Reuters: Reversing climate change with carbon-sucking plantations not realistic, scientists warn

On Boysen et al. (2017). "A proposal to turn back climate change by planting vast swathes of land with fast-growing trees and plants that can be burned for electricity, with the carbon they release captured and stored, is not “realistic and feasible”, scientists said Thursday. The idea, included in many economic and science models on how the world might try to reverse runaway climate change, cannot serve as an emergency back-up if the world fails to rapidly switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy and then regrets the consequences, said scientists at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany."
