Environment Guru - Climate change is having a big impact on many species, including the tiny American pika. Wildlife like the pika need new, accurate climate science, like the National Climate Assessment. This science enables wildlife managers to assess the impacts of climate change and determine how to best protect wildlife, and helps local officials prepare for unavoidable threats to vulnerable human populations. The assessment should also be heeded by federal policymakers and serve as the basis for new, aggressive action in Congress to prevent greater warming of the planet.
