We already recycle. I live too far away to ride my bike to work. The fact that China has been opening a new coal fired power plant every month has more to do with the environment than what I'll ever do as an individual.

I may have to supplement the insulation of my house more to conserve the AC cooled air in the summer. Perhaps do a sort of desert landscaping of my yard. Trade my black car for a more heat reflective colored one. Other things like that probably.

It already has. We have had very little snow (Chicago hit a record this week, going the longest without a substantial (1 inch or more) snow for more than 320 days.) less snow cover means not only less moisture, but no protection for our bulbs and perennial plants. I lost many bulbs last winter, due to no snow cover. The summers are hotter, and very dry. We barely got enough out of our garden last summer, and the year before. Watering by hand just doesn't do the job when there is little rain. More money on air conditioning last summer.

I think the people effected by severe storms like Sandy would say they were certainly effected.

It's only going to get worse.

Depends on how old you are it seems. The older you are (AKA politicians), the less you seem to care about the future of your children and the more you care about maintaining your power. Wish we had a time machine to see into the future, that would really get people into action (since apparently Harvard scientist predictions aren't enough)

Already has. Superstorm Sandy had a HUGE impact on this area; things won't be back to normal in some places for years. Everybody is going to face higher insurance costs as a result of rising sea levels and stronger and more frequent storms.

It's long past time to wake up and start "dealing with the real", but some folks won't be bothered to take action until Nature reaches out and bitch slaps them personally.

Sooner then later it will change the way we all live. Weather changes everything.

While I live in New Mexico, I don't think I'm going to have it CHANGE the way I live for a long time. I agree that it depends on where you live. People who live on the coasts are going to be more affected by climate change, be it cooling, warming, poll shifts, etc.

We're used to warm, dry, moody weather here anyways, so I think that we're pretty stable here for a while!

It has already started with a few effects now. Later it may be a lot more.

I feel it already has where I live. It started getting really cold much earlier and we don't get much warm days here.

If the long-term temperature changes I hear about happen, then you bet. There's no escaping the weather

Yes, unfortunately.

pretty sure we just had record droughts...which means bad crops, which means higher prices for food. not to mention that less snow and ice means less reflected sunlight, which means more absored into the earth which means we get warmer...and the weather goes nuts, and the crops die and the animals die and the people die...but not before we all go nuts and kill each other. should be good fun. hope it doesn't happen until after i die.

Yes. I like to hope that I will be forced or force myself to live a more conscious life about the environment.

Yep. Hopefully there will be enough positive and sustainable changes in people's lives to make the effects less

I have no idea. I just hope if the world ends, it's quick and painless. Ha!
