Carbon dioxide is released in large quantities when wood and such fossil fuels as coal, oil and natural gas are burnt. This release of CO2 is faster than plants and oceans, which absorb the gas, could handle it. If CO2 (and other greenhouse gases) levels in the atmosphere were to increase (due to burning of fossil fuels), the atmospheric temperature would increase (global warming).
