<p>This article provides a rationale and proposed course of action for the global observing and modeling community to work together toward a solution for managing the Earth?s natural resources (e.g., water, energy, agriculture) for the common good. The computational science and engineering communities have the opportunity to build the infrastructure to use the observations, the computational models, and the knowledge about Earth system science to enable decision support to be used globally, nationally, regionally, and locally.</p>
