Gilles Fecteau commented on The Manhattan Institute's Joke of a Wall Street Journal Op-Ed... 2018-03-18 09:44:03 -0700So all you need to do is install air conditioning in all barns and farmer fields that grow our food.
Gilles Fecteau commented on Global Warming Is Now Irreversible... 2018-03-16 11:38:46 -0700Whenever a meteorologist denies global warming, we are quick to point out that the person is not a climate scientist. By the same reasoning, Stephen Hawking was not a climate scientist. I find using his quote the day after his death irresponsible.
Stating that the earth will become as hot as Venus is not helping. From the past, we know that “in our geologic past once our the average global temperature increased by 5° Celsius, the oceans warmed enough to release methane from the methane clathrate crystals found on most of the coastal ocean shelves around the world. When this methane was suddenly released, temperatures skyrocketed, resulting in a true global extinction event.”
i believe we urgently need to stop emitting GHG. But we will also need geoengineering to minimize the global extinction event that’s already underway.
Gilles Fecteau commented on Correcting the underestimation in the current IPCC future average global temperature projections... 2018-03-12 06:20:21 -0700It would be useful to explain why an adjustment to the IPCC estimates is necessary. My experience, watching the IPCC reports is that the climate situation at the beginning of every one (except the first) is worst than the worst case scenario predicted by the previous report. Therefore, some adjustment is necessary.
Gilles Fecteau commented on NO COUNTRY ON EARTH IS TAKING THE 2 DEGREE CLIMATE TARGET SERIOUSLY... 2018-01-06 16:28:04 -0800“Source of the” should read “source of GHG”
Gilles Fecteau commented on CLIMATE CHANGE WILL DISPLACE MILLIONS IN COMING DECADES. NATIONS SHOULD PREPARE NOW TO HELP THEM... 2017-12-22 04:45:04 -0800I fear the rich nations will continue denying they cause global warming and ignore the plead of the affected people.
Gilles Fecteau commented on WORLD HAS THREE YEARS LEFT TO STOP DANGEROUS CLIMATE CHANGE, WARN EXPERTS... 2017-06-29 12:23:30 -0700I fully agree with this article. Unfortunately, the people that will suffer the most from extreme heat are from poor countries where AC is not an option.
Gilles Fecteau commented on ARCTIC SEA ICE MELT, DRIVEN BY GLOBAL WARMING, ACCELERATED BY NATURE... 2017-03-16 08:26:47 -0700The main justification for the extra ‘natural’ ice melt appears to be warm air flow to the north. But is that not due to Jetstream changes caused by a lower temperature delta between the poles and the tropic? How much of that is due to increase in ghg?
Positive feedback due to our emissions should not be counted as some natural variation.
Gilles Fecteau commented on THE WINTER OF BLAZING DISCONTENT CONTINUES IN THE ARCTIC... 2017-02-08 05:50:47 -0800The race is on. Who will last longer? Summer’s ice at the north Pole or Trump as president?

Job One for Humanity has a critical mission and effective plan to survive and even thrive through the current global warming emergency while we fix it. We run one of the most cost-effective operations among all nonprofit environmental groups.
When you donate you also automatically become a member for one year. All member/donors get access to well researched and exclusive information on global warming, global warming migration options to the very limited safer global warming zones, and they will also get exclusive global warming emergency preparation information.
All donors will also soon have access to additional information on how, when and where the escalating global warming emergency will dramatically affect:
1. local and regional real estate values,
2. stock market values, specifically corporations whose stocks and bonds will be most affected as the global warming emergency worsens,
3. 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,
4. increased conflict or instability probabilities relating to a nation's regionalized specific global warming consequences.
As a tax deductible nonprofit organization we can’t do our job of educating more people about what they can do about the global warming emergency without donations from concerned individuals, businesses and activists like you! Your tax-deductible donation will help us to:
change more minds,
involve more people,
- slow and lessen the catastrophic global warming consequences the are coming, and
help build a more ecologically sustainable world for everyone, which will ultimately help ensure we and our children will survive and thrive as a species.

Gilles Fecteau commented on CANARIES IN A COAL MINE: BLACK COMMUNITIES COULD SUFFER UNDER TRUMP’S ENERGY AND CLIMATE POLICIES... 2016-12-19 06:17:03 -0800I am afraid that under Trump, the US will lose its technological leadership toward the next industrial revolution, that of clean energy and sustainable development.
Gilles Fecteau commented on TRUMP SAYS ‘NOBODY REALLY KNOWS’ IF CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL... 2016-12-13 03:49:39 -0800The Swedish scientist, Svante Arrhenius, calculated that cutting CO2 in half would suffice to produce an ice age. He further calculated that a doubling of atmospheric CO2 would give a total warming of 5-6 degrees Celsius. The year was 1896.

