The ultimate victory for a scientific idea is to become the new commonsense.
What’s Another Way to Say ‘We’re F-cked’?
One of the leading climate and global warming scientists of our time is warning of the horrifying and very real possibility of 15-to-20 feet of sea-level rise within 70 years.
A new book on global warming called Climageddon presented a well-documented case that sea level rise by 2050 will likely be closer to 10 feet versus the official estimates of about 3 feet. Now a renown climate scientist suggests the real numbers for global sea level rise could be 15 to 20 feet within as little as the next 70 years!
It appears that severe global warming consequences are coming far, far faster than the public is being told while at the same time governments like the US are secretly preparing for these consequences. For example, the US military has been given a large budget to start dramatically raising all of the dock and wharf facilities at all military seaports around the world to accommodate their own internal sea level rise estimates. If they do not do this, military preparedness and re-supply lines (not to mention world trade,) would be drastically affected as ships could not load or unload at docks and wharves that would be flooding or underwater.
Paradoxically at the same time, the US government publicly denies that global warming is real and removes global warming information from its websites.
It's time to start thinking about why we are not being told by the US government how bad global warming consequences will actually become in the next 10 to 20 years as well as over the next decades. Is the US government not telling us how bad global warming is really going to get because they are not fully ready to handle the mass migrations and the massive changes and reactions from the public and the markets as the public and markets rapidly make the radical real estate, economic and social changes necessary to protect themselves from what is coming?
If you'd like to read more about how global warming caused sea level rise could now be as much as 15 to 20 feet in the next 70 years, which would cripple world trade and flood out significant portions of almost every major coastal city around the world read the full article here,then come back to our website and read this article for the necessary background science you will need to digest the shocking news bet sea level rise is going to be far higher and far faster than you are being told.

World's leading global warming authority warns it's almost too late to save the future!
Of the dozens of articles just released on the newest and worst IPCC report on global warming, the one in Rolling Stone is the one we select for you to review.
Consider it indicative of how bad and how fast a massive global warming disaster and meltdown is approaching...
The long title of the new Rolling Stone article and review of the IPCC report on global warming is; Can Civilization Survive What’s Coming? The new IPCC report on climate change will fill you with existential dread — rightfully so.
Selective quotes from that article:
A thousand years from now, when some vaguely human-like machine digs through the ashes of the Twenty-First century and tries to figure out what happened to those once-thriving animals called Homo sapiens, it may be confused about why an intelligent species that could build rockets and write songs like “Imagine” couldn’t heed warnings of its own destruction. A key question for future historians of the universe: How stupid were those humans anyway?
Here’s what this new IPCC report says, in a nutshell:
To avoid blowing through the 1.5 C target, nations of the world need to cut carbon pollution as fast as humanly possible. To be more precise, nations of the world need to get to zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The other big takeaway from this report is that it’s time to get serious about adapting to a rapidly changing world. If we don’t, a good percentage of civilization as we know it today won’t survive.
From a purely economic point of view, the cost of climate denial is already enormous. Last year, damages from extreme weather hit $306 billion in the U.S. alone, the costliest ever. If we don’t rethink how and where we build homes and infrastructure, those costs will only grow.
You can read the full article here: https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/can-earth-survive-climate-change-735067/
You will notice that there is no pulling punches in this article. If we do not get climate emergency openly declared worldwide and make the necessary changes, we will not survive.
If we are not proposing drastic measures then there is no future for the children.
It is that simple.
Whatever you are doing, if you are not doing everything you can to transform our economic, social, political and moral operating systems, then your families will not forgive you. That is because you know, and when they ask what you did when you knew, no half-measures will save you from their comprehensive condemnation.
Now, if you now believe that telling people the truth is too difficult and will cause people to "give-up," We will say instead that "triggering our survival instinct to act is our only remaining hope."

Look out L Gore, Bill McKibben and Michael Bloomberg, a new global warming education hero has appeared!
and, he has had the courage to go far beyond Al Gore, Bill McKibben and Michael Bloomberg in telling us how bad the global warming is going to get and how soon that really is going to happen. His name is Jeremy Grantham.
