Preserving non-renewable resources
Context: Non-renewable resources are resources available only in limited quantity. Metals, coal and oil are notable examples. They can be useful, even essential, for building a sustainable society, but if our way of life always requires that more and more of these materials be extracted, we will eventually run out. Dependency on more at that point would be disastrous.
