"Die Schadenfreude wird Dir im Hals stecken bleiben."
Schadenfreude will get back at you.
Is a term deeming the people that experience "Schadenfreude" to be susceptible for the upcomming or imminent threat to experience also a same of a kind situation from the opposite side.
Because people that experience "Schadenfreude" tend not to concentrate on their own problems.
(Example: A car driver laughs about the owner of a broken luxury car, and does not concentrate on the car driving in front of him, where the driver does same thing plus braking to get a better view. Result tail bump and the "Schadenfreude" got back at you.)
In this case it's climate scientists have worked out that the climate is anthropologically influenced on a large scale.
But that influence is what we experience just right now and not what could happen in the future, these predictions with their various scenarios are essential to at least have an idea for example where settling could be dangerous or economically unfeasable.
All prediction on the future also need to take into account a changing behaviour and energy production landscape.
And this is how Schadenfreude has the tendency to get stuck in your throat and choke on you if you enjoy it for too long.
