Stay with me here. The climate that we would call "normal" during our life time is near ideal for crops. If it gets colder, such as was recorded for the little ice age period in medieval Europe (I assume that is what your are talking abut when you mention cooling periods), people are going to do worse. That time period included the "year without a summer". That is a pretty strong indication that crops will not do well that year. Now, if things get warmer than the ideal conditions it doesn't mean things are going to get better.

For example I just baked a pumpkin pie. I baked it at 350 F. The pie baked better at 350 F than it would have at 300 F. Does that mean I should bake it at 400F?

It just make no sense to compare conditions when it is colder than normal to conditions when it is hotter than normal.

I take it you didn't read those economic reports on what happened as to who caused what.
You did not say "trees" in your initial post about the "benefits" of climate change:

A warmer climate benefits mankind more than a cooler climate. Longer growing seasons and less fuel to heat homes. I'll take it.
You mentioned a longer growing season and that it would benefit mankind. That points to food crops.
