As those radicals at USA Today put it:
The National Climate Assessment, released this week, adds to a mounting and overwhelming body of evidence that the effects of rising temperatures are here and now — and that even higher sea levels, more extreme weather and water shortages are in our future if nothing is done.
Addressing the threat won't be easy, or popular. But denying that a problem even exists — which is common among the most vocal of Republicans — risks branding the party as one that is anti-science and refuses to participate in constructive governance.
Or as Tom Toles drew it (referencing two studies on the Antarctic released Monday)
These politicians risk their party's future. We fear the loss of the future itself.
