Prof Slingo, Head Boffin Met Office, What Degree Does She Have?
Prof Julia Slingo, Chief Scientist for the Met Office, is the one quoted. She has put many years into modelling the weather and climate, but what degree does she have?
I have checked her Personal Curriculum Vitae and her Met Office Profile and not a mention of having been to University. As far as I can judge she worked her way up through the Met Office, starting as a Scientific Officer.
I have always believed that a University Degree is overrated and a good technical education can be superior but I keep reading that those without Climatology Degrees shouldn't comment on Climate Change...
