We face difficult global warming choice options as we stare down a high probability Great Global Collapse and possible later Great Global Rebirth
Global warming is fueling a Great Global Collapse, but it also could be setting the stage for a Great Global Rebirth.

World's Leading Authority on Climate Change Says We Can No Longer Prevent Climate Change Consequences Only Adapt to Them
Do you know the horrible consequences you will need to adapt to and be aware of to replan your life?

If you have not read the Great Global Collapse page, we strongly recommend doing so before reading this Great Global Rebirth challenges page. Understanding this collapse process will provide a robust and complete overview of the many consequences we must endure before our global warming-influenced lives can get better.
Also, if you have not read about the many benefits and processes of a possible Great Global Rebirth, first, read this page and then be sure to see this page! We know the preceding is a bit of preparatory reading. Still, these are the most read pages on our website.
Unless you can see the probabilities and relationships of the Great Global Collapse consequences to the possibilities of the Great Global Rebirth benefits, the following analysis and recommendations will be far less helpful to you.
Humanity now faces a global warming-fueled, highly probable Great Global Collapse and the possibility of a Great Global Rebirth once we make it through the collapse cycle. But, after the Great Global Collapse occurs, the possibility of a Great Global Rebirth is far from assured.
In fact, for the hearty souls who decide to get prepared to survive the Great Global Collapse, the probability of a high success rate is not encouraging. Therefore, the rest of this document will illuminate the challenges of making it through to the point that a Great Global Rebirth could occur.
Why the possibility for Great Global Rebirth after the Great Global Collapse is not good:
1. We are already facing the extinction of much of humanity by mid-century because of existing global warming consequences that we can no longer avoid! To prevent total extinction, we must come very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. Unfortunately, two dozen reasons on this page will make getting close to the 2025 global targets extremely difficult.
2. Individuals and their communities will have to first survive many severe consequences described in detail in the Great Global Collapse process.
3. Long before the worst global warming-related consequences have run their full course to total extinction, the world's nations will probably initiate a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical World War III. This new global war will likely occur because nations will be desperately fighting over the limited global warming-safer lands and other scarce resources.
4. In the post-collapse period of failed national governments, any survivors will have to deal with the toxic effects of compromised nuclear reactors, chemical weapons, and biological weapons, as well as any "leakage" from their manufacturing, service, and storage facilities. Hundreds of millions will sicken and die as unsecured and unsupervised nuclear reactors go critical and spew toxic radiation worldwide. Millions more will sicken as they die from the releases of insecure biological weapons and toxic industrial chemicals. If too many nuclear reactors go critical and meltdown, the radiation circling the planet will kill off all life within a few years of nuclear winter.
5. Survivors will not only have to deal with a physically toxic environment. They will also have to deal with an emotionally and psychologically poisonous environment. Anyone who survives the Great Great Collapse and die-off will have experienced the greatest collective trauma in human history. The emotional and psychological stresses created by watching everything you loved be destroyed, taken away, or die, will significantly diminish the health and lifespans of most post-collapse survivors.
6. If there are survivors after the Great Global Collapse process, they then will most likely enter a global New Dark Age. But, this will not be like the Dark Age that occurred during the Middle Ages. Instead, it will be far worse. This is because most of the easy-to-access natural resources available during humanity's original Dark Age will already be depleted, and much of the planet will be toxic.
This New Dark Age will likely last for many, many decades, if not more than a century. During this New Dark Age, living conditions for most of the planet will be brutal and most likely overseen by barbaric local warlords or clans. For a community of survivors to endure all of the above over greatly extended periods will be nothing short of miraculous!
7. Even if survivors make it through the post-collapse and the New Dark Age, it will take centuries to thousands of years for our Earth's natural systems to come back into balance. Only then will the climate conditions suitable for more humans to thrive be present once again.
To survive all of the above, at the minimum, survivors will need to be a part of a strong eco-community that can help protect them and produce most of their needs. They will also need a new worldview and set of values (not unlike the unique worldview and values found at www.UniverseSpirit.org) to have deep enough science and spiritual "roots" to survive all they will need to endure.
Hopefully, if this post-collapse and post-New Dark Age is survivable, any surviving clans, tribes, or communities still functioning will have learned the painful lessons of the Great Global Collapse. They will have changed their unsustainable and inequitable behaviors.
They will develop a new worldview and new economic, political, and social systems. This new worldview and its new systems will provide the essential tools and opportunities for a new re-building and reboot of humanity.
Suppose some of humanity does survive through all of the above. In that case, it will genuinely have an opportunity to experience and create a unique renaissance where both humankind and nature come back into a balance. This will allow both to flourish. If this happens, whatever is left of humanity will carry forward and make better humanity's great evolutionary adventure on Earth.
Fasten your seat belts. Strap on your shoulder harnesses and put on your helmets. We are entering the extreme turbulence of the beginning stages of the Great Global Collapse process. What you have experienced with the COVID-19 pandemic is just a tiny beginning of it. The Covid 19 pandemic, all of its global social and economic disruptions, and its mass die-off will be considered "a day at the beach" when it is compared to what is coming.
What are reasonable life choices and planning options to consider with the probability of longer-term survival so challenging?
How do you plan your remaining life when looking at the high probability of increasing hardship, instability, chaos, and death for most, if not all, of humanity? The first thing we recommend to do is to look at what are the global warming-related consequences most probable to occur during the remainder of your life.
The good news here is that, depending on your current location, there is no need to panic! You still have numerous years to get prepared and adapt to what is coming. All you have to do is decide how long you want to live in relative comfort and stability and prepare accordingly.
Step One: Review the six conditional action deadlines below
Assuming you have read the Great Global Collapse and you have also made some notes on its key consequence dates, the following critical survival, and location-relevant deadlines will also help:
a. The 5-year deadline: (From now until the end of 2025.) At this time, it is appropriate to admit it is all but impossible for us to fully meet the total 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets! But, we still do have enough time left to slow down (but not avoid) a mid-century mass extinction event for much of humanity by getting close to them. Thus, although we have passed the point of avoiding the die-off of much of humanity, we still can maintain some level of control of our global warming future. And most importantly, we can still prevent total extinction by getting very close to the 2025 targets!
This total extinction danger also means we have to educate the world about the extinction-evoking global warming tipping point deadlines after preparing our own survival provisions and/or after creating safe and sustainable community cooperatives or sanctuaries.
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 2020 to 2027, global warming consequences will steadily worsen in a rising but steeper linear progression. More people will wisely migrate to safer areas. Millions will die because of climate-related food shortages and other global warming-related catastrophes.
If you have prepared, adapted, and if applicable, are in a global warming safer location before 2027, and you have a good Plan B in place, depending upon your location, relative stability and security for family and business are probable until about 2030 to 2040. (See this Plan B page, which discusses how to prepare in the safest locations and what are the least safe places to ride out the global warming extinction emergency.)
c. The 10-15 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and we 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 global warming consequences and global warming amplifying the consequences of most of these 11 other critical global challenges.
The stability and security of even the safest and best prepared global warming safer locations will lessen and become increasingly challenging. Those individuals in supportive cooperatives or sustainable communities should be significantly safer and better adapted than those who are not.
d. The 15-25 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and we did not get close to meeting these targets.) Beginning around 2030, the frequency, severity, and size of the 20 worst global warming consequences will move from a steeply rising linear progression into an exponential progression. As a result, stability and security for even the best prepared, safer global warming locations, cooperatives, and sustainable communities will become far more complex and dangerous.
