Nino and La Nina
El Nino is the mysterious change of the climate. In this case the cold water near South-America becomes warm and the warm mater near Australia and Indonesia gets cold. The changes in the currents of the Pacific Ocean cause devastation because the towns and cities (for example in California, Peru, Chile) which are dry almost all the time are endangered by floods, landslides and storms. It means that if the sea-water gets warmer near the coasts, there will be heavy rainfalls. La Nina (El Nino’s “little sister”) has got the opposite effect. The sea-water near the coast of South-East Asia becomes warmer but it gets colder in America and therefore there are rainfalls and floods.
Interests: In 1997 there was an enormous rainfall near the coasts of the Pacific Ocean. It was the most tremendous catastrophe in the climate in the 20th century. It was called El Nino. It killed a lot of people and caused huge financial loss. The reason is not known surely but in a few years’ time enormous quantity of water accumulates near the coasts of South-America and it’s the sign of the coming El Nino. The “Child” (Christ) was named by fishermen in Peru because they suppose that this phenomenon reaches their coast at about Christmas.
