The climate is fundamentally important for life on earth, but it’s changing rapidly. The effects could have a profound impact on our day-to-day lives and those of future generations.
Over the last 30 years climate change has come under increasing scrutiny from the world’s scientific community, becoming the sole focus for 1000s of scientists worldwide, including many based at the Met Office.
Despite this improved scientific understanding, almost daily we all hear some extreme views on the severe impacts of climate change, and others arguing that climate change isn’t happening at all.
We think people deserve a clearer understanding of what’s going on with their climate by looking at what climate science and the scientific evidence is telling us.
The My Climate and Me team are not Climate Scientists, but we’ve got direct access to over 150 Climate Scientists here at the Met Office, many of whom are world leaders in their fields. Our role is to make the latest climate science and scientific understanding more accessible to you.
We’re here to take your questions and concerns about climate change straight to the scientists themselves, and get you some answers.
If you’ve got a climate question, we’d love to hear it. Ask a question now.
