The not-for-profit Job One for Humanity organization is primarily a place focused on educating individuals and businesses on how to survive and thrive the soon-arriving series of global warming and climate change emergency, consequences, and catastrophes. Our plan will also help improve these 12 other critical global challenges that we all now face as well. The Job One Plan also contains a detailed and effective plan for how to create a sustainable prosperity for all.
If you have just arrived at this page from an Internet search, and you have no idea how global warming and climate change has become an emergency threatening your future survival and well being, please read this quick summary page of our current global warming emergency condition before continuing reading.
Introduction to your personal plan for how to survive and thrive the coming climate change and global warming consequences and catastrophes
There is a lot of difficult and disheartening news about the climate change and global warming emergency on this website. There is also much good news.
Our Job One for Humanity climate change and global warming survival plan 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.)
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 climate cliff. We will also cross the four most critical extinction-evoking global warming tipping points and global warming will go out of our meaningful control for centuries to thousands of years!
The good news is that we can still survive and thrive!
We can still slow down our current global warming-caused mass extinction process and to save more people over the next 30-50 years and we still can prevent a global warming-caused 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!
There is a clear, effective, and comprehensive new plan designed to help you survive what is coming and reach these 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets and deal with our current global warming extinction emergency.
This new plan will also help you:
1. prepare for, adapt to and survive the next wave of unavoidable global warming catastrophes,
2. help you become more sustainable to not only survive but 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. While we will still have to face a mass extinction, this will greatly increase our chances of avoiding a global warming-caused total extinction event. (Please read about the four 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 facing the global warming challenges we now face is to select which part of the Job One survival plan (below) that is right for you and your current circumstances, and then begin it.
The Job One for Humanity Plan: How to Prepare, Adapt, and Act to Survive and Thrive Through the Coming Climate Change and Global Warming Consequences
The Job One Plan is based entirely upon the mission of our organization which is:
"To help the world survive, prepare for, and 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 part of the Job One Plan should I start first?
Not everyone decides to take the same preparatory, adaptation, protective, 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! Together Parts 1 and 2 will create your personal climate change survival Plan B! Part 1 will be essential to your needed emergency preparations and possible migration. Part 2 will be essential for your optimal personal adaptation to rapidly changing conditions and it will also help reduce our personal fossil fuel use.
Parts 1 and 2 will help and your loved ones will survive and thrive longer and more comfortably. This high-level survive, prepare, and adapt focus is critical because we are already facing mass extinction of much of humanity by mid-century no matter what else we do.
Why do we strongly recommend that you do Part 1 of the Job One Plan action steps first? The reason for this is similar to what occurs on an airplane if there's an emergency underway. In an airline emergency, you are always told to put your oxygen mask on first before trying to help your children, or anyone else. That way, you will be able to preserve yourself and your abilities.
By doing this airplane mask personal preparation and adaption first, you will then also be ready to help others through the emergency and better deal with its consequences or even causes. Similarly, individuals who become aware of the current global warming extinction emergency must also care for and preserve themselves and their loved ones first. This will then allow them to be around for the long and critical remaining battle to slow down escalating global warming enough to prevent total extinction.
b. We next 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 in the best order for your current circumstances. It's four parts represent our best plan for avoiding total extinction.
d. Parts 1 and 2 of our Plan B for Humanity also contain many of the actions needed to, directly and indirectly, improve many of the 12 other critical global challenges we currently face. Parts 3 and 4 of our plan are more focused more on the global warming emergency, but indirectly they too will also improve some of the other 12 critical global challenges.
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 Survive, Prepare and Adapt 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 governments or 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 Climate Change and the Global warming 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.
Part 1 also contains the Climate Change and Global Warming Relocation and Migration Manual Part 1 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 3 of the Job One plan also has a Plan B section for governments to do as a backup in case we cannot stop global warming in time to save most of us. For Part 3 of the Job One Plan, click here.
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.

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.
After you have been working on the action steps of the Job One Plan, please...
send us an email at manage@JobOneforHumanity and, let us know how you are doing. What you say or have learned may be essential to inspire, support, and encourage others in our monthly newsletter.
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 collective and governmental 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 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 core message of our website is simple and straightforward
We are not asking you to accept the following disruptive facts blindly. We have provided links to their scientific documentation and analysis (found on this page or website.)
Fact 1: Our governments were not prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic. They are even more unprepared for the accelerating global warming emergency. Our governments have ignored 35 years of global warming warnings by our best scientists, just like many of them have ignored the advice of our best pandemic scientists.
