This is your Plan B and survival kit for climate change, the accelerating global warming extinction emergency, and the worsening of the 11 other most critical global problems we currently face. The following information and its links will also help you to understand why having a Plan B survival kit is essential to prepare for, adapt to, and survive the very difficult future that is coming soon.
Together Parts 1 and 2 of the plan below will create your personal climate change survival Plan B! Part 1 will be essential to your needed emergency preparations and possible migration. Part 2 will be essential for your optimal personal adaptation to rapidly changing conditions and it will also help reduce our personal fossil fuel use.
Parts 1 and 2 below will help and your loved ones will survive and thrive longer and more comfortably. This high-level survive, prepare, and adapt Plan B focus is critical because we are already facing mass extinction of much of humanity by mid-century no matter what else we do.
If you have ANY doubts about why you, your family, or your business should have this Plan B ready, please read this page now. It is about our failure to manage accelerating global warming as well as numerous other serious global problems. This crisis-explaining foundational page will illuminate in a detailed step-by-step process the interconnected catastrophes, systems collapses, and increasing chaos that is already occurring (or will soon begin) at levels never seen before in human history.
Once you have finished this critical foundational page on what we are facing, we believe you too will be eager to get your own Plan B done as soon as is possible!
A bit about where we are today with only the global warming emergency
As of July of 2020, we are still not making adequate or even significant progress on our last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. These are the life-critical fossil fuel reduction targets that we must meet (or get very close to) to have any reasonable hope of preventing a mass human, animal, and biological extinction event from unfolding by mid-century or, to prevent a total extinction event beginning in about 50-70 years.
As you can see from the graph below, we are going the wrong carbon reduction direction. We are adding more heat-causing carbon pollution to our atmosphere every month and year. As of late 2019, we crossed the carbon the very dangerous 415 ppm mark.
(Click here now to see a graph of today's atmospheric carbon level. This continuously updated graph at another website will best show our progress or lack of progress in reversing our global warming emergency. If this atmospheric carbon graph is going up, things are getting worse. If it is going back down, especially moving back close to the safe carbon 350 ppm level, it is good.)
Any rational individual who also understands this list of powerful barriers to our reaching the life-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, will be able to see for themselves that the odds of us meeting the 2025 targets are very, low if not all but impossible. (See the reasons here for our highly probable failure to meet the 2025 targets.)
Rational individuals who also are aware of the many horrific extinction-forwarding consequences of a 2025 global fossil fuel reduction failure, as well as the failing other critical global problems that we now face, know that things are getting worse and not better! Therefore, they are already creating backup plans and a Plan B to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Many of our staff, members, website visitors, as well as other climate researchers and world watchers are also focusing on implementing the Plan B strategies listed below to better prepare for, adapt to, and manage global warming's worst coming consequences as well as the worst coming consequences of the other critical global problems.
(Special Update of 11.1.2020: It is now a virtual mathematical and political impossibility to reach (or even come close) to our last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. The main consequence of this new reality is that all we can do now is slow down the mass extinction process, but not avoid it.
Although we can no longer prevent much of humanity from going extinct by mid-century, we still have some time left to prevent total extinction. Because of this harsh new reality, we have appropriately modified and updated the Job One for Humanity global warming action plan. Click here to see this updated plan.
Click here to see all of the reasons why a mass extinction event by mid-century is mathematically, economically, and politically unavoidable.)
What are the other most compelling reasons for you to create a Plan B at this time?
Individuals and business that are preparing a Plan B believe that:
1. they see an unavoidable and inescapable cascading convergence of horrible consequences, which will create a stream of horrific catastrophes, chaos, and system collapses. This is because of the many amplifying and disruptive interactions between these worsening critical global problems.
2. with so little time left before global warming consequences and other global problem consequences accelerate to unbearable levels, they now need to use remaining time and available resources for executing their personal or business Plan B.
3. they also do not have any effective personal way to personally execute many of the political influence steps of Part three of the Job One Plan, which would slow down the main global warming driver and accelerator of the coming catastrophes, chaos, and system collapses.