Jeremy Grantham is a British investor, philanthropist, and co-founder and chief investment strategist of GMO, a Boston-based asset management firm having more than $118 billion in assets under management. Mr. Grantham earned his M.B.A. from the Harvard Business School and he is regarded as a highly knowledgeable investor in various stock, bond, and commodity markets, and he is particularly noted for his prediction of various financial bubbles. He is also the founder of the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment.
What makes Jeremy Grantham the new hero of global warming and environmental education is that he has had the public courage to tell us that global warming is actually much worse than we are being told. In fact, what he says is much worse than what we are being told by our famous global warming educators like Al Gore, Bill McKibben, and Michael Bloomberg.
In a way, Mr. Grantham describes a new "bubble" that is about to burst as global warming continues to escalate. (Further down this blog post you will find the links to his video and to his full paper.)
To reward Mr. Grantham's courage in making these highly publicized statements about the true future of global warming, the Job One for Humanity nonprofit organization now recognizes him as another true hero, wise elder, and global warming educational leader. To further reward his brave actions, our organization will offer a free ebook copy of a new 450-page book about global warming (which also supports his statements about the real future of global warming,) to every one of his employees at both the Grantham Foundation and at GMO, the Boston-based asset management firm.
To watch Jeremy Grantham's strongly recommended and chilling short video presentation of key information about the coming collapse in global life-critical systems, click the link below.
To read Jeremy Grantham complete presentation with all of its back up documentation, illustrations, and graphs, click the link below:
Congratulations Jeremy Grantham on having the courage to speak truth to power about our global warming emergency and its related environmental collapse. May your wisdom and courage be an example to us all!
(Employees of the Grantham Foundation and the asset management firm GMO may obtain their free ebook copies of the new book on global warming by emailing manage@JobOneforHumanity.org and putting "Hero's free ebook" in the subject line. Downloading instructions will be sent to you within 2 business days.)
Will global warming force families and businesses to relocate farther north within the next 10-20 years?
Each month we do news update for our members and subscribers. This month and going forward we have decided to make this monthly member/subscriber update available to all website visitors...
We said we would keep you informed about the global warming emergency. To do that I'm going to share a few bits of telling news before directly addressing the question raised in the subject line of this blog post.
1.) The Saudi's have been discretely buying up huge numbers of dairy farms in northern Wisconsin as well as thousands of acres a prime farmland in the northern parts of Ukraine.
2.) The world’s wealthiest individuals (who pay huge annual fees for specialized climate research to protect their investments,) have been strongly advised to buy security compounds in northern global warming "safe zones" as an essential survival hedge against a rapidly deteriorating global warming situation. They have also been advised to make significant real estate investments in northern global warming safe zones for profitable resale later. Corroborating this, there have been numerous news reports about these huge and unique purchases.
3.) The northern nations within or closest to global warming safe zones are already toughing up their border security as well as their immigration qualifications and laws making immigration to the north far more restrictive and costly. Expect to hear much more about this tightening and closing of northern borders as global warming accelerates.
4.) More and more individuals from around the world who have been decimated by two or more global warming catastrophes (rain bombs, flooding, wildfires, droughts, sea level rise etc,) have decided to stop rebuilding where they are and have decided to migrate to safer areas. The number of new climate refugees (climagees) is now rising at a near exponential pace with each new year and real estate values in global warming high-risk areas are dropping fast and hard!
5.) Below of the public radar, the world's insurance companies are quietly canceling flood, fire and other global warming-related insurance policies in global warming high-risk zones or they are dramatically raising rates. Getting mortgage insurance in unsafe areas will become tougher and tougher due to insurance companies no longer offering policies in many of these areas and the exorbitant insurance rates you will have to pay if you do find coverage.
6.) As if the above is not enough to get you thinking about your global warming future, I offer a few additional thoughts to consider carefully:
Do you honestly think that our governments are going to tell us how bad the global warming emergency really is?
Do you think that they will ever chance how it might affect their economic stability, the real estate markets or the general social stability?
Do you think that the real bad news about global warming might be being intentionally denied publicly or officially withheld so that our governments, politicians, military and its wealthy insiders can ensure that they, their families and their assets are safe and protected first?
