PURPOSE

This mock cover illustration for Nature calls attention to the intersection of climate change

and medicine, specifically the complex bidirectional relationship seen in nephrology. 

The current treatment of kidney diseases generates excessive waste. Alarmingly, the impacts

of climate change (extreme heat, drought, and water contamination) cause an increase in incidence and distribution of kidney disease. This cover aims to provoke critical thought

about the body’s filtering system among a general audience and initiate climate-conscious

care adaptations among practitioners.
