JAKARTA – Climate change has had a very significant impact on the Earth. Currently it is said that the temperature of the oceans has reached its highest in history enough to threaten survival on Earth.
According to the EU’s climate change service, Copernicus, the global average daily sea surface temperature reached 20.96 degrees Celsius this week, beating the previous record set in 2016.
That’s far above the average so far this year, which is around 16 degrees Celsius, as compiled by Metro on Tuesday (8/8/2023).
Ocean warming is of great concern because it has a number of negative impacts on the health of the Earth. For example, warmer oceans can cause more extreme weather events, such as hurricanes and cyclones.
The Earth’s oceans absorb large amounts of heat trapped in the atmosphere by greenhouse gases, helping to regulate the climate and prevent it from overheating. If this is already too hot, it will go bad.
Warmer ocean temperatures can release more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In addition to this, warm oceans can also cause coral bleaching which negatively impacts ecosystems and underwater survival.
