3.2 million years ago, the world might have been 10 degrees cooler, but it
was also a great deal different.

Your post seems to imply that if the climate warms up 10 degrees in the next
100 years, there's "no big deal". Sure - there's no big deal in the major
scheme of things. And you're right, the sky is not going to fall.

Just a few major cities will disappear under water.

Now you're free to do some calculations:
- How much does it cost to rebuild San Francisco and New York, among other
places, from scratch?
- How much does it cost to change our energy habits?
