Paranoia will destroy ya
So far so good, but perhaps you will have to prove that it is really 'paranoia' and nothing else.
You will have to prove that the irresponsible pumping out into to the air to infinity of CO2 is not a threat to the economic and social development and the future of the biosphere on the planet.
That any concentration of CO2 into the air is not dangerous to the human health. For further details you may see: http://avogadro.chem.iastate.edu/MSDS/carbon_dioxide.pdf
That the threat for acidification of the ocean is 'irrational thinking' without any justification in the real world. You will have to prove that the ocean has not been acidified from pH 8.25 to pH 8,1 in the last few years only.
You will have to prove that this claim is not a delusion. That the average annual CO2 for the planet has not been increased from 390 ppm to 440 ppm in the last few years, and that the acidification of everything is absolutely safe to the biosphere and to the future of us and our folowers.
That the people excavating tar sands at production costs of USD 1.20 to produce oil at a price USD 1.00 by using for the production process of oil 23% more carbon emissions in comparison to conventional oil drills are 'economic geniuses' ... and are not the most irresponsible personalities on all indicators and for any age, etc.
A ... or are they going to leave us to rot?
Becareful, the men in white coats will be coming for you.

It is unexpected to me that you and I might somewhat agree on something. The growth-based system of global economics seems to me to be ultimately responsible for anthropogenic global warming.
There are reputable scientists who say that we're past the tipping point already, and that nothing we do will reverse the warming trend and the climatory consequences of it.
Climate change threatens irreversible and dangerous impacts, but options exist to limit its effects
IPCC PRESS RELEASE
COPENHAGEN, Nov 2 – Human influence on the climate system is clear and growing, with impacts observed on all continents. If left unchecked, climate change will increase the likelihood of severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystems. However, options are available to adapt to climate change and implementing stringent mitigations activities can ensure that the impacts of climate change remain within a manageable range, creating a brighter and more sustainable future.
These are among the key findings of the Synthesis Report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on Sunday. The Synthesis Report distils and integrates the findings of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report produced by over 800 scientists and released over the past 13 months – the most comprehensive assessment of climate change ever undertaken.
“We have the means to limit climate change,” said R. K. Pachauri, Chair of the IPCC. “The solutions are many and allow for continued economic and human development. All we need is the will to change, which we trust will be motivated by knowledge and an understanding of the science of climate change.”
If by Modern Money Mechanics you mean macroeconomics
Ultimately, of course, it boils down to basic, unbridled human greed on the part of a few key individuals. Greed for not only money and the things it can buy, but greed for power and prestige, coupled with a fatal disregard for the ecosystem as a whole and future generations of our own species.
Can one believe both in Money and in God?
