IPCC landmark report warns about the state of the oceans, polar ice content and the climate crisis

AGreenLiving

Warming ocean temperatures are becoming commonplace and are melting ice sheets and glaciers and contributing to rising sea levels. Additionally, the warm waters affect the ocean’s oxygen levels. In this way, the oceans play a significant role in global climate regulation. Rising global temperatures are making oceans warmer through marine heatwaves. Warm ocean water is less likely to hold oxygen, leading to subsequent ocean acidification.
