The Climate Graphic: Explained is a new weekend newsletter from the Financial Times, offering insight and analysis into the most topical climate data of the week.

It is written by specialist climate and data visualisation journalists from the FT, who will share their understanding behind the concepts presented in an accessible style that will appeal to a range of FT readers - from school students to professionals.

The newsletter will give readers additional insight by telling them just how and why the data was selected, and why it is so important. It will cut through the complexity of information that is presented on everything from weather patterns to carbon emissions and renewable energy prices and trends.

FT climate editor Emiliya Mychasuk said: “The FT provides credible and thoughtful analysis at a time when the welter of information that is available about climate change is being debated and challenged. We know from our interactions with readers both in the comments section of the graphic on and on social media channels that there is a demand for further explanation and discussion about the data.”

The content is exclusive but complementary to the Climate Graphic of the Week article that appears online on the FT Climate Capital hub page at the end of each week, and also on the back page of the newsprint edition of FT Weekend. 

The Climate Graphic: Explained is available to all subscribers, and will be sent each Sunday. Visit to subscribe.

In April the FT released The Climate Game, which challenged players to reach net zero by 2050. The game has had an overwhelmingly positive response from subscribers and people encountering the FT for the first time, including teachers who have brought the game into their classrooms.
