Here are our most recommended action steps in order of priority to help resolve the climate change emergency and learn the most current and important global warming facts:
Step 1: Sign our climate change and global warming emergency petition.
Click here to sign our emergency petition to get our politicians to ACT before it is too late. It will go to our political leaders to urge them to enact the laws needed to reach (or at least get very close to) the life-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
We need to slow down global warming and at the minimum, get very, very close to reaching these 2025 targets to prevent the high probability of a global warming-caused mass extinction event from occurring by mid-century. Join the thousands upon thousands of other emergency petition signers by clicking the sign the petition image below.

Step 4: Click here to start the Job One for Humanity Plan and take your first actions to survive and thrive through this the global warming emergency
This overview and quick start guide will help you pick the part of the plan and the action step(s) that are best suited to your individual circumstances.
Step 5: Read about the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets so that you have a good understanding of what we still can and must do to save the future
The following are the most important reasons why we must press on and meet or get as close to the 2025 targets as is possible in spite of all the challenges.
If we do not get close to the 2025 targets, as much as 50% of humanity will suffer and die due to starvation over a relatively short period (1-3 decades.) As horrible as much as 50% of humanity as well as a lot of animals and biological life suffering and dying is, this outcome is still far better than having 70-90% (or even all of humanity,) suffer and die over over the next 5-8 decades if we fail to reach or come close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
There are four things we can always be sure of during this global warming emergency. In spite of all of the challenges and adverse global warming outcomes that are possible and discussed above (and on this website,) the single constant truth for the best possible outcome for humanity is that; the faster and more we reduce global fossil fuel use toward meeting or getting as close as possible to the 2025 targets:
a. the more people that will survive longer to carry on humanity, life, and our beautiful civilization into the future, (See Parts 3 and 4 of the Job One Plan for how to do this.)
b. the surviving future generations will suffer far less from an ever-increasing sequence of escalating global warming consequences and catastrophes,
c. we at least have a fighting chance to avoid total extinction, and
d. we will "buy" ourselves more time to prepare and adapt to the consequences we can no longer avoid, (see the global warming Plan B and survival kit here.)
More people surviving longer and more people having time to get themselves, their families, and their businesses prepared for what is coming is an undeniable good particularly when you weigh it against the unavoidable consequences of doing nothing or failure to make the needed sacrifices to get global warming under control.
Never forget, we still have some time left until 2025 to:
1. make the required radical fossil fuel reductions,
2. complete the necessary emergency preparations, and to
Step 6: Inform everyone you love with an open mind to science about the climate change and global warming emergency, our website, and what we must do.
Now that you understand more about the facts that you have discovered either on the Job One website (or in the new Climageddon book,) please warn everyone you love. We only have 6 years left to prevent a mass extinction event from occurring within the next few decades!
Your concern and warning may help get them started on the Job One Plan (below) or their own preparation and adaptation planning which will also help them to avoid much of the escalating global warming-related financial losses, suffering, and/or death that is coming.
Step 7: Check out the climate change and global warming doomsday clock and see how much time we have left by clicking the clock image below.
Step 8: Become a supporting member of the Job One for Humanity non-profit organization and community and help us resolve the global warming threat.
Step 9: Learn more by reading our website and then getting the book Climageddon, The Global Warming Emergency, and How to Survive It.
Climageddon fully documents the science proving and explaining our rapidly escalating global warming extinction emergency, the 20 worst global warming consequences, and the 11 most dangerous global warming tipping points. We occasionally have promotions where you can get the Climageddon ebook free by becoming an annual member. (You can read it at your own pace while you work on the other action steps.)

8a. For those of you who do not like reading a lot of science and want to be entertained while you learn about what is coming.
Get On Vestige Way by David Spielberg just arrived at Amazon. It is an emotion-packed novel about how global warming affects the future and fate of the world’s Millennials, generation Z, corporations and the political alliances we take for granted.
