El Nino has caused global devastation most noticeably since 1982-83. Thousands of lives have been lost due to the abnormal weather patterns all throughout the world. Devastation does not occur solely in one region but rather affects the entire world. Billions of dollars and thousands of lives have been lost over the course of these strange weather patterns and no end is in sight. Currents and weather patterns will all be analyzed while looking into the worldly affects of El Nino. El Nino is an ocean current that brings unusually warm water to the west coast of South America (Thompson, 499). The warm water currents occur randomly usually every 4 to 7 years and last for about one year before returning to normal. El Nino has been reported to have affected over 75% of the Earth (Thompson, 499). El Nino causes not simply rainfall but leads to devastating flooding and droughts that cause massive brushfires in Australia. These weather patterns are very important in how many people across the globe lead their lives. El Nino’s affects are not only seen in South America and across the Pacific; its affects reach out to as much as 75% of the Earth.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
