Grist Blames ‘Ridiculous’ Climate Change for Oroville Dam By Julia A. Seymour Climate alarmists always want to have it both ways on weather: blaming drought, floods, storms, and more on manmade global warming.

Grist Fundraises on Trump Scorn

Grist Fundraises on Trump  Scorn, Hyperbole By Aly Nielsen To some, Trump’s election was just another day in the democratic process. But to others, it would be environmental catastrophe. In early December, the Grist website ran a pop-up fundraising ad fantasizing about the day its readers would celebrate overcoming the “destructive environmental policies of a Trump presidency.” The ad redirected readers to Grist’s donate page and encouraged them to “become a sustaining supporter of independent environmental journalism.” Grist’s so called...