Fact 2: We have reached a global warming level where only a government-driven worldwide mass mobilization (similar to the mass mobilization that occurred before World War II) can save us in time! It is far too late for individual actions alone to achieve the required critical global fossil fuel reductions to save us from global catastrophe. (Part 3 of our Job One for Humanity Plan will show you how our governments can complete the required mass mobilization and required fossil fuel reductions to save us from catastrophe.)
Fact 3: Our governments are still not telling us the truth about how bad global warming is going to get. Many catastrophic and even some extinction-level consequences are going to arrive far sooner than we have been told.
Many catastrophic and some extinction level consequences are already unavoidable!
Fact 4: If we keep going the way we are now, our governments are less than five years away (2025) from missing our last chance to reduce global fossil fuel use sufficiently to control our futures and to prevent widespread human extinction.
The essential 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets will require us to reduce total global fossil use by 75%. This 75% global fossil fuel reduction target means that all developed countries (including China and India,) must reduce all auto, train, shipping, airline, industrial, agricultural, and home uses of all fossil fuels by 75% to meet their 2025 targets! (Click here for all of the global 2025 fossil fuel reduction target details.)
Fact 5: Missing this 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets means that global warming is removed from our meaningful control and that we will not be able to prevent the most catastrophic of the 20 worst global warming consequences from occurring.
If we fail to meet the 2025 targets, the laws of climate physics take over. We will not be able to stop the widespread collapse of world agriculture. If we allow the widespread collapse of world agriculture, the human population will quickly starve and collapse.
As warned by the UN Secretary-General and the UN Climate Secretariat, if we miss these 2025 targets, an even worse runaway global warming would render our beautiful Planet Earth uninhabitable! (Runaway global warming means that global warming is on a runaway course and will continue on and by itself.)
Runaway global warming will only happen if we are not able to stop ourselves from crossing the four most critical extinction-evoking global warming tipping points. If we do not make the 2025 global targets, we will not be able to stop ourselves from crossing the four critical extinction-evoking tipping points. (Click here to read about how these four critical extinction-evoking tipping points will unfold.)
Fact 6: Despite horrible odds for not reaching the 2025 targets, it is still technically possible to reach them as long as we execute an immediate all-out, worldwide global governmental response and mass mobilization. If our governments get us close to these targets, we can at least, slow down (but not stop) the coming mass human, animal, and plant die-off. This mass extinction event would kill off much of humanity as soon as 2050. With this unfolding mass extinction event would also be the collapse of the world economy and much of our civilization.
Because of these unthinkable consequences, we must do everything we can right now to meet the 2025 targets and slow down the mass extinction process. (Click here to read how challenging it will be to reach the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.)
Fact 7: Only by getting close to the global 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets and successfully managing these other 11 non-global warming global challenges, can we give ourselves the needed time to prevent an even worse total human extinction event from occurring around 2070 to 2100. (If you think that either the mass or total extinction threats are overstated, see this recent scientific summary by respected climate scientists.)
Fact 8: Currently we are horribly behind where we need to be in reducing fossil fuel use sufficiently to get even close to the 2025 global warming reduction targets. We are also failing miserably to manage these other 11 critical global challenges that are interacting with global warming to our detriment. Consequently, this is the time for wise individuals and businesses to create their own Plan B survival backup plans.
It is no longer reasonable to rely solely upon our poor-performing and limited-resourced governments to save your family or business from the accelerating global warming emergency.
This Plan B is a global warming emergency preparation, adaptation, and survival plan that might include migration or relocation to global warming safer areas. With your Plan B in place, you can still "keep working to help slow down global warming for the best possible global warming outcomes" after you have prepared your family and business for the soon-arriving worst possible outcomes. By having a personalized Plan B, you will be able to survive longer and more comfortably. (Click here to see the many best possible outcomes.)
If we can get through this global warming extinction emergency, you will have also preserved your opportunity to once again thrive. (Click here to see our Job One for Humanity Plan B. Our Plan B will also help save and salvage as much of our global civilization as we can for as long as we can so, we can once again thrive.
Fact 9: Depending on your location, you should still have plenty of time to prepare for and adapt to the global warming consequences that have now become unavoidable. The following survival-critical deadlines should be kept in mind. Knowing and using the following deadlines allows adequate time for the necessary emergency preparations and adaptations. The good news here is that we still have a small amount of time left to act to minimize the worst of the soon-arriving global warming consequences!
