Nature Outlook: Climate change 

Faced with a warming planet, scientists tired of inaction are seeking technical and political solutions to a truly global problem. This Outlook discusses the wide array of marine life that is threatened by acidifying oceans, and how species are struggling to adapt. It also takes a look at the latest approaches to carbon capture, storage and use and at how some scientists are swapping research for politics to spur climate action.

    In the scientific community, the big question is not whether action on climate change is required, but what form it should take — and the part that scientists should play. Three Nobel laureates and three early-career researchers gave their thoughts to Nature on the current state of climate action worldwide and the place of science in society.
