Perhaps foremost among these whoppers is the belief - by human neoc lassical economists now making your world’s decisions - that food, manufactured goods and energy are created by human demand. Nope. They are created by catalyzing entropic flows. The same rules and processes which govern life itself, govern human industry, and your futures. The Bottom Line: Energy is fundamental, and there are heat losses at every stage when work is done which cannot be usefully recovered.
Energy in Ecosystems: Trophic Pyramids
"All flesh is grass."
– Isaiah 40:6
“Three hundred trout are needed to support one man for a year. The trout, in turn, must consume 90,000 frogs, that must consume 27 million grasshoppers that live off of 1,000 tons of grass.”
