Interesting #longread on the restoration of peat bogs in Scotland (with a section on Indonesia), which help to absorb carbon.
"Globally, peatlands hold more than twice as much carbon as the world’s forests do, according to the United Nations Environment Programme."
@sohkamyung Yes, peatland holds an incredible high percentage of carbon and is very important to be protected and maintained.
Even more important is humus, as it is - or rather was and should be again - part of normal soil.
