Wow — somebody spent a lot of time taking notes at Grist, then found some deep, deep pockets and spent a lot of money putting up a slick corporate environmentalism-lite site called “Mother Nature Network.”

It’s a gagger.

Grist relies on the support of generous readers like you. Donate today to keep our climate news free. All donations matched!

The only blessing is that, given the cost structure required to keep all those beautiful people going, it’s either going to be a vanity enterprise (like the Washington Times) or short-lived.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.
