The paper discusses the problem of global warming and climate change. The effect of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions and the human role in the change of CO2 concentration in the ground atmosphere are considered. Brief review of present-day views towards the role of greenhouse gases in the change of global temperature is presented. The estimate of anthropogenic CO2 emission contribution to global climate change is based on the analysis of published literature and data from meteorological observatories.

Key words:

anthropogenic emission, carbon dioxide, global warming, greenhouse gases
