The Oceans Are Warming Even Faster Than We Previously Thought

“The oceans have long been considered our planet’s heat sponge – a 2014 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated that the oceans had absorbed 93% of the excess heat that greenhouse gases have trapped within the Earth’s atmosphere. However, a recent study shows that the world’s oceans have absorbed 60% more heat over the past 25 years than initially thought.
According to the lead author, Dr. Laure Resplandy, “If the ocean was only 30 feet [9 meters] deep, our data show that it would have warmed by 6.5 °C [11.7 °F] every decade since 1991. In comparison, the estimate of the last IPCC assessment report would correspond to a warming of only 4 degrees Celsius (7.2 degrees Fahrenheit) every decade.””
