I don't suppose this will work; attempts to shift the frame are up against media organizations that consider Breitbart a high-flying achiever, rather than a racist and a fraud.

But it is good to press the point that we need to address climate change aggressively, at the risk of leaning too far forward, as they always say about wars that don't actually involve US security.

Hence climate hawks.

It's also worth remembering that if there is any bias in the scientific work on climate, it's more likely to understate than overstate the risk. Scientists don't like catastrophe theories, and also dislike making predictions that turn out to be wrong.
