A Difficult Introduction to the New Global Warming Extinction Reality
"You cannot be called an alarmist if there really is something to be alarmed about." Unknown
Using the well-researched materials on this website and from other reliable climate sources, many of our staff, members and visitors have already concluded (or will eventually find,) that unless we make the required massive 2025 global fossil fuel use reduction targets, a major portion of humanity is on its way to immense suffering and extinction unfolding within their lifetimes. They also are at least partially aware that this imminent mass extinction threat comes from the accelerating global warming emergency crashing directly into and worsening these six other major global crises currently facing humanity.
Many (if not most) of our staff, members, and visitors have realized the battle to prevent a global warming-caused mass extinction event from unfolding within our lifetimes has already been lost! This lost battle is due to wasting the last 35 years of warnings and the extremely high probability that we will be unable to meet the required 2025 global fossil fuel use reduction targets. Worse yet, if we do not come at least, very close to reaching the 2025 global fossil fuel use reduction targets total extinction, and the end of civilization is our most likely long-term future.
If you still believe the battle to prevent a global warming-caused mass extinction event within our lifetimes is realistically possible, please read the following two links in the order given. You will discover why the Job One organization, as well as most of our staff, members, and visitors, have now been forced to deal with the bitter new reality of a global warming-caused mass extinction event accordingly.
But far more importantly, because of the above new global warming extinction reality, there is a critical new battle "to slow down global warming enough so we can save and salvage what we can, while we still have time and hopefully we can still somehow prevent total extinction." This is our new battle, which is still potentially achievable, but only if it is fully embraced and acted upon immediately!
We need to embrace this new prevent total extinction battle cry today so that we have enough time to prepare and adapt to what is coming. Here is the good news!
If we can slow global warming down to at least, come close to the 2025 global fossil fuel use reduction targets:
a. more individuals will survive longer and more comfortably and,
b. some part of humanity and our civilization may continue to exist.
Because of the acceleration of the global warming extinction emergency, our organization was forced to update its mission on Jan 3, 2020. We have changed from our former mission which was:
"To help society prevent a global warming-caused total extinction event."
To our new mission which is:
"To help the world adapt to an unavoidable, ongoing global warming-caused mass extinction event while simultaneously, doing everything we can to prevent an even worse total extinction event."
This new mission statement means that we also updated Job One for Humanity global warming adaptation plan to:
a. First, help individuals understand we are already facing an unavoidable global warming-caused human, animal, and biological species mass extinction event already unfolding and reaching its peak over the next 30-50 years. At best, we can slow it down and adapt to it if we act quickly and wisely!
We will help individuals to achieve the above two goals by assisting them in understanding what they can do:
1. to adapt, prepare, and protect themselves, their families, and their businesses from the escalating consequences of the global warming extinction emergency.
2. to help slow down the unfolding of this unfolding mass extinction event. This can only be achieved by coming very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel use reduction targets!
b. Secondly, help individuals understand we are also facing a global warming-caused human, animal, and biological species total extinction event beginning to unfold in about 50-70 years. This can only be avoided with a decent probability of success by coming very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel use reduction targets!
c. Thirdly, offer tools and information to help individuals deal with and process the tremendous emotions of anger, anxiety, and depression once they fully realize the already unfolding extinction emergency and dilemma that we have created for ourselves. (See this link for more on this.) And,
d. Lastly, however, and whenever we get through this extinction emergency, if we get through it, help build a smarter, better, and more equitable world. We will also help people see that this greatest of all emergencies in human history is also the greatest of all opportunities for whoever can and will survive it. (See this link for all of the good that can still come out of this catastrophic situation.)
The painful truth we must now all face is that we must find a way to slow down global warming enough by getting sufficiently close to the 2025 global fossil fuel use reduction targets fast enough to have enough time for humanity to prepare and adapt to what is coming. We must never lose sight of the fact that if we get very close to reaching the 2025 targets, more of humanity will survive longer and more comfortably through our escalating mass extinction event and that we can still prevent a total extinction event so that some of humanity and civilization might survive.
All of the above means that today is the day to begin your Plan B to adapt as best you can and to save and salvage whatever you can while you still have the time to do so.
