The planet does not care about CO2. It will be fine. The only reason CO2 is even a concern is because it might have an economic impact on human societies. Since we are dealing with economic questions an economic analysis is necessary but it can't be based on lunatic statements like the 'planet will be destroyed'.

FWIW: if the most dire claims about AGW come true we are screwed no matter what we do now. So the only real choice is to assume that the outcomes are manageable and think about the relative cost of spending money now vs. later.

You're right, the planet doesn't care, and the planet can't do anything about it. We should care, and we can. Assuming is not acting.
