Within the simulation horizon, through several scenerios related to the performance of the Mexican and international economies, CO2 emissions derived from energetic combustion are determined; and these could be classified as a base line for the design and implementation of policies that could reduce them. Furthermore, these emissions are projected through an extrapolation process, and the results of “official” policies to diminish them are determined given the existing assortment ofgoals; hence, the gaps pending for elimination are identified. On the other hand, the variety of policies implemented nowadays are not enough toface the problem’s magnitude; thus requiring the impulse of nuclear technology for power generation, the adoption of bio-fuels which allow anarticulation with the agricultural sector, intense utilization of available energetics, more renewables, and the efficient usage of energy amongstmany other policies.