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 or compensated for these targets somewhere over this period.) By mid-century, extinction for much of humanity will still be unavoidable. From 2030-2050 will be the riskiest period to survive for much to most of society. 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.
f. The 50-year 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 this escalating runaway global warming reality and not getting close to the 2025 reduction targets, humanity will, unfortunately, finally face a total extinction event beginning as soon as 2070-2100. We call this the Climageddon Scenario.
At this dangerous juncture in the evolution of humanity, it is also wholly appropriate to feel fear because of the many known consequences of accelerating global warming and the worsening of these 11 other global crises. While generalized fear or panic often paralyzes, there are positive evolutionary reasons for fear's emotion. The positive use of fear exists for those rare times when there are REAL threats to your survival. Positive fear mobilizes the observant and wise to act before it is too late!
So, here is some good news. If we at least get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, we can still prevent total human extinction. If we do not, we begin crossing too many additional extinction-triggering tipping points. This happens far too fast to prevent the worst consequences of runaway global warming multiplying the worsening effects of the other 11 major global crises.
To support your choices and timelines, we also provide highly relevant emergency preparation, adaptation, and other location/relocation safety and risk level information. It begins on this page.)
Step 2: Consider your new global warming-informed life plan options
Once you have determined what will happen and when over your expected lifespan, it's then time to decide just how you want to live and have the most stability in that remaining time. Below please find the most common options that people select.
Option 1: In a do-or-die effort, many individuals and groups will decide to pour all of their remaining resources into getting our governments to get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets as the only honest and effective way to save some of humanity. (People who chose this option may also see the many potential global warming survival benefits.)
As more individuals and groups realize they are fighting for their survival, maybe our governments will finally listen to a rising mass global outcry for action. Perhaps our governments will eventually enforce the drastic global fossil fuel reductions needed, and hopefully, it will not be too little too late.
(Our organization honors the courage and sacrifice of individuals who choose this option.)
Option 2: Despite difficult long-term survival odds, (described in the Great Global Rebirth section above) many people still will decide to take a chance and do the necessary preparation and adaptation to survive for as long as possible and, as comfortably as possible The drive to survive at all costs is very powerful in our species.
Individuals who chose to survive as long as possible might relocate to global warming safer lands as needed. They might also form or join a sustainable eco-community that will have their back as things worsen and help them produce what is needed as distribution networks stall or collapse.
People who chose this option also may see the many potential global warming survival benefits. They also may become motivated by the great evolutionary adventure of being one of the new Evolutioneers (individuals or groups who choose to be co-creators) of the Great Global Rebirth no matter how difficult.
While individuals who chose this second option are preparing and adapting, they also might be doing everything they can to get our governments to finally enforce the life-critical 2025 targets to reduce global fossil fuel use.
Option 3: Other individuals have decided to accept the collapse and probable extinction situation (described here) as it is. Their goal is simple. They want to use the remaining time they have that is still relatively stable to live as meaningfully and as enjoyably life as is possible.
They have decided to live within a smaller, more controllable life scale. This is because they believe that the bigger life-scale of global collapse and extinction is entirely out of their control. They may also believe that pushing our governments to radically and immediately reduce global fossil fuel use at this late stage is a waste of their time, energy, and resources.
Instead, they want to use their remaining time and environmental stability to put their affairs in order and start living their remaining dreams or "bucket lists."
In one way or another, individuals who choose this option have decided that now is the perfect time to drop out of the modern "consume and waste" social rat race and tune in to what is truly important with their remaining time! Younger people who have chosen this option also may decide that it is not ethical to have more children. This is because they know what we face and there is a high probability their children will have painful short lives.
Option 4: Many people combine and customize their self-chosen elements from the three strategies above as time and resources permit.
No Blame or Judgement
In such an extreme and challenging situation as we now find ourselves, our organization does not blame or render judgment upon any individuals or groups choosing any of the above options. (We do although have many helpful suggestions and survival recommendations for anyone who chooses option two above both here and in the Members section of our website.)
The "We-Will-Survive no matter what" delusions of ultra-wealthy individuals, corporate executives, politicians, and nations
No wealthy individual, corporation, or nation will be able to use its wealth to escape the escalating instability, chaos, collapse, and coming mass extinction!
From what many of you may have read so far on our website, you can see that we are in a no-win game if we do not get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. Yet, there are always those wealthy and arrogant individuals, corporations, and nations who will believe their vast wealth and power will somehow still insulate and save them from what is coming.
Despite wealthy individuals and corporations already buying land and facilities in safer northern countries, they will not be safe there either. The mass migrations of desperate, aggressive, and armed climagees (climate refugees) and national armies will eventually overrun any safer nation border security measures. These locked-out climagees will angrily take their share of what's left and severely punish anyone who they even remotely believe had any significant part in letting this horrific global warming-related catastrophe occur either by acts of commission or by failing to act (acts of omission.)
Eventually, even the private security companies of the ultra-wealthy individuals and corporations hired to protect their secret compounds in the global warming safer zones will ultimately turn against their affluent bosses. They will realize they live in a new world, where only firepower, brute strength, and military-style training determine an individual's or groups' day-to-day survival, absolute ownership, and safety.
Not unlike Holocaust survivors, climagee survivors will also relentlessly hunt down anyone they believe knew about the extinction emergency and had the influence or resources to address it but did not. Those individuals, corporations, and politicians will most certainly lose all of their financial and political power and resources in the massive globalized backlash of anger and punishment that will be directed toward exclusively at them.
There will be no place on Earth or Swiss bank that will save them and their assets from what will be viewed by the survivors as justifiable punishment for their gross, global warming crimes against the survival of the whole of humanity.
Things will be even worse for wealthy corporations, individuals, or nations who act in ways to profit from the escalating global warming catastrophes, real estate or market crashes, and the coming 20 worst global warming consequences as they are unfolding. When those wealthy individuals, corporate executives, or politicians are identified by enraged climagee survivors, ALL of their wealth will likely be removed or clawed back from their trusts, secret bank accounts, businesses (and even their heirs.) It is also highly likely that such super-responsible individuals, corporate executives, and politicians will be put into hard labor camps for the rest of their lives.
As you can see, there is no actual survival for the ultra-wealthy, big corporations, or wealthy nations if they continue to let this catastrophe unfold.
Additionally, please do not mistake that the Job One for Humanity organization promotes any form of an illegal individual climagee survivor or group vengeance against wealthy corporations, individuals, politicians, or nations in any way whatsoever or at any time! All we are disclosing here is these are the most probable and natural anger reactions by surviving individuals who have suffered unthinkable consequences and the pain of losing everyone and everything they have ever loved because of the greed and omissions of a few.
Our organization promotes and believes only in the peaceful execution of fair and equitable justice by impartial individuals, properly constructed courts, and the rule of law.
As an organization, we hold that what is happening now (allowing global warming to worsen to total extinction levels is ultimately a matter of ignorance. Of course, global warming is complicated to understand in the first place. Still, the chosen ignorance of personal greed or excessive personal comfort being valued over the common well-being of society as a whole makes solving this life and death challenge even worse.
We only mention these undesirable outcomes for those ultra-wealthy individuals, corporations, and politicians who act to make matters worse or fail to act. We do it in the hope that through this educational warning, those wealthy individuals, corporations, politicians, and nations will wake up to the fact that this emergency is the ultimate no-win game, even for them.
