If you save a hundred people, but as a result cause a different hundred people to die, you have not really accomplished anything. Those you rescued will consider you a hero, but you have behaved no more morally than an ancient deity who decided randomly who lives and who dies. Those who admire Schindler ignore this.

The reason scientists are so eager we no not emit so much greenhouse gases that we go above 2.0°C (3.6°F) average global temperature increase, is not because humans would find it uncomfortably warm, but because that would cause a tipping point, where ice caps, glaciers, permafrost and methane clathrates melt which would accelerate the runaway temperature increase. Once we go past the tipping point, nothing we do to reduce emissions will be able to stop it. It will be like a well-stoked furnace.
