Offshoring emissions through used vehicle exports

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 20 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41558-024-01943-1International trade of used vehicles lacks regulation on emissions standards. This study shows that vehicles exported from Great Britain generate substantially higher carbon and pollution emissions than scrapped or on-road vehicles.

Over-reliance on water infrastructure can hinder climate resilience in pastoral drylands

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 16 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41558-024-01929-zBuilding additional water infrastructure such as wells is a key strategy to mitigate the impacts of severe droughts, particularly in drylands. This study shows, however, that this infrastructure can lead to loss of resilience under climate change due to erosion...

Boreal–Arctic wetland methane emissions modulated by warming and vegetation activity

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 14 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41558-024-01933-3Whether methane emissions from the Boreal–Arctic region are increasing under climate change is unclear, but critical for determining climate feedbacks. This study uses observations and machine learning to show an increase in wetland methane emissions over the past...
