  • commented on The Essential Climate Change and Global Heating Facts Everyone Should Know 2022-08-07 17:46:12 -0700
    I am of an advanced age being in my mid-seventies. I comment frequently on Medium when responding to posted articles about our climate emergency. Not always, but often, I will reference Job One for Humanity as a good source for the facts and projections about where we have been and where we are headed in our current extinction event. The basic truth that the laws of nature will severely cut back the human population by billions of individuals globally in the next few decades is a sobering reality. As a resident of North Carolina and the United States my speculations about how the climate emergency will shape federal and state politics consume a lot of my brain time. It takes a deliberate act of will to stay engaged with near-term discussions about the retrograde actions of the American right wing when one is simultaneously thinking that by 2030 the consequences of global heating will be driving human death, relocation, and conflict—not arguments over Critical Race Theory, abortion, or the demise of the entire capitalist economic system that supports the American Way of exploitation. The uncertainty of how life will reorganize in the USA during the coming collapse of many individual state governments where drought will make life extremely difficult is just one example of how such cognitive dissonance makes logical projections of “what to do next” susceptible to confusion and uncertainty. As a result, I’m concentrating on staying practical in the present and being close to nature.

It will give you a good idea of the valuable information only supporting members have access to. 

    2. How to sign up as a new Job One for Humanity member is described further down this page. We are a IRS approved nonprofit organization.

    Here Are the Many Member Benefits and Services You Will Receive for a $9.00 a Year Donation 

    You will get all of the member benefits listed below when you become an annual member/donor now for just $9.00 per year! With any $9 donation, you will also receive five important ebooks with a $42.00 value! 

    Here is a list of the available five climate-related ebooks:

    "In Our Hands" by Wilford H Welch is a $9.99 ebook. In Our Hands is the result of extensive research into climate science and the use of systems thinking and driving forces analysis. Using these methods, Wilford makes sense of the climate crisis and what we all need to do to address it. He lays out two futures, one looking back from 2050 and the actions we took to save ourselves; the other, entitled "The Road to Ruin," shows how the world collapsed into chaos by mid-century due to our failure to take effective actions. Here are some reviews of just updated great book on Amazon.

    "Climageddon" the Climate Change and Global Warming Survival Kit" by Lawrence Wollersheim is an $8.95 value. The Climageddon book will show you the scientific evidence on how bad global warming really is, how bad it will get, and how soon the worst of the now unavoidable consequences of global warming will destabilize you, your family, business, or nation. Climageddon describes the 20 worst global warming consequences. It also lays out the 11 most critical global warming tipping points. These tipping points are striking terror in the minds and hearts of everyone involved in short-term, mid-range, and long-range essential planning. Understanding the 11 global warming tipping points is critical because crossing a few more of them, left unchecked, will initiate the end of humanity and civilization over the next several decades. The systemic analysis found within Climageddon also shows you how to stay ahead of the coming global warming-related financial market unpredictability and drops. These will occur naturally because of the escalating consequences of continually rising temperatures on food crops, related businesses, and global political stability. Climageddon has scores of great reviews on Amazon. You can download it in one of the three most popular ebook reader formats. 

    "On Vestige Way" For those who do not like reading complex climate change scientific research and still want to be entertained and educated, we have 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 Millennials, Generation Z, and corporations. It also describes a massive rearrangement of the political alliances we take for granted. It is so hard to put down that you will be missing work and sleep wondering what happens next to the story's heroes and heroines struggling with the genuine global heating future the younger generations will face. Yet, it is one of the most scientifically accurate CLI-FI books on the market. You can read the Amazon reviews on this book here.

    "Climate and Ecological Delusions and Contradictions that Will Soon End Humanity" by Michael Mielke. This $8.95 value ebook explains and elaborates in great detail on the carbon capture technology delusion and the many other global crises we face, such as resource Overshoot—a necessary read and update on new technology delusions that will not save us in time.

    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 climate change-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. (PDF format only.)

    And, there are also other important member additional gifts included:

    1. You also will get members-only access to nonpublic climate and global heating website information as described below:

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

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

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

    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.,

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

    3. first alerts and early warnings about the coming global warming catastrophes,

    4. exclusive global warming emergency preparation and adaptation information for your family, home, and business.

    5. well-researched global warming family and business migration options for the sparse global warming safer zones (For those of you who live in global warming high-risk areas.)

    The members-only area of our website 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. 

    6. You will also receive one year of online email support to help you prepare for the worsening global heating consequences. This online support will help you get through all parts of the Job One for Humanity Global Heating Resilience Plan. This global heating plan will help you reduce your fossil fuel use, become more sustainable, and keep you motivated and demanding your government acts before it is too late!

    You also will be able to ask global heating plan questions and share your successes, knowledge, and experiences via this new online support system.

  • commented on New UN Climate Report Dire, But Still Hiding Much From the Public 2021-08-12 05:59:12 -0700
    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.

  • commented on Your 2020 Global Warming Predictions 2019-12-30 07:50:14 -0800
    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.

  • commented on Climate Change Emergency Preparations 2019-07-26 13:58:13 -0700
    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?

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

    More Members-Only Benefits

    As a member, you will gain access to members-only information. For example, you will know what the ultra-wealthy know about our global warming future and what they don't know (unless, of course, they are also members at Job One.) Our nonprofit organization has spent almost $100,000 acquiring and researching the information found in the members-only section.

    Hedge funds, investment bankers, real estate conglomerates, and ultra-wealthy individuals and corporations worldwide are spending thousands of dollars each year with global warming risk analysis companies to access the information you will find in our members-only section. As a result, trillions in personal and corporate wealth will either be made or lost because one understands or does not understand the many consequences of our rapidly accelerating global warming emergency.

    As a member, you will have full access to nonpublic global warming website information as described below:

    1. critical prediction information on how, when, and where the escalating global warming emergency will affect:
      • local, regional, and national real estate values and finances,
      • stock market values, specifically corporations whose stocks and bonds will be most affected as the global warming emergency worsens,
      • 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.,

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

    3. first alerts and early warnings about the coming global warming catastrophes,

    4. exclusive global warming emergency preparation and adaptation information for your family, home, and business. 

    5. well-researched global warming family and business migration options for the sparse global warming safer zones (For those of you who live in global warming high-risk areas.)

    The members-only area of our website 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. 

    And finally, in addition to the above, your donations provide critical financial support for our nonprofit organization's ongoing research, goals, and mission

  • 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?

  • commented on Signup Landing Page 2018-12-30 14:06:44 -0800
    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.
