I hope this gives you a little motivation to deal with everything that today throws at you. No matter how far you have come and how you feel: You can do it. I believe in you.
And to keep the good vibes going here some good news too:
You might have figured by now that I’ve decided to become a rebel for life and have joined Extinction Rebellion to make a difference for our future generations. So far my contribution is to write poetry about the climate crisis, the questions I ask in connection with it and the feelings that comes with it all. I’ve decided not to add any hashtags because I get more feedback and can start conversations this way. I still need to contact my mentor at Extinction Rebellion for the Extinction Rebellion University and I keep you updated on any progress.
One topic close to my heart is planting trees which would help to store a lot of the co2 we are currently letting escape into the atmosphere. A couple of weeks ago I introduced you to Ecosia the search engine that plants trees in this Good News Tuesday post.
Today I found another Good News story about trees. Apparently the Crowther Lab of ETH Zurich has published a study in the journal Science that shows that planting trees would be the most effective method to combat the climate crisis. It even figured out how many we need to plant and where the best places would be. Find out more in the following video or in this article by the Good News Network. If you can’t play the video in this post just follow the link underneath it and it will lead you to its YouTube location which also includes the text for visually impaired readers.

Isn’t this brilliant? We all can do something to heal the climate even if it is just to search with Ecosia and let them plant the trees. So go on. Do it. You know you want to 🙂
And if you are in need for some more good news please head over to JoAnna’s Blog and find some more.
I am also still in the process of integrating old posts. Today’s “blast from the past” is a “SoCS” post from 2015.
I can’t believe I know Linda and her Stream of Consciousness Saturday for such a long time. Not that I am around much lately but I am in utter awe how she manages to keep it going. You rock, Linda!
“Happy Birthday” SoCS!
I am glad we are acquainted and maybe we’ll become friends :-)!
