With the development of politicization, climate change has become the significant driving force that can influence the evolution of geopolitical pattern. Driven by climate change, new changes have taken place in the evolution of geopolitical pattern. Measures, sphere and contents of geopolitical contention changed dramatically, carbon emission permits, carbon tariff and new energy technology turned into the key points of geopolitical contention. Climate change acts on the evolution of geopolitical pattern through 3 main paths : "Feedback effect", "Trace back effect", and "Ripple effect", and they exert influence on geopolitical pattern with 3 impacts : "Depression effect", "Traceability effect", and "Diffusion effect". It is concluded that those who can take advantage of new energy technologies will occupy the leading position in future’s climate change negotiations and geopolitical competition
