Why do conservatives continue to deny that the burning of fossil fuels has caused global warming, and climate change?

Update:

The burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and farming are the major contributors to global warming.

Update 2:

Socrates, Google... causes of climate change

    I think they are so conservative they are afraid of the plain truth. They want to bury their heads in the sand and deny it. Plus Trump said it was a Chinese hoax, and too many of them have fallen for the lies of this lying demagogue. Demagogues, political con artists, make GREAT liars, and Trump is one of the greatest liars of all time.

    Show me any actual climate model that accurately predicts the results you want. One hasn't been made yet that does. You do care about science, don't you?

    Let's keep real as the deniers are bad enough. Climate change is indisputable and average global temperatures rising. The polar vortex is destabilized. Record dry spells and heat and forests burning through the west coast after Australia was hit last year. Storms through the Gulf Coast with repeated "100 year" flooding. Unstable poles. Permafrost melting.

    Now, we know fossil fuel use has raised CO2 levels higher than since humans walked the Earth. We know that vast areas of rain forest were cleared for developments. We know the forest burning adds to CO2 also. We know all of the fossil fuel has an effect. What we are not sure of is the contribution of each to the problems. The burning of fuels ADDED to the problem, but don't use the word "caused" as that is unproven.
