What is an El Nino protective shield?



  1. 0 Votes

    When El Nino, a large warm-water current, occurs east of the Americas, it can shield Central America and the Caribbean from the worst of the hurricane season by increasing wind sheer in the area, hampering the formation of hurricanes. However, some researchers think that global warming is increasing the Central Pacific El Nino, which is seperate from the one near the Americas, and this could lessen its effect, making more hurricanes with the ability to cause more destruction.