Many Job One for Humanity's staff, members, and website visitors do not see the global warming extinction emergency as an either/or issue. They see it as a both/and issue. This both/and issue strategy means that they are:
a. working on their own emergency Plan B backup actions below. (Parts 1 and 2 of the Job One Plan described below.) And,
b. if yey have any kind of direct or indirect political influence, they are also working on both Part three of the Job One Plan to slow down the global warming consequences that we can no longer avoid as best as they can, while also at the same time,
The rationale behind the above both/and strategy is that the more we reduce global fossil fuel use to come as close as possible to the 2025 targets (by executing as much of Part 3 of the Job One Plan as we can:
1. The more time the world will have to prepare for and adapt to the worst of the coming consequences.
2. The more we reduce global fossil fuel use, the more individuals who will survive longer and suffer less.
3. Although we will not be able to avoid the perils of mass extinction, we could still be able to avoid total extinction by coming very close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. (Please note that if we fail to reach or come close to the 2025 reduction targets, we are not just facing a mass extinction event we will be facing total extinction! This is because we will cross the carbon 600 ppm-level. This is the atmospheric carbon level where we will also enter the beginning phases of run-away global warming! If you are not sure about how much worse it can get if we enter a run-a-way global warming phase, please click this link.) And finally,
4. Because global warming is the biggest disruptor and threat multiplier of all of the other 11 critical global problems, when we improve global warming, we indirectly improve most of the other global challenges. At the same time, we also slow their pace of crossing their own tipping points.
It is just that simple!
At Job One, no matter what you choose to do, we honor individual choice and respect that each of us has different circumstances. Below please find our recommended Plan B survival kit! It will explain what is needed for individuals and businesses first, then the critical actions for governments.

Plan B Action Steps for the World's Governments to Save and Salvage Whatever We Can before it is too Late
While we do everything we can to come as close to the 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets as we can, simultaneously, the governments of the world must begin moving critical resources, technology, infrastructure, and at-risk populations into the global warming safer zones in a wise, equitable and well-managed way. Plan B is essential because there are absolutely no guarantees that we will be successful in reaching the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets and we need to slow down global warming no matter what! Unfortunately, only our governments will be able to slow it down enough to make a real difference in the future. The following governmental backup plan also needs to be enacted at the same emergency meeting of all world leaders described in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.
Hitting these 2025 reduction targets is our last best chance to prevent our reaching the carbon 600 ppm extinction tipping point. Unfortunately, it is highly probable that we will cross the carbon 600 ppm final extinction-level tipping point. (Please see this page if you have any doubts why it is highly unlikely that we will reach the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. This page will also help explain why our world leaders must enact this emergency backup plan while passing the other actions steps listed in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.)
Because of the unacceptably high probability of 2025 failure, humanity as a whole must have a government-level emergency backup plan. This backup plan will prepare our nations and humanity for the worst possible outcomes. This way, we can still save and salvage whatever we can, while we can.
At least, with this emergency backup plan successfully executed, some of humanity might be able to survive longer to re-populate the earth and preserve civilization. (If you still have any doubt that immediately beginning a government-driven and resourced emergency backup plan against failure is necessary, please read this page.)
Here are the key climate change and global warming government actions of a "save and salvage what we can while we still have time" strategy:
Global warming and these other poorly managed critical global challenges we currently face are most likely get a lot worse before they get better. While the actions below are more directly focused on the more immediate threat of the global warming emergency, indirectly they too will also be helpful make things more survivable as the other 12 critical global challenges continue to worsen.)
Action Step 1. Workout a migration plan for a fair and equitable migration lottery for all those individuals who have not already migrated.
For our long-term future and safety, essential resources, infrastructure, and crucial genetic and social diversity transfers will need to be executed at the same time as the other individual and business action steps (above) are being done. If things continue to go wrong as they are now, this government action step may turn out to be the most important action taken for the future of humanity and preserving civilization.
Wisely managing an orderly global warming migration by our governments with a fair and just lottery will be critical. This migration management is critical because of the poor soils and shorter growing seasons above the 45th parallel north or below the 45th parallel south. Those areas of deficient soils and inadequate sunlight will not be able to grow enough food to feed our current human population. Because of food production limitations, a limited, but fair lottery will be critical to the survival of humanity and civilization.
Even before this lottery begins, our best scientists must determine how much food can be grown in those global warming safe areas and what the maximum allowable population should be. These calculations are based on the total amount of food needed for that existing population while also maintaining adequate food reserves for unplanned and unexpected contingencies. Once they have those calculations, they can set initial and or adjust lottery migration allocations as conditions continually change.
Even before we set the final number of people that the remaining global warming safe zones will support, we must also mobilize the necessary agricultural resources to scale up food production. This scaling-up of the farming output will allow for the rapidly increasing migrating populations coming to those safer zones as well as to compensate for the generally more deficient soils and reduced sunlight found there.
