THE WEATHER gods seem to be making a statement on the issue of climate change, with the east coast gripped by rainy and unusually cold weather for much of this week.
This comes as Durban puts the finishing touches to preparations for the 17th Conference of the Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP17) starting next week.
More than 20 000 delegates – government, business and UN leaders, and environment activists, celebrities and media – are expected to descend on the city.
