Examples of market failure?

I'm writing a paper on market failure where I need to find one example and write on why the failure occurred and how to remedy the situation. Can anyone give me some good examples of market failure that I could write a whole paper on? I can think of tons of examples, but none that I've really found... show more I'm writing a paper on market failure where I need to find one example and write on why the failure occurred and how to remedy the situation. Can anyone give me some good examples of market failure that I could write a whole paper on? I can think of tons of examples, but none that I've really found interesting enough to research. I'm not looking for someone to do my homework, just looking for suggestions or ideas for topics. The old examples of the lighthouse or the beekeepers are too simple - I need something I can actually expound upon. Thanks!
Update: Thank you to both of you who took the time to answer my question in great detail. I did chose to do my report on climate change, because I started writing it before I received the second answer. Both of you had very helpful suggestions, so thanks again!
