The problem is, knowledge of "climate change" is widespread, but the opinion that it is a real problem is not. People in this country are not being directly affected by climate change yet, so the typical human knee jerk reaction has not kicked in. Looking at our options for this election, we are going to have to accept whatever small changes we can, and ultimately, I think that the only way to look at these problems is at a personal level for now. It is too overwhelming and depressing if you spend all of your time looking at the big picture. Many governments and companies have learned that doing things efficiently saves energy, emissions, and ultimately, money (Interface for example http://www.interfacesustainability.com/)... Like it or not, money drives this society. Money is something that everyone uderstands. And arguing on a fiscal basis is probably the best way to reach everyone, including the ones who don't see (or don't want to see) the bigger picture.
