Burnished-buff tanager

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.


  • Individual actions are important to reduce emissions, yet consumers’ carbon incompetence may lead to ineffective efforts. This study demonstrates the consistent inaccuracy in assessing emissions of behaviours, firms and industries, which may be driven by lack of information or expertise.

  • Water scarcity is becoming increasingly severe under climate change, and women often bear most of the burden of collecting water. This research finds that both temperature rises and reduced precipitation increase women’s daily water collection time, thereby undermining their welfare globally.

    ArticleOpen Access
  • The authors combine 393,139 forest inventory plots with satellite data to understand the impact of biodiversity on the sensitivity of spring leaf-out dates to temperature (ST). They show that high diversity significantly weakens ST, a relationship that Earth system models largely fail to reproduce.

  • Regional marine cloud brightening (MCB) has been proposed as a form of geoengineering. Here the authors show that a regional MCB aiming to reduce warming in the Western United States under today’s conditions would be less efficient under warmer conditions and would exaggerate warming in other regions.

  • 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.

  • To accept carbon pricing, citizens desire viable alternatives to fossil fuel-based options. As inflation and higher interest rates have exacerbated access barriers for capital-intensive green substitutes, the political success of carbon pricing will be measured by how well policy design enables consumers to switch.

  • Carbon dioxide removal is an important part of climate mitigation pathways. However, its planning and implementation should be carefully reviewed given the potential limitations and risks.
