“I give to GRIST because I love, love, love the satirical, entertaining delivery style of environmental news that can sometimes be crushingly depressing. Not to make light of important issues … I really care deeply about the environment and the terrible plight that it’s in. [My kids] do a great job of reminding me what I’m fighting for in my day job (livable planet for them). Is there anyone out there with kids who doesn’t care about the health of their family, the environment and the future of our planet?”
