We've drained our planet's stored energy, scientists say, with no rechargeable plug in sight.

Is why we now look at the energy surrounding the planet!

Such an idea.

Interesting metaphor...
"Society partly drains the battery by converting forests and grasslands into agricultural fields. It diminishes the battery further by burning fossil fuels to plow fields and build cities."
It is true that today's business as usual is leading to extreme exploitation. We can and should transition to low-carbon economy.
Remember the beautiful art of the European renaissance, the superb architecture of Persia, and many many generations lived without using petroleum products.

We have been using up all the planet's stored-up hydrocarbons as fast as we can. This has to have adverse consequences that we can't even fully understand.