At some point, we hope that even the world's wealthiest individuals, corporations, and nations will recognize their money and power won't save them from this monster. They will realize that we either work together, or we die together.
We only hope the ultra-wealthy do not discover this truth before it is too late to do anything about it.

The not-for-profit Job One for Humanity organization provides a unique "big picture" and holistic view of the many inter-connected and inter-dependent climate systems creating our current global warming emergency. Unlike other climate change educational organizations, we do provide prioritized, critical-path solutions to the global warming emergency built upon the most accurate global fossil fuel reduction targets and the most dangerous global warming tipping point deadlines we currently face.
Our website focuses on educating individuals and businesses on adapting to what we can no longer avoid! It will help you and your business survive and thrive through the many soon-arriving climate change crises.
Our website illuminates the "big picture" physics and math-determined interactions of the climate's many complex systems in easy-to-understand illustrations, descriptions, and documentation. We know no other website that so candidly presents such a comprehensive window into viewing our global warming future.
Introduction for Climate Change Consulting Services
For individuals or businesses that desire individualized assistance, qualified members of the Job One for Humanity team are available for consulting on all aspects of climate change and global warming consequence adaptation, relocation, migration, or risk assessment for individuals, small businesses, large corporations, or local, regional, or national governments.
Global warming consequences are accelerating rapidly. Not having a global warming strategic plan will eventually adversely affect your assets and profitability. It will also affect whether you or your business survives what is yet to come.
Our risk assessment and consulting services include:
1. Individualized global warming consequence adaptation plans for your family, small business, or large corporation based on the risks of your current location.
2. Should they be necessary, individualized best relocation or migration locations and plans for your family, small business, large corporation, (or for specific sections of your small business or large corporation.)
3. Strategic short-term (3-5 year) and long-term (5, 10, 25, and 50 year) business plans to adapt to and compensate for all known accelerating global warming consequences and their rapidly shortening timelines.
We consult with all industries, including agriculture, vineyards, distribution, warehousing, military, etc. We also consult for local, regional, or national governments.
Our unique climate change and global warming risk spectrum and consequence knowledge can save individuals tens of thousands of dollars in consequence avoidance or mitigation. For small businesses and large corporations, the savings can range from hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions of dollars. This is because your organization will be better able to avoid many uninformed or wrong global warming consequence-related decisions.
Our cutting-edge analysis of current and escalating climate change and global warming risks and consequences has been based upon the analytical principles of systems theory as well as dialectical, meta-systemic theory. We offer a spectrum of risk analysis and consequence prediction depth not found in any other climate change and global warming consulting services.
All consulting fees go directly to our non-profit organization to help support its mission. (Fees are based on the general complexity of the client's needs and services needed.)
1. Individual consulting: $125 per hour,
2. Small business consulting: $185 per hour,
3. Large corporation consulting: $350 per hour.
On larger consulting projects we may require a deposit to do the unique strategic research, risk analysis or planning for that project.

Almost everyone has heard about the Doomsday Clock created by a group of nuclear scientists not long after the advent of dropping the first atomic bomb on Japan in 1945. The goal of this first nuclear scientist's Doomsday Clock was to warn the world and to quantify and timeline how close we were to nuclear war, human extinction, and our doomsday.

Lawrence Wollersheim published Why Our Organization is NOT a Survivalist, Prepper, Doomer, Post-Doomer, or "Near Term Humanity Extinction" Community in Blog 2021-03-11 11:36:26 -0800
Why Our Organization is NOT a Survivalist, Prepper, Doomer, Post-Doomer or a "Near Term Humanity Extinction" Community!
After reviewing all of the scary future consequences concerning the 12 major challenges of our future found on the Universe Spirt and Job One for Humanity websites, it is only fair to wonder if we are some group of survivalists or end of the world preppers, doomers, or supporters of the growing "near term human extinction" or post-doom movements. We are definitively not!
Our focus is education and engaged social activism. We are although, wisely helping to prepare others for the unavoidably painful road ahead created by our previous individual and collective bad decisions.
We also are not techno-optimists or techno-delusionists. We do not believe that magical carbon-sucking unicorns, desperate last chance geo-engineering, or other delusional techno-miracles will save us in time or without even worse side effects.
We do not support the growing premise that total human extinction sometime over the rest of this century is a certainty. The qualified truth is that --- only if we do not come close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets will the likelihood of total human extinction rise to the level of urgent threat. Furthermore, total extinction in this worst-case will take at least another 50-70 years to begin its final phases.
Therefore, all is not lost --- yet! We do have some time left (to about 2025) to make the needed critical changes.
On the other hand, it is also essential to be candid that many horrendous global warming and other related consequences are already "baked into" our global systems, and those consequences are now unavoidable! These many "baked in" consequences will also eventually cause the inevitable die-off of much of humanity by mid-century.
Because of this cascade of unavoidable coming consequences, we also face a probable widespread and intensifying collapse of many of our weakest local, regional, and national social and economic systems as we approach the mid-century.
Yes, we certainly do face yet the largest evolutionary challenge in humanity's long history of great survival challenges. And, there are still some positive things we can do.
To manage our 12 worst global crises will require nothing less than radical global changes to our current lifestyles and livelihoods. At the same time, we also will have to vigorously prepare for and adapt to the catastrophic consequences we can no longer prevent.
To learn more about the radical changes in our livelihoods and lifestyles needed to survive and thrive through the coming consequences and post-collapse era, click here first and read about the principles of sustainable prosperity. Then click the following links to see Part 1 and Part 2 of the Job One for Humanity Plan, which will provide detailed emergency preparation and adaptation steps, respectively.
Do not mistake us for some survivalist or apocalyptic community concerning our research on the current out-of-control global warming and the other 11 major converging global adaptive challenges facing our collective future.
Our message is simple, proactive, and not a doomer or a fatalistic message:
1. "We are a community of activists that believes in learning from our mistakes, being prepared, and that being adaptable is a wise evolutionary strategy.
2. We, as humans, are intelligent and adaptive beings, and we can solve or adapt to almost anything.
3. Life on Earth has always found a way to learn, adapt, and survive so. In the last 4.5 billion years of Earth's evolution, life has survived 5 previous mass extinctions. (See this page for more on life's evolutionary success.)
4. The future is unknown and full of unpredictable negative and positive wild cards. This means that there is still hope for some part of humanity and our civilization to survive if we quickly execute responsible, intelligent, and effective adaptive actions that will resolve our most pressing global challenges using a "first things first" strategy.
5. When we or future generations do get through our current 12 major global challenges, we will have built something new together that is far better adapted and suitable for achieving a positive and sustainable future for ALL.
6. Overcoming this emergency will help us better solve our challenges as one effective and united human family. This experience also will teach us and help us to live the Universe Principles of progressive evolution and sustainable prosperity.
7. In spite of the rough road ahead, we can still fully enjoy each day (as best as we can, even in spite of the worsening of these 12 global challenges.)
8. Working together in new sustainable communities (like our Universe Spirit Eco-community model,) we can make our lives as happy and as good as they will get during this temporary retrogression and transition period. And finally,
9. We are not survivalists or end of the world preppers, doomers, or avid supporters of the growing "near term human extinction" or post-doom movements. If you want to call us by some new name, call us post-collapse thrivers. This name reflects our focus on doing all that is needed to get through this transition to thrive in the post-collapse future.
