Most researches focus on the important issue of producing CO2 and its consequences such as the greenhouse effect and the increase of water acidity. During the burning of a fossil fuel oxygen sequestration from the atmosphere, water production and its ecological effects are not usually quantified. This data is crucial for the study of cycles: hydrologic, oxygen and carbon dioxide. The imbalances of these cycles drive global preservation policies. The present work aims to provide a quantifiable base from which technological and political decisions can be made. This reference will show the masses and volumes of water and CO2 and the reduction of oxygen from the atmosphere as the result of the burning of main fuels from 1984 to 2010.

Keywords: water, hydrologic cycle, combustion, greenhouse gases, petroleum.
