  • The 4 most Critical Global Warming Deadlines and Tipping Points We Must Never Forget

    There are just 4 global warming deadlines and tipping points to never forget because if we miss or cross them... 

    Image result for photos of deadlines

    humanity and civilization will most likely cease within our lifetimes! 

    That is a strong statement, but we can prove every bit of it to you in the links on this page.

    But, first you need to know what the four deadlines and tipping points are:

    The 2025 "last chance" prevention deadline and tipping point:

    Because we have wasted 35 years with ineffective global warming regulation, if we do not hit our critical and last chance 2025 radical global fossil fuel reduction targets as described on this page, we go over the climate cliff and the global warming tipping point that will create a downward sliding slope so steep that it is highly improbable we will be able to recover from it until long after we cross the unbearable near-extinction and then final extinction level tipping points described further below. 

    Here's another way of describing why the above 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets are so important to achieve. If we do not engage in anything less than the greatest mass mobilization of resources in human history directed toward radically cutting fossil fuel use to hit the critical 2025 targets described above, we will without a doubt cross what is known as our "last chance" carbon 425-450 ppm climate cliff. It is called the last chance climate cliff because once we go over this carbon 425 to 450 climate cliff we will not be able to stop ourselves from going over other far worse global warming tipping points.

    The following is a graph showing carbon in our atmosphere in parts per million (ppm.) Currently, we are now averaging about 3 additional carbon ppm per year. As you can see below after 21 global conferences on reducing global warming, we are failing horribly at reducing atmospheric carbon ppm which directly causes global warming from fossil field burning.

    If we continue only to the carbon 425 ppm climate cliff and tipping point level, in about 6 years or less we can expect an eventual increase in average global temperature of about 2.2°-2.7° Celsius (4°-4.9° Fahrenheit) from preindustrial levels. At the 2.2°-2.7°, Celsius increased temperature levels from preindustrial levels, millions and millions of people will starve to death and be forced to either migrate or die. 

    Worse yet, once we hit the 2.2°-2.7° Celsius temperature increase level the heat producing momentum within our climate systems for all of the previous carbon that we have put into the atmosphere, we will rapidly push the temperature even higher. When we cross the carbon 425 carbon ppm climate cliff tipping point, we will have also reached the key threshold transition level where we will slide quickly down the slippery slopes and continue near uncontrollably to 3°, 4°, 5°, and 6° Celsius average global temperature increases (5.4°, 7.2°, 9°, and 10.8° Fahrenheit.) 

    These much sooner arriving higher temperatures than we are being told by our governments of 3°, 4°, 5°, and 6° Celsius will be due our continuing to add more fossil fuel carbon to the atmosphere but also from the crossing additional global warming tipping points and triggering other positive feedback loops and points of no return within the many systems and subsystems of the global climate. 

    Chapter_4_Tipping_Points_Have_No_Return.png

    The 2029 "migrate or die" deadline and tipping point:

    If we miss our last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, and if you live in a global warming unsafe zone, you will need to migrate before this date. Near or by about 2029 real estate prices will crash in global warming high-risk areas and they will soar in the few remaining global warming low-risk areas. Nations in the global warming low-risk areas will either be closing their borders or making immigration so restrictive that few individuals will still be able to migrate. Click here to learn more about the safe (low risk,) and unsafe (high risk,) global warming zones as well as wise global warming migration options.

    The 2038-2042 deadline and "near-extinction" tipping point, where ALLice on earth begins melting:

    Crossing the climate cliff of carbon 425 ppm unfailingly sets us up to rapidly cross with the next near-extinction tipping point level of carbon 500 ppm where the temperature will eventually increase to 4°C. At a 4°C temperature increase above preindustrial levels, all ice on earth will melt and organized society cannot exist!

    Crossing the carbon 500 ppm threshold has, in fact, happened repeatedly in Earth's geological history. When this has occurred, the sea level inevitably rose to the 70 meters (230 feet) range. At our current annual carbon ppm emission rates of an additional 3 ppm, we will reach this catastrophic carbon 500 ppm range in as little as 20-25 more years about 2038-2042. 

    If we cross that critical tipping point by passing the atmospheric carbon level of 500 parts per million (ppm), our average global temperature will eventually, but quickly soar to 4°C (7.2 degrees Fahrenheit). At 4°C, a large portion of humanity (hundreds of millions to billions) will die of starvation (or die and suffer from increased heat's 19 other related consequences) and, governments and society will collapse in most areas of the world between the 35th parallel north and the 35th parallel south.

    Even though it will take many centuries for the seas to rise the full 230 feet, there will still be shocking sea level rise spurts within those centuries where the sea level rise up to 10 feet or more in just a few decades as it also has done repeatedly in Earth's past. 

    Take a moment to visualize the seas eventually but steadily rising 230 feet and what this will mean to our coastal cities, our national borders and the generations that follow us. Take a moment to visualize the ever-increasing massive worldwide crop failures because of the ever-increasing heat and the consequent mass suffering of slow starvation as we approach and pass the carbon 500 ppm level.

    Take a moment to let the following sink in once again. Anything at or above a 4°Celcius increase in average global temperature would be incompatible with an organized global society and would be beyond adaptation!

    This temperature and carbon ppm level would also virtually guarantee we will hit carbon 600 ppm. When we cross the carbon 500 ppm tipping point we cross a steeper even more slippery slope and we will quickly reach the carbon 600 ppm extinction level tipping point within another 25-30 years (as soon as 2063-2072 or earlier.)

    When we cross carbon 500 ppm level, we also will greatly accelerate the process of crossing more global warming tipping points. This will once again further spike the average global temperature. If we are really really lucky carbon 500 ppm might be pushed back to between 2042-2067. 

    The 2063-2072 or earlier deadline and "final extinction" tipping point

    Once we cross the carbon 500 ppm near-extinction tipping point, it is nearly certain that we will also soon cross the carbon 600 ppm final extinction tipping point not long after that. Crossing the carbon 600 ppm level will result in raising the average global temperature to 5°C (9 degrees Fahrenheit) and bring about massive methane clathrate releases from ocean coastal shelves as it has done before in the Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum56 million years ago, and most notably the Permian–Triassic extinction event, when up to 96% of all marine species became extinct, 252 million years ago. 

    Please click here to watch a short video that brilliantly explains the global extinction process once we start releasing vast amounts of methane clathrate from our coastal shelves. Although methane is being released all over the world in and greater and greater amounts, new research shows that we most likely begin the massive methane release processes once we reach 5°C and, By 6°C, it is in full bloom. 

    Because methane, when released is 86 times more potent than carbon as a temperature increasing greenhouse gas, it' massive release will rapidly spike up the average global temperatures once again. 

    The following is a methane graph (found at https://www.methanelevels.org)in which you can see how total atmospheric methane levels from all sources have skyrocketed particularly during the last 50 years.

    If it continues to rise from there toward the carbon 600 ppm final tipping point and an average global temperature of 5°C, it will eventually bring about the extinction of most if not all of humanity (about 70-90%) and the end of civilization as we know it in the final phases of what is called the Climageddon Scenario.

    While even slowing down our crossing the carbon 600 ppm extinction tipping point will be a Herculean task of massive global cooperation and mobilization, the probability that we can at least temporarily, slow and delay some of the other of the 20 worst global warming consequences is still reasonable, but more importantly radically slowing down fossil fuel use will allow us more time to get prepared for the many other consequences we can no longer avoid.)

    As you can see the probability that we will cross the carbon 600 ppm extinction tipping point is high. Additionally, the final window of opportunity to prevent crossing the carbon 600 ppm extinction tipping point will close by 2025 if we have not made the radical and immediate radical fossil fuel cuts necessary. This is because of the:

    a. temperature momentum already "baked" into the climate system (the existing carbon 411 ppm level already in the atmosphere,)

    b. the additional 3 or more carbon particles per million we continue to add to the atmosphere each year (as we continue failing to adequately reverse our fossil fuel use,) and

    c. The additional global warming tipping points we will continue to cross at an even faster rate if we miss our 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets.

    In summary:

    At 5°C which will occur once we hit carbon 600 ppm and above, a large portion of humanity (70-90% or more,) will die of starvation because of the devastating effect that increased heat will have on crop failures or from global warming's other 19 worst consequences) and, economies, governments, and societies will collapse in many areas of the world between the high-risk 45th parallel north and the 45th parallel south. As we reach the carbon 500 ppm and carbon 600 ppm tipping point levels, we will also cross into the later and most dangerous later phases (4 and 5) of the 6-phase Climageddon Scenario climate model. (We strongly recommend that at some point after you finish this document you also read about the 6 phases of the Climageddon Scenario here. It more specifically describes the deadlines, timetables, and phase by phase consequences of your global warming future if we miss our 2025 targets.)

    Take a moment and think about the bitter reality that at the carbon 600 ppm tipping point (which can occur as soon as 2063-2072, or possibly even earlier,) where we trigger the final processes that will bring about the extinction of as much as 70 to 90% of humanity if not more. 

    Long before we reach the carbon 600 ppm level tipping point level, civilization will begin collapsing in earnest and as we get close to this level the unlucky survivors will enter into an ecological and climate hell and a new social dark age that will make the survivors of the following centuries curse us and wish they were dead.

  • The most important thing to know about Earth Day 2019 and your April's global warming news

    On April 22 we celebrate another Earth Day, but what is the most important single thing we should take away this year?

    Image result for Photos of Earth Day

    Here it is.

    "Unless we make the radical global fossil fuel reduction targets that we absolutely need to hit before 2025, there will be a mass extinction (70-90 % of humanity or more,) within our lifetimes!"

    Please don't blindly believe what we're saying. Take a moment out of love for the Earth and look at the science.

    1.) Check out the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets here

    2.) Discover the set-by-step humanity-endingconsequences and tipping points we will trigger and which, will quickly lead to our near-total or total extinction, but only if we miss the above 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. Click here for those tipping points and consequences.

