What we’re reading this week:
- Wind energy saves small Wyoming towns in a pandemic, brings more permanent jobs than Keystone XL. “For these small towns in Wyoming, budgets aren’t that big, so if you had a steady, reliable $5 million a year, that’s a big deal.”
- Bird calls identifying new species. How many new species are waiting to be discovered? “A lot.”
- Tricky tricky trash pandas!
