About 90 years or so. Met Office discovers NAO. Hold the presses.
They might even get round to the PDO and AMO in another 10 years.
"Quid pro quo, paid-for software would deliver £1.6bn in additional economic value to Blighty's fragile economy, "
So instead of spending £1.6 bill on other things it is spent on paid-for software. I make -1.6 +1.6 = 0.

"The scientists estimated the figures by running a model based on a new cat murder algorithm. The research authors described themselves as stunned by the scale of the bloodshed they discovered."

Reminds me of a spoof storage device from the early 70s that was going to replace disks – spherical storage. Complete with its own set of hardware instructions. I can only remember a few, no balls, twirl balls, and of course, all balls
".. 34% of the world's biomass " A widely acccepted figure is that +70% of the biomass on earth is bacterial. (citations if I can find time) Add the claimed USA blubbermass to that and it doesn't leave much for any other fauna, flora, fishes, fungi, .....

Aah! CP/67. I remember it well from my days at Big Blue. Another of those not-quite-official products that kicked the arse of the mainstream offerings. And so became the grudgingly (to the suits) acceptable VM/370.