Now that some new thinking has been stimulated and before I answer the main question on the subject line of this blog post, whether you personally will need to relocate north within the next 10 or 20 years to avoid the escalating and harsh consequences of global warming,I would like to share a little bit more about what I been doing over the past year as far as it directly relates to this important question...
During 2018 because global warming is such an important issue at Universe Spirit, for over a month I traveled by car around the United States. I drove over 5,000 miles looking for "global warming safe" land and communities that are situated above the 45th parallel north. (If you're not sure where the 45th parallel crosses the United States, imagine a line that goes from near Portland, Oregon over to Minneapolis, Minnesota through Green Bay, Wisconsin and over to and through the upper half of Maine.)
There is not really a lot of land available in the US above the 45th parallel when you think about it. Most of that land is not global warming safe for various reasons. In fact, most of this land is so difficult to survive or thrive upon that less than 5% of the total US population is currently living on it.
The reason that I felt strongly motivated to do this safe land search was because of our existing climate research (and its supporting math and physics,) which profoundly demonstrates there are unavoidable and severe global warming consequences coming far sooner than almost anyone (except our organization and several other organizations and climate scientists,) are telling the general public. Dedicated climate researchers like myself, as well as other climate scientists who have done the predictive math, know how bad it is going to get and have already started adjusting their lives to the harsh new reality of the future. Additionally, it is highly probable that those individuals who still live below the 45th parallel north and who had previously avoided the worst of the global warming-related consequences like the wildfires, rain bombs, hurricanes, tornadoes, and flooding, will no longer be able to avoid these escalating consequences in as little as 10 to 15 years.
During my 5,000 miles of travel, I was also looking for a safe and stable new home for the Job One For Humanity organization and the Universe Spirit organization and land for my family, our staff and friends who have also expressed their desire to move before more and more people begin to migrate and real estate prices start rising in the safest northern areas. I was carefully looking for very specific areas that met all of the key criteria for being a safe or safer place to survive and thrive through the three major phases of the transitional global warming emergency.
As global warming continues over the next 10-20+ years those three phases are:
1.) A regular increase in the severity, frequency, and scale of the global warming consequences described on this page,
2.) As more and more basic crops fail because of the many global warming consequences converging, food prices soar and food shortages and mass starvation becomes a widespread global reality, and
3.) The many consequences described in number one and two above bring about global economic, political and social instability and chaos.
I firmly believe that northerly migration is inevitable and should be planned soon for appropriate individuals in higher risk locations particularly as more people realize what the world is experiencing with its current extreme weather is not going to get better only worse for many decades. Most smart people will eventually realize, that what is occurring now and what is coming, is not just random weather events or some normal climate cycle.
They will realize that what we are currently experiencing in our climate and what we will continue to experience with increasing severity, frequency and at larger and larger scales, is nothing more or less than the science-predicted consequences of the physics and math of the escalating global warming emergency.
What this all means to you
While our organization, staff, and friends begin their orderly migration to near or above the 45 parallel north, we will, with your financial support, continue offering the latest information, news and insights on how to best prepare for this emergency both physically and spiritually in order that you and your loved ones can stay ahead of it.
Now that I've given you a little bit of what's happening with me and what's happening with the Job One and Universe Spirit organizations, it's time to provide a detailed answer the life and death question about when (or if,) you should move and how are you should protect your assets as the world goes through the anticipated global warming changes.
Here are several links with all necessary information that will help you determine “will global warming force you to move in the next 10-20 years and what you can do.”
If you have not read this update on our current global warming emergency be sure you do! http://www.joboneforhumanity.org/irreversible_global_warming_is_here_now
There is one other important member subscriber update...
It is with great reluctance that we are going to begin a gradual process of removing individuals from our member and subscriber email lists. After a very difficult economic decision regarding reducing our organizational costs, we are going to begin removing the oldest inactive names on our subscriber member lists first. These will only be people who have not donated even as little as one dollar, volunteered, signed a petition, commented on our website or otherwise been involved with us in any active way over a long period of time.
We can significantly reduce our monthly mail list servicing costs by eliminating thousands of members or subscribers from these lists who have not been supportive or active within our organization in any way for years. If it's been a long time since you've emailed us, commented on our website, donated,volunteered, signed a petition or have done anything else to help forward our mission,please consider doing one of those things when you get this and your name will go onto our protected member subscriber lists and you will not be deleted.
