Like you said, the good part about minerals is they can store the
stuff-- more than can be said for electricity for instance!

Sorry Cassie I beg to differ. What is a coal body and a lake behind a dam if not stored elecricity.
Another side of the coin is, why do you need to store something that is delivered free in abundant quantities almost every day - wind & sunshine?

BUT- I do totally agree with you about resources. Whether they be trees, gold, nickel, bauxite etc. If you don't harvest them, then you still have them.
I do not go along with the viewpoint that if you don't use it , then it is a wasted resource. I think this is crap bandied about by the "rape and pillage now" crowd. You still have it. It is not wasted. It is still worth something.
Actually if you can keep it till everyone else has used theirs, then it is worth even more.
