In the fall of 2018, the international community has called on large scale implementation of bioenergy to limit global warming to no more than 1.5C by 2100. Not only would this require a complete transformation of the global energy grid, but it will also require significant amounts of biomass inputs from forests. The benefits from this strategy are already being debated within top academic journals.
