Legal Loophole to Extract Peat
Plans to dig out large amounts of Scotland’s precious peat from a landowner’s estate near Edinburgh look set to go ahead despite widespread opposition from conservationists and government.

A loophole in the law is likely to allow peat to be extracted from Auchencorth Moss on the Penicuik Estate in breach of local and national planning policy. Peat is a vital store of carbon, and is meant to be protected to help prevent climate pollution.

The peat extraction is planned to take place in a local wildlife area, and next to a site of special scientific interest protected under conservation law. Mining and using peat releases carbon pollution, which disrupts the climate.

Persistent High Lake Levels Set Stage for Big Flood - Heavy rains caused widespread flooding in the Madison area. When Lake Monona crested, officials began harvesting the aquatic vegetation in an effort to increase the water flow out of the chain of lakes. Staff used ten mechanical weed harvesters to remove over 270 loads of aquatic plants. That doubled the flow of water leaving the chain of lakes, so more water is leaving the Yahara chain than what’s entering, allowing lake levels to stabilize.
