Climate Mitigation

Climate mitigation looks at options for reducing the amount of climate change expected to take place in a way that doesn’t cause major disruptions in economic sectors now and in the future.

Processes or methods that can be used include:

  • Reducing the release of human produced greenhouse gases into the atmosphere
  • Creating long term storage of human produced greenhouse gas emissions

Many of the options for reducing greenhouse gas emissions also work for energy conservation, reducing reliance on fossil fuel supplies from other countries, and finding new areas for workforce development.
