El Niño


Last quote about El Niño

Scott Denning
If future climate is more like this recent El Niño, the trouble is the Earth may actually lose some of the carbon removal services we get from these tropical forests, and then CO2 will increase even faster in the atmosphere.feedback

Accurate predictions of the most recent El Niño saved untold lives. Our greatly improved ability to forecast El Niño and La Niña events contributes to the public good and is essential for the agricultural and food security sectors, for management of water resources and public health, as well as for disaster risk reduction.feedback

Maxx Dilley - World Meteorological Organization

Memories are still fresh of the powerful 2015-2016 El Niño which was associated with droughts, flooding and coral bleaching in different parts of the world and which, combined with long-term climate change, led to the increase of global temperatures to new record highs in both 2015 and 2016.feedback

Tim Stockdale

Normally we would expect a longer interval before another warming. But, having said that, El Niño variability is really rather irregular.feedback

Mike Halpert

If you just look at the current state of the ocean and the atmosphere, it doesn't really look like what we typically expect to see as we head into El Niño. There's been a little bit of head scratching. But history would tell us we wouldn't see two strong events in three years.feedback

Terry Hughes

The bleaching is caused by record-breaking temperatures driven by global warming. This year, 2017, we are seeing mass bleaching, even without the assistance of El Niño conditions. Clearly the reef is struggling with multiple impacts. Without a doubt the most pressing of these is global warming. As temperatures continue to rise the corals will experience more and more of these events: 1°C of warming so far has already caused four events in the past 19 years. Ultimately, we need to cut carbon emissions, and the window to do so is rapidly closing.feedback

David Carlson - World Meteorological Organization

Even without a strong El Niño in 2017, we are seeing other remarkable changes across the planet that are challenging the limits of our understanding of the climate system. We are now in truly uncharted territory.feedback

Kim Cobb

There will now be years where it doesn't take an El Niño event to reach the bleaching threshold. This is going to be statistically more likely in a warming world.feedback

Kim Cobb

We had been waiting for the big one. And boy… did it happen. It really rolled out at an unprecedented magnitude. This particular El Niño event had its maximum temperature loading almost in a bulls-eye almost around Kirimati Island.feedback

Petteri Taalas - World Meteorological Organisation

The year 2015 ushered in a new era of optimism and climate action with the Paris climate change agreement. But it will also make history as marking a new era of climate change reality with record high greenhouse gas concentrations. The El Niño event has disappeared. Climate change has not.feedback

Mary Robinson

We have to do it differently next time - we cannot have an El Niño aggravated by climate (change) undermine development hugely, drastically. We will never achieve the Sustainable Development Goals unless we address this.feedback

Roger Bonifacio - World Food Programme

Its effects however will be felt all the way to early 2017 and its effects have been widespread geographically. El Niño has caused impacts on the growing seasons of Central America – Haiti. . Ethiopia where it registered one of the driest seasons in the last 50 years all the way to Indonesia and Papua New Guinea which again has suffered one of the major droughts on record.feedback

Krishna Krishnamurthy - World Food Programme

El Niño is peaking at the moment, and we expect the impacts to come up after the peak. Rivers are completely dry in several parts of the country. some hard-hit areas were deceptively green.feedback

David Murillo

On December 30, the California Department of Water Resources held their first manual snow survey of the year and found the water content to be 16.3 inches, or 136 percent of the January 1 average. With this promising news and El Niño storms beginning to materialize, we are feeling encouraged. However, storage in our reservoirs remains low, and we must be prudent as we develop initial operation plans and allocations for CVP water contractors.feedback
