The following is one of the most-read pages on our website. As you learn more about the enormity of our current global warming extinction emergency unfolding in our lifetimes (aka climate change emergency,) you may become disheartened.
You may even become depressed as you face the very real possibility of the mass human, animal and biological extinction and the end of our civilization, which will occur if we do not immediately and radically change our global fossil fuel burning ways by meeting the last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets in what can only be achieved through the greatest government-directed mass global mobilization for cutting fossil fuels usage and achieving a green energy transition in human history.
Out of sheer necessity and to maintain the mental well-being of our own Job One staff, we also discovered that regular review of the following good news and "surprise" benefit list was critical to keep our staff and volunteers on-mission maintaining their motivation.
The list below looks at the big picture. It envisions the many evolutionary benefits that are possible as we work together and cooperatively toward surviving the current global warming emergency and if we fail to work together, the real probability of mass human, animal and biological extinction as well as economic, social and political chaos within our lifetimes.
We hope that you will read and use the following global warming good news and benefits list whenever needed to keep your emotional balance and spirits up throughout the long and difficult global warming emergency recovery and resolution process ahead of us.
Global Warming Benefit 1 - Global Warming is the greatest collective adaptive challenge and evolutionary adventure in human history. As the single greatest "exterior" global threat and disruptor humanity has ever faced, it will force us to transform and grow in global cooperation, evolutionary maturity and as one human family. Seen from this perspective, our global warming emergency may also be the greatest opportunity in human history for intentional, well reasoned evolutionary growth.
Global Warming Benefit 2 - As we fully engage with the climate re-stabilization process (the Job One for Humanity Plan) we will also be creating the natural foundation for a long-term Sustainable Prosperity for everyone.
Global Warming Benefit 3 - By being forced toward a sustainable future, we create hundreds of millions of new, well paid green energy jobs.
Global Warming Benefit 4 - Our near out of meaningful control global warming will inevitably force us into new levels of local, national, and international climate cooperation.
Global Warming Benefit 5 - We still have time to get prepared and to build emergency reserves and resilience into our local and international preparedness systems. Click here for how to do this.
Global Warming Benefit 6 - Because we cannot completely eliminate the pain, suffering, and death due to global warming, we can at least still work together to effectively slow and MINIMIZE it and save and salvage as much as we can.
Global Warming Benefit 7 - Despite the threat before us, we can still fully enjoy our daily lives as we work together to resolve the many challenges of rapidly escalating global warming.
Global Warming Benefit 8 - There are unique spiritual, meaning and character-building benefits to people of faith and faith communities in dealing with this global warming emergency and forwarding the climate re-stabilization process.
Global Warming Benefit 9 - When we survive this emergency, it is likely we will do so by creating successful eco-community examples and we have learned to rebuild sustainably as one human family overseen by a cooperating and facilitating new global governmental system working for the benefit of all humankind.
Global Warming Benefit 10 - We can trust 13.8 billion years of evolutionary success and momentum to help get us through this global warming emergency and adaptive challenge.
Global Warming Benefit 11 - In resolving our global warming emergency we will be forced to pilot new, and better lifestyles, livelihoods, and eco-community models.
Global Warming Benefit 12 - There will be positive climate wildcards that will benefit some parts of the world at least temporarily. Some of those wildcards might also be in the form of new technologies that could help us dramatically reduce fossil fuel use and radically increase green energy generation and use.
Global Warming Benefit 13 - The "destructive creation" of the global warming extinction emergency will facilitate and compel the necessary structural clearing of resistant economic, social and political structures as well as other systemic benefits in our societies, economic systems, and our governments that would not be possible by any other means.
Global Warming Benefit 14 - Once we do eventually stop adding new carbon and methane pollution to the atmosphere each year we can eventually establish a new stable global average temperature and climate although it will take centuries or thousands of years.
Global Warming Benefit 15 - Ongoing scientific research on global warming and the destabilizing climate is effectively warning all rational individuals about the great global warming challenge and emergency before us. (For more information on our ongoing climate destabilization, go to the bottom of our global warming glossary by clicking here. It has the full definition of the 3 kinds of climate destabilization.)
Global Warming Benefit 16 - We can re-stabilize the climate without making it a polarized battle of us versus them because we can only do it together!
Global Warming Benefit 17 - Even if we do not stop escalating global warming in time for most of humanity to survive, from a “Big Picture” evolutionary perspective, there are still many benefits for the remaining biological planetary life and the evolution of humanity and our universe. See the new Climageddon Book for a detailed explanation of this complex last benefit.
The Last Resort Global Warming "Dark" Benefit 18: - We can still hope that we will slow and lessen what is coming just enough so that some of humanity and civilization will survive in the global warming safe zones of the future. There is also a very dark possibility that will allow some of us to survive. If we do not successfully radically cut fossil fuel use to the needed last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction target levels and allow the world economy to go into a severe recession or depression, the other most probable way that we might finally and successfully curtail our fossil for use is through a massive die-off of 70 to 90% of the human population. This will occur in part due to massive crop failures, starvation and the chaos linked to soaring global warming temperatures.
As billions die of starvation, or in migration and resource wars or because of the other 20 worst consequences of global warming, fossil fuel use will drop radically in what may be the dark "last resort solution and benefit” that saves humanity and civilization in the end. But remember: even if this happens, it will still take centuries to thousands of years before the average global temperature and the planet recovers from what we have done to it.
Survivors will be living a nightmare of high temperatures, extreme weather and chains of global warming-related consequences we can barely envision. Please see this page on our out of control global warming which explains this dark benefit in detail as well as the 2025 fossil fuel use reduction targets we must hit.
