Episode 41 – “The Nino (Pumpkin Spice Latte Season)”

This week we talk about El Nino, what it is, how it works, and what it means for this winter. We also discuss pumpkin carving injuries on this week’s Fun Paper Friday!

ENSO

El Nino

Consequences

  • Triple Hurricane Picture
  • Hurricane Patricia
  • Exacerbating an already bad drought in the Pacific NW.
  • Helping to alleviate drought in the SW and OK.
  • El Nino years usually mean much lower chances of Atlantic Hurricane development and landfall

Fun Paper Friday

This week we look at experiments about how safe different pumpkin carving tools are. Not for the faint of heart!
