10 Essential Climate Change Facts The Fossil Fuel Cartel Never Wants You to Know.

Last Updated 2.21.24.

The continually updated climate change facts below contain the uncensored climate science behind the current climate change consequences, solutions, timetables, and the correct global fossil fuel reduction targets. The information below will help you protect your home, family, local community, and future generations. 

This article was published by Job One for Humanity, an independent climate change think tank founded in 2008, known for speaking uncensored climate truth to power. The article below is not for children under 16 due to its serious adult matter.

Introduction

Here are four vital factors to review before you read the ten facts below:

1. This article may shock you because, for the last 4-6 decades, almost everything you have heard in the media, from your government, and from the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the IPCC) about climate change has been underestimated by about 30 to 60%. This has happened primarily because of a multibillion-dollar global disinformation campaign and the other criminal activities perpetrated by the global fossil fuel cartel.

If you do not believe that for decades, almost everything you have been told about climate change consequences, timetables, and solutions has been distorted or falsified by about 30 to 60%, please click here and read a detailed summary of the global fossil fuel cartel's global disinformation practices and its other criminal tactics. (You also can keep reading below and come back to the evidence link above when done with this article if you do not believe our disinformation and criminal activity statement.)

2. To help deal with so much potentially upsetting climate change news, at the end of the article, we have provided links to practical and effective solutions tailored to honest climate change solutions and resilience-building actions that you can personalize to help solve the climate change emergency and maximize your local preparation and resilience-building situation and resources.

3. If you know about how and why climate change and global warming occur from the burning of fossil fuels, you will get the most from the following ten climate facts. If you do not understand what causes climate change, please click here to learn how climate change happens before reading the rest of this article. (The illustration below shows just a few of the scores of climate change consequences.)

 

 

4. We do not expect you to believe the following ten climate change facts unquestioningly. After each fact, you will find an expanded version with more details and links to the deeper climate science and analysis. For over a decade, we have publicly challenged any climate change scientist, think tank, university climate department, national intelligence agency,  corporate or investment risk analyst department, or big environmental groups (like World Wildlife Fund, Greenpeace, Nature Conservancy, EarthJustice, Sierra Club, Conservation International, Rainforest Alliance) to prove any of the following ten climate facts and analysis below wrong. As of this date, no individual or organization has ever been able to do so. 

But, the ultimate and best proof of the validity ten climate facts and analysis below is when you personally experience or see in the news one of the consequences of climate change discussed below. For some individuals, nothing will convince them until they experience or witness the record-breaking extreme weather and other events described below. 

 

The ten uncensored climate change facts the global fossil fuel cartel NEVER wants you to know

The first seven facts are quite serious. The last three are more hopeful and solution-focused.

Fact 1. Our politicians and governments have utterly and completely failed to fix the climate change emergency for the last six decades.

Our governments are not even making any effective progress or even close to the required progress on lowering greenhouse gases that could save humanity from eventual mass extinction. This failure is because of the multibillion-dollar, decades-long ongoing climate change disinformation campaigns and the continuous and pervasive coercive influence of the global fossil fuel cartel on our politicians and governments.

It is a horrible shock to hear that our governments have not made any effective or the required fossil fuel reduction use progress when the news, most environmental groups, and our politicians keep telling us climate change progress is being made.

Here is the simple proof that we are not making ANY climate change reduction progress, which the global fossil fuel cartel never wants you to see. Measuring atmospheric greenhouse gas levels is the most accurate measure of real climate change reduction progress. The graph below shows the story of the three major fossil fuel-burning atmospheric greenhouse gases: carbon (CO2), methane (CH4), and Nitrous Oxide (N2O). The numbers at the bottom of the illustration are the AD dates in history. The IPCC is the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. AR6 is the IPCC's climate summary report. NOAA is the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. PPB is parts per billion. PPM is parts per million.

Please notice how fast greenhouse gases have risen in the gray vertical rectangles on the right. Also, at around 1800 AD, greenhouse gases begin to increase far beyond any earlier levels. About 1800 AD was the beginning of the fossil fuel-burning industrial revolution. Particularly, notice how, from about 1950 to 1980, the rates of toxic and poisonous greenhouse gases entering our atmosphere began rising exponentially. 

 

 

As you can see from above, our governments have failed to make any real progress that reduces global fossil fuel use (as shown in the actual reduction of the three biggest and most dangerous greenhouse gases.) If our governments had made real and honest progress, the lines on the greenhouse gases graph above would go down and not up at even faster and steeper rates.

