Highlights of 2007

In 2007, the earth sciences got the media’s attention. You could hardly find a newscast, newspaper or magazine that wasn’t talking about climate change, weird weather patterns, energy or the latest finding from Mars. Seemingly no matter the subject, it became readily apparent how interconnected these issues are  — so that’s the focus of the Highlights issue: the story of climate and energy, climate and hazards, hazards and deep Earth, energy and space, and of course, the story of us and our past, in the form of new looks at what ancient DNA can tell us.
