Controversy on the understanding of climate change is something to deal with the individual’s aptitude to understand scientific facts and theories. Climate change denial/ climate denial are those who oppose the well-established scientific knowledge of climate change science. They prefer themselves to so-called “Climate Change Skepticism”. Climate change denial always contributed to the spreading the fake news and statements about climate science. They opposed anthropogenic global warming, moreover, they are telling the world that climate change is a hoax or that humans are not responsible for climate change.

Scientific Facts and theories of Climate model
Have you ever thought of how facts and theories are created? Human psychology tends to live in past, present, and future. Ideas, innovations, and planning are a result of knowledge, experience, arguments, interactions with the natural world, and debate about healthy human brains. Debating is fun and admit that you do debate with your friends, your colleagues, on social media, etc. When we debate, we skip each other with points of facts, theories, opinions, and myths. Fact is the statements that are proven by experimental observation of the real world. Opinions are those statements that are not facts.
After Darwin’s book “On the Origin of Species” in 1859, the theory of evolution by natural selection became popular. The evolution theory is still one of the most well-defined and relatively supported scientific theories. In general, theory means a formulation of statements to describe, recognize, and guess any possible events. However, In certain circumstances, it can confront an existing history of human values, understanding of the phenomenon, and knowledge.
Past 3 centuries, Philosophers and scientists have endorsed evolution theory as fact and theory because of evidence of historical events (fossil descent), current, and transition processing of organisms in nature. Science describes fact as sets of data which is not an absolute value but are confirmed to be the highest certainty level.
The scientific theory is a statement of composition and experimental observations of facts. Let’s talk about climate science, Climate Science is based on established facts and possible available accurate data. In the early 19th century, Scientists suspected that natural and artificial influences on changes in the climate of the earth relative to the entire history of the earth, events of ice ages, and history of climate science began. The important effect of the natural greenhouse effect was first recognized. Later, scientists were convinced that global human activity emission of human greenhouse gas (water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, and ozone) has affected the earth’s climate. It took a time to get climate science to this level. During the 1970s increasing knowledge of human involvement in the greenhouse, effect leads to the issue of global warming. With the advancement of technology in the 1990s scientists were able to set up an advanced computer model to analyze climate change, historical patterns, behavior, and future prediction of the earth’s climate.

