  1. Antonis Fourtounas

    Hallo Anton, I am trying to find the diagram of the history of el nino/la nina that you present in the video without any luck. Could you please provide a link? Thank you

  2. Zac Zach

    Can you make a video about man made solar effects from phased array radar systems?

  3. Hyppotalamus

    Been learning so much since i discovered this channel, another wonderful video you wonderful Anton.

  4. Solstice Project

    I remember really well when it was 11.5, not 11. I don’t know why that changed, but my whole life it’s been 11.5.

  5. Sausage McMuffin

    All new information to me. I was only ever aware of the solar maximums and minimums. I gotta read up this. Thanks.

  6. John Everett

    It’s called ‘El Nino’ because it occurs or begins around the end of December, roughly corresponding to Christmas, or the birth of ‘the baby boy’, ‘El nino’. The opposite phenomenon being opposite ‘El Nino’, it is called ‘El Nina’, the ‘baby girl’

  7. webchimp

    Terminator event, no sunspots, but they’ll be back.

  8. joxer96

    Fires in Australia: Unfortunately solar cycles can’t help predict arson and human carelessness.

  9. BongoTM

    I thought we had already known this for many years, or my school teacher was way ahead of the curve (I’m 58)

  10. Thomas George Castleberry

    Ever hear of a “La Bamba” event, when you do the Limbo with a Lumox? If you do this you develop an Nino

  11. Mee Mow

    Never had this explained so well. Thank you Anton I love this channel

  12. Eleni Demos

    From the drier tropics of Australia, we are currently having the longest wet season in a very long time.

  13. mark verberne

    Ola maravillosa persona!
    Donde esta la bibliotheca?

  14. Jason Holmes

    In Australia, when the recent transition occurred, it was very dramatic. Massive fires one minute, floods the next.

  15. claude major

    You need to get in touch with Suspicious Observers Anton, he has been talking about this for years.

  16. Klaus Bolvig

    An impressive amount of information everyday! Wonderful discipline of work rate .

  17. Ünal Özel

    such a wonderful greeting :-) i love this guy!!! “Hello wonderful person” who says that today to you??? thanks @Anton Petrov <3

  18. William Thomas

    Not unexpected. James McCanney has been pointing out the correlation for a few decades now….. Thank you for the video though Anton!! Always enjoyable!

  19. Captain America

    Hello wonderful Anton, this is person!!🤗🤗

    Thank you for continuing to educate us on the wonders of life, the universe and everything!!

  20. Raideur Ng

    I’d be interested to see what sigma rating this study roughly had. I didn’t see that in the study but I could be wrong.

  21. Marx’s Mescaline Plug

    I don’t know why but I find Anton kinda adorable, he’s just so wholesome

  22. Hobbel Wobble

    Your videos proved us with a front row insight to some of the newest breakthroughs we as a society are making. For that is a Nobel act and I am profoundly great full, blessings to ya Anton! Being called a “wonderful person” is very nice :)

  23. Old Bastard

    As an Australian farmer i can contest that there is a seventy year cycle in our weather as well. Completely related to long term pacific and Indian ocean cycles which both have an influence on the southern Antarctic modulation

  24. Michael james

    ‘The Terminator Event’? Probably that time my friends and I, binge-watched all the ones with Schwarznegger in them. Had no idea of, the global weather havoc I was wreaking.

  25. Justin Abramson

    All of the greatest tornado seasons in the last hundred correlate with the solar minimum and maximum. I did some research years ago. I don’t remember what inspired me but if you simple line up the timeliness its flawless.

  26. Benjamin Joe

    wow super interesting, thanks

  27. Lindsay Heyes

    Hey Anton, your videos are fascinating and always super clear. Could you do a video about space-time manifolds and their possibilities for navigation of spacecraft? I am having difficulty visualising them. How are they used in slingshots, for example, how plastic are they, and if we could see them, what would they look like? And is there a name for the analytical method that optimises routes?

  28. objBobby

    As a person that lives in AZ, I’m slightly sad you left it out 😥

  29. David Hollins

    It is funny really – most people had not heard of El Niño until about 2000. It got me in 1983. I was supposed to be going to Peru on one of these twenty people on a lorry trips, but there was a Nino in October and the truck was wrecked in a riverbed. So, I went to Tanzania. I went to Peru in 88 and saw the representation of El Niño on the adobe walls of Chan Chan.

