Hello Grist readers,

I’m a realist. And I tend to be a straight shooter, whether writing about energy policy or pitching in on a fundraiser. So spy puns aside, I’ll just ask:

Would you give just $5 to support Grist’s indispensable green news and commentary?

While dastardly adversaries can be a pain, what we really need to do is get more people talking and thinking about the issues that matter most. After all, as the saying goes, it takes a village to combat an apocalypse.

Grist readers, as any climate realist knows, procrastination will get us nowhere. We only have one more day to reach our goal and just 1,000 more donations to go. Make a donation today to help us reach our goal of 2,500 donations by Dec. 11 so we can continue making progress towards a better, brighter future.

Pragmatically,
David Roberts
Grist Department of Reality Checks

P.S. Did we mention that gifts of $50 or more will be matched by a generous, anonymous ally?

P.P.S. Rather not give online? You’re also welcome to send a check: Grist, 710 Second Avenue, Suite 860, Seattle, WA 98104.
