The La Nina climate event, widely seen as a factor causing floods in Australia that have killed at least 19 people, is a natural cooling of the Pacific that mirrors El Nino. Nasty. Next year comes a predicted El Nino, which is a warming of Pacific Ocean and with it the opportunity to sell your snow tires and buy a boat to prepare for the floods. Next year is predicted by some to post the warmest year-round temperatures in recorded history. But that only goes back about 200 years.
It will also rekindle the rhetoric surrounding climate change. I suspect that will continue until we all burn up for freeze to death.
