Greenhouse gases continue to adversely affect our lives in every way. A dangerous signal came from the oceans. According to estimates, ocean waters that warm to 40% faster are an indication of disasters that may occur in the near future.
The damage that greenhouse gases give to the planet and hence the lives of living things is now known by the whole world. In addition to the personal efforts of the people, the efforts of institutions, organizations and governments to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases unfortunately did not prevent the oceans from reaching a dangerous heat.
An analysis published in the Science magazine revealed that the ocean waters are warming 40% more than the UN estimates have made five years ago. This fast warming means that there will be a 30% rise in sea and ocean waters by the end of the century. Researchers noted that the highest temperature recorded was reported in 2018. They warn the world that this situation would lead to catastrophic disasters such as storms, hurricanes and heavy rains.
The heat of the oceans also negatively affects the marine ecosystem. It causes the destruction of sea creatures. The oceans absorb more than 90% of the gases released into the atmosphere. As it can efficiently store heat, it continues to increase temperature at an unexpected speed. Researchers say that even if the production of greenhouse gases stops today, it will take years for the oceans to cool down.
