Bioclimatology is an ecological science that seeks to highlight the relationship between living things (biology) and climate (physics). The progress of this science has made it possible to establish agricultural and forestry models that can mitigate profound and irregular global climate change and make sustainable development feasible.

According to the fourth and most recent report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, global warming is already an unequivocal fact. The organisation’s third report already spoke of a year-on-year temperature increase of about 0.6°C that could affect physical and biological systems in different parts of the globe. Today there is already clear evidence that climate change and global warming are a reality that affects us all. Concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide in the atmosphere have increased dramatically around the world. We are now talking about a year-on-year temperature increase of 0.7°C, up from 0.6°C in the last report. And the consequences are clear. Climate change has been causing severe natural disasters and, in turn, economic and human life losses. The use of bioclimatology in agriculture, vegetation and land cover management can mitigate this problem.

Interesante el proponer el uso de modelos de gestión locales, pero ello debe estar relacionados con el abastecimiento de mercados regionales de alimentos. En cuanto a la critica a la practica del laboreo, ¿que proponen, regresar a la yunta de bueyes, a la palo azadón o cual otra alternativa?
Buen planteamiento, muy compilado y útil.
Yo creo que debemos cuidar mas el planeta ya que eso nos afecta a todos y al clima hasta podemos morir por lo mismo, por nocuidar el planeta
