The purposes of present paper are to review previous research findings, and then provide directions for future researches in this field. Specifically, psychological mechanisms handling risk perception based on climate change include the psychometric paradigm and two system theory. Evidences show risk perception based on climate change could be mediated by gender, age, knowledge, experience, emotion, world view and so on. Further researches are expected to focus on deepening our understanding of its psychological theories and determinants, as well as expanding its application values to group.