Yes, the global fossil fuel cartel's wealth, disinformation, and undue influence tactics have caused our politicians worldwide to block the critical fossil fuel reduction regulations that would reduce global fossil fuel use to the levels required to save humanity and our future. The global fossil fuel cartel has also compromised the world's climate media coverage and the UN's IPCC climate change summary reports so that the media and the IPCC consistently censor and significantly underestimate:

a. the coming severity of climate consequences, 

b. the timetables for the most severe climate consequences and 

c. the correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets to avoid an endless chain of ever-worsening climate change catastrophes. 

It is also time to remind you about the single greatest force preventing our governments from ending the climate change emergency for what it is. Our governments and the media have been compromised and victimized by the biggest corporate fraud in history perpetrated by the global fossil fuel cartel.(How this happened with a multi-billion dollar global disinformation campaign and other criminal acts is described in detail here.

The big takeaway from fact number one is simple. If anyone tells you that humanity and your nation are making real and honest progress in fixing the climate change emergency, this climate information source:

1. does not understand climate change,

2. is repeating lies they have been told about climate change progress or

3. is intentionally lying to you for some undisclosed interest. 

Below is a graph with a shorter timeline for atmospheric carbon (C02.) As you can see, it has risen steadily for the last 60 years. This graph once again highlights the horrifying truth that despite what you hear in the media, your government, and every ill-informed environmental group not wanting to discourage its donors, there has been no real progress in reducing a dominant cause of the climate change emergency, which IS rising greenhouse gases.

 

 

Fact 1: Call to Action: Share this no-real climate change progress information with everyone in your network.

 

Fact 2: Because of the global fossil fuel cartel's fossil fuel disinformation campaigns and coercive tactics to delay the correct fossil fuel reductions, by 2025-2031, the severity, frequency, and scale of climate change-driven extreme weather events will increase dramatically, and far beyond where it is today!

Climate change-driven extreme weather events are defined, in part, as heatwaves, heat domes, droughts, wildfires, hurricanes, cyclones, tornados, floods, flooding, sea level rise, rain bombs, wind storms [Derechos], dust storms, wildfire smoke events, unseasonable cold spells, and other abnormal, unseasonal, or record-breaking weather related to rapidly accelerating climate change.

This sudden 2025-2031 dramatic increase in climate consequences is due to the accumulating, synergetic, and increasing atmospheric greenhouse gas pollution effects from over 200 years of fossil fuel burning and our crossing major climate change tipping points and climate feedback loops during the 2025-2031 period. 

If you remember nothing else from this section, remember this golden rule of climate change:

"The higher the average global temperature rises, the more severe, frequent, and larger the areas will be that will be affected by the many primary and secondary consequences of climate change."

 

 

 

Fact 2: Call to Action: Share this dramatic increase in climate change consequences arriving soon information with everyone in your network.

 

Fact 3: Today's legitimate, survival-preserving global fossil fuel reduction targets require all developed countries and governments (including China and India) to compel their citizens and businesses to reduce ALL fossil fuel use by about 75% by about 2025. 

The 2025 legitimate global fossil fuel reduction target is so high today because our governments wasted sixty years delaying global fossil fuel reductions when the required fossil fuel reductions could have been far more gradual and manageable. Our politicians, our governments, and the media are dead wrong when they tell you we must reduce global fossil fuel use only by 30- 40% or 50% by 2030, 2040, or 2050.

If we continue to use the global fossil fuel cartels unduly influenced and grossly underestimated global reduction targets, billions of us will die far sooner than you could imagine. If we are very lucky and our governments act today, we may still have until 2031 to reach that 75% level of global fossil fuel reduction.

 

 

Fact 3: Call to Action: Share this correct fossil fuel reduction target with everyone in your network.

 

Fact 4: Significantly missing the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and consequently crossing the last chance atmospheric carbon 450 parts per million (ppm) threshold will lead humanity into a rapidly accelerating cascade of worldwide climate change-related catastrophes.

