We are an all-volunteer organization. Our volunteers are independent individuals passionate about fixing the climate change emergency before it is too late.
Our organization's core is composed of think tank climate change research analysts. Some of the world's best climate scientists anonymously or openly volunteer their skills, analysis, and perspectives to help us create the uncensored and independent climate change analysis on this website. (Those climate scientists who contribute anonymously do so because of the long history of defunding and unwarranted reputational attacks on academics who openly speak out on the severe consequences and mass extinction-accelerating nature of our climate change emergency.)
Due to the growing harassment and targeting of global warming scientists, researchers, activists, volunteers, and other staff working at climate change educational organizations by global warming deniers (and those in the fossil fuel industry funding them and their agents), we do not publish information on our staff or volunteers or their contact information unless they have specifically given us permission to do so.
Our volunteers also handle our social media, marketing, research, local events, and accounting. Volunteers do all of the blog postings as they have done for years.
Our volunteers are not authorized agents or legal representatives of the Job One Organization. Only our board of directors makes statements, sets positions, or can take actions officially representing our non-profit organization.

The Executive Director, Lawrence Wollersheim
Since its inception in 2008, Lawrence Wollersheim has been the Executive Director of Job One for Humanity. He is involved in all aspects of Job One for Humanity's mission, including global warming research analysis. He brings years of experience in successful social advocacy and social advocacy litigation.
Lawrence has taken high-level training and is skilled in system theory and the dialectical metasystemic analysis of complex adaptive systems. These skills are used in climate research and analyzing many studies within the numerous areas of climate research. In particular, he looks for omissions, errors, and patterns that could not be easily seen unless one was using those new thinking tools and looking horizontally across many research studies in the different subsections of climate science.
As a social advocate, Lawrence also helped to win one of the largest California SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation) lawsuits to date against an organization that was using excessive litigation tactics to unfairly financially overwhelm, harass and intimidate an under-funded non-profit social advocacy organization. His early SLAPP legal victory and precedent also has been a powerful legal aid to all non-profit organizations in legal battles with big corporations filing meritless lawsuits designed to silence and bankrupt their less-wealthy nonprofit opponents. (See Lawrence Wollersheim's Wikipedia listing here.)
Lawrence Wollersheim is also on the staff of the Universe Institute (www.UniverseInstitute.org) and Universe Day (www.TheUniverseDay.org.)
Lawrence spent over 20 years earlier in his career as the founder and managing director of HealthKeeper Inc., a software company specializing in assisting dieters, diabetics, and individuals with cardiovascular problems related to weight and nutrition. At HealthKeeper, Lawrence designed software and invented the NutriCode, a colored bar code that allows the user to understand a food label’s nutritional content and its impact on their daily diet goals without having to do any math.
Lawrence Wollersheim also is a director of Universe Spirit (www.UniverseSpirit.org), an organization that has helped birth the new Universe Evolutionary Worldview, the principles of Sustainable Prosperity, Universe Citizenship, and other Evolutioneer programs, like Evolution Spirituality, an open-source, meta-spirituality grounded solidly in the sciences and the principles of universe evolution.
Since 2002 Lawrence has also been the Executive Director for all operational aspects of Universe Spirit's Universe Evolutionary Worldview research, educational activities, publishing, web operations, and all related marketing.
Since 1983 as a major part of his life’s passion, Lawrence has been continuously studying, experiencing, and being committed to forwarding the balanced relationship of science and healthy personal spirituality, particularly as it relates to evolutionary science and the personal direct spiritual experience of Ultimate Reality found within both science's discoveries and the discoveries of the world’s great eastern and western spiritual traditions.
Over the years, he has written extensively about unhealthy spiritual practices.
From his various experiences above, Lawrence has an extensive 40-year background in both day-to-day business operations and information technology, which he is able to draw from for his work in the non-profit, for-profit, and social advocacy sectors.
Lawrence Wollersheim is a polymath and autodidact. He is also dyslexic, which he credits with helping him to keep some sense of humor and humility in his personal life and his creative social advocacy work.
Executive Director Additional Background Experience
For several decades, Lawrence was mentored by and was one of the few protégés of Dr. Margaret Singer, Professor Emeritus at UC Berkeley. Dr. Singer, before her passing, was the world’s leading authority on mind control, destructive religious practices, and destructive cults. Dr. Singer published over 160 papers and was also one of the co-founders of Factnet in 1993.
Since 1993, Lawrence has also been a managing board director at FactNet Inc. (www.factnet.org), a nonprofit educational organization. Over a 32-year period, both before and during his tenure at FactNet and Job One for Humanity, Lawrence was involved in a series of 5 lawsuits against the infamous Scientology cult. His litigation success in all 5 of these lawsuits against Scientology established important new legal precedents on freedom of thought and informed consent in alleged religious settings.
These new legal "freedom of thought and belief" precedents are currently part of many US law students' first-year constitutional law studies. To date, Lawrence Wollersheim has been the only individual to ever successfully sue, win in court, and fully collect over 9 million dollars in verdicts against the Scientology cult.
Please note: About 13 years ago, Factnet evolved its mission from education about coercive and unethical influence tactics to a global warming educational focus.
