Alarmante subida global da temperatura do mar

By Ninian Carter

May 8, 2024 - Os oceanos do mundo bateram recordes de temperatura todos os dias
no ano passado, segundo a análise dos últimos dados do Serviço Copérnico de Alterações Climáticas da UE.

Planet-warming climate change gases are the main culprit, although the El Niño natural weather event has also contributed to warmer seas.

Copernicus also confirms that April’s air temperature was the warmest on record, extending a consistent run of 11 straight months of heat records.

For decades, our oceans have been absorbing around 25% of human-made carbon dioxide and soaking up around 90% of the planet’s excess heat.

However, over the past year, the oceans have displayed concerning evidence that they are now struggling to cope.