how do climate models work?
Wonder how climate models work? Climate models are complex and large powerful computer systems. They use quantitative data such as historical climate events, recorded data, an interaction of land, ocean, atmosphere, and natural and human variables to get an idea of how climate system work. Based on those models human-caused greenhouse gas emissions were bringing noticeable global warming. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 1988, has been documenting climate research from the late 1900s to till today.
IPCC is the body of the United Nations formulated to provide a scientific view on climate science and environmental science and their interaction with human attributes. IPCC has already five assessment reports on climate change and scientists are working on the sixth assessment report AR6 Synthesis Report: Climate Change 2022. IPCC won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for its contribution to aware humans around the planet to increase knowledge about artificial(human) involvement in climate change. likewise, to build a strong foundation to win a war against climate change.
I bet you have ideas of how the biggest scientific theories work. The goat theories of all time like the Theory of relativity, the Big Bang theory, the theory of evolution, & the theory of gravity. These theories have well-established the highest level of certainty in their statement by supporting them with pieces of evidence to validate their claim. For example: In Big Bang Theory, According to Nasa Big Bang theory is a combination of mathematical models where researchers developed more understandable theories to describe how the Universe works. The use of Einstein’s theory of relativity 1966, mathematical models along with standard theories of natural science made on the Big Bang theory widely accepted.
The mathematical underpinnings of the Big Bang theory include Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity along with standard theories of fundamental particles. From the climate denial/climate change denial position it seems that entire scientific reports, knowledge, and research lies and they always opposed the idea of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) theory. Let’s go back to The Hubble expansion of the Universe, the ultimate beginning and ending of everything. Skeptics interpret that’s a complete lie. If you love science you know that proving anything to absolute certain accuracy is impossible. Likewise, in climate science skeptics are falls into the category of denialism according to the researchers of social science which means the behavior of humans to deny truths and reality.
Climate Change Deniers what changed your minds?
The environment section of The Guardian reported that a recent poll has indicated a significant rise in people who believe climate change is real. Large appreciation goes to the science class in school, the newspaper, activist, social media, and everyone who care for planet Earth. Thread on askreddit forum of Reddit titled “Former climate change deniers, what changed your mind?” user chucklesthe2nd replied that he used to believe climate change is a hoax because his dad said so, but he changed his mind when he learns about the greenhouse effect in school. The user concluded his comment with this:
It looks like we are getting an encouraging trend in climate awareness. Researchers at Monmouth University conducted a poll(Nov 29, 2018) to analyze increasing consciousness of climate change science which found that approx. “8-in-10 Americans (78%) consider the earth’s climate is experiencing a change that is causing more extreme, dangerous weather events and sea level rise, 8% increase than December 2015”. To support this finding let’s look at work from researchers at Yale and George Mason. They studied numerous sets of poll responses taken between 2011 and 2015. The finding is obvious and bad news for climate change denial. 8% of Americans believed they had recently changed their opinion on climate change.
Here are some titles of another news article in the environment section of The Guardian:
- People use the big freezer to disagree with climate change: silliness or sarcasm?
- Climate change denial won’t even help oil corporations soon.
- Trump doubts the validity of climate change science. So do most Republicans.
- BBC confesses their climate change coverage gets wrong too often.
All kinds of people are changing their beliefs about climate change and accepting science, regardless of sex, age, experience, education, or political association. I have created infographics media to show you the popular myths of climate change.
Win a War against Climate Change
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) summary and the guideline stabilized global warming at 1.5° Celsius. Achieving a 1.5° Celsius temperature is a global goal. The issue of climate change is a popular topic in politics, sports, events, and music. The US President Donald Trump’s own Organization dedicated to climate science National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) found that 2017 was the coldest year ever for weather and climate disasters. They also state that the economic loss of that cold temperature is over 300 billion dollars. This means that AGW is real and bulks of low-standard statements saying climate change is a hoax, which you have seen multiple times on the internet are fake. What does it mean to humans? Well simple as that balance the emission of greenhouse gas, promote sustainably, act now for climate action, increase awareness of environmental science, and love Earth. The meaning is simple you should not be building a coal plant or burning fossil fuels, instead replace them with hydropower, solar, and wind energy. Care for sustainably before using natural resources, take it as a blessing not granted.

One Earth, One Home
The United Nations has a supreme body to make legal instruments, make decisions and their theme is to progress with the issue of climate change. A conference of the Parties (COP) is a convention of members of a country who are also a member of the United Nations. United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) COP’s early version started in 1995, COP 1 Berlin, Germany to COP 25th, 2019. Brazil (Nov 11-22). The famous series of COP are as follows:
COP 3, 1997, Kyoto, Japan (Kyoto Protocol of greenhouse gas emissions)
COP 15, 2009, Copenhagen, Denmark. (Greenhouse gas emission trading: carbon trade)
COP 21, 2015, Paris, France (Paris Agreement)
Conference of the Parties (COP convention series has focused on ideas of people’s knowledge about climate change, limitation of AGW, mitigation of climate change, and climate justice. Famous American Cosmologists and natural scientists called the planet earth a pale blue dot. Sagan continues “Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us.” Sagan states every possible good, bad and neutral thing and the life we know in the history of our species lived here on a particle of dust-suspended Sky. Meantime, climate justice and climate debate can flip large ships in a country like the United States. What is the secret motivation to deny climate change? US President Trump asserts that he knows a lot of science, so believe him instead of all the scientists.
Skeptics still believe that there are reasonable controversies about the existence of climate change. Those who know better, or suspect climate-change denial is irrational. They have assumed empirical reality and won the debate over climate change and empirical reality. We don’t have time, Planet Earth doesn’t need you to continue her life, Earth was here 13 billion years ago. So what? The next step is we need to keep her best natural conditions for every good reason, for generations. We have one home, one planet, Earth. Support sustainability, use resources responsibly, replace fossil fuels with renewable energy, recycle and reuse. Show you care for Mother Earth, we only got one, planet, One Home. Go Green. That’s where we are on the climate-change debate. And you do wonder how long Americans are going to put up with the dangerous campaign of denial on the right.
