A quick shout-out to our Editor in Chief Mariette DiChristina, who this week was elected as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for the section on General Interest in Science and Engineering. She is being honored for distinguished science journalism and editing that has had a major impact on public understanding of science. (Update: Read the full press release here.)

DiChristina joins 502 other new fellows, elected by other AAAS members. Many have written for Scientific American over the years or served as expert sources, including Wallace Broecker of Columbia University’s Earth Institute. In his November 1995 article "Chaotic Climate," Broecker suggested that another jump in global temperatures would be in the offing, and with the turn of the 21st century, that prediction came true: 2005 and 2010 were the hottest years ever since temperature record-keeping began.

Congratulations to Mariette (@SAeditorinchief), Wally and all the other new fellows. They will be honored at the annual meeting of the AAAS on February 19 in Washington, D.C.
