There are four things we can always be sure of during the 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 and we work the four parts of the Job One Plan:
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 5: Inform everyone you love with an open mind to science about the climate change and global warming emergency, what we must do and our website.
Now that you understand more about the facts that you have discovered on the Job One website, please warn everyone you love. We only have 4 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 6: Become a supporting member of the Job One for Humanity non-profit organization and community and help us resolve the global warming threat.
Step 7: Get 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.)
Click here or on the image above for more information about this new book that is getting lots of 4 and 5-star reviews on Amazon.
7a. 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:
As of 5.24.2021, here are the nine most essential facts to know about global warming and climate change based on today's most current science. These nine facts are what most other global warming education and environmental groups are afraid to tell you.
Once you understand them, you will be better prepared for what is happening now and coming.
We are not asking you to accept these disruptive facts blindly. Instead, we have provided links to their scientific documentation and analysis (found on this page.)
We also will not leave you stuck in this painful news without a solution and balancing positive perspectives. At the end of this article, you will find a link to a comprehensive four-part plan for what you can do to help manage global warming and many of the other 11 major global crises we currently face. To further counterbalance these disruptive facts, you will also find a link to a long list of the many surprising benefits that you will experience as we work toward resolving this challenge and evolutionary opportunity.
Because psychologists say it is better to get the bad news out of the way before the good news, here are essential but difficult facts you must know about today's climate change and global warming emergency:
Fact 1: Our governments have ignored more than 35 years of global warming warnings by our best climate scientists. We have lost those valuable decades when we could have gradually and easily reduced our global fossil fuel use to avoid catastrophe. Now, to save ourselves from extinction, our immediate global fossil fuel reductions will have to be radical, painful, and almost impossible.
Our governments ignoring repeated and valid scientific warnings is far from rare. They repeatedly ignored the warnings by the world's best pandemic scientists. Despite many pandemic warnings, our governments were not still prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic, acted too slow at its onset and, it got out of control --- exactly as predicted!
Our well-warned governments are even less prepared for the global warming fueled accelerating extinction emergency and its many primary and secondary consequences.
Fact 2: Our governments have grossly under-estimated:
a. how bad global warming is going to get,
b. how soon global warming will exponentially worsen, and
c. the correct global fossil fuel reduction targets critically needed to save us from mass extinction.
The world's governments have grossly under-estimated the above facts because in part, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the United Nations has cleverly "falsified" global fossil fuel reduction calculations. These "falsified" fossil fuel reduction target calculations also contribute to the global warming consequence timetable predictions being inaccurate.
These global fossil fuel reduction target calculations are vitally important because the IPCC is the world's leading research authority on global warming. All governments rely upon their reduction calculations for their nation's part of the global fossil fuel use reduction targets. Unfortunately, because of this IPCC "falsification" of the needed global fossil fuel reduction calculations, the world now falsely believes it is somewhat close to its needed reduction targets and will be safe for decades to come.
Click here to discover how the IPCC "falsified" essential global fossil fuel reduction calculations and targets. (It is a fascinating, easy read.)
In truth, the world is facing an accelerating extinction emergency. We must now make drastic global fossil fuel reductions before the end of 2025 or, we can't stop ourselves from going over our last chance, global warming tipping point. Unfortunately, because of many decades of IPCC consequence under-estimation and "falsified" reduction calculations, many global warming consequences are now unavoidable!
If you still do not believe that we are being told the wrong survival-critical global fossil fuel reduction targets, read the two articles below and decide for yourself if the incorrect IPCC calculations are intentional or just honest mistakes?
Click here to see the other global fossil fuel reduction target manipulations and politicization problems from within the IPCC.
Fact 3: We have now reached a global warming acceleration level where only a worldwide, government-driven, and enforced mass mobilization similar in scope to the mass mobilization that occurred before World War II can save us from total extinction. It is far, far too late for individual fossil fuel reduction actions to meet the painful 2025 global fossil fuel reductions needed to save us from the massive die-off of much of humanity by mid-century.
(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 global fossil fuel reduction to save us.)
Fact 4: If we keep going the way we are now, our governments are less than five years away (2025) from missing our last realistic chance to reduce global fossil fuel use sufficiently to prevent the die-off of much of humanity by 2050. It is only by getting close to these 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets that we maintain realistic control of our global warming futures and can prevent the total extinction of humanity around or before 2100. (Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do at this point to avoid much of humanity from dying by mid-century. We have waited and ignored the warnings for too long. We already missed making the needed global fossil fuel reductions!)
What are these critical, required 2025 global fossil fuel use reductions? The 2025 targets will require most developed nations to reduce their total global fossil fuel use by a shocking 75% by 2025. This 75% global fossil fuel reduction means 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% by 2025 to meet these 2025 targets!
The national fossil fuel reductions also mean the citizens of those nations must reduce all auto, train, shipping, airline, industrial, agricultural, and home uses of all fossil fuels by 75% by 2025. Now you have a realistic idea of how steep this reduction task is and how painful it will be to save the future.
