Junk science defers from pseudoscience in that it refers to untested or unproven theories. Junk science might also use false data and information. Pseudoscience refers to anything that's disguised as being scientific but has no basis in science and doesn't adhere to scientific method. See abiogenesis, social Darwinism and naturalism for more on that. Pseudo means fake/false so the term pseudoscience means "fake science" in other words.
Many atheists believe in junk science and evidenceless hypothesizes such as abiogenesis, the multiverse, steady state theory (debunked) and naturalism.

The reason people are just starting to believe in climate change is because the oil magnates have been producing junk science to debunk it for years.
