“I give to Grist because their articles are witty, snarky, and captivating — that’s how I like to keep abreast on the important trends in energy and sustainability. I work with a group of self-identifying ‘energy geeks’ that promotes community-based clean energy in Minnesota. We find so much good fodder for our energy brains to munch on. Some people buy doughnuts for the office, I’ll put a lil’ money towards Grist to keep the delicious news comin’!”

Thanks, Michelle. Our writers are baking up more great content for you right now. Bon appétit! 

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.
