La Nina or no?

Why does it matter? If she arrives early, say mid- to late-summer, we could have another dry scorcher. Then, as she strengthens in the fall into the winter, a warmer and drier winter. Or not.

The LCRA’s Bob Rose is on board for her early arrival, along with NOAA and Accuweather’s Joe Bastardi. But Anthony Watts at WUWT has a neat nay-saying article we might cross our fingers on. Because, among other things, La Nina would bring a stronger hurricane season. Which, this year, could mean pushing much more of that Gulf crude oil much farther ashore into Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Maybe even turn it the other way and push some of it into Texas.

  1. La Nina, El Nino, clouds and the sun are at best minor factors in climate.

    Geez, it’s like you never saw the two best documentaries not about how evil Bush is: An Inconvenient Truth and The Day After Tomorrow.

    Nope. I missed them. I was busy reading about meteorology, etc. Willful ignorance, I suppose.
