Here are the Ten Critical Climate Change and Global heating Facts Expanded with Documentation and Analysis
The first five climate facts below are what we need to know. The next three are what we need to do. And the tenth fact is why we are continuing to fail to resolve the climate change and global heating emergency. The following expanded ten most critical climate facts are also meant to correct the grossly underestimated and highly politicized climate change and global heating summary reports regularly released by the IPCC.
Fact 1: Beginning about 2025-2031, the severity, frequency, and scale of climate change and global heating consequences will rise exponentially.
This means the climate consequences of heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, hurricanes, flooding, Derechos, rain bombs, extreme wind, dust, wildfire smoke storms, and unseasonable cold spells will become far more severe, occur much more frequently, and cover larger and larger areas.
For a detailed explanation of why climate change and human-caused global heating will go exponential over the next 3 to 9 years, from 2025 through 2031, please click here.
Here are the detailed 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets explained. We must get close to them to prevent mass extinction. Please keep in mind that if we fail to come close to these 2025 targets, it will take centuries to millennia for the planet to recover.
If you have any doubts about what the stacking of amplifying climate feedback loops means or what climate tipping points are, or why they will help cause an exponential rise in climate consequeces, or their importance to your future, a new video has come out called Earth Emergency. It takes you through the most dangerous climate feedbacks and tipping points in an easy-to-understand way. This public broadcasting (PBS) video also makes many of the key points that we are making on this website. Click here to see this "don't miss it" super simple video.
Our increase in climate consequence severity, frequency, and scale is also because we have already crossed into the beginning stages of runaway global heating. If you imagined runaway global heating like a train without brakes rolling down a mountain that is getting steeper and steeper, you would have a good idea about the seriousness of our climate consequences soon rising exponentially.
(When reviewing the illustration discriptions below, start at the bottom right, then go up the consequences.)
Because climate change and global heating consequences will soon begin rising exponentially, you may have only another 3-9 more years of relative global heating stability, depending upon where you live. (Beginning around 2025, if you are in a high-risk global heating area, the global warming consequences that you are already experiencing will start to become far worse than you are experiencing currently.)
Fact 2: The correct global fossil fuel reduction targets require the national governments in ALL developed countries, including China and India, to compel their citizens to reduce all their personal and business fossil fuel use by about 75% by 2025.
(Undeveloped countries have considerably lower 2025 targets due to climate justice factors.)

We have squandered four valuable decades when we could have gradually and easily reduced our global fossil fuel use to avoid the current global heating catastrophe. Instead, our governments have ignored more than 40 years of global warming warnings by our best climate scientists. Because we squandered those four decades, to save ourselves from the extinction of half of humanity by mid-century, global fossil fuel reductions today will have to be radical, painful, and immediate to make up for many decades of lost time.
Click here to see our 28 significant challenges to getting close to the 2025 global fossil fuel targets or for any other major global fossil fuel reduction targets.
Fact 3: Missing the required 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets significantly means we will go over the first of four extinction-accelerating climate change and global heating tipping points. Additionally, missing the 2025 targets will trigger many amplifying climate feedback loops.
If we do not get close to the 2025 targets, we lose our last chance to reverse the climate damage we have done for centuries to thousands of years.

Fact 4: Our global society has not taken fixing global heating seriously for over many decades. The many amplifying climate feedbacks and crossed tipping point consequences of this delay and failure to act will cause the unavoidable deaths of about half of humanity by mid-century.
Unfortunately, over those many wasted decades, global heating's consequences have worsened so much that it is now too late to prevent the extinction of about half of humanity (about 4-5 billion people) by mid-century. If we are very lucky, we still have about 3-9 years left to get close to the survival-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
The IPCC's grossly underestimated climate consequences and timeframes have denied the public realizing the appropriate and proper urgency and seriousness of the global heating emergency. Denied this critical understanding, the public is stillbroadly unaware of the actual climate dangers and timeframes essential to demand that its governments immediately fix this accelerating emergency.
