Question which I asked myself en route to Olamot 2006

As I drove my car from my city of residence to Holon, the city of Olamot 2006, and as I was thinking about Israeli space stations, I came upon the following question.

What modifications are needed on and in Earth in order for it to house 100 billion (1011) humans, without serious interference with other life forms?

A full answer needs to consider the following:

  • Food
  • Fresh water
  • Housing
  • Energy
  • Natural preserves
  • Public health
  • Manufactured goods (such as clothes and entertainment)
  • Enough space per capita to prevent feelings of claustrophobia
