There is a lot to update you about on global warming emergency this month especially since we missed last month's update...
Global warming extinction emergency group members glue themselves to doorways to block members of Congress from attending evening vote.Read more
We are in an undeclared global warming extinction emergency. In a state of emergency, usually one has little time left to fix the emergency. Therefore, one must act accordingly and operate at new levels of direct intervention commensurate with the danger and ensuring the crisis will get resolved.
Our organization has adapted to this new reality of the global warming extinction emergency. We have become a respectful disruptor of any individuals, companies, and some not-for-profit environmental and global warming peers who are unintentionally or intentionally presenting false or misleading global warming information.
But what exactly do we mean by respectful disruptor?
A. Being a disruptor means that in peaceful and nonviolent ways, we will publicly challenge any organization or individual that presents false or underestimated global warming analysis or facts or, otherwise misrepresents, dummies down or "markets" global warming information in such a way that it becomes counter-productive to resolving the global warming extinction emergency.
We will disrupt any flow of false and misleading information where ever we find it to the best of our organization's abilities and resources.
We are compelled to disrupt wherever necessary. This new disruption policy is because our current global warming emergency is so great and the time to prevent mass human, animal, and biological extinction is so short (only until 2025.)
We further hold that no well-intended or ill-informed organization or individual has the inherent right to do such things unchallenged when their actions and ideas lessen either the urgency or the means of resolving our current global warming extinction emergency.
Our unwelcome role as a disruptor is required. Any distress that we might cause by challenging an offending organization or individual is infinitely less when compared to the suffering, death, and damage that such unchallenged information will eventually cause to the world's efforts to reduce global warming in time to save the future.
B. Being respectful means that we will respectfully challenge any organization or individual that presents false or underestimated global warming analysis or, facts counter-productive to resolving the global warming extinction emergency.
We will do it respectfully because most individuals, companies, and nonprofit organizations are composed of good people and have done many good things. In some cases, they may have made essential contributions to the global warming educational movement.
We also understand that in most cases, these organizations and individuals are probably not doing this awarely or intentionally. They are just doing the best they have with what they have.
We believe that when they have unintentionally presented false or underestimated global warming analysis or, facts or, that they have misrepresented other important global warming information, it is often because they have:
1. Failed to adequately challenge the existing paradigms of global warming climate models, analysis and interpretation for missing critical inputs, hidden political manipulation or manipulation by other hidden for-profit vested interests which have skewed or warped the integrity of other honest climate researchers results.
2. Listened to marketing advisors within their organizations, causing them to self-censor and treat their members like children who cannot deal with the hard facts of the global warming extinction emergency.
3. Failed to have any single individual or executive within their organization put in the tens of thousands of pages of research reading with the requisite analysis skills to have an adequate meta-systemic understanding of one of the most complicated issues of our time.
We will be respectfully disruptive of the incorrect facts, false beliefs, and ineffective global warming reduction plans of anyone presenting them. We do this to call attention to more effective actions or more useful global warming analysis (found on this website.)
We will provide useful and accurate information on this state of emergency. This way, we can more quickly reduce global fossil fuel use by executing all of the actions necessary to prevent mass human, animal, and biological extinction within our lifetimes because:
a. The faster and more we reduce global fossil fuel use, the more people that will survive to carry on humanity.
b. The quicker and more we reduce global fossil fuel use, the less future generations will suffer from an ever-increasing sequence of escalating global warming catastrophes.
We believe that everyone has the right to their own opinion. We also believe that anyone can and should be publicly challenged if the result(s) of their unchallenged opinions will cause grave harm to others.
Therefore, if anyone is forwarding ideas that will make it more difficult to slow ro resolve the global warming extinction emergency, we will present them with the information on this website in public or private disruptive of status quo actions.

Why will it be so hard to prevent mass human extinction without achieving the 2025 global warming fossil fuel reduction targets?
There are serious reasons for why we may not achieve the extinction-preventing 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and deadlines.
There are only 5 critical global warming facts that everyone needs to know to live a longer, more stable and healthy life.
This article sums up the 5 most important and dangerous facts to know about global warming aka climate change.
It is intended to assist mature and intelligent individuals review uncomfortable but accurate global warming facts, and cut through commonly held global warming illusions and falsehoods. Having this critical information, they can then better adapt and adjust their lives accordingly.
To help you process this uncomfortable news, at the end of this article, we have provided some great news! You will also find a capable, self-directed plan for what you can do how to resolve the global warming emergency while we still have the time to do so.
For many individuals, the 5 most important facts about global warming will dramatically challenge their beliefs about current strategies in understanding and managing the global warming emergency.
Please do not believe that we are asking you to blindly accept these shocking 5 facts without examining the links to the science and analysis which supports each one. We invite you to come to your own conclusions after reading the expanded explanations for each fact, which is found below the 5 Facts quick summary.)
(Click here if you are new to global warming issues to learn the basics of how global warming happens in several great graphics.)
A quick summary of the 5 most important and shocking global warming facts:
Fact 1: We are not being told the painful truth by our governments (or even by our most prominent environmental groups,) about how bad global warming currently is or, how bad it's going to get. Their analysis, calculations, and consequence timetable predictions are grossly underestimated. In many cases, they are dead wrong by as much as 20-40%.
Fact 2: Many global warming consequences are going to arrive far sooner and be far worse than we are being told. This is in part because of our 35-year delay in fixing our climate crisis.
Fact 3: We are only 5 years away from missing our last chance to maintain our control over our global warming future and prevent global warming's worst consequences from occurring within our lifetimes. In fact, many of global warming's future effects have already become unavoidable!
Fact 4: Fortunately, we still have until 2025 to prevent mass human, animal, and biological extinction within our lifetimes. We can do this! But only if we meet 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets by completing the necessary fossil fuel reduction actions (described further below.)
Fact 5: There is no guarantee that we will act any differently toward fixing the global warming emergency than we have for the last 35 years. It is time for rational individuals (and businesses) to also begin creating their own emergency backup plans.
(Please note: At the very end of this document, you will also find positive news and essential tips on how to emotionally deal with these new and painful realities of global warming.)
The expanded 5 most important global warming facts with their verification and action links
Fact 1: We are not being told the painful truth by our governments (or even by many of our most prominent environmental groups,) about how bad global warming currently is or, how bad it's going to get. Their analysis, calculations, and consequence timetable predictions are grossly underestimated and are dead wrong by as much as 20-40%.
