Censorship: Beware scientists wielding red pens

By inviting scientists to take their 'red pens to the Internet' and grade online sources of science reporting, Phil Williamson implies that science is the primary and final voice in public discussion (Nature540, 171;10.1038/540171a2016). This disregards other ways

Anthropocene: social science misconstrued

Adding in a wider range of social-science expertise will not, in my view, help efforts to 'formalize the Anthropocene' as a geological age of human influence (E.Elliset al. Nature540, 192–193;10.1038/540192a2016). The authors rightly

Anthropocene: its stratigraphic basis

As officers of the Anthropocene Working Group (AWG; J.Z. and C.W.) and chair of the Subcommission on Quaternary Stratigraphy (SQS; M.J.H.) of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS), we note that the AWG has less power than Erle Ellis and colleagues imply (Nature540

Cancer biology: Tumours slowed by diet tweak

Ecology: Trees grow thick skin to survive fire

Trees that live in fire-prone areas have evolved thick bark to protect themselves. This trait can be used as an indicator of how resilient a tree species is to increased fire risk under global warming.Adam Pellegrini, now at Stanford University in California, and his

Climate change: Sea-level rise for centuries to come

Atmospheric methane and other short-lived greenhouse gases are set to keep the global sea level rising for several centuries — even after any potential decline or halt in emissions.Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere cause ocean warming and thermal expansion that results in sea-level rise.