One last thing must be said about the migration lottery. It cannot be hijacked or dominated by wealthy individuals, corporations, or nations. No special interest group must unjustly control or determine who is allowed to migrate based on privilege, position, wealth, politics, or any other national, cultural, or social categorization.
If it is not a fair and just lottery, based upon what is essential for humanity and civilization to survive as well as an equitable representation of all of the categories mentioned above, then those who are left behind will fight to the death and eventually bring about the end of everything. This new lottery failure conflict will occur because those who feel the lottery was unfair will invade the safe zones. They will use whatever nuclear, biological, or chemical technology has been left behind in unsafe zones.
Those with any decision power over who is allowed to migrate can not be allowed to use their political, military, or financial positions, advantages or privileges to place themselves, their families, friends, allies, or business interests in any better position than any other individual citizen in the unsafe zones in these lotteries.
Any random lottery winner selection methodology must draw only from a pool of the most qualified climagees with the essential skills for the new world we will be living in. It must also have layers of independent safeguards to prevent fraud, bias, and any form of selection favoritism.
This lottery must also for the following types of necessary diversity; genetic, national, racial, ethnic, religious, cultural, sexual orientation, gender identity, rural/urban/indigenous, and rich/poor. Communities most affected by global warming damage, which also have contributed the least to the global warming emergency should receive special consideration if justice is to be served
.Having enough genetic diversity will be extremely important because most of humanity by mid-century will eventually die. This will occur as we approach the final global warming extinction tipping point of carbon 600 ppm.
If the lottery selection for migration to the global warming safer zones is made justly and fairly, it will be viewed as credible and has the best chance to work.
There are many good reasons for executing this last chance to save humanity and civilization migration, lottery, and infrastructure transfer backup plan simultaneously with the other action steps described at the top of this page. Here are just a few reminders:
First, we are fighting for the very survival of humanity over the next 30 to 50+ years. Most if not all of humanity and civilization will end if we fail to slow and lessen global warming enough not to cross carbon 600 ppm and, we fail to move our critical infrastructure and essential populations to the far north or the far south in time.
Secondly, Our fossil fuel "bill of consequences" has come due, and there's no way to escape it. We now have to deal with the horrible accumulated consequences of the fossil fuel carbon pollution of our atmosphere for the last 200 years (since the industrial revolution began. ) Additionally, we also have to deal with the extra accumulating consequences from fossil fuel burning over the next 30-50+ years where we will undoubtedly reach the carbon 500 ppm level (and most likely reach carbon 600 ppm extinction level.)
Thirdly, the fossil fuel pollution that we have now and that we will continue to put into our atmosphere for the next 30-50+ years will last for centuries to thousands of years! If we stay on our current path of "too little fossil fuel reductions too late," things will not be better for those who are lucky enough to survive. Our children and future generations will curse us for our selfishness and blind stupidity. They will suffer for many centuries before their climate will re-stabilize and carbon in parts per million level to drop back down to the pre-industrial safer carbon level of 350-270 ppm. (As mentioned earlier, we are now at about carbon 413 ppm adding about three additional carbon ppm each year.)
Forthy, the amount of emergency adaptation work needed and the short amount of time available (from now until about 10-20 years from now as things get progressively much worse,) makes this immediate adaptation and preparation step an action and planning imperative! Adapting and moving all necessary critical resources, technology, infrastructure will take a lot of time. This mass transfer means moving them into the safer areas near or above the 45th parallel north or near or below the 45th parallel south. (You do not want to move much above the 55th parallel north or much above the 55th parallel south.)
And finally, these transfers will be a massive undertaking, which will require new levels of cooperation between nations never seen before.
This mass population transfer and the demands of justice also means:
1. Moving willing people that already are suffering and are the most vulnerable today to the worst global warming consequences. This initial series of mass migrations must be done without panic and in a well-organized and well-supported way. These first migration relocations also will be a necessary rehearsal for the additional millions of people that will need to be relocated each year as global warming worsens and makes growing food and surviving impossible in many areas.
2. Moving hundreds of millions of willing people (eventually a many as several billion) from the most unsafe global warming zones into the safer zones. This mass migration will be fraught with challenges that will require profound international cooperation at unprecedented levels. This ongoing year-by-year migration will, by necessity and urgency, become the greatest migration in human history.
This "Great Migration" without question needs to begin now! If we wait until it's too late, there will be panic, chaos, and severe conflicts if not all-out international war as the remaining trapped populations and any lottery losers desperately try to migrate far north or far south.
