It is with recognition of undertaking a huge new responsibility that I write my first Editorial as Editor-in-Chief of Science. New science will be needed on our crowded planet to protect our environment, to insure our health, and to provide sufficient water and food for humanity. This publication is a major vehicle for the success of the scientific enterprise, both by spreading scientific findings and by promoting community standards.
