it's almost as if the scientific process is at work
so have I got this right. some scientists (or 'boffins' to put them in their place) have done some research and conclude one thing. some other scientists have done some research and conclude something else.
whatever next?! reasoned debate, more research and improved understanding of atmospheric processes.
or Daily Mail-style articles like this.
for another point of view on the role of peat bogs, it doesn't take much to find (in an "academic paper")
'Carbon respiration from subsurface peat accelerated by climate warming in the subarctic', Ellen Dorrepaal, et al, Nature 460, 616-619 doi:10.1038/nature08216
I often wonder why El Reg is 'Sci-Tech News for the World'. Keep it to tech, at least until Nature/PRL/BMJ start reviewing ultrabooks.
