World Meteorological Organization: La Niña will continue until the end of the year
The agency warned that a “triple” La Niña does not mean global warming is easing.
“La Niña for three years in a row is very rare. Its cooling effect has temporarily slowed the rise in global temperatures, but it will not stop or reverse the long-term warming trend,” said WMO Secretary-General Petri Taalas express.
It is understood that La Niña usually leads to more Atlantic hurricanes, less rainfall in the western United States and more wildfires, and the central United States will suffer agricultural losses. Research shows that for the US, La Niña will cost more than El Niño.
Scientists say the burning of coal, oil and natural gas is causing climate change.
