The old custom upon many estates is to let for leases of lives, renewable at pleasure. Jonathan Swift, Miscellanies.
A renewable resource, also known as a flow resource, is a natural resource which will replenish to replace the portion depleted by usage and consumption, either through natural reproduction or other recurring processes in a finite amount of time in a human time scale. When the recovery rate of resources is unlikely to ever exceed a human time scale, these are called perpetual resources. Renewable resources are a part of Earth's natural environment and the largest components of its ecosphere. A positive life-cycle assessment is a key indicator of a resource's sustainability. Definitions of renewable resources may also include agricultural production, as in agricultural products and to an extent water resources. In 1962, Paul Alfred Weiss defined renewable resources as: "The total range of living organisms providing man with life, fibres, etc...". Another type of renewable resources is renewable energy resources. Common sources of renewable energy include solar, geothermal and wind power, which are all categorized as renewable resources. Fresh water is an example of renewable resources.
Renewable, in general, refers to any resource, energy or material that can be replaced, replenished, or reused in a short amount of time to the extent that it is almost inexhaustible. It often refers to natural resources such as sunlight, wind, water, plants, and geothermal heat which are continuously available and can be sustainably used.
capable of being renewed; as, a lease renewable at pleasure
Able to be renewed.
Renewable energy is vital for humanity as it moves forward.

Cortney Brand said. Denver Basin Water is exploring the feasibility of pumping water far under the city, into the massive Denver Basin aquifer system to keep it there until the next dry spell. As Denver Water Resource Engineer Bob Peters points out, in the already arid American West, Drought is always on the horizon. We only get 15 inches of rainfall a year here in Denver Basin, and most of Denver Water comes from the mountain snowpack. That mountain snowpack melts and runs downstream, supplying water for much of the nation including the parched Southwest. When the snowpack fails the effects reach far beyond the region according to Doug Kenney, Director of the Western Water Policy Center at University of Colorado Law School. The California drought has really illustrated to people why drought in the West is important. If you consume vegetables in winter, you're probably getting those from Southern California, so from farm products to general economic health, not only do these things resonate throughout the rest of the country but throughout the rest of the world. A secondary source of water comes from underground aquifers which nature filled over the course of millions of years, and which humans are draining at a massive rate. Even though the aquifer system under the city of Denver Basin covers an area the size of the Connecticut, Peters said, The Denver Basin ground water is non-renewable so if you pump that water it's gone. What we're talking about is taking our renewable water supplies and injecting them into the aquifer to keep the aquifer replenished. With core samples taken every 10 feet down, the bore holes being drilled beneath Denver Basin will provide geologic data about how well the various open bowls in the rock will hold water without losing any to seepage or cracks. Cities like Phoenix, Wichita and San Antonio are already banking water underground and because it doesn't have the same downsides as above-ground reservoirs the method will surely become more common. Reservoirs are really tough to build, politically and financially, Kenney said.
Clean/renewable energy: The environment is vital to everyone, therefore everyone should vote in favor of clean and renewable energy. The government's of the world should invest properly, appropriately, effectively, and efficiently in this area.
We have to bear in mind that increasingly renewable energy is cheaper, cleaner, and more reliable than fossil fuels. Transition to a clean energy economy will benefit the country and create jobs. We must remove barriers to the deployment of renewable energy.
The Japanese government will aim for the maximum introduction of renewable energy but renewable energy has a cost issue.
New and renewable energy is expensive now, so it needs a special policy, how about we take some of this money (from fuel sales) to develop new and renewable energy.
