    Vice-President Dr. Ali Mohammed Shein has said that climate change is a global concern that needs collective efforts to address it.
    Shein made the remarks last Sunday in Dar es Salaam before flying off to Copenhagen, Denmark, to attend the world conference on climate change.
    Dr. Shein said climate change was a global concern that needed political leaders to sit down and find the best way of solving the problem.
    “It is our hope that our fellows in the developed countries will understand that they emit a lot of carbon in the atmosphere, hence they are responsible to find the solution,” he said.
    He added that developing countries like Tanzania were producing less carbon in the atmosphere but were affected a lot by the impact of climate change.
    “Our hope is to reach a consensus with the developed countries on how to address the challenge ahead,” he stressed.
    According to Dr. Shein, Tanzania was attending the conference as a member of the African Union (AU) and the Commonwealth, which had one voice on climate change issues reached recently in Trinidad and Tobago.


    I think that the climate change problem is very dangerous and may wipe out those of us who are the inhabitants of the so called "third world countries". The Climate Change forum is a good opportunity of our countries to have some leverage, a bargaining chip in the world order ...

    Just curious. What is the size of his delegation? As previously proudly promissed? I mean 90+?

    If so that is money lost because what he is saying is almost every leaders motto on climate change!
