How El Niño affects everything from hurricanes to the price of coffee - Timeline

How El Niño affects everything from hurricanes to the price of coffee - Timeline | climate change | Scoop.it
Noticed any crazy weather lately? You may be feeling the return of El Niño. Scientists announced on July 21 that one of the most potent influences on global weather patterns has set an all-time record for warmth in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.A robust El Niño spells a muted hurricane season for the Eastern US, and much-needed rains for the West, which has been parched for years. But other parts of the world are likely to face drought, wildfires and crop failures. As a climate phenomenon, El Niño has been around for millennia. But it’s only in the last century that we have come to understand how the wild weather plays a role in everything from flu pandemics to the price of coffee.
