The El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) phenomenon is a naturally occurring fluctuation centred in the tropical Pacific which has impacts on ecosystems, agriculture, freshwater supplies, hurricanes and other severe weather, and the lives of millions of people around the world. Here we review recent progress on understanding the impact of increasing greenhouse gases on ENSO and the tropical Pacific more generally. Under transient global warming, the mean climate of the Pacific is likely to… CONTINUE READING
