What Will Finally Get Our Politicians to Act and Fix the Runaway Climate Change Emergency?

Last Updated 2.3.23

Our climate change think tank reviewed 60 years of the failed climate actions of the climate and environmental movements. This analysis has produced a critical strategy change to save humanity from climate change extinction before it is too late.

 

1. Prologue

Job One for Humanity, an independent non-profit climate change think tank. It has just completed an uncensored analysis of the last 60 years of climate change remedial failure by environmental and climate groups. 

This article acknowledges our politicians and governments' 60 years of failed actions to reverse the accelerating climate change emergency. It also recommends a more refined and direct strategic focus to resolve the climate change emergency. For over 60 years, our politicians and worldwide governments have utterly failed to manage the fossil fuel-caused accelerating climate change emergency, which could have prevented rising global heating and mass human extinction by about mid-century. 

In case you still believe your politicians and governments have been protecting you from the accelerating consequences of climate change caused by burning more fossil fuel and putting greenhouse gases from that fossil fuel burning into our atmosphere, here is a shocking graph showing all of the three major fossil fuel-related, global heating-causing greenhouse gases, carbon (CO2), methane (CH4) and Nitrous Oxide (N2O) over the last 2,000 years. The single best way to determine the success or failure of our politicians and government's global atmospheric fossil fuel reduction programs is to measure the total amount of fossil fuel burning byproducts (the greenhouse gases in our atmosphere) over many decades.

 

 

The exponentially accelerating graph above proves that our politicians and governments have completely failed to fix the accelerating global warming emergency, particularly over the last six decades, when greenhouse gases are rising exponentially! Unfortunately, the painful bill for this unconscionable long-term climate failure is due.

Worse yet, over the last three decades, no United Nations, IPCC climate conference (including COP 27), no politician, no government action, and no mass educational movement by any climate or environmental group has also done anything even remotely successful to slow down the rapid increase of carbon and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. 

This exponential atmospheric carbon increase again signals the severity of this political failure and that our climate change emergency is worsening faster than ever. (See the non-existent atmospheric carbon-reducing results from all previous UN climate change conferences below.)

 

 

The above painful climate change graphs also mean that what is currently being done in the world's climate and environmental education and activist movements, and by independent climate activists to fix the climate change emergency, is also not working! Therefore, climate change educators and activists cannot keep using the same strategies again in 2023 and beyond and expect different results. 

The climate and environmental movements have to radically and immediately shift their tactics to whatever will work within the extremely short time we have left to slow runaway global heating, or we will not only face a mass and unavoidable extinction by mid-century, but we will also face near-total extinction by 2070-2089. (We only have from 2025 to 2031 (if we are fortunate) to make the correct required global fossil fuel reductions as described here.)

Our climate change think tank's analysis has produced a critical strategy update to save humanity from climate change extinction. Here are the two remaining and practical ways that could work to save humanity from near-total extinction in the little time we may have left to do so (2025-2031.)

One is direct, the other less direct but still potentially workable:

1. Engage in continuous, direct physical protest of our politicians everywhere they go until they act to fix the climate. Our politicians will need to create, vote in, and enforce all of the new climate laws required to successfully get close to the legitimate 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets needed to save us in time from near-total extinction. (Those laws and actions are described in links further down this page.)

2. Less directly, get to our politicians through educating and protesting (when needed) the world's billionaires, wealthiest individuals, and corporate executives. Get them to use their powerful influence on our politicians. (After you review this article, we have provided a link at the end with many tools and tips for individuals who can directly influence billionaires to convince politicians to act.)

If possible, do both for maximum effectiveness. We have so little time left before the climate goes out of our control. The The accelerating climate change extinction emergency demands we abandon all previous failed strategies and adapt to the two new more-effective strategies (below) to protect our futures and the futures of generations X, Y, Z, and A. 

The article below also contains many detailed tools and tips for individuals who want to focus on item one above and immediately begin to directly influence their local, regional, state, and national politicians to act. At the bottom of this article, you will find information and a link to the second less direct strategy that also has a high probability of working in the time we have left to reach and influence our politicians.

At the end of this article are additional documentation links that will cover your critical questions about the strategies below. Please feel free to comment, criticize, and offer more effective strategy suggestions that could work to enact the global fossil fuel reduction requirements found on this page within the remaining 3 to 8-year time window humanity now has left to prevent our near-total to total extinction.

2. The accelerating climate change extinction emergency and the tiny amount of time we have left to save humanity demands we focus only on effective climate change strategies. Here's Why!

Here is our current climate change emergency, plain and simple!

We are in phase one of a runaway global heating extinction emergency and running out of time. Because we have squandered six decades in government inaction or ineffective actions, half of humanity will unavoidably die by mid-century. 