  31. Randy Silva

    Could it have something to do with Neutrino flux?

  32. Jason Schultz

    Anton is the best! Thanks for all you do, wonderful person.

  33. racer98

    Nice +1

  34. Anita Reason To Believe

    3302. Wow. It makes sense now that they say it. We love Anton!

  35. Eric Knight

    No matter the topic, always wonderful.

  36. MandaLynn

    Now that was not only interesting but useful

  37. Praxis

    I’m watching from Vancouver CA. Greetings to all the fellow humans out there!.

  38. Wayne Harrison

    Anton, I generally love all your “wonderful” vid’s… but this, the suns solar cycle video is one of my favourites. So there for one of your greatest. In one word… brilliant! 🌞👍👍

  39. Alex Bradford

    Awesome video!

  40. Watch my kitten video! ツ

    From a spanish speaker (Chile) I’m impressed at how good you pronounce “El niño/La niña” o.o

  41. Alejandro Orendain

    Great Spanish, Anton!

  42. Carleetoes

    Amazing video I understood it a lil, also great job on the pronunciation of El Niño and La Niña

  43. Mike S

    Very cool, a great mystery. Surprising that AI didn’t discover this correlation.

  44. sweetlowsounds

    I think you reversed El Niño and La Niña conditions at least in California . El Niño events come with an unusual amount of rain here lasting as you said, 5 months. While La Niña will bring dry conditions that appear to last longer.

  45. Brian Vernon

    Just sailed into Monterey,CA from Seattle so i could have service…. to watch Anton’s videos. ❤️

  46. Juan Montero

    Science made easy. Thank you Anton, you are a wonderful person!

  47. Anima Videography

    I’m sitting in bed in the dark here at 4:42 am and I’m DEFINITELY going to sleep after this one Anton lol. Greetings from Ireland by the way… 🇮🇪😆

  48. Bob Sagit

    You are a smart guy i know you can pause calm yourself and listen to voice overs on pronunciation and how to be more free of accent with practice

  49. 4zap7

    If I stare at satellite imagery of earth long enough I lose sense of what I’m looking at , I know this is unrelated to the video but this universe and earth are just incomprehensibly fascinating to me

  50. hang da clown

    considering the sun is a vital piece of the climate as we know it, I’m honestly surprised that this and other celestial events have not been looked at in this light before

  51. John Smith

    All the years of man, weather has always kept it’s mystery. We can’t hope to wrest understanding easily or swiftly.

  52. K Kampy

    Damn, only 11 minutes but packed with information and great imagery.

  53. Steve Skelley

    In the 80s CA. Experienced El Nino it was an extrenme amount of rainfall,much flooding and mudslides caused many deaths .Real bad but stopped the drought in its tracks.

  54. Lowenstaat

    Thanks for this excellent analysis.

  55. Jason Runion

    Man. You make the most interesting videos. And you always take topics and break them down in a way thats easy to understand. Keep up the great work

  56. ewqdsacxz765

    Solar cycles are such an important, overlooked subject. Thank you for paying attention to it, Anton.

  57. Sheal Dedmon

    It’s definitely unusual!

  58. Mika Peltokorpi

    I deduced this connection already in 80’s as both are around 11 years cycles. Naturally correlation is not necessarily meaning causality, but anyways…

  59. David B

    Hello wonderful person, in the Hudson Bay region in Canada where gravity is less does time move faster or slower are there any studies


    Right there in front of us. Like to thank the person’s who asked the question and took the time to study this. Well done.

  61. Kenny Carter

    Just moved to pensacola Florida. Maybe I moved here at the start of 22 years of frequent tropical cyclones!

  62. James Aron

    Wonderful El Niño/La Nina 22-year sunspot cycle correlation

  63. Rob Downs

    Thanks, very good discussion. ENSO phase impacts catastrophes, so better understanding of the ENSO and other cycles is great!

  64. AppNasty

    Hello wonderful Anton, I am person.

  65. Buttsore In84

    I swear to god I learned about this in the 90s in highschool, atmosphere and space class, elective science credit. This definitely is not a new idea in any way, shape or form.

