Now you and I are finally finding a common ground. Humans are headed for a world with less. There is no rebuildable seamless transition to the level of material wealth we have now enjoyed from fossil fuel consumption. Which, oil is reaching it's peak availability within the next 20 years no matter how hard we try. We can go kicking and screaming with world and civil wars fighting over control of the last remaining new oil deposit discoveries (probably), or become wise in understanding we are all stuck together on one planet and use what we have left to soften the landing as best we can.
We will end up with a whole new way after the carbon pulse enters decline. We can fight to the end or learn how to cooperate.
