you're missing the point - in a word - poo! Not the nice organic, smelly but ultimately perfectly compostable and reusable poo, but all the detritus, muck, filth and other rubbish that people generate......life on the planet is already dying from it - the seas are dying, the air is filthy, land is losing it's innate fertility NOW, to increase the amount produced is sheer lunacy, and every year we delay taking real action, the more likely that mankind, and all life on the planet is toast.......... the very worst thing we could do is discover a new inexhaustible supply of oil - it would only hasten our demise.......

I think man has long considered any part of the world that isn't useful to him as 'wilderness', whereas in fact, for example, the oceans are probably responsible for sinking a large percentage of the CO2 which is removed from the atmosphere. So, yes, we could probably float cities and grow food on areas of ocean, but we'd probably reduce the amount of CO2 being absorbed even further, causing an accelerated problems. Of course, this is what we've been doing in the amazon for decades.
