In this paper, we will examine the impact of population growth on the environment, which has caused major concerns lately, living in a period of unparalleled population growth. An analysis of population evolution, temperature changes and carbon dioxide emissions per capita will be conducted over the last twenty-seven years. At the same time, two models of linear regression were made to determine the influence that the population has on the two indicators studied. Population growth has a significant influence on temperature change and carbon dioxide emissions. The paper ends with predictions, based on population data, on temperature and carbon emissions.
