Blame the Bogs

I have just watched a story on the lunchtime BBC news coming from the Peak District – minutes away from me. Apparently the Peat Bogs in the Peak District and elsewhere store more carbon than the forests of the UK and France combined. When the peat gets exposed it actually gives out that carbon. Apparently this is a big issue. Now I know we shouldnt use peat on our gardens – but come on. Now they are saying we shouldn't walk in our national parks as we may disturb the peat. Whatever next – rationed breathing as humans are a big producer of CO2!
