There is a lot to update you about on global warming emergency this month especially since we missed last month's update...
We are in a global warming extinction emergency. In a state of emergency, one has little time left to act and fix the emergency. Therefore, we must operate at levels of urgency and direct intervention not utilized before which is commensurate with the larger danger to ensure this emergency will get resolved.
The Job One for Humanity organization has adapted to the new reality we are in a global warming extinction emergency. Accordingly, we have become a respectful disruptor of any individual, company, not-for-profit environmental group or any global warming educational peers who are unintentionally or intentionally presenting false, misleading, diminishing or significantly underestimated global warming information about the real dangers of our global warming extinction emergency.
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, significantly underestimated, diminishing or misleading global warming analysis of facts or, otherwise misrepresents, dummies down or "markets" global warming information in such a way that it becomes counter-productive to resolving the true urgency of the global warming extinction emergency.
We will disrupt this flow of false, underestimated or misleading information wherever we find it to the best of our organization's abilities and resources. We are compelled to disrupt because our current global warming emergency is so great and the time to prevent a massive human, animal, and biological extinction event from occurring within our lifetimes is so short (only until 2025.)
B. Being a disruptor also means that we hold that no well-intended or global warming ill-informed organization or individual has the inherent right to forward false, underestimated or misleading information unchallenged when their actions and ideas lessen either the urgency or the effective means of our global warming extinction emergency.
Our unwelcome role as a respectful disruptor is not just necessary, it 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 could or will eventually cause to the world's efforts to reduce global warming in time to save humanity and the future.
What exactly do we mean by being respectful?
Being respectful means that we will respectfully challenge any organization or individual that presents false, underestimated, diminishing or misleading global warming analysis or, facts counter-productive to resolving the global warming extinction emergency. We will act respectfully because most individuals, companies, and nonprofit organizations are composed of good people and have done many good things for global warming education. In some cases, these same entities may have made essential and significant contributions to the global warming educational movement over many years.
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 "authority endorsed" 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 (the fossil fuel industry,) which have skewed or warped the integrity of other honest climate researchers results.
2. Failed to have any single individual or executive within their organization put in the tens of thousands of pages of challenging deep research reading with the requisite high IQ, complex adaptive system and systems theory analysis skills to have an adequate meta-systemic understanding of one of the most complicated issues of our time.
3. Listened to marketing advisors within their organizations, causing them to self-censor and treat their members like children who cannot be told or deal with the hard painful facts of the global warming extinction emergency.
We will be respectfully disruptive toward the incorrect facts, false beliefs, and ineffective global warming reduction plans of anyone presenting them. We do this only to call attention to more effective actions or more useful global warming facts and analysis.
We will provide useful and accurate information on the global warming state of emergency. This way, we can more quickly reduce global fossil fuel use by executing all of the prioritized and deadline-driven actions necessary to prevent a massive human, animal, and biological extinction event occurring 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 and the future of humanity and the biosphere!
Therefore, if anyone is forwarding false, underestimated, diminishing or misleading ideas that will make it more difficult to slow or resolve the global warming extinction emergency, we will:
1. recognize their legitimate accomplishments and we will first present them with the information on this website privately to help educate them to where they are in error. (By going to the individual or organization privately first we seek not to polarize, but educate. Only if they reject private education and changing their false, underestimated, diminishing or misleading ideas do we result to step two below.)
2. recognize their legitimate accomplishments and if they continue to forward false, underestimated, diminishing or misleading ideas about the global warming extinction emergency we will publicly attack the errors in the information they are presenting the public forums that will provide the most correctional benefits and fully disrupt the status quo of their erroneous educational actions.
We do not seek to polarize or lessen the efforts of any individual or organization seeking to legitimately educate about global warming, but at the twelfth hour of this greatest of all human emergencies we can not and will not allow false, underestimated, diminishing or misleading ideas about the global warming extinction emergency to go unchallenged
The Job One for Humanity Team
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. We may not even hit any fossil fuel reduction targets or deadlines for the next 30-50 years.
