The earth is going in that direction regardless of what we are doing. As the sun ages (on its way to a red giant) it will swell up, increasing surface temperatures on earth until we end up looking like Mercury (and may be eventually absorbed by the sun).

Of course, this is on phenomenal time scales, so we will not notice the gradual temp increase ourselves.
