All of us are seeking answers, and answers exist in the collective wisdom of Humanity.
Ultimately, the question is about the use of that collective wisdom for the survival of mankind.
God has given everything to mankind - rainforests, coal, bauxite, uranium, gold, the fossil stuff and alternatives. Mankind can harvest everything and trade with each other. Cars and trucks for gold and diamonds... Rice and wheat for oil and bauxite...
Coffee, sisal, passion fruits and flowers for furniture and books...
And so on. There is nothing lacking, and God replenishes the Earth constantly because He is our Loving Heavenly Father.
The economists and the bankers and the stockbrokers can facilitate exchange. The politicians and the statesmen can help to create the framework in which all these things are possible.
I sinerely hope the day is nearer when all such things will be implemented, to the greater glory of God and the betterment of mankind.
