I haven't seen definitive proof of either of those. In general, I prefer warmer weather.Yes. Climate change is detrimental to the environment and and will make it difficult/impossible for humans to continue to live in certain places and will alter the climate in places where certain agricultural activities have traditionally been done to the point that it can no longer be used for that activity.
Inaction will be much more costly than altering our behaviors.
In regards to the impact on sea levels and agriculture.
Wouldn't it be cheaper and more practical to simply
1) Build dikes in response to the former? Seems to have worked well for the Dutch.
2) Irrigate dry farmland? Seems to have worked well for millennia.