    This Earth Day, your most important thing to understand is why hitting our 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets is indispensable to your survival.

    Other important April news:

    1.) Last week the Central Bank of England and the Central bank of France warned the world that if we do not pay immediate attention to global warming, we will not exist! They also warned companies all over the world to become more aware of the many growing dangers of global warming and how they will affect their current and future business. This was one of the strongest warnings to ever come out of the economic marketplace.

    2.) The New York Times says climate chaos is coming! Click the following link. Climate chaos is coming and, the Pinkerton's are ready.

    3.) The New York Times says global warming migration is already underway and here are some good locations to migrate to. Click the following link. Want to escape global warming, these cities promise cool relief.

    4.) An environmental activist and lawyer burned himself to death to protest escalating global warming. We feel he should be named one of the heroes of this 2019 Earth Day. Click the following link. A lawyer set himself on fire to protest climate change.

    5.) The Extinction Rebellionis a new and rapidly growing protest group calling attention all over the world to the necessary and brutal fact we are facing extinction within our lifetimesif we do not hit the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. They are using peaceful civil disobedience to call our government's attention to this dire emergency.

  • Is the new Armageddon the coming Climageddon?

    I had previously sent out a request to several individuals who have strong interests or credentials in biblical history asking them a fairly simple question.

    Image result for Photos of Armageddon

     

    "How is the Climageddon Scenario extinction model of global warming different or similar in any way to the antecedents, causes or consequences to what is described as Armageddon, the End of Days or even the Rapture or, for that matter, any other religions prophecy of a great coming destruction of most or all of humanity?

    I do not have a background in this type of religious history and I thought it could be interesting and fruitful to see how those who do understand these prophecy areas would see any similarities to the science-grounded unfolding of the antecedents, causes, or consequences of the Climageddon Scenario extinction model of global warming.

    I also thought that by having a better understanding all of any similarities or differences in those religious areas would allow nonreligious global warming education organizations like Job One for Humanity to better engage religious leaders all over the world in helping to tell their members about the imminent global warming extinction threat found within the Climageddon Scenario.

    Below you will find one of the first replies I have received and we have included here with permission. If you have any ideas or comments on the religious history question I have written above, please email me your thoughts at the email address below. We may ask to post your email as well.

    Please feel free to share this post in any other newsgroups and blogs that may be able to assist us crowdsource this important question.

    Hi Lawrence

    I hope you’re making some progress in line with your plans. Although I’m taking a break, your request still sits with me because at all times I wish to help you whenever you ask. I also have no doubt that our respective paths will unite fully in the future. Therefore, while I’m unable to do the specific research requested, perhaps there’s something I already know that I can pass on to you to help. Although it’s not exactly what you asked for, here’s a little something that you may or may not already have. It’s more a conclusion rather than information if you get my drift. An output rather than an input.

    Climageddon, being part of Armageddon, will not and cannot be solved by the current world order! Not only have they proven to hide the facts, lie and deceive the people, being in partial denial about climate change, but we now have the USA (the world’s biggest polluter) leading the fight against climate change, leading the world in the next level of climate change denial: total denial.  As soon as we truly understand and accept this inevitable truth then we can stop wasting our own energy and resources and stop walking this path which will prove to be absolutely futile. Every moment spent walking that path, trying to get the current world order to listen and do what is necessary to avoid climate change, let alone Climageddon, will be a totally wasted effort and only contribute to ourselves catastrophically failing in our mission!!!!!!

    Only a New World Order, the New Age, can overcome both Climageddon and Armageddon! This means that spirituality, the spiritual evolution of humanity, is the one and the only path ahead to tackle Climageddon and Armageddon! The only solution ahead to solving Climageddon lies in:

    1.     Climageddon being critically understood as being an integral part of Armageddon;

    2.     The spiritual evolution of humanity. This is a 2 stage process. Climageddon cannot be solved intellectually but only by humanity evolving our relationship with our planet from being the most abuseful one possible (property and owner) to the highest one, being that Mother Nature is a sentient being, a deity (the indigenous spiritual belief). Only by evolving our spirituality we will learn to individually and collectively connect into a force and power that is far greater than our individual selves. That connection with the divine begins with our planet, Mother Nature (the tangible deity), and then advances to become the intangible deity …. most commonly known as God (but a new and evolutionary understanding of God)!

    I hope this is of some help to you.

    Regards

    David

  • What are the REAL annual Fossil fuel reduction targets we must meet to survive

    We are not being told anywhere close to the real fossil fuel reductions we need to make to keep from going extinct within the next 30 to 50 years.

    Introduction

    In order to prepare you for the shocking REALfossil fuel reductions that must be made if we are going to save humanity from unimaginable loss, suffering, death, and likely extinction, it is first necessary to see just how poorly our previous fossil fuel reduction agreements and actions have fared since we were first notified about the global warming extinction danger by our scientists over 35 years ago. 

    What has been hidden from you 

    1. We have actually increased fossil fuel use more this century than in the last two decades of the 20th century. To make this point alarmingly clear, more than half of all fossil fuel emissions that have been released in the last 25 years and parked in the atmosphere are more than were released in all of recorded history before 1990. 

    2. Even though we have had over 20 international conferences on fossil fuel use reduction, and we had international treaties since at least 1993 pledging we would reduce global warming, worldwide we still are about 67% higher in carbon emissions than the early 1990s. (Atmospheric carbon emissions is probably the best way to measure future global warming.)

    3. In 2018 carbon emissions increased another dramatic 2.7% and they are projected to increase once again in 2019.

    Yes, intentionally or through ignorance, our governments, the media, and most of the world's environmental groups have not been telling us the REAL facts about how what our REAL lack of any progress whatsoever in reducing the rate of fossil fuel use increases, much less the complete absence of any substantive reductions anywhere across the world in reducing atmospheric carbon.

    Keeping the preceding horrific failure of any appreciable efforts to take seriously fossil fuel reductions, or even reducing the rates of increases, now please explore the REAL fossil fuel reductions that must be made to save our future. (If you don't believe we are telling you the facts about our dismal failure in reducing global warming over the last 35 years, click here to view a short video by climate Professor Kevin Anderson in a recent presentation to the Oxford University Climate Society.)

    (If you do not understand how fossil fuel emissions of carbon into the atmosphere creates global warming, please click here for a set of simple illustrations and then continue reading... 

    What must be done

    The absolute minimum total fossil fuel reductions that must occur to prevent the likelihood of going extinct within the next few decades are:

    a. All industrially developed nations must reduce their total fossil fuel use by 75% by 2025 and then continue reducing fossil fuel use to net zero carbon emissions by 2035.  Net carbon zero emissions in this solution means that no additional fossil fuel emissions are going into the atmosphere that are not also simultaneously being removed from the atmosphere by natural means. (Only about 20 countries produce 70% or more of the world's carbon emissions.)

    Think of developed nations like most members of the G 20 group; Argentina, Australia, Canada, the European Union, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom, the United States, China, and India. (See technical note 1 near the end of this page for why China and India had to be included in the list of developed countries.) 

    b. All developing nations must maintain their total fossil fuel emission levels as they are at the beginning of 2019 and not allow them to go any higher. Then by 2045, all developing nations must also be at net zero carbon emissions. This allowance for developing nations to stay at the level they are now and gradually reduce down to net zero carbon emissions by 2045 is part of an essential justice and equity equation. The developed nations created their wealth by producing the far greatest majority of all carbon emissions in the atmosphere today, thus causing almost all of our current global warming emergency. (See technical note 2 near the end of this page for more about justice and equity allowances.)

    Here are your annual personal, business and national fossil fuel reduction targets

    The above total targets break down to every person, every business, and every government in the developed world each year, reducing their total fossil fuel use by about 25% or more per year over the next six years. This will allow us to reach the most critical first 75% reduction target. Once we have reached that target successfully, we must then further reduce fossil fuel use at least another 10% per year over the next 10 years and before 2035. 

    If you are in a developing nation, you cannot increase your annual fossil fuel use at all. You also will need to begin reducing your fossil fuel use on the average by around 5-7 % per year for the next 26 years to hit your critical net zero emissions target by 2045. 

    What is essential to know is that these shockingly large amounts of required fossil fuel reductions and their soon arriving deadlines are absolutely critical immediately because our past and current reduction strategies have resulted in absolutely no effective level of the essential needed reductions in emissions from fossil fuel use. 

    Yes, we have been continually deceived about global warming reduction progress as well as the REAL fossil fuel reduction targets we should have started making each year beginning over 35 years ago.

    If you are in a developed country, here are some very important questions to ask yourself:

    How are you doing on reducing your total personal fossil fuel use this year by 25%?

    How is the business that you are working at doing in reducing its total annual fossil fuel use this year by 25%?

    How is your nation doing in reducing its total annual fossil fuel use by its 25% target for this year?

    It is critical to keep in mind that hitting the first six-year target is tantamount for avoiding the likelihood of entering the extinction process. Consequently, the greatest emphasis must be made to successfully reach this first target level.

    Please also keep in mind that for every year any individual, business or nation does not hit their targets, it causes their individual, business and national reduction targets for the following years to be increased accordingly.

    If you, your business or your nation is not making its targets, do not despair and do not beat yourself up. We have no time to waste for those kinds of activities.

    Here's what to do immediately if you're not hitting your annual targets:

    Click here part two of our Job One Plan to see what you can do today to start reducing your individual and business fossil fuel use.

    Click here to see part three of our Job One Plan to see what governments can do today to help us reduce our and their fossil fuel use. 

    If you are in a developing country, here are some very important questions to ask yourself:

    How are you doing on reducing your personal total annual fossil fuel use for this year to meet your target?

    How is the business that you are working at doing in reducing its total annual fossil fuel use for this year to meet their target?

