Effective Solutions for How to Reduce, Adapt to, and Survive Climate Change Consequences and Improve the Environment


The following page will help you select from among eighty of the most effective actions that you can start immediately to do something meaningful about climate change and our deteriorating environmental conditions. Our step-by-step Job One for Humanity Climate Change Resilience plan will allow you to start something that is prioritized, practical, and relevant to your current resources, networks, and zones of influence. 

Taken one action step at a time. It will help keep you from being overwhelmed by the dangers and the immensity of the climate and environmental challenges we all now face.


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 and environmental consequences (wildfires, flooding, drought, rain bombs, extreme weather, etc.) that you see every day in the news? 

Our Job One for Humanity Climate Change 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 losses and suffering.

It will even help you learn how to live more sustainable lives and livelihoods to do your part to improve environmental conditions. 

Once the global warming emergency and its negative environmental impacts have been resolved, our plan also contains actions for creating sustainable prosperity for all. Many of its activities will also help improve the other non-climate major global crises that we currently face. 

In the Job One Climate Change Resilience Plan quick overview below, it will become clear to you quickly which of the four parts of the Job One plan will be best for you to begin first. 

The Job One Plan for Adapting to and Surviving Climate Change and its many Interconnected Consequences

The Job One Plan has four parts: 

Part One 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. 

Part Two includes the fossil fuel reduction and sustainability-building adaptive actions we must do for the global warming consequences that can no longer be avoided. To Start Part 2 of the Job One Plan now, Click here. 

Part Three 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 total extinction. To start Part 3 of the Job One Plan now, click here. 

Part Four provides creative 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 reduction targets. To start part 4 of the Job One Plan now, click here. 

Please keep in mind that Part Three and Four of the Job One Plan are for individuals and businesses that believe that they can directly or indirectly influence their politicians. 


The Job One for Humanity Climate Change Resilience Plan exists because for the last 35 years, we have ignored the warnings of our best scientists and, we have not resolved this crisis. 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 these 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 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 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! 

And finally, the Job One for Humanity Plan is a clear, effective, and comprehensive new plan designed to help you survive what is coming, reach these 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets, and deal with our current global warming extinction 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 part 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 part of the plan below.)

(If you still do not understand how global warming and climate change are serious, immediate, or soon-arriving threats to your survival, stability, and finances and why you need to begin the right part of the Job One Plan for you now, please read this quick summary page about our current global warming emergency before continuing.) 

More 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 as described below. 

Part 1 also contains the Climate Change and Global Warming Relocation and Migration Manual. For many 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. To Start Part 1 of the Job One Plan now, click here or click the Preparing for Emergencies image below.

More About Part 2 of the Job One Plan

Here you will learn 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. To Start Part 2 of the Job One Plan now, Click here or click the Sustainability Best Practices image below. 


More About 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 (while you are hopefully also doing Part 1.)
This way, you are still working for the best to prevent extinction while you are also preparing for the worst.

The needed mass mobilization 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 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 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 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 direct or indirect creative influence over our politicians.)

Part 3 focuses exclusively upon a single, painful, and dominant global warming extinction emergency reality. We must make immediate, radical, and costly reductions in our global fossil fuel energy generation and use that will be achievable only through mass mobilized, 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 are to have a livable future.

If we do not find a way to successfully execute this step without any further delays, there is no realistic or practical hope we can prevent escalating global warming from passing the mass human extinction-level and proceeding to the total extinction level. To start Part 3 of the Job One Plan now, click here or click the government building image below. 

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.


More About Part 4 of the Job One Plan

Here are additional creative solutions that might help activate ultra-wealthy individuals, corporations, philanthropies, celebrities, 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 all 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 the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and 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 several 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 best news is that, if we successfully execute Part 3 of the Job One Plan, some of humanity and many other species will survive the global warming total extinction emergency. To start part 4 of the Job One Plan now, click here or click the puzzel image above.  

You now have all that you need to select where to start the Job One Plan.

Additional Information on the Job One Climate Change Resilience Plan

What an honest and effective solution and plan must do to end the global warming extinction emergency?

It must:

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 the 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. 

How the deadline-driven Job One Climate Change Resilience 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 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 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 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 Us

The not-for-profit Job One for Humanity organization provides a unique "big picture" view of the many interconnected and interdependent climate system factors behind the global warming emergency (aka the global warming emergency, the climate change emergency, the climate crisis, climate change.) Unlike other climate change educational organizations, we do provide critical-path, prioritized solutions based upon the REAL global fossil fuel reduction targets and the global warming tipping point deadlines we currently face. 

Our website focuses on educating individuals and businesses about surviving and thriving through the future climate change challenges. We also integrate the complex "big picture" math and physics-driven interactions of the climate's many sub-systems into easy-to-understand illustrations, descriptions, and documentation. As you will soon discover, you have found a very special climate change educational website.
