Default Why some still against climate change?

I was doing some research on differences between the two presidential candidates from the aspect of science, and I reached climate change. I recall the quote from Romney that Obama wants to improve the planet's environment while Romney wants to improve you and your family's life. Romney received unanimous standing ovation for that during his acceptance speech. Others from the Republican side also continue to make mockery out of climate change (I noticed it continues to get attention all over twitter regularly, it also continues to be everywhere regularly in the news).

I got to thinking.. Are environmentalists and liberals the real conservatives while conservatives radicals? At least coming from science (more specifically environmental science) aspect.. Liberals argue to fight for keeping the environment the way it is now while most republicans/conservatives turn a blind eye to climate change or simply say it is a hoax and in the same breath support oil companies + bringing the pipeline from Canada oil sands region. Does that not make the current conservatives radical and opposed to keeping things the way it is now/was in near past? Or is it simply lack of scientific knowledge or simply trying to uphold the support the republican party receives from oil companies?

I'm trying to figure out the most logical explanation for it.
