After seven years of hard work, everything was in place and all the oil wells were filled in forever. All the cars and trucks and metals from all the buildings in the towns and cities were put into warehouses for storage to be recycled. It was calculated that with making with recycling in mind, we have already dug up enough for all our needs. Especially with science focusing in the new direction of making new materials out of what we can grow.

The land was planned out into one kilometre square blocks that it was worked out can sustain one hundred people each. Considering half the land has to be used for sustaining the environment from a worldwide perspective.
In other words, half the land is for the care of the earth and for growing air and water and for protection from extreme weather and to make it possible to transform marginal lands and deserts into places where we can inhabit in harmony with other plants and creatures.
By leaving half the land for nature, in just one hundred years has doubled the land available for people and has provided an environment that people can see themselves as part of, not separate from nature.
