FROM ANDREW PAGE IN THE RADIO SNOWY MOUNTAINS NEWSROOM:

A recently retired scientist from the CSIRO is going to be in Cooma this Saturday to explain the lull in Global Warming.

Research Scientist DR Brad Sherman says the oceans, which absorb about 90 per cent of radiation reaching Earth, have actually continued to warm during recent years when land temperatures appeared not to rise very much.

Individuals from both sides of the debate are invited, it's on at the Uniting Church hall, Cooma from 3pm tomorrow.

Afternoon tea will be provided.

FROM ANDREW PAGE IN THE RADIO SNOWY MOUNTAINS NEWSROOM:

The Electrical Trades Union of Australia has expressed concerns in relation to changes that the Abbott Government is making to the building industry codes.

The union holds grave concerns for future apprenticeships in the Snowy Mountains & Monaro, as employers and and employees would be prevented from negotiating on a range of polices, including minimum apprentice numbers.

The ETU says this would lead to skill shortages.

ETU National Secretary Allen Hicks says, the building and constriction industry code, which will be voted on by the senate, along with legislation to reintroduce the Howard governement's Australian Building and Construction Commission was an ideological attack on collective bargaining rights.