People will eventually realize that what is happening today is not random, lousy weather. They will finally see our worsening climate as an increasing pattern of storms and other extreme weather consequences regularly increasing in frequency, severity, and scale that has not been seen for thousands of years if ever. Once they realize this, many more will then migrate.
By about 2029, we estimate that at least 2-5% of the world's population will have figured out that the wild climate fluctuations and seasonal extremes that they are witnessing are not random or freak occurrences. They will have figured out that the climate is destabilizing steadily and rapidly. They too will realize the climate catastrophes we are already experiencing are showing a clear pattern of ever-increasing severity, frequency, and scale (the size of the area they are covering).
Once these hundreds of millions of people realize they need to get out soon or get caught in the suffering, chaos, and death of crashing and soaring real estate, economies, and market prices (depending upon which area you're leaving or moving to,) they will migrate, and they will migrate desperate and fast!
Once these hundreds of millions migrate, others remaining will see and hear about it. Then those people will begin migrating, so they too do not get caught with no place to move to or too few resources left to get there.
To avoid the potential chaos of the Great Migration not well managed by cooperating world governments, our governments need to act NOW and not ten years from now. (Part 4 of the Job One Plan has creative workarounds for how we can get our politicians to begin the extinction saving action steps of Part 3 of the Job One Plan so we will have to relocate far fewer people.)
Lastly, to make the new migration lottery system work effectively individuals already living near or above the 45th parallel north or near or above the 45th parallel south cannot and should not be removed to make room for new climagees. This existing resident removal strategy would only cause more conflict, delay, and confusion, which would further complicate an already massively complex undertaking.
Action Step 2: We need to ensure that nuclear reactors, nuclear and biological weapons, and toxic chemical manufacturing sites within all global warming unsafe zones are secured.
Secured means that the remaining more-stable governments have an adequately resourced and ready backup plan already in place for managing these contingencies as the less stable governments and economies collapse in the unsafe zones.
As global warming worsens inside the global warming unsafe zones, the political systems and nations will destabilize, and most of them will collapse. Once those political systems collapse, there will be no longer be stable and organized procedures, staffing, or resources for ensuring that:
1. any nuclear reactors within those areas do not meltdown and go critical or that,
2. nuclear or biological weapons within those areas are not stolen or triggered or that,
3. toxic chemical manufacturing sites within those areas do not leak.
If any of this happened, it would threaten not only the survival of that particular area, region, or the nations within that unsafe zone; it would also threaten the survival of the whole world.
Take a moment to imagine the hundreds of nuclear reactors in the global warming unsafe zones becoming new Chernobyls and Fukagimas one after another. There would be no place on earth nor any bunker that would keep you safe from this massive amount of radiation circling the planet for decades to hundreds to thousands of years.
Now take a moment to imagine, all of the biological and chemical weapons and toxic chemical manufacturing sites in the unsafe global warming zones becoming compromised and leaking their slow and painful death out into the world. Surviving this would be a living hell and near impossible.
The preceding worst-case nuclear, biological, and chemical catastrophe is what will likely happen if the nations of the world do not preemptively cooperate in this emergency area. The world's nations need to realize that our escalating global warming emergency is a no-win game unless they collaborate and make the best possible decisions to preserve the human species and our civilization.
If the governments of the world do not thoroughly do this action step two, there is no rational or reasonable hope that even the smallest part of the human race will survive to save civilization and repopulate the earth within the global warming safer zones.
Action Step 3: Moving critical infrastructure also includes moving the world's artistic, architectural, and cultural heritage from the global warming unsafe zones to the global warming safe zones for preservation. The best of our art, architecture, and cultures are also what makes us human. These things contain critical elements of our history and who we are that will help keep us sane while going through this catastrophe.
Action Step 4: Educate and incentivize having the citizens of every nation to begin their emergency preparations and backup plans. To be successful in saving the future, it is not only governments that must start acting in this area. Simultaneously, every citizen also needs to be responsible for themselves and become a part of the greatest mobilization of resources and people in human history. It is unlikely any government will have enough resources to protect all of its citizens. That is why you must begin your own Plan B preparations and planning. (The Job One plan has specific steps to help you do this. Click here to begin this section in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.)
Action Step 5: Pass new laws to prevent all unfair profiteering by any individual, corporation, or nation seeking to exploit the extinction emergency or the mass migrations to safer areas. It is critical to set severe penalties and to remove all profit from any entity charging more than the reasonable pre-emergency prices for food land or anything else. (Click here to begin this section in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.)