It means:

a. Somewhere between carbon 425 and carbon. 450 ppm, we will enter the second phase of runaway global heating. (Runaway is defined as a thing running out of our control!) 

b. When carbon 450 ppm is crossed, we trigger the first mass extinction climate change tipping point.

c. When the carbon 450 ppm threshold is crossed, the average global temperature will rise quickly toward and to 3 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels.  

d. When we reach 3 degrees Celsius about preindustrial levels, we will once again cross even more climate change tipping points, activate more climate feedbacks, pass more points of no return, and intensify more of the primary and secondary climate change-driven and related consequences. Somewhere between carbon 425 and 450 ppm, we enter the climate change death spiral where humanity loses effective control of its climate stability and future for hundreds to thousands of years.

(The primary and secondary climate change-driven consequences are described here.)

e. Once we pass 3 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels, we will be unable to stop the average global temperature from rising to 4, 5, and likely 6 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels.

e. At 3 degrees Celsius and above, we will then face not just near-certain mass extinction by about 2050 but also a near-total human extinction from about 2050 to 2070. (Near-total human extinction means that, at best, we might save about thirty percent of humanity, and at worst, as little as one to two percent of humanity.) 

We are almost out of time to save ourselves and most of humanity. On February 3, 2024, the atmospheric carbon level reached carbon 426.50 parts per million (ppm) in the atmosphere. About one year ago, on February 8, 2023, our atmospheric carbon level was 420.12 ppm. 

That is a one-year total increase of six carbon ppm of toxic polluting carbon entering our atmosphere. Our post-industrial age average annual increase in atmospheric carbon was between 1 to 3 carbon ppm.

Accordingly, this one-year carbon six ppm increase is what may be the last screaming warning signal for humanity. (In a White Paper we published in 2017 called Climageddon, we forecast that humanity would eventually reach the carbon five ppm per year level, but not nearly this soon.) 

We have just entered the beginning of the generally considered irreversible second phase of runaway global heating estimated to occur sometime between 2025 and 2031. This second phase is completed when we pass carbon 425 ppm and finally cross the carbon 450 ppm threshold. (Irreversible here means that we will not be able to get the dangerous and toxic carbon and other polluting greenhouse gases out of our atmosphere for hundreds to thousands of years._

The renowned former NASA climate change scientist James Hansen warned the world that we would enter the first phase of runaway global heating when we passed the atmospheric carbon level of 386 ppm. That occurred in 2015.

Unfortunately, most people do not understand that staying below this last-chance carbon 425- 450 ppm threshold level is the absolute minimum we must do for about 50% of humanity to survive.

Even fewer people understand that the currently required 75% reduction in global fossil fuel use that we must quickly achieve is the ONLY effective remaining option to keep us from crossing the carbon 425- 450 ppm threshold and tipping point. 

If we are very fortunate, we may have as long as 2031 to do this, but only if we do not cross our last chance carbon 450 ppm threshold. (We really should not even cross the carbon 425 ppm level because it is still uncertain, but somewhere between carbon 425 ppm and crossing carbon 450 ppm is where we WILL cross into phase 2 of runaway global heating. That exact carbon ppm tipping point level is not possible to yet determine.)

Today, there is no more critical climate change target, deadline, or consequence to remember than this last chance for humanity to not pass beyond the carbon 425-450 ppm threshold because:

a. If humanity crosses the final carbon 450 ppm threshold, climate change consequences will increase dramatically in severity, frequency, and size far beyond the gradual year-by-year growth of climate change consequences we have experienced prior to crossing the carbon 425 ppm threshold. What you have seen or experienced in climate change consequences before we reached carbon 425 ppm is "a day at the beach" compared to what we will begin to experience from carbon 425 ppm and beyond. (These climate change-driven consequences are described here.)

b. If humanity crosses the final carbon 450 ppm threshold, only a tiny portion of humanity will survive.

c. After we cross carbon 450 ppm, any survivors will have to live through an unbearable climate change consequence hell and nightmare for centuries to thousands of years.

d. If we pass the carbon 450 ppm threshold, climate adaptation strategies will only slow humanity's near-total extinction process, where about 30% to as low as 2% of humanity will survive.

e. Click here for our Red Alert on the fact that on Feb 3, 2024, for the first post-industrial time ever, atmospheric carbon rose above the carbon 425 ppm threshold.

We radically reduce global fossil fuel use immediately, or most of us die far sooner and more painfully than is imaginable." Dan Hardy, climate change researcher

(This unfolding carbon 450 ppm and beyond future and climate change hell is described in full here.)

Never forget that crossing the carbon 450 ppm threshold and tipping point is the critical "point of no return" for centuries to millennia. It is the last extremely difficult but still recoverable from and painfully manageable climate change transition point.

