The Last Big La Nina

June 3, 2016

We’re coming out of a bear an El Nino, maybe biggest ever, and looks like we are sliding into a La Nina, according to many reports. La Nina is kind of El Nino’s nasty sibling, and has it’s own distinct fingerprint of extremes.  Last big one in 2011 was extreme enough that it carved it’s own dip in the satellite sea level record.

One of the only places you’ll find context like this on climate change is here.
Hope you’ll support it.

I interviewed NASA’s Josh Willis at the American Geophysical Union as the last La Nina was winding down – see if it might apply to coming months.

I don’t think we’re actually in a real La Nina yet, but this will do till  a real one comes along.

    “coming out of a bear an El Nino, maybe biggest ever” should be ” a bear OF an….”

    “La Nina is kind of El Nino’s nasty sibling” – kind of?? Is she or isn’t she?

    “has it’s own distinct” – its not “it’s”

    That’s my Grammar Nazi good deed for today.

    ….. and carved a nasty drought in California. SoCalif never really saw much in rains during El Nino, so this is bad news for the SWest. Will be interesting to see if “the blob” reappears.
