LONDON – The world's oceans are rising up, as predicted, because they absorb most of the world's most volatile climate fluctuations, scientists say on Thursday.
The heat of the ocean – recorded by thousands of mobile robots – the final record is recorded in the last decade, despite the hottest of 2018, shifted to the 2017 record, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
That is why sea levels rise and the oceans warm and expand and help fuel hurricanes and other extreme weather, scientists warn.
The warming rate since 1960, according to the 2013 Climate Change Panel's report, was published according to a study published in the 2013 journal of scientists surveyed by ocean warming.
"Above all, the accumulation of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide in the atmosphere caused by human activities," said Lijing Cheng, the Chinese Research Academy's leading scientist.
The warming rate of the ocean is growing "in the atmosphere is just a signing of greenhouse gas emissions," said Cheng.
Climate scientists said in a year ago that the world had spent 12 years moving to more efficient global emissions of renewable energies, or the risk of some of the worst impacts of climate change.
Water and food deficits increase, with strong storms, heat waves and other extreme weather, and rising seas.
In the past 13 years, an ocean-based system known as Argo is used to control changes in the ocean temperature, said Cheng, to obtain more reliable data, based on new ocean heat records.
This system uses almost 4,000 ocean robots at depths of almost 2,000 meters every day, when temperatures and other indicators float on the surface.
According to the data collected, scientists had higher intensity of temperature and storms, 2017 Hurricanes in 2017 and Florencia in 2018.
Cheng has explained that oceans are a source of energy for storms and that they can potentiate higher temperatures as a moderate energy.
The 2050-2100 storm is expected to be stronger than 1950-2000 storms, the scientist said.
Cheng said that the oceans absorb more than 90% of solar power that continues to emit rising energy so that high temperatures will continue to rise in the future.
"Because the ocean has high heat potentials," global warming "is not a delay, which means that ocean warming is more severe in the future," said the researcher.
"For example, if we meet the Paris Convention (limiting climate change), oceans will continue to warming and sea levels will continue to rise, and their impact will continue."
The planned targets in Paris with a reduction of "2 degrees" or, if possible, a reduction of 1.5, but the expected damage could fall by 2100, said Cheng.
For now, however, emissions are continuing to change the climate, and "I do not think it's enough to tackle rising temperatures," said Cheng.
