Good news can come in short stories. Costa Rica just ran the country’s electrical grid on renewable energy for 113 days. Thanks to solar, wind, and geothermal they didn’t have to rely on fossil fuels. Each country has different resources, and some may not be able to reach 100%, but more countries are finding it doable, are doing it, and have less reason to return to old, smoky ways. Congratulations, Costa Rica!