    How is your nation doing in reducing its total annual fossil fuel use by its target for this year?

    It is critical to keep in mind that hitting your reduction targets is tantamount to avoid the likelihood of entering the extinction process. Please also keep in mind that for every year any individual, business or nation does not hit their targets, it causes their individual, business and national reduction targets for the following years to be increased accordingly.

    If you, your business or your nation is not making its targets, do not despair and do not beat yourself up. We have no time to waste for those kinds of activities.

    Here's what to do immediately if you're not hitting your annual targets:

    Click here part two of our Job One Plan to see what you can do today to start reducing your individual and business fossil fuel use.

    Click here to see part three of our Job One Plan to see what governments can do today to help us reduce our and their fossil fuel use. 

    What really happens if we miss these absolute minimum targets?

    If we miss these "must not fail" fossil fuel reduction targets, particularly the most important first 75% fossil fuel use reduction in developed countries by 2025 target, we are likely to go into an inescapable extinction progression that will not reverse itself for hundreds of years to centuries from now.

    In the simplest of terms, what happens if we miss these targets is that the worst consequences of global warming not only increase in severity, frequency, and scale, they come faster and faster until everything we depend upon in an organized society becomes unstable.

    If we fail to hit these targets, it is very likely that as much as 70 to 90% of humanity will suffer and die in as little as the next 30 to 50 years.

    We are now in a "succeed or die" final window of opportunity. We know this is a huge statement with unthinkable implications. We don't expect you to simply take our word for it, so we have provided you with the following links to the detailed science and analysis so that you too can see this soon-arriving extinction threat is absolutely REAL and, we are in fact, in a true emergency of the highest possible urgency.

    Please take a look at the extinction supporting science and analysis for yourself by clicking here.

    Once you've read that, you can then click here to learn about global warming's already progressing extinction timetables, processes and consequence chains, which we call the Climageddon Scenario.

    Again, if the idea that global warming can cause the extinction of most of humanity in the near future (the next 30-50 years,) seems unrealistic to you, this document and its selected links will point you to the research that will support this horrible looming thread and unpleasant but true reality. 

    What's really important to remember

    We also absolutely need to hit the above global fossil fuel reduction targets, because additionally, they will keep us from breaking through the very dangerous atmospheric carbon level and range of 425 to 450 parts per million (ppm.) We are at about carbon 411 ppm right now.

    Once we reach the carbon 425 to 450 ppm range, there will be so much climate system heating momentum from all of the previously emitted carbon and other greenhouse gas that this will propel us towards moving quickly to even higher temperatures. Stopping this momentum will be like trying to stop a gigantic boulder from rolling faster and faster down a hill that keeps getting steeper and steeper.

    The terrifying thought that is completely real and critical for you to burn into your mind is that, as much as 70 to 90% of humanity will suffer and die in as little as 30-50 years, but our ability to have any real or meaningful control over this looming emergency ends around about 2025 sometime after we enter the carbon 425-450 ppm range. But once again, this will only occur if we fail to successfully execute the now required global fossil fuel use reductions. 

    And in case you're still thinking technology will save us at the last minute, no new carbon removal technologies(what we call magical carbon sucking unicorns,) will be able to save us in time because, even those who believe this technology might save us are projecting that they will not even be available at the earliest until sometime after 2050. This will be long after the damage is done and long after anything can be done for the billions of people who will suffer and die!

    Because of the preceding, we truly have no other rational alternative other than to never cross over into the dangerous transitional range and the tipping point of carbon 425-450 ppm. What we do know with certainty is this. 

    In spite of all of the challenges and bad outcomes that are possible and in spite of the possibility of failing to hit our 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets, no matter what, the single constant and greatest truth for the best possible global warming outcomes for humanity in the future is that --- the faster and more we reduce global fossil fuel use:

    a. the larger the percentage of people will be that will not suffer or die over the next 30 to 50 years, and

    b. surviving future generations will suffer far less from an escalating chain of global warming consequences. (This is described fully in what is called the Climageddon extinction scenario.)

    If you don't think we can make these fossil fuel reduction targets, what you should know

    As the research and analysis verification links in this document reveal, there no longer is such thing as any program of gradual fossil fuel reduction being a viable alternative anymore. We squandered that option with our failure over the last 35 years to begin to effectively reduce fossil fuel use and consequently global warming.

    What we need to do now is radical, painful, and costly, but it is the price of our future if we want to have any future at all.

    Don't be fooled. This crisis is not far off in the future. This is not a problem for your children in their later life or for your grandchildren. It will affect you and your children. It is likely that within the next five-to-ten years we all will know if we are locked into the path of likely extinction, or if we have been able to salvage any habitable future for most of humanity for the second half of this 21st century and for the centuries to follow.  

    What this implies is that we will soon know if we are at the end of history and of everything every human has ever cared about. Gone then if we fail, is life, love, family, art, music, sexual intimacy, motherhood, and everything else.  

    We often hear conversation about the extinction of species. Failure to hit these reduction targets means the extinction of all of humanity is on-the-line --- right now! That is what is meant by we are having “a global warming or climate emergency.”

    This self-made suicidal tragedy is already affecting hundreds of millions of people around the world and, over the next 10 to 30 years it's just going to get worse faster and faster unless we all come together and in priority:

    1. get our governments to execute the absolutely critical radical fossil fuel reducing actions of Part 3 of the Job One Plan.

    2. get ourselves and our businesses to execute the radical annual fossil fuel cuts listed above as described in Part 2 of our Job One Plan

    Are you going to do your part to make those needed fossil fuel reductions happen? 

    Your and your children's immediate future depends upon the choices you make right now about how to face and deal with the above critical fossil fuel use reductions.

    Stop thinking that there is ANY time left to make gradual or comfortable fossil fuel reductions. Never forget that only the radical fossil fuel reductions described in this document will slow down the coming global warming consequences enough to have a fair chance to prevent our extinction.

    We will either succeed together or we die together!

    At this point, you're probably feeling a bit overwhelmed by what you have read and the enormity of the challenge for what we must do to survive. You may have also reached the point of saying the level of reductions required are impossible or, the task is so large with such a low probability of success, why even try. The following story should help you deal with those ideas.

    A wise Chinese general was cornered at the banks of a large river by an opposing army at least 20 times larger than his own. His only means of escape was to get his army across the river before they were attacked. This general had also previously placed enough boats on the bank of the river for escape with his army should that need arise.

    As the larger army approached, pushing the smaller army closer to the river, this general gave the order to his most trusted lieutenants to rush to the boats and burn them. When his army saw their only means of escape was being destroyed, they became wildly angry and charged toward the general. The army demanded to know why their trusted general had burned their escape boats and condemned all of them to certain death at the hands of a vastly superior army. 

    The general calmly said, “We will win this battle or we will die. There is no other alternative and no escape.” 

    His army now knew their only option was victory or death. Filled with such clarity and single-mindedness of purpose, they fought with such reckless intensity, they defeated the opposing army 20 times their size. 

    Now that you better understand the rapidly approaching extinction consequences of our global warming emergency from the science and analysis in the links above, you too should no longer retain any illusion of any long-term escape for you or your family, business or nation from immense suffering and likely extinction --- if we do not deal with the reality of this emergency. 

    What you also may not have realized yet, is that our 35-year failure to have previously started effective fossil fuel usage reductions means that we too, in effect, have already burned our escape boats! Because of this, like like the Chinese army, we either win or we die.

    This is the perilous and sad point that we have come to because of our inaction and ineffectiveness in addressing global warming and the required fossil fuel reductions for almost 35 years. 

    The good news is if we act wisely cooperatively and immediately to radically cut fossil fuel use to the above targets, humanity and civilization will have a chance to continue. 

    So what do you have to lose? What rational alternative do you have than to act immediately to radically reduce your personal fossil fuel use? What legitimate excuse is there for you to not to help us get our governments to enforce the required radical fossil fuel reductions by the necessary deadlines and that only governments can achieve? 

    The reality is, failure is no longer a conscionable option.

     

    More technical facts and foot notes affecting the REAL required fossil fuel reductions described in A and B at the top of this document 

    The following information is for those of you fellow researchers and techies who want more detail behind the calculations and factors involved in the fossil fuel reduction targets listed at the top of the page.

    Here are the additional facts and factors: 

    1. To make the above fossil fuel reduction calculation work to save humanity from extinction, both China and India can no longer be considered or treated developing nations. They must be required to immediately begin making the same fossil fuel reduction targets as all other developed nations because at this time they are producing far too much of the world's total carbon emissions. 

    China is already the worlds largest fossil fuel polluter. If they are not put into the same required reduction category as the other developed nations, there will be no credible way to hit the necessary fossil fuel reduction targets and avoid the likelihood of extinction.

    2. Because there is no effective international agreement on climate justice regarding the exact differences in required fossil fuel reductions between developed and developing nations, all that exists today considering equity and existing global warming treaty responsibilities is the usually ignored and unenforceable UNFCCC treaty.

    This is the treaty most of the world signed and ratified and whose operating principles began with “Parties should protect the climate system for the benefit of present and future generations of humankind, on the basis of equity and in accordance with their common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities.” The problem here is there is no sufficiently detailed treaty agreement which specifies the proportionate remedial responsibilities based on who did the damage or the specifically required differences in fossil fuel reductions that each developed or developing country must make.

    To make matters worse, the US and many other nations are currently not abiding by fossil fuel reduction treaties. Additionally, in the existing UNFCC treaty, there are no verification, punishment or enforcement capabilities. 

    Due to the nature of this emergency, to resolve these inadequacies and the inadequacies of past Global warming treaties and agreements, it was necessary to independently come up with at least something true, workable and just that could be put into action immediately, where developing nations were given far less initial fossil fuel reduction requirements and a longer time to reach net zero carbon emissions. In short, the reductions mentioned above are REAL and necessary and can work to avert the extinction threat.

