Oh, so sorry Father, for not posting a quote just the way you like it. I'll know better for next time. Naughty me.
All very fascinating, obviously we both can't actually quote the entire report on here (although one of us is trying their hardest and it isn't me). But, the reason I quoted that one specific quote, is because it says exactly the opposite of what you keep saying, it isn't cherry picking. It is refuting your argument, there is a difference.
Yes of course the earth goes through climate change cycles, the reason we have a problem now though is because we are causing it to speed up and happen with more intensity, thus causing problems with eco systems and habitats of animals causing many species to die, water will become scarce in some parts of the world, the sea will rise flooding other parts of the world etc.
Father, that whole report basically comes back to one thing, the earth is warming at a greater speed than it naturally would, we are the cause, it will cause severe weather patterns, it will melt the ice caps.
I know you keep saying stuff like "it isn't as bad as projected". Yeah, so what? That is a good thing - it is still happening though. It hasn't actually stopped.
Here is a quote for you Father - I am going to put little inverted commas around it so you can see exactly where it is. I thought it was a cracker;
"Only those humans who have absolutely no empathy for the very young and the yet-to-be-born could reach a conclusion that given the information now available to decision-makers, that either we should ignore that information or that we should wilfully deny its importance. The negative impacts of climate change have already been significant to both human and non-human beings and to deliberately continue to impose negative change on life on Earth is now in the realm of the morally wicked. We know from the science the physics of climate change, we know that it is humans that cause enhanced climate change, we know what to do to prevent further climate change as we have carbon-free renewable energy technologies readily available; yet some humans think that we should do nothing about anthropogenic climate change. It is time to call those people out … their position is ethically evil."-

We now have a government in power that cares about making the rich richer, is funded by the wealthiest greediest people who care boing about poor and starving people, nor hospital funding. So please get real.
Most people who care about climate change care about people. They are not your usual conservative voters, and if you truly cared about those things I suspect your posts would come across a lot differently.
I think you need to do some reflictive thinking. Maybe reasses your values and what is truly important in life.
