Today's Climate Change Facts that will Most Affect Your Lives and Life Plans

Prologue

The current climate change condition and climate research summary (below) is published by Job One for Humanity, an independent, publicly-funded, non-profit climate change think tank. This climate research was last updated on 11.24.2022.

Introduction 

The climate facts below tell the uncensored story of climate change, global heating, and our global fossil fuel burning reduction challenge. These uncensored facts will illuminate that our climate change future is far worse than we are being told. However, immediate action is still possible and provides the best approach to creating a safer and more secure future.

 

 

We do not expect you to believe the following climate change facts blindly. Below the climate overview further down the page, you will also find an expanded version of each fact. In the expanded version we have provided more details and links to the climate science and analysis to help you decide if that fact is accurate.

In fact, we challenge you or any climate scientist to prove any of the following climate facts below wrong.

Even if you initially disbelieve what you are about to read, that is ok. The final and ultimate proof of the climate facts below will be you watching or experiencing those climate consequences unfold around the world. At some point, you will see or, experience more record-breaking extreme weather as the climate emergency worsens. Nothing is more convincing than personally witnessing or experiencing these ever-increasing record-breaking extreme weather events, (which 95% of the world has already done.) 

We understand how disturbing it may be to review the uncensored climate information below. Accordingly, you will also find links to practical solutions tailored to climate change remedies and resilience-building actions that you can personalize to your situation and resources. 

 

 

Your quick summary overview of today's uncensored climate facts

"If we can not see or acknowledge today's climate reality as it really is, it is doubtful we will ever be able to improve or fix it." Lawrence Wollersheim

Let's look at today's uncensored climate condition consequences and timeframes, the inconvenient truth, and the reality that, unfortunately, so few climate change educators and even environmental groups are willing to speak about or acknowledge openly. 

Please find our highly probable and almost certain climate future below. It is the core message of this website concerning current climate change conditions.

Fact 1: Over the last six decades, our governments have completely failed to fix the accelerating global warming emergency. The painful bill for this unconscionable long-term governmental failure has now come due.

Fact 2: By 2025-2031, the severity, frequency, and scale of extreme weather events will increase radically far beyond where it is now! Climate change-driven extreme weather events are defined in part, as heatwaves, heat domes, droughts, wildfires, hurricanes, cyclones, tornados, floods and flooding, rain bombs, wind storms [Derechos], dust storms, wildfire smoke events, unseasonable cold spells, and other abnormal unseasonal weather. This radical increase in climate consequences is because of the cumulative atmospheric greenhouse gas pollution effects of over 150 years of the burning of fossil fuels.) 

Fact 3: Today's legitimate global fossil fuel reduction targets require all developed countries and governments (including China and India) to compel their citizens to reduce ALL fossil fuel use by about 75% by 2025. This honest global fossil fuel reduction target is so high because our governments wasted sixty years when necessary reductions could have been gradual and more manageable. 

When you hear the media or politicians tell you we have to reduce global fossil fuel use by 40-50% by 2030, 2040, or 2050 they are dead wrong. If we use those grossly underestimated reduction targets, billions more of us will also be dead. 

Fact 4: Missing the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets (and consequently crossing the atmospheric carbon threshold of carbon 425-450 parts per million [ppm]) means we also will trigger the first extinction-accelerating global warming tipping point, and we will enter the second phase of runaway global heating.

We are currently at the insane carbon 420 ppm risk level, and we will enter and cross the threshold of the first extinction-triggering tipping point (and phase two runaway global warming) sometime between 2025-2031. (According to James Hansen, the renowned NASA climate scientist, we entered the first phase of runaway global heating when we passed the carbon 386 ppm level in 2015.)

Fact 5: Because our governments did not effectively reduce global fossil fuel use and heating during the last six decades, crossed climate tipping points, climate feedbacks, and accelerating climate consequences will cause the unavoidable extinction of about half of humanity by about mid-century. (This mass extinction process will be driven primarily by global crop failures, starvation, and the conflicts that will naturally arise because of accelerating primary and secondary climate change-driven consequences and mass migrations.

Many nations will have to go into martial law to maintain law and order. Human rights and democracies will suffer deeply as our climate stability deteriorates.

Fact 6: With the little remaining time left to act, the only effective way to save what remains of humanity post-mid-century from the even worse near-total extinction process is for our governments to get close to the 75% global fossil fuel reduction 2025 target as soon as possible.

Here are the "what do we need to do now to save ourselves" climate facts.

Fact 7: Only immediate and massive 75% global fossil fuel reduction actions by our governments can save us at this late stage of climate destabilization. Only government action can protect the remaining half of post-mid-century humanity from an even worse, near-total extinction process occurring during the period of 2050 to about 2080. (The surprising reason why we will not go totally extinct is explained in the expanded explanation in a link below.) 

Fact 8: There is still hope to save at least half of humanity if our governments act NOW! To fix the runaway global heating extinction emergency, we must finally use the legitimate 2025 global fossil fuel reduction target of 75% and execute a comprehensive fossil fuel reduction plan that will work (like the Job One Plan.

Fact 9: Despite being highly probable and almost certain that half of humanity will perish by about mid-century because of sixty years of government climate change ineffectiveness, there is still much good news. While humanity can no longer escape a climate-caused mass die-off and its global turmoil, humanity can learn from these painful climate catastrophe lessons.

Additionally, when we finally resolve the global heating extinction emergency, humanity's recovering survivors can receive the positive benefits of a Great Global Rebirth! (The Great Global Rebirth page is the most-read page on our website.)

Fact 10: Everything our governments are doing currently to fix the climate emergency is still "far too little, far too late." Desperate individual actions to reduce personal fossil fuel use alone will not save us at this 11th hour. 

Consequently, many individuals and businesses have wisely started their "Plan B" emergency preparation, adaptation, and survival plans to ensure they and their loved ones make it through the painful climate consequences ahead. (They enact these preparation, adaptation, and survival actions while still doing everything within their power to get our governments to fact.)

As part of their Plan B, many individuals are also completing other meaningful personal actions before accelerating climate destabilization consequences, their financial losses, and resulting conflicts eliminate remaining possibilities and radically change our everyday lives for decades. They are also preparing their loved ones for what is coming. Additionally, as sustainably as possible, some individuals are visiting the natural wonders that are disappearing daily (glaciers, coral reefs, and the African plains).

Global fossil fuel reductions are currently far too little and far too late due to our government's ineffective efforts to fix climate change. Therefore, because of this horrific governmental failure, we believe every individual has the inalienable right to decide how to best live their last years of relative climate, economic, and political stability. (More about this in the expanded facts below.)

 

 

Like the cigarette industry's decades of misinformation, disinformation, and regulation delaying tactics, the far better-funded fossil fuel industry's deceptive climate change disinformation, misinformation, and regulation delaying tactics have successfully kept the above climate change global heating facts from you for decades. 

Other Essential Climate Change Facts:

These facts are also explained in more detail further below.

