La Nina - What 'a girl' - Worldwide Extreme Weather Disasters!

La Nina - the girl - is apparently to blame for the present global weather events in Australia, as far as Africa and the snow in US.  La Niña is a period of cooler than average sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean supposed to be part of natural climate variability. Because the Pacific is so large any change can effect weather in far off countries.

The devastating floods in Pakistan in 2010, flooding in Africa and now Cyclone Yasi in Queensland - one of the strongest to hit us ever - are all part of this!

The scientists say it will continue for a good while yet!  So stay tuned for weather warnings!
