Peatland carbon storage is stabilized against catastrophic release of carbon


, : Peatland carbon storage is stabilized against catastrophic release of carbon.

Concerns that global warming may have a domino effect -- unleashing 6 billion tons of carbon in vast expanses of peat in the Northern hemisphere and accelerating warming to disastrous proportions -- may be less justified than previously thought. That's the conclusion of a new study on the topic in ACS' journal Environmental Science & Technology.
