Met Office: Arctic sea-ice loss linked to colder, drier UK winters–Slingo March 2012
By Paul Homewood
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.
