Global Warming Will Increase Intensity Of Weather-Altering El Nino Cycle

Global Warming Will Increase Intensity Of Weather-Altering El Nino Cycle says a new study, reports Matt McGrath at the BBC. Although El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) occurs in the Pacific Ocean it plays an important part in the world’s climate, driving dry and wet weather seasons. The study, published in the reputable, major, peer-reviewed science journal Nature,  indicates that under continued global warming, one should expect even more extreme droughts and floods from El Nino. This is just one of the many mechanisms in which global warming is creating ever more extreme climate conditions. The science is simply filling in the details of  what, it is now 95% certain, are the effects of global warming on our planet.

 

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2 years!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
