Migration and the big picture challenges and difficult global warming choice options as we stare down a high probability Great Global Collapse and possible later Great Global Rebirth
Global warming is fueling a Great Global Collapse, but it also could be setting the stage for a Great Global Rebirth.
If you have not read the Great Global Collapse page, we strongly recommend doing so before reading this migration and Great Global Rebirth challenges page. Understanding this collapse process will provide a robust and complete overview of the many consequences and migration challenges we must endure before our global warming-influenced lives can get better.
Also, if you have not read about the many benefits and processes of a possible Great Global Rebirth, first, read this page and then be sure to see this page! We know the preceding is a bit of preparatory reading. Still, these are the most read pages on our website.
Unless you can see the probabilities and relationships of the Great Global Collapse consequences to the possibilities of the Great Global Rebirth benefits, the following analysis and recommendations will be far less helpful to you as you ponder your migration options.
Humanity now faces a global warming-fueled, highly probable Great Global Collapse and the possibility of a Great Global Rebirth once we make it through the collapse cycle. But, after the Great Global Collapse occurs, the possibility of a Great Global Rebirth is far from assured.
In fact, for the hearty souls who decide to get prepared to survive the Great Global Collapse and migrate, the probability of a high success rate is not encouraging. Therefore, the rest of this document will illuminate the challenges of migrating and making it through long enough to get to the point that a Great Global Rebirth could occur.
This article is another example of how Job One candidly provides both the good and bad news about the global warming emergency.
Why the possibility for a Great Global Rebirth after the Great Global Collapse is not good:
1. We are already facing the extinction of much of humanity by mid-century because of existing global warming consequences that we can no longer avoid! To prevent total extinction, we must come very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. Unfortunately, two dozen reasons on this page will make getting close to the 2025 global targets extremely difficult.
2. Individuals and their communities will have to first survive many severe consequences described in detail in the Great Global Collapse process.
3. Long before the worst global warming-related consequences have run their full course to total extinction, the world's nations will probably initiate a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical World War III. This new global war will likely occur because nations will be desperately fighting over the limited global warming-safer lands and other scarce resources.
4. In the post-collapse period of failed national governments, any survivors will have to deal with the toxic effects of compromised nuclear reactors, chemical weapons, and biological weapons, as well as any "leakage" from their manufacturing, service, and storage facilities. Hundreds of millions will sicken and die as unsecured and unsupervised nuclear reactors go critical and spew toxic radiation worldwide. Millions more will sicken as they die from the releases of insecure biological weapons and toxic industrial chemicals. If too many nuclear reactors go critical and meltdown, the radiation circling the planet will kill off all life within a few years of nuclear winter.
5. Survivors will not only have to deal with a physically toxic environment. They will also have to deal with an emotionally and psychologically poisonous environment. Anyone who survives the Great Great Collapse and die-off will have experienced the greatest collective trauma in human history. The emotional and psychological stresses created by watching everything you loved be destroyed, taken away, or die, will significantly diminish the health and lifespans of most post-collapse survivors.
6. If there are survivors after the Great Global Collapse process, they then will most likely enter a global New Dark Age. But, this will not be like the Dark Age that occurred during the Middle Ages. Instead, it will be far worse. This is because most of the easy-to-access natural resources available during humanity's original Dark Age will already be depleted, and much of the planet will be toxic.
This New Dark Age will likely last for many, many decades, if not more than a century. During this New Dark Age, living conditions for most of the planet will be brutal and most likely overseen by barbaric local warlords or clans. For a community of survivors to endure all of the above over greatly extended periods will be nothing short of miraculous!
7. Even if survivors make it through the post-collapse and the New Dark Age, it will take centuries to thousands of years for our Earth's natural systems to come back into balance. Only then will the climate conditions suitable for more humans to thrive be present once again.
To survive all of the above, at the minimum, survivors will need to be in the safest possible global warming locations and a part of a strong eco-community that can help protect them and produce most of their needs. They will also need a new worldview and set of values (not unlike the unique worldview and values found at www.UniverseSpirit.org) to have deep enough science and spiritual "roots" to survive all they will need to endure.
Hopefully, if this post-collapse and post-New Dark Age is survivable, any surviving clans, tribes, or communities still functioning will have learned the painful lessons of the Great Global Collapse. They will have changed their unsustainable and inequitable behaviors.
They will develop a new worldview and new economic, political, and social systems. This new worldview and its new systems will provide the essential tools and opportunities for a new re-building and reboot of humanity.
Suppose some of humanity does survive through all of the above. In that case, it will genuinely have an opportunity to experience and create a unique renaissance where both humankind and nature come back into a balance. This will allow both to flourish. If this happens, whatever is left of humanity will carry forward and make better humanity's great evolutionary adventure on Earth.
Fasten your seat belts. Strap on your shoulder harnesses and put on your helmets. We are entering the extreme turbulence of the beginning stages of the Great Global Collapse process. What you have experienced with the COVID-19 pandemic is just a tiny beginning of it. The Covid 19 pandemic, all of its global social and economic disruptions, and its mass die-off will be considered "a day at the beach" when it is compared to what is coming.
What are reasonable life choices and planning options to consider with the probability of longer-term survival so challenging?
How do you plan your remaining life when looking at the high probability of increasing hardship, instability, chaos, and death for most, if not all, of humanity? The first thing we recommend to do is to look at what are the global warming-related consequences most probable to occur during the remainder of your life.
The good news here is that, depending on your current location, there is no need to panic! You still have numerous years to get prepared and adapt to what is coming. All you have to do is decide how long you want to live in relative comfort and stability and prepare accordingly.
Step One: Review the six conditional action deadlines below
Assuming you have read the Great Global Collapse and you have also made some notes on its key consequence dates, the following critical survival, and location-relevant deadlines will also help:
a. The 5-year deadline: (From now until the end of 2025.) At this time, it is appropriate to admit it is all but impossible for us to fully meet the total 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets! But, we still do have enough time left to slow down (but not avoid) a mid-century mass extinction event for much of humanity by getting close to them. Thus, although we have passed the point of avoiding the die-off of much of humanity, we still can maintain some level of control of our global warming future. And most importantly, we can still prevent total extinction by getting very close to the 2025 targets!
This total extinction danger also means we have to educate the world about the extinction-evoking global warming tipping point deadlines after preparing our own survival provisions and/or after creating safe and sustainable community cooperatives or sanctuaries.
b. The 5-10-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and did not get close to them.) From 2020 to 2027, global warming consequences will steadily worsen in a rising but steeper linear progression. More people will wisely migrate to safer areas. Millions will die because of climate-related food shortages and other global warming-related catastrophes.
If you have prepared, adapted, and if applicable, are in a global warming safer location before 2027, and you have a good Plan B in place, depending upon your location, relative stability and security for family and business are probable until about 2030 to 2040. (See this Plan B page, which discusses how to prepare in the safest locations and what are the least safe places to ride out the global warming extinction emergency.)
c. The 10-15 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and we did not get close to the 2025 targets.) After 2030-2035 many other climate, human, ecological, political, and economic tipping points will be crossed due to accelerating global warming consequences and global warming amplifying the consequences of most of these 11 other critical global challenges.
