Enjoy the warm weather while it lasts.


They either don't care or refuse to entertain that as a possibility.
The shortest Milankovitch cycle is on a 23,000-year cycle.Interglacials average around 18,000-years,so we'd be early in 1,000-2000 years.We would have already seen some cooling if it weren't for the greenhouse gases.We may be able to overcome the astronomical forcing which drove past glaciations.The Solar irradiance plays only a minor role compared to greenhouse effect.The Sun's been dimming since 1960,while the planets been warming to record levels.

As to the economy,we're just recently finding out what it actually is.And the 'new' data says basically that,short of 100% carbon-capture and sequestration,plus removing all the carbon we've put in the atmosphere,we've got to get away from fossil-fuel combustion just as fast as we can,and damn the economy!
If your economic facts were 'real' it would be one thing,but they're not.
