You’re incorrect that a ‘large portion of the public’ doesn’t believe the science — polls are very clear that globally, support for the basic conclusions of climate science is very high, and it’s well over 50% in the U.S., and now over 50% amongst Republicans.

I don’t believe people are honest with the pollsters on this one. It’s easier to tell them no and send them on their way. Pollsters are always interrupting something worth doing; and the people you refer to as “denialists” on the lower right quadrant have nuanced views on the matter polling questions can’t pick up.