The stability and security of even the safest and best prepared global warming safer locations will lessen and become increasingly challenging. Those individuals in supportive cooperatives or sustainable communities should be significantly safer and better adapted than those who are not.
d. The 15-25 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and we did not get close to meeting these targets.) Beginning around 2030, the frequency, severity, and size of the 20 worst global warming consequences will move from a steeply rising linear progression into an exponential progression. As a result, stability and security for even the best prepared, safer global warming locations, cooperatives, and sustainable communities will become far more complex and dangerous.
e. The 25-30-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and at least, we got close to them or compensated for these targets somewhere over this period.) By mid-century, extinction for much of humanity will still be unavoidable. From 2030-2050 will be the riskiest period to survive for much to most of society. Generally, things will be better in safer global warming locations, special cooperatives, and sustainable communities. But even there, survival is far from guaranteed without the highest preparation, adaptation, and cooperation levels.
f. The 50-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and unfortunately, we did not even get close to them.) In this case, we will face the worst consequences of runaway global warming. We will be heading toward the beginning of the runaway greenhouse gas effect, which ripped the atmosphere off Venus. Because of this escalating runaway global warming reality and not getting close to the 2025 reduction targets, humanity will, unfortunately, finally face a total extinction event beginning as soon as 2070-2100. We call this the Climageddon Scenario.
At this dangerous juncture in the evolution of humanity, it is also wholly appropriate to feel fear because of the many known consequences of accelerating global warming and the worsening of these 11 other global crises. While generalized fear or panic often paralyzes, there are positive evolutionary reasons for fear's emotion. The positive use of fear exists for those rare times when there are REAL threats to your survival. Positive fear mobilizes the observant and wise to act before it is too late!
So, here is some good news. If we at least get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, we can still prevent total human extinction. If we do not, we begin crossing too many additional extinction-triggering tipping points. This happens far too fast to prevent the worst consequences of runaway global warming multiplying the worsening effects of the other 11 major global crises.
To support your choices and timelines, we also provide highly relevant emergency preparation, adaptation, and other location/relocation safety and risk level information. It begins on this page.)
Step 2: Consider your new global warming-informed life plan options
Once you have determined what will happen and when over your expected lifespan, it's then time to decide just how you want to live and have the most stability in that remaining time. Below please find the most common options that people select.
Option 1: In a do-or-die effort, many individuals and groups will decide to pour all of their remaining resources into getting our governments to get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets as the only honest and effective way to save some of humanity. (People who chose this option may also see the many potential global warming survival benefits.)
As more individuals and groups realize they are fighting for their survival, maybe our governments will finally listen to a rising mass global outcry for action. Perhaps our governments will eventually enforce the drastic global fossil fuel reductions needed, and hopefully, it will not be too little too late.
(Our organization honors the courage and sacrifice of individuals who choose this option.)
Option 2: Despite difficult long-term survival odds, (described in the Great Global Rebirth section above) many people still will decide to take a chance and do the necessary preparation and adaptation to survive for as long as possible and, as comfortably as possible. The drive to survive at all costs is very powerful in our species.
Individuals who chose to survive as long as possible might also relocate to global warming safer lands as needed. They might also form or join a sustainable eco-community that will have their back as things worsen and help them produce what is needed as distribution networks stall or collapse.
People who chose this option also may see the many potential global warming survival benefits. They also may become motivated by the great evolutionary adventure of being one of the new Evolutioneers (individuals or groups who choose to be co-creators) of the Great Global Rebirth no matter how difficult.
While individuals who chose this second option are preparing and adapting, they also might be doing everything they can to get our governments to finally enforce the life-critical 2025 targets to reduce global fossil fuel use.
Option 3: Other individuals have decided to accept the collapse and probable extinction situation (described here) as it is. Their goal is simple. They want to use the remaining time they have that is still relatively stable to live as meaningfully and as enjoyably life as is possible.
They have decided to live within a smaller, more controllable life scale. This is because they believe that the bigger life-scale of global collapse and extinction is entirely out of their control. They may also believe that pushing our governments to radically and immediately reduce global fossil fuel use at this late stage is a waste of their time, energy, and resources.
Instead, they want to use their remaining time and environmental stability to put their affairs in order and start living their remaining dreams or "bucket lists."
In one way or another, individuals who choose this option have decided that now is the perfect time to drop out of the modern "consume and waste" social rat race and tune in to what is truly important with their remaining time! Younger people who have chosen this option also may decide that it is not ethical to have more children. This is because they know what we face and there is a high probability their children will have painful short lives.
Option 4: Many people combine and customize their self-chosen elements from the three strategies above as time and resources permit.
No Blame or Judgement, But...
In such an extreme and challenging situation as we now find ourselves, our organization does not blame or render judgment upon any individuals or groups choosing any of the above options. However, we have many helpful adaptation suggestions and survival recommendations for anyone who chooses option two above. (You can find them both here and in the Members section of our website.)
Even though we do not blame or judge, our organization forwards the position that because of love or enlightened self-interest, each of us should act deliberatively to slow and lessen what is coming so more individuals can live longer and more stably.
Here is what we mean by this. If you love nature and the planet, you should allow that love to motivate you to act slow and lessen this emergency. But, on the other hand, at the minimum, we believe ALL individuals and organizations, out of wise self-interest, have an ethical and moral duty to sustain nature and the earth because nature and the earth have sustained them through their many resources.
The "We-Will-Survive no matter what" delusions of ultra-wealthy individuals, corporate executives, politicians, and nations
No wealthy individual, corporation, or nation will be able to use its wealth to escape the escalating instability, chaos, collapse, and coming mass extinction!
From what many of you may have read so far on our website, you can see that we are in a no-win game if we do not get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. Yet, there are always those wealthy and arrogant individuals, corporations, and nations who will believe their vast wealth and power will somehow still insulate and save them from what is coming.
Despite wealthy individuals and corporations already buying land and facilities in safer northern countries, they will not be safe there either. The mass migrations of desperate, aggressive, and armed climagees (climate refugees) and national armies will eventually overrun any safer nation border security measures. These locked-out climagees will angrily take their share of what's left and severely punish anyone who they even remotely believe had any significant part in letting this horrific global warming-related catastrophe occur either by acts of commission or by failing to act (acts of omission.)
Eventually, even the private security companies of the ultra-wealthy individuals and corporations hired to protect their secret compounds in the global warming safer zones will ultimately turn against their affluent bosses. They will realize they live in a new world, where only firepower, brute strength, and military-style training determine an individual's or groups' day-to-day survival, absolute ownership, and safety.
Not unlike Holocaust survivors, climagee survivors will also relentlessly hunt down anyone they believe knew about the extinction emergency and had the influence or resources to address it but did not. Those individuals, corporations, and politicians will most certainly lose all of their financial and political power and resources in the massive globalized backlash of anger and punishment that will be directed toward exclusively at them.
There will be no place on Earth or Swiss bank that will save them and their assets from what will be viewed by the survivors as justifiable punishment for their gross, global warming crimes against the survival of the whole of humanity.
