I don't think reverting temperatures to pre-industrial levels is attainable. However, If we can find ways to stop increasing CO2 levels from significantly increasing, we can keep the temperature down to below 2 degrees C. At least that's what many of the models predict. At those levels, and given sufficient time, the oceans and rain forests may be able to begin reducing CO2 again.
Exactly... it is such a stretch just to get to carbon neutral at this point, getting to carbon negative is not really attainable.
