Unlimited electric power from fusion technology fueled only by water. From the sun itself via solar power satellites. Throw your garbage into a fusion torch, folks, and out the other end comes free clean raw materials. Unlimited power means unlimited Animal and People Chow from artificial photosynthesis. No more need to plant vast monocultures of grain means planting more trees and cleaning up the atmosphere. Moving heavy industry into space finishes the job. Mining the moon and asteroids means unlimited raw materials and unlimited power means the ability to turn anything into anything.