Fact 1: No miracle "new technology" (like carbon capture) currently exists at the needed scale or cost efficiency to save humanity from our accelerating global heating nightmare before about half of humanity is dead. Hoping for some "new technology" to be discovered at the last minute to save us --- is a horrible strategy dooming ALL to fail.

Fact 2: Our governments have squandered six valuable decades in self-deception, not fixing our climate change and global heating emergency. In a section further below, you will discover the many painful reasons for our leader's and governments' gross, dangerous, and immoral failure. 

Fact 3: After we pass the carbon 425-450 ppm level, a huge looming climate change tipping point and a great global disruptor is called the Thwaites "doomsday glacier." It may collapse into the Antarctic Ocean as soon as 2025-2028 or in the following decades. It is the size of England, and its collapse will initially raise global sea level by 2-3 feet and later up to 10 feet more over many decades. Because half the world's population lives along our sea coasts, the Thwaites glacier's collapse would trigger unimaginable global chaos.

Fact 4: Worldwide insurance companies are quickly adapting their policies to eliminate climate change's many accelerating financial losses and high-risk areas. Please see this new article for more about the avalanche of climate change-relatedinsurance cancellations, denials, and soaring rates for homes, businesses, mortgages, and crop failure insurance.

Once you finally digest the unsettling impact of the above information, the big question will be, "what will YOU do to share this information with others before it is too late for our governments to fix what is coming?" 

Why does our independent climate change think tank provide the above and below uncensored climate information?

Because we firmly believe you:

  1. Have a right to have the same climate change information quietly being given exclusively to the world's wealthiest individuals and corporations by their expensive and highly-secretive risk analysis firms. 
  2. Have a legitimate and inalienable right to the same uncensored climate change life and death-related information that privileged individuals within the government, military, and intelligence agencies have been briefed on. 
  3. Have the same right to have the same life-and-death advanced warnings about coming climate change catastrophes as those in privileged positions. 
  4. Have the same right to prepare your loved ones for the many now unavoidable climate change consequences. You also have the same right to protect your assets, just as the wealthy, the military, and the politically privileged are quietly doing now. And you,
  5. Have the right to be treated as a mature adult citizen who can (and has) successfully dealt with difficult news so that you have adequate time to respond and manage it.

Our climate change think tank is tired of seeing ordinary citizens and the poor consistently suffer the greatest climate change-related losses and deaths. They suffer these losses and deaths significantly because they do not have the same access to uncensored climate change information that is first discreetly given to the privileged, wealthy, and high-level government members. Please keep reading if you believe that access to accurate, uncensored climate change information should be equally available to everyone.

Short Explanations for Each of Today's Critical Climate Change Facts

The climate facts below also are what the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations (previously the most recognized authority on climate change) should have published in their latest 2022 climate summary report, but they, too, have been adversely affected by the near-unlimited lobbying power of the 28 trillion dollar-a-year fossil fuel industry. 

Fact 1: Over the last six decades, our governments have completely failed to fix the accelerating global warming emergency. The painful bill for this unconscionable governmental management failure has now come due. 

There is no better measure of the last sixty years of our government's success or failure in reducing global warming than the amount of carbon going into our atmosphere. This is because more carbon going into the atmosphere directly causes the average global temperature to rise.

Look carefully at the atmospheric carbon graph below.

 

 

As you can see, we are adding more carbon into the atmosphere from the global burning of fossil fuels each year. According to the immutable laws of physics, this means ever-rising temperatures will resolutely follow every rise in atmospheric carbon.

But, worse yet, we are also adding more carbon to the atmosphere at faster and faster rates! (The dotted line in the graph above is getting steeper and increasing incrementally each year. This steepening line on the chart indicates we are adding more carbon to the atmosphere at faster and faster rates.)

To make our government's utter failure even more apparent:

In the 1960s, we only added about 0.5 carbon parts per million (ppm) to the atmosphere each year. 

In the 1970s, we added about 1.3 carbon ppm per year. 

In the 1980s and 1990s, we added about 1.5 carbon ppm per year. 

In the 2000s, we added about 2.0 carbon ppm per year. 

In the 2010s, we added about 2.4 carbon ppm per year. 

Over the 2020s, we have added about 2.7 carbon ppm per year. And,

We are now adding about 3 carbon ppm (or more) each year. 

What is essential about the graph below is that it illuminates on its right side how we have shockingly increased our annual rate of atmospheric carbon pollution by almost six times (if you also include what has happened in the 2020s.) 

 

 

Our rapid global annual carbon increase above also means that not only have we failed to reduce global fossil fuel for over six decades, but we have also actually radically increased the yearly fossil fuel pollution of our atmosphere! 

The graph below also painfully shows the annual increases in carbon (CO2) going into our atmosphere and our global governments utter failure to reduce global fossil fuel use over the last six decades. (The graph measures gigatons of carbon pollution going into our atmosphere. A gigaton is 1,000,000,000 tonnes.)

 

 

This is the state of our past global fossil fuel reduction efforts, and you will not hear many publicly speaking this horrible truth.

We must now face the reality that we have utterly failed to control the accelerating global warming nightmare. This failure is despite the many international conferences, treaties, reduction agreements, warnings, new climate policies, new climate laws, and the actions of thousands of global NGOs and environmental groups educating for decades about the extinction dangers of accelerating global heating. 

This real, gigantic and well-hidden failure is real and exists despite all contrary media or other climate reporting by those with hidden or vested financial interests in the fossil fuel industry.

Look again above at science's most accurate carbon measurement of our total reductions in global fossil fuel use and the true measure of our government's effectiveness in reducing escalating global heating. We have unequivocally failed to manage humanity's single greatest short-term threat (other than immediate global thermo-nuclear war.)

We will not be safe from runaway global warming and extinction until our governments get atmospheric carbon levels once again at or below about the carbon 350 ppm level.

Yes, this vast and continuous governmental climate management failure is tough to deal with, but to begin taking the correct climate path out of this mess, one must know honestly from where they are starting. An informed society that does not know where it currently is with its climate management progress will also not have the necessary urgency or focus to fix it.

Just in case you still believe your governments have been protecting you from the accelerating consequences of global heating caused by burning more and more fossil fuel, here is a graph showing all of the three major fossil fuel related greenhouse gases, carbon (CO2), methane (CH4) and Nitrous Oxide (N2O).

 

The next most important climate facts to know are about the severity and timing of our climate consequences.

Fact 2: By 2025-2031, the severity, frequency, and scale of extreme weather events will increase radically far beyond where it is now! Climate change-driven extreme weather events are defined in part, as heatwaves, heat domes, droughts, wildfires, hurricanes, cyclones, tornados, floods and flooding, rain bombs, wind storms [Derechos], dust storms, wildfire smoke events, unseasonable cold spells, and other abnormal unseasonal weather. This radical increase in climate consequences is because of the cumulative atmospheric greenhouse gas pollution effects of over 150 years of the burning of fossil fuels.) 

Climate change-driven extreme weather events can be defined in part as heatwaves, droughts, wildfires, hurricanes, floods and flooding, rain bombs, wind storms [Derechos], dust storms, wildfire smoke events, unseasonable cold spells, and abnormal unseasonal weather. 

