We'd like our readers to start paying for Daily Maverick

More specifically, we'd like those who can afford to pay to start paying. What it comes down to is whether or not you value Daily Maverick. Think of us in terms of your daily cappuccino from your favourite coffee shop. It costs around R35. That’s R1,050 per month on frothy milk. Don’t get us wrong, we’re almost exclusively fuelled by coffee. BUT maybe R200 of that R1,050 could go to the journalism that’s fighting for the country?

We don’t dictate how much we’d like our readers to contribute. After all, how much you value our work is subjective (and frankly, every amount helps). At R200, you get it back in Uber Eats and ride vouchers every month, but that’s just a suggestion. A little less than a week’s worth of cappuccinos.

We can't survive on hope and our own determination. Our country is going to be considerably worse off if we don’t have a strong, sustainable news media. If you’re rejigging your budgets, and it comes to choosing between frothy milk and Daily Maverick, we hope you might reconsider that cappuccino.

We need your help. And we’re not ashamed to ask for it.

Obama will work with Congress (and rest of world) on climate

America’s senior environmental official, the Environmental Protection Agency’s Lisa Jackson, told the Copenhagen conference the Obama administration's moves to catch up on and cut greenhouse gases would be in tandem with congressional action and was not an effort to do an end-run around the Congress. Jackson made these comments the same day Tuvalu was rebuffed in its effort to demand action against major polluting countries. The EPA determined earlier this week that the greenhouse gas emissions endanger the health of Americans, and, as such, the pollutants should be regulated under the Clean Air Act and that the EPA can issue regulations without additional congressional legislation.
