What is an inexhaustible resource?


An inexhaustible resource is one where the supply never runs out. One crucial example of an inexhaustible resource is sunlight. No matter how much sunlight is used for solar energy, this particular resource is never depleted.

Inexhaustible resources play a crucial role in conservation. By using these types of resources for energy, society avoids depleting the available supply of non-renewable resources such as coal and petroleum. Other important inexhaustible, or renewable, resources are water and wind. One good reason to use inexhaustible resources for society's energy needs is that they do not produce carbon emissions that accelerate global warming trends.
