This paper formulates the climate change dilemma as an adaption of public goods game. The Nash equilibrium of the climate change dilemma is analyzed in the cases of discrete contribution and continuous contribution. Analytic results show that environmental feedback promotes cooperation to a certain extent, but as the number of players increases, zero contribution becomes the only Nash equilibrium in most cases. A dynamic model based on Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm is then proposed for the climate change dilemma, where the information exchange is restricted by a network. Simulation results show that the proposed dynamic model can effectively promote cooperation, especially in the case of continuous contribution, and making decisions based on historical information can largely boost the average contribution.
