The Option for Survival
Berry, R. Stephen
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, 27, 5, 22-27, May 71
Suggests formula for survival that takes a thermodynamic view which holds that we must recycle waste while the thermodynamic potential still is moderately high. Otherwise they are lost, as helium is lost when it leaves Earth's atmosphere and goes into space. The idea that the Earth is a closed system is a myth; it collapses each time we put our discards into nonrecoverable states. (Editor/PR)
