YOUR editorial (“project offer high rewards”, The Herald, April 20)
correctly points out the importance of preserving peat in the interest of
captured carbon and it is good to read about the efforts of Loch Lomond and
Trossachs National Park, with Scottish Natural Heritage backing, to restore
damaged areas of peat in the park (“Peat bog plan aims to tackle climate
change”, The Herald, April 20)

Can anyone explain why Scottish Government ministers keep on approving the
construction of wind farms on peat, which results in the destruction of
huge areas of peat for access roads and vast turbine bases in Scotland?