Also, the biggest single global climate catastrophe to date is predicted to occur during this period.

This sudden 2025-2031 radical increase in climate consequence severity, frequency, and scale is because:

1. We will have already crossed key amplifying and critical climate tipping points and climate feedback loops and we will have stepped into the beginning stages of runaway global heating.

2. We also will be crossing more amplifying climate feedback loops and climate tipping points at even faster rates during the 2025-2031 period.

3. We will have crossed into a new level of atmospheric carbon pollution level where we reach carbon (CO2) 425-450 parts per million (ppm.) Lowered atmospheric carbon is the best and most accurate way to see the actual results of our past fossil fuel reduction efforts. (Again please see the atmospheric carbon graph below. As of March 2022, we were at carbon 421 ppm.)

 

 

4. We will also likely experience the largest climate tipping point catastrophe and global disruptor (the Thwaites "doomsday glacier.") It is now predicted to potentially collapse as soon as the next 3-5 years. This one "doomsday glacier" the size of England when it collapses will have quickly arriving dire global affects ---  a rising sea level of 2-3 feet.

This sudden 2-3 foot global sea level rise will cause the greatest real estate sell-off in human history. It will also cause a massive distribution and manufacturing breakdown for vital products and commodities essential for life.

Ports, coastal highways, sewage, water treatment, and power plants will also be disabled to some degree by this sudden rise in sea level (from about 2025-2028) as well as by the 7-10 feet of additional sea level rise that will follow the Thwaites glacier collapse in the following decades.

5. Our climate bill has finally come due because for the last sixty years, our governments have failed to fix climate change,  

According to James Hansen the respected NASA climate scientist, we first entered the beginning phases of runaway global heating when we passed the carbon 386 ppm level (and comitted ourselves to passing behyond the 1.5 degree Celsius increased global temperture level). 

Climate change and global heating consequences will not only rise radically. Eventually they will eventually increase exponentially, and at best, you may have only another 2-8 more years of relative climate stability, depending upon where you live. Beginning around 2025, if you are in a high-risk climate change and global heating area, the global warming consequences that you are already experiencing will start to become radically worse because of more crossed climate tipping points.

Take a look at the partial list of global heating consequences below. On the list below, food and other essential resource shortages, increased global starvation, and rapidly rising food prices will become rapidly intensifying and chronic problems.

Understanding what runaway global warming is can be challenging. If you imagined runaway global heating like a train without brakes rolling down a mountain that is getting steeper and steeper, you would have a good idea about the seriousness of our climate consequences soon rising radically.

To make the accelerating global heating problem more tangible, imagine a midwestern US state like Kansas already in a climate zone called “Tornado Alley.” Now envision that every year, the number of tornados, their intensity category and the area they affect keeps increasing.

Towns get wiped out. They try to rebuild. But before the new houses, businesses, and infrastructure are complete, they are wiped out again.

All the money just spent to repair the area has just blown away. So, what do they have left but to start over again? They do start to rebuild. And they get hit yet again. This happens over and over. Each time sooner with even bigger losses. That IS our global climate future with radically rising global heating.

If you are a science person, this link for Fact 2 will take you to documentation links and an expanded explanation of why global heating-related consequences will soon start rising exponentially in severity, frequency, and scale.

 

Fact 3: Today's legitimate global fossil fuel reduction targets require all developed countries and governments (including China and India) to compel their citizens to reduce ALL fossil fuel use by about 75% by 2025. This honest global fossil fuel reduction target is so high because our governments wasted sixty years when necessary reductions could have been gradual and more manageable. 

When you hear the media or politicians tell you we have to reduce global fossil fuel use by 40-50% by 2030, 2040, or 2050 they are dead wrong. If we use those grossly underestimated reduction targets, billions more of us will also be dead. 

If we do not get close to these 2025 global fossil fuel 75% reduction targets, our world will experience unavoidable, immoral, and cataclysmic climate-related consequences.

Radically reducing global fossil fuel use in all developed countries by 2025 is not the ineffective and deceptive net-zero emissions by 2030, 2040, 2050, or 2060 target pledges you hear all over the media and from our governments. These net-zero emission schemes cannot scale up fast enough to save us from mass to near-total extinction.

When you hear these net-zero emission plans being promoted instead of simply making the required 2025, 75% global fossil fuel reductions, know that someone behind the scenes is protecting fossil fuel industry profits. (Please see the detailed page for the science behind why these future net-zero emission pledges will not work in time to save humanity. Discover why you and your children will also pay a steep price for these false net-zero solutions and pledges diverting us from the correct 75% global fossil fuel reductions.)

(Undeveloped countries will have considerably lower 2025 targets due to climate justice factors, and they already have such low per-capita emissions.)

 

 

If you are a science person, this link for Fact 4 will take you to an expanded explanation about the details of all of the 75% survival-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. It includes documentation links and technical notes on how these fossil fuel reduction calculations were created.

 

Fact 4: Missing the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets (and consequently crossing the atmospheric carbon threshold of carbon 425-450 parts per million [ppm]) means we also will trigger the first extinction-accelerating global warming tipping point, and we will enter the second phase of runaway global heating.

We are currently at the insane carbon 420 ppm risk level, and we will enter and cross the threshold of the first extinction-triggering tipping point (and phase two runaway global warming) sometime between 2025-2031. (According to James Hansen, the renowned NASA climate scientist, we entered the first phase of runaway global heating when we passed the carbon 386 ppm level in 2015.)

If we do not get close to the 2025 targets, we set the stage for near-total human extinction, and we lose our last chance to be still able to reverse the climate damage that we have done for centuries to thousands of years. Additionally, missing the 2025 targets will trigger many amplifying climate feedback loops

Below this statement is a graphic titled “Positive Feedback Loop” It is an example of just one of the many accelerating global heating amplifying feedback loops.

 

The following global warming-related dangerous consequence interactions occur when climate tipping points and climate feedback loops within the climate system interact with each other and with rising global heating (as they are doing now.) When this happens, we are headed for even higher average global temperatures at an accelerated rate, and we put the global heating extinction process on the fast track. 

 

 

 

According to James Hansen, the former NASA climate scientist, in 2015, when we crossed the atmospheric carbon level of carbon 386 parts per million (ppm), we entered into the beginning phase of runaway global heating. We are currently around carbon 420 ppm. (See atmospheric carbon graph further above.) 

When we enter the atmospheric carbon 425-450 ppm range, occurring from now until about 2031, we enter the second phase of runaway global heating. This is the atmospheric carbon range where the primary and secondary climate consequences radically increase in severity, frequency, and scale

Worse yet, somewhere in the carbon 425-carbon 450 ppm range (or immediately after we cross carbon 450 ppm), we also will greatly accelerate the crossing of new climate tipping points and climate feedbacks to a level where runaway global heating will enter its second uncontrollable phase. 

Somewhere in that 425-450 ppm range, we also will reach the point that forces the average global temperature to rise two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial temperatures. Unfortunately, here is where the process of the near-total extinction of humanity begins, and our future is no longer in our control. 