It is the point of no return where everything that has made our climate stable and conducive enough for humanity to flourish for the previous 10,000 years will become dramatically more unstable, making survival more difficult at faster and faster rates. 

Carbon 425-450 ppm IS currently the critical tipping point where humanity triggers the physical climate change processes and consequences, which bring about its own mass extermination. Also, do not be surprised to quickly see the total cost of all climate change damage in your nation rise toward (and then eventually exceed) 5% of your nation's total Gross Domestic Product (GDP) now that we have crossed the carbon 425 ppm threshold.

(Click here to see what most likely is our best hope and remaining way to prevent humanity from crossing the carbon 450 ppm tipping point and threshold to extinction.)

Acknowledgment of the carbon 425-450 ppm last-chance threshold was first published in a Job One For Humanity white paper in 2016 and later as a book called Climageddon. In the white paper and book, passing the carbon 425-450 ppm last-chance threshold was called Phase 1 of the Climageddon Scenario. (The Illustration below is from the Climageddon white paper and book.)

Fact 4: Call to Action: Make everyone in your network aware of the carbon 450 ppm last chance threshold and tipping point.

 

Fact 5: No matter what we do now, the mass extinction of about half of humanity by about 2050 is a near-certainty---unless we stay below our last-chance carbon 450 ppm threshold.

This mass extinction is solely because our fossil fuel-compromised governments and politicians have not effectively reduced total global fossil fuel use during the last six decades when we could have gradually met the necessary reduction targets. Unavoidable mass extinction will also occur because we will cross more climate tipping points, cross more climate feedbacks, pass more climate points of no return, and we will accelerate other climate consequences. (For exactly how this mass human extinction will occur, see this page.

Our climate change-driven mass extinction process will initially be driven by worldwide crop failures, low crop yields, global soaring food prices, and mass starvation caused by climate change-driven extreme, record-breaking, and unseasonable weather, which will severely disrupt regular growing seasons. Additionally, about half of humanity will also go extinct by about 2050 because of increasing regional and national conflicts arising directly from mass climate change migrations and the rapid escalation of the primary and secondary climate change-driven consequences

 

 

Fact 5: Call to Action: Make everyone in your network aware of the carbon 450 ppm last chance threshold and tipping point.

 

Fact 6: With little remaining time left to act, the only effective way to save about 50% of humanity after 2050 from near-total extinction is for our governments to immediately enact laws forcing all developed nations (including China and India) to reach the required 75% global fossil fuel reduction target to prevent our crossing the carbon 450 ppm final threshold (sometime between 2025 -2031.)

At this point, many readers wonder if things are so bad will all of humanity will go extinct? That is not probable. There is good news here, even with such horrible previous climate news. It is highly improbable that ALL of humanity will go extinct due to accelerating climate change.

Click here for the many surprising reasons that it is highly unlikely that all of humanity will perish because of escalating climate change.

Life will go on for many who understand the climate change emergency and prepare for and manage it! This good news is explained with many illustrations here. The preceding link is one of the most important pages on our website for maintaining a rational perspective and emotional balance in the face of so much bad climate news. It has been read millions of times.)

Fact 6: Call to Action: Make everyone in your network aware of the carbon 450 ppm last chance threshold and tipping point. Push your politicians to act now!

 

The following three facts focus on the facts for "what we need to do to save humanity from climate change mass or near-total extinction."

 

Fact 7: We must bypass our cartel-disinformed, compromised, cowardly, or incompetent politicians and governments and use the new Climate Justice Now program (or something else that is effective) to radically reduce global fossil fuel use to prevent crossing the carbon 450 ppm last chance threshold.

Individual fossil fuel reduction actions alone (even if done by hundreds of millions of us) will not save about half of humanity perishing before 2050. This is fully because of 60 years of grossly negligent government and politician ineffectiveness created and enabled by the global fossil fuel cartel's powerful invisible hand controlling and disinforming our leaders.

And here is the challenge and the dilemma. 

1. Only massive government-enforced action to reduce global fossil fuel use by 75% by 2025 (maybe 2031 if we are super-lucky) can keep us from crossing the carbon 450 ppm threshold and save the post-2050 climate survivors from the even worse and almost certain near-total extinction process (occurring from about 2050 to 2070.)