Gilles Fecteau posted about Declare a Global Warming State of Emergency on Facebook 2017-01-23 04:11:34 -0800Please sign the petition: Declare a Global State of Emergency!
We, the citizens of our nation and of our Earth, are endowed with certain rights, powers, and obligations, which demand we act both individually and collectively to protect and preserve the ongoing evolution of life on Earth, including our future generations.
Based upon a preponderance of scientific evidence we recognize our global climate is rapidly warming and becoming increasingly unstable due to human-caused carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels. We also recognize that in spite of 35 years of credible warnings, global warming is still rising!
We the citizens of this nation and of the world have seen global warming-aggravated weather, like the record-breaking hurricanes and wildfires. We have already witnessed the "worst in centuries" droughts, floods and dust storms. We have experienced more and more alternating super cold then super warm winters, extreme storms, bomb cyclones or, rain bombs where weeks or months worth of rain falls in a few hours or a few days.
We see with our own eyes that something very bad and abnormal is happening to the previous normal stability of our seasons and that, all of these global warming-related consequences are becoming more frequent, severe and are covering larger and larger areas!
If we do not immediately change our global fossil fuel burning behaviors before more critical global warming tipping points are crossed, this destabilization of our climate will continue causing ever-increasing suffering, crop failures and unthinkable starvation and devastation within our lifetimes.
Furthermore, if we do not hit the required must hit fossil fuel reduction targets of 75% in all developed countries by 2025 (as described fully here), it will eventually precipitate the extinction of as much as 70-90% of humanity as well as the extinction of much of our other life supporting biological life in as little as the next 30-50 years.
If we do not make the now-critical required 2025 global fossil fuel reductions and we go over the climate cliff, we further recognize that because of numerous climatic and human factors, for all intents and purposes global warming will become out of our meaningful control for as much as the next 30-50 years.
The now unavoidable global warming consequences which will be occurring over the next 30-50 year time period, have become the single greatest disruptor and threat multiplier, accelerator and amplifier of the security risks of all nations, comparable over time in total impact only to the impact of immediate global nuclear war.
We now face a world in which escalating average global temperature rises will lead to mass starvation and then the destabilization of normal social, economic and political life. This reality is already affecting millions and soon billions.
No one is ultimately safe. People all over the world will be forced to deal with ever-escalating climate catastrophes, major food and other resource depletion, as well as desperate mass migrations. (If necessary, see this page for additional proof the statements of this paragraph are true.)
As average global temperatures continue to rise, all of the world's greatest ecological, economic and political problems (listed below) will cross-react with each other as well as with the 11 key global warming tipping points increasing the frequency, severity, and scale (size) of the following other global crises as well.
- Food and resource depletion (Overshoot.)
- Severe droughts, floods, and wildfires
- Rising sea levels
- Water pollution and water table loss
- Desertification and deforestation
- Ocean fish stock depletion (Overshoot.)
- Growing economic inequity, poverty, and instability
- Political instability and injustice
- War and regional conflicts
- Increasing potential of pandemics and other eco-health crises
Because the above crisis are already cross-reacting with know global warming consequences they will continue to worsen faster and become even more disruptive due to global warming's threat multiplying, accelerating and amplifying qualities.
Despite 35 years of education, study, and discussion about the near-certain extinction level effects of human-caused carbon and methane pollution of our atmosphere, global warming temperatures have escalated to levels that have already passed some serious tipping points and moving ever-closer to passing near-extinction and extinction level global warming tipping points. In fact, many of global warming worse consequences have already become irreversible for centuries to thousands of years.
In order to honestly manage our global warming emergency, we must immediately stop the continued rise of average global temperature. This can only be done by radically and immediately reducing the human-caused production of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels. (Click here to see the challenging 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets we now must hit.)
As global citizens of every nation on Earth, we ask you, our national leaders to:
formally declare a national and international global warming State of Emergency.
And then at this same emergency meeting of world leaders:
a. pass enforceable and verifiable laws that would immediately and radically reduce global fossil fuel usage to the required 2025 levels to save humanity, and
b. call for the immediate allocation of all necessary resources, personnel, and actions (like those described in Part 3 of the Job One for Humanity Plan,) to quickly resolve this global warming State of Emergency in order to sustainably protect, preserve, and advance the continued evolution of all humanity and life on Earth and to protect humanity and our civilization from extinction.
By signing this petition now (in the box below,) I am personally notifying my national politicians of my demand for their immediate meeting and their immediate action on the contents of this emergency petition.
I as an individual further pledge to act together and cooperatively with others as one human family to help resolve this escalating global warming emergency until it is resolved.
Learn more about the story behind this nonprofit organization's mission and why this petition must go worldwide and be presented to politicians all over the world by clicking here.
When you sign the petition you are also giving the Job One for Humanity Organization permission to send you critical global warming emergency progress updates about once a month.2,672 signaturesAdd signature