During that time, global heating's consequences have worsened so much that, unfortunately, it is now too late to prevent the extinction of about half of humanity (about 4-5 billion people) by mid-century.
If we are very lucky, we still have about 3-9 years left to get close to the survival-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and slow down and delay the exrtinction process.

It describes the physics and mathematics behind how at this late stage of global heating and inaction, about half of humanity will unavoidably die if we make the critical and correct fossil fuel reductions now needed to save the other half of humanity.

Read the chart below from the bottom up. This will help you visualize what happens when we do not get close to the 2025 targets.
Why "all is not hopeless" and while a global heating consequence-driven near-total extinction is probable, a total extinction is not realistic
Understanding the bitter differences between a global heating consequence-driven mass human extinction, a near-total extinction, and a total extinction event is essential. This section will make those differences clear and restore rational, balanced, and scientifically appropriate climate hope.
A global heating consequence-driven mass human extinction is already here and unavoidable. It is inevitable because of our 60 years of climate inaction and denial. We have been grossly ineffective in slowing and reversing global heating for so long that about half of the human population will die by mid-century.
A global heating consequence-driven total human extinction will occur if we allow carbon levels in the atmosphere to rise to the levels of 800 to 1700 parts per million (ppm). We risk our atmosphere being pulled out into space and everything that depends upon oxygen suffocating and going entirely extinct at those carbon ppm levels.
But, long before we reach those extreme atmospheric carbon ppm levels, Mother Nature will step in with her very tough medicine. This painful intervention will result in near-total extinction, but not total extinction. Mother Nature's tough medicine will be in the form of the many primary and secondary consequences of global heating (described in detail on this page) escalating in severity, frequency, and scale as global heating rises.
At this point, you may be wondering how Mother Nature will "allow" a near-total human extinction event while preventing us from going totally extinct? It is a twist of dialectical evolutionary fate and great news for everyone who has worried that there is no climate hope left for the future of humanity and our civilization.
Here is how and why near-total extinction is by far our most probable fate (unless we successfully get close to the radical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets wheere even this fate would be greatly lessened.)
- Directly or indirectly, Mother Nature is already killing off tens of millions of us using the existing climate change and global heating-related consequences.
- In perfect lockstep with our rising global heating, Mother Nature will continue using ever-intensifying consequences in lockstep with our increasing global heating to continue to kill off hundreds of millions and then billions of us. This massive kill-off will continue unabated until so few of us are left that humanity is simply no longer capable of raising or maintaining global temperatures by burning as much fossil fuel.
- The critical point at which Mother Nature will stop killing us off is the point where she has killed just enough of us so that global fossil fuel use has gone down to the point that additional greenhouse gases are no longer being added into the atmosphere, they are at such low levels that global heating stops rising, and they are going down.
- Unless our governments mass mobilize and come close to the 2025 targets, the critical point where Mother Nature will effectively manage rising the leading greenhouse gases of carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide will likely be well into the second half of the 21st century.
- If anything, Mother Nature will likely keep killing us off with more and more intense consequences considerably beyond what she actually needs to stop the mass global burning of fossil fuels by the remaining population.
Thanks to the compensating actions of Mother Nature, global heating will eventually level off, and there can be a realistic, balanced and appropriate hope humanity will go on. But, unfortunately, only after enough of us die, and we are no longer capable of burning anywhere near the current amounts of fossil fuels that we are burning now. Nature's fossil fuel use "kill switch" will ensure humanity in its entirety will never go completely extinct because of the above compensating natural consequences.
Unfortunately, the bad news is that whoever survives will face centuries to thousands of years of suffering before Mother Nature can fully rebalance and get atmospheric carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide down to where our global temperature goes back to a level better suited for optimal human existence and reproduction.