2. Our politicians and governments are not making the required 2025 global fossil fuel reductions and have not done so for the last 60 years because they have been compromised by the global fossil fuel cartel's disinformation and coercive influence.

This extreme danger and failed past solution means that we must bypass our politicians and governments until they start to act in meaningful and effective ways to fix the climate change emergency. How we, as individuals, small businesses, and local community governments, effectively do this bypass is what we call the Climate Justice Now program. (This critical Climate Justice Now program is described on several pages beginning here.)

At some point, after we have globally enforced the Climate Justice Now program on the perpetrators of the climate change emergency, our misinformed, compromised, or cowardly politicians will finally begin to act at the state and national governmental levels to complete the many necessary government climate change fossil fuel reduction actions and climate restoration actions found in great detail here.

The good news is there is still a small remaining window of time until we cross the last chance carbon 450 ppm threshold and tipping point, allowing us to save much of the post-2050 remaining half of humanity, but again, only if collectively we:

1. Tell everyone you know who has been the victim of climate change consequences and has suffered financial losses about the Climate Justice Now program so they can get financial restitution and be made whole. 

When you tell anyone harmed by climate change about the Climate Justice Now program and the thousands of individual, business, and government global restitution lawsuits as described here, these lawsuits against the cartel will eventually push our politicians away from the cartel and toward protecting the lives and wellbeing of their citizens by fixing climate change.

Eventually, the Climate Justice Now program and other effective programs will push our politicians and governments to radically reduce global fossil fuel use to get close to the survival-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.

Here are the detailed climate actions our governments must enforce

Here are additional effective ways to get our politicians to force our governments to finally act on effective fools' fuel reduction targets.

2. There is still an important but lesser role for individual actions to reduce their own fossil fuel use described here. While massive individual fossil fuel reductions are now too little and too late to save about half of humanity before 2050, they still can play a significant role in what percentage of humanity survives after 2050.

(See this critical page to understand the important role that our steadily accumulating individual actions to reduce global fossil fuel use will play in a secondary role to help save humanity once humanity finally forces its politicians and government to act after humanity has hit the climate change catastrophe "rock bottom." Steadily accumulating individual actions could help make the difference in as much as 30% of humanity surviving after 2050. If individual fossil fuel reduction actions do not continue to grow significantly, as few as five percent or less of humanity could survive until about 2070.

If we do not find some practical way (like the Climate Justice Now program) to immediately get global fossil fuel use down to the correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction target level (to prevent crossing our last chance carbon 450 ppm tipping point,) there is only the slightest possibility that there will be a world that you and I would want to or could inhabit not long after 2035-2040.

 

Fact 7: Call to Action: Make everyone in your network aware of the Climate Justice Now program, especially if you have suffered climate change-related loss or damage.

 

Fact 8: Everything our cartel-disinformed governments are currently doing to fix the climate change emergency is "far too little, far too late." Therefore, humanity must also adopt key emergency preparation action steps found in our climate change Plan B.

 Because effective government global fossil fuel use reduction is not happening at anything close to fast enough on the correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, our organization strongly recommends all individuals, businesses, communities, and nations ALSO immediately begin our Climate Change Plan B.

Plan B contains many types of actions, particularly the urgently needed emergency preparations, critical adaptations, and climate change resilience-building actions for the many climate change catastrophes we can no longer avoid.

If you live in a climate change high-risk area, Plan B also might include climate change migration or relocation (or, in the government doublespeak, climate change-driven, Managed Retreat.) (Only about five percent of the world's available land areas will be climate-safer locations where people will have the best chance to live longer with the fewest and least severe consequences of climate change.)

By enacting their Plan B emergency backup and resilience-building plans before 2025 -2031, when climate change consequences will begin to rise radically, prudent individuals and organizations are ensuring they, their loved ones, businesses, local communities, and nations will have the best chance to make it through the many coming unavoidable climate change catastrophes. 

Many individuals are also joining or creating urban, suburban, rural, hybrid, or virtual climate change-resilient eco-communities to support their Plan B actions. These new, supportive, climate change-resilient communities are discussed in the video below and are discussed in detail here. We call the community-building efforts Climate-Safe Villages. 

 

 

If you want to see a series of powerful graphic timeline illustrations on how little time we have left to prepare and adapt as the climate worsens and gets more out of control, see the MIT Club of Rome's original collapse study and its four subsequent verification studies (done by outside independent research groups,) along with other more recent climate change-related collapse research, by clicking here.

