Ultimate solutions to climate change problems lie in regulating and controlling the three key sectors: production, consumption, and lifestyle. In fact, the third one automatically takes care of the first two because our production and consumption patterns and trends depend directly on our lifestyles. This boils down to the fact that key to climate change mitigation lies in our lifestyles. Food, clothing, and shelter are our primary requirements, and they all contribute significantly to increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and ultimately to climate change problem. This chapter illustrates some model development exercises based on realistic and relevant parameters, which are easy to measure and monitor in the residential sector. Subsequently, the chapter also shows what kind of researches need to be pursued in various educational and research institutions so as to gradually make every citizen of the society environmentally aware and responsible. In short, the presentation discusses and recommends the kind of activities which need regular pursuance, refinement, modification, and application in regard to evolving site-specific, region-specific, and ecosystem-specific environmental management plans that are aimed at combating the climate-regulated environmental crisis which is unfolding before us every day with a newer dimension.
