Sometimes the news is such a downbeat drumbeat (see below) and it seems you have to search out good news. Here's a post at Climateer Economics last month.

Edit 10:14-It was just pointed out to me that the story of the Masai and 911 is behind the NYT reg. req. wall. If you aren't registered here are a few versions of the story:
