Life on Earth is not how it should be.
Your use of petrol and gas has consequences you don’t seem capable of understanding, just think how each small car has a tank full every week, and multiply it by the number of cars in all the countries of Earth, and just for a minute think that it all comes from out of the ground and isn’t replaced with anything. Think of your own small car and its petrol tank and the gap it would leave in the ground, and then multiply that by all the cars, lorries, planes, ships, not to mention industry and gas heating etc. It could be possible that the ground will literally cave in, leaving a crater where there used to be countries. This will change the dynamics of the planet, altering its spin and changing its climate.
As for food, your abuse of animals is like nothing I have ever seen, cows, chickens, pigs, sheep all get slaughtered in their millions, leaving their souls to run wild into the either. Meat should be a luxury a few times a year not a staple every day. You should also refrain from milking cows for your own benefit, take the honey of bees and the eggs of chickens, it all has consequences.
The potato came from the Andes in South America, which is where it belongs, it does things you don’t understand, it has a life you aren’t aware of, and you eat it by the million tonne without any regard for what it is.
You also shouldn’t eat butter or any other animal product, you should use soya and vegetable products instead, and that goes for soya milk, which is permitted. You could also use vegetable product for your fuel.
And as for those great cavern where the oil used to be, maybe you could make a soup of the mountains of pampers you produce every year and pump them in. You have taken that which can’t be replaced, maybe you could replace it with something you seem to have a lot of.
You should be living simple lives harvesting wheat and living in stone dwellings without power, much as you were 200 years ago. No medicine, no watches, no electricity, no cars.
All a bit like The day The Earth Stood Still (2006) :)
