Brown, C.; et al. (2019): Achievement of Paris climate goals unlikely due to time lags in the land system
Brown, C.; Alexander, P.; Arneth, A.; Holman, I.; Rounsevell, M. (2019): Achievement of Paris climate goals unlikely due to time lags in the land system. In: Nat. Clim. Chang. 9 (3), S. 203–208. DOI: 10.1038/s41558-019-0400-5.
"These shortcomings are partially the result of avoidable ‘blind spots’ relating to time lags inherent in the implementation of land-based mitigation strategies. Key blind spots include inconsistencies between different land-system policies, spatial and temporal lags in land-system change, and detrimental consequences of some mitigation options. We suggest that improved recognition of these processes is necessary to identify achievable mitigation actions, avoiding excessively optimistic assumptions and consequent policy failures."
