This question emerge in the center of a controversy over the role of man as the protagonist of catastrophic climates changes and the need for reducing carbon dioxide emission from burning fossil fuels, otherwise new generations will have their life quality threaten. This discussion which involves CO2 reduction advocates and skeptical, contributes to guide public and private investment in sustainability.

Science has described that the 10 warmest years in the 134-year record have all occurred since 2000, except the year of 1998. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) temperatures warmed roughly 1.53°F (0.85°C) from 1880 to 2012 over all land and ocean surfaces and about 0.72°F (0.4°C) has occurred since 1979. The IPCC scientists have high confidence that global temperatures will rise of 2.5 to 10°F over the next century. Examining the scientific consensus on Climate Change (2009), 97% of the climate scientists think human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperature. However 31,000 scientist signed on to a petition that saying there is no “convincing evidence” that human is the main factor to cause heating to atmosphere.

Environmentalists and scientist attribute temperature increase consequence of high levels of CO2 in the earth. Because carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, increasing the amount of CO2 emitted to atmosphere will produce more greenhouse effect and thus leads to warming. By analyzing data,…
