    Crap. More carbon stores located within economically stressed territory. Good luck trying to use anti-climate-change policies to stop them from clearing forests and draining swamp.

    Notice the video’s spin-meister’ing – “the key to halting climate change”… The truth is obviously different. It’s rather the “oh s***t ” key to understanding how climate change can release far more carbon than we thought. Didn’t we just learn that it was the drying warmth of tropical forests that is causing the spike in CO2 (in addition to China’s added CO2) the past two years? This is bad news, not good news.

    I have been in several rain forests in Africa and South America. This deep peat thing is mostly BS. Most of the rain forest is a tiny sliver of decomposing plant material in the top few inches, the soils below that is essentially sterile sand and clay mixed in with the usual rocks.
