Climate Change, Skeptics and Property

We know the science of climate change. It is clear: The planet is heating up placing humanity at significant risk. Arguing whether this is occurring is like saying that an apple will not fall on you from a tree. The theory of gravity is real, just the same way as anthropogenic climate change is occurring. So what is going on? Why are Americans so confused about this?Never mind that we are getting more frequent heat waves, droughts, overall more extreme weatherWhy is it that they are denying what their eyes are telling them?
