Five Things #156

Every Tuesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. More trees, please — Tree planting 'has mind-blowing potential' to tackle climate crisis

  2. ... And fewer tote bags? — How Britain fell in love with the tote bag – and why it’s a dangerous fiction

  3. An interesting podcast (from the Guardian's Today in Focus) on land ownership in England. Strangely, the Land Registry "can only pin down the ownership of about 80% of the country" 🤨 — Who owns England?

  4. Now something slightly more light-hearted — Snowball: Cockatoo who can pull off 14 different moves is first non-human animal known to dance to a beat

  5. Pretty clever! — AI used to solve disputed songwriting credits of Beatles hits

That's all for this week. If you enjoyed it, sign up to my newsletter and you'll get the next one delivered to your inbox.

PS, there won’t be a Five Things next week. Normal service will resume the following Tuesday.