The following is one of many global collapse timeline illustrations found on this essential climate change timeline summary page by clicking here. As you can see from the graph below, things start collapsing fast around 2030 about when we are projected to cross the carbon 450 ppm last chance threshold and tipping point.

 

Fact 8: Call to Action: Immediately start your climate change emergency preparation and adaptation program. Don't count on your government to care for or save you, your family, or your business. They will never have enough resources with all of the climate catastrophes that are coming.

 

Fact 9: There is still a lot of climate change good news to counterbalance government climate inaction.

Humanity can still:

a. save much of the other half of post-2050 humanity (if our governments do finally act.)

b. obtain these many worthwhile benefits in the step-by-step process of finally fixing the climate emergency. 

c. learn from the painful lessons coming from the climate catastrophe so we never let them happen again. 

d. experience many previously unattainable benefits inGreat Global Rebirth once the climate change emergency is finally fixed! 

 

 

Fact 9: Call to Action: Continually balance the bad climate change news with whatever good news you can find (like that above), or emotionally and psychologically, you probably will have it far harder than necessary.

 

Fact 10: We have no time left to be diverted or deceived by wild or unproven at-scale "new technology" Silicon Valley get-rich-quick IPOs or other government-funded climate change schemes.

There is NO viable substitute for getting close to the required radical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction target, or we will face near-total extinction from the unstoppable unfolding of the primary and secondary climate change consequences.

No miracle "new technology" (like carbon capture or geo-engineering) currently exists at the needed scale or cost efficiency to save humanity from our accelerating global heating nightmare before about half of humanity is dead by about 2050. So, hoping for some "new technology" to be discovered and save humanity at the last minute before our critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction deadline and that can be scaled up in time without horrible side effects--- is another global fossil fuel cartel disinformation campaign, personal strategy destined for failure, and a costly illusion dooming much of humanity to extinction. 

Even if there was some safe, effective, and at-scale new technology climate change and global heating solution happening sometime in the future, no new technology climate change solution exists right now that is safe, effective, and at-scale, which could prevent us from crossing our last change carbon 450 ppm mass to near-total extinction threshold and tipping point. (Click here to see why the carbon 450 ppm threshold is our last chance to prevent mass human extinction.)

The only thing at this 11th hour that can keep more post-2050 climate survivors from experiencing near-total extinction is to immediately reduce ALL global fossil fuel use and get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. It is that simple.

If you are curious about why it is highly unlikely for humanity to go totally extinct, please read this article, and on this page, you will also see there is a place for appropriate, legitimate, and side effect-safe new technologies.

If you are interested in more about the timeframes that humanity will experience climate-related and other global catastrophes, please review the timeframe illustrations on this page.

Fact 10: Call to Action: Don't be deceived by the stream of bogus climate change progress news and the "too little too late" high-tech solutions that do not prevent our passing carbon 450 ppm by 2031 or sooner. Demand immediate, honest global climate change fossil fuel reduction needed to save yourself, your family, your business, your local community, and your nation.

In Summary: 

"When you think about climate change, never forget that everything is controllable but the overwhelming forces of Mother Nature. 

Humanity can still control wars, conflicts, pandemics, economic crashes, etc. But when Mother Nature gets too much atmospheric greenhouse gas (carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide), nothing under human control (like geoengineering) will slow her rage in time to save most of us. Mother Nature will, inevitably and painfully, reestablish a new living balance for all of Earth's life." Dan Hardy

The relative stability of the climate of your younger memories is gone forever. Every day, as humanity burns more fossil fuels (which adds even more greenhouse gas pollution to our atmosphere), we will continue to break new records and make today's existing climate change problems and weather much worse for our future and the future of our children and future generations. 

Please keep in mind:

 A. Unless one has the right target for the cause of a problem, it is unlikely one will be able to solve that problem. We have not solved the climate change problem for 60 years because we are not dealing with the real cause of the problem, the global fossil fuel cartel.

The only way to stop the cartel and finally fix climate change is to:

1. hold the cartel financially responsible for the many losses and damages caused by their products and actions. Click here for information on a detailed now program for how to get financial restitution to the victims of climate change.

