This lecture starts by clarifying concepts often used in a mixed and unclear way, such as climate, environment, meteorology, adaptation or transformation. It then reviews several examples in history, relating climatic stages or oscillations with human cultural changes, then attempting to draw some conclusions on adaptive trends. In a third moment it reviews contemporary indicators of global warming and what is known as the “great acceleration”, framing them in a longer climate cycle and the mechanisms leading towards a new cooling stage. It finally concludes by suggesting methodologies to adapt to what should be characterised as an uncertain mid-term future.
