    Here is the Petition

    All national and international efforts to contain and reverse escalating global warming depend upon the complete and accurate risk analysis of all key factors surrounding the global warming emergency. Currently, the recognized authority handling final global warming risk analysis is the under-resourced, underfunded Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the IPCC of the United Nations.) Unfortunately, having the IPCC act as the world's authority in this area has not been working well.

    The IPCC has been creating risk analysis reports and holding solution conferences for almost 30 years, and in spite of all their efforts, global warming causing carbon and methane in the atmosphere measured in particles per million (ppm) is rising—not slightly but exponentially! The reality of rapidly rising carbon ppm levels in our atmosphere when they should be dropping or at least leveling off is about as good a definition of global warming risk analysis and reduction failure as any rational person would need. By continuing to rely on the IPCC’s reports and conferences to resolve escalating global warming, we collectively are in essence doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result, which is the classic Einsteinian definition of insanity.

    In addition to failure to improve the global warming condition, the IPCC’s previous risk analysis reports have also been plagued with underestimation errors in the 20 to 40% range. They have also failed to adequately include critical global warming climate tipping point prediction scenarios whose consequences would make clear to our politicians what a hellish nightmare will occur if any of such global warming climate tipping points are crossed.  

    We are also getting global warming risk analysis updates from the IPCC too infrequently for the escalating nature of the emergency (about once every 5 to 7 years.) It is now obvious we are also getting global warming risk analyses from a clearly non-optimal source.

    It's time to stop engaging in this irrational false hope and failed experiment with an underfunded United Nations agency taking on the responsibility for the future of the whole world! It's time to assign the responsibility for creating an accurate risk analysis for the threat of global warming and annual updates to those organizations that are far more qualified, far better resourced and that have a far greater strategic interest in what’s at stake.

    The intelligence agencies of each nation are the ones that should be the primary parties tasked with creating a new escalating global warming risk analysis report as well as annual updates for their nations’ leaders, the people of their own nations and for the rest of humanity. Moving this responsibility away from the United Nations’ underfunded IPCC is a logical transference of threat research and threat risk analysis responsibilities to those who also are far more credible as well as legally and morally accountable for such risk and threat analysis for the individual nations of the world.

    Our national intelligence agencies already were established solely to protect the nations of the world from immediate, midterm and long-term threats to their security. Escalating global warming is the most serious risk to national security and humanity, other than a nuclear war, on immediate, midterm and long-term levels.

    Because of the preceding reasons, the full responsibility for all global warming risk analysis and annual update risk and progress reports needs to be assigned to where it should have always been! The intelligence agencies of the world have the budgets, resources and expertise of every kind to do these annual global warming risk analysis updates far better than an easily influenced, infiltrated and/or grossly underpaid IPCC staff and volunteers ever could.

    Additionally, the politicians of the nation whose intelligence agency has just produced the report will tend to give that report far more credibility than any report by an underfunded, under-resourced and expertise-challenged UN agency. Furthermore, not only would having these annual global warming reports produced by national intelligence agencies influence their national politicians more forcefully, but they also would more credibly educate and influence the public of that nation.

    This could also have the beneficial side effect of a better informed national public more forcefully holding their politicians to account for what they do with each new national intelligence agency risk analysis update on the escalating global warming emergency.

    By having every intelligence agency in the world produce its own annual risk analysis and public report on the current state of escalating global warming, we would also have inherent checks and balances against some other nations hiding critical global warming information that would benefit their nation and be adverse to other nations. In time, most national intelligence agencies would see the huge benefit of cooperating on certain levels of global warming research and sharing their risk analysis data and conclusions, realizing that escalating global warming is the one common exterior threat to all nations that will eventually undo human civilization and the stability of all nations.

    To properly and adequately create the new escalating global warming risk analysis and annual risk and progress updates, the intelligence agencies of all nations will also be required to include risk analysis and prediction scenarios that clearly show what will happen if any one or more of the critical global warming climate tipping points are crossed.

    Knowing and avoiding the critical global warming climate tipping points is paramount. If we do not know where these tipping points are and when and how they will likely unfold, we could easily unconsciously or inadvertently throw ourselves into irreversible global warming or extinction-level climate destabilization.

    Because of all of the reasons mentioned above, I hereby demand that the intelligence agencies of my nation take over all global warming risk analysis work from the United Nation’s IPCC. I also demand that these annual global warming risk analyses are made fully public, uncensored and shared with other intelligence agencies from other nations and their peoples.

    It is my strongest belief that by my nation’s intelligence agencies acting in this manner (producing credible annual global warming risk analysis and progress reports) they are also performing their sworn duties and obligations to protect our nation from all serious threats. I firmly believe that other than the case of immediate global thermonuclear war, no other threat poses greater national and global harm to our nation and more of humanity over a greater length of time than the escalating global warming emergency and its looming tipping points.

    In closing, I also demand that you make your position on this petition clear to the both myself and our nation’s public after you have received it.

    When we reach the required number of petition signatures, we will submit the following petition with all signatures to:

    1. All of the various intelligence agencies in the United States on your behalf, demanding that they authorize and mandate:

      • Taking overall global warming risk analysis responsibilities from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

      • That these new national intelligence agency global warming risk analyses are done annually and that they include multiple detailed risk scenario projections, including risk projections of crossing one or more of the global warming climate tipping points.

      • That these annual global warming risk analyses are made public without censorship and are presented by the intelligence agencies to the Congress and various agencies of the United States.

      • That these annual global warming risk analyses are shared with the other national intelligence agencies of the world to maximize accurate and useful information to all politicians in the world and to minimize any nation hiding information beneficial only to their nation as global warming continues to escalate.

  • Petition To Demand An Immediate Emergency Meeting Of World Leaders For Action On the Escalating Global Warming Emergency

    56 signatures

    Please read and then sign the petition form below and forward this linked petition to everyone you know, particularly other sustainability or global warming (aka climate change,) organizations.

    With one click you can both sign the petition and, if you use the share button, it will be electronically sent to your friends as well as people in power who are responsible for addressing the global warming emergency. If any of your friends need to be informed about why this emergency meeting needs to be called, you can refer them to the global warming educational materials on the Job One For Humanity website.

    We, the citizens of our nation and of our Earth, are endowed with certain rights, powers, and obligations, which demand we act both individually and collectively to protect and preserve the ongoing evolution of life on Earth, including our future generations.

    Based upon a preponderance of scientific evidence, we recognize our global climate is rapidly warming and becoming increasingly unstable due to human-caused carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels. If we do not change course before global warming tipping points are crossed, this destabilization of our climate will continue to cause ever-increasing suffering and potentially irreversible devastation for both current and future generations. If left unresolved, it could cause the extinction, or near extinction, of the human species.

    We further recognize that rapidly escalating global warming emergency and its consequent climate destabilization is the greatest current active threat to the security of all nations, comparable in the scope of impact to global nuclear war. Escalating average global temperature rises will lead to destabilization affecting first millions, then billions of people forced to deal with ongoing climate catastrophes, food and other resource depletion, and mass migrations.

    Nearly all of the major problems our world faces today worsen and multiply due to escalating global warming. All of the ecological, economic, and political problems listed below will cross-intensify and therefore worsen as average global temperatures rise.

    • Food and resource depletion
    • Severe droughts, floods, and wildfires
    • Rising sea levels
    • Water pollution and water table loss
    • Desertification and deforestation
    • Ocean fish stock depletion
    • Growing economic inequity, poverty, and instability
    • Political instability and injustice
    • War and regional conflicts
    • Increasing potential of pandemics and other health crises

    Despite 30 years of education, study, and discussion about the possible irreversible effects of human-caused carbon and methane pollution of our atmosphere, global warming temperatures have escalated to levels that may have already passed or be close to passing global warming tipping point with impacts that are irreversible. We must immediately reverse the continued rise of average global temperature by decreasing the human-caused production of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels. Failure to resolve global warming for ourselves and future generations is simply not a survivable option.

    The purposes of this emergency meeting of world leaders is as follows:

    1. Publicly declare that the national and international criteria for planning and implementing new laws to resolve the global warming emergency are to do only what is essential and effective in the properly prioritized sequence to keep us from crossing any critical global warming tipping points.

    2. Demand new, verifiable, and enforceable national and international laws that will effectively and quickly achieve the global warming reduction needed to avoid tipping points. These new laws must immediately: 
      1. create a revenue neutral, Fee and Dividend-based global warming reduction program.
      2. remove all government subsidies from fossil fuel energy generation.
      3. incentivize divestment from the fossil fuel energy generation industry.
      4. tax all fossil fuel profits at significantly higher rates.
      5. mandate that the fossil fuel corporations pay for all past and current environmental damage.
      6. mandate using Fee and Dividend revenue or other global warming-related revenues to provide generous government subsidies and incentives for expanding green energy generation and use.
      7. mandate using Fee and Dividend revenue or other global warming-related revenues to fund employee job retraining, as well as a business and nation recovery fund to assist all individuals, businesses, and nations that will suffer significant financial losses because of the rapidly falling use of fossil fuels.
      8. mandate using Fee and Dividend revenue or other global warming-related revenues to fund a global education and public relations campaign on why the public will have to comply with many new and difficult global warming reduction laws soon to be enforced by our governments.
      9. mandate using Fee and Dividend revenue or other global warming-related revenues to increase natural and technological carbon sequestration.
      10. authorize the International Monetary Fund, The World Bank, and other national and international bank transaction clearinghouses to impose and collect global warming law violation penalty fees.
      11. mandate the creation of a separate global warming emergency recovery reserve fund equal to 5% of national GDP.
      12. fund research into new, appropriate technologies that may become our last hope and backup plan to remove toxic carbon and methane pollution from the atmosphere before we go over the climate cliff.
      13. call for the immediate creation of a more accurate and complete global warming risk analysis, as well as mandating annual global warming risk analysis updates to be done by the respective intelligence agencies of each nation.