All we have left to do now is what is required of us to prevent a global heating-driven near-total extinction event! If we are very fortunate, we have only 3-8 years (2025-2031) to make radical global fossil fuel usage reductions to maintain control of our global heating future and prevent the even worse near-total extinction. (If you still have doubts that this last 3-8 year deadline is our last window of opportunity, click here.

In a state of genuine emergency, one has little time left to act and fix the crisis. Therefore, we must now operate at levels of genuine urgency. This now means direct, peaceful, and legal protests of our politicians commensurate in intensity with the global climate change-driven extinction dangers we face. We must do this only to ensure that the climate change extinction emergency and its many related consequences will be slowed and resolved before we enter the second and next phase of irreversible runaway global heating sometime between 2025 and 2031.

We can still prevent near-total human extinctionbut only if we act immediately and get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. If we fail to act in time, there is no collective or individual escape for anyone, even billionaires and the world's wealthiest individuals.

The following are the headings in this article:

 

3. The Primary Strategy and Reason for Directly Protesting the World's Politicians

It is only 90 seconds before humanity's midnight on the climate change doomsday clock. It is our last chance to make the massive survival-critical global fossil fuel reductions that must be made by 2025 (or 2031 if we are fortunate) to prevent near-total human extinction as soon as 2070-2080.


 

No time is left for any indirect strategies to fix the climate emergency. We have no more time for strategies that produce some detectable level of progress but will never get us to the honest remedial climate change critical path deadlines we must meet to survive. 

Today, worldwide environmental and climate movements must face their collective climate change remedial failures. While we still have a small window of time left to control our climate futures, these organizations must refocus their efforts upon ONLY direct influence strategies that will:

a. get to our politicians on a real and personal level, and 

b. get them to enact and enforce the correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets before we are out of time. (Click here to see everything our politicians must do to get close to the required 2025 global fossil fuel reductions.)

There is no rational hope remaining that humanity can be protected from a climate change-driven near-total-to-total extinction process unless we get our politicians to act correctly and immediately! If anyone tells you otherwise, they either do not understand climate change science and the current climate change condition, or they have some other hidden agenda.

The two direct-action politician protest strategies discussed in this article offer a timely new way forward. They are about making your voice known directly to your local, regional, and national politicians.

This direct action is required because they are the ones who control our governments and who are protecting global warming-causing actions or engaging in global warming-remedial inaction. You will do this by going wherever they go and protest at the entrance and exit at that location when they arrive and leave.

The world's politicians have not listened to many past warnings and the loud, repeated warnings of respected climate scientists and climate educators for over 60 years. At this point, they can no longer claim climate change ignorance when almost every day, they too see more severe, frequent, and larger-scale climate change catastrophes worldwide in their global newsfeeds.

Because of the scale and rapid approach of the accelerating climate change extinction danger, it is NOW time to legally, ethically, and directly protest to our politicians to protect the future of humanity and all living things. Nothing at this 11th hour will be more effective than directly and continuously protesting, blaming, and shaming your politician's climate ignorance, inaction, or disclosed or undisclosed conflicts of interest. But, to be successful, worldwide climate and environmental organizations (and individual climate activists) must do this worldwide creatively, thoughtfully, and persistently.

Organizations and individual climate activists worldwide must immediately begin peacefully protesting their local, regional, and national politicians at their offices, homes, country clubs, golf courses, laundry, favorite restaurants, gymnasiums, grocery stores, on their vacations, and wherever else they go. Protest them even when picking up their children from their schools. (Further down this article, we provide more specific protest tips and ideas for protesting success and protest signs.)

Do not be angry. Just be persistent, and create jaw-dropping protest signs. Be like Greta Thunberg, the humble teen who sat quietly day after day in the nordic cold near her school with her stop climate change protest signs. You will need to make your creative climate protest signs tell the story of these politicians' unique ignorance, incompetence, or conflicts of interest on the greatest threat, global disrupter, and threat multiplier of the 21st century.

Slowly make your protests make sure the world's politicians clearly understand the unthinkable and snowballing effects of climate change primary and secondary consequences. Make sure they know our accelerating climate change emergency is the ultimate no-win, no-escape "game" for them, their children, their assets, and their legacies. 

Wherever these politicians go day or night, persistently, patiently, and legally protest and publicly shame and blame them for their political actions or inactions. Do this persistently in front of their families, peers, friends, neighbors, business or service associates, strangers, and relatives. Do so without hesitation or relief until they finally get the message that if they do not act immediately to radically reduce local, state, national, and global fossil fuel use to meet these legitimate targets, their inaction or actions that harm or delay fixing climate change will:

a. be the primary cause of the climate-driven eventual suffering and deaths of their loved ones --- not to mention most of the rest of humanity.

b. They will eventually be held personally, legally, and financially responsible for the climate change-related damage their inaction or ineffective action causes. They will be held liable personally because only their gross negligence and lack of proper due diligence in investigating the real dangers of the climate change emergency and its known primary and secondary consequences could allow such harm to befall the public. 

c. They will eventually be voted out of office as their constituents experience climate change consequences becoming more severe, frequent, and covering larger and larger areas. Their constituents will feel betrayed and angry that their politicians did not do their sworn political duty and fulfill their oaths concerning such well-documented and known climate change harms and consequences. And,

Make sure they understand that you know that they are the only ones with the direct legal power to make our governments enact and enforce the necessary local, regional, national, and global fossil fuel reductions to reach the 2025 survival-critical targets in time to make any real difference and save us from going extinct. 

