Heidi Pickman

“Climate change is one of THE most important issues of our time, trumping health care as there will be no need for health care if there is no planet. The mainstream media does an awful job at covering the topic, relegating it to the science pages, the business pages or relying on wire copy. That’s why we need Grist. Grist does an excellent job of making the complicated uncomplicated, doing that with humor and style, all while preserving journalistic integrity and providing information not found elsewhere.”
