"You cannot be called an alarmist if there really is something to be alarmed about." (Author Unknown.)
There is a lot of difficult and disheartening news about the global warming emergency on this website. There is also much truthful good news.
The Job One for Humanity Plan for global warming adaptation exists because for the last 35 years, we have ignored the warnings of our best scientists and, we have not resolved this crisis (aka the global warming emergency, the climate change emergency, the climate crisis, climate change.)
The Job One Plan has the highest possible urgency because we have reached our last remaining 6-year window of opportunity to slow it down enough to prevent incurring unthinkable total extinction-level consequences. If we miss this final window of opportunity, we will go over the climate cliff. We will cross mass extinction tipping points and global warming will go out of our meaningful control for centuries to thousands of years!
The good news is that we still do have the next 6 years left to prevent a global warming-caused total extinction event from beginning over the next 50-70 years. All we have to do is reach or at least come very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets described here!
There is additional good news in that there is a clear, effective and comprehensive plan designed to help you reach these 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets. This plan will also help you:
1. prepare for and adapt to the next wave of unavoidable global warming catastrophes,
2. help you survive and thrive through what is coming and unavoidable,
2. lower your personal and business fossil fuel use, and
3. help you to get our governments to radically reduce global fossil fuel use by meeting the life-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. This will greatly increase our chances of avoiding a global warming-caused total extinction event. (Please read about the three most dangerous global warming tipping points described here! You will become very clear on the reality of how this total extinction event will unfold.)
All you have to do to do your part in adapting to the global warming challenges we now face is to:
a. select which part of the Job One Plan (below) that is right for you and your circumstances. And then
b. begin it.
If you have any remaining doubts about the urgency for why you should immediately start the Job One Plan to slow down and resolve the global warming emergency, we strongly recommend that you click here and watch this 4 Minute Global Warming Video by Greta Thunberg given at the United Nations on September 23, 2019. It should help you to understand, but more importantly, feel the seriousness of the global warming-caused emergency we now face and why we must work together to get our politicians to act.
The Job One for Humanity Plan, How to Adapt, Prepare and Act in Order for You and Humanity to have a Reasonable Chance of Surviving and Thriving!
The Job One Plan is based entirely upon the mission of our organization 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."
Which of the four parts of the Job One Plan should I start first?
Not everyone decides to take the same adaptation, protective, preparatory, remedial or fossil fuel reduction actions once they have had time to process the current global warming extinction emergency and research.
In general, we recommend doing:
a. Do parts 1 and 2 of the Job One Plan first. They will be essential for your personal adaptation and preparation so you and your loved ones will survive and thrive longer and more comfortably. This initial adapt and prepare focus is because we are already facing an mass extinction event within the next 30-50 years no matter what else we do.
b. Next, we recommend that you do parts 3 and 4 as best you can. They will help prevent a global warming total extinction event.
Parts 3 and 4 are especially for those of you that have significant direct or possible indirect influence on your local, regional, or national politicians. Parts three and four are also for those of you who are concerned with having everyone beyond your family and business (humanity, animals, and biological species,) survive longer. And,
c. If you can and, if you have the time, resources, or inclination, please work on all of the four parts of the Job One Plan. It is our best plan for avoiding total extinction.
More information on which Job One Plan part to start on will be found in the overview of each of the four parts below.
The Job One Plan, Parts 1 and 2: The Adaptation and Preparation Action Steps and Solutions for Individuals, Families and Small Businesses
For most individuals, Part 1 and Part 2 of the Job One Plan are the parts we generally recommend most people to do first. We strongly recommend that you start with Part 1 if you do not have:
1. direct connections of real influence on government politicians or,
2. indirect connections of real influence upon politicians through celebrities, ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, ultra-wealthy individuals or national intelligence agencies.
(If you do have direct or indirect connections of real influence upon politicians, we strongly recommend you begin Job One Part 3 while also actively working on Part 1. We have so little time left to achieve the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and prevent a massive human, animal, and biological extinction event from occurring within our lifetimes that, we absolutely have to immediately get our politicians to enact the critical government-driven action steps of Part 3 of the Job One Plan done!)
