Editorial note: the authors uncovered errors in the data analysis beyond those already published in the corrigendum. Collectively, the errors affected several figures and the text, substantially compromising the scientific integrity of the article. The handling editor therefore recommended retraction of the article.

Short summary
Land cover and land management changes are important strategies for future land-based mitigation. We investigate the climate effects of cropland expansion, afforestation, irrigation, and wood harvesting using three Earth system models. Results show that these have important implications for surface temperature where the land cover and/or management change occurs and in remote areas. Idealized afforestation causes global warming, which might offset the cooling effect from enhanced carbon uptake.
