Climate change is generally considered attributable to numerous causes. Human induced climate change is particularly linked to anthropogenic activities that emit greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. The energy sector, due to its heavy reliance on fossil fuels, constitutes one of the largest carbon dioxide contributors to climate change. The mitigation of climate change requires the implementation of many measures. A great number of these are related to energy processes. In this article, the mitigation of climate change and the role played by energy actions in this task is examined. Further, measures are described that are considered crucial by the author for combatting climate change.
