With this issue of Environment we begin a new feature for the magazine. Our intent is to reproduce seminal articles that helped define a field of study or offered alternative explorations of new ideas, and then ask leading figures in the field to reflect on the significance of the articles from today's vantage point. We begin with the series of articles published in 1978 under the heading “Our Hazardous Environment” with Christoph Hohenemser and Robert W. Kates as the series editors.