Once we hit two degrees Celsius, we can not stop ourselves from reaching a 3, 4, 5, and possibly 6-degree Celsius temperature increase. Long before we get to the 5-degree Celsius increase, humanity will have reached the near-total extinction level. 

Worse yet, climate consequences will also increase exponentially after passing carbon 450 ppm. (To better understand this exponential change, read the four extinction-triggering climate tipping points.) 

It is essential to grasp what climate consequences suddenly increasing exponentially means. In the graph below the red line is an example of a linear gradual growth trajectory.  (Linear progression equals 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, etc.) The green line is an example of an exponential growth curve and trajectory. (Exponential progression equals 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 264, etc.)

 

 

(To find out what that near-total extinction means and how it will occur, read this page on the overview of the near-total extinction process, and then read this page on what will happen to us at faster and faster rates once we cross the carbon 450 ppm level.) 

If you are a science person, this link for Fact 4 will take you to documentation links and an expanded explanation of tipping point theory and the unfolding process of global heating's four extinction-accelerating tipping points activating and how it will affect your future.

 

Fact 5: Because our governments did not effectively reduce global fossil fuel use and heating during the last six decades, crossed climate tipping points, climate feedbacks, and accelerating climate consequences will cause the unavoidable extinction of about half of humanity by about mid-century. (This mass extinction process will be driven primarily by global crop failures, starvation, and the conflicts that will naturally arise because of accelerating primary and secondary climate change-driven consequences and mass migrations.

Many nations will have to go into martial law to maintain law and order. Human rights and democracies will suffer deeply as our climate stability deteriorates.

This mass extinction process for about half of humanity will initially be driven by climate consequence-related:

a. rising global temperatures,

b. low crop yields, crop failures, mass starvation, and

c. new regional, national, and international conflicts caused directly or indirectly by mass migrations of starving peoples or because of other climate-related key resource shortages.

Please note mass human extinction is not total human extinction. The difference between total and near-total extinction is explained here.) 

Crops will fail or be stunted because of global warming-aggravated heatwaves, rain bombs, droughts, flooding, wildfires, out-of-season cold spells, hail, Derechos (severe wind storms), and other extreme weather which destabilizes normal growing season conditions. The world's five principal grains (rice, wheat, maize [corn], millet, and sorghum) are particularly vulnerable to climate-caused massive crop failure. This crop failure occurs when temperatures (heat waves) are near or above 100 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 days during the regular growing season.

Increasing starvation increases mass migration to wherever there is more food. These mass hunger migrations cause more local, regional, and national conflicts, which creates an amplifying feedback loop of even more mass starvation, soaring food prices, economic instability, and more conflict. As conflicts grow in food-growing and producing countries, food production will drop even more because of the many food-growing and transportation disruptions caused directly or indirectly by those conflicts.

Many areas will have to go into martial law to maintain law and order and human rights, and democracies will suffer deeply.

 

 

(Please note that the above climate-related initial consequences are not the only reasons that about half of humanity will unavoidably die off by mid-century. This link for this climate fact 6 will take you to a detailed explanation and documentation links for both why and the step-by-step how the extinction of about half of humanity by mid-century will occur.)

The above Fact 6 is well-known by the world's leading intelligence agencies and many climate scientists and researchers. However, it is not in the public dialog or media because most major media is owned, controlled, or heavily influenced by fossil fuel-related industries.

With rising global temperatures, more global heating consequences (shown below) will interact, intensify and worsen. This consequence interaction below will contribute directly and indirectly to the extinction of about half of humanity by mid-century.

 

We have wasted six decades, and now the consequences of climate and global heating have worsened so much that it is too late to prevent the extinction of about half of humanity (about 3-4 billion people) by mid-century. This also means it is NOW time to prepare humanity for the many sacrifices we must make to get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. It is also time to prepare humanity for the unimaginable and unavoidable soon-arriving suffering. 

If you want to review additional climate science on why about half of humanity will go extinct by mid-century,  click here. We want you to have all of the science and analysis behind our half of humanity going extinct by mid-century statements. You will then know that the many painful and difficult changes you will soon need to make are genuinely warranted. 

This link for Fact 6 will take you to even more detailed information, explanations, and key links on the intensifying consequences, processes, crossed tipping points, and feedback loops that will unavoidably bring about the mass extinction of about half of humanity by the mid-century. 

 

Fact 6: With the little remaining time left to act, the only effective way to save what remains of humanity post-mid-century from the even worse near-total extinction process is, for our governments to get close to the 75% global fossil fuel reduction 2025 target as soon as is possible.

If our governments do not act now, this near-total extinction process could begin as soon as 2050-2080.

Near-total human extinction means that as much as 50% to 90%+ of the post-mid-century surviving population could also die. How much of what remains of humanity dies in the second wave of post-mid-century extinction depends upon how close we get to the 2025 global reduction targets and how soon we do it.

The faster and closer our governments get to the 2025 targets, the more of humanity will survive and live longer and more comfortable lives. Conversely, the longer it takes to reach those targets, the more of humanity will die and suffer the ever-intensifying consequences of our fossil fuel-burning actions.

There is significant good news in this challenging news. At worst, we will only suffer near-total extinction and not total human extinction. Even if we miss the 2025 targets by a considerable amount, both human and natural climate counteractions will eventually take place to first slow and then stop us from burning ever more fossil fuels. 

These human and natural climate counteraction processes will be severe in the form of Mother Nature simply killing off more and more of us. Mother Nature will continue killing us off this until humanity does not have enough remaining population to continue adding more carbon pollution from burning fossil fuels into the atmosphere. (The current estimate is that at least half of humanity would have to die off by about mid-century for this corrective and counterbalancing Mother Nature-driven die-off process to work.)  

Think of global fossil fuel burning, atmospheric carbon pollution, and global heating as giving the Earth a virus and fever. Next, imagine Mother Nature raising the temperature of the Earth until the consequences of that rising temperature have killed off enough of that virus (us) to allow her other climate and ecological systems to regain their natural balance. If you can imagine this, you would have a good idea of this dominant natural correction process that will take control if our governments fail to immediately and radically reduce our global fossil fuel use radically to get close to the 2025 global reduction targets.

(Please read the Climageddon Scenario illustration below starting from the bottom up! It will help you visualize and better understand the levels of climate and global heating consequences that will accelerate human extinction.

 

 

If you are a science person, this link for Fact 7 will discuss in more detail why our future, at worst, will only be a near-total extinction event and not total human extinction. This expanded Fact 5 link will also discuss the critical death percentage differences between mass, near-total, and total extinction scenarios. Finally, it will also take you to documentation links and expanded information on human and natural counteractions and the primary and secondary climate-related consequences that will eventually result in near-total human extinction described in Fact 5.

 

Here are the "what do we need to do now to save ourselves" facts.

 

Fact 7: Only immediate and massive global fossil fuel reduction action by our governments can save us at this late stage of climate destabilization and protect the remaining half of post-mid-century humanity from an even worse near-total extinction.

