By resource is meant any physical entity, which has limited availability. These resources occur in their natural form. Few examples of natural resources are: •Air, wind and atmosphere •Plants (Flora) •Animals (Fauna) •Agronomy (the science of using plants for food, fuel, feed and fiber) •Wildlife •Forestry and Agroforestry •Coal and fossil fuels •Range and pasture •Soils •Water, oceans, lakes and rivers Something that people generally arent aware of, is that everything we use in everyday life are derived from natural resources, for example, milk which comes from cows - animals are a natural resource. We use water, food and vegetables that comes from plants, salt which is a mineral are some of the other natural resources. Wood that we get from tree is a natural resource. It can be used to build a house, make paper, burn in fireplaces and in stoves for cooking, etc. Man utilizes these resources in various ways. These resources are processed further so as to be made suitable for our needs. The table below is an example that shows in what way the resources have been utilized.

Are We Running Out of Resources?
 
04:08
Prof. Steve Horwitz addresses the common belief that the world is running out of natural resources. Instead, there are economic reasons why we will never run out of many resources. In a free market system, prices signal scarcity. So as a resource becomes more scarce, it becomes more expensive, which incentivizes people to use less of it and develop new alternatives, or to find new reserves of that resource that were previously unknown or unprofitable. We have seen throughout history that the human mind's ability to innovate, coupled with a free market economic system, is an unlimited resource that can overcome the limitations we perceive with natural resources.

The End Of The Oil Age, How Much Is Left And What Will Happen When We Run Out
 
04:19
Imagine the day when the world is turned up side down, when mankind is plunged in to a mad max style future, a dystopian future of war, famine and financial chaos. This is the day when the worlds most precious resource runs out. **REMEMBER TO SUBSCRIBE FOR MUCH MORE TO COME** FʘLLʘW THE VENDOR 101 Subscribe - https://www.youtube.com/c/TheVendor101 Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+TheVendor101 Twitter - https://twitter.com/thevendor101 What we use it for- Oil is the life blood that is pumped though our modern world, with out it we could not fly to popular holiday destinations, travel to work in the comfort of our vehicles or maybe even watch this video on YouTube, plus many more little perks of modern life. We rely on oil to power many applications within our lives and as of early 2015, the IEA Oil Market Report forecast the average demand would be 34 billion barrels of oil for the year. At this rate, how long can we go on pumping oil out of the ground without exhausting our supplies? Were does it come from- Oil is formed according to a leading theory, by dead organic material accumulating at the bottom of the oceans, riverbeds or swamps. Over time this material was gradually covered by sediment, Millions of years of this process caused the sediment to grow heavier and heavier, resulting heat and pressure which transforms the organic layer into a dark and waxy substance known as kerogen. Some types of kerogen gradually changed in to oil or natural gas and collectively these are known as hydrocarbons or fossil fuels. This process according to scientists probably takes at least a million years. How much is left- According to the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, there are 1.3 trillion barrels of proven oil reserve left in the world's major fields, which at present rates of consumption should last 40 years. This has meant that governments and oil companies have been forced to look for sources of oil in more difficult locations, such as the deep sea. However this requires intensive and costly processing. The challenge facing engineers is extracting the oil and gas from these deep locations. At present much of it is so difficult to get at that it actually takes more energy to extract it than it gives back in use. So there is plenty more oil available, it's just really hard to get to and find. What will happen to the world- Some peak oil theorists believe that we have already passed the point of maximum oil production, what is clear is that oil is getting harder to find and extract, and this is reflected in rising prices. Those price increases encourage users to decrease consumption and inventors to create alternatives. Most likely, petrol and diesel use will disappear by legal mandate once a clearly-superior alternative is developed. But what if a superior alternative isn't developed? What if we run out of oil, natural gases and run out of time to build nuclear power plants. What if we run out of energy to fuel our modern society's? What will happen to man kind? Well life as we know it would come to an end. All the everyday items made from oil would no longer be produced, Virtually all transport would stop and so would nearly all manufacturing. This would result in Food production coming to a halt, millions would freeze in colder climates and masses of people would be unemployed, meaning that they could not purchase the increasing costly price of the most basic foods. Eventually millions upon millions would starve to death. The replacements- However, thanks to extremely clever and persistent inventors, there are many other replacement energy technologies that are being used and are being developed. Hopefully, by the time we do finally run out of oil, then we will already have a superior alternative to the black gold.

