World’s Oceans Are Warming Faster, Studies Show, Fueling Storms and Sea Rise

‘Global warming is here, it has major consequences, and it’s going to be very, very difficult to get this under control,’ an author of a new report says.

A new study published Thursday strengthens the consensus that the warming of the world’s oceans is accelerating.

It’s a trend that climate models have long predicted, but it had been difficult to confirm until recently.

The findings are vindication of the scientific community’s work so far and lend greater weight to the projections for warming through the end of this century, said Gavin Schmidt, a leading climate scientist at Columbia University who was not involved in the study.

The new paper, published in the journal Science, reviews four studies conducted over the past decade and was partly a response to a controversy over one of them, an article published in the journal Nature on Nov. 1. The authors of the November article were forced to issue a correction after discovering they had made errors in their assumptions and that the uncertainty in their findings was much greater than they had thought.
