Natural Resources: Time, Space and Spirit--Keys to Scientific Literacy Series.
Many experts have predicted a global crisis for the end of the twentieth century because of dwindling supplies of natural resources such as minerals, oil, gas, and soil. This booklet considers three aspects of natural resources, time, space, and spirit. Time refers to a sense of history; space refers to geography; and spirit refers to life and thought. Several chapters on the history and concepts of natural resources utilization, a time line related to the concept, a map of the important geography related to this concept, a glossary of important terms, and a list of several study suggestions are included.
