The 10 climate change facts the global fossil fuel cartel NEVER wants you to see

For six decades, the global fossil fuel cartel has been covertly keeping us and our politicians climate change stupid, befuddled, and paralyzed. Here's are the facts they kept from you.

The following is published by Job One for Humanity, an independent climate change think tank founded in 2008. It contains everything you need to know about climate change, and today's climate change emergency. 

The ten facts below contain the uncensored and unpoliticized science behind climate change consequences, solutions, timetables, and the required global fossil fuel reduction targets. 

The ten facts below are the climate facts that the global fossil fuel cartel NEVER wants you to see! This article below is not for children under 16 due to its serious adult matters.

Three factors concerning what you are about to read

1. We do not expect you to believe the following ten climate change facts unquestioningly. After each fact, you will find a brief expanded version with more details and links to the deeper climate science and analysis. 

For over a decade, we have repeatedly challenged any climate change scientist, think tank, university climate studies department, national intelligence agency,  corporate or investment risk and threat analyst department, and environmental groups (like World Wildlife Fund, GreenPeace, Nature Conservancy, EarthJustice, Sierra Club, Conservation International, Rainforest Alliance) to prove any of the ten facts and climate change analysis below wrong. As of this date, no individual or organization has been able to do so. 

But, the ultimate and best proof of the validity ten climate change facts and analysis below is when you personally experience one of the consequences of climate change discussed below. For some individuals, nothing will convince them until they witness one after another record-breaking extreme weather event which also break previous records. 

2. We understand how disturbing it might be for you to review the uncensored climate change facts below. Accordingly, we have also provided links to practical solutions tailored to the climate change remedies and resilience-building actions with the time left that you can personalize to maximize your local situation and resources. 

3. If you know about how climate change and global warming occur from the burning of fossil fuels, you will get the most from the following ten climate facts. If you do not understand what is causing today's climate change, click here for illustrations to learn how climate change happens.



This one pre-fact can change everything you believe or think you know about climate change, or its consequences, timetables and solutions

The global fossil fuel cartel is the invisible, dominant hand that distorts, underestimates, and unduly influences the climate change information you have been and are receiving from:

a. the media, 

b. your government,

c. the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (the IPCC,) the so-called world authority on climate change, and

d. almost all environmental and climate change educational groups. (These groups are still using the IPCC's periodic climate change summary reports to educate their members despite the ever-growing scientific acknowledgment of gross underestimation, critical climate calculation integrity distortions, and other conflict-of-interest problems within the IPCC's summary reports. Click here for a detailed history of IPCC summary report problems.)

The hidden global fossil fuel cartel's climate change censorship, disinformation and coercive influence actions are the main reason our governments have not fixed the climate change emergency over the last sixty-plus years. 

To open your mind to begin to see the hidden and invisible fossil fuel cartel's hand that censors and distorts almost all climate change information you are receiving, it is useful to cover some history that everyone already knows to be true. The global cigarette industry has a proven record of ten decades of successful misinformation, disinformation, false cigarette health risk studies, and funding of "independent" think tanks to produce questionable research saying smoking was not dangerous.

The cigarette industry also has an extensive public record of engaging in many undue influence and government regulation delaying tactics. Like the cigarette industry's tactics, the far better-funded global fossil fuel cartel's disinformation, regulation-delaying practices, and other tactics have successfully kept uncensored climate change facts, true climate change consequence severity, timeframes, and climate change solutions from you, your government, and the media for over six decades! 

Does that statement seem not possible?

For decades, the global cigarette industry convinced the world's politicians and citizens that cigarettes did not cause lung cancer, health problems, or death with only a fraction of the global fossil fuel cartel's 28 trillion dollar-a-year income. 

