Fresh warning issued to taxpayers

After Britain’s record-cold December of 2010 that the Met Office failed to predict, Julia Slingo, chief scientist at the UK Meteorological Office, was asked how the Met Office could improve its forecasts. She replied: “Access to supercomputers . The science is well ahead of our ability to implement it.

It’s quite clear that if we could run our models at a higher resolution we could do a much better job— tomorrow— in terms of our seasonal and decadal predictions. It’s so frustrating.

We keep saying we need four times the computing power. We’re talking just 10 or 20 million a year— dollars or pounds— which is tiny compared to the damage done by disasters. Yet it’s a difficult argument to win.” source
