Believing in Climate as in Destiny, Is It “My Climate, Your Climate” or “The Climate”? by Diego Fdez-Sevilla PhD

Believing in Climate as in Destiny, Are We Drivers Of Our Climate or Is It Just Written By The Stars Alongside Our Personal Destiny? by Diego Fdez-Sevilla PhD

Discussing about whom or what is responsible for the development of our climate has become a never ending story.

It does not matter who or where things are said. Seeing the discussion unfold all throughout the internet, the peer review articles being published or the political meetings is like seeing a gathering around a bucket into which people throw their arguments.

So, after a while looking at the punches being thrown and the arguments being spread like butter over each other’s faces, one starts to wonder, what was the question again?

So I will close a circle based on my own research.

On November 14, 2013 I published a small post:

Climate, “normal variability” or “change”? (by Diego Fdez-Sevilla).

From it:

… “From an environmental point of view I understand that any ecosystem has a limited capacity to absorb perturbations. So, from an hypothetical approach to the subject on human impact versus environmental change I would like to see a case scenario study giving answer to three questions: Could humans alter the ecosystem at global scale? Which part of the ecosystem (soil, atmosphere, light and heat (from our sun), water or living organisms) would reflect primary the impact from human perturbation? What would have to do humans to alter the ecosystem at global scale? In case the answer is “yes” to the first question, how much of the answer for the second and third questions matches with actual facts?” …

Now, after more than 3 years looking at these questions I can say.

  • Could humans alter the ecosystem at global scale?

Yes, Humans can alter the ecosystem at global scale the same as algae did increasing the concentration of Oxygen in the Atmosphere allowing Water Vapour to become available over the continents in the form of rain, and therefore, enabling the development of biotic processes inland.

  • Which part of the ecosystem (soil, atmosphere, light and heat (from our sun), water or living organisms) would reflect primary the impact from human perturbation?

The atmosphere is the most dynamic and movable component of our ecosystems. Any change in the composition of any part of the atmosphere will be spread through it. It is only a matter of concentration to see the effect of such perturbation in an isolated location to finding its repercussion miles away in location in the three dimensions of the ecosystem.

  • What would have to do humans to alter the ecosystem at global scale?

In order for humans to alter the ecosystem at global scale they would just need to change the part of the ecosystem which serves as the nexus point for all the other components. That is the atmosphere. For such change to have an impact over the whole system it would only need to be portable, resilient in time permanency, part of biochemical processes and thermodynamically active.

  • In case the answer is “yes” to the first question, how much of the answer for the second and third questions matches with actual facts?”

It just took me 3 and a half years for me to write the answer to this question throughout the posts published in this blog and at ResearchGate. It might just take couple of days for you to explore it and find what you are looking for.

Each and every one of us has to choose how we want to get involved in shaping our destiny and our climate. I can offer you a door open to have access to questions and my answers. But it is up to you to consider getting throw the door.

Ultimately, I am in transition looking into next steps in my career. If you find interesting my work and any of my skills throughout communication, research, graphic design, conceptual development, critical thinking, …  I would like for you to consider contact me at my email and explore possibilities to work together. I am open to consider opportunities to extent the potential from the research published in this blog bringing with me the intellectual rights over the body of work that I have generated as well as to change into a new path.

Bachelor in General Biology, Masters degree "Licenciado" in Environmental Sciences (2001, Spain). PhD in Aerobiology (2007, UK). Lived, acquired training and worked in Spain, UK, Germany and Poland. I have shared the outcome from my work previous to 2013 as scientific speaker in events held in those countries as well as in Switzerland and Finland. After 12 years performing research and working in institutions linked with environmental research and management, in 2013 I found myself in a period of transition searching for a new position or funding to support my own line of research. In the current competitive scenario, in order to demonstrate my capacities instead of just moving my cv waiting for my next opportunity to arrive, I decided to invest my energy and time in opening my own line of research sharing it in this blog. In March 2017 the budget reserved for this project has ended and its weekly basis time frame discontinued until new forms of economic and/or institutional support are incorporated into the project. The value of the data and the original nature of the research presented in this platform and at LinkedIn has proved to be worthy of consideration by the scientific community as well as for publication in scientific journals. However, without a position as member of an institution, it becomes very challenging to be published. I hope that this handicap do not overshadow the value of my achievements and that the Intellectual Property Rights generated with the license of attribution attached are respected and considered by the scientist involved in similar lines of research. **Any comment and feedback aimed to be constructive is welcome as well as any approach exploring professional opportunities.** In this blog I publish pieces of research focused on addressing relevant environmental questions. Furthermore, I try to break the barrier that academic publications very often offer isolating scientific findings from the general public. In that way I address those topics which I am familiar with, thanks to my training in environmental research, making them available throughout my posts. (see "Framework and Timeline" for a complete index). At this moment, 2019, I am living in Spain with no affiliation attachments. Free to relocate geographically worldwide. If you feel that I could be a contribution to your institution, team and projects, don´t hesitate in contact me at d.fdezsevilla (at) or consult my profile at LinkedIn, ResearchGate and Also, I'd appreciate information about any opportunity that you might know and believe it could match with my aptitudes.
