic prosperity. Also, Saudi Arabia's vast oil resources have shaped the kingdom's development. Similarly in World War 2 Japan had attacked China to get China’s natural resources to fund its economy. Land and natural resources are key assets for economic growth and development.…
