It’s a sad week for the environmental movement, having lost one of its icons, Bob Hunter, to cancer, on Monday. I for one really enjoyed Hunter’s “paper cuts” segment daily on Breakfast Television, I think in many ways anticipating what would become media blogging like you see here, or on Maisonneuve’s media scout.
But to my point. If this job posting is any indication of the direction Greenpeace is taking I’ll be saving my letter-writing energy for an organization that isn’t trying so hard to be hip. The offensive phrase? “the information skills of a journalist paired with the opinionated wit of an Adbusters copy writer”
It’s a shame, because I think Greenpeace does good work, in really innovative ways.