Having grossly underestimated global warming consequence and timetable information presented by "trusted" authorities creates a false sense of public safety and removes any urgency to resolve it. This is extremely dangerous because if we had more accurate information about global warming, we would, without a doubt, experience a legitimate and appropriate panic.
These falsehoods about global warming will increasingly cause extreme suffering and loss to larger and larger percentages of humanity. In part, these false statements exist because there have been numerous government underestimation errors and intentionally inappropriate and/or incomplete calculations. This is particularly true concerning the necessary national and international fossil fuel reduction targets given to the public.
There has also been significant deception regarding the real consequences of the current escalating global warming. This government-financed and promoted inaccurate information creates the false belief and sense of security that things are better than they really are.
This also makes us believe that we are making sufficient and steady progress in reducing global warming when the hard truth is we are not.
What has been hidden from you by our governments, the media and inadvertently by many our most prominent environmental groups
1. We have actually increased fossil fuel use more this century than in the last two decades of the 20th century. The more than half of all fossil fuel emissions which have been released over the previous 25 years are now more than were released in ALL of recorded history before 1990.
2. We are about 67% higher in carbon emissions than the early 1990s. This is even though we have had over 20 international fossil fuel reduction conferences and treaties since 1993 pledging we would reduce worldwide global warming. (Atmospheric carbon emissions is probably the best way to measure future global warming.)
3. In 2018 carbon emissions increased another dramatic 2.7% and they are projected to rise once again in 2019. (Here is a graph that shows the rising carbon in the atmosphere to help you visualize that things are not just going bad. As of August 2019, we are now at about carbon 414 parts per million in our atmosphere [ppm.]
Carbon in our atmosphere is getting exponentially worse while you are being told we are doing better at reducing global carbon emissions. Worse yet, exponential increases in carbon emissions will likely also mean exponential increases in future global warming consequences.)
Yes, intentionally or through ignorance or, as part of intentional systemic deception our governments, the media, and most of the world's environmental groups have not been telling us the REAL facts about our REAL lack of any meaningful progress whatsoever in reducing the rate of fossil fuel use increases, much less the complete absence of any substantive reductions anywhere across the world in reducing atmospheric carbon.
The following links will also help you decide if our current grossly underestimated public information about global warming exists because of unintentional misrepresentation, innocent mistakes, or systemic, intentional deception by hidden vested interests.
1. We are not anywhere even close to where we should be in fossil fuel use reductions to save us from unthinkable climate catastrophes and extinction. Click here to read about how "made up" calculations were used to set our current national and international fossil fuel reduction targets. These made up calculations came from including untested new technologies which even they admit, will not be available until sometime after 2050, if ever!

3. (If you don't believe we are telling you the facts about our dismal failure in reducing global warming over the last 35 years, click here. You can view a short video by climate Professor Kevin Anderson in a recent presentation to the Oxford University Climate Society.)
Something to think about once you have read the above documentation links on the underestimation, and inappropriate or incomplete calculations:
a. Can you imagine what the reasons might be for why our governments would publically give us such grossly underestimated global warming threat assessments and inadequate solutions, especially when the actual threat is so much more severe?
b. Who (what types of individuals, government departments and corporations,) would benefit most by providing such false and grossly misleading information to the public?

Click here to review the intentional inappropriate or incomplete global government-supported calculations used to create the false belief that things are far better than they really are.
Fact 2: Many global warming consequences are going to arrive far sooner and be far worse than we are being told. This is in part because of our 35-year delay in fixing our climate crisis.
The worst consequences of global warming will not be occurring around 2100 as we are now being told by our governments. They will start to occur as soon as the next 10 to 30 years in a continually worsening spiral.
Click here to review the 20 worst global warming consequences that will continue to increase in severity, frequency, and scale (area affected.)
Click here for the worst cataclysmic consequences derived from global warming tipping points that will also continue to increase in severity, frequency, and scale. (Crossing more major global warming tipping points also produces additional, unique and hyper-intense extinction-evoking consequences.)
Click here to see the real-time frames in which the many worst global warming consequences will be unfolding.
Fact 3: We are only 5 years away from missing our last chance to maintain control of our global warming future and prevent global warming's worst consequences (and crossed tipping points) from occurring within our lifetimes. In fact, many of global warming's future effects have already become unavoidable!
In part, this is because the real facts and true urgency about the global warming crisis were hidden from us by our governments and the fossil fuel industry. We did not do what was necessary to resolve global warming over the last 35 years after we were informed about it by our scientists.
We have squandered valuable time. This valuable time could have been used while the "cure" was still easier and far more manageable.
Saddest of all, we are still trying to do "far too little far too late" to make any real difference. This far too little far too late is also occurring because we are still using fossil fuel reduction targets that are grossly incorrect for the emergency we really are in.
Had we started fixing global warming gradually and effectively 35 years ago, it would be far easier to control and manage now.
Being out of meaningful control of our global warming crisis means that average global temperatures will most probably continue increasing for at least another 30-50 years. There will be a series of cataclysmic consequences.
More extinction-evoking tipping points will be crossed. And, unless we meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, this can not be avoided!
Below please find the best estimates for time frames in which average global temperatures will continue to increase for at least another 30-50 years. The Climageddon Scenario (CS) mentioned below is a new and more complete model for how global warming's consequences will unfold over the next 50+ years.
Click here to see more about how the many global warming consequences and tipping points will unfold in the full Climageddon Scenario.
Fact 4: Fortunately, we still have until 2025 to prevent mass human, animal, and biological extinction within our lifetimes. We can do this! But only if we meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets by completing actions similar to what is found in the Job One for Humanity Plan.
Reaching the 2025 targets makes it possible to retain control of our global warming futures. It will also allow us to delay the worst of the currently unavoidable global warming consequences long enough to protect and preserve ourselves for a while longer.
We have squandered our last 35 years of warnings with denial, inaction, and ineffective action. We cannot stop every consequence that is coming and is already locked into our climate system.
Luckily, we still have five years left until 2025 to make the most urgent and needed global fossil fuel use reductions. If we are successful, it will save us from mass human, animal, and biological extinction within our lifetimes.
We will also have to slow down the worst unavoidable global warming consequences aggressively. This way, we will have some time left to prepare and adapt for those consequences we can no longer avoid.
