In July of 2021, the world's leading global warming authority, known as the IPCC (the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), made the most significant single change to its climate position and global warming consequence predictions in its decades-long history!
The IPCC now says we can no longer prevent many of the worst consequences of global warming. So all that we can do now is to adapt to them!
But, precisely how can you adapt, lower your fossil fuel use, and replan your lives around the rapidly intensifying climate change and environmental consequences (wildfires, flooding, droughts, rain bombs, extreme weather, hurricanes, wildfire smoke, Derechos, monster dust storms, etc.) that you see more and more every day in the news?
Our Job One for Humanity Global Heating Solutions and Resilience Plan will help you do this.
Not only will it describe the many interrelated global warming consequences you will need to prepare for and adjust your life plans around, but it will also provide you with a comprehensive plan of practical fossil fuel reduction, preparation, and adaptation strategies that will be crucial to minimize your climate change-related losses and suffering.
It will even help you learn how to live more sustainable lives and livelihoods to do your part to improve our social and environmental conditions.
Once the climate and global heating emergency and its negative environmental impacts have been resolved, our plan also contains actions for creating a sustainable prosperity for all.
Many of the Job One Plan action steps will also help improve the 11 other non-climate major global crises that we currently face.
The Job One Plan for Adapting to and Surviving Climate Change and its Many Interconnected Consequences
The Job One Plan has four parts. As of 4.15.22, we had to rearrange the original order of the four parts of the Job One Plan to reflect the current urgency of the very limited remaining time we have left to prevent extinction. Always keep in mind that the more parts and steps of the Job One Plan below that we complete successfully, the greater the percentage of humanity we can still save from the suffering and the near-total extinction consequences of runaway global heating.
The new recommended order in which to do the Job One is as follows. You may of course choose to do these steps in a different order based on your current situation and resources.
Here is our suggested order:
Read Part Three first but only if you have real political influence at national levels. It includes everything critical our governments must do to mass mobilize and slow down global warming's unavoidable consequences enough so we can survive longer and suffer less, and humanity can avoid near-total extinction. To start Part 3 of the Job One Plan now, click here.
Read Part 2 if you have or could have local, regional or state political influence. Click here for Part 2 of the Job One Plan.
Next Read Part Four if you do not have significant direct national political influence. It provides creative indirect strategies for getting our governments to finally do what is urgently necessary to reduce global fossil fuel usage to get close to our last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. To start part 4 of the Job One Plan now, click here.
If you do not have significant direct local, regional, or state political influence, start Part One. It includes the minimal emergency safety preparations that we as individuals and businesses must have ready for managing the global warming consequences that can no longer be avoided. To Start Part 1 of the Job one Plan now, click here.
While doing your best to make progress on all of the previous parts, at some point also start Part Two. It includes local, regional and state voting recommendations and the fossil fuel reduction and sustainability-building adaptive actions we must do to survive the many global warming consequences that can no longer be avoided.

Here is the tough news
If we are going to survive near-total extinction, we must get Part Three of the Job One Plan done! The only way to get Part Three done with the very little time we have left is to use the long-shot tactics of Part Four of the Job One Plan.
The Job One for Humanity Global Heating Solutions and Resilience Plan exists because for the last 60 years, we have ignored the warnings of our best scientists and, we have not resolved the accelerating climate change emergency. Enacting the Job One Plan has the highest possible urgency because we have reached our last remaining window of opportunity.
If we miss this final window of opportunity, we will go over the first extinction evoking tipping point. We will then also soon cross the other three extinction-forwarding global warming tipping points. If we cross any of the four tipping points, global warming will go out of our meaningful control for centuries to thousands of years!
There is a lot of difficult and disheartening news about climate change and global warming emergency on this website. The good news is that we can still survive and thrive for as long as is possible! We can still slow down and delay our current global warming-caused extinction process and save more people over the next 30-50 years and we can still prevent a global warming-caused near-total extinction process 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!
The Job One for Humanity Plan is a clear, effective, and comprehensive new plan designed to get us close to reach 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and deal with our current emergency. For the future of humanity and our civilization, please get started with one or more of the parts and steps of the Job One for Humanity Plan today.
All you have to do is to select which of the four parts of the Job One Climate Change Resilience plan is right for you and your current circumstances, and then begin it. (There are links to and more information on each of the four parts of the plan below.)
"By working on or promoting the action steps of our Job One for Humanity Global Heating Solutions and Resilience Plan, you are doing something noble and beautiful. You are not only acting to save yourself and those you love, but you also are helping to reduce the suffering and save the lives of billions of others.
You are also becoming a true global heating hero or heroine and a global heating educator or activist." Lawrence Wollersheim
Please do not forget that if you have effective ways to influence your national politicians or government to get close to the survival-required 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets before it is too late, make it a priority! This political action will allow more people to survive runaway global heating. If you do not have effective political influence, then work on the other more local parts of the Job One Plan that you can influence.
About Part 1 of the Job One Plan
You will learn how to best prepare yourself, your family, and your 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 and many now unavoidable new levels of global warming consequences while they also work on and through the other Job One parts.
Part 1 also contains the Climate Change and Global Warming Relocation and Migration Manual. You may work on the other steps well you are working on the steps of Part 1. To Start Part 1 of the Job One Plan now, click here or click the Preparing for Emergencies image below.
By May 17, 2022 we will have a new reminder, support, and question help email system up and running to help you get through the critical steps of Part 1.
About Part 2 of the Job One Plan
Here you will learn about wise local, regional and state political actions and the best individual actions to adapt to what global warming consequences are now unavoidable as well as how to reduce your fossil fuel use to become more sustainable to help do your individual part to slow and lessen the 20 worse consequences of global warming.
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 the 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 and it will get you moving in the right direction for the future.

