Global warming is not caused by pollution at all. The most harmful pollutants actually cause cooling.So instead of acknowledging that they were wrong and global warming is a real phenomenon which is being contributed to if not caused by the massive amounts of pollution, they go full on stupid.
Warming is caused by greenhouse gases. Main contributors are water vapor and CO2 (in that order.) Both are essential for survival...not pollutants. The problem, as with anything, is excess.
The question is whether we releasing more and more CO2 is enhancing the natural greenhouse effect. The problem is the rates of warming have not been consistant with the amounts of CO2 being released. The rates of CO2 have steadily increased, warming has not. One side wants to ignore or dismiss the inconsistancies and blame humans for everything The other wants to find out why.
And another side simply doesn't care either way