Historically, almost all of the energy that humans use has been directly or indirectly generated by the sun, whether that be food energy from plants, wind energy, direct solar energy, or fossil fuels. Stan looks into these different sources, and talks about how humanity will continue to use energy in the future as populations grow and energy resources become more scarce.

What are NATURAL RESOURCES? What do NATURAL RESOURCES mean? NATURAL RESOURCES meaning - NATURAL RESOURCES definition - NATURAL RESOURCES explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Natural resources are all that exists without the actions of humankind. This includes all natural characteristics such as magnetic, gravitational, and electrical properties and forces. On earth we include sunlight, atmosphere, water, land (includes all minerals) along with all vegetation and animal life that naturally subsists upon or within the heretofore identified characteristics and substances. Particular areas such as "The rainforest in Fatu-Hiva" are often characterized by the biodiversity and geodiversity existent in their ecosystems. Natural resources may be further classified in different ways. Natural resources are materials and components (something that can be used) that can be found within the environment. Every man-made product is composed of natural resources (at its fundamental level). A natural resource may exist as a separate entity such as fresh water, and air, as well as a living organism such as a fish, or it may exist in an alternate form which must be processed to obtain the resource such as metal ores, mineral oil, and most forms of energy. There is much debate worldwide over natural resource allocations, this is partly due to increasing scarcity (depletion of resources) but also because the exportation of natural resources is the basis for many economies (particularly for developed nations). Some natural resources such as sunlight and air can be found everywhere, and are known as ubiquitous resources. However, most resources only occur in small sporadic areas, and are referred to as localized resources. There are very few resources that are considered inexhaustible (will not run out in foreseeable future) – these are solar radiation, geothermal energy, and air (though access to clean air may not be). The vast majority of resources are exhaustible, which means they have a finite quantity and can be depleted if managed improperly.

How tipping our natural resources affect humanity | Jim Fowler | TEDxOrangeCoast
 
10:57
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. It is time to define the "Mission of Humanity" and the "Mission of Science", says Jim Fowler. Passionate about the natural world, Jim shares very humbly more than 40 years of exploring animal habitats and nature to explain how we should better communicate about tipping points that we are creating and how we should respect the natural world. Jim Fowler is a zoologist who is known for his work on "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom" and presenting animals to audiences for over 40 years. He was a regular on Johnny Carson, the Today Show, received many awards and recognition from scientific institutions including the Lindbergh Award, National Wildlife Federation, the prestigious Explorer’s Club of which he became the Honorary President and then the Honorary Chairman. Jim's wife is a notable wildlife artist and his son Mark is a documentary film producer. His daughter, Carrie is a wildlife presenter and mother of 2. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

What Is Sustainability?
 