The fossil fuel cartel's lavishly-funded climate censorship actions are as follows:

  1. Global disinformation campaigns to make you believe we are making progress in fixing climate change when we are not.
  2. Global disinformation campaigns by funding think tanks and others to continuously create and spread clever new false doubts or confusion about the causes, consequences, and solutions surrounding climate change and the damages the fossil fuel cartel's products produce (without looking like this false information is coming from the fossil fuel industry.)
  3. Successfully delaying or killing government-level regulations designed to reduce fossil fuel usage or make the fossil fuel industry pay for the deadly pollution and other dangerous, costly consequences its products cause.
  4. Using climate change distortion tactics like creating false hopes that new technologies like carbon capture (or old technologies like the increased use of "cleaner" propane) will protect us now, save us at the last minute, or that we do not need to radically reduce our fossil fuel use immediately. The insidious purpose for creating these false hope and false progress distortion campaigns is to make you feel safe and secure when you are not and make you believe we are making the needed steady progress in fixing climate change when we are not. If you think there is no dire problem, you will do nothing to demand your politicians act to fix it. 

The global fossil fuel cartel is using the above tactics for one major reason: trillions of dollars in profits are at stake. Additionally, they are doing it because if the world's citizens knew the real climate change facts (found on this website) and understood that the global fossil fuel cartel had deliberately deceived them for decades, they would angrily demand that their politicians radically cut global fossil fuel use immediately. 


It is bitterly painful when someone finally realizes that the global fossil fuel cartel is entirely willing to sacrifice the assets (and lives) of billions of people and your children to satisfy their unquenchable greed for more profit (more super-yachts, more palaces, and more ridiculously luxurious lifestyles for key fossil fuel cartel owners, executives, and investors, etc.)

As you read the ten climate change facts below, it will help to ease the shock by being continually aware that the powerful hidden influence of the global fossil fuel cartel's censorship actions has also caused almost everything that you hear from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change in their globally accepted climate change summary reports to be underestimated by about 30-60% or more. Worse yet, our government, the global media, and most environmental groups fully rely on the IPCC's climate change summary reports for everything they are telling you about climate change consequences, timeframes, and solutions and all of that information is 30-60% underestimated. 

And, guess who benefits most from the IPCC's climate change summary report 30-60% climate change underestimation issues?

(Click here for a peer-reviewed 2023 climate change research article that supports IPCC summary report underestimation calculation range of 30-60%. It is but another shocking exposure of the decades-long gross underestimation of critical climate change data by the UN IPCC.)

This hidden IPCC gross underestimation and the fossil fuel cartel disinformation programs also means that in the future, you will need to discount everything you are hearing from your government, the media, or from your favorite environmental group about climate change by 30-60%.

This specifically means that:

a. everything the media, your governments, or the environmental groups say about climate change consequence severity will actually be 30-60% worse then they are telling you.

b. everything they say about climate change consequence timetables --- will occur 30-60% sooner than they are telling you. And,

c. every target date and target amount they tell you is the correct required amount for global fossil fuel use reduction will be 30-60% too little in global fossil fuel reductions and have a deadline at least 30-60% too late to keep humanity safe and not going extinct.

Only if you still think what we say about the global fossil fuel cartel distorting, censoring, and coercively and unduly influencing our governments, the media, environmental groups, and the climate summaries and solutions of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC) is untrue, or is, in any way, exaggerated, or that the cartel is not continuously spending billions on climate disinformation to protect it trillions in income, or the cartel is not working tirelessly to make you "climate change stupid," then keep exploring 1-5 below. Otherwise, move to the next headline section.  

1. Click here to read a shocking article by a trusted investigative global media newspaper that vigorously documents what we are saying about the global fossil fuel cartel in stunning black and white with painful proof examples. After reading this you will never doubt that you have been systematically lied to about our actual climate change condition and its real risk and urgency. The obscene amount of money that the cartel is willing to spend to make you and your politicians "climate change stupid" makes the cigarette companies expenditures look like a child's piggy bank.

2. Click here to see the hundreds of well-documented articles about the many ways and tactics the global fossil fuel cartel uses to ensure that our governments, the media, the United Nations, and the world's citizens do not ever demand reduced global fossil fuel use to the required levels to save their own lives and the lives of their children.

3. Here is another late 2023 peer-reviewed climate change research paper by James Hansen et al., which highlights the growing concerns about IPCC climate information accuracy and underscores the under-reported accelerating severity of coming climate change consequences as discussed in the ten facts below.

