Climate and energy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The world's climate determines the pattern of its winds.  These winds are now increasingly used as a source of energy.
The world's climate determines the pattern of its winds. These winds are now increasingly used as a source of energy.

In the 21st century, the earth's climate and its energy policy interact and their relationship is studied and governed by a variety of national and international institutions.[1]

The correlation between climate and energy rests on known causal relationships between human population growth, rising energy consumption and land use and the resulting greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.[2][3][4][5][6]

The concern for climate change control and mitigation has consequently spurred policy makers and scientists to treat energy use and global climate as an inextricable nexus with effects also going in reverse direction[7] and create various initiatives, institutions and think tanks for a high-level treatment of the relationships:
