Words have power. Words can be fairly or unfairly used to frame a discussion to limit and control how the members of that discussion can think about the issues being presented, without ever knowing that their options to understand or solve that issue have been invisibly limited or controlled by an outside and invisible player. Unfortunately, this is exactly what has happened in today's global warming discussions.
The fossil fuel industry and its lobbyists have successfully reframed our global warming extinction emergency and greatly hindered the necessary discussions we should be having together because of it. They have done this by getting the worldwide media and even many unwitting environmental groups to continue to use the innocuous, vague and falsely pacifying words "climate change" when we should be discussing the very real, dangerous and upsetting global warming extinction emergency.
Propaganda redefines or confuses the common meaning of words or concepts to control the ability to think or hold specific thoughts within its targets. The fossil fuel industry has very successfully redefined and confused the issue of a real global warming extinction emergency into a nebulous, generally benign concept of the climate and weather always changing just as it is always done your whole life.
It's time to do something about this theft of our ability to think about a real global warming extinction emergency and an imminent threat to our existence.
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 caused by global warming primarily due to our burning of fossil fuels.
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 the escalating global warming extinction emergency and 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.

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,) educational organizations.
If you or any of your friends need to be better informed about why the world’s intelligence agencies need to immediately take over the annual global warming risk analysis from the United Nations, you can refer them to the following information, the global warming educational materials on the Job One For Humanity website, as well as the information summarized in the petition below.
With one click you can both sign the following 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 helping to resolve the global warming emergency. After signing, you will also receive the petition by email, which you can forward to other
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.

What will happen with this petition?
When we reach the required number of petition signatures, we will submit the following petition with all signatures to:
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.
- The intelligence agencies of other nations (provided you are from a foreign nation and you have entered your nationality information in your petition or joining profile sign-up form.) If you are not from the United States, you can also copy the above petition and send it directly to the various intelligence agencies in your nation.
We, the citizens of our nation and of our Earth, are endowed with certain rights, powers, and obligations, which demand we act to preserve and protect the future of humanity as well as Earth's other biological life.
Based on abundant scientific evidence, we recognize that our global climate is rapidly warming and becoming increasingly unstable due to human-caused atmospheric carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels. We also recognize that in spite of 35 years of credible scientific warnings, global warming is still rising and is now at dangerous levels!
We have already seen global warming-aggravated weather, like record-breaking floods, hurricanes, and wildfires. We have witnessed the "worst in centuries" droughts and dust storms. We have experienced alternating unseasonably cold then warm winters, extreme storms, bomb cyclones and rain bombs where weeks or months worth of rain falls in a few hours or a few days.
With our own eyes, we see that something very abnormal is happening to the previous stability of our normal weather and seasons and that global warming connected consequences (like those just mentioned,) are becoming more frequent, more severe and are affecting larger and larger areas!
We recognize that if we do not immediately and radically reduce our global fossil fuel burning behaviors before additional global warming tipping points are crossed, the destabilization of our climate will continue at even faster rates causing among other things, unprecedented crop failures and unthinkable mass starvation.
Our best climate scientists have calculated that if we do not meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, we will face mass human extinction (as much as 70-90% of humanity will likely die in as little as the next 30-50 years.) If we fail to make these 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets, escalating global warming will also become all but out of our control for decades!
Rising global warming has already become the 21st century's single greatest disruptor of economic, political and social stability. It also acts to amplify our other global problems.
No one is ultimately safe from this global warming emergency. Global warming consequences are already affecting millions in many areas of the world. Individuals and businesses are currently being forced to deal with escalating catastrophes, food and resource depletion, and the mass migration of desperate climagees (climate migrants.) In the not too distant future, global warming catastrophes will be affecting billions of individuals everywhere on Earth!
We now face a world in which rising global warming can cause mass human extinction and create increasing social, economic and political chaos, not sometime after 2100, but as soon as the next few decades.
As our average global temperatures continue to rise, the world's 6 other major social, economic and political problems will also worsen and cross-react with each other as well as with the key global warming tipping points (found here.)
Our other major global problems:
- Growing economic inequity, poverty, and instability
- War and regional conflicts
- Food and resource depletion
- Political instability and injustice
- Ocean fish stock depletion
- Water pollution, water table loss, and other pollution
- Desertification and deforestation
- Loss of biodiversity
- Increasing potential for pandemics and other global health crises
- Severe droughts, floods, and wildfires
- Rising sea levels
This will further increase the severity, frequency, and scale (size) of the above other major global problems we all now face, making them even harder to resolve!
Despite 35 years of scientific reports as well as 21 International conferences about the near-certain extinction effects of the carbon (and methane,) pollution of our atmosphere, global warming temperatures have both continued to rise and have accelerated to levels that have passed dangerous tipping points.
There is true urgency to this global warming extinction emergency!
Our average global temperature and atmospheric carbon levels are far too close to crossing the near-extinction and final extinction tipping points. If we fail to make the 2025 reduction targets, this extinction emergency becomes a no-win game for everyone, no matter how much money or power they might have and, no matter where they might try to escape to!
Our current global warming extinction emergency can only be resolved by immediately and radically reducing the human-caused production of carbon and other key greenhouse gases produced directly and indirectly from the global burning of fossil fuels.
At this "it is almost already too little too late" moment in history, the necessary fossil fuel use reductions needed to save us can only be achieved by successfully meeting our last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets lead and enforced by our governments!
Therefore, as global citizens of every nation on Earth, we demand that our national political leaders act now before it is too late to prevent mass human extinction within our lifetimes!
We demand that they:
1. Meet immediately to formally declare both a national and international Global Warming Extinction Emergency.
2. Pass enforceable and verifiable national and international laws that would successfully achieve the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. And,
3. Call for the immediate mass mobilization and allocation of ALL the necessary resources and personnel to execute ALL critical actions required to fully resolve our current global warming extinction emergency. (See Part 3 of the Job One for Humanity Plan for a complete list of all critical government-driven actions needed to save the future.)
By electronically signing this petition (in the box below,) I am personally and officially notifying my national politicians of this demand to immediately meet and take all required actions described in this emergency petition in order to protect, preserve, and advance the continuing evolution of humanity and life on Earth.
Furthermore, realizing that most of the worst global warming consequences will take centuries to thousands of years to repair, which will create an unthinkable nightmare for any surviving future generations, I further pledge to continue to act to help resolve this extinction threat and emergency until it is over.
