Why did the world’s biggest ocean melt?
The world’s oceans are melting faster than ever before, and as a result, the seas are warming more than at any time since records began.
What caused this sudden surge?
One of the biggest culprits is the burning of fossil fuels.
Fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas produce huge amounts of greenhouse gases.
They also emit huge amounts in heat and acid.
In the last few decades, a number of nations have tried to stop these greenhouse gases from reaching the atmosphere and the resulting rise in temperature is putting increasing pressure on the oceans.
However, while some countries have been successful, most have failed.
This has left the oceans as the biggest greenhouse gas problem on the planet.
The oceans, however, are still warming faster than the rest of the planet, so we should expect the problem to continue for decades to come.
What’s happening in the oceans?
As oceans absorb carbon dioxide, they also release methane, a greenhouse gas which has a strong warming effect.
This is particularly bad for marine life because methane is a potent greenhouse gas.
The planet has been absorbing a huge amount of methane from the atmosphere, which means the oceans are warming at twice the rate as the rest.
That is creating a huge problem for the marine environment and it is likely to continue into the 21st century.
But where will this lead?
As climate change continues, the oceans will continue to warm faster than they have for hundreds of years.
This means that the world will be warmer by 2100 than it is today.
This could mean more severe weather events, more intense flooding, more extreme weather events and more intense heatwaves.
But what about the sea?
The oceans are the worlds largest and most sensitive ecosystem.
As such, they have the potential to affect global weather patterns and affect food chains.
As the world has warmed, the sea has warmed faster than it has in the past.
That means the seas have warmed faster and the water has warmed more rapidly.
The warmer the water is, the more the water’s surface temperature increases.
So if the sea becomes more acidic, that would mean more evaporation of the ocean water, which could affect the ocean’s water chemistry.
This would lead to higher evapotranspiration rates, which would lead eventually to more evapoilless water, where the ocean becomes saturated and the surface water is less acidic.
What can we do about it?
The ocean is one of the most important ecosystems on the globe and it will take a while for it to fully recover from the impact of the warming and acidification.
But scientists are working hard to try and slow the pace of ocean warming.
This includes a global effort called the Great Barrier Reef Restoration Project, which aims to protect reefs and marine life, and is being funded by the Federal Government.
The Reef Restoration project is funded by Environment Australia, which is the national body that runs the Great Reef Marine Park.
In addition, Australia has its own national Coral Reef Restoration Plan.
Both these projects have their own goals.
One of these is to limit the rate at which the oceans absorb CO2.
Another is to improve the oceanic food web.
Both of these are aimed at slowing the rate of the oceans increasing acidity.
And finally, one of these projects is to use technology to reduce the carbon footprint of ocean-going vessels.
But there is a catch.
The technologies we are trying to use, such as carbon capture and storage, are currently expensive and have a very limited use in the world.
In fact, the most recent study by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Marine Sciences found that capturing CO2 from the oceans has a cost of between $2.5 billion and $4 billion.
So, while we are doing our best to reduce our carbon footprint, we are also going to have to look to the future and adapt to climate change.
How much will this affect us?
As the oceans warm, the ocean will absorb more carbon dioxide and as the ocean absorbs more carbon, it releases more heat.
If you take a look at how much carbon is in the atmosphere today, it is about 400 parts per million.
This makes it the highest in the planet and it means the planet is currently producing about 10 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.
However that is only a tiny fraction of what is actually released into the atmosphere.
If the oceans continue to rise at their current rate, the CO2 released will be about 100 million tonnes per year.
This amount is equivalent to the emissions of around 15 million cars a year.
So we have a problem, and it won’t be solved overnight.
How do we tackle it?
One option is to change our lifestyle.
As oceans become more acidic and the carbon cycle slows down, we need to make more use of carbon-neutral technologies.
For example, a carbon capture plant in the Great Australian Bight in Western Australia has already made a significant impact on the amount of CO2 that is being released into space and it can help slow down the rate that the oceans releases CO2 into
