Collective Action Step 1:
Climate destabilization is our most immediate global challenge. Whipsawing into all of the other mega-global challenges (peak oil, desertification, water pollution, population, etc.), climate destabilization amplifies them toward an extinction-level crisis. There can be no sustainable prosperity if we do not get the rapidly escalating climate destabilization fixed quickly!
We completely depend upon the global climate's stability for our food production and much of our physical security and safety. Each increase of average temperature lowers global food production by an estimated 10%--and that is only one of the many dire consequences of climate destabilization caused by global warming.
Put even more simply, we cannot create sustainable prosperity if the rapidly escalating consequences of human-caused atmospheric carbon pollution reach the level of irreversibility or create such a level of climate destabilization that it destroys half of all species and starves most of the human population to death (extinction-level climate destabilization.) In our organization, our focused climate recovery program in this area is called Job One for Humanity because it deals directly with the most destructive and imminent threat to our whole climate and life-supporting ecosystem in the form of human-caused carbon pollution of the atmosphere.
It is this human-caused carbon pollution of the atmosphere, which is now causing catastrophic and what soon will be irreversible climate destabilization if we do not act wisely and now!
As of July 2023, We are currently at the insane atmospheric carbon level of 420 ppm. We will soon enter the generally considered irreversible and second phase of runaway global heating sometime between 2025-2031. This is when we enter into the carbon 425-450 ppm range. Irreversible climate change means that we will not be able to get the dangerous levels of excess greenhouse gases (like carbon) back down to normal and human safe pre-industrial level out of our atmosphere for hundreds to thousands of years.
