Heard any good news lately?  In addition to the latest on the Gulf oil spill, which is still very bad news, we’re bringing you some positive stories on a growing green economy (weeee!) and new developments in recycling (yay!):

  1. A bummer for non-coastal U. S. songbirds:  the side effects of the oil spill might mess up their migrations.  (Mongabay)
  2. A new study claims that the U.S. could completely get rid of coal emissions in 20 years, using only current technologies and/or stuff that will be ready to go within a decade.  (EcoGeek)
  3. Will the oil spill spur changes in public opinion– and policy– toward climate and clean energy?  (CleanTechnica)
  4. A new report shows that the green economy is growing, but slowly.  (Green)
  5. Pepsi rolls out a sort-of reverse vending machine that recycles cans and bottles and gives out prizes.  (GreenBiz)