"For six decades, we have been lied to by the global fossil fuel cartel about the climate change risks, consequences, solutions, and time frames, solely to maintain their profits. They are spending billions on sophisticated global climate change disinformation campaigns to protect trillions in income." Dan Hardy, climate researcher

5. If you still have ANY doubts that the world's largest business cartel that rivals the power and income of our most powerful countries has been crushing you with climate change disinformation and other coercive actions so that the governments and citizens of the world cannot interfere with their 28 trillion dollars a year in income, please click here are read the details about the many crimes against the future of humanity this greed-driven cartel has committed over the decades.



Ten uncensored climate change facts that everyone needs to know before it is too late to fix the climate change emergency 

Fact 1. Our politicians and governments have utterly failed to fix the climate change emergency for the last six decades.

Our governments are not even making any effective progress or even close to the required progress on lowering greenhouse gases that could save humanity from eventual mass extinction. This failure is because of the ongoing climate change disinformation campaigns and the continuous and pervasive undue influence of the global fossil fuel cartel on our politicians and governments.

It is a horrible shock to hear that our governments have not made any effective or the required fossil fuel reduction use progress when the news, most environmental groups, and our politicians keep telling us climate change progress is being made.

Here is the simple proof that we are not making ANY climate change reduction progress, which the global fossil fuel cartel never wants you to see. Measuring atmospheric greenhouse gas levels is the most accurate measure of real climate change reduction progress. The graph below shows the story of the three major fossil fuel-burning atmospheric greenhouse gases, carbon (CO2), methane (CH4), and Nitrous Oxide (N2O). The numbers at the bottom of the illustration are the AD dates in history. The IPCC is the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. AR6 is the IPCC's climate summary report. NOAA is the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. PPB is parts per billion. PPM is parts per million.

Please notice how fast greenhouse gases have risen in the gray vertical rectangles on the right. Also, at around 1800 AD, greenhouse gases begin to increase far beyond any earlier levels. About 1800 AD was the beginning of the fossil fuel-burning industrial revolution. Particularly, notice how, from about 1950 to 1980, the rates of toxic and poisonous greenhouse gases going into our atmosphere began rising exponentially. 



As you can see from above, our governments have failed to make any real progress that reduces global fossil fuel use (as shown in the actual reduction of the three biggest and most dangerous greenhouse gases.) If our governments had made real progress, the lines on the greenhouse gases graph above would go down and not up at even faster and steeper rates.

Yes, the global fossil fuel cartel's wealth, disinformation, and undue influence tactics have caused our politicians worldwide to block the critical fossil fuel reduction regulations that would reduce global fossil fuel use to the levels required to save humanity and our future. The global fossil fuel cartel has also compromised the world's climate media coverage and the UN's IPCC climate change summary reports so that the media and the IPCC consistently censor and significantly underestimate:

a. the coming severity of climate consequences, 

b. the timetables for the most severe climate consequences and 

c. the correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets to avoid an endless chain of ever-worsening climate change catastrophes. 

It is also time to call out the single greatest force preventing our governments from ending the climate change emergency for what it is. Our governments and the media have been compromised and victimized by the biggest corporate fraud in history perpetrated by the global fossil fuel cartel.

Below is a graph with a shorter timeline for atmospheric carbon (C02.) As you can see, it has risen steadily for the last 60 years. This graph once again highlights the horrifying truth that despite what you hear in the media, your government, and every ill-informed environmental group not wanting to discourage its donors, there has been no real progress in reducing the dominant cause of the climate change emergency, which IS rising greenhouse gases.




Fact 2: Because of global fossil fuel cartel's fossil fuel reduction delaying tactics, by 2025-2031, the severity, frequency, and scale of climate change-driven extreme weather events will increase dramatically and far beyond where it is today!

Climate change-driven extreme weather events are defined, in part, as heatwaves, heat domes, droughts, wildfires, hurricanes, cyclones, tornados, floods, flooding, sea level rise, rain bombs, wind storms [Derechos], dust storms, wildfire smoke events, unseasonable cold spells, and other abnormal, unseasonal, or record-breaking weather related to rapidly accelerating climate change.

This sudden 2025-2031 dramatic increase in climate consequences is due to the accumulating, synergetic, and increasing atmospheric greenhouse gas pollution effects from over 200 years of fossil fuel burning and our crossing major climate change tipping points and climate feedback loops during the 2025-2031 period. 

