Climate Change and Pascal's Wager

If anthropogenic climate change exists and nothing is done to moderate it, you lose everything, you lose absolutely. (Some people claim human extinction, I wouldn't go so far, but it might be a ninety percent die-off)

If, on the other hand, anthropogenic climate change is not true, and yet we have changed our life styles as if it were true, you only lose relatively. You only lose the "shop-till-you drop" three car, McMansion North American consumer life-style. (Many of us would see that as a gain and not a loss,)

Therefore the better option is to consider anthropogenic climate change as real and act accordingly.