If our governments get close to the 2025 global reduction targets the worse we wll suffer is the loss of about half of humanity by mid-century. If our governments fail to get us close to the 2025 targets, our focus must shift to minimizing the percentage of the population that will continue to die after mid-century.

Our governments must also begin planning now for a massive population loss and a sudden global decline. (The surprising reason why we will not go totally extinct is explained in this link.)

 


If you are a science person, this link for Fact 8 will take you to documentation links and expanded information about the many silmeltaneous actions that our governments must do immediately to save humanity in time.

 

Fact 8: There is still hope to save at least half of humanity if our governments act NOW! To fix the runaway global heating extinction emergency, we must finally use the legitimate 2025 global fossil fuel reduction target of 75% and execute a comprehensive fossil fuel reduction plan that will work (like the Job One Plan.

Individuals and businesses must now work for the best and silmeltaneously prepare for the worst by:

a. making the necessary emergency preparations and adaptations needed to build their climateand global heating resilience vital to successfully managing the worst of the coming climate and global heating consequences. (If you are fortunate, well prepared, and in a global heating safer region (described in the expanded fact section,) you could survive 30-50 more years, possibly even longer. (Part one of the Job One for Humanity Plan B will help you do this.) 

b. demanding their national politicians reduce global fossil fuel use to get us close to the honest and correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. (This action step is mainly for individuals who can directly influence their national politicians. (See Part three of the Job One for Humanity Plan B to see what our governments must do.) 

c. making the necessary personal 75% fossil fuel use reductions to do their part to get us close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. (Part two of the Job One for Humanity Plan B will help you do this.) 

d. making better global heating decisions concerning what they want to do personally about the accelerating climate and runaway global heating consequences. (This might even include re-planing their lives or re-adjusting their priorities to focus on the meaningful and important things they may have delayed or failed to do. This information is also found in the Job One for Humanity Plan B.

E. demanding that our governments enact climate justice principles, which care equally for the climate survival and well-being of All peoples of Earth, particularly for those nations and peoples who were not the major creators of the massive carbon pollution of our atmosphere from fossil fuel burning. (Many peoples and nations were, and are not, the major creators of today's global heating extinction emergency.)

To act wisely and fix the runaway global heating emergency, it is also critical for every individual and business to know the accurate timeframes for the next even bigger waves of global heating consequences found here and in the Job One for Humanity Plan B. Understanding the coming global heating consequence timeframes will allow you and your loved ones adequate planning and action time to create the best possible global heating emergency outcomes while simultaneously preparing for the worst possible global heating outcomes.

The safe and unsafe areas map below for the safer global heating areas also will be explained on the expanded climate facts page and in its links.) In general, on the global heating risk map below if you live in areas between the red and yellow lines you have a considerably higher global heating risk level. 

 

 

If you are a science person, this link for Fact 10 will take you to the safest global heating areas and the timeframes you will need to know to prepare yourself for what is coming.

 

Fact 9: Despite being highly probable and almost certain that half of humanity will perish by about mid-century because of sixty years of government climate change ineffectiveness, there is still much good news. While humanity can no longer escape a climate-caused mass die-off and its global turmoil, humanity can learn from these painful climate catastrophe lessons.

Additionally, when we finally resolve the global heating extinction emergency, humanity's recovering survivors can receive the positive benefits of a Great Global Rebirth! (The Great Global Rebirth page is the most-read page on our website.)

(The Great Global Rebirth page is the most-read page on our website.)

There will be much suffering and death that we can no longer escape, but the many possible positive benefits for the lucky and wise survivors could create a world in which we ALL would want to live. We strongly recommend you come back to the following benefits link after you have finished this page and the three recommended actions at the bottom of the page. 

You have read a lot of terrible climate change and global heating news. It is now essential to balance all this bad news with appropriate good news and the realistic hope provided by the many positive possibilities of a Great Global Rebirth.

This benefits link leads to the most read page on our website, viewed over 2 million times. Click here to learn more about the many positive possibilities of fixing global heating and a Great Global Rebirth. 

If you are a science person, this link for Fact 11 will take you to documentation links and expanded explanations of this fact. 

 

Fact 10: Everything our governments are doing currently to fix the climate emergency is still "far too little, far too late." Desperate individual actions to reduce personal fossil fuel use alone will not save us at this 11th hour. 

Consequently, many individuals and businesses have wisely started their "Plan B" emergency preparation, adaptation, and survival plans to ensure they and their loved ones make it through the painful climate consequences ahead. (They enact these preparation, adaptation, and survival actions while still doing everything within their power to get our governments to fact.)

As part of their Plan B, many individuals are also completing other meaningful personal actions before accelerating climate destabilization consequences, their financial losses, and resulting conflicts eliminate remaining possibilities and radically change our everyday lives for decades. They are also preparing their loved ones for what is coming. Additionally, as sustainably as possible, some individuals are visiting the natural wonders that are disappearing daily (glaciers, coral reefs, and the African plains).

Global fossil fuel reductions are currently far too little and far too late due to our government's ineffective efforts to fix climate change. Therefore, because of this horrific governmental failure, we believe every individual has the inalienable right to decide how to best live their remaining years of relative climate, economic, and political stability. (More about this in the expanded facts below.)

(Managed retreat and climate change migration are also potential survival and adaptation strategies.) 

There are many soon-arriving climate consequence reasons for beginning a personal or business Plan B. The most powerful consequences is the Thwaites "doomsday glacier" which will soon collapse (about 2025-2028) raising sea levels up to 2-3 feet far too fast for humans to successfully adapt. 

Because of the immient Thwaites "doomsday glacier's" cataclysmic collapse and our other many accelerating climate consequences there will be partial to complete collapses of vulnerable, less resilient social, economic, political, and ecological systems as global heating soars and consequently as about half of humanity unavoidably goes extinct by mid-century. Moreover, few our our human systems will be able to withstand the desperate and increasing runaway global heating-driven, mass starvation, mass migrations, and the next wave of regional, national, and international resource conflicts.

If for no other reason, having personal and business emergency preparation completed is now critical because of the imminent Thwaites "doomsday glacier" collapse and it many related consequences. 

In addition to having the needed survival emergency preparation and adaptation steps, the Job One for Humanity Plan B is built upon the wise strategy of preparing for the worst possible outcomes while still staying focused on creating the best possible outcomes. This dual focus is necessary because if our governments don't act soon, there will be few of us left at the predicted post-mid-century higher global sea levels and temperatures, and surviving will be far more challenging.

The Job One Plan B is also about emotionally and physically preparing yourself (and your loved ones) for all of the terrible sacrifices and suffering that we must endure to make it through the many unavoidable and soon-arriving consequences of the runaway global heating emergency.

The Job One for Humanity Plan B also includes our governments at all levels (local, regional, and national) having a plan of managed climate retreat that prepares for the massive global heating-driven population collapse and the consequent sudden and steep global decline in most of our other global support systems. Plan B could even involve migrating to a new location that will be safer from the accelerating consequences of runaway global heating. 

