This report examines the effects of resource depletion on future coal prices and evaluates the validity and uncerainty of critical coal resource data.

We collected data and observations regarding coal supply and availability through interviews with coal companies and geological surveys, and through reviews of the available literature. of a correction for the effects of the depletion of reserves of natural resources.

A measure of productivity in coal mining starts with the production function: Q ¼ fX. We find that the depletion of natural resources requires an annual increase of input use of %.

The results in the present paper show the importance of correcting the Solow Residual for the effects of coal reserves on extraction by: of a correction for the effects of the depletion of reserves of natural resources.

Under the high resource assumptions, natural gas prices are considerably lower, making natural gas more likely to displace coal regardless of whether or not the CPP takes effect. These projections are also helpful in assessing the separate impacts of lower natural gas prices and the implementation of the CPP on coal-fired generation.

Apart from the ecological effects, resource depletion also has serious economic effects. The price for goods, including natural resources, is determined through supply and demand on the world market.

The supply is likely to drop in the future since resources will become scarcer. Moreover, the costs of resource depletion will not be borne equally. The bottom half of the income distribution—both across and within countries—will suffer most from the direct effects, which will include higher prices of food, fuel, and fiber and lower rates of growth and job creation.

Impacts of Resource Depletion Today. Considering the impact of concentrated coal use in the power sector to displace dispersed and inefficient coal use in household and other sectors, the uncertainty of coal use in coal-to-chemical because of low oil price, as well as the saturation of energy-intensive industries like steel and cement, coal consumption can very likely reach its peak in China.

Coal • Predicting future coal production is difficult because the reserves are still large in comparison with oil and gas.

• Estimated remaining coal resources: 1 trillion tons * (~ GtC emissions) • Baseline scenario assumes current annual growth continues for next 50 years, then starts a gradual decline. 1) Compare asset's book value to undiscounted value of its future cash flows. If book value future cash flows - do nothing; if book value > future cash flows, impairment as occurred -> writedown 2) Amount of writedown is difference between the book value and the "fair" value.

FACTORS AFFECTING COAL PRODUCTION AND USE Chapter I I shows a range of projectionsfor coal use. Actual growth will depend on the decisions of users and producers. The major factors affecting these decisions are the cost, convenience, and availability of coaI relative to competing fuels.

The question of how much American coal is left in the ground and how easy it will be to get out is only one of the many issues around coal as a replacement energy source that are tackled in Richard Heinberg’s new book, Blackout: Coal, Climate, and the Last Energy Crisis” (New Society: June, ).

Oil Depletion in the United States and the World. The development of modern industrial societies was possible because of cheap and abundant energy in the form of fossil fuels. Today oil accounts for 40% of the primary energy production; natural gas contributes 23%, and coal’s contribution is also 23%.

Resources depletion refers to the situation where the consumption of natural resources is faster than it can be replenished. The natural resources of a nation can be divided as renewable resources and non renewable resources.

The natural resources contribute at large to the economic development of a nation. The economic effect of resource depletion would be shortage of resources leading to: 1 High rate of inflation which is rising prices and too much money chasing few goods.

This will lead to a cycle of Inflation in all goods even when they are in abdundance leading to hyper inflation which would in turn dampen the economy after a point and will bring all ill effects of inflation. Resource depletion is when humans use a resource at a rate that's not sustainable, or when the resource cannot be replenished fast enough.