Things will be even worse for wealthy corporations, individuals, or nations who act in ways to profit from the escalating global warming catastrophes, real estate or market crashes, and the coming 20 worst global warming consequences as they are unfolding. When those wealthy individuals, corporate executives, or politicians are identified by enraged climagee survivors, ALL of their wealth will likely be removed or clawed back from their trusts, secret bank accounts, businesses (and even their heirs.) It is also highly likely that such super-responsible individuals, corporate executives, and politicians will be put into hard labor camps for the rest of their lives.
As you can see, there is no actual survival for the ultra-wealthy, big corporations, or wealthy nations if they continue to let this catastrophe unfold.
Additionally, please do not mistake that the Job One for Humanity organization promotes any form of an illegal individual climagee survivor or group vengeance against wealthy corporations, individuals, politicians, or nations in any way whatsoever or at any time! All we are disclosing here is these are the most probable and natural anger reactions by surviving individuals who have suffered unthinkable consequences and the pain of losing everyone and everything they have ever loved because of the greed and omissions of a few.
Our organization promotes and believes only in the peaceful execution of fair and equitable justice by impartial individuals, properly constructed courts, and the rule of law.
As an organization, we hold that what is happening now (allowing global warming to worsen to total extinction levels is ultimately a matter of ignorance. Of course, global warming is complicated to understand in the first place. Still, the chosen ignorance of personal greed or excessive personal comfort being valued over the common well-being of society as a whole makes solving this life and death challenge even worse.
We only mention these undesirable outcomes for those ultra-wealthy individuals, corporations, and politicians who act to make matters worse or fail to act. We do it in the hope that through this educational warning, those wealthy individuals, corporations, politicians, and nations will wake up to the fact that this emergency is the ultimate no-win game, even for them.
At some point, we hope that even the world's wealthiest individuals, corporations, and nations will recognize their money and power won't save them from this monster. They will realize that we either work together, or we die together.
We only hope the ultra-wealthy do not discover this truth before it is too late to do anything about it.

Key Climate Change Migration and Relocation Factors. Everything you need to know about climate change migration and relocation.
Almost every day is the global news you are hearing about record-breaking storms, flooding, rain bombs, heat waves, hurricanes, sea-level rise, droughts, and wildfires. As a result, more and more people are thinking, "should they consider relocation of migration because of climate change."
Climate change relocation is a very different thing than climate change migration. First, relocation is far less complicated. Relocation is simply relocating out of a climate change and global warming high-risk area to a lower risk area.
Climate change migration to a global warming safer area is far more complex. There are dozens of global warming and other related factors that must be evaluated carefully, from your age, the relocation demographics, to how long you are hoping to survive.
Along with our other relocation and migration evaluation pages on our website, the new information on this page will also help individuals, businesses, farmers, and even winemakers continue evaluating if they need to relocate or migrate and if so, plan when and where to do it. At the end of this page, you will find your next logical action step.
Brutal Truths About Climate Change and Global Warming Relocation
US Governors (like Gavin Newsome and his state climate advisors) are doing a great disservice to the citizens of their states by not telling them essential information about how bad global warming is going to get. This dangerous omission hides critical information state citizens will need to decide if they will need to relocate or migrate. Failure to provide this urgently needed information exposes their state's citizens to grave and unnecessary financial losses and possibly death.
But, what are those hard truths our governors and politicians are not telling us?
1. The consequences of climate change and global warming are going to get a lot worse! These consequences (worsening storms, heatwaves, flooding, rain bombs, droughts, and wildfires,) will become more severe, more frequent, and they will range over larger and larger areas far faster than what you are being told. Additionally, these intensifying consequences will last for many decades, if not much longer.
2. If you live on the coast or a lake, or in or near a river flood plain, massive rain bombs or sea-level rise enhanced tides will flood you out more frequently and more severely as time passes. You will also experience the exhaustion and frustration of more mandatory evaluations and evaluation alerts, as well as more scheduled and unscheduled power outages. (Planning based on 100-year flood plains no longer is relevant. Instead, we now face extreme storms, rain bombs, and flooding that has not been seen for thousands of years.)
3. If you live in a drought and wildfire area, you will experience wildfires and drought more frequently and severely as time passes. Global warming-fueled wildfires and wildfire smoke are predicted to increase worldwide by 50-100% over the following years. The wildfires will cover larger and larger regions until all easy-to-ignite forest fuel has been burned. One of the worst areas in the US will be the Sierra mountain areas of California.
Sierra mountain resort areas like Lake Tahoe face a challenging, uncertain, and expensive future. However, informed property owners in high-risk areas are already cutting their coming real estate losses and getting out of those properties before losing too much of their current value.
Something to think about from a recent blog post. "The West Coast is on fire, and covered in smoke. Tens of millions are breathing poisoned air, and are desperately asking “Is my family safe? Should I leave town? Should I move permanently? How much worse will these fires get? Will I be stuck breathing this smoke forever?”
Droughts in many areas of the world like the megadrought in the Western US will also become more frequent, severe and cover larger and larger areas. Because of the wildfires, you will also experience the exhaustion and frustration of more mandatory evaluations and evaluation alerts, as well as more scheduled and unscheduled power outages.
In addition to flooding and wildfires, expanding and extended droughts and heatwaves will also make farming, winemaking, and just living in many US and foreign areas far more difficult, if not altogether untenable. (In the not too distant future we can expect 30 or more days of 100 degrees or more during the growing season of many areas.)
4. As the many consequences of climate change and global warming worsen, the following will happen:
a. insurance companies in global warming high-risk areas will rapidly raise rates and soon stop insuring properties in the highest-risk areas.
b. Real estate and business prices in global warming high-risk areas will steadily fall until a sudden large number of individuals begin moving simultaneously. When this happens, real estate and business prices will suddenly fall steeply or crash.
c. In areas where insurance companies have canceled individual or business insurance because of global warming risks, it will become more difficult to sell real estate or businesses, and real estate or businesses prices will crash.
d. Real estate and business prices in global warming safer areas will steadily rise. As a result, you could be priced out of these areas if you wait too long to evaluate and act.
The critical omissions by our politicians mean there are hundreds of thousands of individuals and businesses that are already playing a long-term lose/lose game and who should be making relocation or migration plans because it is not going to get better.
Many individuals and businesses in high-risk areas have been flooded or burned out several times and still stay in that location and rebuild. This failure to relocate is because they also are "relying" on the omissions of our politicians. Unfortunately, these critical omissions avoid telling us how bad global warming already is or how bad it will get. (One day, these destructive omissions will be called actionable crimes as more people and businesses suffer as global warming worsens.)
If you do not want to be one of the uninformed who waits too long to evaluate relocation or migration and later loses most or all of the value of your home or business, it is time to take a look at your real global warming future by clicking here then continue reading below.
What you are not being told and people least understand about the accelerating global warming consequences
Something important to remember is that as global warming continues and we cross more and more global warming tipping points, the worst global warming consequences will increase in frequency, scale and they will increase faster and faster, but they will not grow gradually and linearly. They will grow exponentially!
(In the graph below, the red line is an example of a linear, somewhat steady, and predictable gradual global warming consequence growth trajectory. (Linear progression equals 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, etc.)
The green line below is an example of a sudden, exponential, and highly unpredictable global warming consequence growth trajectory. (Exponential progression equals 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 264, etc.)
