This paper analyses the level of awareness and efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change. First of all, a brief statement of the problem of climate change is given, and global inequalities in greenhouse gas emissions are described. Further, the role of changes in consumer behavior as an individual, voluntary response to climate change is considered, using an extended concept of responsibility. Findings of the research paper are divided in two categories: awareness and efforts where the awareness level and efforts of respondents are analyzed. Finally some of the suggestions to be followed at individual level are given.
