In simple terms, Geoentropy is the science of examining the volatility of weather patterns on a planet. Instead of primarily looking at the physical features of the surface and atmosphere, geoentropy applies a more inclusive approach that proposes a major feedback mechanism between the geology and biosphere. That in essence the biosphere has evolved in a way that it mitigates the raw forces of nature, and over the course of its long evolution has developed a myriad of means to adapt and change weather patterns. In short, the biosphere strives to reach and maintain a global equilibrium that minimizes the geoentropy to produce ideal conditions for its development. Geoentropy proposes that the genetic development of entire ecosystems is based on this principle and the fundamental interaction with the environment on a larger scale.

With other words, without the biosphere and based on the geological features alone, the weather on Earth would be much more extreme and volatile, similar to how science books depict the ancient oceans before life emerged, rough and stormy. Since that time hundreds of millions of years have passed and human civilizations only began to develop after the geoentropy had subsided to a level that allowed for agriculture to thrive, and in particular first in such regions that allowed for temperate and stable weather patterns. Examining the history of mankind in this light reveals many interesting aspects. Identifying the areas that have been settled by non-nomadic civilizations later also yields important clues to which regions are most under threat to revert to more volatile weather patterns, if we assume that a reversal, or return to higher levels of geoentropy, follows the same pattern reversed, which is logical because the geology of the Earth hasn't changed that much in a few millenia.

Research on geoentropy may turn out to be critical for the survival of civilization as we know it. While it might be obvious that human civilizations can only thrive in a small band of levels of geoentropy, the mainstream and scientific community mostly take reasonable levels of geoentropy for granted. There simply isn't sufficient research being done to examine the conditions that impact its change. Many geological features that are considered stable might very well be volatile, this includes the magnetic field, geotectonic forces, genetic pool evolution and key feedback mechanisms in the biosphere.

The term Geoentropy was introduced and first used in this sense by Simulation Systems Research Corporation Ltd, a research think tank originally founded in the UK and which now has its seat in Ireland.
