In this article, the abstract has been revised such that “30% of the total CO2 increase in the atmosphere since the Industrial Revolution” now reads “30% of the total CO2 increase in the atmosphere, or 14% of total emissions, since the Industrial Revolution.” In addition, the second paragraph in the “Priority areas for restoration, and outcomes” section has had additional text inserted after the second sentence: “This corresponds to 15% of total anthropogenic CO2 emissions in this period, of which 55% were absorbed by terrestrial and marine sinks.” The changes have been made to the HTML and PDF versions of the article.
