Human industry and CO2 emissions have little to do with the warming of the climate as they contribute less than 3% of GHG emissions vs natural sources. So in short yes, the climate is warming. No, humanity is not a primary driver. No, the 1.33 degree increase in global mean temp over a 150 year period is not going to end civilization. No, giving all your money to a carbon sink Ponzi scheme will not improve the situation.
No serious scientist credits even the meaningless rise you mention. They belly laugh at the conceit that we can - with ANY accuracy - state a mean global temperature TODAY - much less an AVERAGE for each of the last 150 years. It is ludicrous in the extreme.
Only the weakest ideas must be protected from debate, and only religions declare people heretics.

There is global warming and cooling based on the sun! A Hughs meteorologist told me that the earth and the moon track with the same average temperature. For some reason I do NOT think we exported any CO2 the moon!!!
