The destruction of the world's peatlands is a climate killer because peatlands store C02. If they are drained, the greenhouse gas is released into the atmosphere. For the first time, a camera team visits peat cutting areas of German companies in Latvia and Lithuania. Susanne Brahms and Rainer Krause interview peat producers, German and Baltic environmentalists. Are German companies destroying peatlands in the Baltic States to satisfy our hunger for peat?
