Weather Supercomputer Predicts Climate Change, But Ironically It's One of Britain's Worst Polluters
The machine pictured above was hailed as the 'future of weather prediction' with the ability to produce more accurate forecasts and produce climate change modelling. However, the Met Office has now been named as one of the worst buildings in Britain for pollution - responsible for more than 12,000 tons of carbon dioxide a year. It says 75% of its carbon footprint is produced by the super computer, meaning the machine is officially one of the country's least green machines. Green campaigners say it is "ironic" that a computer designed to help stave-off climate change is responsible for such high levels of pollution.
