Even John Kerry is blogging about the environment – giving updates on the progress, or lack thereof, on the Senate Energy Bill! He blogged at The Grist yesterday.

Speaking of those funky folks from Seattle, on Wednesday night The Grist hosted a reader party right here in DC. The “cheap” organic wine and beer weren’t really much of a deal… but it was awesome to meet and mingle with a bunch of environmentalists in the area, and those visiting from afar. 

The Grist is a good source for environmental news & commentary – definitely witty but not so cynical that you just want to run away into the woods, or go buy a hummer and get it over with.
