Boy year or girl year? Well then, according to the US NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), 2023 will be the time of the first of the aforementioned phenomena, since the waters of the equatorial Pacific will return to a neutral state between March and May, after in the last three years it happened that these same waters had temperature values ​​below normal, according to the meteorologist Mario Picazo, who recently warned about this “dreaded” phenomenon.

This same forecast points to the development of conditions for the boy in the second half of the year.

The equatorial Pacific warms up to 3 degrees Celsius above average cyclically every 2 to 7 years, giving rise to El Niño, while the cooling of the waters causes La Niña.

The famous meteorologist explained that “a change in the cycle is approaching that will severely affect the behavior of the climate”. ‘El Niño’ will settle in different areas of the planet, “including Europe” It is he calls it “feared phenomenon”. All of this will happen in a year when it is possible that the planet will exceed 1.5 degrees due to climate change.

The predictable effects caused by El Niño in 2023: a global warming of the planet of 0.2 degrees Celsius on average; colder in Europe during the winter, mainly in the northern countries of the continent; in Australia, drought and strong heat wave that would favor forest fires; floods in the coastal areas of Peru and Ecuador, while in the Amazon and northeastern Brazil there will be droughts; less productive crops in South America; less absorption of carbon dioxide by the planet’s jungle areas and more outbreaks of diseases transmitted by insects, among other evils.
