Help me understand the liberal/conservative split in the US with regard to global warming.

I'm puzzled as to why anthropogenic climate change became a issue that's split largely along liberal/conservative lines. The analogy in my mind is of a liberal/conservative split on whether P=NP
or not. Why has this become an ideological question and not a scientific one?
Remember, kids, I'm only asking a meta-question about global warming, so play nice.