Let's start with a few of today’s most concerning global warming facts:
In spite of all the media PR, all the 21 climate conferences over the last 30 years, and all the national reduction pledges, things are not just getting gradually worse in a linear progression (1,2,3,4, etc.), they're getting worse in an exponential progression (2,4,8,16, etc.)! When we measure current rates of toxic carbon and methane pollution going into the atmosphere, there is now no way to deny it; we are not winning the escalating global warming battle!
In spite of 30 years of warnings by credible scientists, the environmental movement and an increasing body of compelling scientific evidence (now agreed to by almost all of the scientists qualified in climate science), the toxic carbon and methane pollution of the atmosphere has not slowed or even leveled off.
Leading climate scientists like James Hansen (former head of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies who also originally warned us about the global warming danger 30 years ago) say that we would remain safe if carbon in the atmosphere did not go over 350 parts per million (ppm). As of February of 2016, carbon ppm was near 405.35 ppm and increasing at about 2-3+ ppm per year in a nonlinear, exponential progression.
Worse yet, if you include atmospheric methane and other greenhouse gas pollutants, our current adjusted carbon ppm is already near 430 ppm or 430 ppm of CO2e! (When you combine the global warming heating effect of carbon with other greenhouse gases it is called the CO2e ppm rating. Also see the rapidly rising carbon only ppm graph curve farther below. It does not show atmospheric methane included.)
See the rapidly rising carbon ppm graph curve just below. Please note that It does not include and show atmospheric methane pollution. If it did, it would be at a effect-combined level of about 430 ppm.
We will be at carbon 450 ppm in 10 years or less if we include atmospheric methane in our calculations. To put this in a time-lapse perspective, from 1850 to about 1950, carbon pollution was steady at about a 1 ppm per year increase. From 1950 to 2000, the increase rose to 2 ppm per year, and now in its current exponential curve it is at 2.75 ppm per year and rising rapidly toward 3+ ppm per year in possibly just a few more years. If carbon continues to rise in this exponentially and nonlinear way and continues virtually unchecked by our ineffective actions as it appears it may, after the year 2025 the increase will reach a possible level of 3-4+ ppm per year from its current level of about 2.7 ppm per year.
According to James Hansen, carbon 450 ppm would correspond to an average global temperature increase of 6 degrees 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 soon reaching the 450 mark, this means that a 2.7-degree Celsius global temperature increase (6 plus degrees Fahrenheit) may already be an inescapable reality.
Unfortunately, it gets much worse! It is also highly probable that because of our denial and delay in facing and addressing the escalating global warming emergency with honest and effective measures, carbon parts per million in the atmosphere will most likely continue to rapidly rise to and beyond carbon 550 ppm, which translates to a 3-4+ degree Celsius increase (6-8+ degrees Fahrenheit) in average global temperature. For every degree of Celsius temperature increase, global food production will drop 10% in many southern areas while the human population will continue to soar toward 9 billion. Climate scientists who are normally guarded in their language call a 4 degree Celsius increase (6-8 degrees Fahrenheit) in average global temperature "Hell on Earth."
More "big picture" global warming facts:
We the general public are not being honestly told how bad escalating global warming actually is right now, or how bad it will become if we continue as we are now. The fossil fuel heavily lobbied or owned global media are telling us what will not alarm us to the real dangers and will allow the fossil fuel industry to continue “business as usual.” Current fossil fuel use values for toxic carbon air pollution are more than 404 parts per million (ppm.) This is higher than at any other time in the last 1 million years (and maybe higher than 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 one and four below.)
Even more disturbing than the historic magnitude of this change is the fact that the rate of toxic carbon pollution accumulating in the atmosphere has been rapidly increasing over the last few decades. If we keep doing only what we have been doing to resolve global warming, this also means that future increases will happen even faster. (See graphs one and two below.)
When averaged over 55 years, the increase in toxic carbon pollution has been about 1.55 ppm per year. However, the most recent data suggest that the annual increase is more than 2.75 ppm of carbon pollution per year. Carbon pollution of our atmosphere is getting worse not better! We are not making progress in reducing our fossil fuel burning addiction.
Our 30-year inability to get the global warming emergency under control is in part due to:
- The lack of national and international verifiable and enforceable international laws making large-scale toxic carbon and methane pollution of the atmosphere a strongly punished crime against both current society members and future generations.
