I'm not convinced of that.

Blowhards who base their beliefs on feelings rather than peer-reviewed science will fervently exclaim that unusual climactic changes follow from wholly natural causes. Those with less emotional dispositions may be interested in viewing the Online Glacier Photograph Database. It shows pairs of glacier photographs taken 60-100 years apart.

Furthermore, I'm not convinced that extreme lifestyle changes would be necessary. The market is pretty good at adjusting to scarce resources given sufficient time and the proper incentives.
