By analyzing de CO2 concentration from the atmosphere in the three past decades, we ascertain that its values are bigger from one year to another, despite many documents and international debates and cautions from the scientific community. Likewise, it is admitted the fact that the expected effects of climate change will have a major impact on the environment, on human society and the anthropic activities, mainly the burning of fossil fuel is the main cause of global warming. Nevertheless, in the past years has been a significant accession of the consumption of all types of fossil fuel, scoring record levels. It is also important that from several reasons (population growth, economic boost, energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions), states in course of development have a great responsibility regarding climate change, increasing the CO2 emissions in the past years.