We only have from 2025-2031 to prevent our near-total extinction and make the massive global fossil fuel use reductions required. Our politicians must also be made to realize the painful truth that:

a. Their 60 years of inaction have already doomed half of humanity to unimaginable suffering and death by mid-century. 

b. They have no time to delay immediate, effective action to get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. 

c. If they fail to act immediately, they will also doom humanity to a climate change-driven near-total extinction by 2070-2080 and possibly total extinction if they do nothing or do "too little too late" once again.

At some point, those individuals who witness your continuous protests, whether they be peers, family, friends, neighbors, business or service associates, strangers, children, or relatives, will also most likely begin to ask the politician being protested what is going on and why. Some individuals close to the daily life of those politicians already know the climate change emergency is real and has to be fixed soon, or everyone is in dire peril, and most of us will die. 

Some individuals seeing this highly-public and never-ending shaming and blaming will also begin to try to directly influence that politician to reconsider their positions on climate change and finally do something compelling to fix it before it is too late. Eventually, under continuous pressure, most politicians will change sides because of the accumulating personal and professional costs of not changing positions. Not supporting the required actions to save humanity from extinction at every level will become too much to bear, and eventually, these politicians will come to understand their own severe personal climate change risks.

Do not underestimate the power of this continuous peaceful public shaming, blaming, and protest in front of those closest to the politician's personal daily life. Unfortunately, current politicians who fail to face the climate change extinction emergency and its horrendous consequences leave us with no other effective remedial alternative with the short time we have left to do so much globally.

Do not hesitate to publicly blame and shame any politician who has done their climate change homework so poorly that they still believe the extensive global fossil fuel industry-funded climate change disinformation campaigns concerning:

a. "the correct" global fossil fuel reduction targets,

b. their ridiculous "fossil fuel business as usual" climate change "solutions" and,

c. what they say are the real climate change consequence timeframes and deadlines!

Likewise, never hesitate to publicly blame and shame any politician who is incompetent or has any hidden or disclosed conflicts of interest preventing or keeping them from passing the correct and honest climate change legislation that will save the lives of billions of people.

 

 

4. Critical Additional Information and Tips for Successfully Protesting Politicians

Here are critical tips for how to directly protest politicians:

1. Treat yourself as the bonified climate activist and climate change leader you have been waiting for! Unfortunately, the foremost climate leaders of the past are mostly burned out, retired, have been compromised by fossil fuel money, or have lost their way and are pushing indirect or ill-informed climate remedial strategies that have no hope of preventing the near-total extinction of humanity in the little time we have left to do so. 

Even if you are not affiliated with any climate or environmental educational organization, you still must act independently to protest politicians not protecting you from imminent climate change catastrophe. Self-organize your protest actions and gather friends to help support them. Divide the protesting work so the politician always faces continuous protests. 

Remember that "you never need anyone else's permission to do good work in the world." So please do not wait for any other person or organization to start protesting in your area. Get started now, or it will be too late for us all.

If you are in generations X, Y, or Z, the protest burden is even heavier on you to start protesting immediately. Let's face the painful climate facts. Older generations and the baby boomers have done little and are still doing little. 

Generations X, Y, or Z, along with generation A (those born from 2010-2025), will suffer the longest and most, financially and physically, before the climate change emergency eventually kills most of them off. Never forget that the younger generations directly and relentlessly protesting your politicians are humanity's and your last practical hope for survival and the future. If generations X, Y, and Z do not come together and protest against their local, regional, and especially national politicians, there will not be enough global pressure on the world's politicians to succeed. As a result, we will not be able to compel our politicians to take the required remedial climate change actions and make the necessary global fossil fuel reductions in time to save us from a climate change-driven near-total extinction to total extinction process. 

With or without the support of existing local, regional, or national climate or environmental education organizations, generation X, Y, or Z members must self-organize these politician protests, create the meetups, and support groups that will keep them going until their politicians change their climate positions and actions. The climate change fate for the future of humanity squarely now rests upon the shoulders of generations X, Y, and Z doing everything legally allowable to ensure their politicians act in time.

