Moreover you are advancing astonishingly unsupported claims. There is no compelling evidence whatsoever that 'oil spills, fracking, and fukushima are literally killing the biosphere'. AGW is certainly a real and human centric phenomena but it is correlated to the sum of our industrial output not to micro events like an oil spill. Not to mention that there is ample evidence that natural gas development reduces carbon output, while nuclear most assuredly does.
While the assumption that we will always be able to innovate ourselves out of scarcity, obstacles, and other impediments rooted in the fact that we always have. It's a fairly good precedent.
All you've really said is that you don't trust technology, think the biosphere is being poisoned, and without evidence argued that the 'growth model' has reached its limits despite evidence presented that such thinking has been very wrong in the past.
IMO, these are cyclic societal outbreaks that are no different than those of the past, and from which the country will return from, as it continues with it's capitalist and freedom focused foundation.

That's your opinion.
Which you are entitled to and with which I and the majority of Americans disagree.

Hey, no problem I use a lot of quotes myself from time to time.
I know that things don't look too great in the USA for a lot of people, but you can't give up hope- if we do that we are really and truly done.
If I didn't have hope I wouldn't even bother to get up out of bed in the morning.
Better days are coming, if we work together and make them happen.
