The 9 key facts about your global warming future that you are not hearing from the world's largest environmental groups.
Fact 1: Our governments were not prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic. They are even more unprepared for the global warming emergency. Our governments have ignored 35 years of global warming warnings by our best climate scientists, just like they have ignored the early advice of the world's best pandemic scientists.
Fact 2: We have reached a global warming level where only a worldwide, government-driven mass mobilization (similar to the mass mobilization that occurred before World War II) can save us in time! It is far too late for individual actions by themselves to achieve the critical 2025 global fossil fuel reductions needed to save us from global catastrophe and mass extinction.
(Part 3 of our Job One for Humanity Plan will show you how our governments can complete the required mass mobilization and required minimal levels of fossil fuel reductions to save us from catastrophe.)
Fact 3: Our governments are not telling us the truth about how bad global warming is going to get. Many catastrophic and even some extinction-level consequences are going to arrive far sooner than we have been told.
Because of our many decades of failed global warming reduction, some catastrophic and some extinction level consequences are already unavoidable!
Fact 4: If we keep going the way we are now, our governments are less than five years away (2025) from missing our last chance to reduce global fossil fuel use to the required levels to control our futures and to prevent the extinction of much of humanity by mid-century.
The minimum 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets will require almost us to reduce ALL global fossil use by 75%. This 75% global fossil fuel reduction target means that all developed countries (including China and India,) must reduce all auto, train, shipping, airline, industrial, agricultural, and home uses of all fossil fuels by 75% to meet these 2025 targets! (Most developing countries have considerably smaller 2025 reduction targets. This is because of their historic far lower levels of fossil fuel use and to maintain climate justice and fairness.
(Click here for all of the critical global 2025 fossil fuel reduction target details.)
Fact 5: Missing this 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets means that global warming is effectively removed from our meaningful control for centuries and that we also will not be able to prevent the most catastrophic of the worst global warming consequences from occurring.
If we fail to meet the 2025 targets, the immutable laws of climate physics take over! Because of heat, drought, and rain bombs, we also will not be able to prevent the widespread collapse of global agriculture. If we allow the widespread collapse of global agriculture, the human population will quickly starve and collapse to a fraction of what it is today.
As warned by the UN Secretary-General and the UN Climate Secretariat, if we miss these 2025 targets, the even worse runaway global warming consequence will eventually render our beautiful Planet Earth uninhabitable! (Runaway global warming means that global warming is on a runaway course and will continue to get warmer and warmer due to crossed internal tipping points of and by itself.)
Runaway global warming will only happen if we are not able to stop ourselves from crossing the four most critical extinction-accelerating global warming tipping points. If we do not make the 2025 global targets, we will not be able to stop ourselves from crossing the four most critical extinction-accelerating tipping points.
(Click here to read about how and when these four critical extinction-evoking tipping points will unfold during your lifetime.)
Fact 6: Despite horrible odds of reaching the critical 2025 targets, it is still technically possible to reach them as long as we immediately execute an all-out, worldwide government-driven mass mobilization. If our governments get us close to the 2025 targets, we can at least, slow down (but not stop) the coming mass extinction event would kill off much of humanity as soon as 2050. This unfolding mass extinction event would also, unfortunately, trigger an expanding collapse of the world economy, many nations, and much of our functioning civilization.
Because of these unthinkable consequences, we must do everything we can to meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and slow down the ongoing global warming extinction process.
(Click here to read how challenging it will be to reach the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.)
Fact 7: Only by getting close to the global 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets and successfully managing most of these other 11 non-global warming global challenges, will we give ourselves the needed time and resources to prevent a far worse total human extinction event from occurring around 2070 to 2100.
(If you think that either the mass or total extinction global warming threats are overstated, see this recent scientific summary by respected climate scientists.)
Fact 8: We are currently horribly behind where we need to be in reducing global fossil fuel use sufficiently to get even close to the 2025 global warming reduction targets. And, we are also failing miserably to manage most of these other 11 critical global challenges that are interacting with accelerating global warming to our detriment.
Consequently, this is the time for wise individuals and businesses to create their own Plan B survival backup plans. It is no longer reasonable to rely solely upon our poorly-performing and limited-resourced governments to save your family or business from the accelerating global warming emergency. (Plan B is simply a global warming emergency preparation, adaptation, and survival plan that might include migration or relocation to global warming safer areas.)