As Michael Dowd, the evolutionary teacher likes to say, "what really matters is coming back into the right relationship with reality." Because humanity has repeatedly failed to effectively resolve the escalating global warming emergency as well as our other 11 deteriorating global challenges, we are forced by their unthinkable and unbearable consequences to come back into the right relationship to reality and each other, or we will eventually perish.
The power of reality is the force motivating us to evolve and it is truly great news!
Have no doubt about it, humanity has reached a monumental evolutionary juncture and, we are running out of time to prevent the eventual complete extinction of humanity. Only a comprehensive mass mobilization by our governments can lessen the coming suffering and save the future.
In our organization, we see ourselves as a new evolutionary community of Evolutioneers and Planetary and Universe Citizens that value the historical wisdom of appropriate threat preparedness and living sustainably to model the new world we want to live in. We are not fear manipulated or fear dominated, but we do not ignore data that should trigger positive, protective, and appropriate evolutionary fear reactions.
We will always use the appropriate and positive evolutionary fear warning feedback contained within accurate but survival-negative information to wisely anticipate, prepare, and quickly adapt.
We know that it is better to act and save something than not to act and lose everything!
We are not doomers, post-doomers, or preppers who have given up on the future, are living in hiding or resignation. We are sustainability activists still full of hope that we can:
1. face the true urgency of all of our current global crises, resolve what we can, and adapt to what we can't.
2. create the new community model needed for the new behaviors and systems that will resolve today's biggest global problems and become a global basis of a better world for ALL.
Yes, we also are preparing new sustainable communities in advance for this human-created crisis and this temporary, and transitional "evolutionary bottleneck and retrogression." We are doing this solely because the current facts clearly shout that many of our global systems are in a severe challenge or are nearing critical tipping points with no or low remaining recovery resilience.
To the discerning evaluator and researcher, both human history and the current worsening 12 global challenges indicate that our lives will continue to get worse with little realistic hope of correction until the chain reaction of cascading multiple global catastrophes and crossed tipping points shake us awake to the need for drastic evolutionary change toward more sustainable livelihoods and lifestyles.
We hold that the main unrecognized threats for today and the future are that:
1. other than nuclear war, the main accelerator and driver of humanity's total extinction is now global warming.
2. the world still does not realize that when the climate system goes over its extinction-triggering tipping points, there is nothing you can do to stop the physics and mathematics of the consequences of those tipping points from manifesting their deadly consequences. (How soon we will cross the extinction-triggering global warming tipping points are described here.)
Once you realize the hard reality of where we are...
It is also critical to keep our dangerous global threats in an appropriate time perspective to avoid counter-productive panic. Depending on your current location, you should still have enough time to prepare for and adapt to the myriad of now unavoidable global warming consequences. It is wholly appropriate to feel fear at this dangerous juncture in the evolution of humanity because of the many known consequences of accelerating global warming and the worsening of these 11 additional global crises.
While generalized fear or panic often paralyzes, there are positive evolutionary reasons for why the emotion of fear exists. The positive use of fear exists for when there are REAL threats to your survival. Positive fear mobilizes the observant and wise to act before it is too late!
To support the positive and wise use of fear relating to global warming and other consequences (from these 11 other global crises,) here are the critical deadlines to remember:
a. The 5-year deadline: (From now until the end of 2025.) At this time, it is appropriate to admit it is all but impossible for us to reach the full 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets! But, we still do have enough time left to slow down (but not avoid,) a mid-century mass extinction event for much of humanity by getting close to them. Although we passed the point of being able to avoid the die-off of much of humanity by 2050, we still can maintain some level of control of our global warming future. Most importantly, we can still prevent total extinction by at least getting very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets!
This total extinction danger also means we have to educate the world about the extinction-evoking global warming tipping point deadlines of this emergency after preparing our personal survive and thrive provisions and/or creating safe sustainable community cooperatives or sanctuaries.
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 2020 to 2027, global warming consequences will steadily worsen in a rising but steeper linear progression. More people will wisely migrate to safer areas. Millions more will die because of climate-related food shortages and other global warming-related catastrophes.
If you have prepared, adapted, and are in a global warming safer location before 2027 and have a good Plan B in place, depending upon your location, relative stability and security for family and business are probable until about 2030 to 2040. (See this Plan B page, which discusses how to prepare in the safest locations and what are the least safe places to ride out the global warming extinction emergency.)
c. The 10-15 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and we 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 global warming consequences and global warming amplifying the consequences of most of these 11 other critical global challenges.
The stability and security of even the safest and best prepared global warming safer locations will lessen and become increasingly challenging. Those individuals in supportive cooperatives or sustainable communities should be significantly safer and better adapted than those who are not.
d. The 15-25 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and we did not get close to meeting these targets.) Beginning around 2030, the frequency, severity, and size of 20 worst global warming consequences will move from a steeply rising linear progression into an exponential progression. Stability and security for even the best prepared, safer global warming locations, cooperatives, and sustainable communities will become far more difficult and dangerous.
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 or compensated for these targets somewhere over this time period.) By mid-century, extinction for much of humanity will be still unavoidable. From 2030-2050 will be the riskiest period to survive for much to most of society. Generally, things will be better in the safer global warming locations, and in special cooperatives, and sustainable communities. But even there, survival is far from guaranteed without the highest levels of preparation, adaptation, and cooperation.
f. The 50-year 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, and we will be heading toward the beginning of the runaway greenhouse gas effect, which ripped the atmosphere off Venus. Because of this escalating runaway global warming reality and not getting close to the 2025 reduction targets, humanity will, unfortunately, finally face a total extinction event beginning as soon as 2070-2100. We call this the full Climageddon Scenario.
The good timeline news here is simple. If we at least, get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, we can still prevent total human extinction. If we do not, we begin crossing too many additional extinction-triggering tipping points far too fast to prevent the worst consequences of runaway global warming multiplying the worsening effects of the other 11 major global crises.
We believe that it is important not to hide these reasonable and rational facts and high probabilities.
We believe there is a real urgency to get prepared for what is soon unavoidable.
We are not detached, survivalists. We are engaged sustainability advocates, Evolutioneers, and Planetary Citizens.
We can make it through this great evolutionary transition period, capture the once-in-a-generation opportunity from the collective catharsis of the pandemic catastrophe, and then use that energy to make long-overdue and critically needed improvements to our social systems!
We can re-build our social systems based upon sustainable and limited growth for all vs. the cancer-like concepts of uncontrolled growth or unlimited growth for the few.
We believe in whole-heartedly working for the best possible future while at the same time wisely being prepared for the worst possible temporary human transition period.
We fully prepare for the worst and then "forget" about those preparations while focusing and wholeheartedly working for the best!
We hold that actively saving all we can is far better than inactively saving nothing.
We hold that some of us will prepare, adapt, survive and thrive once again if we act wisely. We should not give up the small amount of rational, appropriate hope that remains. The history of life evolving on Earth strongly supports the premise that some of us will survive. (See this page with the big picture view of evolution on Earth.)
We envision that the establishment of new sustainable communities around the world will play an essential role in securing the long-term survival of humanity and establishing the new sustainable prosperity vision for the post widespread collapse world.
We will deal with our 12 global challenges by using only peaceful and evolutionary means.
We can still find daily enjoyment and joy in our relationships and life experiences no matter how bad it gets.
We can together create a long-term future for humanity and our civilization. And, if we are wise and work together, someday we or our children will successfully evolve both here on Earth and eventually out into the stars.
