worse than we thought – ocean warming!

People are already familiar with the idea of global warming, but new data shows that we might be underestimating just how fast global warming is taking place right now.

Paul Durack and his colleagues from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have come to the conclusion that estimates of ocean warming for the southern hemisphere have been miscalculated; the actual number could actually more than double than originally thought.

This means that in total, the world’s oceans are actually around 24 to 58 percent warmer than thought.
