Species That Inspired Pikachu Is Endanger From Climate Change

A new study finds that global warming will push one out of every thirteen species on the planet to extinction.
One of the species that will soon be affected is the American pika.
Many species will begin moving to higher elevations in search of cooler environments as the base temperature of the planet gets warmer.
For a species like the pika, which already lives on mountains, there aren't many places left to climb, and it will soon lack an inhabitable environment.
The American pika is one of the real life animals that inspired Pikachu, the most recognizable and popular character from the Pokemon anime and video games series.