The main goals of our non-profit organization are to:
a. get more people adapting to and ready for the many now unavoidable and severe, accelerating global warming consequences, particularly global warming's secondary economic, ecological, and political consequences,
while we also,
b. find some way to compel world governments to use and enforce the correct human extinction-preventing 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
And finally, even if the accelerating global warming emergency and the convergence of it with humanity's 11 other key global challenges were somehow resolved in the next 30 to 50 years or turned out to be not as bad as currently is predicted by our best scientists, the new sustainable communities which we are co-creating would function even better and more joyously on their other main goals of helping to co-create the necessary restructuring and re-alignment of society to create:
a,) a sustainable prosperity for ALL of humanity,
b.) a just and equitable civilization,
c.) thriving and meaning-filled individuals and communities --- all of which align with and forward the progressive evolution of life in the universe.
For the last 11 years, our organization has been working on that plan called the Job One for Humanity Plan. It is called that because that is exactly what it is; humanity's job number one to survive and thrive.
The good news is that if we want to survive and lessen the coming suffering, we need to execute this plan NOW.
For additional support and evaluation
We can still maintain the perseverance needed to succeed in this monumental task by regularly reviewing the many benefits which will occur as we work successfully on this project together. Although we are now in what could be called a Great Global Collapse process triggered by accelerating global warming, this collapse process will eventually offer equal to (or even greater than) long-term benefits in the form of a potential Great Rebirth beyond the coming suffering and loss.
First on this page (that has been read almost 2 million times,) and then this other critical global warming benefit page, you will find the many often hidden surprise benefits of the global warming challenge. You also will find a framework and the possibilities for what could be called a post-collapse Great Rebirth, no matter how bad the collapse process gets.

The Job One Volunteer Team
Lawrence Wollersheim published 2021 Global Warming & Climate Change Predictions in Blog 2021-02-02 10:04:18 -0800
Every year we put out our list of new global warming predictions early in the new year. Year after year we have been very accurate! Psychologists say it is best to provide the bad news first.Read more
Today, no matter where you live in the world, you can start on and self-organize a meaningful and vital volunteer project at Job One for Humanity. Our volunteer projects below are based mostly upon our Job One for Humanity Plan to manage, reduce, or slow down our accelerating global warming consequences and, help lessen many of these other major global crises.
Here is how to start:
1. Before you pick your project(s) below, please read this brief overview of the Job One Plan. It will help you select a volunteer project best suited for your current interests and circumstances. Next,
2. Pick a project below to begin.
3. Once you feel comfortable then recruit other like-minded people in your areas to help support you and your new group, but most importantly, to expand the success of your chosen project area. This will help make these projects much easier to move forward.
Here are our current projects:
Project 1: Part One of the Job One Plan. Emergency Adaptation, Preparation & Migration Survival Kit for Global Warming and Climate Change
This is primarily about getting you and your loved ones prepared for what is coming.
Project 2: Part Two of the Job One Plan. Individual Adaption Actions to Reduce Fossil Fuel Use & Survive and Thrive Through What is Coming
This is primarily about all of the actions you can take to reduce your fossil fuel use and the other things you can do to increase your sustainability.
Project 3: Part Three of the Job One Plan. Critical Government-Driven Actions Needed to Slow a Global Warming Triggered Extinction Event
This is for individuals with direct influence with politicians, ultra-wealthy individuals or corporations, or celebrities. You will use that influence to influence our current politicians to act. This urgency is because we have delayed effective action so long that only immediate radical government action can save us.
Project 4: Part Four of the Job One Plan Step 1. What will it take to get our governments to end the global warming-caused extinction emergency?
Project 4: Part Four of the Job One Plan Step 2. How to Get Our Governments to Act to Prevent Human, Animal, and Biological Extinction, Step 2
This is for individuals without direct influence with politicians, ultra-wealthy individuals or corporations, or celebrities. Part Four offers indirect strategies to get governments to do the steps in Part Three of the Job One Plan.
Project 5: Get involved in our new Eco-communities project, described briefly below.
Enthusiastic volunteers worldwide are self-organizing new eco-communities. They will have a higher survival potential where you live now and in safer global warming areas, possibly in the future. These new eco-communities will become places where you and your family can survive global warming and these other 11 crises.
They will also be places where you can thrive because these new eco-communities will be places working toward:
a. having sustainable gardens and farms (an agrihood)
b. net-zero energy construction,
c. individual growth and development,
d. off-the-grid independence,
f. a new system of personalized democratic management.
If you want to be involved in helping to co-create these new eco-community(s) by becoming a liaison, leader, or coordinator we suggest the following:
1. Read this page first to get a quick general idea of what is happening with the global warming emergency.
3. Then read this page for why it is necessary to get prepared NOW.
4. Next, read this page to learn more about us. And,
5. Next, become a member here. Then read the members-only information on the Universe Communities and the global warming migration sections. After that, go to the "how to be a part of these self-organizing new eco-communities section at the end of the Universe community articles.

Lawrence Wollersheim published The Four Types of Universe Communities in Introducing the Universe Eco-Communities 2021-01-20 15:58:10 -0800
As you will soon discover, the new Universe Communities are capable of doing many things. Three of the four types of Universe communities are also designed to be prepared to survive any large-scale global or regional emergency.
This emergency preparedness includes being ready for crises such as:
a. accelerating global warming,
b. large-scale resource depletion,
c. economic instabilities,
d. distribution breakdowns,
e. more pandemics,
d. economic crashes, deep recessions or depressions,
f. breakdowns of law and order, governments, etc.
(The many emergencies, crises, and local and global challenges that these communities must survive over the following next few decades are described in detail in this article.)
At the worst, these new small communities, sanctuaries, and micro-cultures should allow you (and your families) to survive through the coming difficult times with as much peace, stability, security, comfort, happiness, and meaningful relationships that remain possible. At the same time, many of our large macro-cultures will be convulsing and collapsing.
These new communities located in global warming safer areas may also turn out to be humanity's best chances to save and salvage whatever we can of society and civilization.
These global warming safer areas (or migrations to them) are done exclusively so that humanity and civilization will survive and thrive over the coming decades and eventually re-emerge to reboot the world onto a wiser, better path.
In the safest land-based locations, individuals can look forward to a higher probability of having meaningful lives in the post-extinction and subsequent Great Collapse and Great Rebirth cycle. A better life to come can also occur once nature and the consequences from humanity's previous bad decisions have run their course.
The Universe Community Global Structure
The Job One for Humanity and Universe Spirit organizations focus on educating individuals and businesses about what is avoidable and what is unavoidable in the face of many rapidly unfolding environmental and social global collapse processes. Its primary mission is to help individuals, as a society, prepare for and optimally adapt to survive the coming collapses.
These nonprofit organizations will help individuals form groups and communities that will evolve and create sustainable lifestyles, and livelihoods in global warming and crisis-safer locations. Job One for Humanity will also continue to educate governments and support government-driven migration, infrastructure transfer, and emergency backup programs to deal with the accelerating global warming extinction emergency.
Universe Spirit provides a broad science-grounded knowledge base, focusing on biological evolution, to explain what is developing in both society and the physical world. This "fact-based" foundation is then used to create remedial "survive and thrive" strategies.
Universe Spirit also contains a science-balanced and healthy vision of open-source personal spirituality called Evolution Spirituality. This vision uniquely captures a new moral and ethical "high road" to achieve a sustainable, equitable, thriving future for all while also providing the most profound meaning, purpose, and values needed to emotionally and spiritually survive the coming hardships.
