To prevent a rampant climate, we must all do what we can to prevent more carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere. And the sooner the better, but to only reduce emissions to reasonable levels is currently almost impossible so we simply have to vacuum up the abundance that is in the atmosphere . However, this should not be seen as a competitor to tree planting as it must also be done as it creates very many other values such as carbon dioxide buffers, biodiversity, water reservoirs etcetera.
