Science: Key climate panel, citing impending crisis, urges crash effort to reduce emissions

"A report released yesterday in Incheon, South Korea, by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says allowing the planet to warm by more than 1.5°C could have dire consequences, and that a speedy transformation of the world’s energy systems is needed to avoid breaching that limit, which is notably tighter than the target of 2°C cited in the Paris agreement of 2015. “Net [carbon dioxide] emissions at the global scale must reach zero by 2050,” said Valérie Masson-Delmotte, a climate scientist at France’s Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission in Paris and a key participant in drafting the report."

Phys.org: Crisis management: Seven ways to engineer climate

"'Plan A' remains tackling the problem at its source. But a major UN climate science report released in South Korea on Monday makes it clear that slashing carbon pollution—even drastically—won't be enough to keep Earth from seriously overheating."

The Maritime Executive: Report: Geoengineering Won't Achieve Paris Accord's Goals

"The countries of the world still need to cut their carbon dioxide emissions to reach the Paris Agreement’s climate targets. Relying on tree planting and alternative technological solutions such as geoengineering will not make enough of a difference."

Iordan, C.; et al. (2018): Contribution of forest wood products to negative emissions

Iordan, C.; Hu, X.; Arvesen, A.; Kauppi, P.; Cherubini, F. (2018): Contribution of forest wood products to negative emissions. Historical comparative analysis from 1960 to 2015 in Norway, Sweden and Finland. In: Carbon balance and management 13 (1), S. 12. DOI: 10.1186/s13021-018-0101-9.

"In this work, we quantify the net CO2 emissions and the temporary carbon storage in forest products in Norway, Sweden and Finland for the period 1960–2015, and investigate their correlation. We use a Chi square probability distribution to model the oxidation rate of C over time in HWPs, taking into consideration specific half-lives of each category of products. We model the forest regrowth and estimate the time-distributed C removal. We also integrate the specific HWP flows with an emission inventory database to quantify the associated life-cycle emissions of fossil CO2, CH4 and N2O."
