Assessing dangerous climate change and call for climate change response papers
Date:12/3/2013

examining the potential for drawing down atmospheric CO2 via reforestation and increase of soil carbon, Hansen et al review fossil fuel emission reduction scenarios, concluding that an appropriate target is to keep global temperature within or close to the temperature range in the Holocene, the interglacial period in which civilization developed.

Following on from the PLOS Collection "Ecological Impacts of Climate Change" the publication of this paper is accompanied by a call for papers for responses to climate change.

"Our hope is to generate a wide range of submissions on climate research and in particular papers that address solutions to the challenges posed by a changing climate, such as alternative energy development, environmental preservation, the problems of acidification, adaptation strategies and restoration of failing ecosystems. As a multidisciplinary and open access journal, PLOS ONE is well equipped to handle the variety of submissions we hope to receive and make that research freely available to the world for application and further development" says Damian Pattinson, Editorial Director of PLOS ONE.

Papers submitted to the call that successfully undergo peer review will be published in PLOS ONE. A PLOS Collection, "Responding to Climate Change," will be launched in early 2014 to highlight the research.
