    From the article: "But to reduce global temperatures, we need not only to reduce our net emissions to zero, but to move swiftly into net negative carbon emissions territory. That means that overall we will need to take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, not add more."

    We'd best be accelerating our planting of trees!

    considering how many forests are being destroyed i think a
    lot more progress can be made by encouraging countries
    to better protect the ones they have. the practices of farming
    converted land add a lot of CO2 (along with the many other
    problems of land/water/air quality and species losses...) and
    encourage poisoning.

    we really need people to stand up for what little remains.
