It is time to learn more about our four unique and groundbreaking Urban, Rural, Hybrid, and Virtual ClimateSafe Village models and discover their distinctive approach to sustainability, climate change resilience-building and community.
A good quick way to think about who we are and what we do is:
We are a non-profit educational organization providing open-access information and classes designed to help create a network of sustainable, climate change, and disaster-resilient urban and rural eco-communities we call ClimateSafe Villages.
To do this, we teach the subjects needed to protect, preserve, and expand the viability of humanity to evolve a safer world and a better future. We focus on the world's most dangerous and destructive problems, but more importantly, their solutions (such as establishing climate change-resistant and resilient organic food production and creating climate change and disaster-resilient eco-homes, eco-buildings, and eco-communities.

"ClimateSafe Villages is far more than just prepping for climate change or being a climate change prepper. Among many benefits, it offers uncensored and un-politicized climate change causes, facts, tools, analysis, and effective climate change resilience building, preparation, adaptation, and solutions." Lawrence Wollersheim
When we say we are creating survive and thrive new ClimateSafe Villages worldwide, people have many different ideas of what that means. They often think of similar communities like intentional communities, co-housing communities, sustainability communities, resilience communities, prepper communities, degrowth communities, ecovillages, conservation communities, simplicity communities, deep adaptation communities, evolutionary communities, agrihoods, progressive preppers, eco-prepper, farmers cooperatives, eco-spiritual, even survivalist communities.
While our four new ClimateSafe Village models may include and combine the best elements from many of these kinds of communities, they are also something new and quite unique. Our four ClimateSafe Village models also strive to transcend what we perceive to be the limitations, missing parts, or flaws in these other types of communities, and they are what you also could call true climate change-resilient survival communities.

Please Note: Nowhere on Earth will be 100% safe from all climate change consequences. But we can create climate-safer locations and communities using the practices of climate change preparation, adaptation, and resilience building. ClimateSafe Villages will help you make wherever you live as climate-safe as possible using these practices."
Why does the ClimateSafe Villages nonprofit organization exist?
Why are the wise preparing homes, businesses, and farms for rising climate change consequences?
The following article reviews, discusses, and links you to a professional video made by ABC TV in 2009 called Earth 2100. We are reviewing it and promoting it because it is even truer today than it was in 2009
This ABC TV video also helps explain why ClimateSafe Villages exist, and it does so considerably easier than all the climate science links on the Job One website or the documentation links at the bottom of this page. It may send a chill through your whole being.
Please watch this gripping video and share it with anyone you know who is seriously concerned about climate change and their future.
A little Job One history is relevant here
ClimateSafe Villages (CSV) grew from the climate research at the Job One climate change think tank. The networked climate researchers there understood that the climate change emergency would get much worse before it got better. They also could see from their climate research that creating climate change-resilient communities would be essential for long-term climate change survival.
This means that Climatesafe Villages came into existence because a small group of networked climate change researchers understood three things everyone should know about their climate change future:
1. many severe future climate change consequences are now unavoidable. (This is because our governments squandered the last 60 years with ineffective climate actions or no action.)
2. because of these unavoidable and soon-arriving climate change consequences, emergency preparation, intense adaptation, and resilience-building have now become mandatory actions that also must be completed at a community level to survive long term. (Individuals or families alone cannot do everything that needs to be prepared and managed.)
3. their most probable unprepared future would be climate change suffering, disruption, and likely death, and they also wanted to protect their families, children, and grandchildren.
Seeing their disturbing climate change future clearly, a team of volunteers at Job One then researched and developed a framework for what these new climate change-resilient communities must do to provide stable, long-term support and safety for their members.
The next challenge these climate researchers and educators had was to make the complex climate change knowledge they had acquired from studying tens of thousands of pages of climate science and research understood more easily. Many other individuals also needed to understand why these new CSV communities would be needed.
They did succeed to a degree, but still, few people were willing to spend the time reading long, complex pages of climate change science. Luckily, they also discovered the Earth 2100 ABC TV video that tells the story of our climate change future well without difficult science reading.
For those who do not want to read long climate science pages, this ABC TV video will quickly visualize the basic facts of your climate change future. It provides this information framed in an intriguing story about a girl born in 2009 and what she will face over the decades. We believe it may get you thinking deeply about how you will deal with our escalating climate change emergency.
This ABC TV video beautifully illuminates the future of humanity from 2009 to 2100. While we strongly recommend how good this video is, we also do so with important limitations and qualifications that we will share with you after you watch the video further down this page.
When you are done watching the ABC Earth 2100 video below, please fill in the survey below and continue reading the rest of the article because you also need to know the ABC TV video's climate change information has limitations and inaccuracies. Unfortunately, these "limitations and inaccuracies" make the concerns expressed in the movie even worse!
To watch the spellbinding ABC TV video, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDqRpM72Odg
Here are a few of the 2009 ABC video limitations and inaccuracies and the 2023 climate updates
Over half of the above video's climate change timeframe and consequence predictions are relatively accurate. But many other critical consequences and timeframes are underestimated by as much as 20 to 40%. We suspect ABC TV was using the widely available climate science funded or influenced by the well-funded global fossil fuel cartel's disinformation campaigns. (Click here if you are curious to see how the global fossil fuel cartel has wholly corrupted the process for fixing climate change, climate change severity predictions, and climate change timetables over the last 60 years.)
- Most of what the ABC video says will happen by 2100 will probably be happening between 2060 and 2070.
- ABC did get very close to James Hanson's research, where he said once humanity crosses the carbon 386 parts per million in the atmosphere level, global warming becomes runaway global warming. That occurred in 2015. (Hansen is one of the world's most respected climate change researchers.)
- At the end of the video, where ABC proposes climate change solutions, they are far from being in the correct priority sequence, and those ABC solutions will not save humanity in time from the worst climate change consequences! This ABC climate solution error is critical because they assert that our lives could be better by 2050 if we did the solutions they recommend. If we follow their suggestions, half the world's population will die by 2050. (See the documentation section below for the correct solutions governments must enact.)
- Their proposed climate solutions are also tech and Wall Street finance-friendly. The idea we will "invest our way out of this crisis" is nonsense and shows they do not understand the real climate change timeframes and consequences. We have to radically cut fossil fuels right now to have any hope of having even a much smaller portion of humanity surviving. Climate change "business as usual" means we will cross more extinction-level climate change tipping points from 2025-2031.
- Nowhere in the ABC climate solutions do they call for sacrifice for our own families and future generations.
- More 2023 climate change updates are in the documentation links below.
Yet, despite all of the video's underestimation problems, the ABC video will walk you through the many layers of what your future will be like if we don't make radical global fossil fuel cuts before 2025 is over. Additionally, because it is doubtful we will cut global fossil fuel emissions by the required 75% by 2025, this video powerfully illuminates why you must start preparing, adapting, and possibly creating ClimateSafe Villages-like eco-communities worldwide so someone survives.
The ABC TV video is also great because it visually helps many understand why so many other individuals are waking up to their climate change-driven future and facing why they must immediately start preparing, adapting, and building climate change resilience in their homes, businesses, and communities.
After watching this video, we recommend you take the survey below and learn more about how ClimateSafe Villages can help you survive and thrive through the climate change emergency longer and more comfortably.