Mother Nature saving humanity from itself as a fail-safe is truly great news. The bad news is how little of humanity she will likely save. If we fail to radically reduce current global fossil fuel use to get close to the 2025 global targets, we will be lucky to have 1% to 5% of humanity still living in 2080 to 2100.
This very high die-off is because global heating will keep rising for decades even after Mother Nature has killed off enough of us to completely stop us from adding any more carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide levels to our atmosphere. (The reason global heating will continue to rise for decades after we stop burning fossil fuel levels is because of pre-existing global heating momentum within the climate system.)
As you can see, all is not hopeless, and a global heating consequence-driven total extinction is not likely.
Some people who have missed this global heating-driven near-total extinction protection by a natural Earth compensatory process are promoting the inevitable total extinction from climate change. Some of these individuals have gone as far as to predict all of humanity will be completely extinct within ten years of 2020.
Climate research science does not support these wild predictions of a climate-driven total human extinction in 10, 20, 30, or even 40 years. Moreover, these wild climate-driven predictions of total human extinction are additionally invalid because of the ongoing and continual compensating consequence reactions of Mother Nature to rising greenhouse gases in our atmosphere described above.
We have so little time left to manage and slow runaway global heating. So please do not buy into the "doomer" movement "all is already lost" time and consequence distortions of current climate science.
We have time left to act but we need everyone rowing in the same direction at full strength to minimize human extinction losses.
Click here to see what we must do to save ourselves and the future.
To see the time we have left, go to number nine below.
The three "what we need to do" facts
FACT 6: To save most of humanity from extinction before it's impossible, we must execute history's largest government-enforced mass mobilization of resources. At this 11th hour, only mass mobilization will ensure we get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. If our governments fail to get us close to the 2025 targets, our focus must shift to minimizing fatalities for as long as possible.
Our governments must enact an immediate mass mobilization to slow down mass extinction and prevent near-total extinction.
Here is what we will likely have to do to get our governments to finally act.
Fact 7: The belief that some miracle "new technology" (like carbon capture) will somehow appear soon or just before the last possible moment to save us is not valid.
Click here for spellbinding details about why the carbon capture technology will not happen or be "too little too late" to save us. It is a perfect example of the bountiful, wishful, and mechanistic "new technology" thinking surrounding and obscuring the actual scope, scale, and difficulty of the runaway global heating extinction emergency.
Additionally, these promised miracle "new technologies" are false solutions that steal an absolute and real urgency away from the climate emergency, and they also suffer from one or more of the following deadly problems:
1. None of the current miracle "new technology" climate solutions can come even close to globally scaling up in time (over the next three years) to compensate for our significantly missing the 2025 global targets.
2. Most have not yet been proven to work (even at a small scale.)
3. They have not been adequately tested at a sufficiently large enough scale for unintended side effects. Any unknown and unintended side effects could create even greater problems than the problems they were designed to solve.
4. They are prohibitively costly.
5. They burn so much fossil fuel trying to remove atmospheric carbon or geo-engineer the planet or atmosphere that their massive fossil fule use eliminates their benefits. And finally,
These miracle "new technologies" are falsely promising us that we can continue our lives of over-consuming, polluting, and burning fossil fuels as we are now. Nothing could be further from the truth.
We are cautionary and warn people about the pitfalls of techno-optimism and the engineer's limited and mechanistic view of complex adaptive systems (the climate, biological and social systems, etc.). But, it does not mean we are anti-technology.
Our position on the use of technology is best described by the term Appropriate Technology. Appropriate technology is a movement encompassing technological choice and application that is small-scale, affordable by locals, decentralized, labor-intensive, energy-efficient, environmentally sustainable, and locally autonomous. Unfortunately, the miracle "new technology" solutions proposed for climate change are far from the best appropriate technology principles.
Fact 8: We are currently so far behind in getting close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and we have so many other major global crises that wise individuals and businesses have already started their emergency Plan B survival preparation and adaptation plans.