 

 

2. Before publicly criticizing, shaming, or blaming any politician, always get them and their staff the most up-to-date educational materials on the runaway global heating extinction emergency (like those found on the JobOneforHumanity.org website.) Give them one last benefit of the doubt and a chance to learn what you already know even though, as responsible politicians, they should have researched and known this climate information long ago. 

Also, be aware that many politicians already know the truth about how bad the climate change extinction emergency actually is. They have a high enough security clearance to have been briefed by their national intelligence agencies about the coming global climate nightmare. Surprisingly, they still do not act to effectively stop it. This inaction is partly because they misinterpret the public's will, and the politicians fear losing their well-paying positions and pensions more than all else. (For more on this political reason why properly climate-informed politicians still do not act, see the political theory of the Overton Window.) 

Furthermore, many politicians, even those who appear to be in favor of reducing global fossil fuel use, have been deceived about our current climate change condition and its legitimate solutions by the well-financed misinformation and disinformation campaigns of the global fossil fuel industry. The comprehensive and decades-long misinformation and disinformation campaigns of the 28 trillion dollars a year global fossil fuel industry have not just blinded our politicians. They have also adversely affected the media's coverage of the rapidly rising climate change threats. Worse yet, the lobbyists of the fossil fuel industry have also polluted and corrupted the accuracy of the United Nations' periodic climate change summary reports published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). 

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was once widely believed to be the world's leading authority on climate change and an "honest broker" of climate science. Unfortunately, it has also become another co-opted tool for fossil fuel industry climate disinformation. (Please click here to learn more about why the IPCC can no longer be trusted. Be sure also to read the enlightening sub-menu links off the main link.)  

After the politicians and their staffs have been provided current climate information, correct fossil fuel reduction targets, and other accurate climate solution information (like found on the JobOneforHumanity.org website) and they still do not stop their actions or inaction harmful to resolving the climate change extinction emergency or they continue to support incorrect "too little too late" fossil fuel industry-friendly fossil fuel global reduction targets, then persistently begin to criticize, shame and blame them publicly. 

At the same time, also make it widely known to the media that you did provide that politician and their staff with the correct climate change information. This extra educational step will strengthen your public protesting position because the politician and their staff will no longer be able to claim ignorance of climate change. You will also be viewed as fair-handed when you educate first and then criticize, blame, and shame these politicians for their continuing ignorance, incompetence, or conflicts of interest. 

3. Never forget that we are all compelled to peacefully protest our politicians at this difficult, almost too-late point. We protest now also because the last remaining window of opportunity is so small (we have only until 2025 to 2031 to prevent a near-total extinction event from occurring around 2070-2080.) We also protest because we are just about to enter the beginning of a second, soon-to-be irreversible phase of runaway global heating. 

We must also become protestors of every politician who diminishes or unintentionally or intentionally presents climate illusions or false, misleading, or significantly underestimated climate change information about the real dangers and deadlines of the extinction emergency we all now face. 

Do this because any politician presenting climate illusions, delusions, false, misleading, diminishing, or significantly underestimated climate change information about the facts, dangers, and deadlines of our climate change extinction emergency is actively and consciously hiding the real climate change risks and urgency from society. Today's politicians are doing this in many ways:

a. by making society think that the nation and the world is making the correct deadlines and the required progress to avert climate change catastrophe and extinction when we are clearly not making progress. Or,

b. by making society think that the climate emergency is currently being correctly solved when that is also false.

Both assumptions are dangerous and incorrect because, when they occur, society thinks things are safe or that adequate climate change progress is being made. Then society does little to demand its politicians resolve the emergency. 

Politicians that intentionally or unintentionally create illusions about current climate change reduction progress or the correct fossil fuel targets and deadlines we must meet --- are the most dangerous! Because of those climate change illusions, a nation, group, or individual believing those illusions may even try to solve the wrong problem or enact the wrong solutions without ever realizing they are on the wrong course. 

4. For 60 years, our politicians and governments have allowed the primary and secondary climate change consequences to escalate to the point where these consequences have or will soon reach the level where the extinction of about half of humanity by mid-century is unavoidable. That is a moral and human evil far beyond mere climate change ignorance or incompetence. 

An even worse human evil is for our politicians and governments to continue to fail to resolve the climate change extinction emergency, subjecting billions of humanity to near-total extinction and possibly total extinction.

This is not only a genocidal evil for humanity but also a biocidal evil that will kill off much of earth's biological life. Worse yet, many politicians and individuals high in government positions believe that no matter what happens to the rest of us, somehow their privileged position will protect them, their families, and their assets from the whirlwind of climate chaos that is coming. This despicable and climate-consequence irrational belief is also a great moral evil because current politicians are not more worthy of survival than any other citizen, particularly when they were the individuals who could've averted the very emergency causing mass extinction and chaos.

