A bibliometric analysis of 1337 papers from the Web of Science database published between 2000 and 2023 (January) was conducted to provide an overview of climate literacy. The study's objectives were to survey the body of literature on climate literacy, examine the connections among the authors, organizations, and nations that were active in the subject, and ascertain the rate of growth in that field during the previous 23 years. To find the current research interests, thematic and keyword analysis were done. With a total of 1337 articles published over the last three years, the data revealed a rising trend in the number of publications about climate change. The study discovered that Hong, Huang-Yao was the most prolific author and that the United States of America, China, the United Kingdom, and Australia had the greatest influence on the research produced on climate literacy. Prestigious universities contributing to climate literacy publications included the Australian National University, the University of Leeds and the University of Oxford. The journal with the most significant number of papers related to climate literacy was Sustainability, ranking first in the Web of Science. Based on the bibliometric study, the authors recommend that future research focus on climate literacy among youth and the associations between the various components of climate literacy.