2. Hold the senior executives of the cartel and the marketing public relations and lobbying firms responsible for any criminal acts committed. We are talking about the most senior C-suite executives. (We are not talking about lower-level managers or employees of fossil fuel companies and their enabling corporations. The most senior, highest-paid executives are making the critical decisions destroying humanity and our environment of the cartel and its enabling corporations.)

The real cause and blame for all of the current pain, death, loss, and damage caused by climate change is the global fossil fuel cartel. Until we focus on the fossil fuel cartel as the correct and primary, past and ongoing cause of climate change and take all the profit out of their wrongdoing, the climate change emergency will only get worse, resulting in mass extinction and social chaos.

Don't let the billions of dollars and decades of fossil fuel cartel climate change disinformation and criminal actions win! Help disempower the cartel also with the following critical climate change loss and damage financial restitution action.

If you or someone you know has experienced any damages to your home, business, or farm from climate change-related consequences, you (or they) must begin a lawsuit against all related parties ASAP. The good news is that it is now far easier to do than ever before. 

The number of court cases focused on the global climate change crisis and its consequent damages has doubled since 2015, bringing the total number to over 2,000 in over 28 countries, according to a report led by European researchers last year. More than two dozen US cities and states are suing big oil (described here), alleging the fossil fuel industry knew for decades about the dangers of burning coal, oil, and gas and actively hid that information from consumers and investors. 

If you have just experienced a climate change-related extreme weather event involving any heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, hurricanes and cyclones, flooding, rain bombs, wind storms (Derechos), dust storms, wildfire smoke events, unseasonable cold spells, and abnormal unseasonal weather and, you need to immediately begin the process for financial recovery and restitution by reading this page as soon as possible.

B. At least half of humanity has already been condemned to horrible suffering and death because the global fossil fuel cartel has secretly hidden, distorted, manipulated, and underestimated the actual facts and dangers of the climate change emergency for more than 60 years from our governments and the media. Because of the fossil fuel cartel's behind-the-scenes manipulation of climate change facts, our governments, politicians, and media have kept the world's citizens in the dark about the true nature and urgency of the climate change threat. Consequently, our governments, politicians, and media have not mobilized the essential public understanding, support, or action to fix the escalating climate change emergency. 

It is not accidental that our governments and politicians have utterly failed for 60 years to fix what truly is humanity's greatest escalating threat (other than immediate global thermonuclear war.) To protect their trillions in profits, the global fossil fuel cartel has deliberately been very busy using their every asset to make it impossible for the world's population to grasp the actual facts about our accelerating climate change extinction emergency. (Click here for the full article detailing 60 years of billions of dollars in global fossil fuel disinformation and other criminal activity.)

C. Because of our government's 60 years of previous ineffective climate change actions, the half of humanity that will perish by about 2050 will mainly and unjustly occur in poorer third-world countries, which did not create the majority of the fossil fuel greenhouse gas air pollution.

D. Unless our global governments act to get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, the future of climate change is simple. Our current record-breaking and extreme weather will continue to break more records and will suddenly get far more extreme from 2025-about 2031 and then rapidly worsen from there.

E. The climate change emergency will no longer affect only your children or grandchildren. If you are a senior citizen living in many parts of the world, you are already experiencing the predicted consequences of climate change. As a senior citizen, you can no longer escape what we leave as a bitter climate legacy for our children and grandchildren. From now until the government acts, you, with everyone else, will be experiencing the steady intensification of many of the worst consequences of climate change. 

F. Over the following decades, humanity is headed into an extraordinarily dangerous transitional period. However, wise individuals and businesses with access to uncensored climate information have already begun their Plan B preparations and adaptations to ensure that they can save and salvage as much of their families, businesses, and our collective future as possible. 

G. Many terrible and unavoidable consequences of climate change are already out of our control. All we can do now is vote, prepare, adapt, reduce our personal fossil fuel use, and build climate change-resilient And ClimateSafe communities while doing everything we can to force our governments to reduce global fossil fuel use. These are the save and salvage climate change "good deeds" still under our control where we can still do as much climate change good as possible. 

(Click here to see when we think humanity will finally be successful in getting our politicians and governments to act effectively to fix the climate change extinction emergency.)

H. By about 2035, it is estimated that 50-70 million people from Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and other parts of the world will try to enter the United States and Canada illegally. This mass migration will be because of the consequences of climate change, primarily affecting stable food production. The consequences of accelerating climate change will make living in their countries impossible.

