    Came across this tonight. Thought it was interesting. There was a mention in one or more threads on here about the use of peat was instigating the destruction of freshwater peat swamps in SE Asia. (I think I have this right.)

    What this article mentions is how there is a distinctly measurable increase in CO2 when the swamps are converted to oil palm or pulpwood trees. I thought this might be of interest to some on here. (Also, wasn't sure which forum this really fit into, so I stuck it in this one.)