Action Step 6: While the governments of the world are doing all of the action steps in 1-5 above, it is critically important that they also engage in the action steps described in Part 3 of the Job One Plan. These additional steps are absolutely essential to slowing down global warming enough so we still have adequate time left to prepare, adapt, and migrate so at least some of humanity can survive.
Never forget that the actions needed for this survival kit and Plan B for humanity for climate change, global warming, and many of the other critical global challenges we currently face can only successfully occur if the wealthier nations near, above, or just below the 45th parallel north and the 45th parallel south work together and cooperate with all of the other nations within the global warming unsafe zones. If fear takes hold, and the global warming safer nations close or restrict borders and do not cooperate, the conflicts/wars that will occur between the unsafe zones and the safe zones will most likely also end humanity. Humanity will find its bitter end in nuclear, biological, and chemical warfare or the other toxic meltdown consequences described above. (For more on this see the later phases of the global warming Climageddon Scenario.)
We do need to begin transferring willing populations and critical infrastructure from high risks unsafe zones to low-risk safer zones immediately! We need to start to put the resources in place and negotiate the treaties (or whatever resources and manpower is necessary,) to ensure that the nuclear sites, the biological and chemical weapons sites, and the toxic chemical manufacturing sites in the unsafe zones go on being correctly maintained no matter how bad it gets in those zones.
There is much to transfer, build, or prepare. There is little time left to save the even smallest part of humanity and our civilization. Only by immediately beginning the above governmental emergency back up plan steps do we have any reasonable hope that human life and civilization will go on.
There are additional good reasons for our using the least optimistic climate change and global warming predictions for any backup plan as well as for recovery or long-term survival plans, they are:
2. The sudden, large-scale unpredictability that each additional crossed tipping point creates. (See this tipping point page or the tipping point chapter in Climageddon. Also, see the updated Climageddon Scenario details here.
3. We will be very, very lucky if the worst we get is anything close to only the 'IPCC's current least optimistic consequence and timeframe projections! And,
4. If you are involved in mid to long-range planning in any industry, you will probably lose your job if you fail to adequately plan for the new realities of the escalating global warming extinction emergency. (Please note that implementing the above backup plan also means our local and regional business planners, city and zoning planners, long-term corporate and, national governmental planners must begin radically restructuring their current 5, 10, 25, and 50-year plans. This time they need to use the least optimistic and far more honest climate prediction scenarios [found on this website here as well as in the new Climageddon book.]
For example, in the San Francisco Bay Area, the headquarters of big tech corporations like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Apple, now have to readjust their long-term operational or relocation plans to deal with their low-lying international headquarters facing as much as 13 feet [3.9 meters] of sea-level rise by 2100. This means these billion-dollar high-tech Silicon Valley headquarters buildings will be experiencing first-floor flooding within as little as 20 to 30 years. [A worst-case but far more realistic scenario of a 10-foot, 3-meter rise by 2050 was projected by James Hansen's newest research, with the additional 3-feet, 0.9 meters accounting for by coincident king tides and storm surges.)
Never forget that unless we get the governments of the world to cooperate, manage, and execute the action steps above, there is vastly smaller hope humanity will survive no matter how well prepared we are.
At this point, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed by what you have read and the enormity of the challenges we must overcome to survive. You may also believe the task is so enormous with such a low probability of success, why even try.
The following story may help you to begin to deal with those ideas and emotions.
The wise general
A wise Chinese general was cornered at the banks of a large river by an opposing army at least 20 times larger than his own. His only means of escape was to get his army across the river before they were attacked. This general had also previously placed enough boats on the bank of the river for escape with his army should that need arise.
As the larger army approached, pushing the smaller army closer to the river, this general gave the order to his most trusted lieutenants to rush to the boats and burn them. When his army saw their only means of escape was being destroyed, they became wildly angry and charged toward the general. The army demanded to know why their trusted general had burned their escape boats and condemned all of them to certain death at the hands of a vastly superior army.
The general calmly said, “We will win this battle or we will die. There is no other alternative and no escape.”
His army now knew their only option was victory or death. Filled with such clarity and single-mindedness of purpose, they fought with such focused intensity, they defeated the opposing army 20 times their size.
Now that you better understand the rapidly approaching extinction consequences of our global warming extinction emergency from the science and analysis found on this website, you too should no longer retain any illusion of any long-term escape for you or your family, business, or nation from immense suffering and likely extinction --- if we do not deal with the reality of this emergency.
What you also may not have realized yet, is that our 35-year failure to have previously started effective fossil fuel usage reductions means that we too, in effect, have already burned our escape boats! Because of this, like the Chinese army, we either win or we die.