Start your Job One Plan B soon, and do not forget that we must get our governments to act now to save as many people as possible. If you have any doubts that you need to start your Plan B immediately, read about the many soon-arriving and severe consequences of the Thwaites "doomsday glacier” before doing anything else.

Beyond Plan B actions, we also advise you to take full advantage of the relative climate stability we now still have to make your life and your relationships as meaningful and enjoyable as possible. This is due to many more dangerous climate tipping points being crossed soon.

Because of these crossed climate tipping points, from 2025 to 2031, climate consequences will radically increase in severity, frequency, and size of the area affected. We also may be dealing with 2 to 3 feet of sea level rise if Thwaites collapses during this period. 

After 2031 things only get worse as we cross even more major climate tipping points and climate consequences rise exponentially!

Our governments have completely failed us over the last 60 years in executing the rational, gradual actions needed to save us from this nightmare. And, it is highly improbable they will respond in time to avert horrific mass extinction consequences.

Because of the proceeding, our organization will not fault anyone who seeks to sustainably experience parts of nature that will not be there for long. Likewise, we will not shame anyone who chooses to live out their "bucket list" in such a terrible situation and projected future.

That being said, we continue to encourage everyone who comes across our uncensored climate information to simultaneously also do everything they can on the Job One for Humanity Plan that will finally get our governments to act. This way, we can, at least, save some part of humanity after mid-century.

If you have not done so, please look over the primary and secondary runaway global heating consequences on this page to understand what we are facing.

Other Essential Climate Change Facts

Additional Fact 1: No miracle "new technology" (like carbon capture, solar screening or geo-engineering) currently exists at the needed scale or cost efficiency capable of saving humanity from our accelerating global heating nightmare before about half of humanity is dead. Hoping for some "new technology" to be discovered at the last minute to save us --- is a horrible strategy dooming to fail.

The widely promised miracle "new technologies" that will save us from climate extinction are false solutions that steal the real urgency away from the runaway global heating emergency to reduce fossil fuels now, and worse yet:

1. None of the current miracle "new technology" climate solutions can come even close to globally scaling up in time (over the next three years) to compensate for our significantly missing the 2025 global targets. 

2. Most have not yet been proven to work (even at a small scale.)

3. All have not been adequately tested at a sufficiently large enough scale for unintended side effects. Any unknown and unintended side effects could create even greater problems than the problems they were designed to solve.

4. They are prohibitively costly. And,

5. Many burn so much fossil fuel trying to remove atmospheric carbon or geo-engineer the planet or atmosphere that their massive fossil fuel use eliminates their benefits. To implement the new technologies, massive amounts of energy will be needed to process the required raw materials and fabricate the solutions. To do this quickly, existing methods must provide the energy, which would further delay reaching global goals. And finally,

6. These miracle "new technologies" are falsely promising us that we can continue our lives of over-consuming, polluting, and burning fossil fuels as we are now. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Additionally, society is ignoring that we are reaching limits to the availability of many natural resources. To build these proposed new technologies, vital materials will be required in such tremendous amounts that routine social needs would be severely impacted.

 

 

Possibly after 2050, some new technology will be tested, safe and deployable at scale and reasonable costs to contribute to restoring our climate stability.

If you are a science person, this link for Fact 7 will take you to documentation links and expanded information on why new technologies can not save us in time and everything our governments must do to save humanity's future. At this point only our governments acting in concert have the power to save the future.

Additional Fact 2: Our governments have squandered six valuable decades in self-deception, not fixing our climate change and global heating emergency. In a section further below, you will discover the many painful reasons for our leader's and governments' gross, dangerous, and immoral failure. In the expanded section and links for this issue, you will discover why the global fossil fuel reduction numbers are consistently grossly underestimated and the climate consequence prediction dates are consistently overestimated. (This information is provided to the world by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the IPCC)

In addition to the decades of well-funded fossil fuel industry global disinformation and misinformation programs, our runaway global heating emergency has been made far more difficult to resolve because of the ongoing gross underestimation and politicization of climate science by the government-trusted Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations (the IPCC.) 

Yes, the physical cause of runaway global heating is indeed our global burning of fossil fuels. And yes, over the last six decades, the 28 trillion dollar-a-year fossil fuel industry and its lobbyists have subjected the world's politicians to the most potent disinformation and influence campaign in history. Their program was designed to prevent or limit regulations that would reduce global fossil fuel use. But, there is another government-supported organization that, because we have always trusted it and its climate summary reports, is also a dominant reason for our ongoing failures to mobilize the world to demand the end of fossil fuels. 

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is currently the most widely recognized and relied upon authority for climate change data. Every world government, major corporation, and NGO relies on these climate summary reports for planning their required fossil fuel reductions.

But there is a massive problem with the IPCC's climate summary reports. For decades, the IPCC has allowed its top administrators to underestimate, politicize and distort the underlying climate science and research of thousands of dedicated volunteer climate scientists.

This politicization of climate science has resulted in the public being given grossly underestimated climate change consequences, time frames, and required corrective actions. Furthermore, this gross underestimation has resulted in the general public being unaware of the seriousness and extreme urgency of the soon-arriving new levels of climate and global heating threat to their lives and businesses. 

But why would the IPCC's top administrators grossly underestimate the global heating threat and its remedies and do such a harmful thing to the future of humanity and the peoples of the world? 

 


The IPCC's top administrators did this because of the overwhelming:

a. political pressure from those corporations and nations with the most to gain by not reducing fossil fuel use, and

b. ongoing United Nations and IPCC funding denial threats from fossil fuel producing and fossil fuel-dependent countries.

The wealthiest fossil fuel producers, fossil fuel-dependent nations, and industries lobbied hard and long to "convince" these IPCC administrators they needed to "tone down" their climate facts to approve their "softer" climate summary reports. 

The political pressure to underestimate the climate problem and its solutions was orchestrated under the guise of toning down the climate facts in order not to create widespread public fear or panic. But, the real reason for the relentless political pressure on the IPCC's administrators to underestimate their climate summary reports was always to allow fossil fuel producers and fossil fuel-dependent nations and industries to continue doing "business as usual" and profiting. These nations and industries did not want an informed public to initiate a massive public outcry demanding the appropriate, huge, and immediate global fossil fuel reductions. 

Nothing would be worse for the worldwide fossil fuel empire than if the public knew just how dire, immediate, and deadly the climate and runaway global heating extinction emergency really was and how soon it would get far worse. 

Can you imagine what would happen if the worldwide general public understood what it meant to already be in an accelerating runaway global heating extinction emergency where about half of humanity unavoidably will be dead by mid-century? 

Why the IPCC's gross underestimation problem is important to you

1. If the world is grossly deceived about how bad the runaway global heating extinction emergency really is, it is unlikely the world will demand its governments and politicians make the needed changes to save humanity from it. 

