Global warming may drive more active La Nina pattern

There are 7 comments on the Summit County Voice story from Jul 1, 2013, titled Global warming may drive more active La Nina pattern. In it, Summit County Voice reports that:

Climate scientists have long suspected that global warming has an influence on the Pacific Ocean El Nino- La Nina cycle , but instrumental records tracking the shift between above- and below average sea surface temperatures don't go back far enough to provide context for any recent changes in the pattern.

On the other hand, noticeable changes from ENSO were pretty hard to find prior to AGW. Since then, strong ENSO cylces have become more frequent with consequent major changes to year to year climate.

Now we have confirmation, or at least strong indications that warmer waters drive a stronger cycle in the Pacific. Get used to it folks. Lack of action on AGW is going to produce a lot of changes and you are NOT going to like most of them.

I have posting about this for years. The high solar activity of the last half of the 20th century has enhanced the frequency and intensity of the ENSO.

When solar energy is high and the PDO and the ENSO are in positive mode, El Ninos are enhanced and La Ninas are mitigated.

Now that our solar energy is in the tank and the PDO and ENSO are in negative phase, La Nina rules.

La Nina will have center stage for the next three decades.

The PDO is negative and is expected to stay that way for another 25 years.

Solar energy is very low and expected to stay low until cycle 27. We are currently in cycle 24.

If we want to do something about climate change, we'd better correctly predict just what type of change we are likely to experience.

Yes. Lack of support never dissuades the denialists and the clueless.

I find it humorous how the warmenistas continue to pull correlation/causality theses (feces?) out their collective butts. Of course the end results - AKA policies - of these Shamans won't be so funny. Even our glorious Dear Leader has announced his intentions by saying the people of Africa shouldn't be allowed to enter the modern world due to the claims of goverment funded shills, er scientists. Well, it's really never humorous when hype rules over logic and fact.

Yes... resting. Just like the faux warming that the big government shills have predicted for 3 decades.
