Should we be doing social and economic engineering that benefit some, and disadvantage others?

I had a late friend who passed at 95. She told me of times when she was a young child that it used to snow on the beaches here in San Diego. I rather like the currently mild weather and the year round bikini temperatures.

I have little doubt that the globe is warming. My only beef is that we have chosen to pin it all on CO2. What if we go ahead and spend trillions a year to mitigate CO2, hampering our advanced economies, only to find we guessed wrong and it was a combination of other factors we did not take into account?