The Universe Community Structure Options
An important part of the bond that defines our organization is our shared belief that the world will soon be facing a severe and unavoidable cascading chain of global warming and these other interconnected catastrophes and collapses. Anticipating these catastrophes and collapses, we are following two paths while we also do everything we can through demanding government action to mitigate and lessen the coming tragedies:
a. One way is educating about how to create three kinds of land-based sustainable eco-communities.
b. The other way is to promote the gathering of a virtual online worldwide support and action community.
(If you are uncertain about the seriousness of what we mean when we say the world is facing an unavoidable accelerating chain of catastrophes, click here. To see the government actions we must resolutely push while building these communities, click here.)
What are the four types of Universe communities?
The Universe Community (UC) program includes four community types: ( three land-based; one virtual.) All three of the land-based paths are defined by physical, land-based groupings of individuals. These physically close member relationships will provide a higher potential to survive and thrive by being closer-knit communities of mutual support and advanced preparation and adaptation.
Everyone who is volunteering and co-ordinating or co-creating any of the 4 types of Universe communities will have open-source access to all of the evolving information on the creation, maintenance, and expansion of these communities. Please note that all 4 types of Universe communites will be created by new volunteers. Additionally, because the staff at Job One for Humanity and Universe Spirit are all over 50, we will not be migrating ourselves to these new land-based communities because the limited global warmer safer lands must be ethically preserved for those under 30 and those with very young children.
The following provides more details on each of these four community paths:
1. The Integrated Universe Community Option
This is a land-based community located in areas known to be at LOW risk of climate damage and LOW social unrest. These individuals could live separately in private homes, either near each other or even with each other in some form of communal housing. This kind of community would also have the ability to attract a large membership to the area capable of exerting enough influence on its surrounding population to gain some level of independence in its culture and economic and political activity.
These communities can be structured to follow surrounding urban, suburban, and rural architectures worldwide. They will preferably use repurposed existing structures rather than building from scratch to minimize environmental impact and start quickly.
As such, to a surrounding community, they would appear not unlike any other "immigrant" implant community with its own culture and commercial practices. For example, consider the many religious groups who are conspicuous because of dress, holiday observance, religious schooling, etc. While adopting many cultural changes in these new areas, these people will not appear any more disruptive to the surrounding people than the range of current norms. Integrated community members would also be expected to participate in most of the essential activities of the communities surrounding them.
The Universe One version of the Integrated community model is primarily a community for those in close agreement with the Universe community values, and already in or can migrate to a climate and migration safe living area. (Some individuals will choose to create their own independent integrative communities and we wish them success with that as well.)
Here are some additional special efforts that apply to an Integrated Community:
Actions will be taken to prepare for long and even persistent social and material disruptions. These will not only include establishing stockpiles of food and materials but also manufacturing facilities for necessary items.
Actions will be taken to establish "preferred" trade links and transportation systems to supply "necessities" that can not be produced in the local community.
Because of eventual and anticipated breakdowns in social structure and governance at all levels, actions will be taken to organize the community to overcome any outdated or corrupt processes causing the world's breakdowns.
The above will be accomplished while, at the same time, trying to maintain peaceful adherence to and interaction with local customs in the "surrounding community." (More details describing the basics for how much of this will be accomplished are presented on the Job One and Universe Spirit websites. A reading guide for this material is included at the end of this article.)
Please also be aware that the Universe Integrated Communities are the farthest along in their creation having seed liaisons/organizers in several key areas willing to help others migrate to those selected and currently secret areas.
Universe One: The first Universe Integrated Community
Universe One is the first Integrated Universe community to form, and it is now taking applications. The Universe One eco-community is created directly by the volunteer staff and management team at Job One for Humanity and Universe Spirit.
Universe One will also be the new relocated administrative headquarters for Job One for Humanity and Universe Spirit and the relocated new homes of willing Job One for Humanity and Universe Spirit volunteers and members.
The Universe One community is the community vision upon which we have spent the most time and resources to find the best area for the safest relocation area that would survive best in the US with global warming and the other 11 global crises worsening. It is also a membership by-application-only community.
As the first of the Universe communities, it will strive to reflect the highest application of the ideas, values, and principles found on the Job One for Humanity and Universe Spirit websites. If you feel that you are well aligned with the ideas, values, and principles found on the Job One for Humanity and Universe Spirit websites, and you are interested in becoming a part of our community, please follow the application instructions on another page of this document.
For those needing to migrate soon and be a part of the first Universe Integrated Communities: Universe One
If you are not in a climate safer location and you are financially able to move on your own, your first step is applying and being accepted for Universe One membership. Once accepted for membership, migration and the current location information will be provided to help you make a wise decision to select the best land or new home in the Universe One area.
Please note we do not give out Universe One's location until you have been accepted as a provisional member and passed through our interviewing process. Universe one is the safest practical location we could find after many visits to many areas and complex and costly evaluations.
Universe One is located where there was the convergence of the most safety and security factors, and the area is still affordable to middle-class and lower-middle-class individuals. It is in a climate where there will be cold winters and considerable snowfall alternating with warm and humid summers. (Areas other than the Universe One location where independent Integrated communities are being seeded are listed further below.)
2. The Satellite Universe Community:
(Please note the Satellite community model has not yet begun as it is waiting for new volunteers to create it.)
This is a land-based community that can be located anywhere in the world. It has either a very sparse membership (compared to its surroundings) or is found in a location known to be at high risk of climate damage or social unrest. Its members are close enough to meet occasionally physically, usually live in separate housing, but have little ability to significantly change the larger community.
Their membership gives them the benefit of UC knowledge, companionship, and support to plan for emergency preparedness and self-protection during the crises to come. They also would use the Universe community's cultural changes and values, but these will not appear to most people as any more disruptive than the range of current norms.
The Universe Satellite Community will allow you to make temporary preparations and adaptations right where you live now! Individuals and small groups will receive informational and virtual support from the existing membership in other Universe communities. These Satellite communities can be formed in any part of the world. Their culture and commercial structures can vary widely.
Here is a summary of the typical steps you would take to integrate into one of these communities after being accepted for membership.
1. You will receive a lot of informational support material. What is essential at this point is to find out the "alignment" of your community role. Your new role will depend on a large number of factors like: your type of housing, what you do for employment, any special skills you have, your skill levels in those areas; any public roles or positions you have; your interests and hobbies, etc. Of particular importance is understanding the key reasons you chose to join the Universe community.
Based on this information, you will be given contact information for other members in your area to help you integrate into the community. Specifically, however, the following elements will be true:
You will continue to live, in your current housing situation.
You will continue to work, in your current employment.
A large part of your "free time" will turn toward the community's efforts to prepare for the coming crises.
As you "learn your way around the community," including attending volunteered offered training programs, you will have the opportunity to also lead various efforts.
As a member, you will have access to all the preparedness, sustainability, and management guidance information developed for participation within any Universe community.
(This above information assumes there is already an active Satalitte community at your current location, or you will start one. If you want to establish a new community, see the new member "how to join" section at the end of this overview to provide relevant details. After joining, expect to be contacted by your community coordinator based on the information provided during the membership process.
We will set up a Zoom group video "question and answers" meeting for those most interested in getting started in a Universe Satalite community as soon as we have completed some critical volunteer staffing requirements for this particular project.)
3. The Unified Universe Community:
(Please note the Unified community model has not yet begun as it is waiting for new volunteers to create it.)
