In this broken world, it is difficult to keep one's head and chin up, no? In my courses, some students even call me Dr. Doom because of all the social, political, cultural and environmental problems I raise. So it is great to have a regular dose of Environmental Early Warning (that's EEW, for you not paying attention) that manages to maintain good humor. That's my GRIST. Their reporting keeps my spirits up and provides great data for teaching.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The ways my students can use their data in learning critical thinking about the environment.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The way they maintain humor in the face of so much that is wrong.

Grist is a great source of information regarding a host of issues/topics. I use Grist to learn about national and global environmental issues, additionally I can count on grist to give me reviews of household products, inform me about new bike paths in cities I often visit. I forward articles to friends on a regular basis. Currently, I am enjoying their three part series on what private schools can teach us about public school lunches. As a private school teacher, it's articles like these that keep me coming back!

I have been a reader of Grist for several years, and I recently wrote a quick note to one of the writers, whose work I find to be consistently excellent (included below). In general, I think it's a great publication. It really helps me keep in touch with what's going on environmentally without investing inordinant amounts of time that I don't have to do so. Dear David Roberts, I've read numerous articles of yours over time, and have always been impressed with your proficiency as a writer and researcher, and with your sane, balanced voice. I thought I'd just take a moment to write and tell you how much I appreciate what you offer on a daily basis; I feel that one of the main problems with our current culture is the dwindling of actual news delivered by reporters who understand the power and purpose of their actions, and you are one of those holding the line against the loss of our collective exchange of real, independent information and analysis. It just warms my heart to read work such as yours! I hope you continue to share your excellent talents for a long time to come. Thank you.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the high-quality information they deliver on a daily basis to a wide readership.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

keep up the good work.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their wide-ranging environmental reporting with a sense of wry humor when appropriate.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

writers, and I only "met" them through their articles.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Educate more people on what's happening to affect the environment in our world, and help them take appropriate action.

Ways to make it better...

I had always had more time to read all their articles!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

paying their staff fairly so that they can continue doing this work indefinitely.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I wish more news organizations had the high standards and willingness to publish actual news (rather than the shouted infotainment that passes for it)that Grist exhibits.

Garbage has been my game for 20 years this June: recycling, waste prevention, and compost. Plus I stir up climate change issues where possible. All this needs the ballast of humor. I love Grist for bringing humor as well as rigorous reporting to the hard environmental issues of our time. Make me smile! Here’s where I’m plugging my pet project Washington Green Schools www.wagreenschools.org – new and rockin’ – 89 schools in the state already active, and 12 have qualified at Level One! Thanks for keeping me rolling.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

inspiring professionals and members of the public to keep working on behalf of the environment. We are also provided with political smarts to understand situations better. The humor and informality help us feel like part of a community working together.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing it grow into such a strong tool for information and education. I really appreciated the coverage of the climate change conference.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

great to talk with my email. I have not met them in person. They are responsive and easy to connect with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide great reporting and communication without have to take time for fundraising.

Ways to make it better...

I could think of something to say here, which I can't. Well, it would be great if they were thoroughly funded so they didn't have to take time to raise funds.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

continual funding to ensure high quality reporting. So much is free and accessible on the internet but the staff needs to be paid.

One thing I'd also say is that...

my world would be a lonelier place without Grist. Sometimes it's hard to keep going when you see all the environment decline, but Grist gives me hope and tools to help change what is going on.

Climate change is one of THE most important issues of our time, trumping health care as there will be no need for health care if there is no planet. The mainstream media does an awful job at covering the topic, relegating it to the science pages, the business pages or relying on wire copy. That’s why we need Grist. Grist does an excellent job of making the complicated uncomplicated, doing that with humor and style, all while preserving journalistic integrity and providing information not found elsewhere.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the general debate over climate change in the country. Grist always serves up informed opinion and sound journalistic reporting.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand coverage!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really influence the climate change debate in a positive way that would result in a win-win situation for the country.

Ways to make it better...

I could read grist.org by osmosis.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the behemoth mainstream media that drowns out important issues with car chases and missing people.
