Global Warming is becoming one of the most dangerous things the Earth has seen in its history and the latest news from oceans prove the same. According to a recent study by a group of scientists, 2018 was recorded as the hottest year for the oceans. It means the temperature in oceans had risen so much that it did break all the previous records.
This has happened because oceans are absorbing a huge amount of heat that is dissipated by greenhouse gases across the globe. Of course, in the past decades, the emission rates of these gases have been increasing without any limit. From 1990s, the pace of ocean warming had increased exponentially, as to cause major issues in the long run. Of course, the hotter oceans once again prove how fatal global warming can be in the long run.
Of course, we don’t have to wait for decades to see the impact of the hotter oceans. Across the globe, a big number of issues have started popping up, including hurricanes and destruction of coral reefs. On top of all these, the sea levels are rising, which can be quite capable of damaging livelihood of thousands of people — especially those who live nearby the ocean.
The study once again proves that global warming has some irreversible impacts on the earth and most importantly the oceans. While considering the heat thresholds of each year of the previous decade, the total number has been rising quite notably. In fact, every year has been breaking the records that were set in the previous year.
Increase of emissions has also played an eminent role here. Despite the warnings from various sources, not many leaders have taken the steps to control the emissions. Donald Trump has been, for instance, noted for promoting projects that use fossil fuel instead of renewable energy sources.
