El Nino or god?

Some evidence here to support the 'act of god' hypothesis about the cause of the Cumbrian floods.
But the El Nino effect - warming of the ocean - is present in the Pacific and could be causing this chaos.
Any extreme weather event raises suspicions of climate change but weather patterns are so hard to pin down it is impossible to say what caused something until it's too late to change the causes.
Forecasting is such an important area maybe it's time we pumped some more money into research to improve its accuracy.
