Leaving aside the weight of evidence for a moment, let’s ask this: in which scenario do we have the most to lose?
We attack global warming and are wrong: we might waste some resources, but we’ll have cleaner air and water and less dependence on fossil fuels.

TVA operates the Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant, about 100 miles south of Nashville, Tenn., where raw water is pumped through a network of tubes to help cool the reactors.
That water — which never touches radioactive material — is then chilled by a series of cooling towers and eventually dumped back into the Tennessee River.
But TVA — a federal agency that also operates two other nuclear plants in Tennessee — said soaring summer temperatures Sunday caused water in the river to rapidly heat, forcing the company to cut power production by 50 percent at all three 1,100-megawatt reactors.
And when the droughts come, there won’t be much water to overheat !
Solar and wind don’t need water.