The physical time lags in developing and deploying the infrastructure needed for the new green energy technologies (10-15 years if everyone on the planet and every government all agreed to do this immediately and there were no budgetary or resource restrictions in completing this life-critical project).
The existing carbon pollution momentum already in the atmosphere. It will take numerous decades if not the rest of this century to eliminate it if we could immediately get our carbon 430 ppm level back down to carbon 350 to 325 ppm.
If the escalating global warming emergency and its consequent climate destabilization proceeds 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 depreciation, and massive coastal and other infrastructure losses, in addition to the vast amount of human suffering and death. The Stern Review estimated that the costs of catastrophic climate destabilization will eventually grow to consume as much as 5% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of every nation on earth—and that is not even at climate destabilization's latter, or worse, stages! (The Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change is a 700-page report released for the British government. The report discusses the effect of global warming on the world economy.)
Right now most nations are struggling with over-indebtedness 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 in existence if another 5% or more of their total GDP is drained off each year into the continually escalating costs of climate destabilization?
The global warming emergency and its consequent climate destabilization is already here! Its super storms, flooding, wildfires, heat waves, migrating insect infestations, and droughts will continue increasing in scale, severity, and frequency.
In fact, we are already in a state of irreversible global warming that will last at least another 50 years. We are now facing an extinction-level event where human-caused carbon and methane pollution levels in the atmosphere push the global temperature increases to 5-6 degrees Celsius (8-12 degrees Fahrenheit) and beyond.

Global Warming Emergency Solutions: Our Plan for Reducing Global Fossil Fuel Use and Adapting to the Global Warming Extinction Threat
(If you have just arrived at this page from an Internet search, or if you do not understand how global warming has become an emergency, please read this quick summary page of our current global warming condition before continuing with this page.)
"You cannot be called an alarmist if there really is something to be alarmed about." (Author Unknown.)
There is a lot of difficult and disheartening news about the global warming emergency on this website. There is also much truthful good news.
The Job One for Humanity Plan for global warming adaptation exists because for the last 35 years, we have ignored the warnings of our best scientists and, we have not resolved this crisis (aka the global warming emergency, the climate change emergency, the climate crisis, climate change.)
Enacting the Job One Plan has the highest possible urgency because we have reached our last remaining 6-year window of opportunity to slow down an already ongoing mass extinction process. This 6-year window is also our last chance to prevent initiating a total extinction process.
If we miss this final 6-year window of opportunity, we will go over the climate cliff. We will also cross the four most critical extinction-evoking global warming tipping points and global warming will go out of our meaningful control for centuries to thousands of years!
The good news is that we still do have 6 years left to slow down our current global warming-caused mass extinction process and to prevent a global warming-caused total extinction process from beginning over the next 50-70 years. All we have to do is reach or at least come very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets described here!
There is additional good news in that there is a clear, effective and comprehensive new plan designed to help you reach these 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets and deal with our current global warming extinction emergency.
This new plan will also help you:
1. prepare for and adapt to the next wave of unavoidable global warming catastrophes,
2. help you survive and thrive through what is coming and unavoidable,
2. lower your personal and business fossil fuel use, and
3. help you to get our governments to radically reduce global fossil fuel use by meeting the life-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. This will greatly increase our chances of avoiding a global warming-caused total extinction event. (Please read about the four most dangerous global warming tipping points described here! You will become very clear on the reality of how this total extinction event will unfold.)
All you have to do to do your part in adapting to the global warming challenges we now face is to:
a. select which part of the Job One Plan (below) that is right for you and your current circumstances. And then
b. begin it.
If you have any remaining doubts about the urgency for why you should immediately start the Job One Plan to slow down and resolve the global warming emergency, we strongly recommend that you click here and watch this 4 Minute Global Warming Video by Greta Thunberg given at the United Nations on September 23, 2019. It should help you to understand, but more importantly, feel the seriousness of the global warming-caused emergency we now face and why we must work together to get our politicians to act.
The Job One for Humanity Plan: How to Prepare, Adapt, and Act to have a Reasonable Chance of Surviving and Thriving!