The exponential growth of global warming consequences means that few individuals, businesses, NGOs, corporations, or governments will be able to manage or compensate for these rapidly escalating consequences for very long. It also means that unless you have made your emergency preparations long before global warming consequences grow exponentially, you will probably not have the time to do so once they do. (Remember the mad rush of unprepared people for toilet paper and masks at the beginning of the pandemic.)
This getting caught unprepared danger will also exist because the social, economic, and political systems will become exponentially more unpredictable, unstable, and chaotic once global warming enters the global warming exponential curve (the green line above.).
If you have not prepared for exponential global warming consequence growth, you will find yourself in a living hell!
There is one additional factor invisibly feeding the exponential growth of global warming consequences. It is the already existing carbon and methane climate momentum. We have put so much carbon and methane into the atmosphere since the beginning of the Industrial revolution, the self-reinforcing and self-amplifying effect of this climate momentum will keep pushing global warming towards exponential acceleration for decades. No matter what we do!
How to Evaluate if You Should Migrate to a Safer Global Warming Area
The next evaluation steps of the Job One Plan for relocation and Migration are found in our Climate Change and Global Warming Migration Manual. This manual also includes detailed information on how, when, and where to select the best remaining safer locations for US and global Migration. This manual also offers essential advice on where not to migrate.
It is costly and time-consuming to migrate to any new location. However, you want to be sure you have all the best and most current information before making that challenging decision. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you also use the extensive member section of this website to complete your relocation and migration evaluation.
For example, the relocation and migration map (just below) will be explained in detail in five additional pages in our member's migration evaluation section. In this area, we also have included a six-page migration land and home purchase checklist. (It took us three years and 12 weeks of staff travel to the many global warming safer areas to create this migration checklist and the related migration information.)
Unfortunately, many global warming safer locations are already being bought by hedge funds, ultra-wealthy individuals, and investment banks. Worse yet, migration restrictions in many nations keep getting more restrictive. Therefore, it is critical to determine as quickly as possible if you, your family, or your business will need to relocate or migrate in the foreseeable future!
Our Challenge: If you still do not believe global warming will get a lot worse and directly or indirectly affect your life!
Don't believe us, but do this to cover your bases. You will find over 40 primary and secondary consequences of accelerating global warming emergency on this page.
Make a copy of these consequences and put them somewhere you can find them. Then watch and listen to the news.
Whenever you hear about another one of these consequences occurring or worsening, make a mark next to it on your copy. It won't be long before you too realize that things are going in the wrong direction, and people living or working in high-risk areas need to consider relocation as a wise long-term stability option.
Almost every climate change consequence, such as record-breaking storms, flooding, rain bombs, heat waves, hurricanes, sea-level rise, droughts, and the wildfires that you are already experiencing (or soon will be), will steadily increase in frequency, severity, and the scale of the affected region.
Do you really want to bet that you are super-lucky and can beat the hard science on this? Do you want to bet your family's or business's survival and financial future on trying to ride out an ever-intensifying climate change nightmare?

How to Know Where and When to Migrate because of Global Warming and Climate Change Part 1: The Overview
There are currently seven pages in our Climate Change Migration and Relocation manual to consider. Think of them as your personal climate change migration guide or manual containing all of the evaluation information, checksheets, etc., you will need.
We strongly recommend carefully reviewing all climate change migration and relocation-related guide pages before deciding to relocate and migrate. It will save you a lot of needless worries, expenses, or "buyer's regret."
In these "how-to" pages, you will find many questions and current global warming prediction information that will help you decide if you should consider climate change migration or relocation, and if so, when and where. These pages will also lay out a sequence of crucial actions steps you can begin immediately.
And finally, this climate change migration manual also contains age-related migration information. How old you are will make a big difference in experiencing the worst consequences of the global warming emergency as they unfold.
Global Warming Migration and Relocation
Knowing when to migrate because of global warming and the other 11 escalating global crises is as important as knowing where to migrate! If you have chosen to remain where you are in an urban, suburban, or rural area and ride out what is coming for as long as possible before you migrate, or you have chosen to migrate, here is some additional information that should help you make the "when to move" decision.
1. If you have not done so already, please go to this page and copy both sets of the 47 detailed catastrophes, extinction, and collapse warming signs and post them somewhere you can review them regularly. As you continue to watch your local, national, and international news, be aware of which warning signs are starting to occur. Be particularly aware of which warning signs are increasing in frequency, severity, or scale.
Depending upon your current location, at some point, while watching these many warning signs accelerate and occur, it will become apparent to you that you have entered your particular "must migrate soon" window of opportunity. Part of determining your personal migration window of opportunity is to estimate how long it will take you to:
a. Find the right location to move to. (As things worsen, more and more people will realize that if they do not move, they will suffer or die. Real estate prices also will drop faster and faster in the global warming unsafe areas. Real estate prices will rise faster and faster in safer global warming areas.)
b. have enough time to pack and move there.
c. have enough time to buy or build and set up your new home as described in Part 2 of the Job One Survive and Thrive Plan, i.e., garden, solar or wind systems, sewage, water collection, etc.
2. The following timeline chart, when used with the 47 warning signs lists and the other information on migration on this page and in the member's section, will also help you narrow it down for when it is the right time to move your family or business.
a. The 5-year deadline: (From now until the end of 2025.) We still have enough time left to slow down (but not avoid) a mid-century mass extinction event for much of humanity. Although we can no longer avoid mass extinction, we still can maintain some level of control of our global warming future to prevent total extinction!
To avoid total extinction, we must make radical global fossil fuel reductions immediately and still come very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. (After you prepare your emergency provisions and create or join urban, suburban, or rural eco-community cooperatives and sanctuaries, our extinction danger means we have to educate others in the world about the global warming climate cliff and tipping points. Within these first 5-years, if you are in a high-risk location, land prices in the safer areas will start rising at a faster rate.)
b. The 5-10-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) From 2020 to 2027, global warming consequences will steadily worsen in a rising but linear progression. More people will migrate. Millions more will die because of climate-related catastrophes.
If you have prepared, adapted, and are in a global warming safer location before 2027 and have a good Plan B in place, depending upon your location, relative stability and security for family and business are probable until 2030 to 2040. (See this Plan B page, which discusses how to prepare 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 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) After 2030-2035 many other climate, human, ecological, political, and economic tipping points will be crossed due to global warming, and most of these 11 other critical global challenges will worsen. The stability and security of even the safest and best prepared global warming safer locations will lessen and become increasingly challenging. Those individuals in supportive cooperatives or eco-communities should be significantly safer and better adapted than those who are not.
d. The 15-25 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) Beginning around 2030, the frequency, severity, and size of 20 worst global warming consequences will move from a rising linear progression into an exponential progression. Stability and security for even the safest and best prepared, safer global warming locations, cooperatives, and eco-communities will become far more difficult and dangerous.
e. The 25-30-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) By mid-century, mass extinction for much of humanity is unavoidable. From 2030-2050 will be the riskiest period to survive for much to most of society. Generally, things will be better in safer global warming locations, cooperatives, and eco-communities. Even there, survival is far from guaranteed without the highest preparation, adaptation, and cooperation levels.
f. The 50-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) We will face the worst consequences of runaway global warming, and we will be heading toward the beginning of the runaway greenhouse gas effect, which ripped the atmosphere off Venus. Because of this escalating runaway global warming reality, humanity will face a total extinction event (what we describe as the Climageddon Scenario) beginning as soon as 2070-2100.
