This study explores the potential of quantum machine learning and quantum computing for climate change detection, climate modeling, and climate digital twin. We additionally consider the time and energy consumption of quantum machines and classical computers. Moreover, we identified several use-case instances for climate change detection, climate modeling, and climate digital twin that are challenging for conventional computers but can be tackled efficiently with quantum machines or by integrating them with classical computers. We also evaluated the efficacy of quantum annealers, quantum simulators, and universal quantum computers, each designed to solve specific types and kinds of computational problems that are otherwise difficult.