2. The IPCC's gross underestimation issue presents an immense danger to the world's governments, intelligence agencies, national reserve banks, major corporations, media, risk assessment firms, hedge funds, investment bankers, and insurance companies. They run the world, and they all use the IPCC's grossly underestimated climate change and global heating summary reports for their future climate change planning and consequence strategies. This widespread use of this seriously unreliable climate prediction and remedial information means these entities and the rest of us are in for a massive and continuous series of painful and expensive climate change and global heating consequences, surprises, and shocks.

The IPCC has also organized or coordinated many international climate conferences. These climate conferences have produced scores of unenforceable and unverifiable international climate change reduction agreements. Unfortunately, these agreements have ALL failed to remove or even lessen the runaway global heating extinction threat.

The following graph shows the continuous failure of the IPCC and its climate conferences, as shown in the ever-rising carbon ppm amounts in the illustration below. 

 

 

If we are ever going to prevent or slow down the runaway global heating extinction emergency, we have to do something different. We will have to quickly:

1. get different, better qualified, and better-funded organizations to take over the IPCC climate science analysis and summary reporting responsibilities.

2. create some new form of global climate governance. This new global climate governance would also need to have the powers of enforcement and verification on all new international climate agreements.

Runaway global heating is a global problem. Therefore, its solution must also be globally enforceable. But, without a valid mechanism for global climate law-making, governance, and enforcement, each nation will fight for national advantage, stall the changes, or cheat on its fossil fuel reductions, so what's needed to fix runaway global heating never gets done.

The distorted and politicized IPCC climate summary reports have created a grossly false sense of climate safety and climate security in the general public. The general public still widely believes that climate change and global heating won't be that bad, its most harmful consequences are a long, long way off in the future, and they have no grasp of the soon-arriving, global heating-fueled processes of mass starvation and mass extinction. Most of the public has been lulled into climate inaction by the highly compromised IPCC.

As a good general IPCC climate information discounting operating principle... 

whenever you hear about an IPCC administrator-politicized climate change and global heating summary report, you would be wise to treat it as 20-40% worse than they are saying and arriving 20-40% sooner than they are saying. 

For example, the IPCC has said we could have as much as 6 feet of sea-level rise by 2100. However, using the fossil fuel industry interference discount, we are far more likely to get 7-8 feet sometime around 2070. 

Likewise, the IPCC has predicted a possible 1-2-foot sea-level rise by 2050, which actually means we will more likely experience three or more feet of sea-level rise by 2040. Many coastal communities think they can build massive sea walls and escape sea-level rise flooding. However, the previous IPCC sea-level estimates do not include the total sea level reaching their shores. (The IPCC sea-level rise estimates do not include those rare occurrences where the tidal surge from a major storm happens at the same time as the maximum tide phenomenon called a King tide, which often occurs around the full moon.)

 

 

Additional Fact 3: After we pass the carbon 425-450 ppm level, a huge looming climate change tipping point and a great global disruptor is called the Thwaites "doomsday glacier." It may collapse into the Antarctic Ocean as soon as 2025-2028 or in the following decades. It is the size of England and its collapse will initially raise global sea level by 2-3 feet and later up to 10 feet more over many decades. Because half the world's population lives along our sea coasts, the Thwaites glacier's collapse would trigger a level of unimaginable global chaos.

Always keep your eye on what currently is the biggest and most devastating global climate consequence and crossed climate tipping point that will occur soon. The sudden collapse of the Thwaites doomsday glacier will be the largest single climate catastrophe ever and quickly become a massive global disruptor of the stability of our economic, social, and political systems.

Billions of individuals will be immediately affected, and it will cause the greatest real estate crash in history for coastal properties.

If you are a science person, this link for Fact 3 will take you to documentation links and an expanded explanation.

 

IT IS ALMOST BEYOND THE TIME NEEDED TO ACT!

Please get the above uncensored climate facts widely distributed before it is too late for any of us!

This knowledge once widely shared will help illuminate the true urgency of our runaway global heating extinction emergency. Moreover, understanding the true urgency of the global heating emergency will eventually create the necessary public demand to get our politicians to begin a government-enforced global fossil fuel reduction plan that will work. 

The worst consequences runaway global heating extinction emergency will not be prevented or lessened unless:

1. You get active on the many scalable solutions in the Job One for Humanity Plan B. And, 

2. You do your part to help educate others about today's uncensored climate facts before it is too late. 

Unfortunately, too many climate and environmental organizations still have-not reviewed this page's climate facts and science. So, please also get their executives this information too. 

If you are a science person, this link will provide many more reasons for why we have failed to fix runaway global heating and why significantly discounting IPPC accuracy is wise and appropriate. If you are a science person, this link will take you to documentation links and expanded information about the IPCC's many reliability issues.

 

In Summary

Help fix runaway global heating the greatest disruptor and threat multiplier of the 21st century or suffer its accelerating consequences and potentially perish!

Humanity and its ancestors thrived for almost 1,000,000 years when the historical and interglacial high atmospheric carbon levels remained within the carbon level range of carbon 270-280 parts per million (ppm.) 

Many decades ago, climate scientists warned us that when we crossed the atmospheric carbon level of 350 ppm, humanity would be unsafe from horrible consequences and even extinction, and if we did cross the carbon350 ppm level that we were on the way to runaway global warming

Measuring the most dangerous greenhouse gases of atmospheric carbon [CO2,] methane [C4,] and nitrous dioxide [N2O] are the best ways to measure the increasing threat level of increasing global heating and increased global heating consequences. Therefore, the three greenhouse gas measurements shown together on the graph below are also one of the very best ways to predict future global heating and future temperature levels. 

 

The higher the amounts of carbon [CO2,] methane [C4,] and nitrous dioxide [N2O] in the atmosphere, the higher our future global temperatures will be and, our future global heating consequeces will the more severe, more frequent and occur at larger and larger scale. (In the illustration above, on the left vertical axis are atmospheric measuring levels for both carbon and nitrous dioxide in parts per million [ppm.] On the right vertical axis, you see the measuring level for atmospheric methane in parts per billion [ppb.])

Measuring the above three most dangerous rising atmospheric pollutants from fossil fuels is an even better way to determine if we have or are making honest progress in:

1. lowering global fossil fuel use,

2. fixing the runaway global heating extinction emergency or,

3. if we are failing or being successful at either or both. 

The illustration above also shows what happened when humanity began the fossil fuel-powered industrial revolution in the late 1700s to early 1800s. (Look where the graph lines rise suddenly.) Across the bottom of the illustration is the last 2,000+ years. The red, blue, and black lines moving from left to right across the illustration tell the painful story of human history and the fossil fuel pollution of our vital atmosphere.

It is not difficult to see from the three greenhouse gas illustration above, that humanity is in deep, deep trouble.

One of the world's most respected NASA climate scientists, James Hansen, said that if the atmospheric CO2 level reached and stayed at only the carbon 385 ppm level and was allowed to sit there for many years, this 385 carbon level alone could kick off a climate tipping point and feedback loop and "stacking" (domino) effect. He warned that this tipping point "stacking effect" would lead to an unstoppable chain reaction to higher and higher temperatures (known as runaway global warming.) 