In addition to our accelerating global heating emergency, we have also failed miserably to manage most of these other 11 critical global challenges to our severe detriment. The amplifying, accelerating, and interacting of these 12 major global crises with each other will soon begin causing a widespread accelerated or abrupt collapse of the critical food production, economic, ecological, and social systems first in weaker nations, but eventually even in the strongest.
Below, you see an illustration of the decades-long complete and utter failure of the IPCC and our governments in doing anything effective to reduce global fossil fuel-related greenhouse gases, which have caused our accelerating global heating. The graph below shows the three most dangerous greenhouse gasses in atmospheric parts per billion (ppb).
Now is the time for wise individuals and businesses to create their own Plan B emergency backup survival plans. Plan B is simply an emergency preparation, adaptation, and survival plan. It might even include migration or relocation to safer areas away from the worst of accelerating global heating and the worsening 11 other major global threats.
It is no longer reasonable to rely solely upon our limited-resourced governments to save you, your family, or your business from the rapidly accelerating global heating extinction emergency interacting with our 11 other major global crises.
With your Plan B firmly in place, you can keep working to help slow down global heating and achieve the best possible outcomesafter you have prepared your family and business for its worst possible outcomes. And, if we eventually do manage to get through this extinction emergency, you will have preserved your future opportunity to create a better life from the painful lessons you (and all of us) will be learning.
Click here to see the Job One for Humanity Plan B. Plan B also includes saving and salvaging as much of our global civilization as possible so that it will be there for us in any post-collapse future.)
(Click here to see the many "best possible" remaining positive outcomes if our governments mass mobilize and act in time.)
Even if our governments fail to act and we fail to get even close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, most of us still have about 3-9 more years of relative climate stability, particularly within the global heating safer areas. But, if you have prepared well for the coming global heating emergency and live in one of the safer global heating regions, you still could be lucky and live another 30 to 50 years or more. If you have a good Plan B, you will have time to put your lives in order, enjoy life, and make life as meaningful as possible.
Fact 9: Fact 10: Our ability to work together to fix climate change and global heating before we experience masive global catastrophe is far from guaranteed.
Therefore, every individual and business needs to know the most accurate timeframes for the coming climate change and global heating consequences.
Understanding climate consequence timeframes will allow you adequate time to create the best possible climate outcomes while simultaneously preparing for the worst possible climate outcomes.
Keep in mind that this timetable significantly depends on your current location's safety and global heating risk level. If you are in a higher-risk area, the timeframes are shorter.
Keep that in mind while you are preparing and adapting. Keep pushing our governments to reduce global fossil fuel use so that some of humanity will be able to survive mass, near-total extinction even though the odds are poor.
The higher global heating risk areas generally will be between the 45th parallel north and the 45th parallel south. The highest risks will be between the 30th parallel north and the 30th parallel south.
Most global heating-related deaths will occur within the poor and undeveloped countries between the 40th parallel north and the 4Oth parallel south. In the image below, the red line marks the 40th parallel north. The yellow line marks the 40th parallel south.
Here are the critical survival and safer location-relevant deadlines and timeframes to know for your personal and business survival:
a. The next few years' deadlines: (From now until the end of 2025.) At this time, it is appropriate to admit it is all but impossible for us to meet the total 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets fully. But we still do have enough time left to slow down and delay (but not avoid) a mid-century extinction event for about half of humanity. We do this by getting close to the 2025 targets. Thus, although we have passed the point of preventing the die-off of about half of humanity, we still can maintain some level of control of our global warming future. And most importantly, we can still prevent near-total to total human extinction by also getting very close to the 2025 targets.
