World3 nonrenewable resource sector

Résumé
The World3 nonrenewable resource sector is the portion of the World3 model that simulates nonrenewable resources. The World3 model is a simulation of human interaction with the environment that was designed in the 1970s to predict population and living standards over the next 100 years. The nonrenewable resource sector of the World3 model was used to calculate the cost and usage rates of nonrenewable resources. In the context of this model, nonrenewable resources are resources that there are a finite amount of on Earth, such as iron ore, oil, or coal. This model assumes that regardless of how much money is spent on extraction, there is a finite limit for the amount of nonrenewable resources that can be extracted. Overview The model combines all possible nonrenewable resources into one aggregate variable, . This combines both energy resources and non-energy resources. Examples of nonrenewable energy resources would include oil and coal. Examples of material nonrenewa
