Girst is full of insighful and well written articles that initiate debate, activism and learning for wider sutainable issues that people can relate to. I frequent the placemaking pages, getting inspiration on new policies, research, projects and inventions that promote a better quality of life and support a better quality of environment.

Grist is a neat, opinionated web magazine, discussing some points that we Americans would rather avoid. Sometimes Grist's opinions seem a bit strong, but then, that's the nature of opinions.

The web magazine is entertaining to read, rather than plowing through dull information. I would like to investigate some of their reporting when time permits. They appear to be more negative in their reporting, some positive comments would balance the issues.

In opposition to Fox News, and similar right-wing publications, Grist is a welcome voice on the Internet.

Grist is probably the best (certainly most readable) source for environmental news and reviews on the internet.

Grist keeps me informed about environmental issues. It cuts through uninformed opinion and tells it like it is, often with humor. However, it is serious journalism. All this is in addition to being topical and up to date.

I love Ask Umbra! Her answers, besides being practical, often provide links to reputable studies or products. I have bought products or types of products that have been mentioned on Ask Umbra.

I feel that reading The Daily Grist makes me more thoughtful in my daily life and causes me to consider the choices I am making every day. I wish more people would read it, expecially those to whom we have given our consent to write laws for us.

The articles in Grist have enlightened me, encouraged me to do more, made powerful statements in such a humorous way they truly made me think, cracked me up, taught me to be better at my small attempt to love the earth and all living things, and provided really yummy recipes. I've thoroughly enjoyed every publication and will continue to do so.

Grist articles stimulate an energetic flow of comments related to climate change and related life style change issues. Obama's climate change policy and recipes for shampoo and roadkill are recent memorable topics. Feel free ump in.