We will do both of these things primarily by:
A. immediately and radically reducing our fossil fuel use to the correct reduction levels.
The absolute minimum amount we need to reduce fossil fuel use to slow and prevent the processes of going extinct in the next few decades is as follows:
a. All industrially developed nations must reduce their total fossil fuel use by 75% by 2025 and then continue reducing fossil fuel use to net-zero carbon emissions by 2035. Net carbon zero emissions means that no additional fossil fuel emissions are going into the atmosphere that are not also simultaneously being removed from the atmosphere by natural means.
Only about 20 mostly developed countries produce 70% or more of the world's carbon emissions. Think of developed nations like most members of the G 20 group; Argentina, Australia, Canada, the European Union, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, China, and India.
b. All developing nations must maintain their total fossil fuel emission levels as they are at the beginning of 2019 and not allow them to go any higher. Then by 2045, all developing nations must also be at net-zero carbon emissions.
This allowance for developing nations to stay at the level they are now and gradually reduce down to net-zero carbon emissions by 2045 is part of an essential justice and equity equation. The developed nations created their wealth by producing the majority of all carbon emissions in the atmosphere today. They have caused almost all of our current global warming extinction emergency.
There is much more information including what will happen if we don't hit the above targets as well as the necessary technical footnotes at this page. Please read this information before continuing.
We can still make the difficult and required global fossil fuel reductions by 2025. It is still possible to prevent mass human and biological extinction within our lifetimes! We now just need to get VERY busy with these specific actions from the Job One for Humanity Plan.
(If you still do not believe that mass human, animal, and biological extinction caused by global warming is a high probability within your lifetime [30-50- years from now,] click here. This page will take you through how and when three extinction-activating global warming tipping points will quickly occur but, once again only if we miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.)
B. instituting a government-directed "in-case we fail backup plan." (With a government-directed failsafe and backup plan, we may still be able to save and salvage enough of humanity and civilization in case we once again delay, deny and fail to reduce fossil fuel emissions adequately.)
Click here to see what the government directed failsafe backup plan preparations must be.
Martin Luther King said something that is equally applicable today to the urgency of slowing down global warming enough so that at least some of humanity and civilization will go on.
"We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time. We must move past indecision to immediate action."

This page will take you through how three extinction-activating global warming tipping points will quickly occur, but only if we miss the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.
Fact 5: There is no guarantee that we will act any differently toward fixing the global warming emergency than we have for the last 35 years. It is time for rational individuals (and businesses) to also begin creating their own emergency backup plans.
It is time to start preparing for and adapting to both the escalating and unavoidable consequences of global warming. These emergency strategies could even include migrating to areas that would be safer from the effects of global warming.
It is unwise to rely exclusively on our governments as this emergency worsens. They will quickly run out of resources and never be able to reach and care for every citizen as things worsen.
Having emergency preparations and adaptive strategies is how you will be able to save and salvage as much of your own life, family, and business as is possible. This backup plan prepare and adapt strategy is critical because most individuals and companies are grossly unprepared for the severity of the unavoidable global warming consequences that are arriving soon.
This emergency plan is particularly crucial if you also happen to live in one of the global warming unsafe zones. If so, and before it is too late, your back up plan would also have to include a migration strategy from global warming dangerous zones to global warming safer zones. (To learn about the location of safer and unsafe zones, click here.)
The time remaining in which to make these personal emergency preparations or to migrate to the limited global warming safe zones is exceedingly short. This shortness of time is real because of factors like immigration regulations in the global warming safe zones already becoming more restricted. Additionally, future legal immigration will be all but shut down as the emergency worsens.
If you look closely, you can already see many crisis areas in our overheating world. These are places that will soon be the areas of the most significant climagee migration in human history. (Climagees are global warming climate crisis-related refugees.)
Click here to learn about your needed personal emergency preparations. This page will describe the factors behind the short prepare and migrate timeframes for people living in global warming unsafe zones. These personal emergency preparations also include information on how you can physically, emotionally thrive and survive through the coming waves of economic, political, and social trauma, loss, and suffering.
What's important to remember on this page
1. We have been deceived by intentional falsehoods as well as commonly held illusions concerning the real dangers and facts about escalating global warming for over 35 years!
2. We now need to hit the REAL and required global fossil fuel reduction targets found here. Reaching these targets will keep us from crossing the hazardous atmospheric carbon level and climate cliff of 425 to 450 parts per million (ppm.) (We are at about carbon 413 ppm right now.)
3. Once we reach the carbon 425 to 450 ppm range, there will be so much climate system momentum from all of the previously emitted carbon and other greenhouse gases that this previous momentum alone will continue to propel us towards even higher temperatures. Worse yet, stopping this massive climate momentum moving us toward ever-higher temperatures will be like trying to stop a gigantic boulder from rolling faster and faster down a hill that keeps getting steeper and steeper.
4. There is a terrifying thought that is critical for you to burn into your mind. Much of humanity, as well as our animal species and biological species, will go extinct within as little as 30-50 years. While at the same time, our ability to have any real or meaningful control over this emergency ends around about 2025 just after we cross the carbon 425-450 ppm climate cliff.
5. Mass extinction will occur, only if we fail to achieve the required 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets successfully.
6. In case you still think technology will save us at the last minute, no new carbon removal technologies will be able to save us in time. In part, this is because those who are relying on this technology to save us are projecting it will not even be available until sometime after 2050. 2050 is long after the damage is already done and long after anything can be done for the billions of people who will suffer and die! (Click here to learn more about the new technology will save us deception.)
7. It easy to see that we are in fact, already in a global warming extinction emergency (aka climate emergency.) This emergency is still occurring in significant part because of the above new information as well as intentional falsehoods and commonly held illusions about global warming.
Why we must succeed
Because of the preceding, we genuinely have no rational alternative other than to never cross the uber-dangerous transitional range and first climate cliff and tipping point of carbon 425-450 ppm. In spite of all of the challenges and adverse outcomes that are possible in failing to hit our 2025 targets which would prevent crossing 425-450 ppm, what we do know with certainty about this extinction emergency is this:
a. The single highest truth for the best possible global warming outcomes for humanity and our future are that the faster and more we reduce global fossil fuel use:
1. the more people who will not suffer horribly or die over the next 30 to 50 years, and
2. surviving future generations will suffer far less from an escalating chain of unavoidable global warming consequences. (This is described fully in what is called the Climageddon extinction scenario and countdown.)
b. We can still fix this global warming extinction emergency but only by getting our governments to execute the actions on this page immediately. These actions are designed to hit the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets successfully.
Some extra good news
With the information on this page and in the links above, you are now better...