The tipping point and the exponential growth factors that will also affect your when to move calculations
When you are doing your "when to migrate calculations," do not forget that global warming consequences will continue to escalate in frequency, severity, and scale. At some point, this escalation will go from a linear and gradual progression to an exponential progression as more tipping points are crossed. Once this happens, it will be far more difficult and expensive to migrate.
To familiarize yourself with these timeframe accelerators, we recommend you review the following:
Your first crucial action step
If you have not already read Part 1 of the Job One Plan, which is about getting prepared for what is coming, please do so before you continue to read the rest of the materials in the Relocation and Migration evaluation sections by clicking here. Please also keep reading this manual as you work on the action steps in part one.
For the Next Page of the Relocation and Migration Evaluation Materials
All of the information that we are providing on the Climate Change Migration or Relocation Evaluation Checksheets (#1-7) are there to help you reach a highly informed personal position on the migration issue.
More About will you need to relocate or migrate and if so, where and you will migrate?
You and your children are here today solely because your genetic ancestors were smart enough to see the early warning signs of a serious disaster that was going to hit them hard! They were smart enough to know when it was time to start preparing backup supplies. They were smart enough to know when it was finally time to move and migrate to get out of the way of what they could not prepare for or adapt to.
Currently, multinational corporations and the ultra-wealthy are secretly far ahead of the curve compared to the rest of us in global warming extinction emergency preparation and migration plans and preparation. Their top risk and investment advisers, who can access privately created, ridiculously expensive, and confidential global warming and climate research have already aggressively warned them to prepare for the many escalating consequences of global warming (aka climate change,)described in the Climageddon Extinction Scenario. In fact, they are even being advised on how to profit from the global warming extinction emergency and how it will dramatically affect things such as real estate and stock market values.
Many ultra-wealthy and very smart individuals, corporations, and nations (such as Saudi Arabia) have already quietly purchased vast amounts of arable and defendable land in the safest areas of Canada, Scandinavia, Russia, Ukraine, Alaska, the tip of South America, Greenland, Iceland, England, and the south island of New Zealand. This land is for their own high-security survival compounds.
If the wealthiest individuals, corporations, and nations are already preparing to protect themselves from the escalating global warming extinction emergency mostly under the cover of secrecy, why aren't you doing the same? Why should only the ultra-wealthy and the very smart who are currently living in global warming unsafe locations have the necessary information and emergency resources in place to save themselves, their loved ones, and their assets long before the rest of us?
Being unprepared for evolution’s periods of emergency, catastrophic mistakes, or natural disasters is dangerously unrealistic. Human history is littered with corpses from the natural, economic, political, and social catastrophes that our smartest ancestors were prepared for and our less than observant unprepared ancestors were not. Do not ever forget the deep evolutionary truth:
your gene pool is here today solely because your smart ancestors saw the early warning signs and were prepared enough to survive or avoid the worst.
Shrewd individuals could argue convincingly that based on humanity’s extensive history of past large-scale challenges, humanity, in general, will not respond to this global warming extinction emergency until it is too late, or the suffering and pain is so horribly severe that many of us will not survive to enjoy its eventual solution. History overflows with examples of individuals, families, businesses, and nations that did not adapt and change their behavior until the pain of going forward was less than the pain of staying where they were. Unfortunately, that was often too late to prevent widespread suffering or death or the collapse of the economic, political, or social systems of those times.
(If you're one of those individuals who has to know all of the historical facts and principles on the proven advance warning signs for when a society is going to collapse, we strongly recommend you read The Collapse of Complex Societies by professor Joseph A. Tainter. When you add those proven archeological warning signs of collapsed societies to the global warming extinction emergency warning signs described on this Job One website or in the Climageddon book, there will be little remaining doubt about the wisdom of quickly getting you and your loved ones ready for the system collapses that will be inevitable as global warming continues to escalate.)
To migrate or not to migrate?
Ultimately, migration is a personal decision no matter what age you are. In the following section, we are not promoting or endorsing any form of illegal migration. If you take the following information to heart, and you qualify for the regulations of any of the global warming safe countries there still should be plenty of time left for you to legally migrate.
We strongly advise against any attempt to migrate illegally. The nations of the north are already tightening up their immigration laws and requirements, strengthening their border patrols, and increasing the severity of penalties for any form of attempted illegal migration.
In addition to the many reasons discussed in this document, if you currently are in a global warming unsafe zone, you should think long and hard about migrating to a global warming safer zone, especially if you plan on helping us fight for the future of humanity and our civilization by working to get our governments to mandate immediate radical cuts in fossil fuel use. Here's why:
1. It's going to be a long battle to save the future and to go the distance. To be effective you'll need to be in a stable and safe place and become very sustainable for the duration of this "war."
2. If you're not in a relatively stable location and personally well prepared for the coming chain of global warming consequences and emergencies, which will be increasing in scale, severity, and frequency, it is unlikely you will be able to work consistently to help slow the fossil fuel use that will ultimately save us.
If this or anything else in this document applies to your situation and desires, then the time to begin planning your legal migration is now!
The following factors are some helpful things to consider if you are thinking about migrating to safer global warming zones.
1. Mobility will be a key life-saving capability during the worst aspects of the global warming extinction emergency and the second and third Climageddon Extinction Scenario phases. Our crisis-surviving ancestors have repeatedly proven the validity and importance of the mobility principle.
The worst escalating global warming projections point to an average global temperature increase of 4°-6° Celsius (7.2°-10.8° Fahrenheit). This makes having a backup long-term migration plan a must for numerous reasons.
We're going to hit the middle Climageddon Extinction Scenario phases (3 and probably 4) no matter what we do. Therefore, planning to migrate to extend your life and its quality a little longer is an essential major life decision that should be carefully considered by evaluating one's current location, all of one's personal circumstances, and the best projections for how the global warming extinction emergency will affect your particular location over the coming years. You can also stagger the steps and levels of this emergency migration plan to meet the speed of global temperature increases, sea level rises, the closing of national borders to climagees (climate migrants,) and the increases in severity, scale, and frequency of all of the other global warming consequences as they occur in your particular area.
Create a 30-day emergency migration plan and then extend it out to 60, 90, and 120 days or longer. Keep in mind that it is very difficult to migrate during the actual crisis when everyone else is trying to migrate as well. One can see examples of this in many of today’s war zone migrations.
It is essential to also include self-defense supplies in your emergency preparations supplies and in your migration plans. This is because as we proceed through the mid to later phases of the Climageddon Extinction Scenario (3-5) local, regional, and national governments and law and order will begin to break down and you will need to become fully self-reliant for your own physical protection. Having at least one firearm per adult with adequate ammunition (1,000 rounds) for extensive transitional periods of resource conflict and chaos will is essential in the highly unsafe mid to later phases of the Climageddon Extinction Scenario.
