Renewable non-renewable resource

When enough emotion is included and the numbers to be checked are forgotten, peat and peatlands are a dwindling natural resource in Finland. The use of peat must therefore be phased out. Energy peat production began in practice in Finland after the oil crisis caused by the Middle East war in the mid-1970s. From then until today, approximately 730 million cubic meters of energy peat and about 70 million cubic meters of growth and bedding peat have been produced in Finland, i.e. a total of 800 million cubic meters. A huge number, but wait.