    3. Having carbon neutrality, or a net zero carbon footprint means achieving net zero carbon emissions by balancing any measured amounts of carbon dioxide C02 released into the atmosphere with an equivalent measured amount of carbon dioxide taken from the atmosphere and being captured for long-term storage (see carbon sequestration). In the Job One Plan, this carbon capture and sequestration(CCS) should happen almost exclusively through our already-existing natural biological, chemical, and physical processes. (See this definition of global warming for illustrations on how the climate’s heat controlling systems and processes handle carbon capture and sequestration among other things).

    Net zero carbon emissions by 2035 or sooner for developed nations and 2045 or sooner for developing nations is a difficult subgoal to achieve. It will also require that strong financial disincentives be placed on fossil fuel use and by keeping almost all of existing fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas, tar sands, etc.) in the ground and never burned. While doing this we will also have to be heavily incentivizing natural carbon sequestration methods as discussed in Part 3 of the Job One Plan.

    4. These reduction calculations do not include any of the false and grossly misleading carbon capture technology calculations currently being used in all international fossil fuel reduction treaties and by all governments. These governmental calculations utilize detailed compensatory calculation for the miraculous unproven carbon removing effects of negative technologies (NETs,) which our governments postulate will hopefully be discovered and put into operation sometime after 2150, yet at the same time, somehow have to be in a massive deployment soon so they can meet national reduction targets by 2025 and 2035. NETs are carbon capture technologies that are projected to keep global temperature below 2°C by removing to about 100 gigatons of carbon from the atmosphere at a workable scale without any disastrous even worse side effects. Nets are also sometimes called BECCS (bio-energy with carbon capture and storage. (To get an idea of how big this problem really is, consider that 1 Gigatonne or metric gigaton (unit of mass) is equal to 1,000,000,000 metric tons. 100 gigatons would equal 100 billion metric tons or 100,000,000,000 metric tons.)

    The belief and current reliance upon these magical "carbon sucking unicorns" (as we call them) allow the government's of the world today to foist the current bogus carbon reduction targets upon their populations, which then allow fossil fuel industries and fossil fuel producing nations to continue with "business as usual" and the rest of the society to believe there is no emergency or urgency regarding the real and hidden fossil fuel reduction amounts. Click here for the whole crazy story about how these magical carbon sucking unicorns will save us at the last possible moment and, at the same time keep the fossil fuel industry rolling in profits for another 30-50 years. 

    5. The above reduction calculations do not include any extra reduction percentage or calculation for the massive spikes in carbon and methane emissions that will occur when we closely approach or cross additional global warming tipping points. To be really safe, these percentages for fossil fuel emissions reduction should actually be significantly higher by another 10-15% to allow for approaching or crossing more global warming tipping points. Not allowing any fossil fuel reduction compensatory calculations for any tipping point issues amounts to planning for perfection. Planning for perfection is always planning to fail. Click hereto learn more about the tipping points that will suddenly release massive additional amounts of carbon and methane into the atmosphere. 

    6. The above reduction calculations do not include any extra fossil fuel reduction percentage or calculation for the long history of governmental underestimation of needed reductions because of national political or economic conditions or advantages. Click hereto learn how big these underestimation problems have been. 

    7. The reduction calculations above are based on current and projected carbon CO2 levels in the atmosphere provided by the United Nations. They do not show the total levels of all greenhouse gases now in our atmosphere as tracked by CO2e. (CO2e measures all greenhouse gases in our atmosphere.)

    Because the calculations above also do not include the necessary reductions for methane and the other greenhouse gases as tracked by CO2e, the reduction calculations above probably should also be increased by another 2 to 4%. This additional 2 to 4% reduction would in part allow for the factor that methane is 86 times more potent for increasing global warming than carbon as Co2 in our atmosphere. As shocking as it sounds, methane releases into the atmosphere from fracking or natural gas distribution is seldom measured or regulated by countries around the world, including the US.

    8. The above fossil fuel reduction targets also do not include the fossil fuel emissions currently produced by all import-export activities between nations. These are significant because of ocean cargo ships, trains planes and other methods used for international import-export transport produce a lot all fossil fuel emissions. For some reason which defies logic, those scientists charged by the governments to measure and regulate fossil fuel emissions have carved out a political exemption for measuring or regulating this particular type of emission, which could be up to 2 % of the world's total fossil fuel emissions.

    9. Once we get to net zero carbon emissions by 2035 for the developed nations, and 2045 for the developing nations we still aren't safe. There is much left to get done to restore our climate's long term natural atmospheric carbon balance at around carbon 270-300 ppm. 

    10.  Net zero carbon emissions from fossil fuel use by 2035 could allow for a very small amount of fossil fuel use for agriculture and medical uses.

    11. The Job One Plan or any other legitimate plans for achieving net zero carbon emissions also do not endorse Cap and Trademethods of arriving at net zero carbon and carbon-neutrality through offset schemes. Current Cap and Trade methods are too often a disguise for “business as usual” and will not get us to the radical fossil fuel reduction levels we need in the extremely limited time left to keep us from crossing the carbon 600 ppm extinction tipping point. In Job One’s own targeted version of getting to carbon-neutrality, we use a method called  Fee and Dividend(discussed in part three of our Job One Plan.) In our plan, you will not be able to buy Cap and Trade carbon creditsto make up the difference and achieve net zero carbon emissions through buying offsets because that inevitablypromotes more fossil fuel burning.

    12. Here are the links to the two videos by climate Prof. Kevin Anderson discussing the REAL fossil fuel reduction calculations needed. Click herefor the first professor Anderson video. Click Herefor the second professor Anderson video.

    And the final shocker, the above critical fossil fuel reduction amounts are probably significantly lower than they should be

    The above fossil fuel reduction amounts described in points a and b at the top of the page are definitely minimum critical starting reduction amounts. In fact, based on numerous uncalculated key factors and conditions described in 1-11 above, they should be significantly higher.

    Based on the best current science from climate Professors like Kevin Anderson, the targets and deadlines above at least, are far closer to what we must do, and we have to start somewhere. These new working fossil fuel reduction percentages and deadlines based on both good science and climate justice must now replace our current ridiculously impotent governmental and IPCC (UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) global warming reduction targets and deadlines.

    Furthermore, if we really wanted to be completely safe and if we took into consideration all of the other calculation mistakes and inclusion or exclusion factors listed above that were not considered in the reduction targets above in a and b, we probably should be targeting an 80 to 85% fossil fuel reduction in all developed nations by 2025 (or earlier,) and a complete reduction to net zero carbon in all developed nations by around 2032 or earlier. Similar greater fossil fuel reduction adjustments also would need to be made for the reduction targets in developing nations that would be aligned with what was adjusted and re-targeted for developed nations.

    It's time to get busy on the Job One for Humanity Planto immediately start radically reducing your personal, business and national fossil fuel use.

  • A spiritual take on the global warming emergency and growing likelihood of a Climageddon type extinction event

    There is only a marginal amount of room for optimism as we engage the global warming crisis that is speeding toward us.

    Image result for photos of concerned people

    We have, at best, a mere 10 years before it will be too late to avoid many of the most serious consequences of this emergency. And, even then we will need a certain amount of luck.

    But for those of us who wish to take a more spiritual perspective on such things, there is another hopeful avenue that seems worthy of at least some consideration.

    Every world religion encompasses, within its own sacred writings and/or in more modern-day pronouncements of its leaders, the idea of Man’s responsibility for God’s Creation. Moving beyond mere responsibility, humanity at its best and most aware understands the deep interconnections between us and Nature. Just as we depend upon clean air and water, safe and adequate food supplies, and energy from God’s creation, so that creation, in turn, depends upon us for its continued ability to support us. This implies a stewardship responsibility that ensures we don’t use resources faster than they can be renewed naturally.

    This realization leads to an understanding that must be at the core of any spiritual approach to dealing with the global warming emergency that looms before us. As long as we believe that we are separate from Creation or, worse yet, destined to use what we need from Nature without regard for its impact on other creatures, we will find it difficult to be motivated to pay any serious attention to global warming. But the Truth is, we are not separate from Creation; indeed, we are an integral part of the Creation mythology that exists in all major religions. And that Creation is a deeply embedded part of who we are as well.

    We know that, at some level at least, God — by whatever name we know It — is in charge and is always inclined toward good. That does not mean, however, that we can simply turn the global warming emergency over to God and brush our hands of the entire matter. There is an old Islamic folk saying: “Trust Allah, but tie your camel.” In other words, let go and let God, but only after you’ve done all that you can. Within the Universe Community that lies behind this book and the work it undertakes, we have clear priorities. We will fully prepare for the worst, then forget about those preparations while we then focus and wholeheartedly work for the best!

    What, then, are some specific ways in which spiritually-inclined individuals can contribute to the solution to the global warming emergency beyond those recommended in this book?

    First, on a personal level, we can pray, meditate, contemplate, and visualize, applying the spiritual power of whatever our individual belief systems teach as effective applications of Divine energy to any problem. This may include praying for world leaders as well as the world’s wealthiest individuals and corporations to awaken to the imminent danger facing the planet as well as for the general enlightenment of humanity to activate the centers of Compassion that all religions teach us are central to our nature.

    Second, we can help organize our local, regional, and national religious establishments and communities to speak up and present the important values of the spiritual viewpoint that is so often lacking in public debate and discussion on this and other pressing issues. Particularly in the United States, with its First Amendment ban on any formal connection between religion and government, there is a tendency to try to separate politics from religion even when doing so makes governing more difficult or outcomes worse. We need to get beyond that.

    Finally, we can get involved with Job One for Humanity.org in combating global warming. This organization, after all, has deeply spiritual roots even though we’ve chosen to minimize their visible influence in the interest of broadening the appeal of our critical message. Job One for Humanity grew out of the organization called Universe Spirit, which has the broader agenda of applying spiritual principles to sustainable prosperity in all of its many manifestations.

