Ocean Temperatures Rising Faster Than Previously Reported


Research in the journal Science said ocean temperatures are rising faster than previously concluded. Scientists found several problems with the way ocean temperatures were previously measured. According to the Huffington Post, the warming is caused from greenhouse gases released by human activity. This warming affects increased sea levels, coral reef destruction and declining ocean oxygen levels, among more. The United Nations recently released a report warning the world is running out of time to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Even Computers Can't Believe Arctic Temps Are Rising As Fast As They Are

    A weather station in America’s northernmost city of Utqiaġvik has been quietly collecting temperature data since the 1920s.

  • Rising Ocean Temperatures Lead Lobsters Fishers to Other Work

    Studies of lobster populations on the Eastern seaboard have shown a demographic shift north. The trend is driving lobstermen in Connecticut and Rhode Island out of business, ending a centuries-old way of life. Robert Bradfield, a former Newport, Rhode Island, lobsterman, is among those who have gotten out of the business because of the declining catch. Bradfield fondly recalls summer hauls in the 1990s when his traps would be bursting with up to 2,000 pounds of lobsters per day. Before he quit a decade ago, catches had plummeted to maybe 100 pounds. Rhode Island issued 874 commercial lobster licenses in 2013, down from nearly 1,600 in 1998, and the number of lobster traps set by Rhode Island fishermen in southern New England waters has dropped by more than half since 2007.
