if the earth was encased in a massive cube that prevented the transmission of
heat  , would the gradual increase in entropy in this enclosed earth gradually
cause an amount of heat so great that the earth would not be able to support
life? (this is assuming we live as normal and all our resources are provided and
that we still receive viable light from the sun)
