I heard a BBC radio programme a whil back where it was suggested that rather than hammer the fossil fuels until they're all gone, we leave some in the ground for when the next huge disaster strikes. We're going to need them to start afresh.

And they also suggested that we etch some of our basic knowledge in stone, something that will last, so when the computers and books and iPads are all gone, we know how to get going with steam and such.

I believe Carl Sagan suggested that we shouldn't test this stuff out 'cos someone could use it to threaten nations. Then again, I think any country with power to actually deflect an asteroid could probably wipe out anyone anyway.