The core message of our website is simple and straightforward:
Fact 1: Our governments were not prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic. They are even more unprepared for the accelerating global warming emergency. They have ignored 35 years of warnings by our best climate scientists, just like they ignored the warnings of the world's best pandemic scientists.
Fact 2: Our governments have grossly under-estimated:
a. how bad global warming is going to get,
b. how soon global warming will worsen, and
c. the actual global warming fossil fuel reduction targets critically needed to save us from mass extinction.
The world's governments have grossly under-estimated these three critical elements of global warming information because the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the United Nations deliberately falsified the required global fossil fuel reduction calculations. These falsified calculations then caused all subsequent global warming consequences and timetable predictions also to be false.
These calculations are vitally important because the IPCC is the world's leading research authority on global warming and all governments rely upon them for their global warming consequence and timetable predictions.Because of this IPCC falsification of the calculations and targets, the world now believes they will be safe for many decades. In truth, the world is facing an accelerating extinction emergency that must be managed before the end of 2025 or, we go over the last chance global warming climate cliff.
Because of many decades of systemic deception, consequence under-estimation, and denial, many of global warming's worst consequences are now unavoidable!

Click here to see the numerous other global fossil fuel reduction target manipulations and politicization problems coming from the IPCC.
Click here to learn about the climate cliff, the first extinction-accelerating global warming tipping point.
Fact 3: We have now reached a global warming acceleration level where only a worldwide government-driven mass mobilization similar in scope to the mass mobilization that occurred before World War II can save us from going over the climate cliff to mass extinction. It is far too late for individual actions to achieve the 2025 global fossil fuel reductions needed to save us from accelerating global warming-driven catastrophe and mass extinction.
(Part 3 of our Job One for Humanity Plan will show you how our governments can complete the required mass mobilization and the required levels of fossil fuel reductions to save us.)
Fact 4: If we keep going the way we are now, our governments are less than five years away (2025) from going over the climate cliff and missing our last practical chance to reduce fossil fuel use sufficiently to meet the required safe target levels. Only by achieving these 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets do we maintain realistic control of our global warming futures and prevent the mass extinction of much of humanity by mid-century.
The 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets will require most of us to reduce our total global fossil fuel use by a shocking 75%. This 75% global fossil fuel reduction means explicitly that all developed countries (including China and India) must reduce all auto, train, shipping, airline, industrial, agricultural, and home uses of all fossil fuels by 75% to meet these 2025 targets!
Most undeveloped countries have considerably smaller 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets. These smaller targets are due to undeveloped countries having far lower historical fossil fuel use levels and because of what is fair in climate justice.
(Click here to see the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction target details. If we fail to come close to these targets, it will take centuries to the planet to recover. )
Fact 5: Missing this 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets means we go over the climate cliff, and we accelerate the immutable laws of climate physics. Going over this climate cliff will trigger crossing more global warming tipping points at faster and faster rates. Failing to meet the 2025 targets also means we will not prevent the most catastrophic global warming consequences from occurring.
For example, suppose we fail to meet the 2025 targets, that will produce accelerating temperatures, drought, rain bombs, flooding, and global warming's other forms of extreme weather. In that case, we will not be able to prevent the widespread collapse of global agriculture. If we allow global agriculture's widespread failure, the human population will quickly starve and collapse to a fraction of today's population.
But this is not even the worse consequence of missing the 2025 targets. If we miss these 2025 targets, an even worse consequence called runaway global warming will eventually render our beautiful Planet Earth uninhabitable! (Runaway global warming means that global warming will run away from us and continue to get warmer and warmer due to crossed tipping points and because of other climate factors.)
(Click here to read about how and when these four critical extinction-accelerating tipping points will unfold over the next few decades. It will also explain the global warming climate cliff and what happens once we cross it.)