If you are under 30 and you and your family want to survive longer and safer in relative peace, you will want to move far north or far south long before the worst of this emergency hits and real estate prices crash in the unsafe zones and soar in the safe zones. If you are under 30, you will want to migrate from unsafe zones within the next 10 years or sooner, or you will probably be priced out or locked out of climagee closed borders.
With 10 more years of ever-escalating global warming catastrophes even the deniers, the distracted and less aware members of society will know that what is occurring is not natural weather variance or 100-year storms, but something far more dangerous. Once the general population realizes how screwed they are because they waited too long to heed the growing warning signs there will be rush mass migration and unimaginable transitional chaos.
If you are 30 or under and you do not think you need to migrate soon read the two books by Octavia Butler mentioned further down this page. Most people have not yet realized that the single most dangerous human consequence of global warming is the violent transitional chaos of a sudden mass migration of unprepared and desperate starving climagees. This sudden and massive climagee migration alone will make the dystopian Mad Max world depicted in the movies look like a day at the beach.
If you are over 30 without a family or, if you are older than 50, you may feel that because of your lack of dependents or shorter life expectancy, migration to extend either the quality, comfort, or length of your life may not be practical or necessary, no matter how bad it gets. If you believe you will not migrate no matter what, we understand and support you in this.
Additionally, climate justice dictates that we voluntarily save the very limited global warmer safer areas for those 30 and younger. Additionally, it is the older generations who have most allowed this well-known nightmare to spin out of control, and it is the older generations who should take the worst medicine.
2. In general, moving north of the 45th parallel or south of the 45th parallel should be the safest, but always check the most current and updated computer models and predictions because some areas above the 45 parallel north, particularly in Europe, will still be unsafe. “Safety” considerations always should include the availability of water and mass migration route defensibility. Some existing areas between the 45th parallel north and south will remain safe and viable longer because of unique localized changes in seasonal weather patterns, ocean currents, temperatures, and the jet stream. Use the map below to get a better idea of safe and unsafe zones.
Keep in mind that some areas near or above the 45th parallel north and south will not be safe and viable also because of unique localized changes in seasonal weather patterns, ocean currents, temperatures, and the jet stream affecting those areas as well. In general, you also do not want to live too much above the 55th parallel north or the 55th parallel south.
Above those areas, temperatures are rising about twice as fast which means the environment will be changing twice as fast and, the normal global warming worst consequences will be appearing twice as fast. Particularly worrisome is the tundra and permafrost releasing not only huge amounts of methane, but also lethal viruses and bacteria that have existed for hundreds of thousands of years before humans walked the earth, and for which, humanity has no immunities. Also trapped within the permafrost and tundra in rotting carcasses, are things like smallpox, anthrax, and other diseases that's few in the far north or far south will be prepared for.
In general, the Goldilocks zone between the 45th and 55th parallel north and the 45th and 55th parallel south will likely be the safest areas to ride out the global warming extinction emergency as long as we make the required radical fossil fuel cuts immediately. There are also other critical land purchase factors that we have written about in detail in the Six Rules of Real Estate Investment in the Age of Escalating Global Warming that also might make these generally safe far northern or far southern areas unsafe. (Be sure to read this article before buying any land you may want to use for migration!)
In general, predicting which areas will be most adversely affected can be difficult because of continuous global warming changes and the increasing variety of escalating global warming consequences. Many climate researchers and specialized big data research services are already trying to predict these safest zones for various investment banking houses, commodity traders, national governments, and the ultra-wealthy.
Where ever you decide to go you will need a defensible or isolated position far from the most logical mass migration routes from south to north, lots of water availability, and the ability to grow all the food you will need during every season of the year. Within about 10 years crop failures will be at such a level that not only will food prices soar to a huge percentage of your budget, it is also likely that many food items will not be available at all at any price.
Anywhere between the two yellow lines in the map further above, in general, will be an unsafe zone as global warming escalates. There will, of course, be unique and rare microclimates between the two yellow 45th parallel north and 45th parallel south lines (above,) where there will be water and it will be naturally cooler because of elevation or location and where you will be more isolated and safe and off the major and dangerous northerly mass migration routes. (If you locate one of these rare microclimates in the generally unsafer areas, you may still be able to survive for quite a while.)
As long as the following countries have adequate freshwater supplies and you do not locate too to close to the sea coasts and they have the other critical qualities mentioned on this page, countries like Canada, Scandinavia, Russia, Iceland, Greenland, England, Switzerland, Northern France, Germany, Northern Ukraine, Northern Italy, Northern Herzegovina, Northern Serbia, Northern Bosnia, Northern Romania, Northern Kazakhstan, Northern Uzbekistan, Northern China, Mongolia, Northern Japan and the tip of South America and Alaska will most likely experience a warmer and longer growing season and improved weather conditions in the early stages of the global warming extinction emergency. Other areas like Southern Tasmania and the South Island of New Zealand should also be safe far longer than other areas of the southern hemisphere.
In the United States only four of these states lie entirely or almost entirely north of the 45th parallel, they are Alaska, Washington, Montana, and North Dakota. Here are all of the states very near or at least partially above the 45th parallel. Remember they all offer different levels of migration safety depending primarily upon how well they do on all the other safe zone criteria mentioned on this page:
Wyoming Close to the Montana border,
Minnesota – above Minneapolis,
Wisconsin – above a line from Minneapolis to Green Bay,
Upper Peninsula Michigan,
Lower Peninsula Michigan above the 45th parallel,
Approximately 13 million Americans live north of the 45th parallel or 4% of our population. A reasonable population estimate for north of the 45th parallel elsewhere around the world is about 370 million in Europe, about 200 million in the former USSR, and 30 million in Canada, for a total of 600 million, or 10% of the world's population.
North Korea, Japan, China, and India, as well as the Central Asian republics, are almost all to the south of 45th parallel except Mongolia. Unfortunately, Mongolia has a huge water shortage problem namely the Gobi desert. When you think that these areas north of the 45th parallel often have poor soils, shorter growing seasons, and can only support limited additional populations, one can begin to see how this crisis will unfold as food shortages sweep the world and the Great Migration to the north accelerates.
As global warming escalates, the above-listed global warming safe countries and locations will most likely become the richest and most powerful nations on earth because of their more climate-safe locations and new “friendly” warming. These countries will likely form new military alliances that will initially attempt to ensure that other global-warming-challenged nations will not be able to take their land and sovereignty. The global warming-challenged nations who may be locked out of the safer above or below the 45th parallel locations will eventually be motivated to extremely aggressive behavior because of starvation and chaos within their borders.
The following two additional links contain more detailed interactive maps of the US and where many global warming consequences will have the most significant impacts over the next 10-40 years. When you see global warming consequences in color it has a more tangible impact than just numbers.
Click here to see the ProPublica color-coded interactive global warming consequence and migration maps.
Click here to read the NY Times article on global warming migrations with some county by county consequence mapping.
Click here for an insurance evaluation of global warming high-risk areas in the US.
Job One strongly recommends you review the above two interactive maps if you are considering global warming-related migration anytime over the next 5-15 years. When using them, please keep in mind that these maps are based upon the UN's Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC) data. And, this data is regularly underestimated by 20-40 percent. That underestimation factor means that the above two global warming consequence maps are also considerably underestimated in relation to future global warming consequence severity and locations.
