We all know the saying.
"When life gives you lemons...make lemonade" Right?
But what about when life gives you lemons, oil spills, toxic products, filthy politicians, and the looming climate apocalypse?
At Grist, we serve green news with a load of smarts and a splash of sass. You'll be stirred, not shaken.
We know this stuff is serious.
After all, we are standing at the edge of the void, the brink of total annihilation, powerless as the planet cooks and we all meet our fiery ends!
But we also know that lively voices, inspiring stories, and funny headlines are what get people to look, listen, and help turn this planetary ship around.
The occasional fuzzy-wuzzy baby-animal video helps too.
We've had a lot of laughts, but we've also inspired tons of people to get off their butts and take action: from shopping differently to starting urban gardens to pushing for better transportation options to demanding change from the suits in charge.
We've made real progress happen, from the halls of Congress to the hills of Hollywood.
But there's so much more to do. And one thing missing:
Yeah, that's right, you.
Want to impress people with your astonishing knowledge of current events? Want to save money at home AND make your community stronger AND help the planet avoid total catastrophe?
Grist is the place. Welcome.
No Birkenstocks required.
Grist: Read it. Share it. Love it. Support it.
Grist. A beacon in the smog.
