It's both, a current and future problem. We're currently suffering the consequences of the last century, and it's pretty obvious if you actually look.
Over here in Germany for instance, when I was a kid we had snow in winter, I used to build snowmen and have snowball fights. But the last 10 years or so we've had terribly bad winters on average. Barely any snow or real cold weather, last winter was the worst actually, we had about 3 days of snow - in February.
I didn't even bother getting out my winter jacket due to the weather being pretty much the exact same as in Autumn, just with the nights being colder.
The Summers have also changed, it takes longer for the heat to kick in, with last year's being particularly cold, it felt more like Spring with about two weeks of actual Summer heat.
And that's just the change I myself experience.
Yes there is natural climate change, caused by the CO2 emissions from animals and Volcanoes. However, those emissions used to be balanced out by all the trees and plants, cleaning up most of it, but we throw the whole thing out of balance with massive deforestation, industry and animal farming for meat production.
We gotta change and find newer better ways of dealing with that stuff, well, unless we really, really hate our grandchildren and want them to live in an environment they can't really survive in.

Leave it to Dead Metal to have the word 'Pronz' in his signature.
