Have your plan ready
Because of what you are reading on this website and the extremely limited time remaining to save humanity from likely extinction, each of us must "work for the best" (to radically reduce fossil fuel usage,) while also having wisely "prepared for the worst" possible outcomes to protect ourselves, families and businesses from now unavoidable consequences. Once we have prepared for those worst possible outcomes, we must then forget about those preparations and focus ALL of our attention and efforts toward meeting the fossil fuel cuts that need to occur for humanity and civilization to go on.
Just as there are no guarantees in life, there is also no guarantees humanity will be able to resolve the escalating global warming extinction emergency before it moves into the later phases of the Climageddon Extinction Scenario. Therefore, prudence dictates having an emergency survival plan for yourselves and loved ones, as well as having our businesses, community, and nation at the ready long before it will be needed.
From the preceding, you can see that there are many steps to getting ready for what is coming. If you have decided to migrate, it is essential that many other individuals who also believe in sustainable practices and progressive values migrate north as well. No matter how well-prepared you are you will not be able to survive alone. You will also need a community of similar values and vision to survive what is coming!
Additionally, the more individuals who do believe in sustainability and progressive values that move north, the more likely that the social and political situation in these northern areas will also forward these activities and values. If we do survive, this is also very good because those are the kind of values which will be essential to:
a. learning the necessary lessons of the global warming extinction emergency for adapting in the future, and
b. creating a just and peaceful future if humanity and our civilization do survive.
It is truly unfortunate that many groups of religious fundamentalists and political conservatives do not believe that global warming is real. They will be trapped by their own ideologies which will blind them to the escalating warning signs until it will be too late. They will stay too long in the unsafe areas and the value of their business, homes, and investments will eventually crash.
Making matters worse, when they finally do try to migrate to the safe zones too late in the mass migration process, they will find the most suitable land already occupied and even the least suitable land selling at prices they could not afford even if they did still have their previous assets fully intact. No one deserves this fate, but unfortunately many will continue to deny the global warming realities and will not hear about the Job One Plan in time and will suffer needlessly for it.
The ultimate bitter truth here for us all is that:
a. humanity will be very, very lucky if it keeps from crossing the carbon 600 ppm extinction tipping point and into the final Climageddon Extinction Scenario phases.
b. those who migrate wherever necessary and then organize themselves into strong and sustainable eco-communities will have the best chance of surviving as long as possible and being as comfortable as possible through the worst of the coming times.
c. While we work toward achieving the best possible outcomes, we must also prepare and adapt so we can still "save and salvage" as much as is possible of humanity and civilization for the future and future generations.
Here are a few other quick summary ideas from the document above to keep in mind:
Build resilience into your existing personal, community, and national systems. To establish your basic personal recovery resilience, create at least a 30-day reserve of all necessary survival commodities (food, water, heat, energy, lights, toiletries, communication devices, maps, medicines, and self-defense, etc.).
Build backup redundancies into your water, power, heating, sewage, and other critical systems. Do this now so you and your loved ones will not be unprepared, suffer unnecessarily, or die.
Emergency cash or tradeable commodity reserve helps you build early phase financial resilience by building up and storing an easily exchangeable commodity now that you can easily use later when needed. In the later Climageddon Extinction Scenario phases, when cash may be no longer accepted or is devalued, you will need to have food, water, medicine, weapons, and maybe small silver coins or other in-demand tradeable commodities to survive in a barter system that will surely evolve.
Mobility will be a key life-saving capability during the worst phases of the global warming extinction emergency and mid-to-late Climageddon Extinction Scenario phases. Our crisis-surviving ancestors have repeatedly proven the validity and importance of this mobility (migration) principle.
No government or charity will be able to respond to the ever-increasing global demands for more emergency resources and services as the costs and other consequences of escalating global warming increase in frequency, scale, and severity with each degree of temperature increase.
Being physically and psychologically prepared for emergencies is the most basic form of insurance. It existed long before we ever began paying premiums to today’s insurance companies.
The more people who know when and where to migrate, the more people who will have a better quality of life for a longer period of time.
In addition to the necessary physical emergency preparations, to survive and thrive while dealing with what's coming, you will need to build and preserve your psychological and emotional resilience.
The emergency climate preparedness recommended in the Job One Plan is never wasted. The Job One Plan not only assists individuals with strategies to survive the current global warming emergencies and catastrophes but also helps ensure you survive our many other major global challenges and emergencies.
If we do enter the later phases of the Climageddon Extinction Scenario, we are in a no-win situation. No areas of the planet will be safe or secure other than on a temporary basis.
Individuals who prepare to survive ecological catastrophes like our out-of-control global warming are known as eco-preppers. There is an extensive network of Prepper websites dedicated to different survival and preparedness strategies and philosophies.
Because we have already begun crossing global warming tipping points, business planners, city planners, long-term corporate and governmental planners of all kinds need to immediately begin restructuring their 5, 10, and 25-year plans, always using the least optimistic climate prediction scenarios for how the consequences of escalating global warming will unfold. We will be very lucky if the worst we get is anything even close to the IPCC’s current least optimistic projections! (See the new book Climageddon for more accurate prediction scenarios for our global warming future.)
Never forget, it's not just any land in the north that will be safe. It is a fertile land with abundant water that will not destabilize in escalating forest fires, droughts, rain bombs and that is isolated or protected enough so you can survive the marauding hordes desperate and destitute climagees who themselves waited too long to migrate.
What we do know is, that no matter what, and in spite of all of the challenges and bad outcomes that are possible, the single constant truth for the best possible global warming outcome is that the faster and more we reduce global fossil fuel use:
a. the more people we will survive to carry on our civilization, and
b. that future generations will suffer less from the ever-increasing sequence of global warming consequences (as described fully in what is called the Climageddon Extinction Scenario.)

About Part 2 of the Job One Plan on How to Adapt to the Global Warming Emergency by Adapting, Becoming More Sustainable, and Using Less Fossil Fuels
The Job One Plan Part 2 is on the public areas of our website. In it, you will take adaptive actions to make your lifestyle and livelihood more sustainable. The critical reasons you will be working to adapt and make your life and lifestyle more sustainable are:
1. Part 2 shows you how to reduce your individual fossil fuel use to the required minimum levels described to reach the 2025 goals.
2. You will need to institute all of these adaptative and sustainability practices to survive the massive global food crop failures and the lack of production and distribution of other essential items due to global warming consequences and side effects.

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.