    It is important to note that science and metaphysics today are converging around the idea that we humans can and must begin to engage in conscious evolution rather than allowing things to take their natural course. To do this requires paying attention on both mental and spiritual levels as we engage the world around us in an effort to understand the enemy, global warming, and ultimately defeat it.

    There is hope. There is always hope. But hope doesn’t solve problems; people taking action because they have hope is what solves problems. I hope and pray that your spirituality is in alignment with the needs of the Earth for consciously evolved humans to take the lead in rescuing ourselves from likely extinction and the planet from massive alteration. Together with the Power of the Divine, we can do it!

  • The 5 most important (and shocking) global warming facts that can save your life, business, and loved ones!

    A summary of the 5 most important global warming facts: 

    Introduction

    This article not only sums up the most important things to know about global warming, but it also simplifies the core message of our website. It is intended to assist mature and intelligent individuals to review difficult but accurate global warming facts so that they may better adapt and adjust their lives accordingly.

    For many individuals, the 5 most important facts about global warming will dramatically upend their current beliefs about global warming as well as what is being done about it.

    You will soon learn that there are many critical things that need to be done by our governments concerning global warming which are not being done. Luckily, there are still important things you can individually do to protect yourself and your loved ones. (This will be described near the end of this article.)

    There is good news too. We can still cooperate to slow global warming down and we can still have rich and meaningful lives while we do our best to manage what we still can.

    Please do not believe that we are asking you to blindly believe the following 5 facts without also reviewing the provided links to the science and analysis which supports the validity of each fact. We sincerely challenge you to also review the expanded explanations for each fact and each fact's linked documentation (found just below the summary of 5 facts,) and then come to your own conclusions.

    A summary of the 5 most important and shocking global warming facts: 

    Fact 1: We are not being told the painful truth by our governments, our intelligence agencies or even our biggest environmental groups about how bad global warming currently is, but more importantly, how bad it's going to get in the near future.

    Fact 2: Because of our long 35-year delay in fixing this crisis, many global warming consequences are not only going to be far worse than we are being told, they also are coming far sooner than we are being told.

    Fact 3: Because of this long delay, we have, unfortunately, missed a critical "window of opportunity" to effectively manage global warming to prevent most of its worst consequences and crossed tipping points from occurring. (Many of the worst consequences are now unavoidable and near-certainly out of our meaningful control for as long as the next 30-50 years.)

    Fact 4: If we act correctly and immediately to radically and immediately reduce global fossil fuel us, we may still have a small amount of time (until 2025,) to slow down (delay) the worst of these now unavoidable global warming consequences just enough to protect ourselves and maximize our collective chances of avoiding extinction. (If we make the required radical global fossil fuel reductions by 2025, it is still possible to prevent most of humanity (as much as 70-90%,) suffering and dying (in as little as 30-50 years.) 

    Fact 5: Because there is no guarantee that we will act any differently than we have for the last 35 years to slow down global warming sufficiently to prevent our fast track to extinction, it is time for rational, wise, and mature individuals to begin creating emergency backup plans and start their personal emergency preparations. This emergency preparation could even include migrating to areas that would be safer from the effects of global warming.

    In the expanded 5 fact explanations below, you will find more positive news. At the very end of this document, you will also find important tips on how to better psychologically and emotionally digest this new reality of global warming.

    The expanded 5 most important global warming facts with their verification and action links

    Fact 1: We are not being told the painful truth by our governments, our intelligence agencies or even our biggest environmental groups about how bad global warming currently is and more importantly, how bad it's going to get in the near future.

    These falsehoods about global warming will increasingly cause extreme suffering and loss to larger and larger percentages of humanity. In part, these false statements exist because there have been numerous government underestimation errors and intentionally inappropriate and incomplete calculations concerning the necessary fossil fuel reduction targets given to the public.

    There has also been significant deception regarding the real consequences of the current escalating global warming. This government-sponsored inaccurate information creates the false belief that things are better than they really are.

    This also makes us believe that we are making sufficient and steady progress in reducing global warming when the hard truth is we are not. To make this point even more alarmingly clear, more than half of all fossil fuel emissions have been generated and released in the last 25 years and stored in the atmosphere than in all of recorded history before that.

    Therefore, even though we have known, with little doubt that we needed to reduce fossil fuel emissions dramatically, and we had International treaties since at least 1993 saying we would do so, we are about 67% higher worldwide in carbon emissions than the early 1990s. And fossil fuel emissions increased another dramatic 2.7% in 2018, and they are projected to increase again in 2019

    We are not anywhere even close to where we should be in fossil fuel use reductions to save us from unthinkable climate catastrophes and extinction.

    Click here to review the intentional inappropriate or incomplete global government supported calculations used to create the false belief that things are far better than they really are.

     

    Something to think about once you have read the above documentation links on the underestimation, and inappropriate or incomplete calculations:

    a. Can you imagine what the reasons might be for why our governments and their intelligence agencies would publically give us and support such grossly underestimated global warming threat assessments and inadequate solutions when the actual threat is so much more severe?

    b. Who (what types of individuals, government departments and corporations,) would benefit most by providing such false and grossly misleading information to the public?

    Click here to see the REAL global fossil fuel reduction levels we must hit by 2025. You will be stunned!

    Fact 2: Because of our long delay in fixing this crisis, many global warming consequences are not only going to be far worse than we are being told, they also are coming far sooner than we are being told.

    The worst consequences of global warming will not be occurring around 2100 as we are now being told by our governments. They will be starting to occur as soon as the next 10 to 30 years in a continually worsening cycle.

    Click here for the worst cataclysmic consequences derived from global warming tipping points that will also continue to increase in severity, frequency, and scale. (Crossing more major global warming tipping points also produces additional, unique and hyper-intense extinction-evoking consequences.)

    Click here to see the real time frames in which the many worst global warming consequences will be unfolding.

    Fact 3: Because of this long delay, we have, unfortunately, missed a critical "window of opportunity" to effectively manage global warming to prevent most of its worst consequences and crossed tipping points from occurring. (Many of the worst consequences are now unavoidable and near-certainly out of our meaningful control for as long as the next 30-50 years.)

    In part, this is because the real facts and true urgency was hidden from us about the global warming crisis by our governments and the fossil fuel industry. We did not do what was necessary to resolve global warming over the last 35 years after we were informed about it by our scientists. We have squandered the time that could have been used while the cure was still manageable.

    Saddest of all, we are still trying to do far too little far too late. Had we started fixing global warming gradually and effectively 35  years ago, we would still have had a good chance of doing so now. 

    In part, what out of meaningful control means is that average global temperatures will continue increasing for at least another 50 years and there will be a series of cataclysmic consequences and more extinction-evoking global warming tipping points will be crossed that can not be stopped or avoided! 

    Click here to see review the many reasons why global warming is now out of control for at least the next 50 years and a series of cataclysmic consequences and extinction-evoking tipping points cannot at this point be stopped or avoided! 

    Below please find the best estimates for time frames in which average global temperatures will continue to increase for at least another 50 years.

    Click here to see how the global warming consequences and tipping points will unfold in what's called the Climageddon Scenario.

    Fact 4: If we act correctly and immediately to radically and immediately reduce global fossil fuel us, we may still have a small amount of time (until 2025,) to slow down (delay) the worst of these now unavoidable global warming consequences just enough to protect ourselves and maximize our collective chances of avoiding extinction. (If we make the required radical global fossil fuel reductions by 2025, it is still possible to prevent most of humanity (as much as 70-90%,) suffering and dying (in as little as 30-50 years.) 

    Because we have squandered our last 35 years of warnings with denial, inaction, and ineffective action we can't stop what is coming and what is already locked into our climate system. But luckily, we can still aggressively try to slow down the now unavoidable consequences so that, at least we can salvage whatever we can.

    We slow down what is coming and prepare for it by:

    A. immediately and radically reducing our fossil fuel use to the correct reduction levels. 

    The absolute minimum amount we need to reduce fossil fuel use to slow and prevent the processes of likely going extinct is as follows:

    a. All industrially developed nations must reduce their total fossil fuel use by 75 percent by 2025 and then continue reducing fossil fuel use to net zero carbon emissions by 2035. (This means that no additional fossil fuel emissions are going into the atmosphere that are not also simultaneously being removed from the atmosphere.) There are only about 20 countries that produce 70% or more of the world's carbon emissions. This means that all individuals and businesses within the developing nations of the world must meet these fossil fuel reduction goals. (Net zero carbon emissions from fossil fuel use by 2035 could allow for a very small amount of fossil fuel use for agriculture and medical uses.)

    b. All developing nations must maintain their total fossil fuel emission levels as they are at the beginning of 2019 and not allow them to go any higher. Then by 2045, all developing nations must also be at net zero carbon emissions. This allowance for developing nations to stay at the level they are now and gradually reduce down to net zero carbon emissions by 2045 is a justice equation. The developing nations have created their wealth by producing the far greatest majority of all the carbon emissions in the atmosphere today causing our global warming emergency. 

    To make the above fossil fuel reduction calculation work to save humanity from extinction, both China and India can no longer be considered developing nations. They must be required to immediately begin making the same fossil fuel reduction targets as all other developed nations. At this time China and India are producing far too much of the world's total carbon emissions. If they are not put into the same reduction category as the other developed nations, there will be no credible way to avoid the likelihood of extinction.

    Additionally, because there is no effective international agreement on relative climate justice regarding the exact differences in required fossil fuel reductions between developed and developing nations. All that exists today considering equity and existing global warming treaty responsibilities is the usually ignored and unenforceable UNFCCC treaty.

