HUFFPUFF – APRIL 2013
The chief scientist at the Met Office has called an urgent meeting to discuss the effects of climate change, saying the melting of the arctic may be causing the UK’s recent spate of perishing weather.
After a winter in which temperatures dropped as low as −15.6C, Dr Julia Slingo told ITV News global warming may be responsible for the extreme weather, saying she would be convening with top scientists to try and understand how the arctic melt was affecting the UK.
She told the broadcaster: "If this is how climate change could manifest itself, then we need to understand that as a matter of urgency
"We are beginning to think that our climate is being disrupted by the warming of the arctic that we’ve observed very dramatically since 2007.
"It definitely seems like the warming of the arctic is "loading the dice" over cold dry winters."
