Curbing global warming or adapting to it?

It pains me to hear that some people have given up on their efforts to curb global warming. They are now up to save humans once again by adapting to the changes brought about by our own doing.

Should we curb to save mother earth and moderate our way of living? Or adapt and focus more on the human race than mother earth?

If we cannot live with an agrarian society in totality, there is no choice but to look to technology to save ourselves. The tipping point has been reached anyway, we need to adapt, mother earth can always start over.
