How about having the shield painted- you probably don't look through it anyway.
Dark window tinting on the inside surface.
Cover the bike when parked.
Oh, I just thought of a revolutionary new product- the windshield cozy!!! (Not just for toasters and blenders anymore.) Ask someone's granny to knit one for you. Or use a pillow case.
Or, in the future, park front wheel facing the sun. I did this all of last summer, bike parked in the blazing sun from 7:30am-5:00pm. Never a problem with heat damaged plastic.
