Climate Change: Ask the Met Office Experts

The Met Office has teamed up with the Open Air Laboratories (OPAL) Project ( by offering members of the public the chance to have their questions about weather and climate change answered by scientists.

Anyone who is confused or curious about climate change can send their questions via the OPAL website. Scientists from the Met Office will publish answers to as many of them as possible online, with particular emphasis on popular or trending topics.

Mark McCarthy, Climate Scientist at the Met Office said, “Weather and climate are two of the most talked about topics today. We want to help everyone understand the important issues we face, as well as answering any questions they may have.

“No question is too daft or simplistic. We want people to tell us what confuses them about climate change and we will try to widen their understanding of this difficult topic.”