If you remember nothing else from this section, remember this golden rule of climate change:

"The higher the average global temperature rises, the more severe, frequent, and larger the areas will be that will be affected by the many primary and secondary consequences of climate change."




Fact 3: Today's legitimate, survival-preserving global fossil fuel reduction targets require all developed countries and governments (including China and India) to compel their citizens and businesses to reduce ALL fossil fuel use by about 75% by 2025. 

The 2025 legitimate global fossil fuel reduction target is so high today because our governments wasted sixty years delaying global fossil fuel reductions when the required fossil fuel reductions could have been far more gradual and manageable. Our politicians, our governments, and the media are dead wrong when they tell you we must reduce global fossil fuel use only by 30- 40% or 50% by 2030, 2040, or 2050.

If we continue to use the global fossil fuel cartels unduly influenced and grossly underestimated global reduction targets, billions of us will die far sooner than you could imagine. If we are very lucky and our governments act today, we may still have until 2031 to reach that 75% level of global fossil fuel reduction.



Fact 4: Significantly missing the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and consequently crossing the last chance atmospheric carbon 450 parts per million (ppm) threshold will lead humanity into an accelerating cascade of worldwide climate change-related catastrophes.

It means:

a. When the final carbon 450 ppm threshold is crossed, the average global temperature will rise quickly toward and to 3 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. This higher temperature level will cause even more climate tipping points and feedbacks to be crossed. Once that happens, we will be unable to stop the average global temperature from rising to 4, 5, and likely 6 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels.

b. When carbon 450 ppm is crossed we will trigger the first mass extinction-accelerating global warming tipping point.

c. We will also enter the second phase of runaway global heating. (Runaway is defined as a thing running out of our control!) 

d. When we reach 3 or 4 degrees Celsius about preindustrial levels, we will once again cross even more climate change tipping points, activate more climate feedbacks and intensify more of the primary and secondary climate change-driven or interrelated consequences. (These primary and secondary climate change-driven consequences are described here.)

e. We will then face not just mass extinction by about 2050 but a near-certain, near-total human extinction by about 2050-2070. (Near-total human extinction means that, at best, we might save about thirty percent of humanity, and at worst, as little as one to two percent of humanity.) 

We are almost out of time to save ourselves and most of humanity. We are currently at the atmospheric carbon 420 ppm level.

We will soon enter the generally considered irreversible second phase of runaway global heating estimated to occur sometime between 2025 and 2031 when we closely approach or cross the carbon 450 ppm threshold. Irreversible here means that we will not be able to get the dangerous and toxic carbon and other polluting greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere for hundreds to thousands of years.

The renowned former NASA climate change scientist James Hansen warned the world that we would enter the first phase of runaway global heating when we pass the atmospheric carbon level of 386 ppm. That occurred in 2015.

Unfortunately, most people do not yet understand that staying below this last chance carbon 450 ppm level and threshold is the absolute minimum we must do for about 50% of humanity to survive. Even fewer people understand that the currently required 75% reduction in global fossil fuel use that we must quickly achieve is the ONLY effective remaining option to keep us below the carbon 450 ppm threshold and tipping point. 

If we are very fortunate, we may have as long as 2031 to do this, but only if we do not cross the carbon 450 ppm threshold. (We really should not even cross the carbon 425 ppm level because somewhere between carbon 425 ppm and crossing carbon 450 ppm is where we cross into phase 2 of runaway global heating.

Today, there is no more critical climate change target, deadline, or consequence to remember than this carbon 425-450 ppm threshold because:

a. If humanity crosses the final carbon 450 ppm threshold, only a tiny portion of humanity will survive.

b. After we cross carbon 450 ppm, any survivors will have to live through an unbearable climate change consequence hell and nightmare for centuries to thousands of years.

c. If we pass the carbon 450 ppm threshold, climate adaptation strategies will only slow humanity's near-total extinction process, where 30% to as low as 2% of humanity will survive.

We radically reduce global fossil fuel use immediately, or most of us die far sooner and more painfully than is imaginable." Dan Hardy, climate change researcher

(This unfolding post carbon 450 ppm future climate change hell and nightmare is described in full here.)