Because of this unprecedented and historic threat to human existence and biological life and ultimate evil, do not hesitate to publicly call out politicians at every opportunity for allowing this unconscionable ultimate evil to continue to unfold. 

5. Never forget that if these politicians do not do their sworn duty to protect us from widely-known and severe climate change harms and they do not act to save us from the escalating climate change nightmare, the suffering, financial loss, and death, that they will cause to billions of people worldwide will force any angry survivors to put them on trial. They will be put on trial for their omissions or other actions that created or contributed to what will eventually be the largest human extermination in history and the destruction of biological life. These traumatized and wildly angry survivors will quickly convict these politicians of crimes against humanity and crimes against future generations and send them to a hard labor prison for the rest of their lives. In addition, all these politicians' assets, trusts, foundations, and businesses will also be seized and given to their victims. Today's calcitrant politicians who fall into this dead-ender category will become infamous in history and pariahs while alive.

 

        

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

6. When you protest against any politician, always notify the appropriate local, regional, and national media when and where you will be protesting that politician. Trust that the media will give your clever, continuous, and highly controversial (in their eyes) politician protests lots of repeated coverage as you evolve and refine your protests. The media knows politicians are some of the least-trusted and most disliked individuals on earth. They also understand that the media-viewing public will be enthralled by how these politicians cannot escape your continuous, peaceful, and creative protesting wherever they go. 

The media-viewing public will also marvel at watching how, one by one, these ignorant, incompetent, or conflict-of-interest-ridden remaining politicians will eventually take new climate change-resolution favorable actions. (These new positions will lead them to vote for everything our governments must do to get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets before it is too late. To see all that our government must now do because of their 60 years of climate change inaction, click here.)

7. Because of our current climate change emergency, climate change activists publicly shame, blame, and protest every politician who supports or allows the fossil fuel industry's highly profitable "business as usual" operations and tactics. Wherever these protests occur, sometimes climate protestors will unintentionally create discomfort, disruption, or inconvenience for others not directly involved in the protest action or benefiting from the fossil fuel industry polluting our atmosphere and killing the future of humanity. 

Unfortunately, these unintentional smaller-scale discomforts, disruptions, and inconveniences may be unavoidable. Therefore, you will need to accept that unintended side effects will sometimes occur at your protests. 

The minor distress, disruption, or inconvenience that others may go through when viewing or passing by your protests against resistant politicians is insignificant to the financial and physical suffering and death these passing viewers and billions of others will suffer later if the politicians do not act and the fossil fuel industry is allowed to continue with "business as usual."  

We therefore strongly recommend you do your public shaming and blaming politician protests in a way that does not disrupt the usual daily activities of regular citizens passing through the protest just trying to get to their jobs, homes, etc. There are several good reasons for this do not disrupt the activities of regular citizens' guidance:

1. Normal citizens almost always have no direct influence over the politicians they may see you protesting.

2. It often only makes some of them very mad at you because they do not understand the urgency of the climate change emergency.

3. Public disruption was an older, ineffective and indirect climate protest strategy that will yield more problems than it is worth, particularly when we have so little time left for effective, direct protest actions.

So please plan your protests not to disrupt anyone who is not working for, serving, or directly knows and could influence this politician.  

8. To be a successful protestor, it is vital to understand the difference between prioritized, effective climate change remedial actions that meet "never miss" critical extinction prevention deadlines and climate change remedial progress. Many good things are being done by climate and environmental groups worldwide that can and should be honored as incremental climate change progress. But, unfortunately, we have so little time left to save ourselves from near-total extinction; we must now focus only on those prioritized, effective climate change remedial actions that will successfully get what is required done and meet critical extinction-prevention deadlines. 

As you would suspect, effective, correctly prioritized climate change remedial actions and deadlines are also the most difficult to complete and meet. To create a prioritized climate change remedial action plan, one must first know the most critical climate change deadlines and where the climate change emergency goes beyond humanity's meaningful control. Unfortunately, many climate activists and climate and environmental organizations still do not know where these critical survival deadlines are. 

Consequently, they develop climate change remedial programs and actions that do not fit the actual urgency for the survival-critical deadlines of this extinction emergency. Fortunately, the correct survival-critical climate change deadlines are known and available here. This means everyone can quickly correct this ultimate current barrier to climate change remedial success. (Please see the following information for the correct survival-critical climate change deadlines.)

If climate and environmental organizations do not shift their climate tactics away from the many feel-good, off-critical path actions that do produce some level of discernable climate change remedial progress, which will not humanity us in time, we are in very deep climate trouble. Therefore, if you see any climate and environmental organizations or climate activists executing feel-good, off-critical path climate progress, or minor climate progress steps, it is necessary to educate them about their "too little, far too late" climate change activities. Of course, this applies even more so to politicians pushing incremental or gradual progress, but not the critical path, deadline-driven actions that will prevent humanity's near-total to total extinction.

