Hello, Grist readers.

We have two weeks to thwart an evil plan.

Would you give just five bucks to bulwark Grist’s indispensable green news against a villainous threat?

Reader support helps sustain our work. Donate today to keep our climate news free. All donations TRIPLED!

James Bond had Goldfinger. Maxwell Smart had KAOS. Inspector Gadget had Dr. Claw. At Grist, our evil nemesis is a whole coven of dark forces intent on wrecking the climate, from fiendish oil-lovin’ billionaires to crooked coal-beholden politicians. Luckily, the Grist Agency is committed to fending them off with a whole lotta smarts — and a dash of style.

Every day, we reveal all the crucial information you need to navigate this ever-changing world we live in. But it takes more than just a goldeneye for great stories to create a brighter planetary future. It takes some shekels, too. So please, parachute in some dollars, pounds, whatever you got.

Grist readers, these climate-crushing villains are threatening to “send us a message” by dismantling the Grist irrev-o-blaster — the device that dispatches our irreverent green news to millions — and we have just two weeks to stop them. Make a donation today to help us reach our goal of 2,500 donations by Dec. 11 so we can foil their plot and pursue our ultimate mission: you know, saving the planet.
