It is safe to answer “nobody” to this question. No matter how fast you can run, there is simply no chance to get away from climate change. This year is heading to a new world record for being the hottest year since the recording of temperatures. Here is another animal with no place to run:

“Pronghorn are known for being the fastest land mammals in North America.

But a pronghorn cannot outrun climate change, which is expected to greatly impact habitat in the western U.S. through worsened droughts and wildfires.

Right now, the Environmental Protection Agency is deciding whether or not to establish new pollution standards for the oil and gas industry that could help wildlife in the West.”
