Ranking Manmade Catastrophes

If the worst case scenario of Global Warming were to come about, how would its effects compare with other examples of real and imagined manmade catastrophes?

Would its effects be worse than war?

Would the people of Venezuela be worse off as a result of Global Warming as compared with the effects of the political and economic policies of President Hugo Chavez?

Would Global Warming be worse than devoting 20-50% of the US corn crop to the production of ethanol fuel?

How much would Intel be willing to pay today to prevent the 2100 destruction of all of its presently existing fabrication plants?

Which is worse? Your beachfront property will be flooded out in 2100 or you lose your house to the bank as the FED-induced real estate bubble collapses, assuming that your bank survives.

Name your own example.
