The target of this article is to analyse and evaluate the relation between road transportation and climate change, through the long time series of average CO2 concentration in the atmosphere and global average temperature of Earth. This article is built on data from the age % of which has information before the human impact on Earth. It can be clearly seen from the research that the human impact on air quality has different tendency than it had before. The trend of time-series was nearly independent from time: it was constant. It can be identified from the data that the increase of temperature was usually faster than the decrease in decreasing periods. There is a strong correlation between the average CO2 concentration in air and the average temperature of the Earth. The CO2 emitted into the environment increases the global temperature of the Earth. A huge part of the CO2 emitted by mankind into the atmosphere comes from transportation, mainly from the sector of road transportation.
