    Large picture: our present day, and the upcoming future humanity has engineered for earth, holds only tumult, death, and desperation. There is no way past that reality. I’m 73 years old and I cannot envision how humanity can “science” its way out of the desperate consequences that we are and will continue to experience in every increasing amplitude. As a species “man” is not equipped psychologically, emotionally, or socially to jump out of our current way of living to stop the damage that is ongoing. We are in a trap of our own making. It’s likely that Nature will eliminate us and move on to the next iteration of its alpha life form…which may be jellyfish for a few million years…as the planet resets.
    Small picture: I cannot fathom how anything will change culturally, politically, or economically by 2025-2030. Most people will still be in denial about the horrific future that is unfolding for the planet. I also don’t think the climate path will be a straight line to “hot everywhere.” If the ocean currents are disrupted that could be a very rapid impact that will disrupt economies, politics, and institutions. Parts of the world could go into a deep freeze for some period of time. People will be in a panic. It’s difficult to game-out what happens then.

    I admire the Job One effort in bringing this discussion to the public. When I first started reading about the climate emergency I thought maybe actions would be taken to reduce carbon emissions. But that is not happening. Then I thought about Plan B, and the possible strategies of trying to wiggle through the warming catastrophe to live a little longer within the ravages of a hot world. But the coldest parts of the world right now are having the biggest changes. Where I live in North Carolina there are warming effects, more flooding and so on, but the state overall is not as dramatically impacted as say Greenland with its melting glaciers (as one example). Anyway, it’s probably not possible to out maneuverer such dramatic and chaotic change. Plus changes are happening faster than were predicted just a few years ago. I’m coming to the conclusion that I’ll just have to act locally as seems best and live through or die in whatever hot mess is to coming this way. Maybe, in the long run, some little pockets of human society will continue to exist here and there on Earth. Or, we will just be gone as an advanced technology species because we could not figure out how to coexist with our living planet.

    Lawrence, two rich guys (Musk and Bezos) talk about living on Mars or on spaceships as possible ways to continue humanity post Climageddon. They also spend lots of money related to their concepts of survival in space. Would it not be less fantastical for a government or group to prepare outposts on our actual planet Earth that could be hardened with advanced survival technology to create a hail Mary chance that some small group of humans might preserve knowledge and genetic variety that would allow a human presence to continue on Earth in its version 2.0 climate? It might not work, but should the attempt be made? Are you aware of any such attempts being talked about or planned?

    1. You will receive ebook copies of four critical new books relevant to global warming and other global issues:

    a. The first free ebook is Climageddon; the Global Warming Survival Kit is an $8.95 value. This ebook is getting great reviews on Amazon and, you can download it in one of the three most popular ebook reader formats. 

    b. For those who do not like reading complex scientific research and still want to be entertained and educated about this challenging subject. We have just added the ebook version of "On Vestige Way" by David Spielberg (a $9.00 ebook value.) It is an emotion-packed CLI-Fi (climate fiction) novel about how global warming affects the future and fate of the world's Millennials, generation Z, corporations. It also describes a massive rearrangement of the political alliances we take for granted. 

    It is so hard to put down you will be missing work and sleep wondering what happens next to the story's heroes and heroines struggling with the genuine global warming future the younger generations will face. Yet, it is one of the most scientifically accurate of all of the CLI-FI books we have reviewed. (The author, like the other listed authors, made their Ebooks available to us because they wanted to support our critical mission work!)

    c. You will also receive a free ebook copy of Climate and Ecological Delusions and Contradictions that Will Soon End Humanity by Michael MielkeThis $8.95 value ebook explains and elaborates in great detail on the carbon capture technology delusion and the many other global crises we face.

    d. You will also receive a free ebook copy of Collapse 2020, Vol 1: Fall of the First Global Civilization by Bruce Nappi. This $8.95 value ebook lays out a strong case on why we must prepare for the first-ever global warming-aggravated, global collapse coming within mere decades. Collapse 2020 digs into the major chaos of today’s world: climate change, liberal-conservative polarization, gridlock in governments, and massive social injustice.

    While the four free ebooks above are an excellent extra benefit for making only a $9.00 donation and becoming a member (or renewing membership), there are other valuable reasons why you will want to have access to the members-only section of our website!

    2. You will receive valuable global warming migration evaluation information. The members-only area of our website also will provide critical details on how and when the consequences of the global warming emergency can affect your investments, financial transactions, real estate, and even your individual or business physical survival. Luckily, you will not have to spend tens of thousands of dollars a year (like the ultra-wealthy) to access it.

    3. As a member, you will not only be able to know what the ultra-wealthy know about our global warming future, but also what they don't know (unless of course, they are also members of Job One.) Our nonprofit organization has spent almost $100,000 acquiring and doing the research needed for the information found in the members-only section.

    Hedge funds, investment bankers, real estate conglomerates, and ultra-wealthy individuals and corporations all over the world are already spending tens of thousands of dollars each year with global warming risk analysis companies to have access to the kind of information that you will find in our members-only section. Trillions in personal and corporate wealth will either be made or lost because one either understands or does not understand the many unfolding consequences of our rapidly accelerating global warming emergency.

    B.) As a member, you also will have full access to critical, non-public global warming emergency information

    You will have access to:

    1. well-researched global warming migration and relocation options for the limited global warming safer zones for individuals, families, and businesses. This includes an extensive global warming migration and relocation checklist for the US and a listing of the global warming safest cities and regions.

    2. member-only first alerts and early warnings about the coming global warming catastrophes,

    3. member-only exclusive global warming emergency preparation and adaptation information for your family, home, and business,  

    4. critical prediction information on how, when, and where the escalating global warming emergency will affect:

    a. local, regional, and national real estate values and finances,

    b. stock market values, specifically corporations whose stocks and bonds will be most affected as the global warming emergency worsens,

    c. commodity prices as regionalized crops and other commodities fail because of increased heat or other global warming consequences, as well as which food prices will rise the fastest, etc.,

    d. increased political conflict or instability probabilities particularly relating to a nation's regionalized specific global warming consequences.