This underestimation issue also means any timeframes for the consequences illustrated in these two maps are also off by at least 20-40 percent. (This page on the Job One site shows a far more accurate picture of coming global warming consequences and timetables.
In spite of their underestimation limitations, the above two interactive color-coded global warming consequence maps are still quite beneficial for a general visualization of where you do not want to be within the US as things get worse faster and faster.
How soon do you really need to begin preparing, adapting and/or migrating at or from your current location?
(Please note that this section does not take into account how soon prices could soar in global warming safe zones as more people realize they must migrate to extend their lives or, how soon prices will crash in global warming unsafe areas as more people abandon them.)
How fast global warming gets significantly worse from where we are today and how much time we have left before the 20 worst global warming consequences as well as crossing more global warming tipping points begins to directly affect you, your family, business or nation depends completely on your current location and on how fast how many other people also realize we are on a sinking ship and they need to do something fast.
Some of you are already regularly experiencing many severe global warming consequences. If you currently live close to the seashores, (flooding,) forests (wildfires,) deserts or drier areas (drought,) or other areas that are experiencing severe heat waves, land and ocean 100-year and 1,000-year super-storms hurricanes and cyclones, rain bombs, severe seasonal or monsoon changes, droughts, crop failures, climate conflicts, and early-stage climate-related migrations, you are already experiencing a small part of what is yet to come!
As part of this phenomenon, you may also already be experiencing precautionary evacuations in your area because the above global warming-related consequences are becoming more frequent and the local authorities are trying to get ahead of the next crisis. The more individuals and businesses that experience either the above consequences or the precautionary evacuations that will grow more and more frequent because of these consequences, the more they will say enough is enough and this is no way to live a stable life or run the business. Once they come to that conclusion, it will not be long afterward that they begin the process of migration to safer global warming zones.
Unfortunately, consequence severity, scale, and frequency will increase more rapidly within the next 5-10 years in the areas between the 25th parallel north and the 25th parallel south. The earliest signs in these areas will be soaring food prices, failed crops, and growing malnutrition and starvation not to mention soaring heat and the many other global warming-related consequences scaling up.
Within the next 10 to 15 years, the areas of increasing consequence severity, scale, and frequency will also begin to expand rapidly throughout the areas between the 35th parallel north and the 35th parallel south. The consequences that will scale in these areas will be similar but will in general, scale up slower than the consequences occurring in the areas between the 25th parallel north and south.
Within 15 to 20 years, normal life will become much more unstable and chaotic for those unfortunate individuals and businesses still trying to live or operate not near or above the 45th parallel north or near or below the 45th parallel south. There are some early warning signs to particularly watch for in all three of the above zones. They are property values dropping rapidly in the unsafe global warming areas and insurance companies significantly raising rates or dropping coverage for properties and businesses in the ever-expanding unsafe global warming areas.
The important thing to remember is that depending upon where you are currently located, there still should be adequate time left to prepare, adapt and/or migrate. There is no reason to panic, but there is also no time left to procrastinate or delay in getting started to prepare for, adapt to and/or migrate away from the unavoidable consequences.
As you will soon see in all of the parts of the Job One Plan, there is much to be done before our current escalating global warming extinction emergency creates a "hell on earth" as James Hansen says it will as our temperatures continue to rise.
Do not forget that delayed action or inaction could be very costly. Many of the world's wealthiest individuals have already purchased and stocked their global warming safe locations with everything they will need. Numerous climate scientists and climate researchers, as well as some of the smartest people in the world, have also already started and/or completed many of the action steps below.
Do not forget that governments and nonprofit organizations will run out of money and won't be able to help their citizens recover or deal with the escalating catastrophes as soon as the mid phases (phases 3-4) of the Climageddon Extinction Scenario are reached. Long before the truth about how bad global warming has become (or will become,) is publicly known or acknowledged by our government officials and the military, they and their families will have already secretly prepared and fully stocked their own special and secure safe haven locations.
The saving of the key politicians and the military first will always be done for the good of preserving the respective nation because these individuals will be deemed "essential personnel for the future." The rest of us nonessential citizens who have not also prepared or migrated to safe zones will, of course, be left out in the heat, and on our own to fend for ourselves in the ensuing chaos.
To make matters worse as things continue breaking down in society, the politicians and military will always "requisition" the involving safest locations and best resources for themselves from anywhere they can get them! This includes whatever you have prepared or stored no matter where you end up finally located unless you are extremely isolated or invisible.
The following steps will help you both plan and begin your time-critical preparation, adaptation and/or migration actions so you don't get caught unprepared, unaware, or vulnerable.
a. Depending on your current and ultimate location, financial loss, and death tolls from global warming-related catastrophes will continue to rise steadily until we reached what we call the last phases of the Climageddon Extinction Scenario. These are the phases where as much as 70-90% of the world's total population will begin dying within as little as 30-50 years. This will occur primarily because of more crossed tipping points (carbon 500 ppm and carbon 600 ppm,) as well as starvation, migration wars, civil unrest, and many of the other 20 worst global warming consequences.
Please keep in mind that during this remaining time window to prepare, adapt, or migrate, we will still have control of a good portion of our lives, far longer than those individuals who deny, ignore, or are unaware of the new reality that global warming has become out of meaningful control for at least the next 30-50 years.
If you choose to migrate, the good news is that depending on your current location, most of us will have at least 5-10 more years to migrate before:
1. We cross the carbon 425-450 ppm level where we cross more global warming tipping points at an even faster rate and where entering late phase 2 and then phase 3 of the Climageddon Scenario is highly probable. (Once we cross into those Climageddon Scenario phases, first millions then eventually tens if not hundreds of millions of informed and prudent individuals across the world will be highly motivated migrate to save their loved ones and businesses and to stay ahead of the ever-escalating catastrophe curve. This also means the prices for safe land will skyrocket and less and less safe land will be available. It will also mean that land and real estate prices in unsafe areas will begin to tumble.)
2. Temporarily safer areas and countries will begin charging millions of dollars per person to migrate legally or buy adequate safe land or, they will otherwise restrict or completely close their borders to the ever-escalating masses of new climagees.
Depending upon your current location, trying to migrate to one of these temporarily safer areas after we breach the carbon 425-450 ppm boundary (in as little as 5-10 years,) is a plan that will be plagued with avoidable hardship and suffering. It is not that the worst consequences of global warming will all be upon us in just 5-10 years, it is that by that time the wealthiest or smartest early adopters all over the world will more clearly see what is coming and will be highly motivated to move.
Even if the wealthiest or smartest early adopters and migrators are initially only 1 or 2 % of the earth's population, that is still 70-140 million climagees migrating nearly at once. If you think that the advice of not getting caught migrating too late is bad advice or an overstatement, consider just the hundreds of thousands of drought, economic or political migrants from Africa and the Middle East who have been struggling and dying in recent years trying to get into Europe, Scandinavia, Germany, or England.
