Abstract: The problem the world faces is that many of the resources that are truly threatened are the renewable ones, not, as so often assumed, the non-renewables. Many of the earth’s renewable resources are being insanely over-exploited, and humanity seems incapable of agreeing on rules for their protection. Fish, large mammals, fresh water, timber, clean air – the list is endless. In contrast, many non-renewable reserves have become so plentiful that their prices are presently at historic lows. The question is: how has it come about that our non-renewable reserves are seemingly inexhaustible?