The Job One Plan is based entirely upon the mission of our organization which is:
"To help the world prepare for and adapt to an unavoidable, ongoing global warming-caused mass extinction event while simultaneously, doing everything we can to prevent an even worse, total extinction event."
Which part of the Job One Plan should I start first?
Not everyone decides to take the same preparatory, adaptation, protective, remedial or fossil fuel reduction actions once they have had time to process the current global warming extinction emergency and research.
In general, we recommend doing:
a. Do parts 1 and 2 of the Job One Plan first. They will be essential for your personal adaptation and preparation so you and your loved ones will survive and thrive longer and more comfortably. This initial adapt and prepare focus is because we are already facing a mass extinction event within the next 30-50 years no matter what else we do.
Why do we strongly recommend that you do Part 1 of the Job One Plan action steps first? The reason for this is similar to what occurs on an airplane if there's an emergency underway. In an airline emergency, you are always told to put your oxygen mask on first before trying to help your children, or anyone else. That way, you will be able to preserve yourself and your abilities.
By doing this airplane mask personal preparation and adaption first, you will then also be ready to help others through the emergency and better deal with its consequences or even causes. Similarly, individuals who become aware of the current global warming extinction emergency must also care for and preserve themselves and their loved ones first. This will then allow them to be around for the long and critical remaining battle to slow down escalating global warming enough to prevent total extinction.
b. We next recommend that you do parts 3 and 4 as best you can. They will help prevent a global warming total extinction event. Parts 3 and 4 are especially for those of you that have significant direct or possible indirect influence on your local, regional, or national politicians. Parts three and four are also for those of you who are concerned with having everyone beyond your family and business (humanity, animals, and biological species,) survive longer. And,
c. If you can and, if you have the time, resources, or inclination, please work on all of the four parts of the Job One Plan in the best order for your current circumstances. It's four parts represent our best plan for avoiding total extinction.
More information on which Job One Plan part to start on will be found in the overview of each of the four parts below.
The Job One Plan, Parts 1 and 2: The Adaptation and Preparation Action Steps and Solutions for Individuals, Families and Small Businesses
For most individuals, Part 1 and Part 2 of the Job One Plan are the parts we generally recommend most people to do first. We strongly recommend that you start with Part 1 if you do not have:
1. direct connections of real influence on government politicians or,
2. indirect connections of real influence upon politicians through celebrities, ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, ultra-wealthy individuals or national intelligence agencies.
(If you do have direct or indirect connections of real influence upon politicians, we strongly recommend you begin Job One Part 3 while also actively working on Part 1. We have so little time left to achieve the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and prevent a massive human, animal, and biological extinction event from occurring within our lifetimes that, we absolutely have to immediately get our politicians to enact the critical government-driven action steps of Part 3 of the Job One Plan done!)
About Part 1 of the Job one Plan which is Your Personal Plan B and Survival Kit for the Global Warming and Climate Change Extinction Emergency
You will learn how to best prepare yourself, family and small business for the soon-arriving and unavoidable 20 worst consequences of global warming. Everyone now needs to have basic emergency preparation in place to survive the worst of the continually arriving new levels of global warming consequences while they also work on and through the other three Job One steps as described below. This is the single most important step to begin first! You may work on the other steps well you are working on the steps of Part 1.
For Part 1 of the Job one Plan click here.
About Part 2 of the Job One Plan: Critical Adaptation and Fossil Fuel Reduction Actions
You will learn the best individual actions to adapt to what global warming consequences are now unavoidable as well as how to become more sustainable to help do your individual part to slow and lessen the 20 worse consequences of global warming. This step will also help you use far fewer fossil fuels.
This step with all of its sub-steps will take some time to complete, but while you are working on it you can work on other action steps of Part 1 as well. By itself, Part 2 will not save us from the harshest and now unavoidable consequences of our past actions and inactions, but it will help to slow and lessen global warming hopefully just enough that more of us can be comfortable and survive a bit longer.
Parts 1 and 2 of the Job One Plan (immediately above,) are the individual actions you can take but please note, these individual actions alone are nowhere close to enough to ultimately save us from the coming worse consequences of global warming and likely extinction.