We do not have the luxury with so little time remaining (2025-2031) to soothe or delude ourselves with bits "feel good" off-deadline and off-critical path discernable climate "progress." Instead, we must focus entirely on the effective prioritized, deadline-driven actions that can and will save as much of humanity as possible.

9. If you are not already a member of a climate or environmental organization, recruit or find a group of similarly committed local individuals to help ensure that no matter where this politician goes day or night, no matter what they do, there is always one or more protestors with powerful, clever, and creative protest signs blaming, shaming or telling them about humanity's climate change extinction emergencys' painful facts. 

Do this until they act. Wherever you do this, you will also be educating any public or other individuals who will witness your protest. Be sure your protest team covers all entrances and exits so the politician cannot escape your protests. The media will also love the coverage of politicians trying to sneak in and out of places, being caught, and still being protested.

 

 

10. Always prioritize which politicians to protest first by which ones are doing the most climate harm. Do not be discouraged by the fact that the fossil fuel industry lobbyist disinformation has so thoroughly duped so many non-high-security clearance politicians. On the other hand, do not neglect to protest any politician still forwarding "feel good," or "too little, far too late" climate change programs like the Green New Deal.

11. When a politician redeems themselves and starts taking real climate change remedial actions that will save the other half of humanity, ensure they get lots of media recognition and attention for their new actions.

12. There is no longer enough time to continue using indirect protests, like generalized mass protests walking the streets, to get politicians and governments to enforce the required 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. In the little time we have left, our protesting must be wholly focused upon those with the power to do what is necessary. 

Protesters can no longer try to "lead the climate emergency dog" by "wagging" its tail or targeting its hindquarters. Instead, protesters must go directly at the "head" of the climate emergency "dog" and, from there, direct it to where it must go. (Please see this link for more about the failure of generalized mass protests and why they are now ineffective for the current climate emergency.)

13. Do not protest politicians in front of their children under 13 unless it is evident that the politician is intentionally using their under 13 children to shield themselves from your continual protests. Children under 13 deserve to have a child's future and not be confronted with such a severe and mature adult matter.

14. If you run into long-term, continually resistant politicians, as a last and indirect protest to their failed climate change policies, consider replacing them through the election process with yourself or someone like yourself. But, never rely on this "vote them out" for their policies as an essential or direct climate strategy because it will usually take far too long to replace this politician with little time we have left. 

15. When any politician, organization, or individual is endangering the lives of billions of people because of their climate change ignorance, incompetence, or self-serving conflicts of interest, it creates an obligation in those who know about this to protest and act to prevent a crime against humanity of such unprecedented magnitude. 

An example will illustrate how different levels of threat scale and severity will make some public protest actions obligatory. For instance, if an unjust war using conventional weapons will break out between two small regional countries and cause many people to die, and you knew about it ahead of time, this would call for necessary public protests. But, if you knew that a global thermonuclear war would likely soon occur between these two nations and would escalate to kill almost all of humanity, you would then be obliged to publicly protest and do everything you could to the best of your abilities to prevent such an irreversible catastrophe from occurring. 

Climate protest and activism become obligatory when the known scale of probable climate damage and consequences is so large and severe that one must protest the activities once they are understood. Hopefully, this helps you understand why the scale and severity of damage determine the difference between what is necessary and what is obligatory. You should also understand why the climate change extinction emergency and anything that speeds it up or prevents us from seeing it honestly or resolving it requires the obligatory public protesting of our politicians until they fix this nightmare.

16. Your knowledge of the above critical climate change issues and deadlines and the direct climate change politician protest strategy implies an obligation for YOU to take personal responsibility for helping to distribute the link to this article to:

a. The senior management of global environmental groups like Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Earth Island Institute, Rainforest Action Network, Friends of the Earth, Global Footprint Network, and the World Wildlife Fund.

b. The senior management of worldwide climate change groups like Greta Thunberg's groups, Extinction Rebellion, 350.org, Climate Foundation, Climate Reality Project, Fridays for the future, and the Sunrise Movement.

c. Independent climate activists, 

d. All internet climate change newsgroups worldwide, like Facebook, Reddit, and Google Groups. And,  

e. Your networks of friends and associates so they too can get active to help reverse the climate change extinction emergency.

17. The strategy discussed above will work if these direct politician protests:

a. get the correct climate change emergency facts to the politicians (and their staff.) Then creatively and continually push them to understand these uncensored and non-politized facts. At some point, you will get the politicians to stop believing climate change information coming from fossil fuel disinformation campaigns and well-financed fossil fuel industry lobbyists who are also making sure these politicians' reelection campaigns are well-funded by the fossil fuel industry. 

b. are constantly in the politician's faces 24 hours a day, seven days a week, no matter where they go or what they do.

c. are creative and draw in regular media coverage with their cleverness and the power of the controversy.

d. are adaptive and evolve continually as the politician and his team try to avoid your protests. Think of it as a chess match and a game you must win!

