Climate Demographics

I saw this Pew study results a few days ago. Wired looks at them and asks some obvious questions. Unfortunately, the whole issue of climate change has become a political football, the goal of some of the parties involved, I'm sure..

That strikes me as deeply weird. I don't even have a snarky quip, much less an explanation. What do you think, Wired Science readers? Why are less-educated Republicans more likely to agree with the global scientific community than their more-educated political counterparts, and vice versa among Democrats?
