I did not know peat bogs are carbon sinks. Interesting.

I do my part by drinking as much peat as possible.

Peat is just adolescent coal.

In our research, we encountered a track that divided the largest unrecognised blanket bog we found in the Cantabrian Mountains into two separate peatlands. The rupture is draining the bog and likely releasing carbon as the peat dries and breaks down

Stop the machines!  Shut it all down!  They found a drain!  My God, a drain?  DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?

True.  Plus, if you preserve peat bogs, then you can dig it up and burn it for even more power.
