Last March, the Met’s “Chief Scientist”, Julia Slingo, told the Parliamentary Environmental Committee ,

decreasing amounts of ice in the far north was contributing to colder winters in the UK and northern Europe as well as to drought. “

 

Apparently when she said drought, she meant floods.

Meanwhile, in other news last year, the Met Office announced that a “J Slingo” had been paid a bonus of between £25000 and £30000, on top of her basic salary of £135000.

 

[Surely some mistake – ED?]