Because climate change consequences severely affect stable food production, it will make a living in their own countries impossible to survive in; it is estimated that about 50-70 million people will try to enter the European Union and the Scandinavian countries from Africa, the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. Similar numbers of climate migrants from Southern China and Southeast Asia will attempt to enter southern Russia and Ukraine.

"Migrate of die" climate migrants (climagees) seeking climate asylum mainly from the developed countries responsible for the climate change emergency near or above the 45th parallel North will continue to be an unsolvable problem for the world until our governments make the radical fossil fuel cuts needed to reverse accelerating climate change consequences.

I. We have a horrible climate change dilemma. If we do not get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, about 50% of humanity will perish before 2050 because of 60 years of government inaction on the emergency. If we do get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, 50% of humanity will still perish by 2050 because of Garret's Climate Change Dilemma. The good news is that if we do get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel targets, at least some of humanity, as much as 30%, will survive from 2050 to 2070 and beyond.

J. A wise way to think about the climate change risks and threats delineated in the above article is to think as follows:

1. Between 2025 and 2031, there will be a dramatic and dangerous increase in the severity, frequency, and size of areas affected by climate change consequences, and these dramatic consequence increases will continue unabated for decades. The worst climate change consequences are not beginning around 2060-2100, as you are currently being told.

2. Prepare and adapt now! Do not wait until 5, 10, 20, or more years from now.

 

K. As of this date, our think tank predicts massive and dramatically increasing climate change-driven catastrophes from 2025-2031. These extreme weather catastrophes will result in widespread food production collapse and social system-related collapses in weaker nations. 

Because of what is arriving soon and will continue to worsen from 2031-2050, we have entered a time when emergency preparation and adaptation for these climate catastrophes is mandatory for survivalConsequently, our research team and many of our volunteers as individuals have transferred more of their work, free time, and resources over to:

1. preparation, adaptation, and resilience-building actions for their families.

2. helping to forward the much larger climate change preparation and adaptation actions of the worldwide collaboration called Climatesafe Villages. And,

3. focusing on the Climate Justice Now program because we believe it has a reasonable chance to help humanity get to the minimum global fossil fuel reductions that will at least save 30% to, at worst, 2% of humanity.

As of this date, our climate research team also now believes that:

a. it is so highly unlikely that humanity will make the minimal critical level of global fossil fuel use reductions in time that we will not be able to save at least 50% of humanity. (Click here to see the 30 powerful reasons why humanity will not act in time.)

b. only two remaining actions have any realistic hope of getting humanity to meet the minimal required global fossil fuel reductions. (These minimal required reductions are needed to keep humanity from crossing beyond the carbon 450 ppm last-chance threshold where only about 30% to 2% of humanity survives.)

The two actions that have any reasonable chance of getting global fossil use under control are:

1. The rapid global expansion of the Climate Justice Now program. And,

2. The ongoing mass die-off of much of humanity, which paradoxically will help save the rest of humanity. (Please see this amazing article which explains how Mother Nature will do what our politicians and governments could not or would not do. Most individuals are stunned as they read the link that explains how Mother Nature, along with a few critical actions from humanity, saves humanity from itself.)

We believe that it will most probably be the combination of the two above actions that eventually save a small portion of humanity.

L. Please take the additional time to read about the scope, scale, and facts of the accelerating climate change emergency, including its catastrophic consequences and timetables linked below. This information will profoundly change how prudent individuals plan their lives and future.

The widely accepted Prudent Avoidance Principle is a precautionary principle in risk management. It states that reasonable efforts to minimize potential risks should be taken when the actual magnitude of the risks is unknown. There are many knowns (discussed above) and many unknowns concerning our future of the climate change emergency. Isn't it about time that our governments start taking effective, reasonable actions to minimize not only the known risks but also our serious and unknown climate change risks?

By widely sharing this document person-to-person, you personally help neutralize the cartel's well-funded climate change disinformation campaigns. 

This knowledge, once widely shared, will help illuminate the true urgency of our runaway global heating extinction emergency. Moreover, understanding the true urgency of the global heating emergency will eventually create the necessary public demand to get our politicians to begin a government-enforced global fossil fuel reduction plan that will work. 

The worst consequences of the runaway global heating extinction emergency will not be prevented or lessened unless:

1. You do your part to help educate others about today's uncensored climate facts before it is too late. 

2. We get our politicians to act. Click here for how to do that.

3. You get active on the many scalable solutions in the Job One for Humanity Plan B.
