The Top 5 Happy Eco News Stories for December 5, 2022

Thanks for reading the Top 5 Happy Eco News!

This week we have three guest posts. The first post is by Happy Eco News’ founder Grant Brown who talks about guerrilla gardening and seed bombs and how to get started. The second post is by Melina Sempill Watts who retells the conversation she had with architect Jessica Hall about restoring lost streams. The third post is by Sharon Michelle, MSc Psychology who talks honestly about why nature is suffering and what we need to do.

We also have stories about a crab that was rediscovered after 225 years, how to turn CO2 back into coal, the world’s first CO2 battery, IKEA selling solar panels, and the city Malmö, in Sweden’s green energy solutions.
