      Time was when people looked heavenward and prayed, “Ye a Gods, give us rain, keep drought away.” Today there are those who pray. “Give us rain, keep El Nino a away.”
      El Nino and its atmospheric equivalent called the Southern Oscillation, are together referred to as ENSO and are household words today. Meteorologists recognize it as often being responsible for natural disaster worldwide. But this wisdom dawned only after countries suffered, first from the lack of knowledge, and then from the lack of coordination between policy making and the advance in E scientific knowledge.
      Put simply, El Nina is a weather event restricted to certain tropical shores, epically the a Peruvian coast. The event has diametrically opposite impacts on the land and sea. The Peruvian shore is a desert. But every few years, an unusually warm ocean current El Nino warms up the normally cold Surface-waters of the Peruvian coast, causing very heavy rains in the early half of the year. And then, miraculously, the desert is matted green. Crops like cotton, coconuts and banana , grow on the other wise stubbornly barren land. These are the Peruvians' anos de adundencia or years of abundance. The current had come to be termed El Nino. or the Christ Child because it usually appears as an enhancement if a mildly warm current that normally occurs heraround every Christmas.
      But this boon on land is accompanied by oceanic disasters. Normally. the waters Off the South American coast are among the most productive in the world because of a constant up swelling of nutrient rich cold waters from the ocean depths. During an El Nino. however waters are stirred up only from near the surface. The nutrient-crunch pushes down primary production. disrupting the food chain. Many marine species. including anchoxeta [anchovies] temporarily disappear.
      This is just one damming effect of El Nino. Over the years its full impact has been studied and what the Peruvians once regarded as manna, is now seen as a major threat.
