We are a non-profit organization. Part of our mission is to preserve and protect the well-being of all visitors and members. Our rules exist solely to preserve and protect that common well-being.
The Job One For Humanity online and offline rules cover all areas of our website, our website add-on apps, or stand-alone apps (like BaseCamp) used by our staff, the public, volunteers, members, subscribers, or visitors, either in online or offline actions. These rules also cover our online Virtual Eco-community.
This rules page contains several sections:
a. Why do we have these rules?
b. Online communication, civility, and security rules,
c. Volunteer rules and important volunteer legal factors,
d. Copyright rules,
e. Submissions of materials to Job One for Humanity rules.
Please review our rules as soon as possible. If you feel someone has violated our online or offline safety, communication civility, or security rules, contact us at ([email protected]). Be sure to copy the violation and any information on the poster in your rules violation email.
Repeatedly violating our online or offline rules can result in being banned or blocked from our website and organization.
The support team at Job One for Humanity is the final authority on determining if someone has violated a rule and what the punishment should be. If the offense is severe enough, the support team may send warnings as needed or act by banning or blocking without them. These online rules will be amended or added to as necessary.
- Why these online and offline rules
Having clear and open rules is essential for productive and healthy relationships. Having clear rules also helps protect and preserve civility, safety, and security, which also is essential for productive and healthy relationships.
Secondarily, and unfortunately, understanding our rules and why we have them is also critical so that the urgent and time-critical missions of our nonprofit organizations (JobOne for Humanity and ClimateSafe Villages) can grow and thrive and not be intentionally thwarted or sabotaged by climate change deniers, trolls, troublemakers, mentally unstable individuals, fake volunteers, anti-social individuals, or individuals or organizations acting as agent provocateurs. (These would be individuals or organizations with bad intentions toward our climate change consequence victim support or remedial mission or who are paid and working for hidden financial interests like the global fossil fuel cartel and its related industries.)
The global fossil fuel industry has the most to lose once people understand how dire the climate emergency really is, and they demand their politicians enforce the radical global fossil fuel reductions now required.
Do not underestimate the lengths that multinational fossil fuel cartel will go to protect its massive profits. It is the world's largest single industry, producing about 1/3 of the Earth's total gross domestic product, about $28 trillion annually. It is VERY powerful, and they are exceedingly unhappy with the independent and unpoliticized Job One for Humanity climate change think tank publishing of uncensored climate change research and analysis, not to mention publishing our honest global warming consequence prediction timetables and correct global fossil fuel reduction targets, found here.
Unfortunately, we already have dealt with numerous climate change deniers, trolls, and even several fake volunteers and agent provocateurs representing hidden interests attempting to infiltrate our organization as "volunteers" to harm our mission's progress or our organization's reputation and credibility.
The rules below will help keep you and our organization and its online tools civil, safe, and secure. They will also do a lot to prevent our mission from being hijacked, infiltrated, or harmed by climate deniers, trolls, fake volunteers, or paid agent provocateurs.
Please do your part to help keep our community civil, safe, and secure by reporting violations of our civility, safety, and security rules to ([email protected]).
As you read our rules, please remember that we are a non-profit organization. Part of our mission is to preserve and protect the well-being of all visitors and members. Our rules exist solely to preserve and protect that common well-being.
Because of our mission's urgency and time-critical nature, we will warn you once about not following our online and offline rules. For your first offense, we will temporarily bar you from our services until in writing, you apologize for your action, verify you have read all our on and offline rules, and promise you will not violate them again.

