Ocean temperatures hit record high as rate of heating accelerates

Trillion Reasons

The heat in the world’s oceans reached a new record level in 2019, showing “irrefutable and accelerating” heating of the planet. The world’s oceans are the clearest measure of the climate emergency because they absorb more than 90% of the heat trapped by the greenhouse gases emitted by fossil fuel burning, forest destruction and other human activities.

The new analysis shows the past five years are the top five warmest years recorded in the ocean and the past 10 years are also the top 10 years on record. The amount of heat being added to the oceans is equivalent to every person on the planet running 100 microwave ovens all day and all night.

Hotter oceans lead to more severe storms and disrupt the water cycle, meaning more floods, droughts and wildfires, as well as an inexorable rise in sea level. Higher temperatures are also harming life in the seas, with the number of marine heatwaves increasing sharply.

We need world leaders who speak and care about the environment issues. We have these conferences and World goals but those actions must happen within each country 

i live in a country where’s basically allowed to take down and burn the Amazon Forest which is one of the biggest and most important forests in the world and the government gets away with it 

we need to give power to the people who have solutions, like Greta, so they can reach and impact our governments 

A reverse Sneaky-Oliverian expedition

Welcome to a world where certain countries responsible for the biggest contributions to climate change care more about the economy than the environment. I have a strong feeling Earth won’t be a very inhabitable planet by the end of the century if not sooner.

can’t wait until all the politicians who are practising inaction right now play on all the climate change fears (mass immigration, natural disasters) to get elected in 5-10 years time when things are worse :enigma:

True. Populists will give society what it wants.

And yet people wonder why younger generations are foregoing buying a house; getting married and/or starting a family, etc? 

The world is falling apart because of greed and people's complacency along the way because the systems have ensnared us to a life  of consumption to the point of where we can't protest or have much of a voice (have to pay the bills, after all).

Ugh, so frustrating.  Makes me quite sad as someone who finds peace with water/the coasts.  Thank you for sharing, though.

I haven't bought a house cuz the housing market is expensive AF and housing costs alone make having kids unaffordable cuz there's not much left

 

I don't think global warming has anything to do with most people's decision to buy or not buy a house :huh:

 

The younger generation is mostly plagued with income inequality. Truly big impacts in people's lives from climate change especially in the developed world haven't been significantly felt yet... In a couple more decades probably when food becomes expensive AF tho :deadbanana:
