Environment: Greenhouse gas linked to weather system

"To me, it's just the like a pot on the fire," says Bekuretsion Kassahun. "You think the heat is being distributed evenly, but there's always one part which heats up more quickly than the rest. That's what El Nino is - I believe that it's caused by global warming, and that it's just the first place, the very beginning of the effects which are going to be felt."