 

 

e. are worldwide.

f. encourage many new individuals to come out and begin new and creative direct protests. Ideally, these direct politician protests would evolve into a worldwide friendly competition between all politician protestors. They would compete (and share) who has come up with the most effective protests, best protest signs, most and best media coverage, and who had created the most politicians changing their positions or beginning to do what is required to save us as described on this page.

Never doubt that the greatest majority of politicians (and their staff) will eventually read the uncensored climate facts and change their positions mainly to save themselves in their families. But wouldn't you do the same if you knew what was coming in the next wave of accelerating primary and secondary climate change consequences and how little time is left before the worst of them arrive?

The only remaining question is, will enough individuals and organizations worldwide use the above strategy in time to get our politicians to prevent accelerating climate change from reaching the second phase of irreversible runaway global heating sometime between 2025-2038?

 

 

5. Ideas for Creative Politician Protest Posters

Be creative. Be bluntly honest.

Make your signs illuminate shame and blame upon the politicians for their climate ignorance, incompetence, selfishness, or the pure evil of their hidden conflicts of interest. Make signs that make the people who know, serve, work for, are associated with, are closest to, or regularly see this politician question what kind of human being and politician this person really is.

Questions on signs can be powerful. Publicly questioning a politician's competency, issue ignorance, or hidden conflicts of interest is very difficult for the politician to ignore. 

Be like Greta Thunberg. Be patient, persistent, and peaceful. Create attention-grabbing protest signs for those who will witness them and, more importantly, for media coverage. Wear costumes or make the protest an art project if you think it will improve your influence with the politician and get more media coverage.

Never forget that the media loves a creative show and especially loves controversy surrounding politicians' ignorance, incompetence, or hidden conflicts of interest. Remember, politicians are among the least respected and least liked individuals of all professions. Media audiences love to watch unethical, incompetent, or ignorant politicians fall from grace.

Make powerful signs like:

a. Your climate action has condemned about half of humanity to death by mid-century. 

b. We are out of time; if you (politician's name) do not act on the climate today, humanity will experience near-total extinction by 2070-2080.

c. (Politician's name), you WILL be held personally and legally responsible for your gross negligence and lack of proper due diligence for failing to prevent the climate change extinction emergency.

d. (Politician's name) Are you ignorant, incompetent, or have hidden conflicts of interest regarding the climate change emergency?

e. (Politician's name), your climate change ignorance, incompetence, or hidden conflicts of interest will cause the suffering and deaths of your children and relatives if you do not act now.

f. Politicians like (politician's name) have failed to protect us for 60 years from the known dangers of the accelerating climate change extinction emergency.

g. You (politician's name) will be held personally responsible for killing off more than half of humanity if you do not act now. 

h. You (politician's name) will be held personally responsible for failing to prevent climate change-driven chaos in our economic system. 

i. You (politician's name) are destroying the stability and future of our nation because of your climate ignorance, incompetence, or hidden conflicts of interest.

j. You (politician's name) are killing the future and the world's children because of your climate ignorance, incompetence, or hidden conflicts of interest.

k. Your (politician's name) climate change action delays have condemned half of humanity to death by 2050. That is pure and ultimate EVIL.

L. How will (politician's name) prepare the world for billions of climate migrants, financial collapses, and climate wars due to your climate change inaction?

m. Why do you (politician's name) believe that your privileged position will protect your family and assets from the coming climate chaos and catastrophes?

n. (Politician's name) your climate change inaction and incompetency will destroy the wealth of our nation and the world. 

o. (Politician's name) it is pure and ultimate evil to kill billions of people by failing to act to stop accelerating climate change.

p. (Politician's name) allowing a climate change-driven mass human extinction is the same as causing it.

q. (Politician's name) allowing a massive climate change-driven human extinction is a crime against humanity and future generations.

r. (Politician's name) you will be convicted for crimes against humanity and crimes against future generations for your climate change legislative omissions and incompetence.

s. (Politician's name) to not fix the climate change extinction emergency is pure and ultimate evil.

6. A Secondary Politician Protest Strategy for Using the Influence of Billionaires to Get Our Politicians to Act

 

 

In addition to direct individual or organizational politician protest, we also need to simultaneously near-directly influence our politicians through engaging (or protesting as required) the billionaires, the world's 1% wealthiest individuals, and corporate executives to get them to use their powerful influence directly on our politicians. To do this, we must also convince the world's wealthiest individuals what will happen to them if we do not come close to the 2025 targets. 

