There are many climate change and global warming benefits that will help you create or maintain a balanced and healthier perspective about any sad, angry, or other negative feelings you might have about this challenging issue.
This article was designed to help you see all of the great things that will happen as we work toward and achieve our new future without the threats and consequences of accelerating climate change and global warming looming over our heads.
Below you will find the many benefits and even some dark benefits and "silver linings" of the climate change and global warming emergency.
We hope that you will regularly review the following benefits list to keep your emotional balance, motivation, and spirits up throughout the long and challenging global warming resolution process ahead of us.
The benefits list below envisions the many evolutionary benefits that are possible as we work cooperatively toward resolving the global warming emergency. The last part of the benefits list even covers the unexpected benefits if we fail to work together successfully to resolve the global warming emergency.
We have discovered that a regular review of this benefits list was critical to keeping our staff and volunteers from worrying too much about how challenging things are currently. The regular review of this list has successfully kept our staff maintaining their motivation and staying on-mission for over 12 years.
This is also one of the most-read pages on our Job One website. It has been read well over 2 million times.
The benefits we will experience while both working toward and by achieving the critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets:
Global Warming Benefit 1 - A beautiful world and having any livable future that we get --- if we make the right choices and meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.
Imagine a world with clean, fresh air that did not kill us or make our children ill. Imagine a world of new livelihoods and lifestyles where former fossil fuel workers transform our transportation system. Imagine them building fast, green bullet trains and expanding universal access to self-driving electric vehicles eliminating the need for most private transportation and parking lots.
Now imagine existing parking lots and the roofs of our many buildings becoming organic gardens or parks or, solar panel farms. Imagine our cities transformed into safe and healthy places and healthy forests, soils, waterways, and oceans again helping to clean our air and water and feed us sustainably.
We still have time to fix our global warming mess by reaching the 2025 global targets and have all these good things and much, much more. We still have one last opportunity to keep the world from getting so warm that it will kill off most of us, but only if we choose to resolve the fossil fuel caused global warming emergency.
Imagine we make the right 2025 global fossil fuel reduction target choices, and in doing this, we also become good stewards of the world and our futures.
And finally, imagine we do we make the urgently needed 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. We have preserved hope for both ourselves and for future generations that life will go on and that the quality of our lives will get better. By acting now we get to experience and preserve for ourselves and future generations the opportunity to survive and thrive and experience a true sustainable prosperity.
Climate Change and Global Warming Benefit 2 - When we resolve the single greatest disruptor and threat multiplier of the 21st century (which is accelerating global warming and climate change,) we will be simultaneously reducing many of the negative consequences of the world's 12 other critical systemic challenges. Here is a brief listing of these other 12 critical global challenges:
Global Challenge 1: Resolving the current COVID-19 global pandemic,
Global Challenge 2: increasing global economic instabilities,
Global Challenge 3: ever-rising over-population,
Global Challenge 4: rising global resource depletion,
Global Challenge 5: escalating pollution of lands, air, and waters.
Global Challenge 6: loss of biodiversity,
Global Challenge 7: growing economic inequality, social and racial injustice, hunger, and poverty.
Global Challenge 8: escalating regional and international terrorism, conflicts, and war,
Global Challenge 9: Mass migrations,
Global Challenge 10: New COVID-19 like pandemics and other new and old disease epidemics, will likely occur every decade.
Global Challenge 11: increasing political instability and collapsing governments, and
Global Challenge 12: Our failure to evolve effective global governance.
As we resolve global warming, we will also be making most of the world's 12 critical global challenges (above) far, far easier to resolve!
We can build a beautiful, more sustainable world and future for all, but only if we manage the global warming emergency.
Most of our best social, economic, and political values, goals, and human rights will also become far easier and more probable to achieve once we get our accelerating global warming emergency resolved. (Those values, goals and human rights are shown in the Sustainable Development illustration below)
We can create the world in which we and future generations will love to live. We can build a new world of far greater peace and security! We can greatly facilitate and expedite the possibility of reaching all of the following wonderful life-enhancing Sustainable Development and Sustainable Prosperity Goals.
Said in a slightly different way, here are just a few of the potential evolutionary changes in values, goals, and processes that will be far easier to improve or make once accelerating global warming is under control. We will be better able to:
1. end racial and educational justice,
2. create universal healthcare,
3. end wealth and income equity,
4. create housing and employment equity,
5. reduce our destructive consume/pollute/waste consumerism,
6. end critical resource depletion and create resource rebalancing,
7. allow for the return and strengthening of biodiversity because of reduced pollution and encroachment into natural habitats,
8. create the next evolutionary economic fair exchange system beyond our current corporate greed-based capitalism. This new economic system will not rely upon the false fundamental principle of unlimited growth within the closed and limited Earth system. And,
9. create effective global governance based on the collective wellbeing of all planetary citizens vs. our current corporatocracy for the benefit of a wealthy few that we have now. (To begin to repair corporatocracy we would need to remove all personhood rights from corporations, hold them strictly responsible to the principles of the triple bottom line and make them pay for all pollution and harm they have caused exporting their waste and pollution upon the public commons.)
All of the previous items will help build a sustainable prosperity and a just and equitable future for ALL of humanity, including all of the biological life which also sustains us. All of the above things can help create a global civil society with individual human rights and responsibilities held in appropriate balance with community and government rights and responsibilities.

Before reading on, please take a moment and visualize how much better your life and our world will be when all of the beautiful values and goals listed below are improved and achieved! (To see the expanded details on the 12 other critical global challenges we must face and resolve to have a future, click here.)
Resolving global warming will allow us to make continuing progress on addressing all of the world's 12 other critical systemic challenges! On the other hand, if we do not get global warming emergency resolved, and the climate continues to de-stabilize at the current rate, there will be no practical way to fix the 12 other global challenges or to make continued progress on or ever realize most of the above Sustainable Prosperity and Development values, goals, and human rights. (To see a detailed and expanded description of each of humanity's other 12 critical global challenges to better understand how important it is for us to manage our global warming emergency, click here.)
Climate Change and Global Warming Benefit 3 - We are intelligent and adaptive beings and we are able to resolve or adapt to almost anything. As we fully engage with ending the global warming emergency and the climate re-stabilization process (using the Job One for Humanity Plan), we will also be continuing to advance the natural foundation for a long-term Sustainable Prosperity for everyone.
Climate Change and Global Warming Benefit 4 - Despite the escalating threats before us, we can still fully enjoy our normal daily lives for quite a while longer (depending on our current location,) as we work together to resolve the many challenges of the rapidly escalating global warming emergency.
Climate Change and Global Warming Benefit 5 - We do not have to "polarize to mobilize" because ultimately, we are all in the same boat when it comes to the global warming emergency and the other 12 global challenges we now all now face. We can only do this together!
Climate Change and Global Warming Benefit 6 - We can trust 13.8 billion years of evolutionary progress, success, and momentum to help get us through this emergency and adaptive challenge.
Climate Change and Global Warming Benefit 7 - In resolving this emergency, we will be forced to pilot new and more effective models of global governance. In fact, we will have to evolve some effective form of global governance with legislative, executive, and judicial powers or we will not be able to solve global warming in time.
Climate Change and Global Warming Benefit 8 - By being forced toward a sustainable future to survive, we create hundreds of millions of new, well paid green energy generation and transition jobs.
