Climate Change and El Nino
Federal researchers have published work concluding that a particular variant of the periodic El Niño warmups of the tropical Pacific Ocean is becoming more frequent and stronger. The pattern appears to fit what is expected from human-driven warming of the global climate, said the researchers . . .
The 2009-2010 El Nino event was the strongest on record. The researchers also said that the trend did not fit with the record of natural variability in the Pacific.
