Think of a few renewable resources and mention how their stock may get affected by overuse.
Renewable Resources: Solar energy, water (hydro) energy, wind energy and to some extent, plants and shrubs.
While it is true that renewable energy resources are available in plenty and can be used repeatedly. However, its overuse can have some negative effects. In case of plants and vegetables, as the growth will increase to meet the increasing demand, it will have adverse impact on the underground water table and mineral content. This might lead to delay in growth of plants and vegetables. Secondly, while solar energy and wind energy is available in abundance, the stock of hydro energy is being affected by over use. This is because with the change in climate, rains are becoming lesser especially in tropical regions. This leads to decrease in the water levels of rivers which affect the production of hydro energy.
