It's not really that observation per se changes the world, it's the interaction with the environment that changes it.

So, because all 'particles' are constantly interacting with the environment, there should exist no wave-like behavior? Wave-like behavior is crucial for the stability of atoms in molecules(e.g. covalent bonds http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Co...d_hydrogen.svg , a molecule of two H atoms, each with just one electron shared between the atoms). From this i conclude that the H20 molecule would fall apart if it weren't for the delocalized wave-like behavior. This point also goes against decoherence, at least the version that is sometimes pushed as an explanation for the measurement problem.
