but does it matter if in a couple centuries or so (by some estimates apparently) we are all flooded out when the ice caps melt completely?

the ice caps melting most people would argue is a direct result of our technological progress not because of a natural phenomenon

And Science is the only reason we know that's happening and that we should try and stop it. 

true, but suppose we can't as many scientists appear to believe... then we could lay the blame for the destruction of our world on science couldn't we?
