Entropy and the 2nd law

does life increase or decrease entropy?

according to the second law entropy increases regardless, as the potential of matter to do work is realised

what if life decreases entropy in order to bring balance to the system?

since nothing really degrades, elements are forever bound within the sphere

our understanding of entropy I’d based on a observation that the potential for a substance to perform the same task twice, is negated once it has performed the task the first time

yet the performance creates something new which life, or the circle of, reforms into something that can be used to complete the circle again

Ecosystem draw down increases entropy until the system rebalances

the increased heating due to fossil fuel performance is a commodity yet to be harnessed

My ipadery

Was a tree

hell, was a few hundred thousand trees

old as heck

and withered into coal

 

or some other fossil fuel

equally able to power the economies

that dig it up.

To create technology

 

in a perfect market

substitution is infinite

and technology will create itself.

through entropy

Liebig and his limits

The early science was concerned with the most limiting element to plant growth. Insufficient N and your plant wont’t reach its full potential

that which would hinder all; there is at least a resource whose substitution elasticity for others is less than 1.
