Have you seen our June issue?

Featuring articles on the importance of fruit-eating animals for carbon recovery, the state of carbon dioxide removal and the importance of variability and extremes for climate related damages.

Nature Climate Change is a Transformative Journal; authors can publish using the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

Our Open Access option complies with funder and institutional requirements.


  • Addressing the consequences of climate change requires political attention and leadership. However, this study shows that apart from Green parties, political parties do not increase their attention to environmental issues following extreme weather events.

  • Using magnetic resonance imaging assessment of 2,681 children from the Netherlands, the authors investigate effects of cold and heat exposure during pregnancy, infancy and childhood. They found that these exposures can have lasting impacts on white matter microstructure at preadolescence.

  • Moving towards net-zero emissions requires carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technologies, which bring environmental and socioeconomic risks. This study reveals that demand and technological interventions in hard-to-abate sectors help to achieve net-zero targets with less reliance on CDR.

  • Soil carbon storage is vulnerable to various climatic and anthropogenic global change stressors (for example drought, warming, land-use intensification). Here the authors show that multiple stress factors act simultaneously to reduce soil carbon storage and persistence across global biomes.

  • The authors quantify how climate change-related disturbances—drought, fires and insect outbreaks—impact the sensitivity of primary productivity to subsequent water stress. They show significant increases in sensitivity following drought and fire, leading to decreased terrestrial carbon uptake.
