I have an agricultural type of suggestion:

This morning, I was thinking about the ancient sites archeologists have found in remote places, such as deserts.  The peoples who lived there grew crops, so is it possible the soil there—now buried under sand or glaciers, or possibly even the sea—might have become fertile again?  It would probably be very expensive to retrieve such soil, but it could become an option, if the need for more acreage arises.  If such soil exists, and is fertile, it could be placed on desert areas, to provide the basis for new topsoil.

What do you think?