(Please note: In its most abbreviated form on our website, we shorten our new mission statement to the slogan; To Adapt to Global Warming Extinction.)
The Full Version of Our Mission Statement
The following expanded mission action steps are done in the given order (or simultaneously if volunteers and financial resources allow.)
Our primary mission actions:
A. Help individuals adapt to and prepare for living in a world where as much as 70-90+ percent of the human population will suffer then die from crop failures, starvation, resource shortage wars, and the many other horrible global warming consequences within our lifetimes while working to prevent total extinction and run-away global warming.
At this point, we have to face the fact that all we may be able to do in response to our accelerating global warming is to save and salvage whatever we can to prevent the complete extinction of humanity and the end of civilization. (Information on how to prepare and adapt so more of us live longer and suffer less is contained in Part 1 of the Job One Plan and Part 2 of the Job One Plan.)
B. Do what we can to support a government-driven migration, infrastructure transfer, and emergency backup a "Plan B" for the world.
We need to begin to save, salvage, and protect whatever we can of humanity, civilization and animal and biological diversity by transferring as much of them as is possible to global warming safer zones. We need to put a "Plan BP into place immediately. Click here to see our current Plan B. (Also see Part 3 of the Job One Plan in Section 2 for details on these government-driven actions. See the heading called, "How to Prevent Mass Human Extinction: The World's Emergency Backup Plan." This action is a secondary action because Job One's few resources do not give us much influence in this area.)
C. Help people move through anger, anxiety, and depression once they realize that the extinction emergency we have created for ourselves is real and, our it is current global warming reality.
We provide healing and encouraging information for processing global warming's difficult emotions, such as found on this page. Where staffing and resources allow, we also promote group discussion sessions in different locations for the same purpose.
Most importantly, we have learned that the fastest healing occurs after one accepts the correct facts as they are and then begins the process of adapting to those facts as best as is possible. How to best adapt to our current emergency can quickly occur once one gets active on the proven Job One For Humanity Plan for managing, slowing, and surviving the coming global warming consequences.
D. Help individuals or groups create sustainable new eco-communities in global warming-safe locations so some of humanity and civilization survives.
This would help ensure that enough of these new eco-communities are established and prepared enough to survive the escalating onslaught of an unavoidable chain of global warming catastrophes.
These experimental eco-communities will also be essential to help carry forward the survival of humanity, human culture, and civilization. Please see the Universe Community sections of our sister website for the information on why these new eco-communities are essential to our future. You will also find the information you will need to create a sustainable eco-community in a global warming-safe zone.
E. (If volunteers and resources allow.) To slow down the global warming emergency, get governments, NGOs and environmental groups need to be educated that they need to stop using the United Nation's incorrect global fossil fuel targets and deadlines and get them to start using the correct 2025 targets to prevent possible total extinction.
The UN is still using the incorrect global fossil fuel reduction targets and deadlines created by their own Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the IPCC.) (The IPCC is considered the world's leading authority on global warming and what should be done about climate change.)
IPCC's current incorrect target and deadlines for global fossil fuel reduction are as follows; we need to make a 40% reduction in total global fossil fuel use by 2030 and then reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The colossal danger with the IPCC's wrong targets is, these wrong deadlines and targets are now being used to set the correctional global warming strategies for the world's governments, NGOs and largest non-profit environmental groups.
These wrong targets make it impossible to come close to reaching the 2025 legitimate targets because our governments, NGOs and environmental groups are aiming at the wrong target destinations and deadlines. Click here to read the simple science for what makes the IPCC's current global fossil fuel reduction targets and deadlines so dangerously wrong!
The IPPC's current targets and deadlines mentioned above is entirely inadequate and will not save us from a global warming-caused mass extinction event in time. Worse yet, when you have incorrect global fossil fuel reduction targets and deadlines forwarded by recognized authorities, it thwarts and delays humanity's ability to understand or execute the correct fossil fuel reduction targets.
