Is our two-party system feeding climate denial?

Here are two articles, one that shows that while there's a big split between Democrats and Republicans, a majority of Americans now accept (note, I'm not using the word, believe, a word associated with faith, not knowledge) climate change is happening. The second article explores why the US has more climate deniers than our peers in the world. There are a number of contributing factors and certainly it's been politicized, but our two party system amplifies the divide, leaving us with binary thinking to retain our political worldview.