Never forget that crossing the carbon 450 ppm threshold and tipping point is the critical "point of no return" for centuries to millennia. It is the last extremely difficult, but still recoverable from and painfully manageable transition point.

It is the point of no return where everything that has made our climate stable and conducive enough for humanity to flourish for the previous 10,000 years will become dramatically more unstable, making survival more difficult at faster and faster rates. 

Carbon 450 ppm IS currently the critical tipping point where humanity triggers the physical climate change processes and consequences, which bring about its own mass extermination.

(For full details on why and how the last chance carbon 450 ppm threshold is critical to your survival, read this article. It explains all of the climate science on this survival-critical issue.) 

(Click here to see the extensive climate science supporting why we must immediately reduce global fossil fuel use by 75%.)

(Click here to see what most likely is our best hope and remaining way to prevent humanity from crossing the carbon 450 ppm tipping point and threshold to extinction.)


Fact 5: No matter what we do now, the mass extinction of about half of humanity by about 2050 is a near-certainty---unless we stay below our last chance carbon 450 ppm threshold.

This mass extinction is solely because our fossil fuel-compromised governments and politicians have not effectively reduced total global fossil fuel use during the last six decades when we could have gradually met the necessary reduction targets. Unavoidable mass extinction will also occur because we will cross more climate tipping points, cross more climate feedbacks, and we will accelerate other climate consequences. (For exactly how this mass human extinction will occur see this page.

Our climate change-driven mass extinction process will initially be driven by worldwide crop failures, low crop yields, global soaring food prices, and mass starvation caused by climate change-driven extreme and unseasonable weather, which will severely disrupt regular growing seasons. Additionally, about half of humanity will also go extinct by about 2050 because of increasing regional and national conflicts arising directly from mass climate change migrations and the rapid escalation of the primary and secondary climate change-driven consequences



Fact 6: With little remaining time left to act, the only effective way to save about 50% of humanity after 2050 from near-total extinction is for our governments to immediately enact laws forcing developed nations to reach the required 75% global fossil fuel reduction target to prevent crossing the carbon 450 ppm threshold (sometime between 2025 -2031.)

There is good news here, even with such horrible previous climate news. It is highly improbable that ALL of humanity will go extinct due to accelerating climate change. Life will go on for many who understand the climate change emergency and prepare for and manage it! (This good news is explained with many illustrations here. This page is one of the most important pages on our website for maintaining a rational perspective and emotional balance in the face of so much bad climate news. (It has been read millions of times.)

Click here for the many surprising reasons that it is highly unlikely that all of humanity will perish because of escalating climate change.



Here are the three what do we need to do to save humanity from climate change mass extinction facts.

Fact 7: We must bypass our compromised, cowardly, or incompetent politicians and governments and use the new Climate Justice Now program (or something else that is effective) to help reduce global fossil fuel use quickly.

Individual fossil fuel reduction actions alone (even if done by hundreds of millions of us) will not save about half of humanity perishing before 2050. This is fully because of 60 years of grossly negligent government and politician ineffectiveness created and enabled by the global fossil fuel cartel's powerful invisible hand controlling and disinforming our leaders.

And here is the challenge and paradox. 

1. Only massive government-enforced action to reduce global fossil fuel use by 75% by 2025 (maybe 2031 if we are super-lucky) can save the post-2050 climate survivors from the even worse and almost certain near-total extinction process (occurring from about 2050 to 2070.)

2. Our politicians and governments are not making the required 2025 global fossil fuel reductions and have not done so for the last 40 years.

This extreme danger means that we must bypass our politicians and governments until they start to act in meaningful and effective ways to fix the climate change emergency. How we, as individuals, small businesses, and local community governments, do this bypass is what we call the Climate Justice Now program. (This critical Climate Justice Now program is described on several pages beginning here.)

At some point, after we have globally enforced the Climate Justice Now program on the perpetrators of the climate change emergency, our misinformed, compromised, or cowardly politicians will finally begin to act at the state and national governmental levels to complete the many necessary government climate change fossil fuel reduction actions on climate restoration actions found in great detail here.

