Yep. We are indeed responsible for believing that climate change isn't the problem.So your parents never took you to church?
Okay, then your blind faith is utterly unexplainable. You clearly have no evidence to support your beliefs, so why do you think they must be true, Steve?
I have read that previously. God lied. He said they would die the day they ate the fruit. they did not. So what is your point?
What do you understand the point of Gen 3:22? If they had eaten from the Tree of Life, what would they have got from it?
No one wants to be tortured by God for eternity in fire. This is just something Christians like to tell themselves so they can rationalise away the simple fact that God tortures those who reject him to punish them. It says so in the Bible, Steve.
Mat 25:46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
Please do not lie and pretend this is because the victim wants it.
Because he is supposedly good, merciful and loving. Of course, that is not really true is? Vindictive and sadistic sounds more appropriate.
And not what he should.
It comes down to whether he really loves me, I guess.
Worth noting that the people who seem most hell bent on destroying the planet are climate-change denying Christians. See for example:

He just does not love me enough to stop himself punishing me forever.
Right. So the problem is God. He has decided he needs to punish five billion humans who are not Christians by torturing them for ever. As you point out, there is no need. We do not HAVE to spend your eternity in the lake of fire. It is what God chooses.
The changes in the climate described in the bible I'm thinking is the result of humankind's attempts at "fixing" what they thought was humankind's caused climate changes.
I.e., just because you can doesn't mean that you should.
Don't worry though.
There will come a day when you will be able to destroy yourself and your fellow humans.
