VELAZQUEZ DE CASTRO GONZALEZ, Federico. Climate Change and Kyoto Protocol. Science and Strategies: Obligations for Spain. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 2005, vol.79, n.2, pp.191-201. ISSN 2173-9110.

This article presents climate change as the major environmental problem of our time. A result of the so-called "greenhouse effect", climate change is caused by certain gases, the concentrations in the atmosphere of which are growing exponentially. The consequences of these gases are going to be felt throughout the entire biosphere, from weather phenomenon to humans, creating a uncertain panorama which is going to be requiring some fast-paced adaptation on the part of all species. This is not, however, an irreversible process, taking action thus being possible and necessary, by combining education and lawmaking measures brought into being within the timeframes and to the extents set forth under the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. Spain will be one of the most highly-affected countries, and its strategy may therefore mean a highly-valuable tool for correcting the deviations caused and contributing to the urgent control of global emissions.

Palabras clave : Greenhouse Effect; Climate Change; Carbon dioxide; Public Polities; Methane.
