We are in a global warming extinction emergency, and we are running out of time. We only have until about 2025 to reduce global fossil fuel use sufficiently to maintain any reasonable control of our futures and prevent the extinction of humanity. (The reason this 2025 date is accurate is covered in the verification links at the bottom of the page.)
Our continually escalating emergency implies that we must adjust our strategies accordingly. Necessary or obligatory disruption is what we call this required adjustment to the extreme emergency we now face.
In a state of emergency, one has very little time left to act and fix the crisis. Therefore, we must now operate at levels of true urgency and direct peaceful and legal disruptive intervention commensurate with the large-scale dangers we face. We do this only to ensure that the global warming extinction emergency and its related consequences will be resolved in time.
We can still prevent total extinction, but only if we act immediately and get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel targets. We will also have to manage our 11 other global crises and disruptively speak out about the painful truths of this emergency until more of the world is listening.
If we fail to act in time, there is no collective escape for anyone from the 12 global crises we face (led by accelerating global warming.)
Why we disrupt
We all are now compelled and obligated to disrupt. We disrupt because the last remaining window of opportunity is so small (we have until about 2025 to prevent a near-total or total extinction event from occurring beginning about 2070.)
Accordingly, we have become a necessary disruptor of any company, not-for-profit environmental group, or any global warming educational peers who unintentionally or intentionally presents illusions or false, misleading, diminishing, or significantly underestimated global warming information about the real dangers and deadlines of the global warming extinction emergency! Our disruptive actions also focus on the spreading of illusions about real threats of global scale and severity with massive negative consequences.
We do this because anyone presenting illusions, delusions, false, misleading, diminishing, or significantly underestimated global warming information about the facts, dangers, and deadlines of our global warming extinction emergency is also hiding the real risks and urgency from society. They can do this many ways:
a. by making society think that the problem is being correctly solved or,
b. that we are making the correct and necessary progress to avert catastrophe.
Both assumptions are dangerously incorrect because, when they occur, society thinks things are safe or that adequate progress is being made. Then society does little to nothing.
Organizations that intentionally or unintentionally create illusions about current progress or the correct solutions are the most dangerous! Because of those illusions, a society, group, or individual believing the illusion may try to solve the wrong problem or enact the wrong solutions without realizing they are on the wrong course.
Creating illusionary solutions is particularly dangerous when it denies the correct answers to the right problem, which are critical to averting real crises, deadlines, and tipping points. Moreover, when illusions block seeing reality for what it is, it is far harder to make any changes that would be appropriate in that current reality.
When does Necessary Disruption become Obligatory Disruption?
Necessary disruption becomes obligatory disruption when the scale of damage is so large and severe that one is obligated to disrupt the activities causing the genuine threat once they are understood. For example, if there were a real and probable threat that you understood that would cause the soon-arriving extinction of humanity or destroy the biological or climate systems upon which humanity depends for its survival, one would be obligated to disrupt any organization and its ideas and actions causing that threat.
Another example will be helpful to illustrate how different relative levels of scale and severity can make some types of disruption obligatory. For instance, if a war using conventional weapons will break out between two small countries causing many people to die, and you knew about it ahead of time, this would call for necessary disruption. But, if you knew ahead of time that a global thermonuclear war would occur soon, and it would kill all of humanity, you would then be obliged to disrupt this threat to the best of your abilities.
Hopefully, you now understand why the level, scale, and severity of damage determines the difference between what is necessary and what is obligatory. You should also see why the global warming extinction emergency or anything that speeds it up or prevents us from seeing it honestly and resolving it requires our obligatory disruption.
With the enormous threats we face today, the role of being a necessary or obligatory disruptor is not just needed; it is required! Moreover, any distress that one might cause by challenging and disrupting any offending organization is infinitely less when compared to the suffering, death, loss, and damage that such unchallenged illusions, incorrect information, or actions will eventually cause to the world's efforts to reduce global warming and its other 11 biggest global crises.
What does a necessary or obligatory disruptor do?
They disrupt dangerous actions and statements, and they educate about large-scale harmful actions and statements. The following is how they do this.
Being a disruptor means that:
A. to the best of our abilities, in peaceful, legal, and nonviolent ways, we publicly challenge and disrupt any organization that presents illusions, false, significantly underestimated, diminishing, or misleading global warming analysis, facts or solutions, or, otherwise misrepresent, dummy down or "markets" threat-resolving information in such a way that it becomes counter-productive to resolving the true urgency of resolving the global warming extinction emergency or our other critical global threats.
B. we hold that no well-intended or global warming ill-informed organization has ANY inherent right to forward illusions, incorrect, underestimated, or misleading information unchallenged when their actions and those ideas lessen either the urgency or the effective means of resolving our global warming extinction emergency or our other critical global threats.
C. we must publically call out and shame any media that does lazy research and promotes dangerous illusions, false, underestimated, or misleading information.
