Based on the facts, it seems reasonable to conclude the climate is better for us today than it was 2 centuries ago because:
We are still slowly climbing out of the terrible period of the "Little Ice Age" (LIA).

Yet, according to this report, there are people who not only see this as bad but perceive it as the worst thing that could occur.

The publicized prognostications of climate catastrophe have given a lot of people the idea that this warming is in 'FACT' a bad thing. But the FACT is: So far, Global Warming has been good because it has brought us out of the LIA.

A second FACT is the ubiquitous predictions of doom (popular among the very religious and those who believe in Anthropogenic Carbon Dioxide Driven Catastrophic Global Climate Disruption) are, by definition,'opinions' and as such can only be perceived as the conclusions of the experts... never ever scientific fact.

So, logically...
Based on the facts: Global Warming is Good.
Based on opinion: Global Warming is Bad.

My choice is to use facts to support my view that Climate Change has been, on average, a good thing for life on a Earth.

To argue against the benefits of Global Warming one must challenge the facts with opinions... hardly a tenable position and clearly unsustainable.
