Y'all, planting trees willy-nilly will not solve our emissions problems.

@CrowtherLab made (at least) 7 major errors:
1. Total historical emissions are 2x their number (600 GtC, not 300)
2. They overestimate max C per forest area

1/4
3. They ignore existing soil & veg carbon in target areas
4. They ignore that it takes time for carbon to accumulate (= time lags in sequestration)
5. They ignore feedbacks w/ albedo in future projections...
6. ...& feedbacks w/ [CO2]
7. Afforestation is not reforestation!

2/4