We realize that removing members subscribers from our mail lists is painful not only for us but also for individuals who value what we offer but have not ever interacted with us in any way. To give those of you who fall in this second category time to react to this new cost-reducing policy, we will begin this inactive member subscriber deletion program October 30, but only if there has not been a significant uptick in donations and other member subscriber interactions.
In closing, we would rather work closely with a smaller group of informed and dedicated individuals who understand the challenges before us and willing to help and support our mission rather than have thousands and thousands of names on our member or subscriber lists who are inactive, no longer interested or non-supportive.
Please do what you can to donate and/or support our mission in other ways as soon as possible. These actions will help keep this important work going because in the too distant future you and your family will probably need our up-to-date research on how to best prepare and adapt to what is coming as well as where to find the safest locations and new communities to ride out the escalating global warming emergency.
And finally, in special appreciation for their ongoing support, all donors and volunteers and only donors and volunteers will receive our first briefings on the specific best locations for relocating their families and businesses in the safest global warming zones that I discovered after my 5,000 mile trip across the top of the US.
Yours for humanity, our children, and the earth,
Humans are pushing the Earth closer to a climate cliff.
A new study examines potential climate feedbacks that could push Earth into a ‘hothouse’ state. A new paper, just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has received a lot of media attention.
The attention is justified because the paper paints a very grim picture of the climate and what humans may be doing to it. In particular, the authors of this study tried to determine the trajectory that the Earth is on so we can predict what the future climate will be.

What major change happened at Universe Spirit and what is going to Happen now?
It's time for a candid update about both our organization's recent past and our future. It is also best to get the facts from us rather than from someone who is not from within our organization.
What has happened to Universe Spirit?
For many years our organization provided spiritual services, meditations, retreats, sustainability education and worked to expand the ideas of eco-spirituality found in our writings (Spirituality 2.0 and Religion 2.0 fully explained here.)
One day about 10 years ago I was in a deep meditation and a strong thought and feeling filled my awareness. It contained the clear concept that I and our organization needed to stop our current mission focus on eco-spirituality education and focus on researching the current facts on global warming. This just came to me completely out of the blue.
I really did not want to carry out this idea because as its executive director, I loved the spiritual work that I was involved in within the Universe Spirit organization.
For months, I fought this reoccurring idea, but it kept reappearing in my daily meditations and it grew stronger.
I finally decided to a psychologist who had been a Luthern minister and taught at a seminary. After extensive counseling sessions trying to both reality test and refute the validity of this persistent inspiration or "calling" if you like, I finally came to accept that the Universe and/or it's and mysterious Originating Spirit was directing me toward some new very unwanted mission. This was in spite of the fact that I had never before done any research in this area and most people consider me a hard science guy and this kind of persistent meditative inspirational thoughts were very new to me.
For the next 9 and 1/2 years, I studied most of the current published research on global warming (some 15,000 pages.) What I discovered was that global warming is far worse then we are being publicly told by anyone! (This anyone includes our governments and surprisingly the biggest names in environmentalism and global warming education.)
As a result of these near full-time studies, I published a book called Climageddon, The Global Warming Emergency and How to Survive It (which all Universe Spirit mail list subscribers get free as an ebook here.) Additionally, the Universe Spirit organization also created a new website called Job One for Humanity to help educate about the real consequences, tipping points, and extinction-level crisis coming soon for most of humanity unless ---we radically and immediately change our ways! (This new Job One for Humanity website also provides all the critical information on how to survive this emergency and how to get through the soon-coming consequences as well as you can.)
Because both I and the Universe Spirit organization shifted our focus towards warning the world about how bad global warming actually is, as opposed to what we are being told, Universe Spirit's ongoing eco-spirituality education and service activities had to be greatly curtailed over the past extended period.
That's the past...
What's important now is what's going to happen at Universe Spirit with your support!
Slowly we are going to go back to doing more of our eco-spirituality and sustainability work, but our focus is still going to be different based on the new facts we have learned about the global warming emergency.
