How do humans cause the depletion of a resource?

    Humans cause the depletion of a resource by over using such resources. For example, once all the oil in the planet is extracted and used for fuel, that resource would be depleted caused by humans. This is happening not only with oil, but many other resources such as precious metals and helium are being depleted by humans as well. This process of depletion can be stemmed by using resources in moderation, and allowing time between uses of the resource for it to accumulate and regenerate a bit. This can take millions of years for some resources, such as oil.