At this time it is appropriate to have an intelligent and mobilizing fear over the coming consequences of global warming. While Panic generally paralyzes, there are positive reasons for why the emotion of fear exists. Where positive fear exists, and it is over REAL threats to your survival, fear mobilizes the wise! So, here are the most critical global warming deadlines to remember to keep that mobilizing fear useful and in the proper perspective:
a. The 5-year deadline: At this time, it is all but impossible for us to reach the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. But, we still can slow down the extinction of much of humanity by mid-century and still maintain some level of control of our global warming future, but only by getting very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
b. The 7-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.) From 2020 to 2027 global warming consequences will steadily get worse in an accelerating linear progression. If you have prepared, adapted, and are in a global warming safer location before 2027, relative stability and security for your family and business is probable until around 2030 to 2040 depending upon your location. (See this page, which discusses how to prepare and the safest and least safe places to ride out the global warming extinction emergency.)
c. The 10-15 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.) After 2030-2035 many additional climate, human, ecological, political, and financial tipping points will be crossed due to both global warming and these critical global challenges getting worse. The stability and security of even the safest and best prepared global warming safer locations will lessen and become increasingly uncertain.
d. The 10-20 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.)Beginning around 2030, the frequency, severity, and size of 20 worst global warming consequences will move from an accelerating linear progression into an exponential progression. Stability and security for even the safest and best prepared global warming safer locations will become far more difficult and dangerous.
e. The 30-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.) As soon as by mid-century mass extinction for much of humanity is unavoidable. From 2030-2050 will be the most difficult period to survive for much to most of humanity. Generally, things will be only slightly better in global warming safer locations. (If you doubt that we will cross extinction-evoking tipping points and that it will be as bad as we are saying, please read this page first then this page!)
f. The 50-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.) We will face the worst consequences of runaway global warming and we will be heading toward the runaway greenhouse gas effect which ripped the atmosphere off Venus. Because of this escalating runaway global warming reality, humanity will likely face a total extinction event (what we describe as the Climageddon Scenario,) beginning as soon as 2070-2100.
There are many people who believe (or would like to believe,) that geoengineering, carbon capture, or some other new miracle technology will ride in like a knight on a white horse just in time to save humanity from the natural climate consequences of its actions, inactions, and mistakes. Click here to read about why this technology will save us fairy tale is not going to happen or will be "too little too late" to save us.
Summary of the Nine Facts:
Because of many decades of grossly insufficient global warming reduction actions by our governments, we no longer can avoid mass extinction occurring for much of humanity by mid-century.
Therefore, it is critical for our governments to first and finally, act together and immediately to prevent our total extinction later in the second half of this century. Our governments must immediately mass mobilize using these correct actions to radically slow down global warming to get the world as close as possible to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, or no one will survive!
For individuals and businesses, it is time to prepare for and adapt to the soon-arriving mega-climate catastrophes and the coming mass extinction which is now unavoidable. Our governments must also begin enacting Plan B worst-case strategies so that some of humanity and our civilization survive.
Unfortunately, to prevent the needed painful changes and public panic, our governments and politicians will adamantly deny the above facts. To keep the public calm and ignorant of the extreme dangers, they will issue false and misleading global warming reduction progress reports. Our governments will even promote hope in false solutions like illusionary carbon capture and geoengineering schemes.
Despite the numerous immense efforts to prevent widespread public access to the facts on this page, we must go where the science and the facts lead us, no matter how uncomfortable those facts might be. Otherwise, we would not properly prepare and adapt to the existing conditions to survive and thrive. (If you still have doubts, the links in the summary above will take you to the exact science and analysis needed to verify each of the above statements.)
It is not just Job One for Humanity saying these scary things anymore. Hundreds of climate scientists now feel we cannot keep global warming below a 2°C increase. This means that all we can do right now is prepare for and adapt to what's coming.
How to keep the difficult and disruptive facts on this page in a balanced and positive perspective
We will be able to avoid or delay some of the coming global warming consequences, while other consequences are unavoidable due to our ignorance, incompetence, inaction, or selfishness. Despite the types of consequences we now face, we can learn from their feedback and adapt and evolve. No matter what we face, we can keep working toward achieving the best possible remaining outcomes.
We can make a significant difference and stabilize and save the future by executing the comprehensive Job One for Humanity global warming action plan. We also can maintain the perseverance needed to succeed by regularly reviewing the many benefits which we will unfold as we work successfully on this together.
While we persevere, we must never forget that our greatest challenges are also the seeds of our greatest opportunities. We must continually realize that we are engaged in the most critical and meaningful evolutionary adventure in human history! This adventure is nothing less than removing the global warming extinction threat and, in so doing, indirectly improving most of the world's 12 other major challenges.
