Overtime, we've located, drilled, and used a large portion of our planet's fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are found underground, and are dug up to be used as a form of energy, (ex: Oil found by drilling into the ground and extracting it from the surface through a long pipe) but it's also becoming an issue as to we might be running out of easily possessable fossil fuel.

If I had control over the process of fossil fuel consumption in the entire world, I'd terminate all fossil fuel extraction until further notice, because if people are going to avoid running out of fossil fuels, we are go

So my question is:

Approximately how long of a wait is it until the majority of extracted fossil fuels are renewed?