09:44
This video provides a basic definition of sustainability. You’ve probably heard the term “sustainability” in some context or another. It is likely that you’ve used some product or service that was labeled as sustainable, or perhaps you are aware of a campus or civic organization that focuses on sustainability. You may recognize that sustainability has to do with preserving or maintaining resources—we often associate sustainability with things like recycling, using renewable energy sources like solar and wind power, and preserving natural spaces like rainforests and coral reefs. However, unless you have an inherent interest in sustainability, you probably haven’t thought much about what the term actually means. Simply put, sustainability is the capacity to endure or continue. If a product or activity is sustainable, it can be reused, recycled, or repeated in some way because it has not exhausted all of the resources or energy required to create it. Sustainability can be broadly defined as the ability of something to maintain itself. Biological systems such as wetlands or forests are good examples of sustainability since they remain diverse and productive over long periods of time. Seen in this way, sustainability has to do with preserving resources and energy over the long term rather than exhausting them quickly to meet short-term needs or goals. The term sustainability first appeared in forestry studies in Germany in the 1800s, when forest overseers began to manage timber harvesting for continued use as a resource. In 1804, German forestry researcher Georg Hartig described sustainability as “utilizing forests to the greatest possible extent, but still in a way that future generations will have as much benefit as the living generation” (Schmutzenhofer 1992). While our current definitions are quite different and much expanded from Hartig’s, sustainability still accounts for the need to preserve natural spaces, to use resources wisely, and to maintain them in an equitable manner for all human beings, both now and in the future. Sustainability seeks new ways of addressing the relationship between societal growth and environmental degradation, which would allow human societies and economies to grow without destroying or overexploiting the environment or ecosystems in which those societies exist. The most widely quoted definition of sustainability comes from the Brundtland Commission of the United Nations in 1987, which defined sustainability as meeting “the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” But sustainability is about more than just the economic benefits of recycling materials and resources. While the economic factors are important, sustainability also accounts for the social and environmental consequences of human activity. This concept is referred to as the “three pillars of sustainability,” which asserts that true sustainability depends upon three interlocking factors: environmental preservation, social equity, and economic viability. First, sustainable human activities must protect the earth’s environment. Second, people and communities must be treated fairly and equally—particularly in regard to eradicating global poverty and the environmental exploitation of poor countries and communities. And third, sustainability must be economically feasible—human development depends upon the long-term production, use, and management of resources as part of a global economy. Only when all three of these pillars are incorporated can an activity or enterprise be described as sustainable. Some describe this three-part model as: Planet, People and Profit. From pollution, to resource depletion, to loss of biodiversity, to climate change, a growing human footprint is evident. This is not sustainable. We need to act differently if the world and its human and non-human inhabitants are to thrive in the future. Sustainability is about how we can preserve the earth and ensure the continued survival and nourishment of future generations. You and everyone you know will be affected in some way by the choices our society makes in the future regarding the earth and its resources. In fact, your very life may well depend upon those choices.

Rap-Rock Song & Lyrics About Natural Resources -Earth Science for Kids in Elementary & Middle School
 
03:10
This is a Rap - Rock song with lyrics for kids in elementary, middle & high school, about Earth Science. In particular this is a song about natural resources - renewable and non-renewable. More info and free downloads here: http://brambarker.com/scirave/scirave.html#EarthScience · A natural resource can be renewable or nonrenewable. Renewable resources, like trees, replace themselves quickly. Nonrenewable resources, like coal, take thousands or million of years to replace. · People use many resources faster than the earth replaces them. Recycling is a process that treats materials for reuse so that we don’t have to gather as many resources from nature. · All energy resources can be traced back to the sun. The energy resource we use the most are fossil fuels. · Fossil fuels are nonrenewable. They form from the remains of dead organisms that are millions of years old. · Petroleum, or crude oil, is the liquid fossil fuel we get gasoline from. · Gaseous fossil fuels are natural gases. Natural gases power our kitchen stoves. · Coal is a solid fossil fuel that comes from buried, decomposed plant material. Coal is also a rock. · We are always looking for alternative energy sources because obtaining fossil fuels harms the environment. When coal is burned, sulfor dioxide is released and combines with the moisture in the air to make acid rain (sulfuric acid). · Nuclear energy is an alternative source of energy that comes from splitting the nuclei of atoms. This process is called fission, and it releases a lot of energy that is used to run electric generators in power plants. The waste products are easy to contain, but it is hard to know where to bury them. · Solar cells, like the ones on calculators, get their energy directly from the sun. Solar energy does not pollute like many other energy resources, but solar panels are very expensive to make. · Wind is another clean energy source. However, wind turbines are only effective in places where the wind is steady, such as California and north Texas. · Hydroelectric energy uses the power of falling water to make energy. Like wind energy, hydroelectric energy cannot be harnessed everywhere. Dams built to harness this energy also hurt the fish populations and other wildlife. · Underground water is hot enough in some places to evaporate into steam. Geothermal energy uses the steam from natural vents called geysers to power electric generators.

