What Went Right - 27 DEC 2016

Once again, three stories from the mainstream media about "what went right", rather than "what went wrong".

Grain growers to benefit from WA whisky distillery expansion by Tyne Logan (ABC Rural, Western Australia).

A boutique distillery in the Great Southern region of Western Australia is expanding their operations by purchasing an old winery in the Porongorup region, with plans to convert this into their head office and main distillery.

WWII bomb is defused in German town of Augsburg on Christmas Day by Associated Press (through ABC Australia)

32,000 households had been evacuated from central Augsburg by 10am on Christmas Day in order for the defusing to take place, and they were given the all-clear at 7pm local time.

'This is possible. We did it': the week Portugal ran on renewables by Sam Jones (Guardian)

Portugal's renewable energy power plants managed to power the entire country for four and a half days earlier this year, giving evidence renewable sources of energy are able to work as the backbone of a country's energy infrastructure.

So there's my three for the day. If you've found any stories of things going right in your news reading, why not share them in the comments?