  66. Patty Sherwood

    I learned about La Niña by reading the adventures of Tristan Jones. He sailed little sailboats around the world and wrote wonderful stories about all his amazing experiences. He mentioned La Niña in his book about sailing up the Amazon and ending up in Lake Titicaca . He had his boat trucked over land a short distance to get there. In that book he describes the Amazon as a vast river with chunks of land like islands covered with trees floating toward the sea. And he ran out of food on that journey, so he caught and ate a capybara ( the world’s largest rodent)by slicing it up and eating the steaks raw.

  67. PhantomHotty

    i live by a simple code. i seenew anton upload. i click

  68. Andrew Howard

    Good Stuff! I hope they include the IOD (Indian Ocean dipole) as well, as these two systems are linked. Fascinating to think how the Suns polarity can impact a large ocean-air oscillation.

  69. OnlyARide

    “a transition from El Niño to La Niña”

    i snickered

  70. protoword

    Borg: “Your resistance is futile.” Anton’s shirt: “It is pointless to resist” Both are about Universe and yes, I cannot resist to all these great videos of yours! Thank you!

  71. MrHoodlum420

    Great! Now I’ll know exactly what years the surf will be up… just watch the solar cycles! Got the best waves of my life in the last El Niño!

  72. Vampirerockstar

    “Terminator events” I love the naming conventions for some of this stuff

  73. Patricia Flores

    Anton, I have liked you for a long time but now that I hear you speaking in Spanish, I like you more! 🥰

  74. José Barría

    As a native spanish speaker, your pronunciation of El niño y La niña are perfect.

  75. Eli Nope

    I love the sun. I dream of fire and ashes.

  76. Intune Media Resources

    This is where I come for all my Science news and updates. Anton is a more legit and to the point version of Bill Nye.. Can we call him Anton the Science Guy!? Much love Anton! Love your videos!

  77. alfonso payra

    Tienes buena pronunciación en español persona maravillosa!

  78. The Rogue Rockhound

    777k subs-Must be good luck today ^^

  79. Vitruvian Man

    Australia’s climate is drastically affected by these phenomena. We have just had one of the wettest summers and it was actually quite cool compared to the previous summer when we had the huge bushfires. Cycles in the Indian ocean also affect us.

  80. CD S

    As a Ham radio hobbyist I am look forward to the increase in sunspot activity.
    As they make the ionosphere more reflective to HF radio bands allowing for long range communications

  81. jonny-five

    I’m not sure about the rest of North America, but El Niño events bring lots of rain and snow to California, and La Niña is the one that brings drought. El Niño years always mean great skiing and snowboarding here : )

  82. Gerrie

    Hello Wonderful Anton :o)

  83. Johnny Jazz

    Thanks for daily science fix 😁

  84. Mr.Faust Faun Fable


  85. Mr.Faust Faun Fable


  86. HighLiner15

    Interesting stuff.
    Btw 🧡 the STAR WARS VADER tee shirt 👕 my beautiful person! 😎👍

  87. Andrew James

    I’m in line to pay for my groceries. And I’m enjoying your videos

  88. Mr.Faust Faun Fable


  89. Wadderyu Dewn

    man, your channel has such a wide variety of interesting content that you present very well. Really glad you popped up in my recommendations last night. I’ve got a lot to binge.

  90. Kidderr Gaming

    I love being here this early almost every day. If you videos ever stop I’m going to feel so lost.

  91. WhitefirePL

    Fascinating. I guess it is pointless to resist :)

  92. MC's Creations

    Pretty interesting. And it makes some sense…

  93. Nate D.

    Wait, you mean, the Sun effects our weather? Never saw that coming.

  94. Eli In the Wolverine Stat

    Great video on solar cycles and weather effects. Add in apsides and 2 more pieces of the puzzle are shown. The perihelon and aphelon matter.

  95. Master Skywalker

    Awesome t-shirt Anton!!!!

  96. Laiba Gul

    Oh gosh I’m late but the sun is hot af 🥵

  97. Peter Roberts

    It is pointless to resist watching Anton’s new video

  98. Monkey D. Luffy

    This is huge, I live in a country that sits in the Pacific Ring of Fire where El Niño and La Niña can be have a huge impact

  99. Alejandro Bejarano

    I’m outside a Walmart in Texas eating popcorn chicken and enjoying your videos.

  100. 18 Bees

    This subject is fascinating. When the sun decides to do something odd it’s not normally good for humans.
