Great summary. Take your pick for emphasis.

“Burning all fossil fuels” would warm land areas on average about 20°C (36°F) and warm the poles a stunning 30°C (54°F). This “would make most of the planet uninhabitable by humans, thus calling into question strategies that emphasize adaptation to climate change.”[Hansen]

This overall trend is what you take home for measure. As the climate shifts and dominant mechanisms bring quickened effects, the local people get stuck while the scientists continue screaming the results of their global studies. The deniers must be traitors as humanity.