The extra good news here is that no matter what and, in spite of how severe this emergency is or will become until we miss our 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets (and even afterward,) we still have time left to cooperate in slowing it down and lessening its consequences. We can yet have enjoyable and meaningful lives while we face this challenge.

Are you feeling sad, upset, depressed, angry or anxious about the global warming emergency?
There is a lot of horrible news to digest about global warming. Any person who realizes that our governments are not doing enough to save us from unthinkable suffering and loss will naturally experience sadness, anger, depression, or significant anxiety.
The Job One for Humanity staff also has had to digest all the dreadful global warming news. To get our team though it emotionally, we learned about something called the Kubler Ross model of change. This emotional management model helped our team deal with all of the challenging emotions that today's global warming news evokes.
We felt it would be irresponsible to leave our readers without some of these tools to manage the intense feelings that the global warming emergency can create. Accordingly, we are providing the following images and tools that should help you come to emotional terms with the new realities of global warming. Here's how these global warming caused emotional reactions, transitions, and healings usually look for most people:
1. If you're like most people, what you have learned about the global warming emergency will cause you to initially react with denial and shock.
2. If you have the tenacity to explore more concerning how bad our governments have let global warming become, you will likely also become frustrated and angry at "how could our politicians and governments ever allow this to happen.
3. If you continue examing the facts of the global warming emergency and its solutions, you will most likely then enter into a bargaining or experimenting phase to find some way to deal with such disturbing and disruptive information on your life and future.
4. If you continue verifying the facts of the global warming emergency as well as it's honest but difficult and painful solutions, you will most likely next enter into a transitional feeling of grief or depression.
5. As you work your way through your grief or depression, you will eventually come to a level of acceptance of what is scientifically accurate. (Even though it is currently is being suppressed by the fossil fuel industry, mass media, and the politicians owned by the fossil fuel industry.)
A bit more about the Kubler Ross Model emotional management model
The five primary emotional transition levels above are vital parts of the Kubler Ross model. Over time, this model is a useful tool to help you deal with the global warming denial, anger, fear, grief or anxiety that any healthy person would experience once they truly realize the current nature of our global warming emergency.
The Kubler Ross model is used to help people deal with the medical news that they are going to die. But, it still has powerful relevance here.
This is true because as you wrestle with the new global warming realities, you will most likely go through these five emotional phases over and over again. You will do this in numerous waves until you finally reach a profound and deeply stable state of acceptance, peace, and hopefully motivation to do whatever you can to reduce this threat.
When you finally realize how bad our global warming emergency is the challenging emotional effects is a real thing! If you don't believe us, please click here to read about a new report called, The Psychological Effects of Global Warming on the United States and Why the U.S. Mental Health Care System Is Not Adequately Prepared.
Reaching necessary emotional acceptance and getting into action
Once you reach a level of emotional acceptance for what you have learned about the global warming emergency, you will be more willing and ready to begin new ways to solve the global warming emergency. You also will find yourself being better prepared to make new decisions on how to adapt and integrate this critical information into your life and business.
You may begin even emergency preparations for the unavoidable coming global warming consequences. This way, you are better able to protect you, your family and business and wisely maximize the chances of staying out of harm's way.
Once one reaches the critical state of emotional acceptance of the reality of what one is facing, most mature adults do as they have done for millennia. They accept what they cannot change and start finding ways to adapt to it. (There are also many adaptation steps found in the Job One Plan.) They also accept the truth of the bad news, and they get busy working on whatever they can do to change and improve it. (In this case, the get active on the Job One Plan action steps.)
We at Job One have found that the best thing to help minimize the emotional pain and trauma is to get busy completing the action steps of the Job One Plan. This is true even if you have not fully reached the acceptance level of your emotional recovery. The Job One Plan's many action steps proactively focus your attention on what can still be done. This focus on the needed action also minimizes your available attention on the negatives (once they have served their purpose of redirecting you to action the deeper truths of this emergency.)
Therapy or support groups also can help you work through having the painful realization that humanity is in the worst existential crisis on its history and, we do not have much time left (until 2025,) to effectively prevent mass extinction. Therapy or support groups can also help get you motivated to do whatever you can on the many action steps of the Job One Plan.
As you continue to understand the scale of our global warming emergency, you may also come to realize that our lives and our children's lives are going to be far shorter than we ever imagined. But that still can be changed if we immediately react to the challenge of radically reducing our global fossil fuel usage to meet the 2025 targets!
One last emotional recovery tip
Not everything about our global warming extinction emergency is emotionally disheartening. There are many surprising benefits to this emergency. Click here to read the single most read page on our website on these many benefits. At Job One we review this list regularly to maintain the mental well-being of our own staff. We also discovered that regular review of this good news and benefits list was critical to keeping our volunteers on-mission and maintaining their motivation as well.
What else to consider?
1. Some of you have already reviewed the supporting science and analysis links provided above. This information will likely motivate you to begin the fossil fuel reduction actions and other global warming solutions found within the links above. Well done! You will reap the benefits.
2. Some of you will not or, did not review the science and analysis verification links. This subtle avoidance may only provide a brief escape from the discomfort of knowing the problematic facts listed above are accurate or, acting appropriately using that information. Over time, as you watch the worsening news reports about our climate, the five facts above will begin to ring even more valid. Hopefully, at that time you will remember this page so that you, your family and business can learn what to do next.

The Job One for Humanity research team
For ten years, the Job One for Humanity nonprofit organization has been educating about the global warming extinction emergency. Our educational efforts are derived from a meta-systemic analysis of current global warming research.
A meta-systemic analysis of global warming involves the detailed analysis of processes, contexts, relationships, and the continuous transformations occurring among and between the interconnected and interdependent systems and subsystems of the climate which are causing global warming. This meta-analysis process considers global warming's systems and subsystems both as stand-alone and individual systems as well as being interconnected and interdependent with and upon each other.
This meta-systemic analysis also creates a both a critical "big picture" overview as well as a Hegelian dialectical consequence progression model and timetable for the unfolding of the coming global warming consequences.
Unlike much of today’s research analysis and interpretation, we offer an over-arching analysis and interpretation of existing climate research free of vested interests, political influences, or marketing/donor considerations. We speak the disturbing truth to power about our current global warming extinction emergency to a level which you will not find elsewhere.
