Part 3 – Finlands dirty secret

12-14-2020 This is the third and last part to my series of three in The Outdoor Journal on Finnish peat for energy. Much happened in the year it took to publish all three parts and it will remain interesting to see how Finland will tackle this ongoing problem to become fossil free in near future….


Peat as an energy source has been used for ages in Finland,
causing massive environmental damage. A quick phase-out of fossile energy resources will lead into creation of new wildlife sanctuaries by rewilding former peat bogs.