Fact 6: Despite horrible odds for successfully reaching the critical 2025 targets, it is still technically possible to reach them as long as we immediately execute a worldwide government-driven mass mobilization. If our governments gets us close to the 2025 targets, we can at least slow down (but not stop) the coming mass extinction event that will kill off much of humanity by mid-century.
This mass extinction event will also trigger a collapse of most nations' economies and destroy much of their functioning civilization. Because of these two unthinkable global consequences, we must do everything possible to meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and slow down the accelerating global warming mass extinction process.
Fact 7: Only by getting close to the global 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets and successfully managing most of these other 11 non-global warming global problems will we give ourselves the needed time and resources to prevent a far worse total extinction of humanity occurring from 2070 to 2100.
(If you think that either the mass extinction or total extinction global warming threats are overstated, please read this page first, then this page, and then please see this recent scientific summary by respected climate scientists.)
Fact 8: We are horribly behind where we need to be in reducing global fossil fuel use to get even close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. We also are failing miserably to manage most of these other 11 critical global challenges that are amplifying, accelerating, and interacting with many global warming consequences to our severe detriment.
Consequently, now is the time for wise individuals and businesses to create their own Plan B emergency backup plans. It is no longer reasonable to rely solely upon your limited-resourced governments to save you, your family, or your business from this rapidly accelerating emergency. (Plan B is simply an emergency preparation, adaptation, and survival plan that might even include migration or relocation to safer areas from global warming and other global threats.)
With your Plan B in place, you can keep working to help slow down global warming to achieve the best remaining global warming outcomes after you have prepared your family and business for the soon-arriving worst consequences.
By having a personalized Plan B ready, you and your loved ones will be able to survive and thrive far longer and more comfortably. And, if we get through this extinction emergency, you will have also preserved your future opportunity to create a better life from the lessons learned.
(Click here to see the Job One for Humanity Plan B. Plan B includes saving and salvaging as much of our global civilization as we can for as long as we can so, it will be there for us in the post-collapse future where we will need it.)
(Click here to see the many best possible remaining outcomes if our governments mass mobilize and act in time.)
Fact 9: Depending on your location, many of you should still have enough time to prepare for and adapt to the myriad of now unavoidable global warming consequences. Additionally, it is wholly appropriate to feel fear at this dangerous juncture because of the known consequences of accelerating global warming and the worsening of these other 11 global problems.
While fear or panic generally paralyzes, there are positive evolutionary reasons for why the emotion of fear exists. Positive fear exists when there are REAL threats to your survival. Positive fear mobilizes the observant and wise to act before it is too late!
To support the positive use of fear on our real and soon-arriving global warming consequences, here are the most critical global warming deadlines to remember:
a. The 5-year deadline: (From now until the end of 2025.) At this time, it is appropriate to admit it is all but impossible for us to reach the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets! But, we still do have enough time left to slow down (but not avoid,) a mid-century mass extinction event for much of humanity. Although we can no longer avoid mass extinction, we still can maintain some level of control of our global warming future, and most importantly, we can still prevent total extinction!
To avoid total extinction, we must make radical global fossil fuel reductions immediately and still come very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. (This extinction danger also means we have to continue to educate the world about the climate cliff and tipping point deadlines of this emergency after preparing our personal survive and thrive provisions and creating eco-community cooperatives and sanctuaries. It is also essential to know that within this first 5-year period, if you are in a high-risk location, land prices in the safer global warming locations will start rising at a faster rate.)
b. The 5-10-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) From 2020 to 2027, global warming consequences will steadily worsen in a rising but linear progression. More people will migrate. Millions more will die because of climate-related catastrophes.