(Click here to see full details and year-by-year 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. Also, please importantly note, if we fail to come close to these 2025 targets, it will also take centuries to millennia for the planet to recover. )
Fact 5: Significantly missing this 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets means we go over the first extinction-evoking tipping point, and we accelerate the immutable laws of climate physics toward climate catastrophe. Going over this first critical tipping point will also quickly trigger crossing more global warming extinction-accelerating tipping points faster and faster.
Here is how key consequences will unfold if we fail to meet the 2025 targets. It will produce accelerating temperatures, drought, rain bombs, flooding, and global warming's many consequences and forms of extreme weather.
We will then 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 today's population will soon collapse. (See this critical page for the sequence of the unfolding primary and secondary global warming consequences.)
The above is not even the worse consequence of missing the 2025 targets. If we do not get very close to these 2025 targets, a result called runaway global warming will eventually render our beautiful Planet Earth completely uninhabitable! (Runaway global warming means that global warming will run away from us and continue to get warmer and warmer due to additional crossed tipping points and because of other climate factors.)
Once again, the good news is that runaway global warming can only happen if we significantly miss the 2025 global reduction targets. If that happens, we cannot stop ourselves from going over the first extinction-evoking global warming tipping point. We then also soon cross the two other extinction-accelerating global warming tipping points. (Click here to read about how and when these four critical extinction-accelerating tipping points will unfold over the next few decades.)
Fact 6: Despite horrible odds for successfully getting close to the critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, it is still technically possible to do so. But we immediately need to execute a government-driven and government-enforced global mass mobilization. If our governments get us close to the 2025 targets, we can at least slow down (but not stop) the die-off of much of humanity by mid-century. (This massive die-off event will also trigger a collapse of many weaker nations' economies and destroy much of their functioning governments.)
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 crises will we give ourselves the needed time and resources to prevent the total extinction of humanity from occurring from 2070 to about 2100.
(If you think that either the extinction of much of humanity by mid-century or humanity's total extinction beginning around 2070 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 have also failed miserably to manage most of these other 11 critical global challenges to our severe detriment. The amplifying, accelerating, and interacting of our 12 major global crises with each other will soon begin causing a widespread collapse of critical economic, ecological and social systems first in weaker nations, but eventually even in the strongest.
Consequently, now is the time for wise individuals and businesses also to create their own Plan B emergency backup survival plans. It is no longer reasonable to rely solely upon our limited-resourced governments to save you, your family, or your business from the rapidly accelerating global warming emergency interacting with our 11 other global crises.
With your Plan B in place, you can keep working to help slow down global warming and achieve the best remaining outcomes (after you have prepared your family and business for its worst and soon-arriving consequences.) And, if we eventually do get through this extinction emergency, we will have also preserved your future opportunity to create a better life from the lessons learned.
(Plan B is simply an emergency preparation, adaptation, and survival plan. It might even include migration or relocation to safer areas away from the worst of accelerating global warming and the worsening 11 other major global threats. Click here to see the Job One for Humanity Plan B. Plan B also 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.)
(Click here to see the many best possible remaining positive outcomes if our governments mass mobilize and act in time.)
Fact 9: Depending on your current location, you should still have enough time to prepare for and adapt to the myriad of now unavoidable global warming and related primary and secondary consequences. To help you determine how much time you have to prepare, adapt, or relocate, we have provided the crisis timetable below.
Keep in mind that this timetable significantly depends on your current location's safety and global warming risk level. If you are in a higher-risk area, the timeframes are shorter. (Please also see highly relevant additional emergency preparation, adaptation, and other location/relocation safety and risk level information useful for wisely using the timetable below on this page.)
Here are the critical survival and location-relevant deadlines and timeframes to know and use for your personal and business survival:
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 fully meet the total 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 by getting close to them. Thus, although we have passed the point of avoiding the die-off of much of humanity, we still can maintain some level of control of our global warming future. And most importantly, we can still prevent total extinction by getting very close to the 2025 targets!
This total extinction danger also means we have to educate the world about the extinction-evoking global warming tipping point deadlines after preparing our survival provisions and after creating safe and sustainable community cooperatives or sanctuaries.
b. The 5-10-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and did not get close to them.) From 2020 to 2027, global warming consequences will steadily worsen in a rising but steeper linear progression. More people will wisely migrate to safer areas. Millions will die because of climate-related food shortages and other global warming-related catastrophes.
If you have prepared, adapted, and if applicable, are in a global warming safer location before 2027, and you have a good Plan B in place, depending upon your location, relative stability and security for family and business are probable until about 2030 to 2040. (See this Plan B page, which discusses how to prepare in the safest locations and what are the 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, and we did not get close to the 2025 targets.) After 2030-2035 many other climate, human, ecological, political, and economic tipping points will be crossed due to accelerating global warming consequences and global warming amplifying the consequences of most of these 11 other critical global challenges.
