Non-renewable natural capital Natural resources that cannot be replenished within a timescale of the same order as that at which they are taken from the environment and used; For example, fossil fuels. cebitz. n coScie m
    • 7. 3.2: Resources - natural capital 3.2.3: Explain the dynamic nature of the concept of a resource. The resources we use change over time For centuries wood was the main source of energy for most of Europe as well as the rest of the World.
