Grist is a great source of information regarding a host of issues/topics. I use Grist to learn about national and global environmental issues, additionally I can count on grist to give me reviews of household products, inform me about new bike paths in cities I often visit. I forward articles to friends on a regular basis. Currently, I am enjoying their three part series on what private schools can teach us about public school lunches. As a private school teacher, it's articles like these that keep me coming back!

I have been a reader of Grist for several years, and I recently wrote a quick note to one of the writers, whose work I find to be consistently excellent (included below). In general, I think it's a great publication. It really helps me keep in touch with what's going on environmentally without investing inordinant amounts of time that I don't have to do so. Dear David Roberts, I've read numerous articles of yours over time, and have always been impressed with your proficiency as a writer and researcher, and with your sane, balanced voice. I thought I'd just take a moment to write and tell you how much I appreciate what you offer on a daily basis; I feel that one of the main problems with our current culture is the dwindling of actual news delivered by reporters who understand the power and purpose of their actions, and you are one of those holding the line against the loss of our collective exchange of real, independent information and analysis. It just warms my heart to read work such as yours! I hope you continue to share your excellent talents for a long time to come. Thank you.
