3. Food = people
No, not soylent green...yet.

The more food we have, the more people we'll have. The more people we have, the more consuming we'll do. The more consuming we do, the more food we'll need. The more food we'll need, the bigger the giant greenhouse. The bigger the giant greenhouse, the more food we'll have. The more food we have, the more people we'll have. And so on.

I figured that we wouldn't actually change anything that we do. Do we need summer quality tomatoes during the winter months? Not really, but the craving must be satisfied.