One thing you can count on. As global warming worsens and more people recognize how bad it is, the country with the safest land will continue to increase border restrictions until borders finally close. These countries will be forced to deal with the reality that they will have only so much decent land that will grow only so much food that will feed only a limited number of people. Once their populations reach the point where the land will not support adequate food production all borders will close.
Please further note that if you think you may be subject to any kind of religious, racial, or ethnic bias trying to immigrate to a safe zone, migrating sooner may be critical because many additional immigration restrictions will be imposed quickly as safe zone nations realize that they are experiencing a mass climagee migration for which they are wholly not prepared.
You will also need to be highly certain that the rain, water sources, soils, and growing seasons will be adequate in the area you want to migrate to.
Carefully consider issues like wildfires, sea-level rise, floodplains of rivers and lakes, as well as how defensible and safe your new location or nation will be as desperate climagees seek safety in the later phases of the Climageddon Extinction Scenario. Additionally, if you are considering migrating out of your home country, you will need to evaluate how your new country will receive, treat, and protect you as a new immigrant. Unfortunately, in many countries, immigrants are often treated as second-class citizens.
Essential to any decision regarding whether to migrate or not and when is also to evaluate if the new location you select will also work for your long-term future—even if there were not a global warming extinction emergency. In other words, if you have changed your life profoundly by migrating to this new location, will you still be ok living there if we were to slow and lessen the global warming extinction emergency enough to not go over the climate cliff into near extinction.
If possible ahead of time, if you were seriously thinking about migrating to some area, it is recommended to go to that area and spend an extended amount of time there. This way you will also get to know the local culture, local economics, the social and political attitudes of the people towards newcomers, and the local weather variations. One season of the year may be beautiful, but the other three seasons may be nearly unbearable for a variety of reasons such as heat, humidity, rainfall, high wind, low sunlight, extreme cold, or even insect infestations.
Also, see this new page on evaluating when to migrate. Trying to precisely time migration in many ways is like timing a market buy or sell. It is fraught with peril because of the many factors at play.
If you have to migrate, our advice is, "migrate substantially before" you think you have to! Global warming and our other crises are steadily accelerating. Our governments are not doing anywhere close to what is needed to avoid the next global emergency!
b. Find a final migration location that is as far away from the most probable northerly migration routes. The most probable migration routes around the world will be those routes closest to coastal areas (through boat access,) or where there are large highways and other forms of easy-to-access transportation that can rapidly move people away from danger zones toward safer zones. For example, mountainous terrain, dense forests or deserts as well as areas without good roads or easy transportation will not have as many climagees passing through them because of the increased difficulties in passing through these areas.
What most people do not realize is that once this soon-to-be greatest migration in human history begins to accelerate, and as many more people realize how bad things really are, most people will be leaving unsafe stones with very little or no assets. This is because they waited too long to migrate and their land values and other assets will have radically dropped in value in those areas where food cannot be dependably grown, where droughts and wildfires are rampant, and where temperatures will become too high to sustain anything like normal life, commerce or social stability.
Climagees without assets or few assets will be desperate to feed themselves any way they have to! This means that crime and other forms of escalating social chaos will follow these waves of unfortunate late-arriving climagees wherever they go. As the Great Global Warming Migration continues, nonprofit organizations and government aid will never be able to keep up with the skyrocketing demands of the hundreds of millions then billions of desperate migrating climagees.
c. Your successful access to global warming safe zones by winning the desperate last hope migration lottery.
If you do not legally migrate to global warming safer zones while prices are still low enough to buy something or, the borders have not been closed or otherwise tightly restricted, you will have to be insanely lucky and enter what we call the coming last hope desperation lottery.
The last hope lottery is what the global warming safer nations of the world most likely are already working on in secret. (Do you really think the intelligence agencies of the most developed nations of the world do not understand what is coming and are not already preparing for it in secret?)
The design of the last hope lottery will be to give a very small number of individuals from global warming unsafe zones (about one-thousandth to one ten-thousandth of one percent of the population in global warming unsafe zones,) the legal right to migrate to the global warming safer zones. The governments in the safer zones will not specify how many or what percentage of individuals will become winners in this last hope lottery because that would ultimately defeat the purpose of maintaining the appropriate allowable numbers mystery to keep the hope factor alive.
This lottery will have no requirements other than entering it and will most likely only include the right for the immediate family (parents and children only,) of the winner to migrate with them.
The whole purpose of the last chance lottery is to provide a sliver of hope that, if you just stay where you are while things keep getting worse, you still have a chance at salvation through this last hope lottery.
This ridiculously low probability lottery is at best a cynical attempt by the nations in global warming safer zones to do everything possible to prevent mass panic and desperate mass migration as greater and greater portions of the population finally realize that the escalating global warming extinction emergency is not just some random bad weather. It is more like a near planet-killing asteroid that will hit on a given schedule and at a given location and if you're in the wrong location at the wrong time, game over!
d. Finally, ask yourself if your new chosen location includes enjoyable and/or suitable work opportunities available for your knowledge, experience, or skill set.
Not everyone who migrates will have sufficient financial reserves to survive without working some job in the new location. Be sure to carefully investigate potential employment opportunities that match your job skills in the area you are seeking to migrate to, long before you pack up everything!
If you are seriously considering migration as a solution to extend the length and quality of your life, take the time to carefully consider ALL possible positive and negative factors before choosing any particular migration location.

All of the above global warming extinction emergency preparedness information can seem a little scary or overwhelming unless you view it from a bigger perspective. Here are a few key points to remember about preparedness in general:
1. The history of emergency relief efforts during Hurricane Katrina, or Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, or Maria in Puerto Rico, and other climate catastrophes around the world has demonstrated most people will not have either the resources or time to create an emergency recovery program during the actual emergency. Just before or during the emergency, everything you will need to be safe will be long gone off the shelves, not working, or unavailable as others desperately struggle to quickly find what they need to survive. As a rule, if you're not well prepared long before the emergency, you're out of luck.
2. Emergency relief history has also shown people will initially be kind and share their resources up to the point they realize the essential life-sustaining resources have become scarce. Then they usually switch over to the Darwinian “do whatever you have to do to survive” hoarding or stealing mode.
3. No government or charity will have the ongoing capacity 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.
4. 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.
5. Being prepared for emergencies, catastrophic miscalculations, and future uncertainties by creating emergency plans, physical reserves, and backup system resilience is as old as humanity itself.
If you do consider migrating, please tell every when you love and can with an open mind about the coming global warming meltdown so that they may consider migration to safer areas and more comfortable lives as well.

The first three spellbinding books on the personalized effects of global warming and attempted migration after it really is too late are:
On Vestige Way by David Spielberg just arrived at Amazon.
Octavia Butler is an Award-winning and fabulous fiction writer. On Vestige Way is an emotion-packed novel about how global warming adversely affects the future, the fate of the world’s Millennials, generation Z, big corporations, and today's political alliances. These three books are absolute must-reads to viscerally see the day-to-day ordinary and extraordinary suffering that our current out-of-control global warming will impose upon all those individuals, families, businesses that refuse to leave the high-risk zones.
The fourth book is Climageddon, the Global Warming Emergency and How to Survive It by Lawrence Wollersheim. Click here to learn more about why this book is also useful for those of you who may still think you can ride out the coming catastrophes.
