Which of the following is a non-renewable resource?

A

Tidal energy

B

Wind

C

Petroleum

D

Solar energy

Answer

A non-renewable resource does not renew itself at a sufficient rate for sustainable economic extraction in meaningful human time-frames. Earth minerals, metal ores, fossil fuels and groundwater in certain aquifers are all non-renewable resources.
In contrast, resources such as timber and wind (used to power energy conversion systems) are considered renewable resources.
