ENVIRONMENT and Sustainable Development Minister John Griffiths will be attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Doha, Qatar tomorrow.

He will be raising the profile of Wales's contribution to addressing climate change by highlighting Wales' strategic approach and progress.

He also aims to enhance Welsh Government links with networks, regional and sub-national government and UN agencies. Mr Griffiths said: "It's a packed programme and I will be looking for opportunities to identify new economic and social opportunities for Wales.

"There will be a number of opportunities for me to discuss our proposals to build on and strengthen the framework for sustainable development in Wales. I will also be promoting the actions we are taking through our Wales for Africa programme."

    siarad2 there is very little we can do to stop the waters from rising. latest news from Doha Sea levels are rising 60 per cent faster than the United Nations originally predicted, according to a new study, putting small island states and coastal cities at risk. It found that sea levels have been rising by 3.2mm per year for the last 30 years, rather than the 2mm previously calculated. If the trend continues then sea levels could be rising by 9mm per year within a century. The total rise by 2100 could be 1.2m.

    Sadly i fear just another complete waste of time. It's now looking more likely that the rise in temp will be closer to 3 or 4 deg C by the end of this century with all the consequences that go with it
