Uh, no, "we" don't know. We only know that the climate changes, that it has been warming steadily (with wide fluctuations) and sea level has been rising steadily since the end of the last ice age, and there is no conclusive evidence that says that the world will be worse for it.

CO2 is not a pollutant. The earth is not a terrarium. Higher levels of atmospheric CO2 can only have a minimal effect on temperatures, though they have had a positive effect on plant growth

We will need that energy if we are to successfully adapt to the next ice age.
Small changescause massive effects, such as Tsunami, Tidal waves, Hurricanes, Tornadoes , Drought and flood.

The best thing we could do is start lowering our population

Next best is reducing resource use per capita.

Also CO2 can increase growth rates of certain things, sadly those things are usually just poisonous algae blooms.
