    While the possible depletion of energy sources has been emphasized in most literatures, this book aims to show that the increase of entropy in the biosphere, resulting since the dawn of industrial era, is a cause for urgent concern. As the entropy release puts a limit on sustainable growth, and the CO? atmospheric content is a reliable indicator of global entropy release that threatens the biospheric balance, a change of paradigm is necessary with the need to switch from an economy of exploitation to an economy of entropy. Contents: The Limits to Growth: From Malthus to COP 21 via the Club of Rome Greenhouse Gas Effect and Boltzmann Entropy Biosphere in Disruption Thermodynamic Conditions for a Return to Equilibrium Why Do We Release So Much Carbon into the Atmosphere? Means for a Recovery of Balance Readership: Students and the general public interested in the science behind climate change. Key Features: Emphasizes entropy as the global concept behind climate change as well as all forms of pollution Relies on geological data to demonstrate that the biosphere has become out of balance Gives a concrete estimate of the amount of investment necessary to restore biosphere balance