For Part 2 of the Job One Plan Click here.
The Job One Plan, Part 3: The Critical Solutions Needed to be Immediately Executed by Our Politicians to Prevent Total Extinction.
If you already have connections of direct real influence on government politicians or, you do have indirect connections of real influence on politicians through celebrities, ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, or ultra-wealthy individuals or national intelligence agencies, Part 3 is the area we recommend you begin (while you are also doing Part 1.) This way, you are working for the best while you are also preparing for the worst.
The needed actions for politicians to take to prevent our total extinction is found only in Parts 3 of the Job One Plan. It contains what absolutely must be done immediately by our politicians if we are going to have any real chance of avoiding the beginning stages of total extinction within as little as the next 50-70 years.
Unfortunately, it is only the politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, and individuals that currently have sufficient direct power or influence to enact the challenging government-driven actions described in Part 3 of the Job One Plan. Only their actions will work to reduce greenhouse gases down to (or close to.) the 2025 target levels and then to carbon neutrality and net zero in time to save us from extinction. Only Part 3 of the Job One Plan executed successfully will eventually return us to safe atmospheric carbon levels of carbon 350 - 270 parts per million, [ppm]. (We are at about carbon 414 ppm now.)
The action steps described in Part 3 below are not actions that can be successfully achieved by common citizens who have little direct or influence on politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, and individuals. (Part 4 of Job One Plan potentially will help the rest of us get some creative influence over our politicians.)
More About Part 3 of the Job One Plan
It focuses exclusively upon a single, painful and dominant global warming extinction emergency reality. We must make immediate, radical and costly reductions in our fossil fuel energy generation and use that will be achievable only through government-driven, government-enforced, and government-penalized new laws and actions. This is the single most important part of the Job One Plan.
If we do not successfully execute this step without any further delays, there is no practical hope we can prevent escalating global warming from passing the mass human extinction-level and proceeding to the total extinction level.
Please also keep in mind that Part 4 of the Job One plan contains essential reading for individuals who do have a direct influence on their politicians. It also contains several sections on why many wealthy individuals, corporations, etc will want to actively help us solve this emergency!
For Part 3 of the Job One Plan, click here.
Part 4: Solutions that Might Help Activate Celebrities, Ultra-wealthy Corporations, Philanthropies, Individuals, and Intelligence Agencies to Force Governments and Politicians to Act
Part 4 contains creative ideas on how individuals without direct influence on politicians might create an indirect influence on politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, or ultra-wealthy individuals to help get the must-do and critical government-directed actions found in Part 3 done.
Part 4 also contains critical reading for individuals who do have a direct influence on their politicians — particularly on why many wealthy individuals, corporations and nations will want to help us solve this emergency.
Getting the governments of the world and their politicians to work and act together is a beyond Herculean task. This is because saving our future will require nothing less than a massive mobilization of:
a. most of our politicians,
b. most of the major governments of the world and,
c. most of the world's resources working together to enact fossil fuel reduction laws that will be immensely difficult and unpopular until people understand that if we do not make these reductions there will be no future for humanity!
Part 4 offers indirect influence strategies, bypasses, and creative workarounds that if enough of us do them, might help indirectly influence the politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, or individuals that do have the influence to enact the critical government-driven actions described in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.
The very good news is that, if we successfully execute the parts 3 of the Job One Plan, some of humanity and many other species will survive the global warming total extinction emergency.
You now have all that you need to select where to start the Job One Plan. We do need your help and creativity to meet (or get very close to,) the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets as well as to prepare for the next wave of more severe and extensive global warming consequences.
We are an all-volunteer organization. If you do not self-organize your time and resources and help as best as you can, the global warming extinction emergency will evolve from an already massive human, animal and biological species extinction event within your lifetime to a total extinction event beginning within the next 50-70 years.

send us an email at manage@JobOneforHumanity and, let us know how you are doing. What you say or have learned may be essential to inspire, support and encourage others in our monthly newsletter.
