In Hot Water: Global Warming Has Accelerated In Past 15 Years, New Study Of Oceans Confirms

New research shows that global warming is accelerating and the so-called “missing heat” of climate change has been found in the deep ocean. Oceans have warmed dramatically over the past 30 years; with 90% of overall global warming going to heating the oceans. The slowed warming of surface air has “lulled people into a false sense and unwarranted sense of security”. The new study, published in Geophysical Research Letters, has found that in the last decade, 30% of warming has occurred at a depth below 700m. The research suggests that arguments for lower climate sensitivity are flawed if they fail to account for the warming of the oceans below 700m.
