Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think it has more to do with institutional biases. Astrophysicists, after all, have their 'own' theory, and it's easy to become enamoured with a pet theory from your own field and dismiss the expertise in other fields (a point certain economists might want to keep in mind...), while high energy physics is... shall we say, a bit - ah - distanced even from the rest of physics. It would be impolite to mention ivory towers, but...

That being said, I've yet to see data that suggests that climate change denialism is more rampant among physicists, or some subset thereof, than among the general population.