    In addition to the above, your donations provide critical financial support for our non-profit organization's ongoing research and mission and, they help keep many other areas of our website information free to the public. 

    Why donate and become a member now?

    When you donate nine dollars (or hopefully more,) you:

    1. become a member for one year and you receive all of the many valuable members-only benefits listed above.

    2. help us promote the effective Job One for Humanityglobal warming survival plan and our mission-focused on serving the public good and doing everything necessary to slow or prevent a global warming-caused mass extinction event

    What could be more important to support and be a part of? 

    Here is what donations helped us do in 2020

    All of the following was done by our all-volunteer staff because of your financial support:

    According to Google Analytics:

    a. Some 325,000 unique visitors viewed our websites.

    b. About 6,000 hours of free online education on global warming and what we must do for a more sustainable life occurred in 2020.

    About ten years ago, with our sister website, The Association for the Tree of Life, we introduced the idea that we need to declare an immediate climate and global warming state of emergency. We began promoting this idea to hundreds of our peer environmental organizations worldwide. Here is what has happened since we introduced the global warming emergency idea:

    a. Over 1,800 cities and towns in the US and around the world have declared local or regional global warming-related states of emergency.

    b. The Oxford Dictionary named "Climate Emergency" the Word of the Year 2019.

    c. In the media you now hear about the climate or global warming emergency on a daily basis.

    d. We (Job One and the Tree of Life) are about to cross the 20,000 petition signature level for our global warming emergency petition. (These will soon be sent out around the world to influence various governmental climate regulators.)

    e. We have also created a practical and honest plan for dealing with the global warming emergency that has real fossil fuel reduction amounts and timetables that will allow us to have hope for a livable future. (It is called the Job One for Humanity, Survive and Thrive Plan.)

  • commented on The 5 most important global warming facts that will help you save your life, business and loved ones! 2019-01-30 12:34:56 -0800
    Lawrence,

    I want to thank you for leading an effort to make people aware of the life-ending disasters we face with climate change (global warming).

    The information you present and the scenarios your describe that are supported by science are distressing in the extreme.

    I find your best advice about planning ahead for the coming catastrophe to be the parts suggesting living in the moment and taking life day-by-day.

    It seems certain that what we see in nature now and in ourselves as human beings will all be passing away over the coming few decades.

    We must enjoy what exists now and mourn it simultaneously.

    Perhaps the ultra-rich will survive in some scattered enclaves here and there on earth; but it probably will be a desperate survival with little joy. Hubris is rarely rewarded by nature.

    But even so, if I were a young person I would be very motivated to follow many of your prescriptions for preparation as a way to live as comfortable as possible for as long as possible. I would already be migrating to Alaska or Canada or at least in some artic-like direction. But it’s too late for me as an elderly person to be in a mindset of trying to adapt to extreme challenge. That’s a young (and fit) person’s game.

    The best I can do is to look at the spiritual aspects of life in the day-to-day while staying active and aware and staying as fit as my aging body allows me to be.

    I do hope humankind survives in some form, but the odds are tilted heavily toward extinction. The universe will have to find some other consciousness to reveal itself to.

    In the meantime, I will work on my mental outlook and get all the joy I can out of the years of conscious delight that are left for me.

    Thank you for that insight.

    Ed

  • commented on We’re Losing the Global Warming and Environmental Protection Races: “So, What Do We Do Now?” 2019-01-10 17:10:27 -0800
    The information available about global warming is formidable; and I do not doubt its veracity. The future-vision revealed by the science is actually overwhelming. I turn 71 years old in 2019. My generation will fade out just has CO2 levels get to the death-of-humanity-locked-in level. What I wonder about is what happens to human society over the next 10 to 20 years as the effects of global warming become more and more evident to the general population. Living in denial allows society to hold together as it’s currently constructed. But once the seriousness of the climate situation is widely realized politics will change, and not for the better. I can imagine scenarios where people living in Alaska, Canada, Russia, New Zealand begin to take actions to protect their territories from the hordes of people who will want to move out of the hot zones. Alaska might separate from the US and align with Canada or even Russia. Old people like myself living in the hot zones will be abandoned. The need for survival will justify many cruelties. People & societies that have the knowledge & wherewithal available to deploy in laboratories will develop coping strategies using genetic manipulation and human-to-AI combinations. And then there will be religion added to the CRAZY. What happens when Jerusalem and Mecca have to be abandoned? The insanity will be unstoppable. I truly believe that human reactions to a hot Earth will accelerate the sudden collapse of civilization as we know it now. Have you or others looked at the psychological and religious aspects of tipping points? Is there an estimation of the year people generally will accept the reality of the approaching hothouse Earth? Could societies in 2030 be psychologically traumatized by climate reality to such a degree that everything we have known suddenly collapses into a frenzy for survival—the weak be dammed?

    I have this feeling when you see a nasty storm brewing. The wind and clouds and smell are clear to anyone who looks. But somehow people refuse to look; and if they do look they think the storm will skirt around somehow. And there are almost 10 billion of us! Our current rules of society and economics are not sustainable. The storm will hit. It will not miss us. Humans are about to be culled not by space aliens but by our own societal structures an innate fears that hold us back from quick and radical changes. Perhaps some form of a human descendant will exist in the far north augmented by artificial intelligence, but life will no longer be what we experience now. My only uncertainty is about the timeline; how fast will the changes happen? Will I live to see our demise acknowledged and accepted? Pity our children who will never know a world of peace and stability.
