CLIMATE, ENVIRONMENT, ECOLOGY, ECOSYSTEM, GEOECOLOGY The above five words are often used in the development world. There is a hierarchy on the usage of the words, based on the meaning and implications and impact. For me Geoecology stands at the top as a term which encompasses everything and being more holistic. Sometimes by having limited meanings we ignore the broader implications and we tend to focus only on the immediate concerns as the cost of future impacts. The rain forests depletion is not the immediate concern of the Brazilian government, it is the concern of whole world. Earth is the only planet, it is precious let us understand it more under Geoecology, rather than limiting ourselves in understanding it through use of shallow terms.