As an example of this candidness, please review our analysis of the correct levels of global fossil-fuel reduction that must be achieved by 2025, or we will quickly cross three global warming tipping points. Crossing these global warming tipping points will result in mass human extinction within our lifetimes. (For the real 2025 reduction targets, see https://www.joboneforhumanity.org/today_s_real_annual_fossil_fuel_reduction_targets )
Based on a careful and continuous meta-systemic analysis of the global warming emergency and its real urgency, we have also created and continually update a systematic 4 part plan for dealing with the contingencies of this emergency utilizing a critical, prioritized and deadline-driven strategy quite unlike any other global warming and fossil fuel reduction plan. (Our meta-systemic analysis and evaluation results have also produced a set of prioritized and practical, urgently needed global warming and fossil fuel reduction solutions to the global warming extinction emergency in the form of the Job One for Humanity Plan.)
We are also unique in that we are an all-volunteer organization.
Our nonprofit global warming educational organization will tell you what few other global warming websites will tell you.
Some websites believe you are too weak to deal with the increasingly bad global warming news or, they dummy-down their information so much, it is near useless.
They act like, if they did tell you the disheartening new research concerning global warming, you will not stick around, volunteer or donate.
We will NEVER treat you that way.
We will always give you the most accurate and current science available no matter how painful.
We will make it understandable with lots of illustrations.
We will always treat you as an adult who can deal with the truth about our current global warming emergency. And,
We believe that once you do understand the science of this emergency, you will do your part to help us manage it.
Better and different
Most other global warming educational websites continue to present bits and pieces of new climate research or subtly "flawed" analysis by other climate research organizations like the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which have undisclosed biases, vested interests or inherent conflicts of interests. Others educational organizations present these partial and/or flawed analyses, which are not based upon comprehensive Hegelian dialectical and meta-systemic analysis result in underestimated, incorrect and/or inadequate consequence timetable and severity predictions for the relevant climate, biological and human systems involved.
We are also a respectful disruptor
We are an organization of respectful disruptors. We do this by being a respectful disruptor when we challenge any organization or individual that presents false or misleading analysis or information about our current global warming extinction emergency or, that minimizes or diminishes its real threat or, what we must do to save humanity in time.

Because of new research and analysis on January 29, 2019 we changed our slogan to:
How to Prevent Global Warming Extinction
Click here for an explanation of this change.
If we have (or have not,) disturbed your global warming belief system, the first thing we recommend you do on our website is read one of the most important science-grounded pages on our website.
Next, we recommend that you read the following page because it overviews the hacked, honest and challenging solutions you will need to learn about to extend the comfort and length of your life and the lives of your loved ones.
By the time you finish these two pages, we believe that you too will agree with our unusual slogan choice. You too will understand that because global warming is out of our meaningful control for at least the next 50 years, hacking inelegant, but effective temporary solutions (that will ultimately only slow or lessen unconscionable, inevitable and unavoidable global warming consequences and crossed tipping points,) is in truth, now the best we can hope for.
"You cannot be called an alarmist if there really is something to be alarmed about." Unknown
The "Elevator Presentation" Version of Our Mission
Because the urgency for action is so great, our current 5-year mission focus is:
To prevent mass human, animal, and biological extinction within our lifetimes by ensuring that the world meets the last chance, 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
The primary way we will prevent global warming-caused mass extinction within our lifetimes is to successfully achieve the following five objectives:
B. We shock the world awake to our extinction emergency with the scientific evidence that global warming is far, far worse than our governments and the media are telling us.
C. We challenge the people of the world to prove the science we are presenting wrong. (One shocking fact that we are not being told is that we only have until 2025 to maintain any meaningful control of our global warming future.)
D. We respectfully disrupt individuals and organizations that do not educate about the real global warming extinction emergency. Especially those that present false or misleading information as to the accurate targets and deadlines needed for global fossil fuel reduction.
This disruption includes disrupting some of the world's most prestigious environmental organizations. If we can't get the world's leading environmental organizations working as one focusing on the correct fossil fuel reduction targets and timeframes, there is scant hope that humanity will survive. (Click here to see our respectful disruption policy.)
E. We will always present accurate and rational hope for the future whenever we offer shocking or disheartening facts about our current global warming extinction emergency. This hope is solidly based on what is still possible to do.
The "Why" Behind Our Mission
Our members and visitors appreciate our organization because we treat them with respect as adults. We tell them the painful truths and difficult actions we now must take to make the best of an almost impossible global warming emergency. Those harsh new facts of global warming are:
a. We are already in an undeclared global warming extinction emergency. (Click here to see why.)
c. Many of global warming's very worst consequences are already unavoidable no matter what we do right now!
d. Within our lifetimes (the next 30 to 50 years,) we face the high probability of a mass human, animal, and biological extinction. This will affect a large portion of humanity about 70-90% if not all, but only if we miss the critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. We will also soon face expanding global economic, political, and social chaos in what is called the Climageddon Scenario extinction model and countdown.
e. We have to radically reduce global fossil fuel use now to meet the 2025 global targets to save billions of lives, prevent untold human suffering as well as keep humanity and most animals, and biological species from going extinct in what will become the 6th Great Extinction event of earth's history.
Many of the individuals who use this website will come to (or have already come to,) the conclusion that unless we make vast and immediate fossil fuel reductions, a large portion of humanity is on its way to unconscionable suffering and extinction within their lifetimes. They are already (or will soon become,) aware that this real extinction threat comes from the current global warming emergency and the 6 other major global challenges facing humanity converging upon and into each other.
Our expanded and post-2025 mission
We will cross the last chance global warming tipping point if we miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. Then we will rapidly pass the next 2 extinction-evoking carbon 500 and 600 parts per million tipping points with all of their unthinkable and unavoidable consequences.
Therefore and logically, what our organization must do as its prime and continuous mission is to prevent global warming mass human, animal, and biological extinction.
The primary way we will avoid this horrible outcome is to achieve the following additional critical objectives needed to resolve the global warming extinction emergency:
a. help individuals, businesses and nations prepare for and adapt to the many global warming consequences which we can no longer avoid, while also
b. try to save, salvage and protect whatever we can of humanity, civilization and animal and biological species just in case we fail to hit the last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. If we fail we will experience mass human extinction and social chaos within our lifetimes, and if we are successful in reaching the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets,
c. restore the carbon parts per million level in the atmosphere (now at about carbon 414 ppm,) back to its preindustrial safe level of about carbon 250 to 270 parts per million once we have met the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
We are doing all of the above by:
a. promoting the highest level of national and international cooperation and mass mobilization in human history. We either cooperate together *at the highest levels and scale,) or we will ALL eventually die together in the ever-worsening and unending meltdown of global warming consequences with crossed global warming tipping points.
b. doing everything we can to motivate our governments to slow escalating global warming enough to prevent near-term extinction by achieving the last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. To do this they have to create and enforcing new fossil fuel reduction laws so more of us can survive longer and suffer less. (See Parts three and Part four of the Job One plan.)
c. warning you (and society,) through our strategy of "shock and challenge" about our current state of out of control global warming (for as long as the next 30-50 years,) and why our governments must immediately and radically reduce fossil fuel use to achieve the 2025 targets. If we hit the 2025 targets there is still a small possibility we can prevent or at least slow down the process of crossing the carbon 600 ppm final extinction level tipping point.
