This article aims to examine the main directions at odds on climate change. In order to do that, a theoretical approach is presented of the narratives and substantial repertories supporting the fundamentals of denial along with the conceptual differences among climate deniers, skeptics, and contrarians. Those repertories are a denial of scientific evidence, economic denial, and political denial. To end up, we refer to misguided deleterious information as a deliberate organized strategy. As a main conclusion, we address the emerging programs of climate literacy as a tool to neutralize misinformation and fake news.
Keywords: anthropogenic global warming, denial narratives, climate change literacy, climate contrarians, fake news.
