Oceans are warming dramatically faster, new study warns – CBS News

A new study finds the world’s oceans are warming significantly faster than previously thought. The analysis, published Thursday in the journal Science, raises the stakes for curbing climate change.

The study examined four new or updated Ocean Heat Content records — a fancy term for measuring how warm the ocean is, taking into account deeper water, not just surface temperatures — and finds the ocean warming is significantly higher than estimated in the last comprehensive report by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2013.
