Today marks the first Good News Monday, I am aiming to post once every week with a load of good news from the world (that doesn't revolve around COVID-19) so we can take a break from the loud and obvious news of the pandemic and focus on some good things!

So the Coronavirus is now changing the way I'm blogging, it really doesn't feel like the right time to be posting about sustainability in terms of lifestyle change. Life itself is weird and difficult at the moment without adding new sustainable changes and so my content for the foreseeable future will be less guides and how to's on living your whole life more sustainable and more good news, things I'm getting up to in isolation and just fun things!

This does mean I am committing to making two blog posts a week (lucky you) as I don't want this to be the only content on my blog each week! Here's to some good news.

Now is When We All Learn to Darn Our Socks Again
A wonderful article about visible mending (which I am very into) and the growing trend of people repairing their clothes. It shares some wonderful artists who do amazing thing with fabric and thread!

Ultra-Rare Dwarf Kingfisher Fledgling Photographed for The First Time
Thought to be extinct this tiny and beautiful bird has eluded scientists for over 130 years. Biologist Miguel David De Lion found a nestig pot of these birds and captured these beautiful images, it's pink, it's tiny, it's absolutely beautiful

UK greenhouse gas emissions fall for Seventh year in a row
This is great news, more than a third of the electricity here in the UK was generated by renewables in 2019! Of course we have to keep this trend going and invest even more in renewables to have a viable zero carbon future here in the Uk but at least we're headed in the right direction.

Citizen Science is Helping to save endangered Yellow Cardinals
This link is for a scientific journal article rather than news but citizen science efforts on tracking birds in Argentina have allowed scientists to pinpoint where these endangered birds are living, raise awareness for the cause, and to plan for their conservation going forward. Citizen scientists are often key in helping to track and help wild populations of birds and animals.

Global efforts on Ozone help to reverse southern jet stream damage
I for one did not know that the Ozone and the southern jet streams were connected, but apparently so. And the fact that the ozone is repairing (yay for the ban on ozone depleting aerosols). Though this gives a mixed outcome, with some countries weather changing for the better and some for the worse, and rising CO2 levels cut move it again. But it does show that if humans act globally and swiftly we can reverse some of the damage we have done to the earth.

Not Just Boring Old Bones: Six Incredible Dinosaur Fossils
Not necessarily current news but this article talks about some of the most amazing fossils that have ever been found, and what they tell us about the history of life on earth. From dino fossils with skin still intact, whole feathers preserved in amber to fossilised dinosaur brain. Definitely a cool one!