This is what we are now planning to do going forward:
1.) We are going to move our organizational headquarters and key staff as well as those Universe Spirit members or subscribers who want to join in the creation of a sustainable eco-community to the far north of the United States. It will be located in an isolated area that will remain a global warming safe zone for the foreseeable future. This new eco-community will be based on the ideas of Sustainable Prosperity, Spirituality 2.0and the Job One for Humanity Plan.
We are moving north because the science clearly shows that within 10 to 15 years horrible global warming consequences increasing in scale, severity, and frequency will be hitting most of the areas of the United States as well as other parts of the world below the 45th parallel north. By beginning the process of finding the land for our new sustainable eco-community, we will:
a.) be well ahead of the escalating global warming crisis curve as crops fail and the Great Migration north begins (within about 10 years,)
b.) have adequate time to prepare and build a fully-functioning sustainable eco-community grounded in a new eco-spirituality that will help sustain us through the hard times to come and most importantly,
c.) create a "beacon of light" new eco-community that will become a living example for the rebuilding of a broken world for the time when we finally come out of this global warming eco-crisis. (Please see this online booklet to better understand what we mean by a sustainable "beacon of light" eco-community and why we are not acting from a survivalist mentality, but a wise, sustainability advocate's mentality.)
If you are one of those rare individuals who understands what's coming because of global warming, and you would like to participate in helping us build this sustainable eco-community in a new global warming safe zone, please let us know and read these pages. We will put you on our new eco-community email update list. (Send your notification email to me personally at Wollersheim@msn.com and copy the organization at email@example.com We will have our first meeting soon.) And,
2.)Gradually, our organization will re-begin its spiritual education services and sustainability training work while it forwards the things mentioned in the previous point.
Just One more thing...
Our organization is in financial difficulty! When we shifted our emphasis to warning the world about the current global warming emergency, we did not do effective fundraising and frankly, telling people they have to radically alter their normal lives within the next 10 years or possibly migrate (depending upon their current location,) is not a message that anyone wants to hear.
Because of these 2 previous factors affecting our fundraising success, we may have to close all of our websites down within the next 3 to 6 months.
We have already economized as much as possible.
Even though we have let paid staff go and we are functioning almost exclusively with a few volunteers there are still significant costs to keep us functioning online.
This means that unless we get some quick financial help from the people who value our work and what we want to create for a better future, this, unfortunately, may be one of the last emails you receive from us.
Yes, we should've let you know sooner! Now we must hope to reach your heart, mind and your generous spirit to help keep our new mission going. So...
Please make a tax-deductible online donation now. This will take you to the Job One website. Both Job One and Universe Spirit are part of Factnet an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
With your ongoing support, we promise we will move forward with the plans mentioned above and we will keep delivering the truth about the world’s current failed global warming reduction efforts. We will also continue to provide deadline-driven effective actions found in the Job One Plan that will help save and preserve you and your loved ones as the escalating global warming situation deteriorates.
Please make a quick and easy online tax-deductible donation here and keep our new mission alive.
Yours for humanity, our children, and the earth,
PS: If you don't understand how bad global warming already is or, how bad it's going to get, please take this challenge and let us prove it to you. Get the free ebook Climageddon, The Global Warming Emergency and How to Survive It. It will prove to you using science what is coming --- is exactly what we are saying. (All Universe Spirit mail list subscribers get Climageddon free as an ebook here.)
Get it now. If we don't get the necessary emergency funding we need, there is no guarantee it will still be available.
This month's mini global warming update is:
What you are seeing in the California, Greek, Finish, and Canadian wildfires and the heat extremes in Japan, Taiwan, and the Middle East are not the new normal for the climate!
What you are seeing is the beginning of chains of global warming consequences which are beginning and will continue to increase exponentially in their severity, frequency, and scale across the globe. This means what you are seeing right now is NOT the new normal and global warming is going to get much, much worse.
Unfortunately, you will only hear this information from less than a handful of global warming educational organizations daring to speak what people do not want to hear.
What you will also not hear is that the first wave of climate researchers and ultra-wealthy individuals who know about (or have been advised on what's coming,) have already chosen to migrate or prepare to migrate near or above the 45th parallel to minimize the coming global warming consequences. Even several of our staff at Job One have begun the process of finding new places to live in the far north.
