While the effects of global warming both good and bad interest me, and I acknowledge potential for very bad things to happen, the thing most concerning to me is leveraging hysteria for political reasons- regardless of which side is misusing the topic. I can easily see people wanting to use this as an excuse to push "equality of outcomes" policy which even if initially is out of well-intentioned reasons, will be disastrous to most everyone except for those in political power.