This is a land-based community that is essentially built from the ground up with legal provisions to establish a community boundary and exclude non-members from the community. It would only be located in an area known to be at LOW risk of climate damage and LOW social unrest. Its residential accommodations and commercial structures would be custom designed to support an ideal and sustainable Universe community culture and commerce.
A Universe Unified Community is a “contiguous” physical community that is mostly composed of Universe community members. That means the land, living structures, and commercial structures within a bounded area defined as the “community” are mostly owned or operated by Universe community members. These communities will all be located in climate, migration, and other critical crisis safer living areas.
These types of Universe communities will take many years to build and require millions of dollars in financing.
What, of course, differentiates the “Unified” community from the “Integrated” community is the absence of interspersed social and commercial activities that differ from Universe community values and practices.
There are two different models for how such “Unified” communities could emerge. The first and most difficult is to build a unified eco-community from the ground up. Such a community could realistically include about 500 to about 2,000 individuals on about 2,000 to 10,000 acres of fertile land.
Such a community could take an estimated 10 to 20 years to complete. Its major obstacle will be financing because of the cost of building all the structures, plus installing all the infrastructure, i.e., utilities, sewer, roads, etc. However, such communities are not impossible, as the explosive growth of entire “suburbs” has shown in California and the Southwest.
The second model starts with a thriving “Integrated” community established in a relatively sparse or abandoned area of an existing city or town. As the community becomes successful, it can attract local people or purchase additional properties from non Universe community citizens selling their properties.
While including all the steps shown for both the Satellite and Integrated Communities above, the Unified Community would add the following elements:
1. the ability to grow substantial amounts of “local” food in both fertile farms and aquaponics pods.
2. the reorganization of social culture and commercial markets in the form of the ideals of Personalized Democracy could become complete. This reorganization would produce an explosion of creativity and personal freedoms. It would also eliminate many human-made oppressions humans have suffered from since the dawn of “civilization.”
3. crime, poverty, homelessness, starvation, racism, and commercial wage-slavery would eventually be eliminated.
4. reduced transport costs, environmental harm, and improved food quality.
Along with a substantially reduced world population, these steps will finally bring about the abundance, and excellent quality of life humans have always sought.
(This project is off in the future for quite a while. It will take a very large team of well-financed, dedicated and skilled volunteers to lead it.)
4. The Virtual Universe Community:
(Please note the Virtual community model has not yet begun as it is waiting for new volunteers to create it.)
This community path consists of developing a virtually connected community of individuals. These are physically remote members, who share common Job One for Humanity and Universe Spirit values, but are currently unable to move into other existing communities.
Their primary activity will be collecting and promoting climate, ecological and other needed evidence and facts. They will provide trustworthy resources to help other members who have self-organized local eco-communities or cooperatives and for those who have moved to safer locations to continue the necessary development and adaptation for looming disasters.
Three factors unite these virtual members into a community:
1. They share common Universe Community values;
2. They can turn to other community members for mutual support and survival. This mutual support action draws on the community's shared worldview to provide relevant help.
3. The community members are strongly driven by a mutual "love of knowledge and truth." They understand the importance of having a compendium of knowledge based on reliable facts.
4. they can turn to the Universe Community for reliable information about global warming, migration, and other related world crises issues, and
5. they are primarily "identified" by subject matter interest. For example, sub online groups and communities will form around interests like climate change, resource depletion, psychology, medicine, permaculture, net-zero home design, etc. Many hundreds of online interest groups like this are expected.
Membership in this virtual community gives one the benefit of ALL UC knowledge to improve their individual development, adaptation, and protection.
These are a Universe community based primarily online. While their members may meet physically for meetings or conferences, they wouldn't meet physically with frequency. Furthermore, they are not geographically bounded as the "land-based" communities are. They are intentionally structured to develop online a broad international, supportive, internet-connected community of individuals and small organizations.
Their primary activity will be collecting evidence-based subject matter of relevance and subsequently adding it into community knowledge databases. Like members of the Satellite Community, their membership gives them the benefit of ALL UC knowledge to improve their individual development, adaptation, and protection.
Each community's primary activity will be collecting climate and social truth information related to their subject interest and adding it into specialized knowledge forums and databases. These forums and databases will have novel provisions that achieve the following:
- The information is easily accessible, even for complex subjects.
- Data is entered in a form that allows biases to be spotted.
- Knowledge entries are "comprehensive." That is, "mainstream" control is eliminated.
- The data capture process overcomes the significant flaws that have crippled most internet discussions and communications.
- Commercial firms or governments will no longer control knowledge with political or other bias.
- All members will have no-cost access to the database, both for finding and reading information and for contributing knowledge.
This combination of provisions gives a virtual Universe community membership great value because it will provide a new level of visibility for people and organizations worldwide and easy access to the highest levels of natural truth. Specifically:
- They can discover wisdom and creativity in the new concepts presented by the Universe community model
- They see personal, social, and possibly professional benefits for applying the new concepts to their efforts
- They see the benefits of belonging to the Universe community for the unique networking opportunities it will provide them
- They understand the survival need for the mutual support these collaborative and supportive virtual eco-communities can bring.
- They see within themselves the qualities and aspirations sought in the Universe community principles and values.
- They see in themselves unique talents to contribute to and be acknowledged for making improvements to the community's efforts and the world as a whole.
Common similarities between the four types of Universe communities
Given the above specific differences for the four community types, all four Universe communities also have the following similarities:
- A primary goal is bringing together, either physically or virtually, a very diverse group of individuals working peacefully toward similar goals.
- Interactions with others will be approached as mutual learning experiences based on our foundation of natural knowledge and scientific inquiry processes.
- After secure and established in their communities, individuals or groups would also begin to guide newer members.
- All USC members will be expected to be tolerant of all other members' diverse "heritage cultures" on an individual by individual basis. This tolerance factor can be enhanced using the creative new approaches of Personalized Democracy.
- All members will be expected to accept and practice the member "Qualities" listed elsewhere in this overview and linked in the Job One and Universe Spirit websites' materials.
- We anticipate the creation of many of the different types of Universe communities around the world. Once established, these communities might also engage in trade and barter of goods and services that they might not produce in their area.
- We also acknowledge that any USC established will have to live and work among existing cultures that may differ from those of the USC.
We will set up a Zoom group video "question and answers" meeting for those most interested in getting started in the Universe Virtual community as soon as we have completed some additional and critical volunteer staffing requirements needed for this project)
Factors that Unite the Members of the Integrated, Satellite, Unified, and Virtual Universe Communities:
1. They share common Universe Community values.
2. They can turn to other members of the community for mutual survival and support. This trust draws on the community's shared worldview.
3. Community members are strongly driven by a mutual "love of knowledge and truth." They understand the importance of having and using a compendium of knowledge based on reliable facts. This shared knowledge is a primary foundation for joint action and assistance.
The previous three items define the primary activity of the community. That is, each member will use their skills to collect evidence-based subject matter of relevance to creating a sustainable, surviving, and thriving community in a collapsing world. The new knowledge being developed will be subsequently added into a new Universal knowledge database.
Membership in any of the Universe community types gives them the benefit of ALL UC knowledge to improve their individual development, adaptation, and protection.
How the New Universe Communities Will Come into Existence and Grow
Several factors will drive the creation and growth rates of the four different types of Universe Communities:
- How fast and how many self-organizing competent volunteers show up to help us with this challenge of historic dimensions,
- The natural forces of evolution,
- The dynamics of how fast things worsen and where they worsen will also be a decisive selection factor for community growth and which communities grow the fastest,
- How new volunteers will maintain and expand these new communities.