You're probably now asking if it's this bad, what can you do about the global warming emergency right now? That can be found in the newly upgradedJob One for Humanity Plan.
Are our comfortable delusions destroying our future and the future of humanity?
(This article is from our partner organization Association for the Tree of Life. It discusses the coming global warming chaos as well as other factors leading to the end of humanity before 2100 and as we contend 70 to 90% of humanity dying within the next 30 to 50 years.)
It’s time to accept that we are not going to dislodge the entrenched interests holding back effective action on looming climate chaos by any means tried so far. Believing that 97% of credible scientists is consensus enough is 103% short for effective response. (Even 200% may not be enough.) Undeniability and incontrovertibility are the only criteria that will work to break through the Hydra-Headed Delusion Dragon clutching all of us.

Liberal philanthropy is dooming the planet to climate disaster, documents reveal
We need a people’s movement to mobilze for ecological regeneration and systemic transformation
One of the world’s biggest philanthropic initiatives to address climate change is set-up to fail catastrophically, according to a strategy document setting out the initiative’s five-year plan.
The strategy document, published by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation in January, represents the third renewal of the Climate Works initiative originally founded in 2008. The initiative was executed through the Climate Works Foundation in coordination with other big philanthropic foundations, the Packard and McKnight Foundations.
The Hewlett Foundation strategy document, titled Climate Initiative Strategy 2018–2023, reflects on the strategic thinking behind the process that led to the announcement last December that the foundation would commit $600 million to address climate change over the next five years — a 20 percent increase from previous funding.

Calculating Your Current and Future Global Warming Risks and Threat Levels
Click here for effective ways to envision and evaluate your personal risks, threat levels, and the true urgency of the escalating global warming emergency on your life. It will help prepare and protect you from what is coming.
Startling research on how people respond to the possibility of the end of civilization and the extinction of humanity
Research done by Melanie Randle and Richard Eckersley (1) in the U.S., UK, Canada, and Australia investigated the perceived probability of threats to humanity and our different responses to them (nihilism,(2)fundamentalism,(3)and activism (4)).
- A majority (54%) rated the risk of our way of life ending within the next 100 years at 50% or greater.
- A quarter (24%) rated the risk of humans being wiped out at 50% or greater.
- The remaining study participants rated the risk of humans being wiped out within the next 100 years from 0 to less than 50%.
Across countries, age groups, gender, and education levels, the responses were relatively uniform.
Here's what they also discovered:
- Almost 80% agreed “we need to transform our worldview and way of life if we are to create a better future for the world” (activism).
- About 50% agreed that “the world’s future looks grim, so we have to focus on looking after ourselves and those we love” (nihilism).
- Over 33% believed that “we are facing a final conflict between good and evil in the world” (fundamentalism).
Keeping these findings in mind about how people see the future when faced with the end of civilization and the extinction of humanity, it is paramount to examine your possible personal options below in responding to the global warming emergency that can lead to the same result.
The above leads us to our current global warming emergency that within as little as the next 30-50 years will lead to the extinction to as much as 70 to 90% of humanity.
Your options for what to do about the global warming emergency
The A-F options below are those most commonly chosen after someone understands the true gravity of our escalating global warming emergency. You may choose more than one of these responses in some combination.
The denial strategies and options:
- Deny it and do nothing because it's overwhelming. Denial is an understandable and legitimate psychological defense mechanism when the reality is too much for that particular mind to bear. From experience at the Job One for Humanity organization, it was seen that many people struggle with the disheartening and difficult information of this book. For some individuals, complete denial is initially necessary to continue to survive with some semblance of psychological and emotional equilibrium. (At some later date, as their psychological and emotional equilibrium becomes stronger regarding this emergency, some of these individuals will choose to begin working on parts of the plan found in Part 2 of this book.)
- Deny it and do nothing because you believe the inaccurate or incomplete media coverage and advertisements deceptively forwarded by the fossil fuel industry. These types of media pronouncements generate doubt and confusion regarding the global warming science or the seriousness of the global warming emergency. At some point, when the real and personal costs of escalating global warming finally hit close to home, or individuals in this mindset are exposed to more global warming science, many of these individuals will leave the denier category and may also join efforts to resolve the emergency.
