All natural and technological processes proceed in such a way that the availability of the remaining energy decreases. In all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves an isolated system, the entropy of that system increases. Energy continuously flows from being concentrated, to becoming dispersed, spread out, wasted, and useless. New energy cannot be created and high-grade energy is being destroyed. An economy based on endless growth is unsustainable. The Vatican Playlist:

You know the book? Obviously everyone knows. I read it again and was really into the romantic part of it which takes place in a backdrop of weird political unrest or political problems, whatever you want to call it. I wanted The Resistance to have that same feeling, but with the political backdrop being current times," said Matthew. Thanks for watching :3 Kate Hudson
