People for all time have had the opportunity to become enlightened. It happened to the buddha 2000 years ago, it can happen to us. It's a matter of recognizing certain ideas, that's all. The point isn't to suddenly switch to 'sustainability' methods and open up some clay mines and start clearing forests so we can grow canola to turn into biodiesel. That's a bunch of Fox-news strawman crap. Biodiesel comes from biodegradable LEFTOVERS. Clay is the most abundant element in the outer layer of our earth. People won't have to mine it, just dig it from under their own topsoil. It's NOT a fallacious concept, and if you think it is, then it's still valid for us to do what we do as a part of natural selection. While the rest of the world destroys itself, we'll be able to go off and live somewhere in our earthen huts and survive. Then our descendents will be this new 'species' you're talking about. Quit your bitching, you're a troll, not an elf.