If we do not meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, our mission focus will switch over to the following:
A. Helping you as an individual to prepare for and to adapt to the bitter reality of the high likelihood of living in a world where as much as 70-90+ percent of the unprepared human population will first suffer horribly then die within our lifetimes. We have to face the fact that all we may be able to do at this point is to save and salvage whatever we can to prevent the complete extinction of humanity and end of civilization.
Global warming extinction is no longer a remote possibility coming sometime after 2100 as we been lulled into believing by our government's inaction Mass human, animal, and biological extinction in many areas of the world will be arriving as soon as the next 30 to 50 years if we do not immediately make the required 2025 radical global fossil fuel cuts! (For information on how to prepare and adapt for what is coming so more of us live longer and suffer less is contained in both Part 1 of the Job One Plan and then Part 2 of the Job One Plan) and,
B. Helping so-inclined individuals and groups create sustainable, self-organizing and independent eco-communities in global warming-safe locations to help make sure that enough of these new eco-communities are established and well-prepared enough to survive the escalating onslaught of now unavoidable global warming catastrophes. These new experimental eco-communities will be absolutely essential to help carry forward the survival of humanity, human culture, and civilization if we fail to make the required radical and immediate 2025 global fossil fuel reductions.
(Please see the Universe Community sections of our sister website for all the information you will need to do to create and self-organize your own sustainable eco-community in a global warming-safe zone.)
C. Doing what we can to support intelligent government-driven backup emergency and migration plans.
D. Once and if we have survived this global warming extinction emergency and we have learned the painful experiential lessons it will teach us, we (this organization and the new eco-communities mentioned above,) will promote a new, survival-proven understanding of equitable and sustainable living and livelihoods for all of the Earth's remaining survivors. This will help transform the trauma and unthinkable losses of the highly likely coming Great Collapse and Great Die-off into a springboard for a Great Rebuilding and new beginning
This will help facilitate the rebuilding of a better and more equitable world for ALL that will thrive for hundreds of more generations. If the Great Collapse and Great Die-off is inevitable because we and our institutions continue to refuse to alter our unsustainable fossil fuel behavior, at least, the Great Collapse can be utilized as what had to take place for a new, and potentially better beginning for humanity. (Click here to learn about that the ideas of a new Sustainable Prosperity.)
A major good news of the upgraded Job One for Humanity mission is that the most unthinkable global warming reality of humanity crossing the carbon 600 parts per million (ppm,) extinction tipping point within in just a few decades (described in full on this page) can possibly still be slowed down just enough so that some, probably much smaller portion of humanity survives. This slowing could be achieved by immediately enacting the greatest government-driven mass mobilization of our civilization's resources to radically cut fossil fuel use as described in our Job One Plan, Part 3.
Unfortunately, most of our world is ensconced presently in some form of global warming denial or global warming ignorance or intentional deception, and not just the most obvious kind related to whether global warming is real or not. Most of the world isn't even close to realizing how bad global warming already is or, how bad it's going to get far sooner than anyone's telling you, (except for organizations like ourselves.)
Our collective job then is to first prepare ourselves, our families, our businesses and those few brave and bright individuals who are able to see, feel or understand the harsh reality of what is coming.
It will not be pretty or easy.
Our world will change dramatically in just a short 10 to 20 years from now.
Our mission is to help those we can who are ready to navigate this uncertain, perilous, and threatening future which has now become our banquet of unthinkable and unavoidable global warming consequences.
More About Our Life-Critical Mission
Because of these new global warming realities as (found on this page,) our educational mission has become to make you aware and warn both you and society about the most important global warming extinction tipping point of carbon 600 ppm (parts per million.) Once we cross this final 600 ppm tipping point we enter extinction-level global warming a 5°C increase in average global temperature and the last phases of the Climageddon Scenario. (Once we cross the carbon 500 PPM tipping point we will have a 4°C increase in average global temperature and all ice on earth will begin melting. Anything at or above a 4°Celcius increase in average global temperature would be incompatible with an organized global society and would be beyond adaptation!)
We also want to help you do everything within your power to cause a cut in all developing nations carbon emissions by 75% by 2025 and then cut down to zero by 2035 as the only honest solution with any realistic hope of keeping us safe from the likelihood of extinction. We either successfully do these fossil fuel cuts to this level or most of us under 50, our children and our grandchildren (eventually as much as 70-90% of the population,) will suffer and die from global warming escalating consequences as soon as 2050-2070 (depending on where you live in the world.)
Never forget, if we fail, there will be literally no bearable future you or I would want to survive through if we do not make the required critical fossil fuel cuts mentioned previously. Never forget we are not talking about vague statistics here, but the lives of you, your family and billions of other individuals, families, and children all over the world! Click here to see your first action steps on the Job One plan.
We will also help you prepare for (Part 1 of the Job One Plan,) and adapt to (Part 2 of the Job One Plan,) our rapidly escalating global warming extinction emergency in order that we can still salvage whatever we can of humanity and civilization
How our mission will be executed:
- We vigorously promote that there is no other way to survive this emergency unless we come together immediately and cooperate as one human family to reach the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction goals. This is because if we do not cooperate in a massive global emergency mobilization of ALL of humanity's required resources there will be NO winners! Even the ultra-wealthy will only survive temporarily migrating to the far north. Our core message is quite simple. Either we all cooperate on resolving this emergency immediately or we all die! (See part 3 and 4 of the Job One Plan for more information on this no-win situation if we do not cooperate.)
- We promote the honest global warming hope that ONLY if we prevent ourselves from crossing the carbon 600 ppm final battle line, will there still be a small window of opportunity for humanity and the best of our civilization to survive.
- We use the best climate science available.
- We will promote the mass global mobilization and governmental actions for radically increasing green energy generation. This will not solve the fossil fuel problem in time, but it will help slow down the coming consequences a bit more to save more individuals.
