There’s a bit more to “student” Eleni Andreadis

Participation of “student” Eleni Andreadis has raised a few questions among the many for 28Gate. Her LinkedIn page is a bit short on CV:

It seems Ms Andreadis was more qualified to attend than at first hypothesised. The trouble of having BBC News sponsor a Masters student to work at CMEP to lobby the BBC, it’ll be for another day to understand.

No prize to guess the name of the “feature-length climate change documentary for international cinematic release” worked on in 2007. Who knows what happened at the end of that year though, that made Eleni change her life’s focus.

Green TV doesn’t show anything when her family name is used.
