Grist has been a vital source for educating the public about issues of great impact to our world and its wildlife and human populations. It routinely brings issues to our attention that often are not addressed in the typical media outlet such as radio, internet and TV and if so is given only a cursory mention with no details or discussion - which is what is needed. Grist is an excellent investigative resource and I will continue to recommend and utilize this organization for up to date and critical review and explaination of serious issues that our country must address. I thank them for their relentless search for the truth as well as their campaigns to urge readers to get involved in resolution of issues facing our great country.

Grist has a wealth of information regarding health and environmental issues which is cutting edge and timely. I have been reading their website daily for as long as I can remember. Also, I have referred many friends and family who also discuss the issues addressed on this site. It saves time and is accurate. I look forward to their e-mails and read them thoroughly.

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

Located new material providers; connected with new ideas for solutions - on a personal level I have become active in the organic movement - I now raise much of my own produce which I share with the local food banks, friends and neighbors while encouraging others to start growing their own gardens. I encourage others to stop dousing their yards with detrimental chemicals as well.

Wish they had a more secure source of money. Meanwhile they do an excellent job with what sources they have.

I work with an environmental justice youth group called Closer to Earth Youth Gardens and Grist is our best source for 'green news' and just about every week I am sharing information with our youth or other groups about what I learn from the Grist newsletter.

They are incredibly
informative.

I enjoy reading grist because it gives me different perspectives on topics that effect our society and the world. It lets me interact with information about factors that effect agriculture in a way that I can use to expand my personal practice of family based agriculture and rasing my own food.
Grist gives me a balance to the other sources of media I use to get information (Orion, NY Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR, Fox, CNN) so that I can look at a cross section of how our society is viewing topics.
Grist researches topics thouroughly and reports consicely. At times I wish that the articles were longer and provided more details and information, rather than having us look at more than one short article. At times the single short articles are thought provoking and provide a starting point for discussion for students in my biology, agriculture and environmental science classes. Grist is a tool that can be used to get students to critically think about media information in the world and be able to defend their point of view critically because they are learning to think critically.

I use articles from grist to point out general ideas and trends in science and agriculture.

Have articles archived and indexed in a way that they can be easily accessed to show trends in the different areas covered by grist. It would make Grist easier to cite and to use in educating the public, and in self eduction.

I get the Grist RSS feed daily. I like their cheeky but informative stories. It's a good overview of both local (Pacific Northwest) and national environmental news. But like a lot of websites, their site is too busy with a bunch of stuff. I think protecting nature requires more focus on a smaller number of priorities. I ask myself the question, "What's the most important thing I can do with my limited time, money, and energy?" I don't really get an answer to that question from Grist (or anybody else, for that matter).

List the top 5 or so environmental priorities, and the solutions to these problems in the form of who can do what. For example, for problem A, politicians can do __________, business and organizations can do ________, and individuals can do __________. For Problem B, etc.

I read GRIST online every day without fail. I depend on it for the most recent environmental information- an area I care very much about. I have learned information about food there that I would not have found anyplace else. (And as an ex-librarian I read a lot :-)
I forward GRIST more often
than any other emails I receive.
GRIST is unique; no other online source communicates the same quality of information about living healthy and green - and does it every day!

I turn to Grist daily for news, articles, and blogs. Their site is not only informative, it is extremely entertaining, one of the main reasons that I keep coming back for more.