- We do only what is deadline and effectiveness prioritized in the proper sequence to save as much of humanity and civilization as we can.
- We will provide honest global warming consequence prediction timetables and a new model called the Climageddon Scenario. (This is very critical prediction information will keep you from being surprised so that you have adequate time to prepare for the unavoidable coming consequences.
- We use the free Job One Plan to help individuals slow and lessen what is now unavoidable, cope with the emotional implications of our now out of control global warming, create emergency preparedness, and effectively adapt as long as we can for a difficult future.
- We foster tapping into our deepest philosophical and spiritual reserves to help us endure and make sense of the tremendous suffering and sacrifice ahead.
- We promote utilizing this unprecedentedly difficult and urgent situation to enhance and expand the meaning and purpose of our lives, and to help us develop and broaden our character.
- We promote maintaining as positive of a perspective as is possible throughout all of the coming hardships. Click here to see a summary of the 16 surprise positive perspectives on things that can happen in this emergency that might help you sustain your positive perspective through this challenge.
- We actively promote enjoying your life today as fully as is possible because there are no guarantees and we may not succeed.
- We practice that there is no one to blame for this out of control global warming extinction emergency. For the last three decades, our current governmental systems have so protected or incentivized fossil fuel use that curtailing it was all but impossible. Additionally, the climate is so complex that only a handful of individuals had both the intellectual bandwidth and the years of climate study to fully grasp how global warming would get out of our control and become out of control so fast. Those few individuals did not have sufficient governmental influence to prevent global warming from becoming out of control. The last thing we need to do is to polarize and waste resources in energy-depleting blame.
The substeps to achieving our full mission above for individuals are:
- To help individuals first understand and then predict the next wave of global warming-aggravated disasters using the warning signs that almost all of us will inevitably experience either now, soon or in the near future. Click here for that information.
- To help individuals create the emergency backup plans and emergency supplies they will need for short-term recovery from the escalating consequences of global warming aggravated disasters and out of control global warming. Click here for details on how to do this.
- To help individuals, wherever possible, to adapt locally to the new realities of out of control global warming. Click here for details on how to do this.
- Where local adaptation strategies are neither possible nor wise, to help as many people as possible migrate to global warming-safe locations. (This also means relocating essential key infrastructure near or above the 45th parallel north, near, or below the 45th parallel south. Click here for details on how to do this.)
- to educate individuals and groups on how to create their personal lifestyles and livelihoods toward a true Sustainable Prosperity. This along with key collective actions by our governments will in turn also help slow and lessen the speed of this rapidly unfolding catastrophe. (If global warming caused extinction seems unrealistic to you, please see the phase-by-phase global warming extinction process as it unfolds described in the Climageddon Scenario overview here or more fully in the new Climageddon book.)

Mission Statement Upgrade Version 5.0, August 20, 2019
Job One For Humanity has been online since early 2008. Although there were earlier partial versions, the first full version of the Job One For Humanity Plan was created in early 2011 to help address the lack of adequate progress in fixing global warming over the last 35 years.
An extensive meta-systemic and dialectical analysis of the global warming data and research was conducted at that time. Because of that new research and analysis of the global warming data of that time, both data integrity problems were uncovered and new global warming solution strategies were discovered.
Many of the uncovered data problems and new solutions of the Job One For Humanity Plan are now helping to ignite other environmental organizations into taking new and more effective actions and, our Job One Plan is constantly being updated with new research and analysis.
About the science in the Job One For Humanity Plan
Because climate science is constantly evolving the Job One For Humanity Plan we continually amend or update our information as more current and reliable new climate research becomes available. Using a wise and continual openness to scientific falsification, we invite both our visitors and members to always make up their own minds as to the usefulness and validity of our current Job One Plan conclusions and action steps.
If you see any error in our climate data, presentation, or predictions Please present your criticism and contrary information to firstname.lastname@example.org
We acknowledge that due to the paucity of climate tipping point research, both Job One for Humanity and all climate destabilization experts could be partially, or even completely wrong concerning any of the conclusions regarding future levels of average global temperature, global warming consequences or climate destabilization timetables.
(Special readers note: You are about to read some very alarming facts about our current global warming extinction emergency. We trust you will make up your own mind about what to do after thinking carefully about the facts that we are presenting.
We have learned that not everyone decides to take the same remedial or protective actions once they get over the initial shock of what they are about to read. Because we all are different and have differenct circumstances, we have provided the new Job One for Humanity Global Warming Reduction Plan which contains many options for very different kinds of individual or collective responses to our current global warming emergency.
And finally, if you do not at all understand what global warming is or how it works, we strongly advise you click here first and then continue with the rest of this document.)
"You cannot be called an alarmist if there really is something to be alarmed about." Unknown
Welcome to a not-so-happy summary of the current global warming extinction emergency which we all now face within our lifetimes. Before you read the global warming details provided below, it is critical to first read this critical new article which fully explains:
1. why we are already in an undeclared state of a global warming extinction emergency and,
2. what we must now do.
Once you have read the above new article, in the rest of this article you will discover additional stark facts and science about how fast global warming is escalating.
While reading all of these disturbing materials, keep calm and keep in mind that if we act wisely, together and with urgency, there is still a remaining window of opportunity (up until 2025.) in which we can slow down the global warming extinction emergency enough, so that far more of us will be able to survive it.
Why 35 years of global warming and fossil fuel reduction failure?
In spite of almost 35 years of warnings by credible scientists and the work of the environmental movement, plus a preponderance of collaborating scientific evidence, as well as numerous conferences and previous treaties, the carbon dioxide and methane pollution of our atmosphere, has not stopped, slowed, or even leveled off. On the contrary, it is getting worse faster than ever before!
As you can see, we are not doing very well.
Leading climate scientists like James Hansen, who originally warned us about the global warming danger 35 years ago, say we would remain safe if carbon in the atmosphere did not go over 350 parts per million (ppm). As of June of 2019 we are at about carbon 414 ppm and increasing at about 3 ppm per year in a near exponential progression.
When you combine the heating effect of carbon with the other greenhouse gases, it is called the CO2e ppm rating. CO2e, or carbon dioxide equivalent. CO2e is a standard unit for measuring all greenhouse gases in terms of the amount of warming they create compared to CO2.carbon footprints.
When you include atmospheric methane and the other greenhouse gas pollutants, our current adjusted CO2e rating has already risen to the shocking level of 430 ppmv of CO2e! Worse yet, we will be at carbon 450 ppm in 10 years or less when we include atmospheric methane in our calculations.
