When will the Earth run out of it's Natural Resources?

Oil, Gas etc...

Report as

Matter can't be created or destroyed so technically the earth will always have resources, but doesn't mean we will be able to use them. New resources appear on the earth all the time they rain down during meteor showers and other cosmic events. Or are formed through fusion and other natural occurring phenomenon.
But I guess to truly answer your question it would be in about 500 million years when our sun goes BOOM!

In a long time. People say we will but there are lots of undiscovered islands and places that have not been drilled for their resources. So likewise long after we all are gone

Oil, 50 to 100 years. Natural gas, 50 years after oil runs out. Coal, 80 to 150 years.

IDK. We need natural resources, so our economy will die, then humans might die, and all that's left are animals...

I can't wait until those polluting resources we use to get energy runs out! We'll finally have to use wind and solar power. But I know humans too well that we'll have a war that will kill all the life on Earth before it gets even close to running out.
