@No Tricks Zone: The 2017 ‘Global Warming Reality Check’: Experts Now Foreca­sting La Niña Condit­ions!

Schneefan at wobleibtd­ieerderwa­ermung.de here does a good job summar­izing weather and climate trends. His latest focuses on the ENSO, which is a powerful Pacific driver of global weather. Earlier this year a number of experts projected that another El Niño would appear later this year, and thus keep global temper­atures elevated and thus end the
