You know how some people make lemonade out of lemons? At Grist, they’re making lemonade out of looming climate apocalypse.
It’s more fun than it sounds, trust us!
Grist is a source of intelligent, irreverent environmental news and commentary that’s been around since 1999, when the internet was made of rubber bands. They cover climate, energy, food, cities, politics, business, green living, and the occasional adorable baby animal. Each day, they use their Clarity-o-Meter to point their readers to the news that matters most, and to translate wonky issues into stories that make sense.
Their goal is to get people talking, thinking, and taking action. And it’s working: They now reach a community of more than 2 million people a month. Sixty-five percent of them do something based on their content. Mainstream media quote us. Policymakers sit up and take notice. Even their parents take their calls now.
At Grist, they think the fate of the world and the people who live here is a pretty important topic. So they take their work seriously — but they don’t take ourselves too seriously. Because of the many things this planet is running out of, sanctimonious tree-huggers ain’t one of them.