005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

Examples of Renewable Resources
 
02:07
Visit us/get in touch at: http://wastersblog.com/1653/examples-of-renewable-resources/ We provide Examples of Renewable Resources: A renewable resource is one that replaces itself normally at a rate equal to or higher than human usage. The term normally refers to renewable energies, which are self-sustaining in time. There are 5 primary kinds of renewable resources, solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal and biomass. Many countries today are increasing their use of renewable energies to change fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, which take thousands and occasionally millions of years to change themselves, making them non-renewable resources. Examples of non-renewable resources are fossil fuels, like coal, oil, natural gas and soil, rocks, minerals. As soon as they have been gotten rid of from a mine or removed it takes a very long time indeed for them to re-form. We have actually counted on fossil fuels for our energy requires because, traditionally, these fuels have actually been reasonably inexpensive, and rewarding for designers. With increasing fuel costs, issues about ecological effect and growing political concerns about oil providers, renewable energy is acquiring in importance. Renewable resources are natural sources that can not be diminished. Examples consist of solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass and geothermal. Fossil fuels like coal, oil and even clean-burning gas do not exist in unrestricted supply. One day they will be gone. In additional to unending availability, renewable resources create less environmental impact, specifically pollution. Generally speaking renewable resources can be categorized as natural renewable resources and non-organic renewable resources. Plant and animal species are the examples of natural renewable resources whereas gases like oxygen and water are the examples of non-organic renewable resources. Birds or animals getting extinct have now become a regular function. Although some species have actually disappeared from the earth's surface due to natural tragedies, most of them have actually become extinct due to excessive hunting and poaching. Examples of renewable resources are fresh water, fish, and soil. Non-renewable resources such as oil and minerals are irreplaceable, and they do not effectively regrow once they are consumed. Renewable energy describes power created by a renewable source. When the energy is generated, the resource is not exhausted or consumed. They are naturally replenished, and can either be managed so that they last permanently, or their supply is so enormous human beings can never ever meaningfully deplete them. Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energy sources do not release carbon dioxide as a byproduct into the atmosphere. As the quantity of nonrenewable fuel source resources in the world lowers, it is ending up being increasingly essential to discover and make use of alternative fuels. In the US, Alternative Energy is made use of and in general it implies the like renewable, implies any thing besides deriving energy through Fossil Fuel combustion. Alternative energy is likewise a natural deposit ends up being a renewable resource when it is replaced by natural processes at a rate which is quicker than its consumption rate by human beings. Solar radiation, tides, winds and hydroelectricity are the sources which are of lasting accessibility. Renewable resources may include mean products like wood, paper, and leather, if their harvesting is carried out in a sustainable way. So, to summarize, we will certainly just say that renewable resource is a natural resource that can replaced with biological or other natural processes and renewed after a long time. They are part of natural environment however they are threatened by commercial developments and development. Solar radiation, biomass, tides, geothermal, and winds are examples of renewable resources.

Why is sand in short supply? | The Economist
 
02:28
The world uses 40 billion tonnes of sand each year to build cities and towns, but global reserves are running low. We find out why. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Sand is crucial for construction. Much of the global economy relies on it. We use 40 billion tonnes of it each year to build our cities and towns. But global reserves are running low. WHY IS SAND IN SHORT SUPPLY? Industrial sand and gravel are the world’s most extracted materials. They are essential for the production of cement, concrete and asphalt. Global demand for sand has almost doubled since 2004. And as the world becomes more populated and urbanised, demand will continue to rise. 70% of the world’s annual supply of sand goes to Asia. China used more cement between 2011 and 2013 than America did during the entire 20th century. However, the biggest importers are countries covered in sand – the Gulf States. Sand from the Gulf region is too fine for use in construction. The Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai was built using imported Australian sand. Sand is produced from the weathering of rocks, corals and shells. Natural reserves took millions of years to build up. And now they are being depleted more quickly than they can be replenished. But 40 billion tones are needed globally each year. Reserves are being depleted quicker than they can be replenished. Extracting sand takes its toll on the environment. Dredging rivers and seas for sand destroys natural habitats, pollutes waterways, and affects local fishing and farming industries. And our insatiable demand is set to rise. Global construction is forecast to grow 3.9% each year until 2030. When current reserves are depleted, there will still be plenty of sand left in the world. But extracting it will be more difficult, more expensive, and more damaging to the environment. In the future we might need to find a new material to build our concrete jungles.

