Enough performance can be maintained with non-plastic based outer wear that it would only be moderately disruptive to do. This would not be the case, however, with boots and skis. Leather boots and wooden skis would. be the end of days for me.

Sadly the pessimist in me doesn't think wild temps will do it ... perhaps the "Water Wars" will get heads out of assesJust wondering, how many degrees warmer will the earth be before we can develop new technologies like this and get them into large scale production.
