August 31, 2018 was a good issue of Science.  Starting with the in brief news updates – Sacha Baron Cohen tried to prank Francis Collins (NIH) – Collins realized pretty quickly but continued to engage: “‘I was pretty irritated from having been misled.’  But ever the dutiful public servant, he decided to keep going — and get across whatever public health messages would stick.”  – if you are on your game and an expert, this is how you you engage..  The piece of “Can a transgenic chestnut restore a forest icon?” is a good look at work on an engineered American chestnut.  Lots of biotech – an interesting piece on using CRISPR to fix a muscular dystrophy in dogs – wow!  A really good analytic piece with big energy, climate, and policy implications: Global carbon intensity of crude oil production.  Really good work to quantify a critical aspect of energy production.  A great piece on a critical issue of geographic (lack of) diversity in S&T investment in the U.S. – Federal research funding aims to ease societal challenges (and fantastic work Kei Koizumi!!!).  The review on Emerging applications for DNA writers and molecular recorders was a good overview on key emerging tech in this area.  Finally, the comprehensive review of a large number of datasets for the spatial footprint of injections wells in a global compilation of induced earthquake sequences is impressive and good work.

An important look at the dynamics between climate change and population, addressing a number of misconceptions, in Global warming policy: Is population left out in the cold?

An interesting look at Abrupt cloud clearing of marine stratocumulus in the subtropical southeast Atlantic attributed potentially to atmospheric gravity waves (AGW).  Interesting if increased atmospheric energy may mean more AGW and a positive feedback climate loop.
