I've watched this for years. In the last (perhaps) 20 years, the West Pacific has been building up heat (energy) and letting it gush over the world. We had wonderful summers and mild winters.
GET OVER IT!
This shows us the current currents. All the north Pacific backwash is retreating. Normally, the hot water goes west and there is a return current. This is gone. During the El Nino, all the water reversed alone the Equator and came at us. It then dumped all the heat in West.
This is as solid as my dog running high speed and using your nuts as a brake. Poor new boyfriend. :)
