Grist occupies a much needed niche in the environmental media field--comedy and whit! In a field where almost everyone involved is depressed, Grist steps up and cheers both the efforts being done and urges us all to keep fighting the good fight with smart sexy writing. Three cheers for Grist!

Grist is great. I come here for knowledgeable news that I can't seem to get anywhere else. It's tough to wade through all the other, larger news sites to find nothing of substance, but I can always rely on Grist to give me great content.

In this broken world, it is difficult to keep one's head and chin up, no? In my courses, some students even call me Dr. Doom because of all the social, political, cultural and environmental problems I raise. So it is great to have a regular dose of Environmental Early Warning (that's EEW, for you not paying attention) that manages to maintain good humor. That's my GRIST. Their reporting keeps my spirits up and provides great data for teaching.

Garbage has been my game for 20 years this June: recycling, waste prevention, and compost. Plus I stir up climate change issues where possible. All this needs the ballast of humor. I love Grist for bringing humor as well as rigorous reporting to the hard environmental issues of our time. Make me smile! Here’s where I’m plugging my pet project Washington Green Schools www.wagreenschools.org – new and rockin’ – 89 schools in the state already active, and 12 have qualified at Level One! Thanks for keeping me rolling.
