“I give to Grist because you’re one of the few worthy lights in the murky, besmirched, and smug world of ‘news.’ I work full-time for Transition Network, and half of our battle is fighting the influence of a media that serves its paymasters well, by duping, distracting, and dumbing down its audience. If all journalists and their support teams had the guts, smarts, and ethics of the Grist posse, what an amazing world we might live in.”

Thanks for fighting the good fight, Ben. Thanks so much for supporting us all the way from the U.K.!
