London, Aug 28 (ANI): In what seems to be a technological drawback, it has emerged that a super-computer designed to predict climate change causes massive pollution.

The Department of Communities and Local Government in Britain has exposed that the Met Office's HQ is responsible for emitting more than 12,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.

And apparently, 75 per cent of the pollution is caused by the computer, which is presumably the second most powerful system in Britain, reports The Sun.

However, Met Office spokesman Barry Grommett has said that the computer is vital to help forecast weather and environmental change and its predictions helps to reduce global carbon emissions

The Met Office was ranked 103rd among 28,259 public buildings which emits dangerous gases.

Manchester University's Oxford Road campus ranked top in the list. (ANI)
