"Human-caused greenhouse gas emissions mean strong El Niño and La Niña events
are occurring more often, according to our new research, which provides
important new evidence of the human fingerprint on Earth’s climate.
For more than 30 years, climate researchers have puzzled over the link between
human-caused climate change and El Niño and La Niña events. We set out to
bridge this knowledge gap.
Climate scientists have long observed a correlation between climate change
impacts on our oceans and atmosphere, and the increase in greenhouse gas
emissions from human activity.
Our research examined when this activity may have started to make El Niño and
La Niña events more extreme. Our deep analysis found a relationship between
human-caused greenhouse gas activity and changes to El Niño and La Niña.
Our findings were five years in the making. They help us understand how El Niño
and La Niña will change as the world warms in the future."
