The Met Office is to be the lead science advisor for Climate Week, which runs from 21st to 27th March 2011.
The role of the Met Office as lead science advisor is to explain some of the key science issues around climate change. Professor Julia Slingo, Met Office Chief Scientist, said: “Whenever we talk about climate change it’s important we do so with a proper understanding of the science. That’s why I’m very pleased for the Met Office to be associated with Climate Week. We hope our science will help people understand what our climate is and how it works.”
Kevin Steele, founder of Climate Week, said: “The Met Office is a household name known and trusted by millions of people across Britain, as well as being one of the country’s leading scientific organisations. It is tremendous to have it contributing its scientific expertise to the Climate Week campaign”.
The climate section of the Met Office website provides information and resources to help people understand more about our climate, climate science and climate change.
