Ecosophia means ecological wisdom in Latin and this documentary explores the meta-crisis and interrelation between energy, the laws of thermodynamics, the economy, resources, exponential growth, climate change, population, psychology and degrowth solutions.
While people fight over whether human-influenced climate change is a fact or conspiracy, that is a distraction from the decline of surplus energy of the finite fossil fuels we extract that make everything else that's vital for a complex civilisation of exponential consumption possible.
