My biggest problem with global warming apocalyptics

Here is my biggest problem with the global warming crowd. Let's pretend for a moment that they are right. What does man (and all warm blooded life, for that matter) have a more difficult time adjusting to-warmth or cold? With additional warmth, man can still grow crops and wild mammals can still find food. With increased cold, crops become difficult to grow in sufficient quantities and large winter starve-offs of mammals are common. So while we would have to figure out how to adapt, would warming really be the end of the world?

And this leads into my biggest pet peeve about the 20th/21st century environmental movement. The natural state of nature is change. This entire planet is in a continual state of flux. Still, for some reason our environmentalist consciouses want to freeze nature in it's appearance as of sometime in 1970. That is about the most anti-environment mindset I can think of.
