Then, the world will be finally saved from humans.
Kudos for making me LoL

Seacrete lilly-pads could be filled with dredged sand and then a little [nano-particulate] clay and compost tea would produce even more arable acreage.
7 billion, living better than ever (longer and wealthier, anyhow). Way better. Of course Sendler will correctly point out that this is due to the finite fossil fuel gift, but I anticipate a gradual shift towards accommodating future human consumption. Perhaps partly by reduced human population, increased efficiency, and as you point out, continued innovation in turning relatively worthless land into worth-full land. Way easier to terraform the Earth than Mars.

Ready Player One is waiting for me on the Kindle, but I haven't run out of Jordan Peterson and his critics material yet.
