Grist gives me information with verifiable scientific documentation that I can't get easily from any other single source. I hope they keep it up. Many of their articles have literally changed my life and viewpoint with their consistent uncovering of the truth for facts I should know but don't because they are not reported by mainstream media.

Generally, I skim through the topics sent out by Grist and if there is an article relevant to my interest, I read through it completely and often file it for future use.

Grist is consistently one of the most reliable and best written and edited online magazines of any kind and particular on the environment. It is one of the first sites I check on a daily basis for up to date information and stories on the environment that are generally covered in more mainstream media. A really excellent source with a truly dedicated staff.

Because of Grist, I have become an environmentally informed individual. I have learned so much from these articles and It has pushed me to take action to protect and preserve the environment. I am so thankful for Grist's information and humor. I want to get involved in a sustainable career so I can do my part, like Grist has done theirs. Thank you!

Earth is being sacrificed by misguided people interested only in growing profit. All of the hard-fought accomplishments to protect the environment and protect people's health are quickly being trashed. Grist provides me with constant motivation to talk to my friends and lobby lawmakers to make moral choices to protect our people and environment.

Grist Magazine is a "go to " source for environmental information. They cover a wide variety of green topics -- with zest & a light heart but solid facts. I post many of their stories to the website of our Minnesota environmental group that is fighting garbage incineration -- NAB (Neighbors Against the Burner). Kudos go to the Grist Magazine staff for providing continuously pertinent & readable environmental information!

Grist...best part of my day. David Brower once said "Have fun while saving the World, or you're just going to depress yourself"...Grist gets it!

Business as usual, on an angry, endangered world.

"Tea. Earl Grey. Hot." The elephant in the living room is drinking tea with his donkey friend. Unfortunat­ely, this is now a tea party.

My "SCENIC" New Hampshire has 12 miles of coastline, capped with Seabrook Station. I see oil rigs..."LI­VE FREE OR DIE".

They say the Old Man collapsed, hearing rumors of fracking.

Allow Internet access to Everyone, so we can all view the Earth's 'dead zones'.

The state of the planet is appalling, and so is the state of our ability to do something about it.

How may we help?