    This is the treaty most of the world signed and ratified and whose operating principles began with “Parties should protect the climate system for the benefit of present and future generations of humankind, on the basis of equity and in accordance with their common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities.” The problem is there is no sufficiently detailed treaty agreement which specifies the proportionate remedial responsibilities based on who did the damage or the specifically required differences in fossil fuel reductions that each developed or developing country must make. 

    To make matters worse the US and many other nations do not abide by treaties anyway. Additionally, in the existing UNFCC treaty, there are no verification, punishment or enforcement capabilities. Due to the nature of this emergency, to resolve these inadequacies it was necessary to come up with at least something workable and just that could be put into action immediately, where developing nations were given far less initial fossil fuel reduction requirements and a longer time to reach net zero carbon emissions. In short, the reductions mentioned above are necessary and will work.

    Other important facts about these required fossil fuel reductions. 

    1. The above shockingly large and radical amounts of fossil fuel reductions and soon arriving deadlines are absolutely needed because our past and current strategy has resulted in absolutely no reduction in emissions or fossil fuel use. Yes, you read that right and yes, you have been lied to about global warming reduction progress having been made. In fact, we have actually increased fossil fuel use more this century than the last two decades of the 20th century. 

    To make this point even more alarmingly clear, more than half of all fossil fuel emissions have been generated and released in the last 25 years and stored in the atmosphere than in all of recorded history before that. Therefore, even though we have known, with little doubt that we needed to reduce fossil fuel emissions dramatically, and we had International treaties since at least 1993 saying we would do so, we are about 67% higher worldwide in carbon emissions than the early 1990s. And fossil fuel emissions increased another dramatic 2.7% in 2018, and they are projected to increase again in 2019.

    2. These calculations do not include any of the false and grossly misleading carbon capture technology calculations currently being used in all International fossil fuel reduction treaties and by all governments. These governmental calculations utilize detailed compensatory calculation for the effects of negative admission technologies (NETs,) which our governments postulate will hopefully be discovered and put into operation sometime after 2150. NETs are man-made carbon capture technologies that are projected to remove an immense amount of gigatons of carbon from the atmosphere at scale without any disastrous even worse side effects.

    The belief and current reliance upon these magical carbon sucking unicorns (as we call them) allow the government's of the world today to foist bogus carbon reduction targets upon their populations which then allow fossil fuel industries and fossil fuel producing nations to continue with "business as usual" and the rest of the society to believe there is no emergency or urgency regarding the real and hidden fossil fuel reduction amounts. Click here for the whole crazy story about how these magical carbon sucking unicorns will magically save us at the last possible moment and, at the same time keep the fossil fuel industry rolling in profits for another 30-50 years.  

    3. If we miss these fossil fuel reduction targets, particularly the most important first 75% 2025 target we are likely to go into an extinction progression cycle that will not reverse itself for hundreds of years to centuries from now. If we fail, as much as 70 to 90% of humanity will suffer and die in as little as the next 30 to 50 years. To learn about this extinction progression cycle we call the Climageddon Scenario and why it is likely if we miss our radical fossil fuel reduction targets, click here.

    4. Job One’s use of the term carbon neutrality, or having a net zero carbon footprint, means achieving net zero carbon emissions by balancing any measured amounts of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere with an equivalent measured amount of carbon dioxide taken from the atmosphere and being captured for long-term storage (see carbon sequestration). In the Job One Plan, this critical carbon capture and sequestration should happen almost exclusively through our already-existing natural biological, chemical, and physical processes (see this definition of global warming for illustrations of the climate’s heat controlling systems and processes). Net zero carbon emissions by 2035 for developed missions in 2045 for developing nations is a difficult subgoal to achieve. It will require that financial disincentives be placed on fossil fuel use and keeping almost all of existing fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas, tar sands, etc.) in the ground and never burned. 

    Please note that the Job One Plan for achieving net zero carbon emissions does not endorse Cap and Trade methods of arriving at carbon-neutral. Current Cap and Trade methods are too often a disguise for “business as usual” and will not get us to the radical fossil fuel reduction levels we need in the extremely limited time left to keep us from crossing carbon 600 ppm extinction tipping point. In Job One’s own targeted version of carbon-neutral called Fee and Dividend (discussed further below,) you will not be able to buy Cap and Trade carbon credits to make up the difference and achieve net zero carbon emissions because that inevitably promotes more fossil fuel burning.

    4. The above calculations do not include any extra reduction percentage or calculation for the massive spikes in carbon and methane emissions that will occur when we closely approach or cross additional global warming tipping points. To be safe, these percentages for fossil fuel emissions reduction should actually be significantly higher (10-15%,) to allow for approaching or crossing more global warming tipping points. Not allowing any fossil fuel reduction compensation for any tipping points in the above calculations amounts to planning for perfection using one variable. Planning for perfection is another way to plan fo fail. Click here to learn more about the tipping points it will suddenly release massive additional amounts of carbon and methane into the atmosphere. 

    5. The above calculations do not include any extra fossil fuel reduction percentage or calculation for the long history of governmental underestimation of needed reductions by huge percentages because of national political or economic conditions or advantages. Click here to learn how big these underestimation problems have been. 

    6. Each year we continue to delay in making the needed radical fossil fuel reductions mentioned above means that any fossil fuel reductions in the subsequent target years will also need to be even more extreme to compensate for the previous years miss targets. This makes them even less likely to be done because of the even more severe economic and other hardships that they will impose globally.

    7. Once we get to net zero carbon emissions by 2035 for the developed nations and 2045 for the developing nations we still aren't safe and there is much left to get done to restore our climate's natural balance at around 270 carbon PPM. 

    8. The calculations above are based on current and projected carbon CO2 levels in the atmosphere provided by the United Nations. They do not show the total levels of all greenhouse gases now in our atmosphere as tracked by CO2e. Because the calculations above also do not include the necessary reductions for methane and the other greenhouse gases as tracked by CO2e, the reduction calculations above probably should also be increased by another 2 to 4%. This additional 2 to 4% reduction would in part allow for the factor that methane is 86 times more potent for increasing global warming than carbon as co2 in our atmosphere. As shocking as it sounds, methane releases into the atmosphere from fracking or natural gas distribution is seldom measured or regulated by countries around the world including the US.

    9. Here are the links to two videos by climate Prof. Kevin Anderson discussing the fossil fuel reduction calculations needed as described in A and B above. Click heref or the first professor Anderson video. Click Here for the second professor Anderson video.

    And finally, the above fossil fuel reduction amounts described in points a and b above are definitely minimum reduction amounts. In fact, they should be significantly higher (based on numerous uncalculated key factors described above and elsewhere on this page.) 

    Based on the best current science from climate Professors like Kevin Anderson, the targets and deadlines above are at least far closer to what we must do and, we have to start somewhere. These new working percentages and deadlines based on both science and climate justice must now replace our current governmental global warming reduction targets and deadlines which were agreed to at the Paris 2015 International climate conference. 

    If we really wanted to be safe and we took in all of the other factors above that were not considered in the calculation above in a and b, we probably should be targeting an 80 to 85% fossil fuel reduction in all developed nations by 2025 or earlier and complete reduction to net zero carbon in all developed nations by around 2032. Similar adjustments would need to be made for the fossil fuel reduction targets in developing nations that would be aligned with what was just re-targeted for developed nations.

    B. instituting a government-directed "in-case we fail"backup plan.(With this government-directed failsafe and backup plan we may still be able to save and salvage enough of humanity and civilization in case we once again delay and deny and fail to reduce fossil fuel emissions adequately.)

    Click here to see what exactly what those radical fossil fuel reductions entail and what the government directed failsafe backup plan preparations must be.

    Martin Luther King said something that is equally applicable today to the urgency of slowing down global warming enough so that at least some of humanity and civilization will go on.

    “We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time... We must move past indecision to [immediate] action.” 

    Fact 5: Because there is still no guarantee that we will act any differently than we have for the last 35 years to slow down global warming sufficiently to prevent a fast track to extinction, it is time for rational, wise and mature individuals to begin creating emergency backup plans and start their personal emergency preparations. This emergency preparation could even include migrating to areas that would be safer from the effects of global warming.

    It is unwise to rely exclusively or primarily on our governments as this emergency worsens. They will never be able to reach and care for every citizen.

    Having a personal plan and preparations is how you will be able to save and salvage as much of your personal life and your loved ones as is possible. This plan and prepare action is critical because most individuals and businesses are currently nowhere even close to being prepared for the severity of the unavoidable catastrophic consequences that are arriving soon.

     

    Additionally, because of the high probability of as much as 70 to 90 percent of humanity suffering and dying within the global warming unsafe zones within as little as the next 30 to 50 years, it is critical to begin now to prepare your own personal Plan B and emergency backup plan.

    This emergency plan and preparation is particularly important if you also happen to live in one of the global warming unsafe zones. If so, your personal back up plan would also have to include migration from global warming unsafe zones to global warming safer zones before it is too late. 

    The time remaining in which to make these personal emergency preparations or to migrate to the limited global warming safe zones is exceedingly short because of factors like immigration regulations in the global warming safe zones already becoming more restricted as well as future legal immigration becoming all but impossible as the emergency worsens. If you look closely, you can already see many areas of our overheating world where what will soon be called the greatest migration in human history of climagees has already begun. (Global warming climate crisis-related refugees are called climagees.)

    Click here to learn about your needed personal emergency preparations and the factors behind the short timeframes for people living in global warming unsafe zones to assemble their emergency plan B preparations and migrate to safer zones. These Plan B personal emergency preparations will also include information on how you can physically, emotionally thrive and survive through the waves of economic, social and political trauma as well as the physical loss, and suffering that is coming.

    A bit more good news

    The good news here is that no matter what, even in spite of how difficult this emergency is and will become, we can still cooperate to slow it down and have good and meaningful lives for as long as is possible.

    With the information in the links above, you are now better...

