You could argue that CO2 emissions are a result of our great demand for energy; the more energy we have, the greater our overall productivity. With the extra productivity we can focus more on technological research, which would facilitate the development of a solution(s) to the global warming issue. So while we would exaggerate global warming within the next hundred years, we would still ultimately benefit in the long run.