This survey is merely a way for us to gauge potential interest and for you to indicate your openness to further discussions about the possibilities of this CSV village or its structure.
CSV is excited to announce that we are in the preliminary stages of forming our inaugural group of co-founding individuals who share our vision of creating a pioneering climate change-resilient eco-community. This community will be founded on the core principles and values that CSV holds dear, which include:
Climate Change Resilience: We aim to develop an eco-community (and an open access sharable eco-community model) that is not only aware of the challenges posed by climate change but is also prepared to adapt and thrive, and help others do so in the face of such challenges.
Equity: Our community will champion fairness and justice, ensuring that all members have equal opportunities and are treated with respect and dignity.
Education: We believe in the power of knowledge and will prioritize continuous learning and growth for all community members.
Environmental Sustainability: At the heart of our mission is a commitment to the environment. We will adopt practices that protect our planet and ensure a sustainable future for generations to come.

Click here to see the latest 2022 IPCC climate change summary report on the critical climate sensitivity error. Because of only this ongoing climate sensitivity error, the IPCC's newest climate consequence predictions, timeframes, and remedial action information will be underestimated by as much as 25% or more. (This 25% does not include the effect of the other IPCC errors described in the links just above.)
All of the above-linked decades of IPCC error, calculation, and polarization problems mean that the IPCC is an unreliable partner for truthful and accurate climate change information. Their climate consequence predictions, timeframes, and remedial action information are grossly underestimated by 25 - 50 %+ and possibly more!
A bit more CSV history
In 2023, Leonora Camner (now executive director at CSV) came to Job One and proposed creating the new eco-communities as a project separate from Job One's ongoing climate research and analysis. Job One agreed. That was the CSV organization's official birth.
Please also note that since 2019, Job One has been aware of numerous climate change researchers who have been quietly moving their families to locations that are safer from climate change consequences. When climate change researchers move their families away from the higher climate change risk areas, it is reasonable to conclude that the escalating climate threat to our future is real.
We hope you liked the climate educational value of the ABC TV Earth 2100 video as much as we did at Job One.
