The majority of articles and books on the environmental question consider the main environmental problems as a fact, without discussing its uncertainties. In this article we consider the two main environmental problems: the climate change and lost of biodiversity. We characterize the problems and show the international discussion about it, as well as the scientific uncertainties.
