It has been accepted worldwide that environmental decay, like pollution, the greenhouse effect, or even traffic congestion, has been a result of the work produced to improve the quality of life, thus producing waste measured by entropy in the thermodynamic sense. The author proposes the use of optimal control theory to optimize the effects of human intervention in societal, ecological, economic, environmental and other current problems of our modern society by minimizing the maximum global entropy that represents their decay. An analytic method is presented to demonstrate the reduction of the human participation
