Systems methods, applied inappropriately, have resulted in frequent failures. Moreover. complexity, variety, and widespread partial indeterminism of ecosystems and systems inhabited by humans, need to be addressed with tools that can achieve both a holistic and at the same time detailed and intelligible - that is parsimonious - treatment and that can combine a systematic approach with the necessity to allow for erratic behavior.

A method of scale for overview and a hierarchical approach are used to achieve the above stated objectives. A very effective new method is reported, where a dynamic model is used to generate time series of maps on pollution and forest damage.
