Abstract

Since the industrial revolution human beings have been emitting a huge amount of CO2,  due to massive fossil fuels consumption combined with intensive use of limestone.  Meteorologists have called for the reduction of amount of CO2 emissions that remain in  the atmosphere, after being emitted by human activities, which are allegedly causing  global warming. They have urged humankind to take effective measures in order to  avoid catastrophic events in the future. In response to these serious concern, economists  proposed various political and economic measures to reduce CO2 emissions and many  national governments, excluding, among others, the USA, ratified the Kyoto protocol in  February 2005, which assigned target CO2 emission reduction levels to each  participating country.
