Blockchain and the environment

Is blockchain a major contributor to global climate change? What is the correlation?

Do not find a correlation whatsoever, unless it’s in the fields that can directly affect the climate change, meaning it helps out the companies to proceed with processes that affect the climate change (financial aspect).

Well, afair the official (or at least one of the official) points of view is that it’s not directly crypto and blockchains, but electricity that is required to run entire crypto environment, that is affecting climate. But to be honest I have my doubts about how much this actually affects the environment.
