Is my high carbon footprint contributing to this weird weather? (Climate change)

I have a big carbon footprint, I drive a diesel car and burn around £40 + each week of gas from driving. I've been driving over 5 years and owned a petrol car for 3 years and while owning that I was burning about £60 a week petrol.
I've burned through about £14,000 of petrol and diesel in my 5 years of motoring and sometimes I think about how burning all that dirty gas is changing the climate atmosphere.

I'm witnessing very weird weather patterns around the world and wonder how much an individual's carbon footprint contributes to it ?




I know I have a high carbon footprint especially due to my driving but should I feel guilty about the weird weather due to climate change ?

Do you have anxiety in general? This isn't something that you should worry about.

The weather is changing, never has the weather patterns been so freakin weird, ice caps are melting faster than ever, huge rise in hurricane s and floods, tornadoes e.t.c

We are told to reduce our carbon footprint emissions and I know that I must be contributing towards climate change as my carbon footprint emissions are very high, probably higher than most peoples
