With regards Cohens comment:
As for instigating an El Nino, its been developing since last year and is closely monitored by meteorologists all other the world (including the Australians, Chinese and Russians). Do you really think they would not notice if the US were somehow delibreately causing it? Even if they had the power to do so .... ?
Their strength can vary considerably between cycles. One of the strongest in recent decades was the El Niño that developed the winter of 1997-98. "Everyone associates the word El Niño with that event, but that was a rare, once-in-a-century event," notes L'Heureux.
The strongest El Nino ever recorded occurred in 1997-98. It led to heavy rains across the southern U.S., landslides in Peru, wildfires in Indonesia, and the cratering of the anchovy fishery in the eastern Pacific. These and other impacts were responsible an estimated $35-45 billion in damage and 23,000 deaths worldwide.
Another “super” El Nino in 1982-83 wreak similar havoc globally.
In a study published on Sunday in Nature Climate Change, researchers show that climate change could double the frequency of super El Nino events.
