Ramirez-Guerrero, Hugo. 2015. El Nino and La Nina do deserve, expect and claim Tropical Aid. Opinion article wrote during Sabbatical leave in Tonga (2014 - 2015).

 

Many people are already aware and facing multiple effects from El Nino and La Nina influences such as droughts, floods, high or low extreme temperatures and moistures, storms, cyclones and other meteorological events mainly occurring in tropical and subtropical places. These impacts cause low crop yield, poverty, new pests and diseases and human and animal migration among other terrible consequences, including various social, politic and economic problems. There are plenty of definitions of El Nino and la Nina; however, as any concerned tropical citizen, I would like to share with you my own simple understanding of it, together with some humble recommendations.
