Essential Climate Info 3: Climate destabilization worsens our biggest global challenges by amplifying them and making them far harder to resolve.

Climate destabilization affects our other biggest global challenges by making them into even bigger challenges and harder to solve. Those key other global challenges are:

Global Challenge 1, Over Population: (Earth may have only the resource carrying capacity for about 2 billion people. We are near 8 billion racing to 9 billion.)

Global Challenge 2, Resource Depletion: Fueled by overpopulation and climate destabilization we have now (or soon will have,) increasing food shortages, (1 billion people are hungry now.) Ocean fish stocks are suffering catastrophic losses. We will also be soon facing energy shortages caused by the early attainment of peak oil. Depleting our resources also act to increase global poverty, which helps cause the next global challenge.

Global Challenge 3, Global Economic Instability: All of the above challenges then also act in concert to increase global poverty, economic instability, economic inequality (conflicts between rich and poor,) and to produce rising national deficits. National deficits are rising in many countries in highly unsustainable ways. These deficits are happening to try to stay up with the escalating costs of all of these growing global challenges. Even worse, these ballooning national deficits are moving us ever closer toward an eventual bursting global financial bubble. Imagine what would happen with a global financial depression or crisis is going on as we also try to solve all of these other global challenges.

Global Challenge 4, Political Instability in Countries with Low Management Capabilities and Low Resource Resilience: All of the above global challenges plus increased political instability then also act in concert to further increase the likelihood of more wars, terrorism and political injustice.

Global Challenge 5, Failure to evolve a single, empowered global government with enforceable legislative, judicial and executive powers. (If you think carefully and deeply about it, you will find that this global challenge and critical evolutionary failure of "having no unified or effective planetary government" IS in fact, the single biggest core reason and cause, which through its absence alone acts to facilitate, escalate and even empower the other great global challenges that we currently face to either:

a.) exist at all,

b.) continue to exist or,

c.) to remain perpetually unresolved.)

Global Challenge 6, Global Pandemic: As all of the above other resilience-reducing global challenges (including climate destabilization,) get worse this also increases the probability of a global health pandemic. (This is due to existing or new diseases being poorly treated, the mobility and migration of world populations or the overall deterioration of global health services as the stew of all of the global challenges listed above comes to a global warming amplified boil.)

Why One of the Mentioned Global Challenges Should Now be Considered to be the Single Most Dangerous Challenge to our Immediate Future!

Climate destabilization is the most dangerous challenge because it is the largest single multiplier of the other huge problems caused by the key global challenges above! It is the most immediate and probable meta-trigger for the greatest growing possibility of a chain reaction of whipsawing simultaneous ecological, economic, social and political catastrophes and system collapses involving the other challenges above.

Because of the combined meta-triggering, multiplying and whipsawing effects of climate destabilization on humanity's other critical global challenges, climate destabilization is also the most likely current catalytic source for what could very well turn out to be the greatest planetary destruction, loss of human life and tragedy in all of human history!

Take a moment to reflect on these climate and related ideas and then ask yourself the following question:

"Do you too believe that escalating levels of climate destabilization could trigger, multiply and whipsaw almost all of the above other global challenges into an unrecoverable Perfect Storm of Perfect Storms."

No matter what level of bad climate news may happen the long-term, big evolutionary picture goods news is that eventually a destabilized global climate will seek to establish a new dynamic equilibrium at some new dynamic equilibrium level of temperature and other climate qualities. The only problem is that this new fairly-stable climate dynamic equilibrium may not be a climate that favors the ongoing survival of the human species.

More about the Local, National and International Security Implications of the Job One for Humanity Plan

Global warming and its consequent climate destabilization may have started out as an environmental issue 35 years ago, but global warming due to human-caused fossil fuel carbon pollution of the atmosphere has now gone very far beyond just an environmental issue. It is now the single most destructive, imminent and real threat to our national and international security, global financial prosperity and personal safety that currently exists --- bar none! It truly bears repeating. Climate destabilization is the single most important national/international security, collective prosperity and personal safety and security issue of the twenty first century. (If you have not read the definition of climate destabilization, click here.)
 
On the prosperity side, it is not about creating the same kind of ecologically-blind prosperity that has taken not enough of the planet's population into prosperity and results in cycles of boom and busts that are growing ever more severe and closer together in high-low oscillation time lags, (which is a system's science classic warning signal of a likely coming system equilibrium and stability collapse.) It is also about a new kind of sustainable prosperity that will not just expand the benefits of prosperity to far more of the planet's population it will also make that prosperity far more stable, lasting and meaningful.
 
On the safety side, it is not just about life essential food, water, energy and resource security for humanity's future. It is now about the very safety, stability and security of our interconnected global and national economic, political and social systems. 
 
There is no sense in being indirect or vague in discussing a true life and humanity-critical situation. Therefore, the simple two part mission goals of the Job One for Humanity climate re-stabilization plan is to:
 
1.) prevent human civilization from collapsing due to the destabilization of its climate system and consequently its many other global support systems (natural ecosystems, economies as well as social and political systems.) And,
 
2.) prevent humanity and non-human species from suffering needlessly and/or going extinct or going nearly extinct.
 
The real and growing climate destabilization, systems collapse and extinction potential above is due to the many converging, amplifying and whipsawing positive feedback loops and tipping points within the numerous catastrophic consequence chains of climate destabilization caused by intensifying global warming, which is itself is caused by human caused escalating fossil fuel burning.

"We'll lose more species of plants and animals between 2000 and 2065 than we've lost in the last 65 million years. If we don't find answers to these problems, we're gonna be victims of this extinction event that we're at fault for." Paul Watson

This climate re-stabilization plan is designed to help you prepare for it, adapt to it and lessen it to re-stabilize the climate by effectively confronting and dealing with the growing possibility of extinction-level climate destabilization and it's catastrophic social, financial, environmental and political precursor consequences. (Extinction level here is defined as the projected potential extinction of approximately half or more of the species on earth and most [60-90%,] if not all, of humanity. Irreversible climate destabilization whenever used, is defined as severe climate destabilization consequences that could take hundreds or even thousands of years to correct or re-balance or never correct or re-balance.)

The four parts of the Job One for Humanity Climate Re-stabilization plan linked in this online booklet will take you to these new ways of seeing and solving the economic prosperity, safety and security climate cliff challenge before us. Yes, the various steps of this plan will take a lot of effort, pain and sacrifice, but as your learn more you will also realize "what other choice do we really have?

It is now time to take a candid and deeper look at the current state of the climate in the following sections. In another Benefits of Global Warming section you will learned more about a stable climate and what makes unstable climates. (If you are curious or want to review that climate stability information now, click here.)
