The article reports on the potential benefits of bogs for carbon dioxide (CO2) emission in the North West of England. A research conducted the Wildlife Trusts revealed that the region's bogs could absorb CO2 emissions of more than 55,000 people annually. The trust is aiming to reverse the loss and turn peat mines and drained bogs back in to havens for wildlife.
