By Oct 1 I might have more news from the Met Office. They are wanting to do as little as
possible as they have just lost all the MoD money for climate science, which was £4M per
year. [Phil Jones]
The UK’s Met Office has had its funding for climate research slashed by a quarter, following withdrawal of financial support by the government’s Ministry of Defence (MoD).
The loss of £4.3 million (US$7.0 million) in funding from the MoD will affect the Met Office Hadley Centre for Climate Change in Exeter, the world-class climate modelling institute whose researchers made key contributions to the last assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2007.
