Partisan bias about climate change is more prevalent than you think.
Why do Democrats and Republicans differ so much on the fundamental science of global warming? A key reason is the politicization of climate science. Politicization means emphasizing the inherent uncertainty of science in order to cast doubt on the existence of a scientific consensus. The result is that citizens become uncertain about whether to trust politicized scientific information — even though, in the case of climate change, there is a clear scientific consensus about the reality of human-induced global warming.
