El Niño 2023

Geneva 4 July 2023 (WMO World Meteorological Organization)
El Niño conditions have developed in the tropical Pacific for the first time in seven years, setting the stage for a likely surge in global temperatures and disruptive weather and climate patterns. 
El Niño is a natural climate pattern associated with warming ocean surface temps in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean.
But it takes place in the context of a climate changed by human activities.
