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.

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.
