What part of the world has seen the highest increase of temperature?

    The highest temperature change is thought to be in the oceans. Since 90% of solar energy is captured by oceans and another percentage of the leftover 10% goes toward melting glaciers, the surface of the Earth has actually seen very little relative heating. Since 2003, scientists have noticed that they cannot track where much of the heat is going. There is a difference in how much energy is entering and leaving the atmosphere, but the increase in Earth’s surface heat does not account for a good chunk of it. Therefore they think that most of the global warming heat is being trapped deep in the oceans where they don’t/can’t monitor temperatures very closely.
