I have found a new review paper squarely within this topic of "Climate Driver Discussion". It covers many matters and relationships in lines of climate research that I was only vaguely aware of, if I had even heard of them.
It is a guest post by "Javier", Part IV in a series "Nature Unbound" in Judith Curry's blog "Climate Etc."

The first line suggests the content: "Climate variations that alter the angular momentum of the atmosphere...".

From the Conclusions:
"1) Excessive variation in the speed of rotation of the Earth, as measured by the length of day (deltaLOD), is affected by alterations in the angular momentum of the atmosphere due to changes in tropospheric and stratospheric winds that are driven among other things by ENSO and insolation variations."

"3) The solar cycle, Quasi-Biennial Oscillation, and ENSO, determine the status of the ozone layer in the winter Northern Hemisphere stratosphere and through it, the status of the Polar Vortex and winter weather."

I am particularly interested that the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation is mentioned. Apparently it affects northern hemisphere climate in particular. Australian climate has a strong quasi-biennial oscillation, but I don't think it matches the stratospheric one closely.
I have finally re-posted my 2010 post on the Australian QBO. which had lost its graphics.
It is both on the "Observations of Climate Variation thread here , and on my blog, here.

I wonder what will happen if no rain has fallen by April? Townsville will have to start pumping from the Burdekin Dam which could have it's own problems.
