Grist is useful to me every single day, keeping me informed on the latest environmental news and thinking. And it's always interesting. My day wouldn't be complete without Grist.

I have to say I have followed Grist for a few years but today I found myself rolling on the floor with the great article by Jess Zimmerman. If it wasn't so funny it would not be Grist -with the clear and present danger of the real news stories. Well done Grist- mill out that news as always with the best on the net for truth in the newz.

I host a green talk radio show every Saturday, I write a bi-weekly newsletter, I have a facebook fan page called Mrs. Green's World, a website all about sustainability and I tweet. I need good, reliable informative content. I rely on Grist to provide me with good ideas, research I can count on and information to share with my listeners and readers.

I am a total fan and Umbra wanna be because she provides information to the general public in a fun, informative and sometimes outrageous way. A perfect example is her video on saving water.

Grist does an outstanding job of collecting and synthesizing the major environmental newsworthy stories every day, and providing a link to the source of the story. This useful service is an excellent help in keeping current on a broad array of environmental issues.

GRIST Rocks!

I wish I had the time to read it every day and follow every single link. I've read GRIST off and on for at least ten years. Their ability to simplify complex environmental issues, and bring out information that standard news outlets skip is critical.

The well crafted writing and humor helps soften what usually ends up pissing me off. (e.g., Can you say, approval of Roundup Ready alfalfa?)

I can't tell you how many times I HAVE followed a link on GRIST and ended up with really great data, information I can use to start political arguments, etc.

Read GRIST if you want to be part of the well-informed public.

I work for a foundation, a proud funder of Grist, and I have had the opportunity to get to know them well as an organization over the past two years. Grist provides to the average reader unparalled coverage of current environmental events, and environmental issues on the horizon, and does so with humor and insight. If Grist were to disappear, the information they disseminate would not reach as wide an audience, and the fight for our environment would suffer exponentially.

Grist keeps me abreast of the most recent environmental concerns. In turn, I am able to share with other staff of our small non profit nature conservancy. Their information gives food for thought whether or not I agree is not as important as reading about the issues and various thoughts concerning them. The daily receipt of Grist in me inbox has also provided me with opportunities to speak with my congressmen and keep current on their activities!