    What's really important to remember

    We also absolutely need to hit the above global fossil fuel reduction targets, because additionally, they will keep us from breaking through the very dangerous atmospheric carbon level and range of 425 to 450 parts per million (ppm.) We are at about carbon 411 ppm right now.

    Once we reach the carbon 425 to 450 ppm range, there will be so much climate system heating momentum from all of the previously emitted carbon and other greenhouse gas that this will propel us towards moving quickly to even higher temperatures. Stopping this momentum will be like trying to stop a gigantic boulder from rolling faster and faster down a hill that keeps getting steeper and steeper.

    The terrifying thought that is completely real and critical for you to burn into your mind is that, as much as 70 to 90% of humanity will suffer and die in as little as 30-50 years, but our ability to have any real or meaningful control over this looming emergency ends around about 2025 sometime after we enter the carbon 425-450 ppm range. But once again, this will only occur if we fail to successfully execute the now required global fossil fuel use reductions. 

    And in case you're still thinking technology will save us at the last minute, no new carbon removal technologies(what we call magical carbon sucking unicorns,) will be able to save us in time because, even those who believe this technology might save us are projecting that they will not even be available at the earliest until sometime after 2050. This will be long after the damage is done and long after anything can be done for the billions of people who will suffer and die!

    Because of the preceding, we truly have no other rational alternative other than to never cross over into the dangerous transitional range and the tipping point of carbon 425-450 ppm. What we do know with certainty is this. 

    In spite of all of the challenges and bad outcomes that are possible and in spite of the possibility of failing to hit our 2025 fossil fuel reduction targets, no matter what, the single constant and greatest truth for the best possible global warming outcomes for humanity in the future is that --- the faster and more we reduce global fossil fuel use:

    a. the larger the percentage of people will be that will not suffer or die over the next 30 to 50 years, and

    b. surviving future generations will suffer far less from an escalating chain of global warming consequences. (This is described fully in what is called the Climageddon extinction scenario.)

    What's next to consider?

    1. Be sure to check out the 4 most important and scariest deadlines of the global warming emergency by clicking here.

    2. Some of you have already reviewed the supporting science and analysis links provided above and you will soon begin the fossil fuel reduction actions and other solution options also found within the links above. Well done! You will reap the benefits. 

    3. Some of you will not or did not review the science and analysis verification links. This avoidance may only provide a brief escape from the discomfort of knowing the difficult facts listed above are true as well as acting appropriately using this information. Over time, as you watch the worsening news reports about the destabilization of our climate, the five facts above will begin to ring true and hopefully, you will remember this page so that you and your loved ones will know what to do.

    If you're feeling fearful, upset, in denial, angry or anxious about what you have read

    We have given you a lot of horrible news to digest. When we discovered this information at Job One for Humanity our staff also had to digest this horrible news. By necessity, we learned about something called the Kubler Ross model of change to help us deal with all of the strong emotions the above news evokes. 

    Because we Felt it would be irresponsible to leave you without tools to manage the feelings that the proceeding facts create, we are also leaving you the following images and ideas that should stage by stage help you come to terms with the new reality of global warming. Here's how these emotional transitions normally look.

    1. Even if you are a wise, mature and healthy individual, if you're like most people, what you just read will cause you to react with shock and denial and other difficult emotions. 

     

    2. If you have the tenacity to keep learning more concerning the validity of the 5 facts described above, you will likely next become frustrated and angry at "how could we (our politicians and governments,) ever allow this to happen."

    3. If you still continue processing the facts above, you will most likely then enter into a bargaining or experimenting phase to find some kind of a way to deal with such disturbing and disruptive information.

    4. If you still continue researching and verifying what you read, you will most likely next enter into a transitional feeling of grief or depression. 

    5. As you work your way through your grief or depression, you will eventually come to a level of acceptance of what is scientifically accurate, but currently is being widely suppressedby the fossil fuel industry, mass media, and the many politicians around the world owned by the fossil fuel industry.

    Once you finally reach the level of acceptance for what you have read above, you may likely begin the process of experimenting with new ways to live more sustainably and you will likely begin making new decisions to adapt and integrate this critical information into your life and businesses in other ways. You may also begin emergency preparations for the unavoidable and unconscionable global warming consequences described in the links above so that you are better able to protect yourself and maximize the chances of staying out of harm's way.

    The 5 main emotional transition levels above are key parts of the Kubler Ross model. Over time, it will help you understand and deal with the global warming denial, anger, fear, grief or anxiety any healthy person would experience once they truly realize the truth of what we are saying and how dire our current situation really is.

    Even though the Kubler Ross model is the emotional model commonly being used to help people deal with news from their doctor that they are going to die over some known time period. It still has relevance. This is because you will likely go through these emotional phases over and over again as you wrestle with this unbearable burden of global warming knowledge.

    Once you truly grasp the true scale and seriousness of our rapidly escalating global warming emergency by working through your emotional reaction to it, you too will realize that our lives and our children's lives are clearly going to be far more time-limited than we ever imagined unless we act immediately to radically reduce fossil fuel use.

     

  • A Super-Inspiring 2019 Message AND, the Universe Day Transition

    Just like the earth, the Universe has also given you (and will continue to give you,)  almost everything that makes you --- you! But, when was the last time you realized (or re-recognized,) you are fully and completely embedded in a spectacular and continually evolving Universe?

    This beginning of 2019 will you take the briefest moment to reflect upon your amazing universe home and feel a profound gratitude for your mere existence within it?

    Image result for Photos of the universe

    Will you consider adding the briefest intentional moment to honor the gift of our Universe and its amazing resources which you use every day?

    Similar to Earth Day events, individuals and organizations all over the world are encouraged to take a moment of gratitude, meditation as we enter 2019 to forward this year's Universe Day theme and message of active hope (described just below.)

    In true Millennial and openness style, this Universe's Day celebration and 2019 message is a no-ownership, no-egos, get-the-message-out-now local and international co-created event.

    Imitate it, adapt it, improve it, share it!. “Steal it, even, if it hastens the spread of its vital message below...

    The foundational message behind the Universe Day celebration to bring into 2019 is derived in part from...

    the wisdom of Albert Einstein when he said: “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” One doesn’t have to be a scientist, activist, or political analyst to know that the challenges faced on a worldwide scale (the global warming emergency, war,  other environmental degradation, the unstable global economy...) have serious consequences.

    But rather than merely feeling overwhelmed by these issues (or our other personal challenges,) the impetus behind Universe Day is to expand one's perspective on how one thinks about them (such as thinking about them from the perspective of being planetary Evolutioneers or Universe Citizens. 

    Universe Day is also about shifting our lives into better alignment with planetary-scale and universe-scale informed solutions --- such as new strategies for improvement based on science or humanity's vast collective experience and wisdom.

    Universe Day is essentially a challenge to all of us. Amazing leaps in science and technology have extended the vision of the naked eye well over a million times. With recent innovations in astronomy and evolutionary science, we’ve discovered more factual knowledge about the universe and life in the last 20 years than all of human history.

    With these leaps in our collective vision, we are touched and impacted in our consciousness by the rareness and miracle of what we have here on Earth.

    In other words...

    just as the universal informs the personal, so does it transform our planetary perspectives. Can we use these new science-grounded breakthroughs and our past collective wisdom to inspire our collective eyes, ears, hearts, and souls to examine what this planet, our universe, and our many challenges mean to us in a bigger evolutionary context and panorama?

    This year's other important Universe Day messages

    This year in addition to celebrating the official birthday of the Universe the other messages of Universe Day focuses on the four following life challenges and goals: 

    1.) Act effectively and wisely as planetary Evolutioneers. As such, we have the responsibility to act from a long-term, big-picture perspective to wisely forward progressive evolution on our truly rare planet for the benefit of all humanity and all of earth's other inhabitants.

    There are critical global responsibilities that transcend our national citizenship!

    Our largest global responsibility is effectively managing global warming. This is one life-critical area where we must act together and be effective trans-national planetary Evolutioneers and universe citizens!

    2.) Live more sustainably to dramatically reduce atmospheric carbon emissions on an emergency basis! This emergency reduction of human-caused carbon emissions is "Job One" for all of humanity. To learn how to live more sustainably and reduce your fossil fuel use, click here. (For other actions to be taken to slow and lessen escalating global warming, see the Job One for Humanity Plan.)

    3.) Encourage people everywhere to sign the global warming State of Emergency Petition. This petition demands our government leaders get together and deal with the harsh new escalating global warming reality we all now face. Click here to sign this critical petition.

    (Click here for why this emergency petition is urgently needed to deal with the global warming emergency and to prevent us crossing more global warming tipping points..)

    4. Help build sustainable new eco-communities in global warming safe zones by donating here. For more about why these new sustainable eco-communities are critical to the future of humanity and civilization, click here.

    We invite you (and all other planetary Evolutioneers and universe citizens,) to gather with friends locally this 10th annual Universe Day to consider both your rights and responsibilities as planetary Evolutioneers and universe citizens and then help us to enact new critically needed effective solutions to the escalating global warming emergency, better solve your own local challenges as well as to celebrate the beauty and wonder of the Universe we live in.

    What will you do as an important part of the universe on this 10th annual Universe Day December 31-January 1st?

    The universe and its beautiful planet Earth are waiting for you…

    Need Some Ideas, Tips, and Pointers for Creating your own 10th annual Local Universe Day event? 

    Similar to Earth Day events, individuals and organizations all over the planet are encouraged to host their own Universe Day and meetups to forward the Universe Day message. Universe Day is a no-ownership, no-egos, get-the-message-out now viral event. Imitate it, adapt it, improve it, and even steal it if it means that its message is quickly adopted to build a more sustainable future.

    Why does Universe Day land on noon December 31st to noon on January 1st?

