Climate deniers often believe that belief in climate change arises from an ideology similar to communism or socialism. On the lines of: Lefties will make up anything to grab control.
They might be confusing cause and effect. Perhaps the only effective policies to address climate change are socialistic by their nature; thus someone convinced of the need to address climate change by political means has no choice but to espouse such views.
But to admit that would be to admit that, at least in respect of certain environmental problems, individualism is a flawed ideology. Oops.
