Solar energy is so good we don’t even need to consider any other energy sources.

Combined with efficient and sustainable batteries we’ve essentially solved the energy question. Batteries are necessary for mobility/individualism/decentralization.

Also a big part of resource management is human waste management, because there are almost 7 billion humans on earth; that’s a lot of molecules and a lot of food and a lot of poo.
