Great news from Cancun.

CO2 target to be boosted by peat bog rules change - Scotsman.com News

Bogs that have been damaged by poor forestry, farming or drainage systems cause "carbon leakage", sending millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere each year.

Scientists estimate peat bogs in Scotland store three billion tonnes of harmful gases, most stored deep underground. When the bogs are damaged, the carbon leaks to the surface and some of it is released into the atmosphere. Figures compiled by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Peatland Programme (IUCNPP) show that the the UK's peat bogs emit as much carbon dioxide UK-wide as 1 million homes.

IUCNPP director Clifton Bain said: "There is a new proposal going through the land use part of the discussions that will allow countries to include the restoration of damaged peat bogs in carbon reduction targets. The impact of all of the past damage to the peat bogs is certainly emitting carbon into the atmosphere. If the bogs are mended, that can help significantly."

This means that damage to peat bogs caused by road-building for forestry or wind farm construction will be accounted for in future. This radically alter the economics of peat big destruction so favored by the bogus "renewable" energy industry.

Science, data, truth Vs greenie pothead lies. Popcorn time!

Do ecologists not want to preserve the bogs? And this helps their argument?