What an honest and effective solution and plan must do to end the global warming extinction emergency?
a. honestly face the real conditions currently present at the time and location at which you find yourself,
b. diligently locate all of the critical barriers that will keep you from reaching your objective, and it must,
c. use a systematic and comprehensive approach to prioritize all of the critical path actions needed to resolve those barriers before critical deadlines or tipping points are crossed to get you to your objective.
Even more good news
Unlike most all other global warming reduction plans, the Job One Plan for adapting to the global warming extinction emergency does all of the above by.
1. candidly confronting the harsh new reality on just how bad global warming extinction threat currently is. (See this page for that reality check.)
2. clearly defining all the critical barriers that must be overcome. (See this page for that reality check.)
3. providing a prioritized and effective plan for ALL critical path individual and collective actions that need to be taken to critical deadlines (Found in the Job One Plan links on this page.)
Everyone can find something to contribute and do in the many effective action steps found in the four-part Job One Plan described on this page.
Here is a quick sneak peek at the three most important actions in the Job One Plan:
a. have our world governments immediately enforce the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, (fossil fuel usage is the prime controllable cause of our current global warming extinction emergency.)
b. make both the individual and business emergency preparations for the already unavoidable consequences of global warming. and,
c. rapidly adapt our families, businesses, and nations to the realities of a future of escalating global warming consequences. (By doing so more of us will survive and thrive longer and be more comfortable.)
The first of the three critical actions above when successfully completed will help to slow down the worse consequences of global warming from continuing to increase in frequency, severity, and scale. The first action (above) when successfully completed can prevent us from crossing the global warming total extinction beginning level tipping point of carbon 600 parts per million (ppm.)
We can no longer continue with business as usual. The gradual and inadequate fossil fuel usage reductions currently being promoted by many government "authorities" simply will not work in time to save us. (What we must do to reach the 2025 global fossil fuel use reduction target levels is explained in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.)
How the deadline-driven Job One Plan of global warming solutions came about
For over 11 years the Job One for Humanity organization has been creating a continually updated meta-systemic overview and analysis of all relevant global warming research. (The meta-systemic analysis used for global warming examines the systems and subsystems involved in global warming from a meta-perspective that considers them both as stand-alone and individual systems as well as being interconnected and interdependent with and upon each other. The meta-systemic analysis involves detailed analysis of processes, contexts, relationships, and the continuous transformations occurring among and between interconnected and interdependent systems and subsystems within the selected area of analysis.)
This meta-systemic overview and analysis process creates a highly useful "big picture" as well as a Hegelian dialectical systems model of the coming global warming consequences, counter-consequences, and timetables.
This ongoing an original analysis of the most reliable global warming science has produced the current set of prioritized and practical global warming solutions found in the form of the four-part Job One for Humanity Plan.
(We will also soon have a new downloadable PDF file that includes all 4 parts of the recently upgraded Job One Plan in one easy free download. We will notify all website subscribers and members when it goes up.)
Sign the Petition to Declare a Global Warming State of Emergency and Help Prevent Mass Human, Animal and Biological Extinction within Our Lifetimes
We, the citizens of our nation and of our Earth, are endowed with certain rights, powers, and obligations, which demand we act to preserve and protect the future of humanity as well as Earth's other animal and biological life.
Based on abundant scientific evidence, we recognize that our global climate is rapidly warming and becoming increasingly unstable due to human-caused atmospheric carbon pollution primarily at this time from the burning of fossil fuels.
We also recognize that in spite of 35 years of credible scientific warnings, global warming is still rising and is now at dangerous levels!
We have already seen global warming-aggravated weather, like record-breaking floods, hurricanes, and wildfires. We have witnessed the "worst in centuries" droughts and dust storms. We have experienced alternating unseasonably cold then warm winters, extreme storms, bomb cyclones and rain bombs where weeks or months worth of rain falls in a few hours or a few days.
With our own eyes, we see that something very abnormal is happening to the previous stability of our normal weather and seasonal patterns. We have also noticed that global warming connected consequences (like those just mentioned,) are becoming more frequent, more severe and are affecting larger and larger areas!
We recognize that if we do not immediately and radically reduce our global fossil fuel burning behaviors before additional global warming tipping points are crossed, the destabilization of our global climate will continue at even faster rates causing among other things, unprecedented crop failures and unthinkable mass starvation.
