    a comparable historical model for the fossil fuel industry. Governments and wealthy industrialists prospered until both depleted their resource.
    Commercial, large scale whaling helped modernize life and start the industrial revolution. Fossil fuels emerged as the dominant resource, and are in a similar, and much longer economic cycle. As with the whaling industry, resources will be depleted, and wealth distribution among individuals and governments will be impacted. A new, and maybe yet undiscovered, source of energy will emerge to replace the fossil fuel era. Hopefully, our planet will survive to see that day.

      will survive.  But I don't think humanity will.

      In a few thousands of years, archeologists from another solar system will try to figure us out.  We're so full of contradictions, they won't believe their findings.
