She means biz  

Don't let the mild mannered looks fool you ... she means biz.


Like you, I'm focused on all things green. But that's not just because I care about crucial issues like climate change, peak oil, and organic beer. It's also because I'm Grist's money master, and it's my job to make sure the cash drawer stays full, so we can keep bringing you the green lowdown.

Please make a donation to Grist today.

It's also my job to make sure you get the most bang for your bling. And I can tell you, the Grist staff are working their tails off -- not just to bring you the news, but to bring you great green-living columns like Ask Umbra, The Bottom Line, and From A to Green, with tips and tricks to green everything from your lawn to your love life. But in order to keep it up, seeing as we're a nonprofit and all, we need to raise $60,000 by Tuesday, June 17.
