Why A Super El Nino Is Very Unlikely

There is a lot of cold water circulating from Alaska down the west coast of Canada,  the US and Mexico. The cold water is mixing with equatorial waters and keeping the temperature down.

Hansen and Appell are hoping for a very big El Nino (to bring 2012 temperatures closer to Hansen’s zero emissions scenario C) but pre-school level science explains to us why that isn’t likely to happen.

    Even if, in the unlikely event, that, there is a ‘super’ El Nino, the PDO index trend is strongly ‘heading south’ and down – we are in a cooling phase, not even Hansen’s creative graphic arts skills – can do anything about it and heaven knows: he has tried.

    Keep in mind that their “wish” for a super nino simply verifies that the oceans, not co2, have control,

    The NE-SW ridge of cold water from the UK to The North Coast of Australia is quite interesting. Is it propagating? What is its cause?

    Appell is having a wet dream over at his site. His dream is that a big El Nino will crush CAGW skepticism once and for all.

    did you notice that the “high” SST is caused by Lake Michigan and the Caspian Sea?
    Funny how all the Oceans look cool but they pick a temperature from a fresh water and a land locked sea to show how “hot” things are?
    Must be some goberment grants on the line!