Ironically, if we cannot get the world's governments, NGO's and environmental groups to promote the correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and deadlines, realistically, how likely is it that we will ever achieve the life-critical 2025 reductions? If we can slow down the occurrence of the predicted mass extinction event by somehow getting close to meeting the 2025 targets, we will, at least, have more time to prepare for, adapt to or migrate as needed. (For the specific government-driven actions need to be done to at least come close to reaching the 2025 targets see Part 3 of the Job One Plan.
F. (If volunteers and resources allow.) Directly motivate our politicians (and their governments) to slow down global warming enough to allow us more time to prepare and adapt so we can save and salvage more of humanity and civilization for a bit longer. These actions could also help prevent total extinction from run-a-way global warming. (Job One is primarily a global warming research analysis and global warming solutions-engineering organization.)
This is done by getting very close to the last chance 2025 targets. To get close to the 2025 targets, our politicians have to create and enforce new global fossil fuel reduction laws quickly. (See Parts three and Part four of the Job One plan for the government-driven actions needed to do this. This action is a secondary action because Job One's few resources do not give us much political influence.)
G. Once (or if) we have survived this extinction emergency and we have learned the painful lessons it will teach us, Job One and the new eco-communities mentioned above, will promote a new survival-proven understanding of equitable and sustainable living to all the mass extinction event remaining survivors.
These new eco-communities also will help transform the trauma and unthinkable losses of the coming Great Collapse and Great Die-off into a springboard for the Great Rebuilding and for a better-informed more sustainable and equitable world.
This temporary evolutionary regression and later Great Rebuilding experience described above also will create a better and more equitable world for ALL that could thrive for hundreds of more generations. If the Great Collapse and Great Die-off is inevitable because we continue to refuse to alter our unsustainable fossil fuel and other behaviors, then at least, the Great Collapse and Great Die-Off can be used as a launching pad for a new, better beginning for those parts of humanity that survive. (Click here to learn about that the new ideas of a Sustainable Prosperity for all.)
Our Best Hope to prevent total extinction
The best news of the Job One for Humanity mission is that our crossing of the carbon 600 parts per million (ppm,) extinction-level tipping point can still be slowed down just enough so that some smaller portion of humanity can still survive. This life-critical slowing can only be achieved by immediately enacting the greatest government-driven mass mobilization of our civilization's resources toward the singular goal of radically cutting global fossil fuel use to at least, get very close to the 2025 targets. (See Job One Plan, Part 3.)
If we fail to prevent crossing the carbon 600 ppm level we will enter the beginning phases of run-away global warming!
Unfortunately, most of our world is presently locked into some form of global warming denial, global warming ignorance or intentional deception. Most of the world isn't even close to realizing how bad global warming already is nor, how bad it's going to get.
Most of the world still believes the distorted and incorrect IPCC global fossil fuel reduction targets and deadlines which will fast track us to global catastrophe and Climageddon! Most of the world also has no idea things are going to get very rough far sooner than anyone's telling us (except for this organization.)
Because of the rapidly unfolding global warming mass extinction scenario, our collective job one is first to prepare ourselves, our families and our businesses for what is coming. Our second job is to do our best to slow down global warming enough so that a least a few of us survive. Our third job is to enlighten those few brave and bright individuals who also will soon see, feel, or understand what is coming.
The future will not be easy.
Our world will be changing dramatically in the following decades.
We at Job One for Humanity will do our best to help inform and support those who are ready to adapt to and navigate this uncertain and dangerous future which has now become a banquet of unavoidable and, unthinkable consequences.
How we will achieve our mission, Part 1
Within another 3-6 years of 2019, we will, unfortunately, cross the carbon 425-450 parts per million (ppm) climate cliff. This is the first critical extinction-evoking global warming tipping point. This climate cliff will occur without fail when we miss or do not come very close to reaching the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
It is a matter of simple math and physics. The cycle of more fossil fuel carbon going into the atmosphere equals more heat, which equals continually escalating global warming consequences. (Click here to learn about those escalating consequences.)
When that happens, we will rapidly pass the next two extinction-evoking carbon 500 and 600 ppm tipping points with all of their additional unthinkable and unavoidable consequences.
