The world's oceans have been warming for generations, a trend that is accelerating and threatens to fuel more supercharged storms.
That warming — which the scientists said probably is irreversible through 2100 — is poised to continue, and to create new hot spots around the globe, 'Unprecedented' warming indicates climate crisis is taking place before our eyes, experts say. This could be the reason that streaming services pulled shows like The Man Who fell To Earth in order to protect the profits of big oil and gas despite the seed up of the planets demise. One scientist was quoted as saying the planet will be here but it is increasingly doubtful humanity will unless people wake up. The recent, rapid heating of the world's oceans has alarmed scientists concerned that it will speed up global warming and close the door to rectifying it.
Oceans absorb more than 90 percent of the excess heat trapped within the world’s atmosphere — the profound implications if the warming continues unabated are that the areas near the surface of the oceans could warm up to six times as much as they already have! The warming has been accelerating, and the most rapid warming rates have been in the last 10 years. About 50 percent of global sea level rise to the effects of thermal expansion in ocean water. Warmer oceans also speed the melting of ice sheets, adding to rising seas.
They disrupt traditional weather patterns and deepen drought in some areas. And they fuel more intense hurricanes, as well as create the conditions for more torrential rainfall and deadly flooding. The Gulf of Mexico's sea surface temperatures are now 2 degrees warmer than they were in 1970. In addition, the UN analysis found that future warming will cause precipitous drops in certain fisheries, causing the loss of livelihoods and food sources. The trend also makes it “inevitable” that marine heat waves will become more extensive and longer-lasting — a reality that has triggered toxic algal blooms turning the ocean green and fueling massive mortality events among coral reefs, kelp forests and other ocean life. The ocean around Cape Cod, Boston Harbor, and all the way north up to Maine is warming faster than just about any body of water in the world even the Gulf of Mexico.
The Gulf of Maine is warming faster than about 95% of the world’s oceans. This year the surface temperature was about 5 degrees above the long-term average. This area is known as the Gulf of Maine. The spike in temperature is already challenging marine life along our coastline. The majority of fish populations in the sea are responding to global warming by relocating towards colder waters nearer the north and south poles, according to the latest research on the impact of climate change on our oceans.
For marine life such as fish, the temperature of the surrounding water affects critical functions such as metabolism, growth and reproduction. Moreover, marine species often have a very narrow livable temperature range making even small differences in the water impossible to cope with. As a result, marine life changes caused by global warming have been up to seven-fold faster than animal responses on land but that is happening as well. Because of that many European nations are closing their borders to African nations and requiring other nations with large BIPOC communities to pay an 8 dollar tax to visit and be more closely monitored in terms of stay duration. Following new travel authorization rules announced by the E.U. under the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS), prospective visitors from more than 60 “visa-exempt” countries, including the United States, will have to fill out an online application and pay a small fee before traveling to any of 30 European countries. Europe gets much of its food from Africa and Asian countries and despite the fact that the demographics are changing quickly they still need immigrant populations to maintain their standards of living.
Climate change will drive a huge increase in the number of migrants seeking asylum in Europe if current trends continue, but an even bigger fear is migrants taking their earnings buying land in their countries of origin and leaving Europeans to fend for themselves with an aging population and near nonexistent birthrate without immigrant numbers!
