Our response is going to be to evade/flee and take our ruck sacks and head southwest in winter or north in summer. We can live out of them permanently given decent weather for the region.
Don't go too far southwest, about a hundred miles west of the Mississippi your ability to live off the land drops off dramatically. Mostly it's a water issue, the lack of it also means less edible plants & lower wildlife populations. For meat focus on trapping, as in a "zombie apocalypse" big game gets scarce fast & even traditional small game (birds & rabbits) take a hard hit. If the EPA would attack pollution in surface waters instead of chasing global warming red herrings, fishing would be a viable long term option.
Seriously, for long term survival, your best bet is to homestead. A descent piece of land, with a good well so you can raise your own crops & meat situated in a way that is defensible. Instead of bugging out you just reinforce.
