"Global warming" would not cause immediate higher temperatures, but a destabilization of the climate. Things will get colder in some areas, warmer in others, and the temperature will fluctuate a lot. The biggest problem with the destabilization will be the extreme weather, like hurricanes. If things continue to destabilize there will be many more hurricanes like Katrina and they will be larger.
If you know a little about history you will know about the Little Ice Age.
As you can see from the following chart:

coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have