For any of the four kinds of Universe communities to appear, there must be people who understand our emergency's urgency need to come forward and take one of the many self-organizing volunteer leadership positions available. Then they will then need to self-organize and self-finance their chosen project area with other volunteers with similar interests.
The Universe community needs many kinds of volunteers. We need community liaisons, coordinators, and leaders/co-creators:
1. Community liaisons already live in the area or are highly knowledgeable about it. They share that information with new or potentially new members.
2. Community coordinators are more involved in greeting and supporting new or potential new members and assisting them in coming up to speed on what the community is doing. Among other things, a coordinator might set up and oversee a community buying cooperative.
3. Community leaders/co-creators do everything necessary to lead, maintain, or co-create these new eco-communities.
Here are just a few of the four community type of specialized positions we need to fill quickly:
- Integrated Universe community liaisons, coordinators, and leader/co-creators: These are individuals who want to liaise, organize or lead a Universe Integrated community in a new global warming safer area. They also want to collectively get prepared for and execute the Job One Plan's steps most applicable to their group's resources and interests. (This kind of community is farthest along with existing seed liaisons already in global warming safe areas.)
- Satellite Universe community liaisons, coordinators, and leaders/co-creators: These are individuals who want to organize or lead a new Universe Satalite community in their existing area. They also want to collectively prepare for and act on the Job One Plan's steps most applicable to their group's resources and interests.
- Virtual Universe community liaisons, coordinators, and leaders/co-creators: These are individuals or groups who want to help organize and run the virtual Universe community. Here they will also help others get prepared and act on the Job One Plan's steps most applicable to that virtual individual's (or group's) resources and interests. The virtual community will need discussion forum administrators, moderators, content creators, researchers, and software engineers, among other positions.
- Unified Universe community liaisons, coordinators, and leaders/co-creators: These are individuals or groups who want to help organize and run the Unified Universe communities.
- For the many other Universe community volunteer positions and projects currently available within our organizations, please click here.
All active volunteers helping to create these new Universe communities will receive free annual membership and access to all members-only areas of our Job One and Universe Spirit websites during their first 90 days of volunteering.
Seeds of the First Universe Communities
Almost all of the currently forming Universe communities below are close to the 45th parallel North in the US or Canada. Each of the areas listed below now has a community liaison living in that area (or knowledgeable about it) that can help with local migration information. (The areas below still need to recruit community coordinators and leader/co-creators to bring them into operational reality as communities.)
Our first new Universe community seed areas are:
a. Eastern Washington State/Western Idaho,
b. the Vancouver and Vancouver Islands area in British Columbia, Canada,
c. northeastern upper Wisconsin/ northeastern Upper Michigan,
If you are interested in being part of a Universe community in any of these areas, other than the Universe One community please let us know by following the "how to join" information later in this Universe community overview. Be sure to let us know which current migration location above most interests you. (Please note in our members-only section there are migration checklists and other local information to help you migrate.)
These first communities need well-resourced, highly developed, and skilled individuals to build them out. These early adopters are also individuals who are highly willing to learn, adapt, evolve, and thrive.
Let us know if you want to be a liaison, coordinator, or leader for a new worldwide location.
As new eco-communities form in new areas, we will add them to the running list above.
As appropriate, we will connect you to the liaison, coordinators, or leaders for that forming Universe community.
Timeframes for the When Four Types of Universe Communities Will Come into Existence, Our Projected Timelines
The launch of the four types of new Universe Communities will occur in the general phases and time frames described below. The roll-out time deadlines or sequences for the projects listed below will vary depending upon:
1. having enough skilled volunteers show up to help co-create and manage each particular phase and,
2. new information requiring that we adapt and evolve these time frames and deadlines accordingly.
For instance, because Satellite communities are easier to build in existing locations than migration-dependent Integrated communities into global warming safer locations. Satellite communities may start sooner than the timeline below. This early start for the Satellite communities will be especially true if volunteers in existing cities let us know that they want to get started immediately with the Job One for Humanity emergency preparation and adaptation steps (found in Part 1 and Part 2 of the Job One plan.)
If you are interested in any project below, let us know, even if it is before the project officially launches. Please email us at [email protected] and put the Project number (1,2,3,4,5,6) in the subject line, so your email is routed to the correct team member.
Project 1: July 2021-2022
Basic, person-to-person recruiting for all communities starts. In Phase 1, and as the first priority for the virtual and other types of Universe communities we will need volunteers for the following areas:
- A Deputy Project Director will be key to developing the four types of Universe communities.
- Volunteer Manager who will help inspire, train, and manage the first community member/volunteers.
We need to have the above key volunteers in place before we can launch and/or expand any of the four kinds new of communities listed below. Having dedicated volunteers trained and ready to help others will ensure our success and a smooth launch.
Project 2: Dates to be determined by new volunteers
We have already begun recruiting for the Universe One integrated community described above.
We will be setting up a Zoom group video "question and answers" meeting for those accepted as soon as we have completed some critical administrative and volunteer staffing requirements for the Universe One project.
Project 3: Dates to be determined by new volunteers
Private Recruiting for the Universe Integrated Communities starts
- This will be primarily for recruiting Integrated community liaisons, leaders, or key implementers who will begin an Integrated Universe community in their chosen migration area and, among other things,
- start its members on the emergency preparation and adaptation steps found in Part 1 and Part 2 of the Job One plan.
We will set up an early-bird Zoom group video "question and answers" meeting for those most interested in getting started as soon as we have completed some critical volunteer staffing requirements for this particular project.
Project 4: Dates to be determined by new volunteers
Private Recruiting for the Universe Satellite Communities starts (Private recruiting in most cases means that someone will personally refer and recommend you to someone on our team, and then we will contact you.)
- This private Satalite community recruiting will be primarily for community leaders or key implementers who will begin a Satellite Universe community in their chosen area and, among other things, start its members on the emergency preparation and adaptation steps found in Part 1 and Part 2 of the Job One plan.
We will set up a Zoom group video "question and answers" meeting for those most interested in getting started as soon as we have completed some critical volunteer staffing requirements for this particular project.
Project 5: Dates to be determined by new volunteers
For the Virtual Community we will be recruiting volunteers for the following areas:
Computer Science Specialist to help us find or create the best labor tracking software. We want to find or make the best barter/time tracking software so that volunteers and members without adequate finances can trade/barter their services with other better-financed community volunteers and members. They could also use this barter/trades software for community housing, health, and other community services.
- Human Resource Manager to assist the eco-community project director on all Universe community personnel issues
- Discussion forum moderators
- Software programmers - online Forum development
- Software programmers - large scale database experience
- Software programmers - project management software
- Software programmers - new virtual work credit currencies
- Individuals or organizations with topic interests that have temporary data storage resources
- Many topic specialists willing to be topic managers or to contribute– to be announced in detail one the JobOne website
- Complete software systems testing for new Universe Community communication, coordination, contribution tracking, and new volunteer training
We will set up an early-bird Zoom group video "question and answers" meeting for those most interested in getting started as soon as we have completed some critical volunteer staffing requirements for this particular project.
Project 6: Dates to be determined by new volunteers
Recruiting for the ground-up Universe Unified Communities starts
- This will be primarily for community leaders or key implementers who will begin a Unified Universe community in their chosen migration area.

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 four important ebooks with a $35.00 value!
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 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.
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.)
