I'm not "afraid" of either of them but climate change is more dangerous than terrorism. Terrorists can't inflict the kind of damage that chronic droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods etc will do.
Now, Russia has no reason to fear climate change. But that's because their country is too cold. Too much ice, requires too much fuel for heating, low ...[text shortened]... t climate (as has Southern Europe, China and Argentina). So climate change is not what we want.
Even in so called ideal climates, warmer is likely better. In the US, several degrees F, anywhere would not be catastrophic, and in many places would be welcomed.
That "climate change" would bring about the "chronic droughts, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods" is far from proven fact. In fact, fairly recent fluctuations regionally at least haven't been so catastrophic at all.
Greenland had a temporary warming, with a resulting migration to farm there, admittedly short lived, as the cold climate returned.
