Some important Criminal law teachers have enunciated the existence of cumulative crimes, though each of them does not have punishment, or this one is minimal; but that its accumulation generates responsibility, which it should be sanctioned, in protection of the interests of the future generations. They exemplify with those against the Environment, by means of cases of gradual and systematic pollution. For them, a responsibility should exist not only individual, also collective, which still is discussed. This work approaches the above mentioned thesis, not accepted unanimously by the Criminal law, but that nevertheless, it does not constitute an innovation for the Public international law, because the Collective Security exists in the United Nations. The Security Council can apply, still preventively, pacific solution measures for an eventual and future conflict, if it threatens the International Peace and Security. The point is analyzed, in addition, in relation to the International Crimes and to the International Responsibility.
