Are all the oceans getting warmer?



  1. 0 Votes

    A rise in both temperature and acidity in the Pacific and North Atlantic oceans lead researchers to believe the oceans of the world are steadily getting warmer. Over the past 200 years the oceans have only had the capacity to absorb about half of the CO2 released into the atmosphere, and as that number has risen, so has the ocean temperature. Although the change is very gradual, warmer oceans means it could change the atmosphere temperature by an increase of 9 degrees C (48.2 F).
