A story of Peat Bogs and Heather

When I heard that 'Scientists' had put Heather on top of Peat Boggs, it immediately summoned risqué visions a la ‘Carry on up the Peak District’, Or a worthy ‘joy of love’ sex manual - One hopes they are at least good friends, etc.

Well - I say! We’re measuring the emissions Misses…

More prosaically it seems the intent is to restore the balance of the Peak District bogs, by growing live heather on them, to prevent erosion and possible resultant carbon dioxide emissions.

What next? Gagging MPs? There is a source of carbon dioxide emissions if ever there was one ;-)
