Climate Change Mitigation


Climate change mitigation is an array of energy generation processes that shift the production of usable energy from methods involving the consumption of fossil fuels to alternative methods that do not emit greenhouse gases. Examples of mitigating processes include solar and wind systems, nuclear power, geothermal energy, hydroelectric dams, tidal systems and use of biomass. None of these methods generate a significant amount of greenhouse gases - however each has its own difficulties associated with its application.
