Historical dates of El Niño:
Very Strong: 1997-1998
Contrary to popular belief, global warming did not cause El Nino. It is a natural climate change that occurs as semi-regular intervals.
El Nino is Spanish for Christ Child, and it was named this because El Nino usually begins to appear around the Christmas season.
When El Nino occurs, there is a lot of disruption of sea life, especially in coastal regions. This often has negative effects for the livelihood of many fishermen.