- Deny it and intentionally do nothing because you are profiting from the fossil fuel-related industries. These organizations and individuals will flat out deny almost everything in this book. These organizations and individuals almost always have a direct or indirect vested interest in the continued profitability of the fossil fuel-related industries or are being secretly or openly paid by the fossil fuel-related industries to create doubt and misinformation about areas of settled climate science. These “merchants of doubt” and misinformation are using many of the same tactics that were effectively used by the tobacco industry to delay laws regulating tobacco product use for almost 50 years.
To one degree or another, the denial strategies listed above are like the proverbial ostrich sticking its head in the sand, hoping that by not seeing a threat it will be spared. Denial strategies do not work for the ostrich and they will not work for us. The escalating global warming emergency will eventually impose its painful consequences upon any and all worlds of carefully constructed partial or complete denial.
Reality always seems to have the uncanny ability to impose itself and overcome through sheer force and consequence any attempt to deny it. Denial almost always adds additional pain and suffering on top of the original delayed or denied consequences. Or in other words:
"Resistance is what you add to pain to make it last longer and hurt more." —Errol Strider (Resistance is a key form of denial.)
The acceptance strategies and options:
- Accept the facts of the coming Climageddon, but do nothing about it. This option is taken when individuals feel they have no real influence or control that could significantly improve the situation, or they are so preoccupied with other more pressing personal problems they have no time or bandwidth left for any other life problems. These individuals simply go about living their lives trying to have as much peace and enjoyment as is possible by simply focusing on their daily problems and ignoring the situations they believe they cannot effectively influence or control.
- Accept the facts of the coming Climageddonand do nothing more than preparing one’s loved ones, business, community, or nation for what is coming. These individuals strongly believe that the hope of resolving the escalating global warming emergency is so slim that it would be wiser for them to take whatever time and resources they have and dedicate all of them to preparing the appropriate emergency reserves and migration plans while also still trying to enjoy their lives every day as best they can for as long as they can. At some level, these individuals also believe they do not have the influence or control to make a real difference anyway.
- Accept the facts of the coming Climageddonand work for the best possible outcome for resolving the global warming emergency. There are many mature adults who understand that difficult conversations, facts and situations are just another part of navigating the challenges of life. They understand that if they do not have all the accurate facts, they cannot properly do whatever is necessary to make the best out of any difficult situation. These individuals are strong enough emotionally and psychologically to bear the weight of disheartening truths like those found in this book. They are also the same individuals who will quickly seek out and use the best plans and strategies available. They will not deceive themselves as to the costs, pain, or suffering that resolving any difficult situation entails. While these individuals work for the best, they are also wise enough to prepare for the worst. However, they will not make personal emergency preparation their main priority. They will focus the majority of their attention and resources on resolving the escalating emergency using the best possible strategies.
Before you decide which strategy and option you will use, please do not forget that there may be still some time and hope left to avert climate catastrophe even though the process will be extremely costly, difficult, and painful. There is also much we do not know about the global warming systems and subsystems that could provide some positive wild cards in our favor.
If you have chosen the denial strategies and options
If you're one of those individuals who:
- is a denier or is overwhelmed by all this bad news, or
- believes that things are truly hopeless, or
- believes that you don't have to worry about what you can't control and you can just enjoy the present, or
- is preparing for what is coming by protecting only yourself and loved ones without acting to help slow, lessen, and resolve the situation,
then there are two more important ideas to carefully consider:
- By doing nothing, you shorten the critical time frame needed for more people, technology, and infrastructure to be successfully moved to the far north or far south so that more of the population can live a bit longer.
- Your inaction and/or your seeking personal comfort or escape from your moral, ethical, and spiritual obligation (if you are of a spiritual nature) to act is in fact, by omission, a form of contributing to the end of civilization and humanity as we know it.
If you are still a denier of the global warming emergency, your denial will also slow or prevent your own necessary preparation and protection because you believe there is no problem. Once our governments are overwhelmed by global warming’s continuous disasters, reality will rear its harsh and ugly head. Because of denial and your lack of preparation, you and those closest to you will receive the likely reward of suffering more and longer.
