Israeli delegation heads to Indonesia climate parley

A delegation comprised of officials from various government ministries as well as environmental NGOs will head to Bali, Indonesia on Friday for the UN Climate Change Conference. The conference runs from December 3 to 14. Environmental Protection Minister Gideon Ezra decided last week not to attend because it would be too expensive to protect him there. However, two other officials from his ministry will be attending. One part of the delegation, representing the Jewish National Fund, will present its successes with desert forestation.