About the Critical Part 3 of the Job One Plan
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.
The needed mass mobilization actions for politicians to take to prevent our near-total extinction is found only in Part 3 of the Job One Plan. It contains what absolutely must be done by our politicians if we are going to have any real chance of avoiding the beginning stages of near-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 critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction 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 the safe atmospheric carbon levels of carbon 350 - 270 parts per million, [ppm]. (We are at about carbon 420 ppm now.)
The primary action steps described in Part 3 are not actions that can be successfully achieved by individuals who have little direct influence on politicians, intelligence agencies, and 1% ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, and individuals.
Part 3 focuses exclusively on a single, painful, and dominant global warming extinction emergency reality. We must make immediate, radical, and costly reductions in our global fossil fuel energy use and generation that will be achievable only through a mass mobilized, government-driven, government-enforced, and government-penalized new laws and actions. Part 3 is the single most important part of the Job One Plan if we are to have a livable future.
If we do not find a way to successfully execute this step without further delays, there is no realistic or practical hope we can prevent escalating global warming from passing the mass human extinction-level and proceeding uncontrollably to the near-total extinction level.

Part 3 of the Job One plan even has a Plan B section for governments to do as an "all is lost" backup in case we cannot stop global warming in time to save most of us.
About Part 4 of the Job One Plan
Part 4 contains creative solutions that might help activate the 1% ultra-wealthy individuals, corporations, philanthropies, celebrities, and intelligence agencies to force governments and politicians to act. Part 4 contains creative and radical ideas on how individuals with or without direct influence on politicians might create a direct or an indirect influence on politicians, intelligence agencies, and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, or the 1% of ultra-wealthy individuals to help get the must-do critical government-directed actions found in Part 3 done.
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 the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and laws. These new laws will be immensely difficult and unpopular until people understand that if we do not make these reductions there will be no future at all for humanity!
Part 4 offers our best direct influence strategies as well as bypasses, and creative workarounds that if enough of us do them, should influence the politicians, intelligence agencies, and 1% ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, or individuals that do have the direct and immediate influence to enact the critical government-driven actions described in Part 3 of the Job One Plan to save us in time to prevent near-total extinction.
The best news is that, if we successfully execute Part 3 of the Job One Plan in time, some of humanity and many other species will survive the global heating near-total extinction emergency.

Additional Information on the Job One Global Heating Solutions and Resilience Plan
What an honest and effective solution and plan must do to end the climate change extinction emergency and threat?
a. honestly face the real conditions and deadlines 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 the known critical deadlines or tipping points are crossed to get you to your objective.
Even more good news
Unlike most all other climate change reduction plans, the Job One Plan for adapting to the climate change extinction emergency does all of the above by:
1. candidly confronting the harsh new reality on just how bad the climate change and 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 meet critical deadlines (Found in the Job One Plan links on this page.)
"No program that claims to have a solution to climate change and global heating can not be called legitimate unless it is designed and focused around knowing when a global heating-driven near-total extinction event will probably occur, how it will occur, and what must be done when to prevent that outcome. The Job One for Humanity four-part program relentlessly follows this critical path and deadline policy." Lawrence Wollersheim

How the deadline-driven Job One Global Heating Solutions and Resilience Plan 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 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.
The Simple Logic Behind the Job One for Humanity Adapt and Survive Plan
If you are looking for prudent actions to survive and thrive through the coming crises for as long as possible, the Job One for Humanity action plan was developed for you. It is based on the simple logic that, if we do not come close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, when faced with unavoidable mass die-off by mid-century and a highly probable near-total extinction event before the end of the 21st century, it is best to use your remaining time and energy wisely. A wise use of remaining time and energy would include:
1.) making your remaining time as safe, fulfilling, meaningful, and sustainably comfortable as is possible for as long as you can, (Parts 1 and 2 of the Job One Plan.)
2.) doing everything within your power to prevent near-total to near=total extinction and to save and salvage whatever you can of humanity and civilization for as long as you can --- instead of doing nothing and losing everything --- even sooner! (Parts 3 and 4 of the Job One Plan.)
About Our Climate Research and Analysis
At Job One for Humanity, our volunteer climate analysts and researchers provide a "big picture" holistic view of the inter-connected and inter-dependent climate systems creating our current climate change emergency. Using the principles of system theory and dialectical metasystemic thinking applied to the climate as a complex adaptive system, we analyze recent climate change research for errors, omissions, and unrecognized patterns which could affect current climate consequences, timeframes, or recommended remedies. We intensely analyze the climate's multiple related systems and subsystems.
Unlike many other climate change think tanks, we do provide prioritized, critical-path, and deadline-driven solutions to the climate change emergency. These solutions are based on accurate global fossil fuel reduction targets and the most dangerous climate change tipping point deadlines we currently face.
Job One for Humanity actively exposes the current intense politicization of climate science. This intense politicization of climate science by the media, our governments, and the UN's IPCC act to forward a gross underestimation of our actual climate consequences, timeframes, remedies, and emergency. Unexpectedly, our independent climate analysis has also turned us into reluctant whistleblowers exposing how most of today's public climate data has been distorted to serve the hidden financial interests of those who gain most from the ongoing global use of fossil fuels.