Logically, what our organization must now do is to promote actions that will help us survive the consequences of crossing those three extinction-evoking tipping points and the coming mass human, animal, and biological extinction event for as long as is possible. The way some of us will survive this traumatic outcome is for Job One for Humanity to successfully achieve the following additional objectives:
a. warn society they must start adapting now through our strategy of "shock and challenge" about the current out-of-control state of global warming (for as long as the next 30-50 years.) Our governments must start adapting to and preparing for what is coming and immediately reduce fossil fuel use to achieve or come very close to the 2025 targets. ("Shock and challenge" is a process where we state something critical about global warming, and then we challenge individuals to prove it wrong.)
b. shock our politicians awake to the global warming extinction emergency and the new threat of total extinction with the scientific evidence that global warming is far, far worse than they have been told. (As volunteers and resources allow.)
c. promote the highest level of national and international cooperation and mass mobilization in human history to combat global warming. We either cooperate at the highest levels and scale, or most of us will eventually die together. If we die together, it will be in an ever-worsening meltdown of global warming consequences and crossed tipping points. (As volunteers and resources allow.)
d. respectfully disrupt any politicians, individuals, or organizations that do not educate or create effective policies and programs about the real global warming extinction emergency. This policy of disruption is especially valid for those individuals or organizations that present false or misleading information as to the accurate targets and deadlines needed for global fossil fuel reduction. (After focusing on politicians, this disruption would also include disrupting some of the world's most prestigious environmental organizations. If we can't get the world's leading environmental organizations working as one focusing on the correct fossil fuel reduction targets and deadlines, there is scant hope that humanity will make the correct fossil fuel reduction targets and survive. (Click here to see our respectful disruption policy.) (As volunteers and resources allow.)
e. provide individuals with practical new strategies designed to help them recover from the damages of global warming-aggravated disasters both physically and financially. We have created a Global Warming Disaster Preparation, Recovery, Relocation, and Migration Information Center. (As volunteers and resources allow.)
f. work to restore the carbon ppm level in the atmosphere (now at about carbon 414 ppm,) back to its original preindustrial human-safe level of about carbon 250 to 270 parts per million. This return to carbon 250-270 ppm is only possible if we can meet or get very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. and then begin a secondary program to make the additional global fossil fuel reductions to bring atmospheric carbon levels all the way back down to carbon 250-270. (As volunteers and resources allow.)
g. Utilize this great emergency as a great opportunity to build a smarter, better world however and whenever we get through this extinction emergency. (See this link for all the good that can still come out of our current horrible global warming situation.)
How we will achieve our mission, part 2
- We use the best and most up-to-date climate science available.
- We work toward achieving our mission in a way that embodies cooperation, empathy, and justice.
- We promote honesty and realistic global warming hopes. That hope is, there is a real opportunity for a part of humanity and civilization to survive, learn from our mistakes and build a much better and more equitable world. But this new world is ONLY possible if, we cooperate and prevent or long delay crossing the carbon of the carbon 600 ppm extinction-level tipping point.
- We vigorously promote that there is no other way to survive the total extinction emergency unless we come together immediately and work together. (As one human family, we must reach or come very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction goals.)
- We promote a global mass mobilization and governmental actions for radically increasing green energy generation. This mass mobilization will not solve the fossil fuel problem, but it will help slow down the coming consequences a bit more to save more individuals.
- We promote doing what is deadline and effectiveness prioritized, and only in the proper sequence to save as much of humanity and civilization as we can. (See the Job One Plan here.)
- We provide honest global warming consequence prediction timetables and a new model called the Climageddon Scenario. (This is critical and continually updated prediction information will keep you from being surprised so that you have adequate time to prepare for and better adapt to the unavoidable coming consequences.
- We use the new Job One Plan to help individuals slow and lessen what is now unavoidable, cope with the emotional implications of out of control global warming, create emergency preparedness, and effectively adapt as long as we can for a highly uncertain future.
- We will do everything we can to get every organization, business, or nation to promote reaching the 2025 targets and the sacrifices we must now make.
- We foster tapping into your deepest philosophical and spiritual reserves. These foundations will help you endure, make sense of and transform the tremendous suffering and sacrifice ahead of us to the betterment of humanity and future generations.