To do this, we have to make sure the world's wealthiest individuals, and corporate executives, also clearly understand the unthinkable, climate change primary and secondary consequences, and how the climate change extinction emergency is the ultimate no-win/no-escape game for them, their children, their assets, and their legacies. If we also reach the politicians through that 1% of wealthy individuals and executives that directly influence and control them with the accelerating climate change no-win/no-escape message, we expand our chances to be successful! 

If you also want to protest the world's wealthiest individuals to do their civic climate change duty using similar protest tactics to those listed above when required, click here for all the details you will need.

7. Conclusion

No one, whether a politician or a "well-intended" organization or individual, EVER has the right to directly endanger the lives of billions of people because of their climate change ignorance, incompetence, or self-serving conflicts of interest. Laws will be changed grossly negligent politicians who failed to do proper climate change due diligence will be prosecuted in the post-climate change catastrophe future for both their crimes against humanity and their crimes against future generations. They will finally be held personally responsible for their climate change ommissions, incompetence, conflicts of interest, and commissions that allowed the many climate change-driven horrors to occur.

There is no time left for any indirect methods for getting the climate change extinction emergency under control that do not meet critical deadlines. Protests must now focus on ONLY actions that directly confront our politicians.

The $28 trillion dollar-a-year fossil fuel industry has the world's highest-paid, most competent lobbyists. But these lobbyists are few, and we are many. From this day forward, consider yourself a climate activist/lobbyist working for the benefit of humanity, being paid the greatest treasure anyone could ever be paid. Your pay and reward will be a healthy and long life and a future free from extreme suffering, unbearable financial loss, and the death of almost everyone and everything you know and love. 

Do not let the greatest disruptor, threat multiplier, and amplifier of the 21st century (our accelerating climate change extinction emergency) go out of the tiny remaining window of our meaningful control. 

Climate is the ultimate personal context. It conditions in qualifies all things taking place within it. If it goes bad, so too goes our lives, businesses, and future.

Unfortunately, sixty years of climate inaction and ineffective actions by our politicians and governments have already condemned humanity to an unavoidable extinction of about half of us by mid-century.

Do not let the insufficient protesting of our worldwide politicians allow a still avoidable near-total or even total human extinction to occur because of rapidly accelerating primary and secondary climate change-driven consequences.

Never forget that:

a. We still have a small amount of time and a narrowing window of opportunity to literally save the lives of billions of people who can still be saved. And,

b. In fixing our climate change extinction emergency, we will experience many benefits and opportunities that will equal or become greater than the challenge we all now face. Moreover, once we have fixed the climate change extinction emergency, there is also the possibility of a great global rebirth and a new golden age.

We are truly doomed if collectively, we fail to get our worldwide politicians to understand the extinction danger and that they and their families are also doomed by the accelerating climate change consequences. They need to learn that no one will get a climate change catastrophe pass because of their position, wealth, or preparations. 

All of the above boils down to one thing. All generations must immediately begin directly protesting their politicians to get them to act on the climate change extinction emergency. It is the only way to keep yourself and your children alive as long as possible and not suffer the horrific climate change consequences described on this page.

8. Important Documentation and Potential Question Links

Here is additional information to answer the most common questions people ask about the nature of the climate change extinction emergency and why we need the politician protest policy described above:

1. Click here if you do not believe that it is possible that half of humanity will be dead by mid-century or that near-total extinction by around 2070 - 2080 is an exaggeration and not likely.

2. Click here to learn about the required and correct 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. Fossil fuel industry disinformation programs have seeped into the media and our governments. They have people believing fossil fuel reduction targets that will eventually kill them and their children and destroy their businesses.

4. Click here to understand the climate change-driven consequences and processes of mass, near-total, and total human extinction.

5. If you want to know more about why we have only until 2025-2031 to make the life-critical global fossil fuel reductions, also learn about the climate system's many inertia and momentum factors here.

6. This link will take you to over two dozen reasons relating to how challenging the climate change problem is to resolve, particularly if you do not have the world's politicians acting and enforcing the laws needed to fix it. 

8. Even near-total extinction is not the worst consequence humanity faces if we do not immediately reduce global fossil fuel use to get close to the 2025 global targets. If humanity does allow itself to get close to near-total extinction, within just a few decades after that, humanity will lose much of the knowledge and skills it will need to build and repair the machines that create our critical products and infrastructure. It will also lose the knowledge and skills required to obtain the natural resources necessary to maintain daily life and even for alternative energy sources. Without these things, within just a few decades, humanity will rapidly enter into a painful new Dark Age of ignorance, chaos, and suffering that could last for centuries.

9. The Job One for Humanity climate change think tank has adapted to the above-updated climate change strategy of the direct protest of worldwide politicians because it is indispensable and because:

a. We are in a global warming extinction emergency, and we will experience many unavoidable and severe global warming consequences

b. We most likely can not avoid the extinction of much of humanity by mid-century (because of our politicians and governments' decades of delays in acting to resolve this emergency.