    As global citizens of every nation on Earth, we ask you, our national leaders, to immediately convene with all other national leaders from every country to pass effective, verifiable, and enforceable new laws to resolve the escalating global warming emergency before it is too late, and to sustainably protect, preserve, and advance the continued evolution of humanity and life on Earth.  

    By signing this petition now, I pledge to act together with others as one human family to acknowledge and resolve the escalating global warming-caused climate destabilization crisis.

  • signed Stop Saying "climate change" Pledge 2018-08-25 15:48:19 -0700

    Pledge to Stop Saying "Climate Change" for very Good Reasons

    Introduction

    Words have power. Words can be used to fairly or unfairly frame a discussion to limit and control how the members of that discussion can think about the issues being presented.

    This can be done without the members ever knowing that their thinking or options to understand or resolve that issue have been invisibly limited or controlled by outside or invisible forces. Unfortunately, this is precisely what has happened in the framing of today's global warming emergency and discussions.

    The fossil fuel industry and its lobbyists have successfully reframed our real global warming extinction emergency. This has dramatically hindered the public's ability to think accurately about this crisis.

    They have invisibly reframed the global warming emergency by getting governments, worldwide media, and even many unwitting environmental groups to use or continue to use the innocuous, vague, and relatively calming words "climate change." This is happening in a real crisis when we should be vigorously discussing the real and highly dangerous global warming extinction emergency.

    Propaganda in part often redefines or confuses the ordinary meaning of words and concepts to control the target of the propaganda's ability to think or hold specific "undesirable" concepts which the propaganda source does not want to be thought about.

    Here is how the fossil fuel industry has successfully redefined the global warming extinction emergency. The fossil fuel industry has redirected the mass public's attention away from the actual real threat and problem, global warming, to something that is not the core threat or problem.

    The fossil fuel industry vigorously promotes using the term climate change and not global warming. By doing so, it has turned a scary and real truth that needs to be dealt with on an urgent basis into the nebulous and benign concept that "the climate (weather) is always changing. Exactly the way it has customarily behaved during your whole life."

    Because of this intentional misdirection, people feel falsely safe and nothing much is done to deal with the ever-changing processes of our natural climate. Unfortunately, nothing could be farther from the truth!

    It's time to do something about this covert theft of our ability to think appropriately about the global warming emergency and its imminent threat to our existence.

    The pledge

    I hereby pledge to stop using the term “climate change.” Instead, I will use, the global warming extinction emergency, the global warming emergency, escalating global warming, out of control global warming or catastrophic climate destabilization to describe the current escalating increase in the Earth’s average global temperature and the ongoing and escalating destruction to our lives and the environment caused by global warming primarily due to our burning of fossil fuels. (It is ok to add the following AKA [also known as] terms [climate change, climate emergency, climate crisis, climate extinction crisis etc.,] after any of those more effective terms. This way your writing gets searched more widely on the Internet because unfortunately, those are the terms now more widely used.

    take-the-pledge-aqua.png

    I make this pledge because:

    • “Climate change” is a misleading term employed by the fossil fuel industry and its advocates to lull the media and the public into a false sense of security. This propaganda is intended to make the global warming extinction emergency seem more benign and non-threatening. It suggests the Earth’s climate is always in a natural state of climatic change, rather than global warming’s direct causation being from human-caused carbon and methane pollution now threatening the survival of humanity within our lifetimes.

    • Rising global temperatures are the most serious currently active challenge facing humanity, comparable in scope of impact to global nuclear war if such were to occur.

    • The idea of “natural” climate change diminishes the real seriousness of our human-caused escalating global warming extinction emergency and it does not directly implicate our increasing use of fossil fuels, and the resultant carbon and methane pollution, as the primary cause.

    I pledge that I will contest fossil fuels corporations and climate deniers misframing and falsely defining the real dangers of global warming by calling it climate change! We are facing an imminent global warming extinction threat and emergency that is already causing devastating losses due to drought, sea-level rise, air pollution, and increasingly severe weather.

    I choose to stop using the term “climate change.” By my action, I now bring more urgency and clarity to climate discussions by speaking the scientifically proven truth that our Earth is truly now experiencing a global warming extinction emergency caused by human actions.
