Crusius, John. 2020: “‘Natural’ Climate Solutions Could Speed Up Mitigation, With Risks. Additional Options Are Needed.”

Crusius, John. 2020: “‘Natural’ Climate Solutions Could Speed Up Mitigation, With Risks. Additional Options Are Needed.” Earth’s Future (8). https://doi.org/10.1029/2019ef001310.

‌"If climate change is to be minimized, no‐regrets approaches to natural mitigation should be considered (e.g., by reducing deforestation), as emissions targets that could limit warming to 1.5 °C cannot be met without mitigation of this magnitude. However, additional mitigation options should also be evaluated that can reduce CO2 emissions and remove CO2 from the air (and store it permanently)."
