I am pretty much convinced myself that given a sufficient quantity of energy
(and of information one can do more or less anything at all.

What about reorganising the matter in the solar system into a Dyson sphere
around our star? Such solution would certainly sustain a much larger
population than six, or sixty, billion people for a rather long time,
including in the framework of very inefficient food-production choices.

Nevertheless, I think that J. Stanton may have a point as far as more
immediate scenarios are concerned.
