Worlds oceans were the hottest ever recorded in 2022

The world’s oceans were the hottest ever recorded in 2022, demonstrating
the profound and pervasive changes that human-caused emissions have made to
the planet’s climate. More than 90% of the excess heat trapped by
greenhouse gas emissions is absorbed in the oceans.

The records, starting
in 1958, show an inexorable rise in ocean temperature, with an acceleration
in warming after 1990. Sea surface temperatures are a major influence on
the world’s weather. Hotter oceans help supercharge extreme weather,
leading to more intense hurricanes and typhoons and more moisture in the
air, which brings more intense rains and flooding. Warmer water also
expands, pushing up sea levels and endangering coastal cities.
