Alarmed by what their research on climate change is showing them, a growing number of scientists are stepping out of the lab to advocate for solutions. Dr. Kim Cobb, a professor at the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech, is among those speaking out. A leading expert in the study of corals and how climate change is affecting them, Dr. Cobb was devastated when, during a 2016 research trip to the South Pacific, she saw that most of the coral reef she had been studying was obliterated. "For me, it was a bellwether event... I decided to go 'all in' on climate solutions, personally and professionally."