- Volunteer Rules
Here is our Critical Legal information for ALL Job One for Humanity volunteers!
Getting specific legal issues out in the open and out of the way is essential for a productive and healthy relationship.
Understanding the following is necessary so that our organization can grow and thrive and not be thwarted or sabotaged by fake volunteers or individuals or organizations acting as agent provocateurs who have either bad intentions toward our resolving climate change mission or are working for the hidden financial interests of the global fossil fuel conglomerate. (The global fossil fuel conglomerate is the largest industry, producing about 1/3 of the Earth's total gross domestic product, about $28 trillion a year. They are very, very powerful, and they are very unhappy with Job One publishing uncensored and unp[olitized climate change research and analysis, not to mention the required and honest global fossil fuel reduction targets found here.
Unfortunately, we have already dealt with several fake volunteers and agent provocateurs representing hidden interests attempting to infiltrate our organization as "volunteers" to harm our mission or our organization's reputation and credibility.
The clear legal boundaries you find below keep our organization and mission from being infiltrated by fake volunteers, or thwarted by agent provocateurs or others seeking to act in a way to harm the organization, moving its mission forward.
Our logo and website materials: How to correctly use and copy materials on our website for your local use
As an independent volunteer, in your efforts to help educate others, you may use (or restate) all of the non-members-only climate and runaway global heating materials you find on our website. (You may not copy and distribute anything you find in the Members section of our website.) However, we strongly recommend that you avoid rephrasing the science content of our web pages. Climate science is full of complexities and nuances that are easily misunderstood or not seen.
If you choose to restate or create your own climate or other materials using our materials, please always list Job One for Humanity as the source material and create a link back to the Job One for Humanity original page materials that you are using or rewriting! This way, people will ask us technical questions about the science, and they can see our linked references and methodology.
In any independent climate videos or other written materials you may produce, always say that the information in your videos or writings represents your humble opinion! In the US (and many developed countries,) as long as something is clearly labeled as your personal opinion, you cannot be successfully sued for saying any opinion or sharing any opinion. (IMHO, at the bottom of articles or videos is short for "in my humble opinion.")
Please also note that our educational materials are not meant for adolescents under 13 years old because of their serious and adult nature. Please allow children under 13 to be children and do not force them to deal with such an upsetting adult matter.
Never use our Job One for Humanity name or logo on anything you independently produce or alter and publish that is also found on our website that is not our unaltered authentic website materials with a link to our original web page without our prior written permission!
Volunteers are not legal agents or executives of Job One for Humanity
Job One for Humanity has no employees, but we have many worldwide independent, self-organizing volunteers forwarding our climate and runaway global heating analysis and remedial plans. Because you operate completely independently of our organization, please do not ever represent yourself as our legal agent or representative unless we have given you this special legal status from us in writing!
You do not make or change Job One for Humanity's organizational policy
As an independent, self-organizing volunteer, you are not authorized agents or legal representatives of the Job One for Humanity Organization for creating, altering, or publishing Job One policies. Only our board of directors may make policy or position statements, take public actions, or make public statements that officially represent our research or non-profit organization.
You choose your own actions
Job One for Humanity does not have any form of a central command center that either directs, orders, or selects your or any volunteer's independent projects. As a volunteer, only you choose, plan, and execute your projects to help resolve the runaway global heating extinction emergency. We may answer your climate questions or offer moral support for actions in alignment with our policies and the climate facts, but we will never tell you what to do or say.
You are solely responsible for materials you may submit or post on our website
Remember that Job One for Humanity acts as a climate change information distribution and sharing hub similar to Facebook, Reddit, Google Groups, etc. Accordingly, independent individuals and volunteers post their information and comments on our climate information distribution hub in the blog, discussion, or project management forums, our comments fields, and other areas.

In that case, YOU are responsible for ensuring that these materials do not contain ANY copyrighted materials you do not own!

You recognize that independent individuals who are not legal agents of Job One for Humanity regularly post information, articles, messages, and comments in numerous places on our climate change information distribution hub. If someone has a copyright issue with something you post, those copyright holders will be directed to contact the independent poster or creator of those materials directly.
Job One for Humanity is not liable for any postings in its comments areas, blogs, and message area made by independent individuals. Job One for Humanity volunteers are not legal agents of Job One for Humanity.

It is a criminal offense to steal or distribute any confidential information you may have had access to while volunteering at Job One for Humanity unless fully authorized by our organization in writing.
Illegal or violent actions
And finally, never do anything illegal or violent. We NEVER endorse or support ANY illegal or violent activity. If you engage in any unlawful or violent activity because you are an independent volunteer it will be you and not us that could (or will be) held legally responsible by local authorities for your actions.
Our organization is absolutely against all physical violence or violent revolution. We only endorse peaceful protest and peaceful civil disobedience that would make Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, and Nelson Mandela proud.
