Entropic Valuation is a “solar unit in – utilisable energy unit out” approach. It can compare how efficiently sunlight transforms to usable energy.
The energetics of life show us the way to a seismic change in the capacity and sustainability of our species.
Entropy applies without exception to all activities and processes. Is it the meta metric to measure and drive a circular economy?
The limits to growth are framed by thermodynamics, not sentiment and custom. We must evolve our systems of value to work within and alongside this reality.
