Grist provides current event analysis on issues about which I care deeply. They also provide a forum for members to discuss the news (and the opinions of others who post.) Based on this back and forth, I have formulated policies and practices here at work and in my personal life to live lighter on this planet, make smarter food and energy choices, and goad my cohorts into making informed choices as well.

Grist is my daily source for environmental news. I get their daily e-mail and always make sure I make time to read it. I find them to be cutting edge, up to date, and accurate. I also enjoy their use of multimedia to enhance their reporting. A great source for news!

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.