The good news is there is still a small remaining window of time until we cross the last chance carbon 450 ppm threshold and tipping point, allowing us to save much of the post-2050 remaining half of humanity, but again, only if we:

1. Tell everyone you know who has been the victim of climate change consequences and has suffered financial losses about the Climate Justice Now program so they can get financial restitution and be made whole. (You will learn why this is so important when you read about this program.)

When you tell anyone harmed by climate change about the Climate Justice Now program and the thousands of individual, business, and government global restitution lawsuits as described here, these lawsuits against the cartel will eventually push our politicians away from the cartel and toward protecting the lives and wellbeing of their citizens by fixing climate change.

This climate justice program will finally push our politicians and governments to radically reduce global fossil fuel use to get close to the survival-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.

Here are the detailed climate actions our governments must enforce

Here are additional effective ways to get our politicians to force our governments to finally act on effective fools' fuel reduction targets.

2. There is still an important but lesser role for individual actions to reduce fossil fuel use described here. While massive individual fossil fuel reductions are now too little and too late to save about half of humanity before about 2050, they still can play a significant role in what percentage of humanity survives after 2050.

(See this critical page to understand the important role that our steadily accumulating individual actions to reduce global fossil fuel use will play in helping save humanity once humanity finally forces its politicians and government to act after humanity has hit the climate change catastrophe "rock bottom. Steadily accumulating individual actions could help make the difference of as much as 30% of humanity surviving after 2050. If individual fossil fuel reduction actions do not continue to grow significantly, as few as five percent or less of humanity could survive until about 2070.

If we do not find some practical way (like the Climate Justice Now program) to immediately get global fossil fuel use down to the correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction target level (to prevent crossing our last chance carbon 450 ppm tipping point,) there is only the slightest possibility that there will be a world that you and I would want to or could inhabit not long after 2035-2040.


Fact 8: Everything our governments are currently doing to fix the climate change emergency is "far too little, far too late." Therefore, humanity must also adopt the climate change Plan B.

 Because effective government global fossil fuel use reduction is not happening at anything close to fast enough on the correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, our organization strongly recommends all individuals, businesses, communities, and nations ALSO immediately begin the Climate Change Plan B. Plan B contains many types of actions, particularly the urgently needed emergency preparations, critical adaptations, and climate change resilience building for the many climate change catastrophes we can no longer avoid.

If you live in a climate change high-risk area, Plan B also might include climate change migration or climate change relocation (or, in the government doublespeak climate change-driven, Managed Retreat. After 2025-2031, only about five percent of the world will be climate-safer locations where people will have the best chance to live longer with the fewest and least severe consequences of climate change.

Many wise individuals and businesses have already started their "Plan B" Climate change emergency preparation, adaptation, and survival plans. By enacting their Plan B emergency backup and resilience-building plans before 2025, when climate change consequences will begin to rise radically, these prudent individuals and organizations are ensuring they, their loved ones, businesses, communities, and nations will have the best chance to make it through the coming unavoidable climate change catastrophes. 

Many individuals are joining or creating urban, suburban, rural, hybrid, or virtual climate change-resilient eco-communities to support their Plan B actions. These new, supportive, climate change-resilient communities.are discussed in the video below and are discussed in detail here. We call them Climate-Safe Villages. 



Fact 9: There is still a lot of climate change good news to counterbalance government climate inaction.

Humanity can still:

a. save much of the other half of post-2050 humanity (if our governments do finally act.)

b. obtain these many worthwhile benefits in the step-by-step process of finally fixing the climate emergency. 

c. learn from the painful lessons coming from the climate catastrophe so we never let them happen again. 

d. experience many previously unattainable benefits inGreat Global Rebirth once the climate change emergency is finally fixed! 



Fact 10: We have no time left to be diverted by wild and unproven at the necessary scale "new technology" Silicon Valley get-rich-quick IPOs or other government-funded new tech schemes.

There is NO viable substitute for getting close to the required radical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction target, or we will face near-total extinction from the unstoppable unfolding of the primary and secondary climate change consequences.

No miracle "new technology" (like carbon capture or geo-engineering) currently exists at the needed scale or cost efficiency to save humanity from our accelerating global heating nightmare before about half of humanity is dead by about 2050. So, hoping for some "new technology" to be discovered and save humanity at the last minute before our critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction deadline and that can be scaled up in time without horrible side effects--- is another global fossil fuel cartel disinformation campaign, personal strategy destined for failure, and a costly illusion dooming much of humanity to extinction. 

