La Niña: May happen when people are not ready

Wednesday, February 8, 2012
Water is one of the basic needs of the people; it can be considered as the most important.

Those who have water can live longer compare to those who only have food. But like most of the people in this world believed, “All gluts are dangerous”. Over food can make an individual unhealthy, overworked can cause stress and other serious complications may come up. If we put the word ‘over’ to other matter, it could somehow give us a ‘negative view’.

When it comes to environment, all excess are really perilous. Too much used of natural resources brings shortage to the production of people’s basic needs and the obvious root of the calamities happening today. Truly, when nature takes the revenge, nobody from the rest of the other creations including humans has the power to stop it.

La Niña occurs during…
La Niña or “the girl” in Spanish is the counterpart or opposite of El Niño which means “little boy’ and refers to “Christ Child”. La Niña is characterized by strong cooling of the ocean waters in the central Pacific Ocean. The cooling alters the formation of regional storms, atmospheric circulation and atmospheric water vapor around the world. Simply, La Niña gives above the normal rainfall.

According to forecast given by the Global Water Oscillations and Global Weather Cycles in their Natural Climate Pulse, La Niña conditions continues to January 2012, then begin weakening to February and March.
The figure shows the Central Tropical Pacific sea surface temperatures (blue solid line) since 2004 and the GWO Primary Forcing Mechanism (PFM) cycle (dashed red). The peaks in both the water temperatures indicate a La Niña, such as in 2008 and 2010-2011.

Notice the sharp decline in the PFM cycle beginning in March 2010. As forecast by GWO in February 2010, the Central Tropical South Pacific ocean waters responded to the diminishing PFM with cooling of the ocean from May through July. A strong La Niña occurred in 2010 through March 2011. Ocean temperature rose in April through May 2011 in conjunction with the rise in the dotted PFM cycle. GWO then forecast SSTs to lower with the neutral conditions again entering La Niña conditions from August into December. As indicated by the dashed red PFM line, temperatures fell in August in response to the PFM.

What is exactly happening?
The information showed on when La Niña is commonly occurring but as we have noticed, the weather condition is not usual, we have experienced beyond our expectations. The month of December did not give the Philippines the cold that it’s should typically provide while other places went through abnormal cooling conditions. Proofs were exactly happened all over the world.
1.)    Below-normal temperatures during December-February over southeastern Africa, Japan, southeastern Alaska and western/central Canada, and southeastern Brazil;
2.)    Cooler than normal conditions during June-August across India and southeastern Asia, along the west coast of South America, across the Gulf of Guinea region, and across northern South America and portions of central America; and
3.)    Warmer than normal conditions during December-February along the Gulf coast of the United States.

Positive vs Negative
The world will continue to rotate. Everything will still happen but the thing is, it will not happen in the usual way - rain during summer and warm weather in rainy seasons. This abnormality can definitely give more negative impact in all aspects of life: in health, education, agriculture, industry, etc., but it can also give positive thoughts on how people will view the reality of life: learn to be ready! Today, time can’t give a specific answer on when a La Niña will actually happen. Thus, to be prepared is the best way people can do.

Humans made the problem. Then, who holds the solution? It’s clearly illustrated in the hands of every man and woman created in this world.
