Fucking up the Earth

I started taking a summer Econ class.
I noticed that alot articles we read about resources, and how renewable they are, usually favor the side that says "The earth maybe has ran out of some resources compared to years before, but we aren't running out of them now."
But for the past few years the media has been saying that we are running out of resources.
They seem to think that if resources start to deplete Supply and Demand will people not to use the rare ones as much. This may work, but would the resources be able to bounce back?I'm not saying we are doing good to the Earth, but are we doing as much harm as we think we are?
How bad are we fucking up the Earth if we even are?
I can supply sources from the Econ side if needed.
Physics textbook and video series recommendations

>tl;dr pls recommend the best physics textbook and video series
I'm learning physics
I'm in the last year of high school
(18 btw, pls don't ban me)
My textbook is awful
It's full of mistakes
It's explanations are awful
They use poor notation (for example, not once do they use arrows over vector symbols, and they never seem to use subscripts, and sometimes their formulas appear to have errors in printing)
I've been watching Khan Academy videos, and while they sometimes explain things very well, at other times he seems to fumble around and leave out formulas.
I tried watching the first few MIT physics lectures. While I already understood the concepts they were teaching, I found his explanations needlessly convoluted and complicated.
So, can anyone recommend the best physics video series and textbooks?
I've checked the sticky, but there are just so many options that it's hard to decide