Even if there was some safe, effective, and at-scale new technology climate change and global heating solution happening sometime in the future, no new technology climate change solution exists right now that is safe, effective, and at-scale, which could prevent us from crossing our last change carbon 450 ppm mass extinction threshold and tipping point. (Click here to see why the carbon 450 ppm threshold is our last chance to prevent mass human extinction.)

The only thing at this 11th hour that can keep more post-2050 climate survivors from experiencing near-total extinction is to immediately reduce ALL global fossil fuel use and get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. It is that simple.

If you are curious about why it is highly unlikely for humanity to go totally extinct, please read this article, and on this page, you will also see there is a place for appropriate, legitimate, and side effect-safe new technologies.

If you are interested in more about the timeframes that humanity will experience climate-related and other global catastrophes, please review the timeframe illustrations on this page.



In Summary: 

The relative stability of the climate of your younger memories is gone forever. Every day, as humanity burns more fossil fuels (which adds even more greenhouse gas pollution to our atmosphere), we will continue to break new records and make today's existing climate change problems and weather much worse for our future and the future of our children and future generations. 

Please keep in mind:

a. At least half of humanity has been condemned to horrible suffering and death because the global fossil fuel cartel has secretly hidden, distorted, manipulated, and underestimated the actual facts and dangers of the climate change emergency for more than 60 years from our governments and the media. Because of the fossil fuel cartel's behind-the-scenes manipulation of climate change facts, our governments, politicians, and media have kept the world's citizens in the dark about the true nature and urgency of the climate change threat. Consequently, our governments, politicians, and media have not mobilized the essential public understanding, support, or action to fix escalating climate change emergency. 

It is not accidental that our governments and politicians have utterly failed for 60 years to fix what truly is humanity's greatest escalating threat (other than immediate global thermonuclear war.) To protect their trillions in profits, the global fossil fuel cartel has deliberately been very busy using their every asset to make it impossible for the world's population to grasp the actual facts about our accelerating climate change extinction emergency.

b. Because of our government's 60 years of previous ineffective climate change actions, the half of humanity that will perish by about 2050 will mainly and unjustly occur in poorer third-world countries, which did not create the majority of the fossil fuel greenhouse gas air pollution.

c. Unless our global governments enforce the needed actions to get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, much of what remains of humanity's post-2050 will also perish between about 2050-2070.

d. Unless our global governments act to get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, the future of climate change is simple. Our current record-breaking and extreme weather will continue to break more records and will suddenly get far more extreme from 2025-about 2031 and then rapidly worsen from there.

e. Over the following decades, humanity is headed into an extraordinarily dangerous transitional period. However, wise individuals and businesses with access to uncensored climate information have already begun their Plan B preparations and adaptations to ensure that they can save and salvage as much of their families, businesses, and our collective future as possible. 

f. We have a horrible climate change dilemma. If we do not get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, about 50% of humanity will perish before 2050 because of 60 years of government inaction on the emergency. If we do get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, 50% of humanity will still perish by 2050 because of Garret's Climate Change Dilemma. The good news is that if we do get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel targets, at least some of humanity, as much as 30%, will survive from 2050 to 2070 and beyond.

g. The climate change emergency will no longer affect only your children or grandchildren. If you are a senior citizen living in many parts of the world, you are already experiencing the predicted consequences of climate change. As a senior citizen, you can no longer escape what we leave as a bitter climate legacy for our children and grandchildren. From now until the government acts, you, with everyone else, will be experiencing the steady intensification of many of the worst consequences of climate change. 

h. Many terrible and unavoidable consequences of climate change are already out of our control. All we can do now is vote, prepare, adapt, reduce our personal fossil fuel use, and build climate change-resilient And ClimateSafe communities while doing everything we can to force our governments to reduce global fossil fuel use. These are the save and salvage climate change "good deeds" still under our control where we can still do as much climate change good as possible.

i. Please take the additional time to read about the scope, scale, and facts of the accelerating climate change emergency, including its catastrophic consequences and timetables. This information will profoundly change how prudent individuals plan their lives and future.

