Climate change denial incorporates the act of unwarranted doubt, denial, or dismissal, which
challenges the scientific consensus regarding climate change. It incorporates all aspects
revolving around the scope to which climate change is generated by humans, its influences on
human society and nature, and possible alteration to global warming by individual acts. Climate
change denial may be inherent when social groups or people contend with the science but do not
agree with its terms or translate their acceptance of specific actions (Collomb). Climate change
denialism is similar to science denialism. Just like in the denial of climate change, individuals
reject the basic concepts and facts that are well supported and undisputed aspects of scientific
consensus regarding a particular subject while at the same time favoring some controversial or
radical ideas. Science denialism is applied through explaining the concept of climate change
denialism which can be described through three significant perspectives, which incorporate
media portrayal regarding climate change, political ideologies regarding climate change, and the
socially organized climate change denial. The three concepts generate a comprehensive
understanding of the significant forces driving climate change denialism. This study will
incorporate a literature review of peer-reviewed articles published within the past 25 years. It
will generate a systematic evaluation of scientific literature regarding science and climate denial
by illustrating what is denied, who is denying it, and the strategies for dealing with science
denial. The articles will identify the major trends and issues identified within the scientific
literature, which describes the characteristics of denial and various strategies of countering them.

1. Media portrayal of climate change
The media analysis of climate change has had tremendous impacts on public opinion
regarding climate alteration.
