Pikachu helps destroy team rocket, and helps other pokemon/people out and stuff... Without Pikachu, our world would be infested with team rocket members.

I thought the same thing.

But they probably will. It's depressing to think that way, but you also have to know that climate change has always existed. It always will. There will always be animals dying out.

I am sorry it's something so cute. ;-;

lol @ global warming. as a geologist, I have to say that panicking over such a thing is utterly futile.

We shouldn't let Pikachu die, should we?

Yes, it is true:

Pika Facts

* Pikas live in boulder fields surrounded by meadows on mountain peaks. They avoid the summer heat by seeking the cool crevices under the boulders and by remaining inactive during warm periods.
* Despite the long, cold, snowy winters at high elevations, pikas do not hibernate.
* Pikas spend summers diligently gathering flowers and grasses and store them in “haypiles” for food to sustain them through the long winters.
* These “boulder bunnies,” which weigh only a third of a pound, must collect more than 60 pounds of vegetation to survive the winter.
* Global warming threatens pikas by shortening the time available for them to gather food, changing the types of plants that grow where they live, reducing the insulating snowpack during winter, and, most directly, causing the animals to die from overheating.


This is from this site: http://www.sierraforestlegacy.org/FC_SierraNevadaWildlifeRisk/AmericanPika.php


Because they live at such high altitudes, in some places they have no higher to go to stay cool and are dying out. However, all it not lost! They are being wiped out in many areas but doing well in others.
