A large blob of warm water off New Zealand's east coast is causing drought conditions in South America. A recent report says that the blob emerged naturally in the 1980's, but has warmed much faster due to climate change. 

Louis was joined by Victoria University of Wellington's Dr Kyle Clem to talk about the blob, how it was caused, and the impacts it is having.