 

 

So here is our runaway global heating tough love. Humanity thrived successfully for millennia when atmospheric carbon was at the 270 to 280 ppm-level. We went over the climate cliff in 2015 when we hit carbon 386 ppm level and we entered the first beginning stage of runaway global heating.

Within the next 2-3 years, we will pass the carbon 425 ppm level. When we pass carbon 425 ppm we are already too deep into the beginning stage of the runaway global warming process.

Since we have passed the carbon 386 ppm in 2015, we have already triggered the climate tipping point and feedback loop stacking and falling domino effect. We already have activated the crossing of ever more climate tipping points and feedback loops that will keep raising global heating until we are motivate by sufficient catastrophe to finally get close to the required, radical, and painful 2025 reductions in our global fossil fuel use. 

As of April of 2022, we were at a terrifying atmospheric level of carbon of 420 parts per million (ppm.)

From the preceding, one can see that this carbon 420 level is far, far beyond any reasonable and safe atmospheric carbon level and far into the tipping point "stacking" and falling domino effects of runaway global warming. At the carbon 420 ppm level, our atmospheric carbon level is about 155% greater than the humanity-thriving atmospheric carbon level of 270 ppm.

How much higher does this percentage of atmospheric carbon have to rise beyond the last known safe level of carbon 350 ppm, before we collectively realize we are in a apidly approaching mass to near-total extinction grave danger? 

In many ways, from the climate facts above, it is not difficult to see that in this runaway global heating extinction emergency, humanity is racing at 80 miles an hour toward a steep cliff and a massive drop off. To make things worse, the fog on this fossil fuel abuse highway is so dense that one can barely see the road 10 feet ahead. Moreover, the map humanity is using does not show exactly where this dangerous climate cliff even is. And finally, no single "person" is driving the climate car racing toward the cliff. 

It only looks like someone is driving the car and managing the global heating emergency This "no real single driver" factor is because the IPCC and the UN has no verification, enforcement, or punishment authority over any nation of the United Nations and and current disagreements between the many UN nations on what is necessary to fix the runaway global heating issue. To make matters worse, many of those UN nations are entirely or primarily dependent on continuing to produce and sell vast amounts fossil fuels for their own ongoing survival.

From the above, one can see that allowing an atmospheric carbon level of 425-450 ppm ever to be reached is humanity playing with fire in a room full of gas fumes. Humanity is betting the house (in this case the near-total extinction of humanity) that nonexistent or insufficient greenhouse gas remedial or removal "new technologies" will somehow save them at the last minute.

No matter how you look at it, our governments have put us at a completely immoral and insane global risk level. We are already living far, far beyond the highest possible rational level of collective extinction risk. In fact, humanity is already extinction unsafe.

 

 

 

The good news is if we are very, very fortunate, we may have another 2 to 8 years before crossing over the survival-critical 425-450 ppm threshold and into the next even worse level of runaway global warming where global heating and the extinction emergency goes out of our control for centuries to millenia. 

Our governments are at the last warning and opportunity to act! 

Our governments have already squandered six decades of climate change and global heating warnings. Over the last six decades, ineffective global heating actions by our governments have now ensured we have and will cross critical climate tipping points causing that about half of humanity will perish by mid-century.

Our governments get us close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, or we face near-total extinction.

If our governments successfully act on the runaway global heating emergency, much more of humanity will survive. And, if not, few individuals would ever want to exist in the over-heated world we would leave them. 

Enjoy your life each day and the relative remaining climate stability while we still have it. Fixing our current climate nightmare is far from guaranteed. If we miss our last-chance opportunity to prevent near-total extinction, we can at least hope to slow the climate nightmare down so more people can survive longer and more comfortably. 

"The runaway global heating emergency extinction risk level is so high that it is comparable to our governments playing Russian roulette with a gun where every revolver chamber has a bullet in it, and every bullet is an extinction-accelerating tipping point or amplifying climate feedback loop." Lawrence Wollersheim

 

So, the only remaining questions are:

What will you do to push your local, regional and national governments to meet the survival-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets? 

What will you do to save yourself, your loved ones and your business? 

How long before the actions causing global warming and climate change are recognized as serious crimes and prosecuted worldwide? 

How long before the largest fossil fuel polluters destroying the lives and stability of humanity will be prosecuted for their genocidal and biocidal crimes against humanity and all other life forms?

Your 3-step urgent call to personal action

Step 1: please help share these critical climate facts with everyone who also needs to know about the runaway global heating extinction emergency.

It is beyond grossly unfair and utterly wrong that the older generations have left this unconscionable climate legacy for Generations X, Y, and Z. Please pass these climate facts to Generations X, Y, and Z so that they start making the needed adaptations to extend their lives as long as possible. Of course, the older generations will also be affected. Still, Generations X, Y, Z (and A) will bear the shortest lifespans, the worst suffering, the biggest financial losses, and the most deaths. 

 

 

Please share these critical climate change and runaway global heating facts everywhere, especially with other worldwide climate and environmental organization executives! Then, maybe they will finally start calling climate change what it is, a runaway global heating extinction emergency. Perhaps, they will finally get serious about forcing our governments to get as close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets so we might yet be able to prevent near-total extinction.

"No program that claims to have a solution to climate change and global heating can not be called legitimate unless it is designed and prioritized around knowing when a global heating-driven near-total extinction event will probably occur, how it will occur, and what must be done when to prevent that outcome. The Job One for Humanity four-part program relentlessly follows this critical priority path and deadline policy." Lawrence Wollersheim

Step 4: Use our runaway global heating extinction threat "elevator pitch" 

Please use the following unsettling and very short global warming "elevator pitch" whenever possible to open conversations on the climate emergency. Then, when they ask you for more information to explain or justify the pitch, please give them the (JobOneforHumanity.org) website or get their email address and send them the link to the above climate facts which will explain each fact in detail and with documentation. 

The following elevator pitch should make new people so curious that they will want to read your email link (or go to our website) to discover how possible what you said could be. This new elevator speech is intentionally meant to disrupt the ginormous ignorance and complacency surrounding the painful and realfacts of our runaway global heating extinction emergency. 

Please do you part and try it out and watch the reactions. Even though a good portion of individuals will initially ignore further research, it plants a seed in their minds so that when they see the next wave of climate disasters unfolding, they will remember what you said to them. 

Here is the essential profound truth of our current runaway global heating emergency and our new runaway global heating emergency elevator pitch:

As the result of squandering 60 years of valid scientific climate warnings and our not resolving the climate and escalating global heating emergency, we have already locked ourselves into the beginning phase of runaway global warming and the unavoidable extinction of about half of humanity by mid-century. Mass human extinction is now unavoidable because we have already gone over the runaway global heating climate cliff.

Unfortunately, at our current carbon 420+ ppm level, we are making our extinction occur faster because we will cross even more climate tipping points and amplify climate feedback loops at faster rates. The good news is that we can still save much of the other half of humanity, but only if we get close to reaching the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets as soon as possible. The even better news is that when we eventually fix runaway global heating, there will be many positive benefits and possibly a Great Global Rebirth.
