Why are the 'Zombie' fires in Siberia a ticking climate bomb?

Over the past years, mainly because of Climate Change, Siberia has looked more and more like a Song of Ice and Fire. This situation brings a vicious circle: Peat fires unleash huge quantities of carbon in the atmosphere contributing significantly to climate change that in turn contributes to creating favorable conditions for wildfires. To break this loop, we need to invest on prevention by managing peat fields and we need to use remote sensing to detect peat fires and wildfire to kill them in the egg and avoid the spreading.