This imminent extinction danger means we have to educate the world about the four extinction-accelerating global warming tipping point deadlines. We also need to prepare survival provisions and create safe and sustainable community cooperatives or sanctuaries. (See this Plan B emergency plan page. Plan B discusses how to prepare for what is coming in the safest locations and describes the least safe places to ride out this emergency.)
b. The 5-10-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and did not get close to them.) From 2025 to about 2030, global heating consequences will steadily worsen in a rising but considerably steeper, nearly exponential progression. More people will wisely migrate to safer areas. Millions more in high-risk climate areas will die because of climate-related food shortages and other global heating-related catastrophes.
If you have prepared, adapted, and, if applicable, are in a global heating safer location before 2025 to as late as 2030, and you have a good Plan B in place, depending upon your location, relative stability and security for your family and business are probable until about 2030 to maybe as long as 2040. (See this Plan B emergency plan page, which discusses how to prepare in the safest locations and what are the least safe places to ride out the runaway global heating extinction emergency.)
c. The 10-15 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and did not get close to the 2025 targets.) After 2030-2035 many other climate, human, ecological, political, and economic tipping points will be crossed due to accelerating climate change consequences and global heating amplifying the consequences of most of these 11 other critical global challenges.
The stability and security of even the safest and best prepared global heating safer locations will lessen, and it will become increasingly challenging to survive. Those individuals in supportive cooperatives or sustainable communities should be significantly safer and better adapted than those who are not. (See this Plan B emergency plan page, which discusses how to prepare in the safest locations and what are the least safe places to ride out the cimate change extinction emergency.)
d. The 15-25 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and we did not get even close to meeting these targets.) Beginning around 2035-2045, the frequency, severity, and size of the 20 worst global warming consequences will continue rising in an exponential progression. As a result, stability and security for even the safer, best prepared global warming locations, cooperatives, and sustainable communities will become far more complex and dangerous. (See this Plan B emergency plan page, which discusses how to prepare in the safest locations and what are the least safe places to ride out the runaway global heating extinction emergency.)
e. The 25-30-year deadline:(This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and at least we got close to them somewhere over this period.) By mid-century, extinction for half of humanity will still be unavoidable. From about 2040 to 2050 will be the riskiest period to survive for most of humanity. Generally, things will be better in safer global warming locations, special cooperatives, and sustainable communities. But even there, survival is far from guaranteed without the highest preparation, adaptation, and cooperation levels. (See this Plan B emergency plan page, which discusses how to prepare in the safest locations and what are the least safe places to ride out the runaway global heating extinction emergency.)
f. The 50-year plus deadline:(This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and unfortunately, we did not even get close to them.) In this case, we will face the worst consequences of runaway global warming. We will be heading toward the beginning of the runaway greenhouse gas effect, which ripped the atmosphere off Venus. Because of the runaway global warming reality and not getting close to the 2025 reduction targets, humanity will, unfortunately, face a near-total extinction event beginning as soon as 2070-2080 or sooner. We call this the Climageddon Scenario.
Now that you know the critical timeframes, it is time to work toward the best possible climate outcomes while still preparing for the worst possible climate outcomes. Wise individuals or businesses will work for the best and prepare for the worst:
a. by making the necessary personal and business 75% fossil fuel use reductions to do their part to get us close to the 2025 global targets. (Part two of the Job One Plan will help you do this.)
b. by demanding their national politicians enforce the reduction of global fossil fuel use to get us close to the 2025 targets. (This action step is mainly for individuals who can directly influence their national politicians. (See Part three of the Job One Plan to see what our governments must do.)
c. by making the necessary emergency preparations and adaptations to build their climate change resilience. This resilience will be essential to manage the worst of the coming climate consequences successfully. (If you are fortunate, well prepared, and in a safer global heating region, you could survive 30-50 more years. (Part one of the Job One Plan will help you do this.)
d. by making new climate change decisions concerning what they want to do about the accelerating climate consequences. This might include re-planing their lives or re-adjusting their priorities to focus on the meaningful and important things they may have delayed or failed to do.
