What will it take inn 2020 to get our governments to end the global warming-caused extinction emergency?

Overview

At this very late stage of needed fossil fuel reductions, only government-enforced actions to reduce global fossil fuel use to the required 2025 global target levels can save us from a soon-arriving global warming-caused extinction nightmare. 

This article contains vital global warming strategic information and a sobering message for both our prominent environmental organizations as well as key global warming activists like Greta Thunberg, Al Gore, Bill McKibben, etc. This article also contains important COVID-19 and global warming-related insights.

This article has been sent to many of the board members and executive management at some of the world's most prominent environmental organizations educating about global warming (Greenpeace, World Wildlife Fund, Extinction Rebellion, Fridays for the FutureSunrise Movement, 350.org, Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club Foundation, National Resources Defense Council, Environmental Defense Fund, Wildlife Conservation Society, Worldwide Fund for Nature, and The Earth Day Network to name but a few.)

Introduction

It does not come as a shock to most individuals and organizations that understand global warming to hear that our governments are not doing anything even close to the needed fossil fuel reductions and actions that would save us from our current global warming emergency. Global fossil fuel use has not been reduced to anything even close to where we should be in part, because our governments have consistently ignored 35 years of valid and dire scientific warnings.

Our fossil fuel heavily-lobbied governments have repeatedly been the leading and primary source of:

a. grossly underestimated global warming consequence severity estimates and timetables, and

b. grossly underestimated global fossil fuel reduction targets.

With the above statements in a and b above being proven accurate within the documentation of the above links, the key question for humanity's global warming future now becomes:

"What will it take to get the governments of the world to finally enact the real global fossil fuel reductions needed to end the escalating global warming nightmare?"

If we do not answer this question correctly and soon, there will be no livable future for any of us. 

Two realistic solution and strategy scenarios are presented in this article to answer the above "what will it take" question. The most straightforward strategic solution is found in Scenario One below. It is easier to do and digest because it does not have to come into being because of the increasing global warming consequence catastrophes found in Scenario Two.

Scenario Two will be very painful precisely because of the unconscionable mass suffering and death that will have to be endured if we have to wait for the Scenario Two global warming solution to naturally unfold. 

Scenario One: How to get a large portion of the national and global population protesting on the global warming emergency at the same time to finally get our politicians to act! 

Scenario one is not only possible but it is critical due to the urgency of this emergency. Scenario One has two important parts:

Part 1. Scenario one starts with us, the world's environmental organizations, global warming activists, (like Greta Thunberg, Al Gore, Bill McKibben, etc,) and our politicians solidly understanding that we must reduce all global fossil fuel use by 75% by 2025. Yes, you read that right, 75% is the needed number!

The current global fossil fuel reduction numbers that we have been given by our governments are WAY, way OFF, and horribly wrong. We as individuals (as well as the world's environmental organizations,) first need to understand that we have been systemically and continually deceived by the fossil fuel industry's lobbied government authorities!

Our government authorities have cleverly hidden or muddled the real global fossil fuel use reduction targets by continuing to release new, different, and still grossly incorrect reduction targets.

This wrong global fossil fuel reduction target issue is not a small matter. If we do not meet the real 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, we are in a life and death extinction emergency. This is because if we fail to reach these targets, we will rapidly go over four extinction-evoking global warming tipping points explained in detail along with this extinction process's critical dates here.

You do not have to take our word that you have been systematically and continually deceived by well-financed national and international fossil fuel vested interests buying our politicians. You do not have to believe that this situation is much like the endless lies by the cigarette companies concerning the dangers of their products allowed by previous politicians for decades. You can read precisely how the "trusted" global warming authorities and our governments have "cooked" the fossil fuel global reduction numbers with shameless accounting tricks and omissions to benefit the fossil fuel industry here. 

Once you have read the above "cooked books" link, next if you have not done so already, please read the critical details of the real 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets here. By the time you have read these two documents above, and about the four extinction-evoking global warming tipping points here, you should have no remaining reasonable doubt about:

1. the extinction-level seriousness of the global warming emergency,

2. how far away we are from fixing it, and

3. why what you are about to read the next part of Scenario One that is absolutely necessary for our success!

Part 2. Because of what you have just read, (especially about these four extinction-accelerating and soon-arriving tipping points,) you now know why it is critical to get a large portion of humanity (from about 4-10%) into the streets protesting and demanding that our politicians immediately make the required 2025 global fossil fuel reductions to save us before it is too late. These massive public protests are needed because only government-driven and government-enforced actions will be able to make the changes in time to save us! (This urgency is also in part, due to our have having ignored 35 years of neglecting valid scientific warnings squandering the time during which we could have made the required reductions more gradually and easily.)

If we do not get large numbers of protesters into the street now, there is literally no chance we can not go over these 4 major tipping points.  If we go over these tipping points, there is no realistic way remaining to save humanity from a rapidly unfolding mass extinction event occurring over the next 30-50 years.

The really, really bad news here is that --- we have only six years left to prevent the coming mass extinction event by reducing global fossil use by 75% by 2025!  (Here are the multiple actions that our governments need to enact immediately in a mass mobilization to reach the 2025 targets.)

You are probably wondering, how can we get more individuals and the biggest environmental groups to help us get up to 10% of the world's population into the streets protesting and demanding political action at the same time.
