ne of the advantages of living in one part of the world and having in the other is that we can compare the weather. It appears that the weather around the world is quiet unusual for the season in each part.
For example, in North America- OK at least where my parents live, Christmas eve and day there was no snow and temperatures were +12 C. That's unheard of. In NY, there was no snow in winter; a situation not seeen since the 1830s. Here in asia, it's been raining almost continuously since December. In Malayasia, on of its states- the equivalent of a Canadian province- Johor Baru (or just Johor) has been flooded since Christmas and the flodding has become so bad that presently 110 000 people have had to find refuge elsewhere.
From an economic point of view, the flooding will add an enormous strain and some food prices will rise in Singapore. That's because imports all of its food from abroad and most of the fruits and vegetables comes from Malaysia.
Reading the papers, some report that el Niño might be responsible for the crazy weather; other papers hint that the crazy weather is proof of global warming. Me, I'm confused.
