What About the Impact of Global Warming (a/k/a Climate Control) on El Nino?

July 19, 2015 --

A Wall Street Journal story, July 6 on the impact of El Nino on commodity prices, reports: "El Nino occurs when winds in the equatorial Pacific slow down or reverse direction." As a result, water gets warmed "over a vast area, which in turn can upend weather patterns around the world; ... typically reduc[ing] rainfall in Autralia and across parts of southeast and southern Asia." This might also cause "wetter weather...in South America [that] could boost crops of soybeans, corn and sugar there."

There seems to be something very suspicious about this explanation for El Nino. Where is the human element in this weather phenomenon? LPR looks forward to a New York Times statement -- or advisory from the White House -- how the abuse of fossil fuels by humans sets in motion the equatorial winds that spawn El Nino.

And how long for Washington to reveal that abrupt weather changes are caused by the Internet -- all those bits of data wrapping the planet in a cyber-cocoon?