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 sustainable 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, and we did not get close to meeting these targets.) Beginning around 2030, the frequency, severity, and size of the 20 worst global warming consequences will move from a steeply rising linear progression into an exponential progression. As a result, stability and security for even the best prepared, safer global warming locations, cooperatives, and sustainable communities will become far more complex and dangerous.
e. The 25-30-year deadline: (This assumes we will miss the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and at least, we got close to them or compensated for these targets somewhere over this period.) By mid-century, extinction for much of humanity will still be 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, special cooperatives, and sustainable communities. But 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, and unfortunately, we did not even get close to them.) In this case, we will face the worst consequences of runaway global warming. 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 and not getting close to the 2025 reduction targets, humanity will, unfortunately, finally face a total extinction event beginning as soon as 2070-2100. We call this the Climageddon Scenario.
At this dangerous juncture in the evolution of humanity, it is also wholly appropriate to feel fear because of the many known consequences of accelerating global warming and the worsening of these 11 other global crises. While generalized fear or panic often paralyzes, there are positive evolutionary reasons for fear's emotion. The positive use of fear exists for those rare times when there are REAL threats to your survival. Positive fear mobilizes the observant and wise to act before it is too late!
So, here is some good timeline news. If we at least get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, we can still prevent total human extinction. If we do not, we begin crossing too many additional extinction-triggering tipping points. This happens far too fast to prevent the worst consequences of runaway global warming multiplying the worsening effects of the other 11 major global crises.

One Last Mini-Fact: The Common False Belief that New Carbon Removal Technology Will Save Us Just in Time
Many people falsely 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 bad 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.)
The Nine Facts Summary:
1. The IPCC has deceived our governments about the true global fossil fuel reduction targets and how bad and fast global warming catastrophe and mass extinction are coming.
2. Our governments are failing horribly in achieving the real 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. This will push the world over critical global warming extinction triggering tipping points and bring about the unavoidable extinction of much of humanity and widespread social collapse by mid-century.
3. The battle to prevent the extinction of much of humanity by mid-century is over. The fight to prevent total extinction has begun. It is now the last chance for our governments to mass mobilize and act together with the correct actions to prevent global social collapse and humanity's total extinction.
4. 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 their emergency Plan B. 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 the secondary consequences on this page.)
5. The comprehensive Job One Plan offers honest, reality-based hope for surviving and thriving throughout the uncertain 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 proper emergency backup Plan B in place to ride out what is coming.
6. The Job One for Humanity Plan is based on the simple logic that, if we do not come close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, when faced with unavoidable mass extinction and a highly probable total extinction event, it is best to use your remaining time and energy wisely. This wise use of remaining time and energy would include:
a.) making your remaining time as fulfilling, meaningful, and comfortable as possible for as long as you can (Parts 1 and 2 of the Job One Plan.)
b.) doing everything within your power to save and salvage whatever you can of humanity and civilization for as long as you can instead of doing nothing and losing everything! (Parts 3 and 4 pf the Job One Plan.)
Unfortunately, to delay the required painful global fossil fuel reductions to save us from total extinction, our governments and politicians will continue to deny the above facts under the guise of preventing public panic. 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 likely seek to distract us with false hope solutions like the many existing and illusionary carbon capture and new geoengineering schemes.
For humanity to survive and thrive, we must go where science and the facts lead us and face the cold and bitter reality of the real threat of our current extinction emergency. We must continue to speak truth to power no matter how uncomfortable those facts might be.

The essential positive perspectives on the above disruptive global warming and climate change news
Despite the many types of unavoidable challenging global warming consequences and past fossil fuel reduction mistakes that we now face, we can still learn from their feedback, and we can adapt and evolve to make life as good and as happy as is possible. No matter how severe the coming global warming consequences might become, if we wisely play the remaining cards that we have been dealt, we can still achieve the best remaining possible outcomes.
We can make a significant difference in reducing global fossil fuel use to stabilize and save some parts of humanity's future. We can execute a comprehensive fossil fuel reduction and survival plan like the Job One for Humanity Plan.
We can still maintain the perseverance needed to succeed in this monumental task by regularly reviewing the many benefits which will occur as we work successfully on this project together. (Click here to check those benefits. This is the most read page on our website.)
We can persevere through this temporary time of emergency. To do so, we need to remember that our greatest challenges are also the seeds of our greatest evolutionary opportunities. We can also never forget that we are engaged in nothing less than the most critical and meaningful evolutionary challenge, opportunity, and adventure in human history!
This is our last opportunity to slow down the accelerating mass human extinction threat by getting close to these 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
Only by reaching these targets will we be able to remove the even worse threat of total extinction.
So, get started on the Job One for Humanity Survive and Thrive plan today. Help save and salvage as much of humanity and our beautiful civilization as is possible.
If you are either curious or need some extra motivation to get into action, we then strongly recommend also reading this popular page. It describes the above major consequences unfolding in a detailed step-by-step process as well as the complete scope and breadth of the extinction emergency that we are all now facing on many consequence fronts.
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. (If needed, click here to review the many reasons why it is highly unlikely we will reach our 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and why we must begin preparing ourselves.)