    The New Year’s holiday is a time spent by many to reflect on the previous year, and examine how they want to live in the New Year about to begin. The celebration is also a way to energize important intentions. Mark Twain said, “Never trust your mind when your imagination is out of focus.” Likewise, on Universe Day, how might one shape their New Year’s resolutions when the biggest possible challenge to humanity's future (the global warming emergency) is also in focus?

  • Don't worry about global warming ever again because magical carbon sucking unicorns will turn all the atmospheric carbon into Skittles or Glitter and save us just-in-time...

     

    STERNO-FUEL_EARTH_3.jpg

    With this December’s UN Climate Conference (COP24) in Poland over, are there any signs that negotiators are facing reality about "Global Cooking"……… or, are they still wishing for magical “Carbon Sucking Unicorns” being discovered after 2050 to rescue us and allow us to continue our fossil fuel frenzy? 

    (The following blog post was written in most part by our partners at the Association for the Tree of life. It is so good and important that we are republishing it in our blog with a few additions and references...)

    Originally titled Man and Miracles

    In spite of all the IPCC rhetoric about having 12 years to achieve staying under 1.5C, the real choice is: "Will we work hard to achieve Purgatory?" Or, "Will we slide into Hell itself and end the human experiment?"

    “The easiest thing of all is to deceive oneself, for we believe whatever we want to believe. This is so, even though the reality is often different” --Demosthenes

    Absent the appearance of vast herds of magical “Carbon-Sucking Unicorns” to rescue us, we can be assured that not only is the Earth surface cooked to medium-unwell done, but also we will harvest a broken climate. We will say goodbye to many parts of civilization these next few decades, perhaps in its entirety. (Don't believe this? read this page.)

    The question then is, "Will we work hard to achieve Purgatory?" Or, "Will we slide into Hell itself and end the human experiment?"

    The latest meeting of the International Troupe of climate negotiators continued their climate discussions about attempting stabilization, but rhetoric substituted for substantive results.  The newest 24th Conference of the Parties met in Poland, and the purpose was to decide how to reduce fossil fuel emissions that will soon break the climate system, as it is already broken at the poles of our beautiful world. None of the meetings have accomplished any reductions since the first Conference in 1990, and climate-destabilizing pollution is up some 67% since that first meeting. (See this article on why we have failed for 35 years to achieve the necessary global warming reductions.)

    This year Global Cookingcarbon emissions increased about 3%, to about 33.5 billion metric tons. This number needs perspective.  In the USA, each individual puts into the air about 18 tons of this "cooking" material each year, and has for quite some time. Here is a visual of the volume of one ton of this sterno cooking fuel.

    Now to get a “feel” for the red-hot cooking going on. The amount of cooking fuel added to our world each-and-every-day by our collective cooking fuel additives is about 345,600 individual Hiroshima-style nuclear bombs. So, when an individual says they do not believe in global warming, they are so 20thCentury! We don’t have global warming, nor do we have climate change. 

    We are now cooking our Earth home, so Global Cooking is the correct new term. Similarly, global warming is no longer pertinent.  We are fast breaking what was for the last 10,000 years a livable climate system. Climate Breakdown is underway and fast approaching an area near to each homestead. Expect singeing soon, and prepare for fire brigades in some near future.  

    If someone does not grasp that the cooking fuel we are continually adding to the air matters gigantically, then they are part of the comprehensive denial mechanism employed to continue keeping-on-keeping-on, doing the consumption-destruction dance while telling others, like the poorer nations, what they should do to reduce. 

    “We have met the enemy and they are me!  But, I can’t look in the mirror, and I won’t!”  

    It takes great writers to explain our comprehensive self-deception. David Wallace-Wells explains how “You, Too, Are in Denial of Climate Change.” He explains the 50 ways to say you believe in the “cooking,” but how to avoid doing anything meaningful about it.  Another article explains that stabilizing climate is just getting too big to handle, thus we all are now accepting climate breakdown.  The next ten pages of this article could be filled with corroboration for breaking the climate system and all of the attendant “Overshoots” germinating in the current ideal conditions. But that is not the major point of this short message.

    The takeaway is how, even with the climate in the process of breakdown, there is everywhere the distraction and delusion of “miracles and magical carbon unicorns” gratuitously added to the climate crisis.  It’s as if we “want” to break the climate faster and more completely!  Most everyone, including the so-called climate movement, is part of the ruse. The good guys don’t even know that they are being duped!  

    So, as bad as it is with us missing scale, scope, and urgency while we fiddle—the truth is that it is much worse than that. This is because carbon sucking unicorns are proposed in almost all IPCC and government climate models being used or considered to magically and miraculously appear sometime after 2050 so that we can keep fooling ourselves about the time available to respond to avoid the hell toward which we are heading. In all government calculations for how much we must actually reduce fossil fuel use today, they include calculations for these magical carbon sucking unicorns which supposedly will appear after 2050 and save us at the last minute. (For more information on these magical carbon sucking unicorns which government reports call NETs [negative emissions technologies,] which will miraculously remove all of the carbon that we have been putting in the atmosphere for almost 200 years since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, click here.)

    Unfortunately, ignorantia legis neminem excusat. (Ignorance is not a legitimate excuse.) Thus, if we keep ignoring Reality’s laws, we will end up in hell, even if the best of us are filled with great intentions!

    Now, we don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of avoiding purgatory for a few centuries, and if some of us are to survive the reckoning coming we might avoid permanent hell if we shed our delusions. Permanent Hell means all of humanity is terminated.  Purgatory is the good news.  

    So, there are just two remaining ways to describe our options, purgatory or hell. One is the Delusions and Contradictions way, pages 11-18, explaining the Tinkerbell-Effect which presumes the appearance of hordes of magical Carbon Sucking Unicorns. The other way is to understand the ways of our “Deluder-in-Chief.” And the Deluder-in-Chief manifests an interesting example of our collective delusions embodied in one famous person.  One you might not consider a victim of the Tinkerbell-Effect.  But, he is a classic victim.

    Understand the Tinkerbell-Effect this way:

    Nine years ago, Bill Gates made his most famous appearance at TED, and espoused his belief that coming soon were energy miracles, abundant zero-carbon energy supplies, and (of course) new solutions to the climate breakdown crisis. This was nine winters ago. 

    View the video, and read the transcript, this TED talk is fascinating in what it reveals. Today, we are no closer to those energy miracles than we were then, and Gates still believes in energy miracles!  

    In another few years, Gates will have abandoned his delusion, because it will be far too late to do the entire process of implementing a new energy system. We do not have the time to design, develop, demonstrate, scale and make economically viable and cheap enough, a new energy system when it is still a notion of techno-delusionists.  

    Nor will we manage to produce magical Carbon-Sucking Unicorns sometime after 2050 to save us at the last minute after everything else has failed. These are wishes and dreams, unfortunately not at all related to Reality, i.e., non-Reality based assumptions. And we get lots of those from the US President every day. In common parlance, it is called lies. Or belief in Tinkerbell, if you prefer.

    Conclusion

    So, this essay suggests that our preferred outcome, given the options of Hell or Purgatory, is Purgatory. Devoutly to be wished.  

    And if you do not “believe” these are our options, just you wait and watch the unfolding 20 worst consequences of global warming.  You will see these consequences increasing in frequency, severity, and scale soon enough and you will know that what we are telling you is painfully true!

    Also omitted here are explanations of the entire spectrum of “Overshoots” we have spawned, giving us the option between a series of looming disasters, or comprehensive catastrophe. 

    The only sane option you have, if you want any future for your “Posterity,” as they have been promised, is to help all of us to work hard for the Purgatory that is necessary if we are to have any Posterity at all. Or, continue believing, along with Gates and friends, in miracles and magical carbon sucking unicorns and that you can bring back Tinkerbell just with a clap of your hands...

  • Smart Millennials planning to migrate to stay ahead of escalating global warming consequences

    In case global warming makes their homes uninhabitable, some very smart millennials already have a Plan B... 

    investing in places like the Catskills, Oregon and Vermont.

    Mark Dalski is an owner of Highview Creations, a company that designs and builds green roofs in New York City, and he knows a lot about climate change. That’s why he is working on his escape.

    Mr. Dalski, 33, lives in Greenwich, Conn., but he can envision a time when his home there might be besieged by extreme weather and rising sea levels. So he bought four acres of land in the Catskill Mountains, in Roxbury, N.Y., where he is building a home that is as sustainable and self-sufficient as possible.

    To date, he has drilled a well, set up poles for power lines and designed a septic system that has been approved by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection. (The property is in the city’s watershed.)

    He is working on designing and then securing building permits for the house. He wants it to be no more than 1,200 square feet — “it should be simple, small and sustainable,” he said — and to have an open floor plan and a lofted master bedroom. The windows will look out over land where he can grow corn, collard greens and root vegetables.

    “Will I need it 10 years from now, or 30 years?” he said. “I don’t know.”

    But if his part of Greenwich is ever in jeopardy, he added, “I’ll have a safe space.”

    This fall, the United Nations stunned the world when it released a report saying that if no action was taken, the catastrophic effects of climate change could be felt as early as 2040. It painted a bleak picture of a world plagued by fires, food shortages, extreme heat, droughts, floods and disease. Entire populations might have to migrate away from coastal or Southern cities. There would be a strain on resources and damage to the economy. Some believe that prices on Northern land will surge.

    “It’s going to be a slow, gradual burn, if you will,” said Vivek Shandas, founder of the Sustaining Urban Places Research Labat Portland State University. “But there will be destabilization, and it will all happen in the foreseeable future.”

    Then, late last month, the federal government issued a report concluding that climate change would cause hundreds of billions of dollars in damage, and as much as 10 percent of the American economy could be destroyed by 2100 because of rising temperatures.

    There is one group, however, that is slightly less anxious than the rest of us about this news: a small number of young professionals who are preparing homes away from the places where climate change is expected to strike the hardest.