Fact 10: For decades, our climate change and global heating emergency has been made far more difficult to resolve because of the ongoing underestimation, politicization, and distortion of climate science by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the IPCC of the United Nations.)
In addition to what was said on the shorter version of this fact that you recently have read, the IPCC's grossly underestimated climate consequences and timeframe reports deny the public feeling the appropriate urgency and importance regarding the global heating emergency. Cleverly denied the urgency and importance by the IPCC's underestimation, the public has never known the real climate perils to demand that its governments immediately fix the accelerating global heating emergency.
In the links IPCC problem related links below, you will learn precisely how the IPCC constructs and calculates its climate consequence risk scenarios, timetables, and recommended climate change remedies. Unfortunately, you will also discover many troubling climate change calculation reporting issues and administrative problems within the IPCC.
The documentation links below further seriously question the reliability and risk analysis usefulness for any of the IPCC's current summary consequence prediction scenarios, timeframes, and climate remedies.
Click here to see precisely how the IPCC "cooked the books" and grossly skewed current IPCC global fossil fuel reduction calculations to be far lower than they should be. (They did this by including the unproven and non-existent "carbon sucking unicorn" technology in their projections.) Unfortunately, this distortion of global carbon reduction calculations allowed the major fossil fuel producing nations and fossil-fuel industries to continue to do "business as usual."

This page will take you through the process for the creation of IPCC climate reports and it is rather shocking how the climae science gets distorted by the IPPC administrators in their final approval process.
Click here to see a new study showing that the IPCC does not include many critical climate system factors in its computer climate modeling. Those missing factors equal wrong and distorted results. This Feb 2022 paper strongly refutes the absurd IPCC claim that the Arctic sea ice melt-decline is reversible. It is not reversible, and that is a monster problem for humanity's weather, seasonal climate, and future.
Because our governments rely upon the IPCC information, our governments will continue to grossly underestimate (or hide) the real and accelerating consequences and timeframes of global heating.
All of the above linked IPCC errors and politicization problems mean that the IPCC is an unreliable partner for truthful and accurate global heating information. As another profound underestimation error example, in addition to those in the above links, the IPCC regularly asserts global heating can still be limited to 1.5C. Yet, according to James Hansen, one of the world's most respected climate scientists, 1.5C will hit us by 2030.
The climate consequence predictions, timeframes, and remedial action information of the IPCC should no longer be trusted. As a good general operating principle, whenever you hear an IPCC administrator politicized summary statement on a climate consequence, treat it as 20-40% worse than they are saying and arriving 20- 40% sooner than they are saying. (See the expanded fact section for the many reasons this is appropriate.)

Some individuals experience upsetting emotions as they become aware of the reality and the dangers of our current runaway global heating extinction emergency. Unfortunately, this upset is quite normal.

About the Climate Research and Analysis at Job One For Humanity
At Job One for Humanity, our volunteer climate analysts and researchers provide a "big picture" holistic view of the inter-connected and inter-dependent climate systems creating our current global heating emergency. Using the principles of system theory and dialectical metasystemic thinking applied to the climate as a complex adaptive system, we analyze recent climate change research for errors, omissions, and unrecognized patterns which could affect current climate consequences, timeframes, or recommended remedies. We intensely analyze the climate's multiple related systems and subsystems.
Unlike many other climate change think tanks, we do provide prioritized, critical-path, and deadline-driven solutions to the climate change emergency. These solutions are based on accurate global fossil fuel reduction targets and the most dangerous climate change tipping point deadlines we currently face.
Job One for Humanity actively exposes the current intense politicization of climate science. This intense politicization of climate science by the media, our governments, and the UN's IPCC act to forward a gross underestimation of our actual climate consequences, timeframes, remedies, and emergency. Unexpectedly, our independent climate analysis has also turned us into reluctant whistleblowers exposing how most of today's public climate data has been distorted to serve the hidden financial interests of those who gain most from the ongoing global use of fossil fuels.
