Second, they're wrong but we believe them and start doing what we can do to lower global warming. Then we lose money and comfort.

I would disagree with the conclusion of losing money and comfort. I'd restate it as "we move to renewable, non-greenhouse gas emitting sources of energy sooner than we would by waiting for carbon based fuels to be exhausted."
