You can’t keep a good man down, but it seems ex BBC climate change activist, Richard Black, has slipped off to pastures new…and unknown?
He was Director of Communications at the Global Ocean Commission but hasn’t tweeted since December 17 and that position looks to have been filled now by a ‘Justin Woolford’.
Justin Woolford, Director of Communications
Justin joined the Commission in January 2014 bringing extensive experience in communications and campaigning to the Secretariat. He runs The Change Co., a consultancy supporting social and environmental change communications, and has previously run major international projects for WWF and The Co-operative, together with various civil society and private sector partners.
Let’s remember exactly why Black was so good at his job….more activist than journalist:
The BBC’s Environment Correspondent, Richard Black, gave this BBC College of Journalism presentation on impartiality and reporting climate change. He was speaking in the wake of the BBC Trust Report by Prof Steve Jones on science reporting and impartiality.