D. we never shame individuals, only the organizations or institutions in which they work! This peaceful public shaming of corporations or organizations is a long-accepted and legitimate social protest action.
E. we are always guided to use means of necessary or obligatory disruption that would make Mahatma Gandi and Martin Luther King proud.
F. we mainly focus on the power of education and facts to disrupt.
We will also try to be respectful disruptors whenever possible
We will take this posture whenever possible, especially where we can see the companies and nonprofit organizations are composed of good people and have previously done many good things for global warming education.
In some cases, these same entities also may have made essential or significant contributions to the global warming educational movement over many years. While we will recognize and honor the many good actions they have done in the past, but we cannot stand with any current action or information that directly or indirectly threatens our ability to resolve the global warming extinction emergency and to save humanity's future from the other 11 global crises.
We also understand that in most cases, organizations are not presenting illusions, false, underestimated, diminishing, or misleading global warming analysis or facts counter-productive to resolving the global warming extinction emergency awarely or intentionally. They are doing the best they can with what they have studied or understood on this complex issue.
We believe that when organizations have unintentionally presented illusions, incorrect 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 challenge the existing:
a. "authority endorsed" or established paradigms or incomplete or inadequate computer models of global warming futures,
b. used popular "it has to be good for the economy" endorsed analysis and interpretations for missing critical inputs and possible solutions,
c. allowed hidden political manipulation or manipulation by other hidden for-profit vested interests (the fossil fuel industry) that have skewed or warped the integrity of other honest climate researchers' results.
2. Listened to marketing people within their organizations, causing them to self-censor and treat their members like children who cannot be told or deal with the many worsening and painful facts of the global warming extinction emergency.
3. Failed to have any single advisory individual or senior executive group within their organization put in the reading on tens of thousands of pages of challenging climate research. This indivuidual woudl also need the requisite Mensa-level IQ, math, and physics grasp, as well as a deep understanding of complex adaptive systems, tipping point theory, systems theory, and an adequate dialectical meta-systemic analysis understanding of one of the most complicated issues of our time.
We will provide valuable and accurate information on the global warming state of emergency. This way, we can more quickly reduce global fossil fuel use to the 2025 targets by executing all of the prioritized and deadline-driven actions necessary to prevent a global warming-driven total extinction event because:
a. The faster and more we reduce global fossil fuel use, the more people will survive to carry on humanity.
b. The quicker and more we reduce global fossil fuel use, the fewer 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. However, we also think that any organization can and should be publicly challenged if the result(s) of their unchallenged views will cause grave harm to others and the future of humanity and the biosphere!
Therefore, if an organization, particularly in public positions of influence, is forwarding illusions, false, underestimated, diminishing, or misleading ideas that will make it more difficult to slow or resolve the global warming extinction emergency, we will:
internally honor and recognize all of their legitimate accomplishments and, we will publicly attack the errors in the information they are presenting in the public forums that will provide the most corrective benefits and most disrupt the status quo of their erroneous educational actions.
We do not seek to polarize or lessen the efforts of any organization seeking to educate about global warming. But, at the twelfth hour of this greatest of all human extinction emergencies, we can not and will not allow dangerous illusion incorrect, underestimated, diminishing, or misleading ideas about the global warming extinction emergency to go unchallenged.
We must protect our futures and the futures of generations X, Y, and Z. If that means peaceful, corrective, necessary, and obligatory disruption, so be it!

How you can disrupt the entities and systems protecting or forwarding global warming and the 11 other global crises
1. Make your voice known to your politicians, governments, and any corporations or systems protecting or forwarding global warming and the 11 other global crises.
2. Work to remove all of your or outside economic support from any group, corporation, or system protecting or forwarding global warming and the 11 other global crises.
3. Only buy what you need and be an example of sustainable low energy use living.
4 Create other ways using the principles above.
Our organization will be disruptive of the incorrect facts, false beliefs, and ineffective global warming reduction plans of any organization presenting them. We do this only to call attention to more effective actions or more useful global warming facts and analyses.
Please join us and act as necessary or obligatory disruptors as your location, skills, and resources allow. For example, one small first act of disruption could be to sign our global warming extinction emergency petition.
The Job One for Humanity Research Team
PS So that you know, the main goals of our not-for-profit organization are found here.
1. If you want to know why we have only until 2025 to make the life-critical global fossil fuel reductions:
b. Learn more about the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets here.
c. Discover the detailed primary and secondary global warming-related consequences that will lead to the extinction of humanity and global collapse here.
2. The Job One for Humanity organization has adapted to the new reality that disruption is now necessary because:
b. We most likely can not avoid the extinction of much of humanity by mid-century (because of our previous decades of delays in acting to resolve this emergency.)
c. We still have a reasonable chance of preventing the near-total or total extinction of humanity due to accelerating global warming and the other 11 global crises we face if we act now!
d. Please see this article for some of the ways we are respectfully disrupting.
