You seem to have a better understanding of the matter than myself. I still consider our Earth to be a perpetual motion device, least until our star burns out. 4 billion years might not be forever but for Human beings intents and purposes it sure is.
How would using the Earths natural power over time drain the planet? I thought the Sun continuously recharges or planet with solar radiation? Imagine if we could harvest the power of lightning, estimates say lightning strikes the earth 8,640,000 per day! How many Kwh would that get us if we could somehow tap and store the power unleashed? A lot of dam ergs i imagine.