धरती के अंदर तेल और गैस के भंडारों का पता कैसे लगाया जाता है? How to find oil and gas?
 
10:37
Energy resources have been a very important contribution in the development of human civilization. the changing times, uses of energy also change. now we use petroleum energy, coal power, gas energy, solar energy and electricity. But do you know how the stores of gas and petroleum energy are used, which we use most. And why are they deeper than water in the ground floor? How is petroleum and gas formed and how long does it take? how to find the oil and gas under the sea and the ground? And why are they found in deep depth in the land? How you made? And how long does it take? also know which places where oil and gas are found in India? it is very expensive to find oil and gas, so it is very important for the searchers to find out where the oil and gas are present. how the oil and gas formed inside the earth or how? crude oil and natural gas is formed in millions of years by the destruction of vegetation and marine life and chemical processes inside the Earth. why oil and gas are also lower than water? oil and gas are found in Arab countries such as Iraq and Iran. because there is no water in the ground. Whereas in a country like India, due to high levels of water, oil and gas are found in deep depth. how to find oil and gas under ground or under sea water? The data that is received after this is analyzed with the help of a super computer by the geologist. Which shows how much gas and oil reserves are available on any exploration site. After this, crude oil and gas mines / wells are dug at that place. In India, the work of data analysis is sent to a lab located in Hyderabad. There it is decided that there is no oil and gas and if so how much quantity? And in the same year, the government has approved to explore the reserves of oil and gas in the Siwan district of Bihar. is called "Seismic Exploration". With the help of this technology, the beginning of finding oil and gas started after 1859. Seismic waves are left in the water to help find oil and gas in the water. rock, oil and gas and hit back with the seismometer / hydrophones in the ship. This data is collected and here the geological analyzes of this data with the help of supercomputer. After which they find out the amount of gas and oil reserves present in the amount. The process of extracting oil and gas is started at the same place. How long does it take to search for oil and gas? entire process takes about a year. You will be impressed by knowing that with the help of this technology, bats search for their prey, and by this technique, the doctor gathers information about the health of the child born in the womb. If the geologist's estimation of some place goes wrong, then the refining company may have to suffer a loss of millions of rupees. Now we will know the history of oil and gas in India. oil was extracted from Assam alone, but after that excavation of mineral oil was started in Gujarat and Bombay High. Oil and gas are found below the ground and under the water of the sea, which we talked about, today 26 such basins have been traced in India, from which there is adequate possibilities of getting oil and gas. Gujarat: In the state of Gujarat, Khambhat and Ankleshwar are important areas, whereas the oil sector is expanding at places like Navangaon, Kosamba, Sunnd river valley, Kadi, Olpad, Hardana, Dholka, Mihasana and Kallol. Oil was excavated in 1958 for the first time in the Khambhat oil field. Oil has been detected in Eliabet Island, 45 km away from Bhavnagar in Saurashtra. According to the Oil and Natural Gas Commission, Gujarat has 500 million tonnes of oil reserves. Maharashtra: Bombay High area is spreading about 2,000 sq km away from the coast of Maharashtra, which is also an important oil field, from which oil is being received since 1976. Currently, mineral oil is being excavated from Godavari river valley area. It is estimated that 1250 million tonnes of oil reserves are available here. Assam valley: Assam Valley is India's most important and ancient oil field. Here the first year was discovered in 1837 by an officer in the oil. Here, about 800 oil wells have been digested in Digboi, the major oil fields of the region, in which Bappa Pang, Piatola, Haspapang etc. are very important. Apart from this, oil is also extracted in Badharpur and Patharia in the valley of Naharkitia, Hargiyan-Moran and Surma river. In total, total 500 million tonnes of oil reserves are estimated to be in Assam. The Sunderban region of West Bengal, Kisanganj and Raxaul areas in Bihar, Jaisalmer, Bikaner and Barmer districts in Rajasthan, the area of ​​the Kaveri river valley and the Bay of Gulf and the Andaman Nicobar islands. The first mineral oil refinery in India was established in 1901 in Digboi, which used only 5 percent of the total demand of India till independence. But at present, the total number of refineries of mineral oil is 14, which yields only 17% of India's total demand.

