97. I imagine that the same may be said of most Americans on an individual level

I imagine that the same may be said of most Americans on an individual level as we have air conditioning, deep freezers, heating, computers, etc...

US energy usage - 389 watts per person
Democratic Republic of Congo energy usage - 10 watts per person

I imagine that a citizen of Congo would describe you in much the same manner you described NASCAR (our citizen from Congo says of you, "are painfully oblivious to the legacy you are leaving to the planet.").

Unless of course we then begin to justify and rationalize the excesses of our own usage, and in doing so, hold others to a higher standard than we hold ourselves.