This is the perilous and sad point that we have come to because of our inaction and ineffectiveness in addressing global warming and the required fossil fuel reductions for almost 35 years.
The good news is if we act wisely, cooperatively, and immediately on the above Plan B, and we radically cut fossil fuel use to close to the 2025 targets, humanity and civilization may have a chance to continue.
So what do you have to lose? What rational alternative do you have than to act immediately to begin Plan B as well as radically reduce your personal fossil fuel use?
What legitimate excuse is there for you to not to help us get our governments to enforce the required radical fossil fuel reductions by the necessary deadlines and that only governments can achieve? (This is done in Part 3 and Part 4 of the Job One Plan.)
The reality is, failure is no longer a conscionable option.
More About Parts 3 and 4 of the Job One Plan, which are Critical to Slowing Down the Coming Global Warming Catastrophes
(Special Note: The action steps described 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.)
The Action Steps best suited for Politicians, Celebrities, Ultra-wealthy Corporations, Philanthropies, Ultra-wealthy Individuals, and the World's Intelligence Agencies
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 do while you are doing Part 1 at the same time so that you are working for the best while you also prepare for the worst.
This information for politicians, ultra-wealthy corporations and individuals, philanthropies, and national intelligence agencies is found only in Parts 3 and 4 of the Job One Plan. It contains what absolutely must be done immediately by those entities if we are going to have any real chance of saving humanity from the likely extinction of most of humanity by mid-century. This does not even cover what will happen to all animals and other biological life.
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 government-driven actions described in Part 3 of the Job One Plan. Only their actions will work to reduce greenhouse gases down to carbon neutrality and net zero in time to save the future. Additionally, it is only Part 3 of the Job One Plan executed successfully that will eventually return us to safe atmospheric carbon levels of carbon 350- 270 parts per million, [ppm]. (We are at about carbon 413 ppm now.)
For Part 3 of the Job One Plan, click here
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 reaching the mass human 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 — particularly on why many wealthy individuals, corporations, etc will want to help us solve this emergency!
Even though Parts 3 and 4 of the Job One Plan are the most difficult parts of the Job One Plan for most individuals, it is still wise to read and do them if you have the energy and resources. They are the critically important steps to helping us in reducing global fossil fuel use enough to slow down global warming enough so that:
1. the world will have more time to prepare for the very worst of the coming global warming consequences,
2. the more we reduce global fossil fuel use, the more individuals will survive longer and more comfortably,
3. the world will have more time to get the 12 other critical global challenges under control.
For Part 4 of the Job One Plan, click here
Part 4 contains creative ideas on how individuals without direct influence on politicians can have an indirect influence on politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, and individuals to help get the must-do critical actions found in Part 3 done. Part 4 also contains essential reading for individuals who do have a direct influence on their politicians — particularly on why many wealthy individuals and corporations will want to help us solve this emergency.
Getting the governments of the world to act or work together is a Herculean task. Saving our future will require nothing less than a massive mobilization of our politicians and the major governments of the world and their resources.
Part 4 offers indirect influence strategies, bypasses, and creative workarounds that if enough of us do them, might help influence the politicians, intelligence agencies and ultra-wealthy corporations, philanthropies, and individuals that do have the influence to enact the critical government-driven actions described in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.
The good news is that, if we successfully execute the 4 parts of the Job One Plan, humanity and most other species will survive the global warming extinction emergency.
You now have all you need to select where to start your own Job One Plan and begin. We really need your help and creativity to meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction goals, and to prepare for the next wave of more severe and more extensive global warming consequences.
We are an all-volunteer organization. If you do not self-organize your available resources, the emergency will go from mass extinction to total extinction.

The essential positive perspective on the above disruptive global warming and climate change news
Despite the many types of 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. Although we are now in what could be called a Great Global Collapse process triggered by accelerating global warming, this collapse process will eventually offer equal to (or even greater than) long-term benefits in the form of a potential Great Rebirth beyond the coming suffering and loss.
First on this page (that has been read almost 2 million times,) and then this other critical global warming benefit page, you will find the many often hidden surprise benefits of the global warming challenge. You also will find a framework and the possibilities for what could be called a post-collapse Great Rebirth, no matter how bad the collapse process gets.
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 opportunities. We can never forget that we are engaged in nothing less than the most critical and meaningful evolutionary opportunity, challenge, and adventure in human history!
It 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.
Get started today 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 you 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.