- We promote utilizing this unprecedented, urgent and challenging situation to enhance and expand the meaning and purpose of our lives, and to help us develop and broaden our character.
- We promote maintaining as positive perspective throughout all of the coming hardships. Click here to see a summary of the 16 surprise positive perspectives on things that can happen in this emergency that might help you sustain a positive outlook.
- We actively promote enjoying your life today as fully as is possible. This policy is because there are no guarantees and we may not succeed. Today may be the best it will ever be for a long time.
- We practice that there is no one to blame for this out of control global warming extinction emergency. For the last three decades, our current government systems have so protected or incentivized fossil fuel use as well as ever-increasing commercialism and waste, that curtailing it was all but impossible. Additionally, the climate is so complex that only a handful of individuals had the intellectual bandwidth and the climate expertise to fully grasp how global warming could become out of control so fast. Those few individuals who knew did not have sufficient governmental influence to prevent global warming from going out of control. The last thing we need to do in this extinction emergency is to polarize and waste resources in energy-depleting blame.
The substeps to achieving our full mission for individuals are:
- to help individuals understand and then predict and adapt to the next wave of global warming-aggravated disasters that almost all of us will inevitably experience. We will provide updated warning signs. Click here for that information.
- to educate individuals and groups on how to create lifestyles and livelihoods of real Sustainable Prosperity. This sustainability, along with crucial primary collective actions by our governments will, in turn, also help slow and lessen the speed of this rapidly unfolding catastrophe.
Another helpful and healing perspective on the global warming extinction emergency
Many individuals using this website also have come to see that humanity has entered a temporary evolutionary regression period as it has done so many times in the past. During this temporary regression, life as we usually know it will get worse for a while before it gets better.
In this period of temporary regression, humanity will learn the necessary hard new lessons about the real price of fossil fuel pollution, poor international cooperation, and the importance of maintaining healthy ecological systems. The great news here during this temporary regression is that if we are smart and work together, we can still have full, meaningful and enjoyable lives while we work to restore the critical climate balance to our life-supporting Earth systems and build a better world for when we make it thought this mess.
Now that you know more about our mission, become a Job One member and supporter. Our information will be critical to protecting yourself, your family, and future generations.

The Painful "Whys" Behind the Urgency of Our Mission
Our members and web visitors appreciate Job One because we tell the hard truths and we treat them with respect as adults. Those harsh new facts are:
a. Global warming extinction is no longer a remote possibility coming sometime after 2100 as we been lulled into believing by our government's inaction and the false and incomplete climate analysis by the IPCC. A massive human, animal, and biological extinction event will be arriving in many areas of the world as soon as the next 30 to 50 years. Again, this is because it is highly improbable we will make or even get close to the required 2025 radical global fossil fuel cuts!
b. We are already in an undeclared global warming extinction emergency. (Click here to see why.)
d. Many of global warming's very worst consequences are already unavoidable no matter what we do right now!
e. A global warming-caused mass extinction event and die-off will be unfolding and worsening over the next 30-50 years if we miss coming very close to the 2025 targets as it now appears we wil do.
f. If we do not come very close to the 2025 targets we will be also facing a total extinction event.
In Summary, some of humanity may survive by achieving achieve the following objectives:
A. Ensure the world meets (or gets very close to,) meeting the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. by getting our politicians to pass and enforce the necessary laws. This will give us the time we need to prepare and adapt. (See Job One Plan Part 3 for everything our governments must do to reach the survival-critical 2025 targets.)
B. Educate the world about how to execute an individual, business or national emergency backup "Plan B."
C. Continue to present an accurate, rational but very limited hope for humanity's future wherever we offer painful facts about our current global warming extinction emergency. This rational hope is solidly based on what is still possible and practical to do. It includes presenting the great opportunity this great emergency presents, which is to build a smarter, better world for whoever might survive! And if we have the resources,
D. Educate larger and better-funded, non-profit organizations with vastly more influence than Job One. Get these organizations to use their greater influence get our politicians to meet or get very close to the critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. (Job One is a small, non-profit organization with very limited reach and resources.)