About Part 1 of the Job one Plan which is Your Personal Plan B and Survival Kit for the Global Warming and Climate Change Extinction Emergency
You will learn how to best prepare yourself, family and small business for the soon-arriving and unavoidable 20 worst consequences of global warming. Everyone now needs to have basic emergency preparation in place to survive the worst of the continually arriving new levels of global warming consequences while they also work on and through the other three Job One steps as described below. This is the single most important step to begin first! You may work on the other steps well you are working on the steps of Part 1.
For Part 1 of the Job one Plan click here.
About Part 2 of the Job One Plan: Critical Adaptation and Fossil Fuel Reduction Actions
You will learn the best individual actions to adapt to what global warming consequences are now unavoidable as well as how to become more sustainable to help do your individual part to slow and lessen the 20 worse consequences of global warming. This step will also help you use far fewer fossil fuels.
This step with all of its sub-steps will take some time to complete, but while you are working on it you can work on other action steps of Part 1 as well. By itself, Part 2 will not save us from the harshest and now unavoidable consequences of our past actions and inactions, but it will help to slow and lessen global warming hopefully just enough that more of us can be comfortable and survive a bit longer.
Parts 1 and 2 of the Job One Plan (immediately above,) are the individual actions you can take but please note, these individual actions alone are nowhere close to enough to ultimately save us from the coming worse consequences of global warming and likely extinction.

The Job One Plan, Part 3: The Critical Solutions Needed to be Immediately Executed by Our Politicians to Prevent Total Extinction.
If you already have connections of direct real influence on government politicians or, you do have indirect connections of real influence on politicians through celebrities, ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, or ultra-wealthy individuals or national intelligence agencies, Part 3 is the area we recommend you begin (while you are also doing Part 1.) This way, you are working for the best while you are also preparing for the worst.
The needed actions for politicians to take to prevent our total extinction is found only in Parts 3 of the Job One Plan. It contains what absolutely must be done immediately by our politicians if we are going to have any real chance of avoiding the beginning stages of total extinction within as little as the next 50-70 years.
Unfortunately, it is only the politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, and individuals that currently have sufficient direct power or influence to enact the challenging government-driven actions described in Part 3 of the Job One Plan. Only their actions will work to reduce greenhouse gases down to (or close to.) the 2025 target levels and then to carbon neutrality and net zero in time to save us from extinction. Only Part 3 of the Job One Plan executed successfully will eventually return us to safe atmospheric carbon levels of carbon 350 - 270 parts per million, [ppm]. (We are at about carbon 414 ppm now.)
The action steps described in Part 3 below are not actions that can be successfully achieved by common citizens who have little direct or influence on politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, and individuals. (Part 4 of Job One Plan potentially will help the rest of us get some creative influence over our politicians.)
More About Part 3 of the Job One Plan
It focuses exclusively upon a single, painful and dominant global warming extinction emergency reality. We must make immediate, radical and costly reductions in our fossil fuel energy generation and use that will be achievable only through government-driven, government-enforced, and government-penalized new laws and actions. This is the single most important part of the Job One Plan.
If we do not successfully execute this step without any further delays, there is no practical hope we can prevent escalating global warming from passing the mass human extinction-level and proceeding to the total extinction level.
Please also keep in mind that Part 4 of the Job One plan contains essential reading for individuals who do have a direct influence on their politicians. It also contains several sections on why many wealthy individuals, corporations, etc will want to actively help us solve this emergency!

Part 4: Solutions that Might Help Activate Celebrities, Ultra-wealthy Corporations, Philanthropies, Individuals, and Intelligence Agencies to Force Governments and Politicians to Act
Part 4 contains creative ideas on how individuals without direct influence on politicians might create an indirect influence on politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, or ultra-wealthy individuals to help get the must-do and critical government-directed actions found in Part 3 done.
Part 4 also contains critical reading for individuals who do have a direct influence on their politicians — particularly on why many wealthy individuals, corporations and nations will want to help us solve this emergency.
