**Yesterday we discussed ways humans modify their environment, looking at things like mining and deforestation. But why are people doing that? To gather resources. Mining for minerals or drilling for oil that is on their land that they can sell for profit or chopping down trees to make things. What is the difference between renewable resources and nonrenewable resources? Trees grow back, but oil doesn't.
