Extreme heat-related mortality avoided under Paris Agreement goals, Published online: 25 June 2018; doi:10.1038/s41558-018-0210-1 In key European cities, stabilizing climate warming at 1.5 °C would decrease extreme heat-related mortality by 15–22% per summer compared with stabilization at 2 °C.
The global potential for converting renewable electricity to negative-CO<sub>2</sub>-emissions hydrogen, Published online: 25 June 2018; doi:10.1038/s41558-018-0203-0 Combining saline water electrolysis with mineral weathering powered by non-fossil electricity could produce low-cost, negative-CO2-emissions energy.
Appraising geodiversity and cultural diversity approaches to building resilience through conservation, Published online: 25 June 2018; doi:10.1038/s41558-018-0188-8 This Perspective draws on two case studies to examine geodiversity and cultural diversity approaches to conservation currently used by US land trusts, and their complementary strengths and weaknesses in fostering climate resilience.
The ability of societies to adapt to twenty-first-century sea-level rise, Published online: 25 June 2018; doi:10.1038/s41558-018-0176-z This Perspective provides a comparative analysis of how well six cities and regions with different coastal and social characteristics and adaptation constraints will be able to adapt to sea-level rise, considering technological, economic, financial, and social factors.
Negative-emissions hydrogen energy, Published online: 25 June 2018; doi:10.1038/s41558-018-0215-9 The race against time to mitigate climate change has increasingly focused on the development and deployment of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage. New research shows that negative-emissions hydrogen production is potentially a cost-effective alternative.
Changing storminess and global capture fisheries, Published online: 25 June 2018; doi:10.1038/s41558-018-0206-x Climate change-driven alterations in storminess pose a significant threat to global capture fisheries. Understanding how storms interact with fishery social-ecological systems can inform adaptive action and help to reduce the vulnerability of those dependent on fisheries for life and livelihood.
Climate–carbon cycle uncertainties and the Paris Agreement, Published online: 25 June 2018; doi:10.1038/s41558-018-0197-7 A reasonable interpretation of the Paris Agreement may well still be technically achievable without the need for net negative emissions or excessively stringent policies according to climate–carbon-cycle modelling.
Singapore's Wilmar International, the world's largest palm oil processor, said it has ceased sourcing from suppliers that are allegedly associated with a company that was accused by Greenpeace of causing deforestation.