To put this in a time-lapse perspective, from 1850 to about 1950, the increase in carbon pollution was steady at about 1 ppm per year. From 1950 to 2000, the increase rose to 2 ppm per year, and now in its current exponential curve, it is at about 3 ppm per year and rising rapidly toward 3-4 ppm per year. If carbon continues to rise in this exponential, nonlinear way, virtually unchecked by our ineffective previous actions, the increase could easily reach a level of 4-5 ppm per year by 2025.
As you can see below, carbon has been rising since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in England.

According to James Hansen, a carbon 450 ppm level would eventually correspond and develop into an average global temperature increase of 6° Celsius (10.8° Fahrenheit) in this century and the end of human civilization as we’ve come to know it. Based on carbon ppm levels already in the system and reaching the 450 mark, this also means at least another 2.7° Celsius (4.9° Fahrenheit) global temperature increase beyond where we are now is the eventual and inescapable future reality.
This 2.7° Celsius would also be the most realistic minimal temperature increase to project as part of any future planning over the next 10-30 years. Bear in mind that even this scenario applies only if everything goes perfectly and we cross no additional global warming tipping points.
Unfortunately, it is already certain that because of our ongoing denial and delay in addressing escalating global warming, atmospheric carbon in parts per million will most likely continue to rapidly rise beyond the carbon 450-550 ppm total, which translates to a 3° to 4° plus Celsius increase (5.4° to 7.2°+ Fahrenheit) up to as much as a 6° Celsius (10.8° Fahrenheit) increase in average global temperature. (A 4° Celsius increase [7.2° Fahrenheit] in average global temperature would become “Hell on earth” as Mark Lynas, author of Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet, has stated. Additionally, anything at or above a 4°Celcius increase in average global temperature would be incompatible with an organized global society and would be beyond adaptation!)
Hansen’s projections for “ending human civilization as we know it” are not the same as mass human extinction (as much as 70-90 % of humanity dying in as little as 30-50 years,) as we approach carbon 500 ppm and carbon 600 ppm which turn into the the 5° or 6° Celsius (10.8° to about 12° Fahrenheit) temperature levels. In Hansen’s 6° Celsius rise coming from eventually crossing the carbon 450 ppm mark, what would be considered normal, stable, comfortable, or predictable daily life in developed nations will become severely impaired and dysfunctional to say the least.
In undeveloped nations, there will be a high and consistent level of chaos and breakdown that will rapidly render most of these nations politically and economically unsustainable. As it is already occurring, the chaos of existing less-developed nations destabilized by factors such as war and the global warming extinction emergency will then affect the more developed and stable nations far beyond just the current massive migrations of climagees escaping the suffering and heat.
In spite of all the media PR, 21 United Nations climate conferences, endless warnings from credible scientists over the last 30 + years, and national reduction pledges and treaties, things are worsening in a nearly exponential progression (2,4,8,16, etc.). There is no way to deny we are not only losing the escalating global warming battle, and we are losing it at a progressively faster rate!
Instead of enacting the needed changes when they were far easier, more gradual, and far less costly, we must now take radical, painful, and costly tough medicine if we are going to save the future. The changes that would have been merely inconvenient 35 years ago will now become nearly unbearable.
Some of today’s most disturbing global warming facts
We are not receiving adequate accurate facts about how bad global warming is now, or how bad it will REALLY become. The heavily lobbied global media decline to alarm us to the real dangers in order to allow the fossil fuel industry to continue business as usual. Click here to see how bad we are actually doing in reducing fossil fuel use globally.
Current atmospheric fossil fuel burning-related carbon ppm values are now at 413. This is higher than at any other time in the last 1 million years (possibly higher than at any time in the last 25 million years). This new carbon pollution record represents an increase of 85 carbon ppm in the 55 years since David Keeling began making his revolutionary atmospheric carbon pollution measurements at Mauna Loa. (See graphs in this and previous chapters).
Carbon pollution accumulating in the atmosphere has been increasing even faster over the last few decades. It is now nearly certain that if we refuse to take immediate, effective measures to resolve global warming, future increases will happen at even faster rates.
Global average temperatures have the potential to rise far faster than what we normally experience. For example, about 9600 BC, in the Boreal climatic phase, global temperatures rose 7° C (12.6° F) in less than a decade, pushing the ice sheets into rapid collapse and sending sea levels soaring.
Our 35-year inability to control the global warming extinction emergency is due in part to:
The lack of national and international verifiable and enforceable international laws that would make continued large-scale carbon and methane pollution of the atmosphere a strongly punished activity or crime.
The physical time lags in developing and deploying the infrastructure needed for the new green energy technologies. As we are progressing now, it will likely take another 30-50 years.
But, if everyone on the planet and every government simultaneously agreed to scale up green energy generation immediately and there were no budgetary or resource restrictions in completing this life-critical project, it would still take many many decades to put that infrastructure in place.
If escalating global warming and its consequent climate destabilization proceed to the levels currently being predicted, it will eventually cost the global society hundreds of trillions of dollars in crisis recovery, as well as soaring insurance rates, massive real estate losses and depreciation, and massive coastal and other infrastructure losses, in addition to the vast amount of human suffering and death.
Right now, most nations are struggling with debt and their economies are in trouble with anemic annual growth. How will many of these nations, particularly the weakest ones, remain politically or financially viable, stable, or even continue to exist if another 5% or more of their total GDP (the Stern Review) is drained off each year into the continually escalating costs of global warming-caused climate destabilization? Current estimates from a book called Climate Shock project all global warming consequences will cost 10 percent and maybe far more of the world’s total GDP by 2100.
The global warming extinction emergency is already here! Its superstorms, flooding, seasonal disruptions, wildfires, heat waves, migrating insect infestations, and droughts will continue increasing in magnitude and frequency. According to a recent analysis from scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), "[t]he worst-case projections for global warming may be the most likely.”
The next battle now lies in keeping global warming from rising to an extinction-level event where human-caused carbon dioxide and methane levels in the atmosphere push the global temperature increases to 4°-6° Celsius (7.2°-10.8° Fahrenheit) above preindustrial levels and beyond. How we can survive and fix this is found in the new Job One for Humanity Plan found on this website.

There is far more information about the escalating warming emergency in the new Climageddon book.
In this new book, you will find out why anything at or above a 4°Celcius increase in average global temperature would be incompatible with an organized global society and would be beyond our ability to adapt to it!
