Julia Slingo Gets Nominated

Last winter, Professor Slingo astutely observed that the record cold and snow was confined to western Europe – upon her return from record cold Cancun.

The UK may be cold, but it’s still a warm world, says Met Office chief

Professor Slingo, who is in charge of Britain’s biggest research team investigating climate change, insisted that global warming was a reality despite the bitterly cold temperatures and heavy snowfalls that have brought much of the country to a standstill.

“This is not a global event; it is very much confined to the UK and Western Europe and if you look over at Greenland, for example, you see that it’s exceptionally warm there,” she said.

    I can’t say I blame her for not noticing it was cold in the Americas. After all, she did not have any noogeys to leave in cancun.

    Well, this is consistent with the awarding of prizes to the most incompetent.

    Gore…..what a scientist!!!
    Obama……. what a peacenik!!!! (Arafat being another famous peacenik)
    The whole IPCC for parroting Green Peace!!! Well, it appears Green Peace was parroting Green Peace using the pseudonym IPCC
    Now, Slingo!! Apparently, while public servants usually avoid reality, for females anyway, she’s one of the best!!!

    Oh sure, there’s plenty more examples, Merkel for instance, she’d be a close second, but then what of our reality avoiding female public servants in the U.S.?

    Yes Ehrlich is full of awards as well. There is a pattern.

  4. omnologos says:

    oh my

    she’s been shortlisted for asininely shutting down Europe’s airspace. Without evidence. of course

    Good grief, where would the world be without lefties taking turns giving each other awards?

    Heck, Dan Rather was supposed to be an award winning journalist.

  6. Old Goat says:

    She should be abominated, rather than nominated.
    It would appear that a prerequisite to get any sort of undeserved award these days, is to be a complete and utter numpty.

    She should slingo her hook, the Met Office is now an international joke, and totally unfit for purpose. Get rid, save us a fortune and employ someone sensible instead. I nominate a Bastardi/Corbyn partnership – you couldn’t go far wrong with that. But Slingo? You’re having a laugh…

    What a stellar example of what women can accomplish.

    SARC!

  8. Paul H says:

    I posted a comment at the Met Office site, but it is still under moderation.

    I don’t know why because I did not use any of the words “useless” “lying” ” Slingo” or “woman”.

    Well I did mention “Slingo”, but I could not avoid that.

    Apparently in Slingo’s world, North America and Asia don’t exist. Nor does Australia. Just goes to show that it pays to go with the flow.
