Kerry et al,
Here's some text on ice sheets and SLR.
IPCC didn't have anything to review about rapidly discharging glaciers from
Greenland and the Antarctic in 2006.
Although there are papers being presented in Copenhagen, none of
these have been published yet.
Have added in bits about the Eemian and Arctic sea-ice reductions.

Dear Colleagues,
As always things change at the last minute. We have just been advised that
the SOS will not want to be briefed on mitigation but only on adaptation. In
particular the following topice need to be covered:
Broads and National Park response;
Coastal Change;
Other greeenhouse gases (not just CO2) from landfill,farming and land
management practices;
Food security;
Changed cropping practices (eg food or energy).
So Phil can we say something about ice sheets and SLR? (Andy Watson is not
able to come ). Chris/Simon can we cover agric/landfill? Tim I still think
'tipping points' should be covered but could you include bio char? I will
deal with Nat Parks and something on coastal change.
Let me know what you think.

Dear Colleagues,
The visit is still on and the timing is now 1pm to 1.45pm but this includes
the opening of the building. We have to be there just before 1pm, say 12.45.
Parking is very difficult but I intend to drive there leaving UEA at 12.15
approx. If you want a lift let me know.
Given the very short time available I thought we should all produce a brief
(one page or so ) summary of our main message. If you let me have them this
week I will include them all in a folder which will also have the general
ENV blurb in it Cheers, Kerry.

Dear Colleagues,
The Sec of State for the Environment Hilary Benn is planning to visit
Norwich on March 16th. He will be opening the new Broads Authority/Natural
England and Env Agency Building on the Jarrold's site. I have been given the
opportunity to brief him over a working lunch on Climate change science and
policy. I will be telling him about a joint climate adaptation panel that I
chair for the three agencies and local authorities as well as my own reseach
on the RED mechanism and coastal zone policy. Would you be prepared to come
along and give him some 'headline' findings/issues based on your research? I
anticipate that we will get about 5mins each plus questions ( the usual
Ministerial briefing format).
If you are able to participate I need a very rapid response in order to get
the names processed through the inevitable offical processes the accompany
such visits. We could then perhaps have a brief chat before the event to get
the running order and our overall message into shape.
Let me know what you all think asap.
