Yes, but . . .
Ice is melting, and the world is heating up. For most people, this is easy to ignore and of little immediate consequence. However, there is a presidential election on the distant American horizon, and 'global warming' will be a topic that the Media and the electorate will use to separate the wheat from the chaff (I date myself with that, eh?). What is the spin? How do you make polling points on this without making a commitment? For Democrats, there is no turning back; they are all-in. However, Republicans are hedging their bets to appeal to their base but cannot afford to look like Luddites in the general election. This will be their spin --
Could we (7 billion people) negatively impact (screw up) our planet? Yes
Do a few thousand scientists know how to save it? No
The savvy candidates will concede the possibility and even the likelihood that we have created a problem. However, they will draw the line there. A popular refrain shall be "It is God's will." This position will be politically pious and highly defensible. It will resonate with everyone who wants to ignore the problem, a huge voting block.
When those who seek a scientific solution raise their voice, the political retort shall be, "A few scientists cannot be trusted with the future of the planet." Many unrelated instances of scientists being wrong (e.g., trans fats) will be cited as proof of their fallibility. In other words, the focus will shift to the lack of a divine solution, creating a cacophony of electoral static. Scientists will be the whipping boys, freeing the politicians to focus on their image and politically friendly topics such as ISIS or family values.
Does this mean that our planet may be doomed to thaw out and heat up entirely? That seems quite possible, unless another event such as a huge volcanic eruption or nuclear war causes a sudden global reversal. If such catastrophes do not happen, the full brunt of such warming will not be upon the electorate until everyone currently in power dies of old age. Politically speaking, that is beyond the horizon.
