          While not as fun, or cliche, some private company somewhere fucking up and causing the stone apocalypse by accident is also a possibility. This would require a separate explanation for the spoiler tough.

                                      The formula isnt 30% nitric acid, its 30% "miracle water" he never says miracle water is 100% nitric acid.

                                        I support the idea that the AI or even possibly a scientist that has uploaded his brain into a computer has done this because of the horrific effects of war, global warming, and the depletion of earths resources. So the culprit froze humanity in order to allow the earth to be restored.

                                          Your intro wasn't 90 seconds long, it was not an accurate anime intro.

                                            This is more of cryostasis than petrification to be logical.

                                              This anime is by far the best in portraying the beauty and philosophies of science.

                                              As an engineering student, i can vouch for its accuracy in engineering science.
                                              It also captures the unconventional fact that science requires more perseverance than pure intellect. There will be trial and error. Because that is the heart of the scientific process. To learn back from your mistakes through experimentation. There is no such thing as certain failure in the mind of a true scientist.

                                              As Einstein once said, “I am not a genius, i am just incredibly curious.”

                                                    no, its from the manga. So you might have to wait till around ep 20-30.

                                                          It shows the cities are decaying from old age and everything, and even shows nature taking the planet back. But what I think should be most concerning is that several nuclear plants were left untouched for hundreds of years, wouldn't that cause a chain cataclysm from being unattended? Not to mention all the severe weather effects that would happen from humanity suddenly not warming the planet anymore...maybe I am overthinking this.
