How Can We Face the Covid Pandemic, Our Global Economic Challenges, and the New Double Whammy?
We face an unparalleled moment of collective challenge far beyond the current global and local hardships of the Covid 19 pandemic with its isolation and economic hardships. We are also facing a cataclysmic DOUBLE whammy that almost no one is talking about.
Because of the 12 major global crises we currently face, If we do not radically and immediately change our behavior, we are looking at global and local consequences far worse than both the collective and total consequences of the current Covid pandemic and its global recession!
That is the true seriousness and urgency of the second part of our double whammy.
Because of our ignoring 35 years of valid scientific warnings about global warming and the steady worsening of many of the 11 other global crises, we now also face the unavoidable die-off of much of humanity by mid-century and the growing likelihood of the total extinction of humanity before the end of the 21st century --- unless we immediately make radical global changes!
To survive this double whammy and this unprecedented moment of collective and individual challenge will require great wisdom, sacrifice, and cooperation, as well as enduring many hardships that humanity has never faced before. Because of the rapidly unfolding dangers of both extinction consequences, it is completely appropriate to want to use your remaining time and energy as wisely as possible.
At Universe Spirit this wise use of time and energy could naturally include:
1. Doing everything you can to save and salvage as much of humanity and civilization as you can while you still can. Effective collective and individual action is now critical because doing nothing means losing everything even sooner! Saving something while we still can will always be better than saving nothing! (For the specifics on how to improve, save, or salvage as much as is still possible, see Parts 3 and 4 of the Job One for Humanity Plan.)
2. Being a part of co-creating or living within a sustainable, safe, and supportive eco-community that will help support and protect you both physically and emotionally. This is an advantage to help persevere through these unprecedented current and future times. (Click here to learn more about the Universe eco-community model.)
3. Making your remaining time as personally fulfilling, meaningful, and comfortable as possible for as long as impossible in your current location or in another location. (For specifics on how to do this, see Parts 1 and 2 of the Job One for Humanity Plan and if you are of a spiritual nature, the practices of the science-grounded, open-source, personalized Evolution Spirituality found within the Universe Spirit organization.)
The Universe Spirit (and the Job One for Humanity) organizations can help you do the three things above. If those actions are valuable to you, it is time to act before it becomes too late to make a difference.
If you truly are looking for intelligent actions to survive and thrive through these 12 major global crises and the collapse of many of our local and national social systems for as long as is possible, the Universe Spirit website, the Job One website, the Job One for Humanity Plan, and the Universe eco-community model was developed to help you make it through in this challenging unique moment in time.
What is Universe Spirt and What Does it Do
Universe Spirit is a nonprofit educational organization. It is here to inspire and help you:
- and thrive.
Our main mission is also to help you create a healthy, sustainable, and thriving future for yourself and your loved ones and, an equitable world for all.
Our greatest news is that --- we can still do this, but only if we work together supportively to resolve (or lessen) the current rapid worsening of the world's 12 greatest crises.
Our keystone global challenge and crises
It is always necessary to see conditions precisely as they are to begin to improve them. At Universe Spirit, we recognize that other than global thermonuclear war, there is one keystone roadblock humanity must manage as its highest priority to survive, thrive, and create a sustainable and prosperous future for all.
If a keystone is pulled out all of the other arch shown below the other pieces will fall as well.
That is what accelerating global warming is to most of the 11 other global crises. The ever-worsening consequences of accelerating global warming will also worsen the 11 other global crises into a witches brew of predictable catastrophes. Our current most urgent global challenge is to:
a. be well-prepared for,
b. adapt to, and,
c. work diligently to slow global fossil fuel use, causing accelerating environmental destruction, economic loss, and suffering. Worse yet, if we are not successful in radically reducing our global fossil fuel use to these levels, we will face total extinction.
Because things are so bad right now and are going to get much worse before they hopefully get better, it is critical to maintain one's balance and see the good that could come out of this emergency.
At Universe Spirit, the news about our worsening 12 global challenges and crises is always balanced by the good news, new possibilities and opportunities, and realistic hope!

And, there is even more good news!
Yes, we have to face and deal with 12 global crises at the same time, but as we do, we also release the potentials for an unprecedented new type of global renaissance that we call the Unissance.

How Universe Spirit and its members are boldly facing the World's 12 greatest global challenges
To have any realistic hope of achieving a more equitable and sustainable world we must now deal with the single largest disruptor of the 21st-century. That is the escalating global warming emergency and how it worsens and amplifies our other major 11 global challenges.
Surviving our global warming emergency as well as the worsening of our other 11 global crises means working wisely with those who are ready. It means preparing for and adapting to the many now unavoidable consequences. It also means that we do everything we can to live more sustainably right now to slow down the many catastrophic processes that we have collectively and individually created by our past decisions.
The good news is that If we act wisely, we will still have time to save and salvage everything we can! We also have a rational and ethical responsibility to act now and, if you are of a spiritual nature, a moral responsibility and duty to:
a. learn from our mistakes,
b. enact new, more sustainable, and equitable practices,
c. prepare for the coming consequences that are now unavoidable,
d. improve what we still can to slow and lessen coming consequences as much as is possible,
e. adapt to what we can't change, and,
f. evolve wisely so that future generations and biological life will also survive and thrive.
Universe Spirit will help you:
1. Realize, acknowledge, and recover from the rapidly worsening global crises that we have created for ourselves by our collective and individual poor decisions and actions. You can't chart a new and better path until you know where you are starting from and what got you there.
2. Make better choices for creating lifestyles and livelihoods for a thriving and sustainable prosperity for all. Creating sustainable lifestyles and livelihoods is absolutely critical to making it through the global warming emergency and our other major 11 global challenges.
3. Prepare for and adapt to humanity's worsening 12 most dangerous ecological, economic, and social global crises, particularly the global warming extinction emergency.
(To understand what the escalating global warming emergency is, see this page. For what we must do and sacrifice to save ourselves from it, visit the Job One for Humanity Plan action steps. Job One for Humanity is our sister website. Our Job One for Humanity Plan will lower our fossil fuel usage to meet or come very close to the life-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets.)
4. Create supportive new eco-communities worldwide. (in your current local area or a global warming-safer location.) These new eco-communities will be far better prepared to survive and thrive through the unavoidable onslaught of accelerating global warming consequences and the severe consequences of the other 11 global crises' worsening.
(See these Universe Community sections for all the information on joining one of our Universe communities.)
There are many coming ecological, climate, economic, and other catastrophes that we can no longer prevent or stop, no matter what we do at this point. (Click here to read about the many coming dangerous local and global consequences we have created for ourselves because of our decades of poor collective and individual decisions.)
5. Live fulfilling, healthy, and meaningful lives no matter what is going on around us. This is critically essential because of the hardships we will individually and collectively endure until we make the global transition to a more equitable and sustainable world.
If you are of a spiritual nature, we can even help you to expand your current personal spiritual practices with the practices of Evolution Spirituality.
6. Model and be successful examples of community sustainability and fairness principles and behaviors. These successful new communities will facilitate future generations and biological life surviving and thriving despite the difficult, deadly, and unavoidable consequences we must now endure.
You can become a part of the greatest evolutionary challenge and opportunity in human history, which is:
building a more sustainable and equitable world for all while simultaneously also saving:
c. future generations, and
d. our civilization from the rapidly worsening 12 global crises.
