2021 ocean temperatures were the warmest on record
Impact, Water January 12, 2022

Scientists warn of greater likelihood of extreme weather, heightened risks posed by sea-level rise and lower carbon absorption by oceans after sixth straight year of record-breaking temperatures.

In 2021, the oceans absorbed heat equivalent to seven Hiroshima atomic bombs detonating each second, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The rapid heating of the oceans as the planet warms also has a major impact on future warming, making it increasingly difficult to slow down.