Getting the governments of the world and their politicians to work and act together is a beyond Herculean task. This is because saving our future will require nothing less than a massive mobilization of:
a. most of our politicians,
b. most of the major governments of the world and,
c. most of the world's resources working together to enact fossil fuel reduction laws that will be immensely difficult and unpopular until people understand that if we do not make these reductions there will be no future for humanity!
Part 4 offers indirect influence strategies, bypasses, and creative workarounds that if enough of us do them, might help indirectly influence the politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, or individuals that do have the influence to enact the critical government-driven actions described in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.
The very good news is that, if we successfully execute the parts 3 of the Job One Plan, some of humanity and many other species will survive the global warming total extinction emergency.
You now have all that you need to select where to start the Job One Plan. We do need your help and creativity to meet (or get very close to,) the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets as well as to prepare for the next wave of more severe and extensive global warming consequences.
We are an all-volunteer organization. If you do not self-organize your time and resources and help as best as you can, the global warming extinction emergency will evolve from an already massive human, animal and biological species extinction event within your lifetime to a total extinction event beginning within the next 50-70 years.

What an honest and effective solution and plan must do to end the global warming extinction emergency?
a. honestly face the real conditions currently present at the time and location at which you find yourself,
b. diligently locate all of the critical barriers that will keep you from reaching your objective, and it must,
c. use a systematic and comprehensive approach to prioritize all of the critical path actions needed to resolve those barriers before critical deadlines or tipping points are crossed to get you to your objective.
Even more good news
Unlike most all other global warming reduction plans, the Job One Plan for adapting to the global warming extinction emergency does all of the above by.
1. candidly confronting the harsh new reality on just how bad global warming extinction threat currently is. (See this page for that reality check.)
2. clearly defining all the critical barriers that must be overcome. (See this page for that reality check.)
3. providing a prioritized and effective plan for ALL critical path individual and collective actions that need to be taken to critical deadlines (Found in the Job One Plan links on this page.)
Everyone can find something to contribute and do in the many effective action steps found in the four-part Job One Plan described on this page.
Here is a quick sneak peek at the three most important actions in the Job One Plan:
a. have our world governments immediately enforce the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, (fossil fuel usage is the prime controllable cause of our current global warming extinction emergency.)
b. make both the individual and business emergency preparations for the already unavoidable consequences of global warming. and,
c. rapidly adapt our families, businesses, and nations to the realities of a future of escalating global warming consequences. (By doing so more of us will survive and thrive longer and be more comfortable.)
The first of the three critical actions above when successfully completed will help to slow down the worse consequences of global warming from continuing to increase in frequency, severity, and scale. The first action (above) when successfully completed can prevent us from crossing the global warming total extinction beginning level tipping point of carbon 600 parts per million (ppm.)
We can no longer continue with business as usual. The gradual and inadequate fossil fuel usage reductions currently being promoted by many government "authorities" simply will not work in time to save us. (What we must do to reach the 2025 global fossil fuel use reduction target levels is explained in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.)
How the deadline-driven Job One Plan of global warming solutions came about
For over 11 years the Job One for Humanity organization has been creating a continually updated meta-systemic overview and analysis of all relevant global warming research. (The meta-systemic analysis used for global warming examines the systems and subsystems involved in global warming from a meta-perspective that considers them both as stand-alone and individual systems as well as being interconnected and interdependent with and upon each other. The meta-systemic analysis involves detailed analysis of processes, contexts, relationships, and the continuous transformations occurring among and between interconnected and interdependent systems and subsystems within the selected area of analysis.)
This meta-systemic overview and analysis process creates a highly useful "big picture" as well as a Hegelian dialectical systems model of the coming global warming consequences, counter-consequences, and timetables.
This ongoing an original analysis of the most reliable global warming science has produced the current set of prioritized and practical global warming solutions found in the form of the four-part Job One for Humanity Plan.
(We will also soon have a new downloadable PDF file that includes all 4 parts of the recently upgraded Job One Plan in one easy free download. We will notify all website subscribers and members when it goes up.)
