Climate campaigner Jim begs forgiveness for coming up short in the blog relay - a whistle-stop tour of Greenpeace staff here in the UK. Click here to catch up on the other entries.
I spend most of my days thinking about coal. Sometimes a bit of renewable energy makes its way in there, just to cheer me up you realise, but mainly it's about the black stuff.
The principle cause of climate change has been the object of my intention for about two years now, during which time I've led the Greenpeace campaign against EON's plans for a new coal fired power station at Kingsnorth. I formulate campaign strategies and then beg my boss for funds so that my team can carry them out. I'm the nerd that sits in the corner trying to decipher all the clever tricks played by the government and industry to maintain our fossil fuel dominated energy mix.
Sometimes the scale of what we're up against can feel overwhelming. But then I spend 10 minutes with my friend and colleague Paul and it all feels all right again. I love taking on our opponents with my friends around me.
