    xkcd looks at the future in IAUs "Ice Age Units". If we are approximately 4.5C on average warmer than the last Ice Age, then what will another 4.5C look like?

    Suppose they gave an El Nino party and none turned up?

    This year's predicted El Nino may be fizzling out.

    A British team predict a September ice minimum of 5.4million km^2, much the same as last year.

    El Nino is just late apparently. Hmm.


    Sorry, El Niņo watchers, but the climate phenomenon we’ve all been waiting for still hasn’t officially arrived. But forecasters still expect it to emerge this summer, and if it does, it is expected to affect weather around the world.
