Following the High Court ruling on the climate change film An Inconvenient Truth – by Al Gore, the Met Office today welcomes the outcome.

The Met Office advised the Department for Children Schools and Families (DCSF) on the guidance that will now go with the film, and also helped all those involved in the case gain a complete understanding of what is known about climate change and where uncertainties remain.

Director Climate Science John Mitchell said: “The Met Office is pleased that the evidence for climate change had been accepted in a British court of law in line with the IPCC findings that warming our planet is unequivocal, and that it is very likely that most of this warming is caused by man-made greenhouse gases.

“We welcome the fact that  such an accessible film is being shown to schools so that young people will be informed on climate change and encouraged to engage with the issues that will affect their future.”

The Met Office continuously works closely with DCSF, providing educational aids on both weather and climate change.
