Way out of the environmental crisis
Here we give a new, but very fundamental scientific approach on ecology. Energy consumption, Pollution and economical values are related to the same single universal scale. This universal scale is derived from very basic physics of thermodynamics, i.e. the principle of minimized entropy production in systems that are not in the thermal equilibrium. The authors show how a new evaluation scale could be defined, which is superior to the existing monetary systems becauses it naturally includes ecological factors, which are thus not depending on social or political boundary conditions.
