AAAS President James J. McCarthy: Scientists Should Share the "Wow" Factor in Their Work

AAAS President James J. McCarthy began his term on 18 February, at the end of an Annual Meeting in Boston that highlighted the need for science to transcend political boundaries and work for the global good. It was a fitting start for McCarthy, who has made a career out of traversing discipline boundaries in his field of oceanography and later breaking down the barriers between science and policy in his work on global climate change.
