It takes a village to raise a website. Southeast Green would not be able to create such a wealth of content by ourselves. We have many contributors but we do have some faithful regular contributors. We thought our readers should meet them.

Jim Warren, NC WARNJim Warren - NC WARN

Jim Warren is a native of Graham, North Carolina, and graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill in 1978 with a degree in Business Administration with Accounting.

He has been active in public interest issues for more than 25 years, and in 1993 became executive director of NC WARN, a Durham-based nonprofit environmental organization.

During his tenure, the science-based advocacy group has assisted communities in successful grassroots struggles involving toxic and radioactive waste facilities. Since the mid-1990s, NC WARN has been a watchdog of nuclear power plants, and has forced nuclear plants including Shearon Harris to reduce various safety and security risks.

While remaining a prominent nuclear watchdog, NC WARN’s top focus this decade has been the increasingly urgent need to reduce greenhouse gases.  The group is helping lead the transition from coal-fired power to a clean-energy economy in North Carolina.

Jim has authored and edited numerous reports, opinion pieces and other papers on energy, climate change, social justice and corporate influence.