If you have prepared, adapted, and are in a global warming safer location before 2027 and have a good Plan B in place, depending upon your location, relative stability and security for family and business are probable until 2030 to 2040. (See this Plan B page, which discusses how to prepare the safest and least safe places to ride out the global warming extinction emergency.)
c. The 10-15 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) After 2030-2035 many other climate, human, ecological, political, and economic tipping points will be crossed due to global warming, and most of these 11 other critical global challenges will worsen. The stability and security of even the safest and best prepared global warming safer locations will lessen and become increasingly challenging. Those individuals in supportive cooperatives or eco-communities should be significantly safer and better adapted than those who are not.
d. The 15-25 year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) Beginning around 2030, the frequency, severity, and size of 20 worst global warming consequences will move from a rising linear progression into an exponential progression. Stability and security for even the safest and best prepared, safer global warming locations, cooperatives, and eco-communities will become far more difficult and dangerous.
e. The 25-30-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) By mid-century, mass extinction for much of humanity is unavoidable. From 2030-2050 will be the riskiest period to survive for much to most of society. Generally, things will be better in safer global warming locations, cooperatives, and eco-communities. Even there, survival is far from guaranteed without the highest preparation, adaptation, and cooperation levels.
f. The 50-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.) We will face the worst consequences of runaway global warming, and we will be heading toward the beginning of the runaway greenhouse gas effect, which ripped the atmosphere off Venus. Because of this escalating runaway global warming reality, humanity will face a total extinction event (what we describe as the Climageddon Scenario) beginning as soon as 2070-2100.
Many people believe that geoengineering, carbon capture, or some other new miracle technology will ride in like a knight on a white horse at the last minute to save humanity from the natural consequences of its previous climate decisions, actions, inactions, and mistakes.
(Click here to read about why this fairy tale carbon capture technology is not going to happen or will be "too little too late" to save us.)
(Click here to read how challenging it will be to reach the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.)
1. The IPCC has deceived us and our governments about the real global fossil fuel reduction targets and how bad and fast global warming catastrophe and mass extinction is coming.
2. Our governments are failing magnificently in achieving the real 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. This will push the world over to the climate cliff and bring about the mass extinction of much of humanity and widespread social collapse by mid-century.
3. If we do not get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, we will also be facing total extinction in the second half of the 21st century. We will face total extinction because we will not be able to stop ourselves from crossing the four most critical extinction-accelerating global warming tipping points.
4. The battle to prevent the extinction of much of humanity is over. The fight to prevent total extinction has begun. It is now the last chance for our governments to finally mass mobilize and act together with the correct actions to prevent global social collapse and humanity's total extinction.
5. While we try to get our governments to mass mobilize and come close to the 2025 targets, it IS also time for individuals and businesses to execute a Plan B for this emergency. Plan B consists of preparing for and adapting to the soon-arriving climate mega-catastrophes, widespread social collapse and the inevitable mass extinction of much of humanity by mid-century. (To see precisely how widespread social collapse will occur due to the accelerating global warming emergency please read this page.)
6. The comprehensive Job One Plan offers honest reality-based hope for the future. It covers:
a. the real 2025 fossil fuel targets,
b. the correct actions our governments need to do slow down mass extinction and prevent total extinction, and
c. what we as individuals, businesses, and governments must do to have the right emergency backup Plan B in place to ride out what is coming.
Unfortunately, to prevent the required painful global fossil fuel reductions to save us from total extinction as well as public panic, our governments and politicians will continue to deny the above facts. At this time too many governments and environmental groups have been compromised by the money and influence of fossil fuel producing nations, fossil fuel-related industries, and their lobbyists.
To keep the public calm and ignorant of the imminent extinction dangers described above, it is very likely our governments will continue to issue false or misleading global warming reduction progress reports. Our governments will also likely seek to distract us with false hope solutions like the existing and illusionary carbon capture and geoengineering schemes.
For humanity to survive and thrive, we must go where the science and the facts lead us and face the cold and bitter reality of our current extinction emergency.
We must continue to speak truth to power no matter how uncomfortable those facts might be.

It is not just Job One for Humanity saying these scary things anymore
Hundreds of climate scientists now feel we cannot keep global warming below a 2°C increase. This means that all we can do right now is prepare for and adapt to what's coming.
