Popular Science News | La Niña Caused Global Cooling

Popular Science News – La Niña is a current in the ocean that affects weather. Well, in 2011 there were two of these running at the same time. One in the Pacific Ocean area and one in the Atlantic and these together resulted in global cooling. The effects included droughts and increased tropical cyclones.

Despite this, warm weather trends are increasing, greenhouse gas levels are climbing and the ice is melting. The expectation is that extreme weather is to become more common in the future. People living in the UK will agree with this prediction, July is proving to be miserable and the only hope is that the school holidays there will not be another disappointing August with families wishing they had taken foreign holidays instead of sampling the damp and gloomy delights of Broadstairs and Blackpool.