This video represents a good explanation of What is energy for kids. You will gonna learn about Energy Sources for kids, How we use Energy ( how to save energy ) and a brief understanding about different types of Renewable Energy resources as well as the nonrenewable ones. ► What is energy ? The best definition of energy, that every children should know, is that the Scientists define energy as the ability to do work. Modern civilization is possible because people have learned how to change energy from one form to another and then use it to do work. We use energy to move cars along roads and boats through water, to cook food on stoves, to make ice in freezers, and to light our homes. Energy comes in different forms: Heat (thermal), Light (radiant), Motion (kinetic), Electrical, Chemical, Nuclear energy and Gravitational Energy. People use energy for everything from making a jump shot to sending astronauts into space. There are two types of energy: ( Stored (potential) energy + Working (kinetic) energy ). For example, the food a person eats contains chemical energy, and a person's body stores this energy until he or she uses it as kinetic energy during work or play. Energy sources can be categorized as renewable or nonrenewable When people use electricity in their homes, the electrical power was probably generated by burning coal, by a nuclear reaction, or by a hydroelectric plant on a river, to name just a few sources. Therefore, coal, nuclear, and hydro are called energy sources. When people fill up a gas tank, the source might be petroleum refined from crude oil or ethanol made by growing and processing corn. Energy sources are divided into two groups: 1- Renewable (an energy source that can be easily replenished) 2- Nonrenewable (an energy source that cannot be easily replenished). ► Renewable energy and nonrenewable energy for kids : Renewable and nonrenewable energy sources can be used as primary energy sources to produce useful energy such as heat or used to produce secondary energy sources such as electricity. When people use electricity in their homes, the electrical power was probably generated from burning coal or natural gas, a nuclear reaction, or a hydroelectric plant on a river, to name a few possible energy sources. The gasoline people use to fuel their cars is made from crude oil (nonrenewable energy) and may contain a bio-fuel (renewable energy) like ethanol, which is made from processed corn. ► Moreover, you will gonna learn What is renewable energy for kids ? There are five main renewable energy sources: 1- Solar energy from the sun 2- Geothermal energy from heat inside the earth 3- Wind energy 4- Biomass from plants 5- Hydro power from flowing water ► What is Nonrenewable energy ? Most of the energy consumed in the United States is from nonrenewable energy sources: ( Petroleum products - Hydrocarbon gas liquids - Natural gas - Coal - Nuclear energy ). Crude oil, natural gas, and coal are called fossil fuels because they were formed over millions of years by the action of heat from the earth's core and pressure from rock and soil on the remains (or fossils) of dead plants and creatures like microscopic diatoms. Most of the petroleum products consumed in the United States are made from crude oil, but petroleum liquids can also be made from natural gas and coal. Nuclear energy is produced from uranium, a nonrenewable energy source whose atoms are split (through a process called nuclear fission) to create heat and, eventually, electricity. By watching this video, you will gonna learn how to conserve energy resources ( energy saving ) by understanding how energy conservation mechanism work as well as much knowledge about alternative energy resources. Enjoy watching and have a great time learning about energy sources for children.

James explains: http://bit.ly/1Pzy1k5 ____________ European economies were so closely connected that some people expected they have to avoid another world war or destroy their finances, but in fact World War I had taught them how to prepare for just such a scenario. Germany, France, and Great Britain all invested in their military before war broke out. When evaluating these economies to see how war would affect them, we look at four main factors: GDP, population, territorial extent, and per capita income. Broadly, this helps us determine how resilient, expansive, self-sufficient, and developed a nation is. All of those factors determine how a nation must conduct its war. For example, the vast territorial holdings of the British Empire meant that they had vast resources to draw upon but needed a long time to mobilize them, which helped Germany determine that they needed to strike fast and win big if they hoped to win the war before Britain's full resources came into play. Japan also estimated that they could win a war in the Pacific if they managed to win before the US had been involved for more than 6 months. These calculations drove the early strategies of the Axis powers, but the participation of the US would later prove to be a crucial factor. ____________ BONUS!
