In this paper, we present a new approach of studying the full dissipative property of the Vlasov-Poisson-Boltzmann system over the whole space. The key part of this approach is to design the interactive functional to capture the dissipation of the system along the degenerate components. The developed approach is generally applicable to other relevant models arising from plasma physics both at the kinetic and fluid levels.
