How do animals protect themselves against climate?

Commonly, a mammal will change it's fur when the climate temperature changes. Reptiles will either sit under the sun or hide under rocks to gather warmth depending on what their climate is like. If it is cold, the reptile (e.g snake) will sit on a dark object and soak up the sun's rays. If the weather is hot, the reptile will sit under a log or rock to cool its body down.

Why is there a need for the EPA?

If you're referring to the Environmental Protection Agency, it was established because too many business had no compunction about disposing of their waste where ever they could; through chimneys into the air, through pipes into water systems, or just dumping or letting run off onto the land. A great deal of toxic pollution was released and there were some pieces of land, some rivers and bodies of water that became poisonous. It is very expensive for industry to dispose of their waste in a responsible manner and it took government laws and enforcement to reduce or halt this pollution. It's not perfect, but it's made a difference.