With your Plan B in place, you can still "keep working to help slow down global warming for the best possible global warming outcomes" after you have prepared your family and business for the soon-arriving worst possible outcomes.
By having a personalized Plan B at hand, you will be able to survive longer and more comfortably. And, if we can get through this global warming extinction emergency, you will have also preserved your possibility and oppertunity to once again thrive!
(Click here to see the many best possible outcomes if our governments act in time.)
Fact 9: Depending on your location, you should still have enough time to prepare for and adapt to the global warming consequences that have already become unavoidable. Additionally, at this perilous time, it is wholly appropriate to have an intelligent and mobilizing fear because of the known coming consequences of global warming.
While pure panic generally paralyzes, there are also positive reasons for why the emotion of fear exists. Where positive fear exists, and it is about REAL threats to your survival The right use of fear mobilizes the wise!
Here are the most critical global warming deadlines to remember to keep a wise and mobilizing fear useful and in the proper perspective:
a. The 5-year deadline: At this time, it is appropriate to admit it is all but impossible for us to reach the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. But, we still can slow down the extinction of much of humanity by mid-century and still maintain some level of control of our global warming future to prevent total extinction. To do this we must at least, get very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
b. The 7-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.) From 2020 to 2027 global warming consequences will steadily get worse in an accelerating linear progression. If you have prepared, adapted, and are in a global warming safer location before 2027 (Plan B), relative stability and security for your family and business are probable until around 2030 to 2040 depending upon your location.
(See this page, which discusses how to prepare and the safest and least safe places to ride out the global warming extinction emergency.)
c. The 10-15 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.) After 2030-2035 many additional climate, human, ecological, political, and financial tipping points will be crossed due to both global warming and these other critical global challenges getting worse. The stability and security of even the safest and best prepared global warming safer locations will lessen and become increasingly uncertain.
d. The 10-20 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.) Beginning around 2030, the frequency, severity, and size of 20 worst global warming consequences will move from an accelerating linear progression into an exponential progression. Stability and security for even the safest and best prepared global warming safer locations will become far more difficult and dangerous.
e. The 30-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.) As soon as by mid-century mass extinction for much of humanity is unavoidable. From 2030-2050 will be the most difficult period to survive for much to most of humanity. Generally, things will be only slightly better in global warming safer locations.
f. The 50-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.) We will face the worst consequences of runaway global warming and we will be heading toward the beginning of runaway greenhouse gas effect which ripped the atmosphere off Venus. Because of this escalating runaway global warming reality, humanity will likely face a total extinction event (what we describe as the Climageddon Scenario,) beginning as soon as 2070-2100.
There are many people who believe (or would like to believe,) that geoengineering, carbon capture, or some other new miracle technology will ride in like a knight on a white horse just in time to save humanity from the natural climate consequences of its decisions, actions, inactions, and mistakes.
(Click here to read about why this fairy tale carbon capture technology is not going to happen or will be "too little too late" to save us.)
Summary of the Nine Facts:
Because of many decades of grossly insufficient global warming reduction actions by our governments, we no longer can avoid mass extinction occurring for much of humanity by mid-century.
Therefore, because our governments have already failed to prevent the coming mass extinction it is now critical for our governments to finally act together and immediately to prevent total extinction later in the second half of this century.
To save humanity our governments must immediately mass mobilize using these correct actions to radically slow down global warming and get the world as close as possible to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, or no one will survive!
(Our governments must also begin enacting their designated Plan B worst-case strategies so that some of humanity and our civilization survive.)
Unfortunately, to prevent the needed painful changes and public panic, our governments and politicians will adamantly deny the above facts. Too many of our governments and environmental groups have been severely compromised by the money and influence of fossil fuel producing nations and the fossil fuel-related industries and their lobbyists.
To keep the public calm and ignorant of the extreme dangers, our governments will continue to regularly issue false and misleading global warming reduction progress reports. Our governments will also seek to distract us with false hope solutions like illusionary carbon capture and geoengineering schemes.
Despite the numerous and immense efforts to prevent widespread public access to the facts on this page, we must go where the science and the facts lead us. We must continue to speak truth to power no matter how uncomfortable those facts might be. Otherwise, we would not properly prepare for and adapt to the existing and constantly changing conditions so at least some of humanity can go on to survive and thrive.
