Just Who Are We?

A once well know quote among us was, "Everyone talks about the weather, but no one does anything about it." 'Us' implies a 'we,' doesn't it? 'Everyone' refers to 'every one of us,' doesn't it? 'No one' refers to 'no one of us,' doesn't it?

When I say, "We now seem to be taking some responsibility for the weather as we begin to take some responsibility for our climate." Who do you suppose the 'we' refers to? Who makes up a we? How do individuals become a we? Why might one care?
