As the world's population soars, so does its consumption, and as a result we are stretching many of our natural resources to their limits. The assumption is that human ingenuity and market forces will prevent supplies from running out: we could create better or cheaper extraction methods, recycle materials, find alternatives to non-renewable sources, or reduce consumption. If we fail to correct current trends when can we expect our most valuable resources to run out?
