I am not arguing the temperature will not rise. The temperature will continue to rise and there will be negative effects. I just don't think they will be catastrophic for me.
How much are you willing to pay to attempt to reduce those negative effects? How much are you willing to force others to pay?
Fear mongering about environmental catastrophes, the extinction of the human race, and ad hominem attacks on those who question the appropriate response to climate change is why there continues to be inaction. In this case, I like inaction (it keeps my energy costs low).
