1) PNAS: Climate Endgame: Exploring catastrophic climate change scenarios, August 1, 2022 (The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS))
2) Doomsday scenario: Climate change news should send a tingle of fear down your spine by Marshall Brain — August 5, 2022 .
RALEIGH – In Climate Change news last week, there were four headlines that should send a tingle of fear down the spine of every human being. Taken together, these four articles represent an approaching tragedy of the highest order for planet Earth and humanity. It is a true doomsday scenario. These four headlines should cause humanity to wake up, take notice, and change course:
- ‘Soon it will be unrecognisable’: total climate meltdown cannot be stopped, says expert
- Scientists say temperatures are getting ‘hotter faster’ than their tools can calculate
- Why the Arctic Is Warming 4 Times as Fast as the Rest of Earth
- The perfect storm – The ripple effects of concurrent crises are leading the world on a path to crushing hunger, and the possibility of more war
E. Some proposed measures for large-scale climate action:
1) Mobilize for Climate Action in a similar way as Canada did in WWII: A Good War: Mobilizing Canada for the Climate Emergency by Seth Klein,
2) Whole society mobilization for Climate Action by The Climate Mobilization.
3) Recommending large-scale direct action by protestors by Roger Hallam, a co-founder of Extinction Rebellion:
a) Video: How to Stop the Climate Crisis in Six months by Roger Hallam, 4 September 2021
b) Book: Common Sense for the 21st Century: Only Nonviolent Rebellion Can Now Stop Climate Breakdown and Social Collapse, 2019 by Roger Hallam
4) A proposed plan by a leading venture capitalist from Silicon Valley,John Doerr, who wrote a book called Speed & Scale. This book includes some excellent ideas on accelerating climate action. He indicates that his plan gets us to net-zero emissions by 2050—and halfway there by 2030.
5) A proposed by Bill Gates, who foundedBreakthrough Energy and wrote the book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need.
6) Recommended action plan by ClimateSAN: Collaboration between technically oriented environmental groups and/or individuals, governments, financial institutions and industry (including the oil, gas and coal industry sectors) to implement climate action (including Carbon Tech) on a large-scale and at a rapidly increasing rate. To view ClimateSAN’s proposed plan for Canada, visit:

Note: ClimateSAN’s recommended action plan can and should be complemented by appropriate good ideas from other action plans including “Speed & Scale”, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster”, “A Good War” and “Climate Mobilization”.
