Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleCommunication


The article is a review of a Danish book, 'Sustainability- Nature shows the Way', on 269 pages presenting a view on sustainability different from usual. A system's sustainablity is based on thermodynamics' available work, for living systems multiplied with a genetic information factor. This ascribes a high sustainability to highly developed living creatures like humans. Based on this definition, the book analyses how the present systems is deteriorated by humans in various ways, and suggest how this process can be reversed through political actions, mainly in the biological sphere like reversing deforestation.