Our brightest climate scientists have determined that if we do not meet or come very close too the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets (found here,) we will face a massive extinction event where as much as 70-90% of humanity will die in as little as the next 30-50 years. Unsurprisingly, escalating global warming will not only affect humanity's survival possibilities. It also presents an equally grave and ever-increasing extinction threat to animal and other biological species as well.
Rising global warming have already become the 21st century's single greatest disruptor of economic, political, social and biological stability. It will also act to amplify our other largest global problems.
No one is ultimately safe from this global warming extinction emergency. Global warming consequences are already affecting millions in many areas of the world. Many individuals and businesses are already being forced to deal with escalating catastrophes, food and resource depletion, and the mass migration of desperate climagees (climate migrants.) In the not too distant future, global warming catastrophes will be affecting hundreds of millions then billions of individuals everywhere on Earth!
We now face a world in which rising global warming can cause mass human extinction and create increasing social, economic and political chaos, not sometime near 2100, but as soon as the next 3-5 decades.
Worse yet, as our average global temperatures continue to rise, the world's six other major social, economic and political problems (see * list below) will also worsen, amplify each other and cross-react with each other and the 11 key global warming tipping points (found here.)
Our largest global problems (other than immediate global nuclear war or nuclear biological or biological terrorism) are:
- Conventional war and regional conflicts*
- Food and resource depletion*
- Political instability and injustice*
- Growing economic inequity, poverty, and instability*
- Water pollution, water table loss, and other pollution*
- Increasing droughts, floods, and wildfires
- Increasing desertification and deforestation
- Loss of biodiversity
- Ocean fish stock depletion
- Rising sea levels
- Increasing potential for pandemics and other global health crises
Rising global warming can further increase the severity, frequency, and scale (size) of the above other largest global problems we all now face, making them even harder to resolve!
Despite 35 years of scientific reports as well as 21 International conferences about the near-certain extinction effects of the carbon (and methane,) pollution of our atmosphere, global warming temperatures have both continued to rise and have accelerated to levels that have passed dangerous tipping points.
There is true urgency to this global warming extinction emergency!
Our average global temperature and atmospheric carbon levels are far too close to crossing the near-extinction and final extinction tipping points.
If we fail to make or get very close to the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets, this extinction emergency becomes a no-win game for everyone, no matter how much money or power they might have and, no matter where they might try to escape to!
Our current global warming extinction emergency can only be resolved by immediately reducing the human-caused production of carbon and other key greenhouse gases produced directly and indirectly from the global burning of fossil fuels.
At this "it is almost already too little too late" moment in history, the necessary fossil fuel use reductions needed to save us can only be achieved by successfully meeting our last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets enforced by our governments!
Therefore, as global citizens of every nation on Earth, we demand that our national political leaders act now before it is too late to prevent mass human, animal and biological extinction within our lifetimes!
We demand that they:
1. Meet immediately to formally declare both a national and international Global Warming Extinction Emergency.
2. Pass enforceable and verifiable national and international laws that would successfully achieve the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets or, at least get us very close to them. (Even getting close to the 2025 targets allow us to slow down what is coming so we can be better prepared.) And,
3. Call for the immediate mass mobilization of ALL the necessary resources and personnel to execute ALL critical actions required to fully resolve our current global warming extinction emergency. (See Part 3 of the Job One for Humanity Plan for a complete list of all critical government-driven actions needed to save the future.)
By electronically signing this petition (in the box below,) I am personally and officially notifying my national politicians of this demand to immediately meet and take all required actions described in this emergency petition in order to protect, preserve, and advance the continuing evolution of humanity and life on Earth.
Furthermore, realizing that most of the worst global warming consequences will take centuries to thousands of years to repair, which will create an unthinkable nightmare for any surviving future generations, I further pledge to continue to act to help resolve this extinction threat and emergency until it is over.

(Special readers note: You are about to read some very alarming facts about our current global warming extinction emergency (aka climate extinction emergency, Holocene extinction, sixth mass extinction event, climate crisis, climate 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 different 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.)

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.
