On the Job One for Humanity website, we have candidly presented how bad global warming will get. We have also disclosed the steep challenges we face to save humanity from total extinction from the many accelerating global warming-related consequences.
Once our visitors and members have understood this information, almost everyone (including our staff and volunteers) makes one or more of the following four major choices concerning what they will do about the accelerating consequences of the global warming emergency.
In such an extreme and challenging emergency as we now find ourselves, our organization does not blame or render judgment upon any individuals or groups choosing any one or more of the following four options.
(We do although have many helpful suggestions here for people who choose option one. We also have survival preparation and adaptation recommendations for anyone who chooses option two both here and in the Members section of our website.)
The four major choices that informed individuals weigh out and make concerning what they will do about the global warming emergency
Below please find the most common options that people select once they understand the true gravity and urgency of the global warming extinction emergency:
Option 1: In a do-or-die effort, many individuals and groups will decide to pour all of their remaining resources into getting our governments to get close to the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets as the only honest and effective way to save some of humanity. (People who chose this option may also see the many potential global warming survival benefits.)
As more individuals and groups realize they are fighting for their survival, maybe our governments will finally listen to a rising mass global outcry for action. Perhaps our governments will eventually mobilize the necessary effective actions and enforce the drastic global fossil fuel reductions needed. Hopefully, it will not be too little too late.
(Our organization honors the courage and sacrifice of all individuals who choose this option.)
Option 2: Despite difficult long-term survival odds (described all over our website), many people still will decide to take a chance and do the necessary preparation and adaptation to survive for as long as possible and as comfortably as possible. The drive to survive at all costs is very powerful in our species.
Individuals who chose to survive as long as possible also might relocate to global warming safer lands as needed. They might also form or join a sustainable eco-community. This community will have their back as things worsen and help them produce what is necessary as distribution networks stall or collapse.
People who chose this option also may see the many potential global warming survival benefits worth taking the chance. They may even join this great evolutionary adventure of being one of the new Evolutioneers (individuals or groups who choose to be co-creators) of the Great Global Rebirth, no matter how difficult.
While individuals who chose this second option are preparing and adapting, they also might be doing everything else they can to get our governments to finally enforce the life-critical 2025 targets to reduce global fossil fuel use.
Option 3: Other individuals have decided to accept the collapse and probable extinction situation (described here) as it is. Their goal is simple. They want to use the remaining time they have that is still relatively stable to live as meaningfully and as enjoyably life as is possible.
They have decided to live within a smaller, more controllable life scale. This is because they believe that the bigger life-scale of global collapse and extinction is entirely out of their control. They may also think that pushing our governments to radically and immediately reduce global fossil fuel use at this late stage is a waste of their time, energy, and resources.
Instead, they want to use their remaining time and environmental stability to put their affairs in order and start living their remaining dreams or "bucket lists."
In one way or another, individuals who choose this option have decided that now is the perfect time to drop out of the modern "consume and waste" social rat race and tune in to what is truly important with their remaining time! Younger people who have chosen this option also may decide that it is not ethical to have more children. This no children decision is because they know what we face, and there is a high probability their children will have painful short lives.
Option 4: Many people combine or customize their self-chosen elements from the three strategies above as time and resources permit.
Here are our organizational choices concerning what we will do about the climate change emergency
We will support you as best we can, no matter which of the four choices you make.
We believe that our world is already well into an unfolding and unavoidable Great Global Collapse process. For this reason, our organization's focus must be prioritized on saving and salvaging as much of humanity and our civilization as we can in the hope that someday we will learn from the collapse, and there can be a Great Global Rebirth.
At the same time, as an organization, we must push our governments to mass mobilize and enforce the critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets to slow down the already unfolding extinction and collapse process.
Please help us help you and humanity by starting one of the four parts of the Job One for Humanity Plan.
