The exponent of old and static school hold that natural phenomena are all resources. They are already in the realm of nature and are fixed or static. Resources are not made or created.

RESOURCES AND RESOURCE CREATING FACTORS NatureÂ’s function as resource depends largely on man's efforts, want and skill. In other words, only a very small, fraction of nature's treasure functions freely as resource. Of course, nature provides the physical base upon which man can try and display his skill. And for this part of nature's role it is a resource creating factor.

Functional Aspect of resources Resources relate to man and it is functional. It is only means to an end, the end being satisfaction of human wants or social objectives. A thing is resource so far as it affects man as a means of satisfying his wants. That is to say, a thing becomes resource by its function in relation to man. A lump of coal is resource not because of its shape, color or composition or for its scarcity but because it functions for satisfying some human want.