The widely accepted Prudent Avoidance Principle is a precautionary principle in risk management. It states that reasonable efforts to minimize potential risks should be taken when the actual magnitude of the risks is unknown. There are many knowns (discussed above) and many unknowns concerning our future of the climate change emergency. Isn't it about time that our governments start taking effective, reasonable actions to minimize not only the known risks but also our serious and unknown climate change risks?

If you want to see a series of powerful graphic timeline illustrations for just how little time we have left as the climate gets wildly out of control, see the MIT Club of Rome's original collapse study and its four subsequent verification studies, along with the most recent climate change research, click here.

k. A wise way to think about the climate change risks and threats delineated in the above article is to think as follows:

1. Between 2025 and 2031, there will be a dramatic and dangerous increase in the severity, frequency, and size of areas affected by climate change consequences, and these dramatic consequence increases will continue unabated for decades. The worst climate change consequences are not beginning around 2060-2100, as you are currently being told.

2. Prepare and adapt now! Do not wait until 5, 10, 20, or more years from now.

l. By about 2035, it is estimated that 50-70 million people from Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and other parts of the world will try to enter the United States and Canada illegally. This mass migration will be because of the consequences of climate change, primarily affecting stable food production. The consequences of accelerating climate change will make living in their countries impossible.

Because climate change consequences severely affect stable food production, it will make a living in their own countries impossible to survive in; it is estimated that about 50-70 million people will try to enter the European Union and the Scandinavian countries from Africa, the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. Similar numbers of climate migrants from Southern China and Southeast Asia will attempt to enter southern Russia and Ukraine.

"Migrate of die" climate migrants (climagees) seeking climate asylum mainly from the developed countries responsible for the climate change emergency near or above the 45th parallel North will continue to be an unsolvable problem for the world until our governments make the radical fossil fuel cuts needed to reverse accelerating climate change consequences.

M . It is time to hold the global fossil fuel cartel criminally and financially responsible for the damages caused by their products and actions, namely massive property damage and property loss, escalating crop failures, mass migrations, worldwide starvation and malnutrition, and continually increasing tens of millions of annual deaths. The direct or indirect primary and secondary consequences of fossil fuel-induced climate change cause these growing financial losses and deaths.



By widely sharing this document person-to-person you personally help neutralize the cartel's well-funded climate change disinformation campaigns. 

This knowledge, once widely shared, will help illuminate the true urgency of our runaway global heating extinction emergency. Moreover, understanding the true urgency of the global heating emergency will eventually create the necessary public demand to get our politicians to begin a government-enforced global fossil fuel reduction plan that will work. 

The worst consequences of the runaway global heating extinction emergency will not be prevented or lessened unless:

1. You do your part to help educate others about today's uncensored climate facts before it is too late. 

2. We get our politicians to act. Click here for how to do that.

3. You get active on the many scalable solutions in the Job One for Humanity Plan B. 

Don't let the billions of dollars in fossil fuel cartel climate change disinformation win!

Help disempower the cartel also with the following critical climate change damage victim financial restitution action.

If you, or someone you know has experienced any damages to home, business, or farm from climate change-related consequences, you (or they) need to begin a lawsuit against all related parties ASAP. The good news is that it is now far easier to do than ever before. 

There are very wealthy companies that have either directed or caused the climate change emergency and the damages you have experienced or that should have informed you of the relevant and real climate change risks. 

The number of court cases focused on the global climate change crisis and its consequent damages has doubled since 2015, bringing the total number to over 2,000, according to a report led by European researchers last year. More than two dozen US cities and states are suing big oil, alleging the fossil fuel industry knew for decades about the dangers of burning coal, oil, and gas and actively hid that information from consumers and investors. 

If you have just experienced a climate change-related extreme weather event involving any heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, hurricanes and cyclones, flooding, rain bombs, wind storms (Derechos), dust storms, wildfire smoke events, unseasonable cold spells, and abnormal unseasonal weather and, you need to begin the process for financial recovery and restitution by reading this page as soon as possible due to time limitations on filing for restitution from harmful acts. This page will connect you to successful law firms handling this specialty.
