A deep dive into the impacts of climate change on our oceans.

The oceans play a critical role in regulating the earth's climate and are often overlooked ecosystems during climate change discussions. Climate change is having devastating effects on the ocean, and as the world's largest ecosystem, it covers 70% of the planet.

If it wasn't for the ocean, the world would already be uninhabitable. This is because the ocean has protected us from the worst side effects by already absorbing more than 90% of the heat generated by humans. If this heat had gone into the atmosphere, the global average temperature would have already increased by 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Unfortunately, there is a limit to how much heat the oceans can absorb, and they are beginning to reach their threshold. We have a lot to thank the oceans for, and it's about time we show the oceans the respect that it deserves.

Throughout this article, we will look into specific consequences of ocean warming and what effects it is having on both humans and wildlife.
