WHAT'S ALARMING

Our oceans have absorbed much of the heat produced by increasing CO2 levels.  Thermal expansion from  increased temperatures accounts for about 40% of the global sea-level rise observed over the last 60 years. 2016 average sea-surface temperatures were the warmest on record.  Warmer temperatures contributed to significant coral bleaching, causing the loss of corals supporting thousands of species of marine life.  Fish species migrating to cooler waters have disrupted fishing villages and commercial fisheries.
