EU fishing directors enjoy light workload at global warming conference.

A TWO-day meeting in Hamburg of European Union (EU) fisheries directors on the impact of global warming on fish stocks involved just over four hours of conferring, amidst a stay in a luxury hotel, a "sailing and feasting" cruise of the city harbour and a tour of an Airbus factory. Directors then lunched at their billet, the Steigenberger Hotel, which markets itself as "Hanseatic and cosmopolitan", boasting that "behind [its] elegant red-brick facade, luxury and total relaxation awaits." Their global warming discussions took up one four-and-half-hour afternoon, punctuated by a scheduled coffee break. The trip was organised by the EU's current German presidency.
