The way I counter that is to argue it on the basis of pollution. Not only of the air we breathe, but water we drink, and food we eat. There are plenty of examples to readily demonstrate what pollution does to us. You don't have to explain the effect of greenhouse gasses. Breathing polluted air is not good for your health.
