Abstract

There is no shortcut to a carbon neutral society; solutions are urgently required from both energy & industrial sectors and global ecosystems. While the former is often held accountable and emphasized in terms of its emissions reduction capab- ility, the latter (recently termed natural climate solutions) should also be assessed for potential and limitations by the sci- entific community, the public, and policy makers.
