El Nino may save us from hurricanes caused by global warming in the near future, since An El Nino is an extreme warming of the ocean waters in the Pacific that affects weather conditions worldwide. NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association) reports that the current, weak El Nino will last into 2007. This has already helped to mitigate the effects of climate change and make the Atlantic hurricane season milder than expected. Just like the sun, El Nino may be giving us a reprieve. The question is, will we use this time productively?
The El Nino will probably cause temperatures to be warmer than normal this winter over western and central Canada and the western and northern United States. It will cause more rain in the Gulf Coast and Florida, and create drought in Ohio and the Pacific Northwest.
