Is El Nino good for the arctic?

    El Nino mainly has its effects in the Pacific and across the Southern portion of the US and into Peru.  It typically causes flooding in these areas and a change in the temperature.  So the effects of El Nino it self are not on the artic, but EL Nino results from a warmiong of the Pacific waters, which is not great for the artci, because warmer temperatures lead to more ice melt and less arctic.  There is also a drought in Australia which leads to brush fires, which puts more harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, and if you believe this leads to global warming/cliamte change then it also has a negative effect on the Arctic.
