The dynamics contributing to human ecosystem degradation and human-influenced run-away climate change exhibit properties common to all so-called self-organized processes. These properties characterize both organic and inorganic far-from-equilibrium systems. Principal among these properties is accelerated entropy production—not merely entropy increase, but an increase in the rate of...   More >
